Since 1938, Rice Village has grown in acreage and appeal by way of barber and deli shops, mom-and-pops and variety stores. Evolving over the years, Rice Village has gathered much loved eateries, design boutiques, and innovative brands into its fold. Still today, the magic is in the mix of shops and architecture reflecting the quality of a place touched by generations of Texans.

 Now as storefront facades turn over a new leaf for spring, the Village welcomes rodeo-goers to moments of both repose and revelry. It’s easy to find a quiet, green corner of the Village or partake in the festivities: listen to live music in Morningside Plaza. Gather fresh ingredients for backyard barbecues at the Sunday farmers market. Peruse a wealth of western brands like Tecovas and King Ranch, then depart from the well-tread path to explore the Village grounds. Our array of pop-up shops invite all to linger over unexpected finds, while ongoing landscaping reflects an ever-growing space in which community and commerce bloom.

For those craving more, Village eateries and events bring full flavor to the table. Beyond the many options celebrating Houston’s cultures and cuisines, Hopdoddy and Yo Yo’s Hotdog satisfy meat-forward appetites, while Sixty Vines and Sweetgreen offer lighter, tasteful options. It’s this mix of moments—stepping into the perfect boots, strolling to your favorite restaurant, and rounding up a new round for friends—that makes for memorable days. Those in which good cheer and homegrown pride is found right in the heart of Houston.

Welcome to Rice Village.

Join us in celebrating our shared western roots during our Rice Village Rodeo Roundup event on March 4th. Alongside a mechanical bull and freshly poured cocktails, we’ll have plenty of handmade cowboy hats, boots, and other outdoor gear fit for all Village visitors.
