4 Houston Apartments with On-Site Restaurants & Retail

Dine & Shop in Style Without Leaving Your Home When You Live at These Super-Luxe Rentals

Luxury apartments in Houston continue raising the bar when it comes to convenience and extraordinary amenities — and that’s especially true if you love to grab a bite out or get some retail therapy from time to time. 

In fact, some of the finest ultra-high-end rentals in Houston now offer on-site restaurants and retail shops, taking upscale living one step closer to the never-have-to-leave-home-to-get-it-all experience.

Here’s a look at some of these Houston luxury apartments and how they’re delivering more with their on-premises dining and shopping options.

1. One Park Place

Offering a world of opulence in Downtown Houston, the luxury high-rise apartments at One Park Place come with:

  • Two on-site restaurants: MKT BAR is a trendy beer and wine bar, with light plates and appetizers from around the world. You can also grab a fancy coffee or tasty gelato from MKT BAR at One Park Place. If you’re looking for more of a sit-down meal, head over to Brasserie du Parc, where you can order fine French cuisine and delightful craft cocktails.

  • An on-site grocery store: One Park Place residents have private access to “the world’s greatest pantry” via a ground-floor grocery store, Phoenicia Specialty Foods. In this 28,000 ft.2 space, you can pick up your day-to-day basics, as well as exciting international, imported foods. 

On top of that, the residents of One Park Place are just steps away from the culinary and retail delights of Downtown Houston, with hot spots like The Highlight (at Houston Center Shops and Restaurants) and Downtown’s Underground Tunnels (with Restaurants and Shops) just a minute’s walk away. 

2. The Rice

As an “icon reborn” in historic Downtown Houston, The Rice is another ultra-luxe high-rise apartment community with “modern amenity signatures” and “thoughtful services.” That includes several on-site eateries, like:

  1. Azuma: Get your sushi, udon, and teriyaki fix at this chic and super-hip Japanese restaurant at The Rice.

  2. Chipotle: Pick up a burrito, quesadilla, or other favorite Mexican meals when you’re on the go at Chipotle Mexican Grill on the street level of The Rice.

  3. Lawless Bar: Sit down for some fancy cocktails, delicious bites, and gorgeous Houston views at the swanky Lawless Spirits & Kitchen. Better yet, meet your colleagues here for standing happy hours every week, or plan your next big celebration at this glamorous restaurant, complete with an elegant outdoor terrace.

  4. Minuti Coffee: Whether you like a latte to go or a blended coffee to enjoy in a warm, welcoming coffee-shop atmosphere, you’ll find out why Minuti Coffee is “Houston’s coffee shop of choice” when you stop in.

  5. Sambuca: If you’re looking for live music, hearty American fare, and a fun atmosphere, have your next meal at Sambuca, “Houston’s only rockin’ restaurant.”

  6. Shay McElroy’s Irish Pub: Dip into this Irish watering hole for a Guinness, Irish whiskey, pizza, sandwiches, and other pub fare. As a great stop for both lunch and dinner, Shay McElroy’s Irish Pub can be an inviting spot for families and friends, as well as a cozy date!

With all that and so much more, it’s no wonder why the “who’s who” continue to enjoy the good life at The Rice.

3. SkyHouse River Oaks

As a newer glittering high-rise near the Houston Galleria and just south of Memorial Park, SkyHouse River Oaks lets you “live it up” with the finest amenities that deliver “higher style.”

That includes many of the bells and whistles that you’d find at other luxury rentals in Houston, like a rooftop resort-style pool, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and a full demonstration kitchen, complete with a rooftop dining area that has jaw-dropping views of the Houston skyline. 

On top of that, SkyHouse River Oaks also features a unique retail option that’s not widely found at other Houston high-rise apartments — a relaxation and beauty spa, Glow Spa & Nails. That can make it easy to get professional-grade nails, makeup, and lashes done any time or for any event, all without having to leave the comfort of home. 

While SkyHouse River Oaks doesn’t have any on-site restaurants (yet), get this — you can actually donate your extra food when you live at this ultra-high-end high-rise in Houston. 

Through a partnership with Move for America,  SkyHouse River Oaks makes it easy for residents to donate their extra food to those in need, including when they’re moving out. 

4. The Sterling

A unique treasure in the lively Regent Square district, The Sterling is where you can enjoy “a comprehensive lifestyle embodying the best of cosmopolitan living.” That means giving you the opportunity to experience unmatched amenities and “an elevated way of life,” including 55,000 ft.2 of on-site restaurants and shops, with: 

  • Fine dining: You’ll find a “luxurious mix of restaurants” at The Sterling, featuring “multiple concepts by James Beard Award-Winning Chef, Chris Shepherd.” That makes for an exciting fine dining experience unlike any other in Houston.

  • High-end shopping: Some of the most recognized brands in luxury have storefronts in or adjacent to The Sterling. Bordering a lush outdoor plaza, the retail shops at The Sterling also give you a front-row seat to regular farmers’ markets, outdoor film events, music festivals, and more, making The Sterling a happening place where you can live your best life.

  • Valet Parking: Never worry about parking or where you parked when you live at The Sterling. Simply drop your car off with the valet, and head out for food, shopping, and some of the best hot spots in Houston.

Along with all that, The Sterling also offers wellness programs, social events for residents, and other thoughtful experiences all “designed to endlessly inspire, exhilarate, and motivate.”
