Market Square Park

300 Travis Houston, TX 77002 | Downtown/ Midtown | 713-224-6133

Location Description:

Smack-dab in the middle of downtown's historic district, Market Square was ringed with bouncer-inhabited nightclubs and young, pretty patrons not that long ago. Now it's a bustling bar area that draws a more professional, mature crowd. Market Square Park is smack-dab in the midst of the bar chaos, and even boasts its own small pavilion area for outdoor concerts, when the weather is nice.
