In its short time open, POST Houston has become a must-see destination in the city. The old Barbara Jordan post office building, renovated and reopened in 2021, now offers a diverse range of cuisines, events, a concert hall, and a stunning view of Houston’s downtown skyline. Let’s get into it!

Bring Your Stretchy Pants

POST Houston’s food court is not your typical mall food court. You’ll find a range of cuisines that represent the diversity of Houston so well, it’ll take you multiple trips to taste it all. Stop by ChòpnBlọk, a West African restaurant that has gained national recognition. Grab a bite at East Side King, which offers globally influenced Japanese street food and is run by award-winning chef Paul Qui. I’m always savoring the empanadas at Taco Fuego. When all is said and done, grab dessert at Lucy Pearl’s and you won't be disappointed.

The Skyline View

You can’t make a trip to POST without going up to the roof to look at the skyline. This five-acre roof isn’t just a place for a nice selfie, but also where you can relax and enjoy a range of events. Grab a beer or cocktail at their mobile bar on the weekends. Jam to their live DJ or buy tickets for a concert series. Check out their free yoga and zumba classes offered monthly. You can also schedule a tour of their one-acre urban food farm.

The Music Hall

This summer, it’s time to buy tickets for a show at 713 Music Hall! I went for the first time in May and absolutely loved the venue. Inside, the venue is a lot larger than it looks from the outside and can hold up to 5,000 people. Some upcoming shows include: Yellowcard, Young The Giant, K-Pop We Stand, and Brent Faiyaz.

So, what’s your favorite part of POST Houston?
