Houston’s incredible art scene has a home in places like Box 13 ArtSpace! This artist-run gallery and studio space has exhibited the best and brightest of Houston’s contemporary and underground artists for over 13 years.
The gallery is only open on Saturdays from 1-5PM, so be sure to plan around their opening hours! We think it’s absolutely worth the trip to see their latest exhibitions or featured performances!
In addition to exhibition showings, Box 13 ArtSpace also provides studio space and resources to established and emerging artists. We love supporting local organizations that are dedicated to expanding our city’s art scene and supporting local artists!
We love shouting out the hottest bars in Houston! Since its launch in 2020, Sixes & Sevens has definitely been grabbing attention lately with its psychedelic atmosphere, wide drink selection, and welcoming staff.
What this bar & restaurant lacks in physical size, it makes up for energy! From your first step inside, you’ll be drawn to the lighted bar and bass-boosted sound system. Enjoy their live DJ at any of their booths inside, or snag a firepit outside (if you can!)
And if you’re still looking for even more things to do in Houston, try a few of our latest guides:
Just in time for seafood season, New Orleans’ beloved Acme Oyster House has opened here in Houston!
Fans of the French Quarter outfit will be delighted to know that they can find their long-time favorites on the Houston menu, including the raw oysters, po’boys, etouffee, gumbo, red beans and rice, and seafood platters.
Don’t miss out – go early to avoid the lines or make a reservation ahead! This one’s sure to fill up with hungry Houstonians quickly!
Here in Houston, we can never get enough of quality Asian cuisine, so we’re excited for the launch of Bimbimbox!
Inspired by the Korean bibimbap dash, Bimbimbox fuses Asian cuisine and bubble tea with a new spin. Choose your meat and veggie selections from the menu and watch your bowl be prepared in front of you!
You can also choose any of their tasty appetizers, like their Bibifries (fries topped with bulgogi or chicken and kimchi) or the chicken dumplings. Pair your dish with any of their delicious teas, milk teas, frappes, or smoothies!
