BBVA Compass Stadium, an AEG Facility, is a state-of-the-art, open-air stadium designed to host Houston Dynamo matches, Houston Dash matches, and Texas Southern University football games as well as additional professional, collegiate and community sporting events, concerts, exhibitions, conventions and special events. Opened on May 12, 2012, the 340,000-square foot, 22,000-seat stadium is the first soccer-specific stadium in Major League Soccer located in a city’s downtown district. With its downtown location, the new stadium is a part of a true ‘Stadium District,’ which includes Minute Maid Park and the Toyota Center, as well as the George R. Brown Convention Center, Discovery Green, Warehouse Live and House of Blues.
Nestled in a time-honored section of Downtown, you’ll find the Historic Market Square neighborhood, home of Houston’s original town center! With its 1800’s-era architecture, tree-lined streets, eclectic mix of sidewalk cafes, pubs and nighttime hotspots, plus amazing residential properties, Historic Market Square fuses culture and commerce.
History buffs may remember this part of town as the site of Houston’s original City Hall (until it moved to its current location in 1939), but today, Historic Market Square has grown into a robust urban neighborhood featuring a blend of old world charms and a modern-day lifestyle. In fact, taking a casual stroll on any given day will likely result in you sharing a carafe of wine with some of the area’s neighborhood residents at La Carafe – one of the city’s oldest bars in the city’s oldest commercial building and who’s celebrity roster includes artists and musicians such as Liberace and James Baldwin – to grabbing a coveted spot on the lawn at nearby Market Square Park, where friends and families have already begun gathering for a night of Blanket Bingo or an outdoor movie.
