Luxury Shopping at the River Oaks District

Though the Arabella may not yet be fully realized, it has urged Houston into a more design oriented direction. Positioned in the star studded River Oaks District, it is a work of modern art and thoughtful architecture very close to high end luxury shopping. You also don’t want to miss decadent restaurants, the exclusive iPic movie theatre, and more. Let’s explore the Arabella’s backyard: the River Oaks District!

This Isn’t Your Average Movie Theatre

First off, the iPic movie theatre brings a whole new layer to your movie going experience. You avoid crowds with intimate, small theatre sizes. You can also watch movies in comfort with reclining seats, pillows, blankets, and top of the line service from your personal server. With a bar featuring boutique eats and signature cocktails, you’ll be converted instantly. Also: each ticket comes with complimentary popcorn!

Treat Yourself

Walking along the contemporary sidewalks of the River Oaks District, you’ll recognize some very notable high end brands. New stores are added all the time, but you can visit Cartier, Dior, Harry Winston, Hermes, Tom Ford, and many others now. You’ll be steps away from exclusive shopping even Galleria patrons can’t enjoy – which leads us to our next destination: food!

Whether you’re in the mood for a post Yoga snack, an authentic and juicy Texas burger, or fine dining options, the River Oaks District delivers! Sample Hopdoddy Burger Bar for all your burger needs. Visit Toulouse Cafe and Bar to evoke all of your Parisian sensibilities. You can even enjoy the Tuck Bar for a 1920’s speakeasy atmosphere. Hint: it’s the bar and restaurant located inside the iPic movie theatre!

So Much More Than Shopping

Many locals Houstonians still don’t know that the River Oaks District hosts exclusive events.  The location hosted the Modern Luxury Issue Release party on November 10th and Jo Malone’s Holiday party on November 18th and 19th. Of course, there are also fun details like the complimentary carriage rides throughout November and December. The Arabella allows for living life in modern design and immersive luxury thanks to the exciting and adjacent River Oaks District!
