Six Montrose Businesses Keeping Things Cool
It’s no secret to anyone who’s been outside recently—the heat is on. Luckily, Montrose is perennially cool. Beat the heat, feed your inner hipster or just soak in the awesome vibes the neighborhood has to offer with these cool suggestions.
Cezanne Jazz Club / 4100 Montrose
Jazz was the original cool, and Cezanne is all about jazz. Open only on Fridays and Saturdays from 8:30 p.m. until midnight, the space above the Black Labrador Pub puts professional jazz musicians with serious pedigrees at center stage. Best for those whose focus is the music rather than bar chatter.
Snooze Eatery / 3217 Montrose Boulevard, #100
Breakfast doesn’t have to be an early morning or even weekend affair. At Snooze, you can eat your AM favorites at 1 PM on a Tuesday, and no one can stop you. This tiny act of workday rebellion means you can have your pancakes and eat them too—pretty cool if you think about it.
Kold Therapy / 515 Westheimer
What’s cooler than being cool? Cryotherapy. Because it’s downright cold. Need to combat muscle fatigue, swelling or sports injuries? Kold Therapy offers relief in just one, three-minute treatment. A brief stint in a sub-zero cryotherapy chamber promotes the release of chemicals naturally produced in the body that aid in recovery and repair. And if submerging your body into an Arctic environment doesn’t sound appealing, try a float session instead.
Bungalow Sno and Joe / 1219 Marconi
Montrose offers some of the best coffee options in the city, but Bungalow combines the joys of both hot coffee and cool, icy treats under one roof. The abode-turned-retail space also offers an assortment of curated gifts, so you can shop, sip and sit in one visit. How you combine these activities is up to you.
Advice for Eating, LLC / 1622 West Alabama
Getting healthy is a trend that’s never gone out of style; some might even say it’s the cool thing to do. When you need nutritional advice, a kitchen makeover or a full-on, life-changing plan, Montrose’s own Advice for Eating offers plenty of personalized nutritional advice and services to choose from.
Sound Exchange / 1846 Richmond
The friend that knows all the obscure music trivia questions and one-off albums from local bands shops for her records here. The neighborhood stalwart doesn’t sell major label records, so there’s always new, interesting and eclectic picks for hobbyists, enthusiasts and the underground-curious. Independent music is always cool.
