A few blocks from Four Seasons Hotel Houston, the Market Square Historic District is Houston's original town center. Located just steps from Buffalo Bayou, where the Allen brothers established the city in 1836, Market Square has long served as the commercial and civic heart of Houston. Here the oldest bar in Houston, La Carafe, overlooks a redeveloped Market Square Park. Around the corner, a clutch of new bars like nationally recognized Pastry War, Bad News Bar and Okra Charity Bar have opened in century-old buildings. Young professionals and visitors alike congregate here after a long day's work or before a night at the theater.
