Weekends in Houston

I recently spent a weekend in Houston, Texas and I must say it was definitely a vibe!

I was only in H-Town for three days, so I’m sure there’s much more to see. But for the time I was there, I visited some really nice spots.

First on the list was a Friday night at Bar 5015 on Almeda. Bar 5015 is a nice spot for the 25 and up crowd. You’d be in for a night of food, drinks, hookah, and hot music and the outdoor seating is a plus. There’s no cover charge. All 5015 asks is for you to place an order.

Next up was Urban Social on Richmond Ave. This club was fairly small, compared to 5015, but it was fun to say the least. You’ll find a mature crowd and a night of both R&B and hip hop music.

Saturday, I started the day with brunch at Grace’s. Grace’s on Kirby is somewhat of upscale dining, offering both indoor and outdoor seating and does not disappoint. There was a bit of a wait, but it was worth it. My appetite was satisfied with gumbo, cajun stuffed chicken, dressing, and green beans. Grace’s is definitely a go-to spot for an afternoon with friends or even a nice date.

No trip is complete without retail therapy. After Grace’s, it was time for some shopping. The Galleria was nice and includes so many desiner brands, such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Fendi, Chanel, Christian Louboutin, and more. The mall has several options for eating and even an ice skating rink in the middle of the mall.

Sunday was all about good food, fun, and a little relaxation. Sunday kicked off with brunch at the Breakfast Klub on Travis St. Initially, I was going to bypass this restaurant because the line was literally wrapped around the building. However, I’m glad that I decided to stick it out. Breakfast Klub is one of the historic spots that you just have to stop at if you’re in town. The staff was friendly and the food was amazing. I suggest catfish and grits.

My trip ended at Kemah Boardwalk. Kemah, Texas is about an hour outside of Houston. The boardwalk is a great spot for a day with the family. Kemah Boardwalk is like the fair, equipped with rides, games, and concession stands. There’s also live music, restaurants, and more.

Can’t wait to visit Houston again!
