Downtown skyscrapers view

by Austinite_1

I am looking for a public place or a coffee shop from where I can have a nice downtown skyscrapers view at night. Any ideas?

RE: Downtown skyscrapers view

by bocmaxima

If you're looking to sit for a while, there really isn't that much. Most of the taller buildings surrounding Downtown have their higher floors reserved for the tenants.
One of the more famous shots of the skyline is from the Quitman Street bridge over I-45.
Another good spot is the sculpture garden on the south side of Memorial Drive about 1/4 mile west of Houston Avenue.
However, it's definitely not a good idea to stand around in either of these areas alone at night for very long.

60th floor of Chase Building, downtown, free. I don't know how late it is opened. You get a fantastic view of flat Houston.

If you gonna play in Texas

by Maria250

If you're gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band
That lead guitar is hot but not for "Lousiana Man"
So rosin up that bow for "Faded Love" and let's all dance
If you're gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band

I remember down in Houston we were puttin' on a show
When a cowboy in the back stood up and yelled, "Cotton-Eyed Joe"!
He said, "We love what you're doin', boys don't get us wrong
There's just somethin' missin' in your song"

If you're gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band
That lead guitar is hot but not for "Lousiana Man"
So rosin up that bow for "Faded Love" and let's all dance
If you're gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band

So we dusted off our boots and put our cowboy hats on straight
Them Texans raised the roof when Jeff opened up his case
You say y'all all wanna two-step
You say ya wanna doe-si-doe
Well, here's your fiddlin' song before we go

If you're gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band
That lead guitar is hot but not for "Lousiana Man"
So rosin up that bow for "Faded Love" and let's all dance

Hey, AZ, thank you for singing me along the song & the lyrics! Made my day!

Great Irish Pub - Great Pizza Too!

by H-TownJourneyman about Kenneally's Irish pub

This 2 story Irish Pub located on South Shepherd just north of Westheimer is not only known for it's great, laid back atmosphere and abundance of beers on tap. They also make a pretty good pizza here as well! Kenneally's is very popular with university students around town, as well as people that have long since graduated! In other words, you will find all sorts of people here, and of all different ages. Even with 2 stories of space, it can get quite full in here on the weekends. But there is also additional seating on the outside deck. When the place gets crowded, parking can be a little bit of an issue, as the bar itself has limited parking, and the surrounding businesses are very observant of bar patrons using their spaces, and are quick to phone a towing company to haul your car off. If you happen to be around on St. Patrick's Day in March, this place has one of the best parties in the city for the event! But any day of the week, this is a great place to relax and sip on a pint of Guiness. Oh yeah, and try the pizza, it's great! :) Very Casual

Houston Tip

by semanuel

Churascos is a dress up place (slacks, tie, and jacket or a dress for ladies) and it's a little more expensive, but the other restaurants are more casual (jeans and a button down shirt) and reasonably priced. There are many good restaurants in Houston. I'll just list a few:
Churascos-plantain chips and tender steak,
Good Co. BBQ,
Nit Noi in Rice Village - Thai,
Ginza on San Felipe - excellent sushi

Light Rail

by LiveInHouston

The light rail was inaugurated on January 1, 2004 -- quite an event for this auto-dominated city. For $2 you can ride all day. See downtown, walk in the tunnels; stop by the Museum of Fine Arts, the Contemporary Art Museum, the Museum of Natural Science, Hermann Park, the Medical Center. Have lunch at Treeneard's in fowntown or Artista at the new Wortham Center, with a view of downtown. Walk the park-like campus of Rice University.
