My Top 5 Things to Do in Houston
by Christopher Williams
- Bar Boheme – A favorite neighborhood hangout of mine, in my opinion has one of the coolest vibes in all of Houston as well as the best patio around. Every time I walk through the doors, I feel like I’m walking into a European dive bar where I’m sure to find a cold drink and an interesting conversation.
- Sparrow Bar + Cookshop – For me, Sparrow hits the Trifecta; phenomenal food, excellent service and a super cool industrial chic ambiance. Always my go-to when entertaining clients and out-of-town guests. The avocado sashimi and spiked cactus vodka cocktail are my must-haves on every visit.
- Reeves Antiques – Funky, eclectic and cool, walking this shop is always a fun adventure. You can find anything from mid-century modern pieces to off-the-wall art and décor. With an ever-changing inventory, this is treasure hunting at its finest.
- Free Press Summer Fest – Combining two of my favorite things, music festivals and Buffalo Bayou park, this annual music festival has quickly become a respected event on the national scene. Nothing better than enjoying a live show with friends with our amazing downtown skyline as the backdrop. Jack White, Lauren Hill, Dwight Yoakum and Zedd to name a few … enough said.
- Buffalo Bayou Park – My address is always dependent on my proximity to this greenbelt. I am beyond elated with development that is taking place on this section of the bayou. Hike and bike trails, canoe/kayak launch, dog park and running trails create what I consider our urban oasis.
