The Houston Watch Co. is located in the Main Street Market Square Historic District of Downtown Houston, Texas.   Our entrance is adjacent to the lobby of the Bayou Lofts on Franklin Street, between Travis and Main.  Look North towards the bayous for the large red rooftop neon sign.

We are a block from Market Square Park and the nightlife district in the 300 and 400 blocks of Travis and Main Streets.  Theater District venues, including Jones Hall, the Wortham Center, The Alley Theater and Bayou Place. are a short walk away. 

We are a pleasant walk from Minute Maid Park, the Toyota Center, BBVA Compass Field and Discovery Green.  There are B-Cycle stations along the way if you'd rather ride. 


Parking

Street parking is free after 6pm and on Sundays.  Before six, there are parking meters that accept credit cards. There is also a great app you can use (Parkmoblie) which you should have on your phone anyway. Seriously it will change your life. There are several pay lots nearby, including a large surface lot on Commerce Street next to Spaghetti Warehouse.

Dining

The Houston Watch Co. does not serve food, but there is no shortage of great restaurants in the neighborhood; downtown is a dining destination once again.  During happy hour, many folks order take-out from Morningside Thai, our neighbors on Franklin St.  We have their menu behind the bar.
