Midtown

Very Popular Spot for Young Professionals
Midtown is a jam-packed area that hosts a lot young professionals looking to enjoy the city's best nightlife options. You can find the city's unofficial restaurant row here that includes popular spots like Piola, Brenna's of Houston, and Charivari. Don't let the young crowd and popular nightlife spots fool you however - it's still one of Houston's most desirable neighborhoods no matter what age you are as it offers something for everyone.

Renters here thrive on living in a vibrant, exciting neighborhood and you can really feel the energy when you walk the streets. It provides easy access to downtown and most of Houston freeways are within a five minute drive so commuting shouldn't be an issue.

Midtown — 8.5/10 Rating (based on 15 neighborhood reviews)
Being in Midtown was really great before Covid. I would definitely recommend living in Midtown if classes are in person since you are only a 5 min drive to campus and the bars are close by, making it a little easier to have a social life in law school. However, living in Midtown mid-pandemic is very different and the conveniences of being close to school are no longer relevant. I do like that it is a young neighborhood where most people are young professionals.

Camden McGowen Station
Well located in Houston but noisy and not as safe as I would want. There are a lot of homeless around the area. Midtown park has a good dog park and it is a nice park. Several gyms, restaurants, and bar options around.

Post Midtown Square
On the edge of midtown so great access to restaurants and main streets without the noise of the bars in the center of midtown. Also brand new Whole Foods across the street. The people who use street parking, though, make getting out onto the big street a little annoying.

The area is really cleaning up. You are right down the street from HEB, Whole Foods, and Randalls. There are so many social spots in this area. This is the cheapest safest apartment in the area right now.
