The ideal and central address of 1900 Yorktown luxury apartments means you’re in the center of so many of Houston’s greatest things. Located in Houston’s Tanglewood neighborhood, these luxury apartments offer first-class in-home amenities (like built-in wine chillers and solid hardwood floors) and a resort-style pool to help create romantic days and nights, but if you’re itching to spend a night on the town, we’ve planned out 5 local options for you!

Date Night – Vietnamese Dinner and Lounge Vibes

Perhaps one of the best vibes in the Tanglewood area is Le Colonial, Houston’s famed Vietnamese restaurant. Located 2 miles away in the River Oaks Shopping District (ROSD), you’ll experience some raved-about dishes, crafty cocktails and an overall ambiance that can’t be beat. The entire place boasts impeccable beauty, but the lounge upstairs is the perfect place to spend a few hours with your significant other or loved ones and take it all in. Reservations are recommended, but if you put your name on the list, you can easily walk around ROSD and take in some shopping or a nearby cocktail while you wait. Did we mention the people watching and car-gazing is superb here?

Date Night – Grab Your Cowboy Boots

A Houston staple for nightlife entertainment is Wild West, located 2 miles down Richmond Ave. No matter your dancing experience, you’re guaranteed to have a great time while enjoying classic country hits and enjoyable people watching. Come for happy hour, sign up for dance classes or check out their event calendar to see what sounds fun. A few things to know before you go: Thursday nights are college nights (so plan accordingly if you like an older crowd), they are only open Wednesday – Sunday, there’s a dress code (it’s pretty relaxed) and there is usually a small cover charge (can range from $2 - $10). For specific questions, visit their website or give them a call.

Date Night – Movies

Located 2 quick miles away from our Galleria luxury apartments is IPIC Houston inside the River Oaks Shopping District. If you’ve never experienced IPIC in Houston or elsewhere, be prepared to have your socks blown off! One of the only theatres in the country to offer high-quality dining and specialty and signature cocktails (both at The Tuck Room before or after the movie and at your seats), you can experience a delicious meal and movie without having to leave the theatre. We won’t tell if you sneak in your own snacks, but you may want to check out their gourmet treats that will help make the night even more memorable. Get comfy after dinner in your oversized leather chairs and luxuriously cozy blanket and enjoy!

Date Night - Rooftop Movies

Get ready to experience one of Houston’s coolest new amenities, the Rooftop Cinema Club at BLVD Place. The Rooftop Cinema Club began in London in 2011 and has recently graced Uptown Houston with their bold and buzzy presence. Find a cool evening and grab a spot on the rooftop to make your very own movie memories. Help yourself to bottomless popcorn (and candy and pickles!) and get there early to enjoy games and drinks in the bar area before the show begins. Be warned though – this place books way in advance, so check out their calendar and grab your tickets NOW! Enjoy lots of nearby restaurants before or after the show to make an entire night of it.

Date Night - Staycation or Spa Day

We think our Tanglewood Houston apartments are the perfect place for a night in to enjoy wine and a movie, but a staycation or afternoon at the spa is always a welcome change. Check out the nearby Post Oak Hotel, just 1.5 miles from 1900 Yorktown. If you’re booking a romantic couples massage, book early and take advantage of the couple’s suite (which is a first-come, first-serve basis and doesn’t cost extra). Also, by booking a treatment, you’ll get access to the spa’s luxurious and one-of-a-kind amenities where you can make an entire day of it (be sure to call the hotel directly to see if they are running any local specials).
