I think what many may be looking for is The Conservatory at 1010 Prairie in the Market Square area. Haven't been yet..

My husband and I recently moved to Houston and wanted to get to know the area. A day spent in downtown Houston was a wonderful way to take in the culture. Houston Underground was a unique, fun and exciting area. We spent hours wandering through the Tunnels, exploring the shops, the food and watching all the busy people go about... More

Downtown Houston, as we wandered among its towering glass skyscrapers, did not feel very safe. Boarded up stores lined the streets, panhandling was a common sight and after office hours the deserted city took on a post-apocalyptic ambience. Not feeling as tough as Chuck Norris and desperately seeking a safe space, we parked our car and looked for the entrance... More

Interesting tunnel system under the Houston streets and buildings with many restaurants but little more. Was an interesting find in downtown Houston, but not the greatest of attractions.

I use to do my training in the chase building. It had stairs directly down to the tunnels. It's great. You can literally walk across downtown underground.

Literally took months to find this place! Even asked people who worked in the area about it...and was looked at like I was crazy! Finally found it inside of the Wells Fargo building! And it was so not worth it! A few unknown shops...a barbershop....and a couple of fast food places! But nothing you can't find anywhere else! Not worth... More

I'm not sure why two people say this doesn't exist because it does. It is a one a done kind of thing. I took my teenagers just to see and I would have to say the shops are expensive and not worth going to. It kind of reminds me of airport shopping. Got the kids a bite and a drink... More

I would like to know where this "Houston Underground" Is. I'm inclined to think it doesn't exist. In fact, there isn't anything underneath Greater Heights except water and oil. Nice job, TripAdvisor

Seriously. "Houston underground" somewhere under the heights? It doesn't exist. These idiot reviewers are pulling your leg. The only thing at all close to it is the downtown tunnel system, and it's dark, cramped, and filled with crappy shops that downtown workers would completely skip if they had time to go anywhere else on their lunch breaks. Oh, and it... More

Under downtown Houston there are approximately 7 miles of tunnels that link up a myriad of office buildings. These tunnels are a great way to beat the heat and experience a big city in a different way. The tunnels not only offer an alternative and safer way of traveling, but also offers various eateries and specialty shops. We saw many... More
