4th Annual Night at Market Square in Downtown Houston

The Houston Downtown Management District (Downtown District) will host its 4th annual Night at Market Square this weekend, October 13th, from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. providing the opportunity to sample beverages and bites from the area’s diverse and eclectic restaurant and bar scene, and enjoy the sounds of one-man funk band Henry + the Invisibles and featuring New Orleans’ Royal Teeth at the heart of the Historic District - Market Square Park.

Located at 214 Travis, just a half block away from the park, the Heritage Texas Properties Downtown office will be holding an Open House for those interested in learning more about living Downtown. They will also be offering people free bottled water, refreshments, and downtown information including maps and restaurant/things to do downtown guides.  

Downtown visitors can also get up-close-and-personal with the Glo N Go Illuminated Art Car Procession; and even do a little shopping at Urban Izzy’s Mobile Boutique.  Furry friends can also join in the fun with Barnaby’s Paw Parade and Costume Contest. Other area businesses participating include Hearsay, Niko Niko’s, Georgia’s Market, CharBar, Warren’s, La Carafe, Spaghetti Warehouse, Macondo Latin Bistro, Notsuoh, Dean’s Credit Clothing, Market Square Bar & Grill, Mia Bella, Frank’s Pizza and Hotel Icon’s Line & Lariat.

The park, located at 301 Milam, framed by Preston, Congress, Milam and Travis Streets, reopened in August 2010, after extensive remodeling, and has been a hub of activity ever since. Lauren Griffith Associates and Ray + Hollington Architects redesigned the park to reflect the changing character of the area.

Guided by community input and following a $3 million face lift, the park features a crescent-shaped dog run, the aforementioned Niko Niko's restaurant with outdoor plaza, lots of much-needed greenspace, seasonal plantings and flowers, great art installations, and Lauren's Garden, a memorial garden named for Houston native, Lauren Catuzzi Grandcolas, who was a passenger on United Flight 93 on Sept. 11, 2001. (This part of the park was formally dedicated on the anniversary date of the 9/11 attacks as a tribute to all those killed that day.)

Houston Downtown Management District supervised the design and project management and will operate and maintain the park, in coordination with the City of Houston Parks and Recreation Department.  

The 30-foot-tall steel and wood sculpture Points of View by James Surls returned to its home in Market Square Park after undergoing conservation and restoration treatments. Originally created for the center of the park in 1991, Points of View now stands above a gentle water feature on the Travis Street side of the park.

The artwork in Market Square Park is a collaboration of artists – Richard Turner, Paul Hester, James Surls and Malou Flato – who played a role in the park’s redesign, along with newcomer Ketria Scott. Artwork in the park is managed by the Houston Arts Alliance, the organization that manages and maintains the City of Houston’s 400+ piece art collection.
