Hidden Gems in Montrose We Love

A Story By

Hey, HOU! Yeah, HOU! Let’s talk about Montrose! We love a good hidden gem here at Stuff to Do in Houston, and Montrose does not disappoint.  From foodie spots to Insta worthy photo ops there are hidden gems in Montrose for everyone.  

This low-key ice house is one of the best hidden gems in Montrose. With a large selection of beer, wine and cider, West Alabama Ice House is dog friendly and offers $1 billiards, Golden Tee, as well as corn hole and ping-pong.  If none of those games tickle your fancy, you can also play a pick up game of one on one at their basketball hoop! 

While West Alabama Ice House doesn’t have it’s own kitchen, they make up for it by hosting food trucks as well as allowing you to bring your own food.  Tacos Tierra Caliente is also permanently parked across the street for all of your munching needs! 

MON–FRI | 10AM–12AM

SAT | 10AM–1AM

SUN | 12PM–12AM

📍 1919 West Alabama Street Houston, TX 77098

The Patio is an amazing spot right next to the always delicious Pit Room. The Patio has a Louisiana influenced beer list and happy hour Monday through Friday from 2pm–7pm.  This spot is a favorite among Houstonians and we totally see why!

Big crawfish fan?  Be sure to stop by when it’s in season, it’s the some of the best crawfish around!

Strike a pose!  Another one of our favorite hidden gems in Montrose is  Montrose Studios.  This is a professional photography studio were you can find some amazing and creative interactive backgrounds.  

The studio can be rented out for events and family portraits with some flair! Photo shoot anyone?

Bar Boheme is an artsy hideaway that has a unique selection of wines and a full bar with craft beer and cocktails.  Pick a spot on their large outdoor patio while sipping on one of their famous frozen mojitos with the girls!  

Catch the Drag Show Brunch on the second and last Sundays of the month or Belly Dancing every Friday. This is a perfect spot to entertain out of town guests or to grab a drink after work.

Who doesn’t love a good wine and cheese pairing? This hidden gem in Montrose has just that.  Montrose Cheese & Wine boasts a rotation of 12 to 15 cheeses and 125 wines.  Sounds like heaven to us!

There is a great selection of wines that are priced UNDER $40 and a gorgeous spiral staircase that leads to their wine cellar. So grab the gang and sample wine and cheese in their shaded courtyard to your heart’s delight!
