Midtown Houston Weekend Getaway Tips

Stay at a Stylish Airbnb

There’s a reason we’re singling out the ‘Vibrant 1br/1ba’ apartment we mentioned above. It’s an Airbnb dream – spacious, great location, very clean, and well-rated by the community at just $88 a night. The apartment was decorated by local designers!

This home in particular has received 4.5 out of 5 stars and features both pool and gym access.

Eat All the Food

While you’re in Midtown Houston, you’ve got to try the acclaimed local eats, and it just so happens to be Houston Restaurant Weeks. Click here to see how you can dine for a cause throughout the entire month.

If you prefer to skip straight to dessert, Fluff Bake Bar has got you covered. Fluff is owned by pastry chef Rebecca Masson, who trained at Le Cordon Bleu in France. Her cupcakes, cakes, tarts, pies, cookies and bars are down-to-earth decadence. Give the veruca salt cupcake or milk chocolate cheesecake a try.

Dance, Drink and Delight

You can have more than a little fun at any of Midtown Houston’s engaging night spots. Snack on a thin crust pizza at Piola before making your way to Wooster’s Garden to sip on a house cocktail or beer on tap.

Meander to former post office turned beer and spirit establishment Mongoose versus Cobra. Then, dance all night to DJ music at a club like Cle or open-air location like Capitol Bar Midtown.

No matter how you slice it, Midtown Houston knows how to have a good time. Come stay awhile!
