August may be just another month of summer to some, but to others, it’s football season! The Houston Texans will 10 home games at NRG Park this season (preseason included). With excellent hotels, events, and no need for parking, Avenida Houston is the perfect destination to make your next game, an experience. 

Getting to the game

Staying in Avenida Houston means that you don’t have to drive, pay to park, or deal with traffic. With easy access to the Green and Purple METRORail lines, you can ride to Main St., then take the Red Line directly to NRG Park. Each way is just $1.25. 

If light rail isn’t your thing, consider requesting an Uber or Lyft from your hotel, directly to the stadium.

Where to stay

Avenida Houston includes six high-quality hotels that offer walking distance to restaurants, light rail, and nightlife to enjoy after the game. Float the Texas-shaped lazy river at the Marriott Marquis, or enjoy the view from the Hilton Americas-Houston

The Hampton Inn and Homewood Suites combination property offers easy access to light rail stops, making it easy for you to get to the game. 

Where to dine

Whether you will be cheering on the Texans from the seats of NRG Stadium, or cheering from your seat behind a plate of food, Avenida Houston has you covered. 

Before the game, join other sport fanatics at Biggio’s Sports Bar. With a diverse food and beverage menu, large televisions and an atmosphere that screams of Houston pride, you’ll be game ready. If you’re heading to the game, Biggio’s is close to light rail stops, and offers a great kids menu. 

If you’re a classic Texan, Bud’s BBQ gives you the meats you love, smoked to your delight. Try any one of their menu items, as well as salads and more. For a quick grab, McAllister’s Deli will fill you up and get you out the door with delicious sandwiches, soups and their famous iced tea. 

After the game

Just because the game is over, doesn’t mean the night is. Reminisce on the game at Biggio’s, the Lobby Bar at the Hilton Americas-Houston, or Hearsay at the Green. Avenida Plaza restaurants like Pappadeaux and Grotto are open late, with patio dining and craft cocktails to enjoy.
