Montrose/Museum District



Developed in 1911, Montrose covers approximately four square miles, bordered by Buffalo Bayou's Allen Parkway on the north, the Museum District and Highway 59 on the south, Bagby and the revitalized Midtown on the east and Upper Kirby District and Shepherd Drive on the west. Find some quiet time at the Menil Collection and neighboring Rothko Chapel, the artistic vision of John and Dominique de Menil. Enjoy the walk to the nearby Byzantine Fresco Chapel Museum, embracing the architecture that houses the rescued 13th century works of art. Stop for lunch at the Black Labrador, with its traditional English fish 'n' chips.Mark's American Cuisine, located in a small 1920s Gothic church, has long been at the top of Houston's culinary scene. Sitting side-by-side around an Italian-inspired piazza, Nino's Restaurant and Vincent's Rotisserie Italian restaurants have been a Houston tradition since 1977. Nino's is the older, and more formal classic spot, while Vincent's, with its wide-open rooms, is more casual and a tad more trendy. And when the day is done, rest assured you'll find peaceful sleep at one of several Montrose B&Bs. Victorian charm and soft featherbeds await you at the 116-year-old Robin's Nest Inn. Lovett Inn, home to former Mayor Joseph Hutcheson, Jr., offers traditional southern charm in a beautifully renovated mansion. Perhaps the ultimate hidden gem of Montrose is La Colombe d'Or Mansion & Le Grand Salon. With six stunning suites and nine opulent villas, it is the smallest luxury hotel in the world. Its award-winning restaurant specializes in modern cuisine from the French Riviera. 21st century Houston is a thriving art nexus, the home of world-class museums, acclaimed art galleries and a huge community of talented artists. At the heart of it all: The Houston Museum District, whose 15 museums and 50-acre zoological park—all within walking distance of one another and accessible by METRO Rail—form one of the largest cultural districts in the country, with more than half a million square feet of exhibition space. It's also one of the most vital in the nation, drawing six million visitors annually. The Museum of Fine Arts and the Contemporary Art Museum house some of the finest masterpieces in the world. If your interest in museums leans toward the historical, do not miss the Holocaust Museum Houston. It is recognized worldwide as a leading source of information about the horrifying events of the Holocaust.
