Hard to believe this photo was taken in #DowntownHouston. POST Houston's Interior was inspired by the neon of night markets & Houston's Day for Night festival (once held in the building), but also highlights the industrial nature of this gigantic structure. If you could describe POST Houston in one word, what would it be?

Our most treasured #DowntownHouston park space got an upgrade and is officially open ๐Ÿ˜

After numerous events being canceled or delayed due to a water-logged lawn over the years, we decided to make a big change. The new turf & surrounding brick sidewalks (goodbye mud & sand!!) means we can host events on the same night of a morning downpour, our Downtown District Operations can maintain with ease and our community now has a beautiful landscape year-round.

We're ready for a jam-packed events season at Historic Market Square Houston, are you?!
