Rice Village

Rice Village has been a favorite shopping destination of Houstonians since it opened in the 1930s. It is half a mile west of Rice University.

Easily accessible, Rice Village is located inside Loop 610 and just south of US-59/Interstate 69.

The shopping area boasts fashion forward stores, charming boutiques with one-of-a-kind wares, excellent dining options and a strong showing from national brands such as Banana Republic, Express, Bath and Body Works, Mac, Chico’s and Victoria’s Secret.

The original cluster of shops and restaurants occupies around 10 city blocks bordered by University Boulevard, Kirby Drive, Rice Boulevard, and Morningside Drive. However, with the expansion of the retail area, Rice Village now covers a total of 16 city blocks. This includes northward extensions along Kirby and the mixed-used developments between Morningside and Greenbriar. Today, more than 300 establishments operate with Rice Village.

Luxurious apartments are also available in the area with the advantage of being within walking distance of shops, restaurants and fitness opportunities.
