The Houston Heights area has come a long way in the recent years and the area is located in the northwest central part of town. The history of the neighborhood states that a millionaire by the name of Oscar Martin Carter established a company with some investors as wells as about eighteen hundred acres of land, and when Houston Heights was initially founded it was a streetcar suburb. After World War II according to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Houston_Heights) it had become a bad and frail area, but recent improvements have brought the Heights to be a very in area especially down the Washington Corridor. The following are four of the areas hot spots to be seen at.
Ei8ht: This place can be easily missed as there is no sign outside with a name on it and it is located at 5102 Washington Avenue and it has a wonderful patio but if you see a long line outside (even though it goes pretty fast) and an outside deck than you are in the right place. The inside has two floors and on the first one there is a dance area in the middle of it and you can dance to a very diverse type of music from club to eighties.
The Social: This lounge and bar has been on the scene for some time and it is the place to be on Sundays and it is located at 3730 Washington Avenue. The place usually has live DJ’s playing music and they have great cosmopolitans as well as chocolate martinis, and their patio is really big and great for people watching.
Reign: This club is located at 4105 Washington and the club itself is quite big, there are two stories and the “smoking” patio is upstairs. However there is a line after 11:00 P.M so it does take a while to get in but if you like techno music this is the place to be, and the crowd here tends to be pretty young in their early to mid twenties.
Citizen Lounge: This place is more of a lounge even though it is considered a club as they have a DJ that plays hip hop and dance music and it is located at 4606 Washington Ave. The décor of the place could almost remind you of a log cabin and it does have a comfortable feel to it and the majority of the crowd ranges from late twenties to mid to late thirties.
