Memorial Park/Washington Corridor

 A glittering, fresh-faced crowd swarms this eclectic mix of luxurious lounges, honky tonks, wine bars and some of the most-loved restaurants in the city. The strip, which stretches east from Memorial Park to Downtown, recently experienced a resurgence, as dilapidated properties were torn down and replaced with townhouses, mixed-use developments and high-energy hot spots. After the sun goes down, catch a seat on The Wave—Houston’s first ‘jitney’ shuttle in more than 15 years. The taxi-bus concept enables riders to enjoy a fixed-route, fixed-rate shuttle within the Washington Avenue District, Midtown and the Heights.
