#CoolDowntown #CoolDowntown #CoolDowntown #CoolDowntown #CoolDowntown

coolYou do.

We’ll be asking you to shout out about our #CoolDowntown through May via Facebook posts and other social media, videos, photos, songs, selfies…be creative!

The ones we like the best will win #CoolDowntown stuff like coffee drinks at Bon Temps Coffee Bar or movie passes and meal at Robinson Film Center.
(Yes, those two places help make us cool.)


No matter where you look downtown, you can see cool: art, buildings, businesses, history, spaces, skylines, events, places, people and things we aren’t even thinking about right now.

hughes_howard-later_010907_thumbWe were Nashville before Nashville, Houston before Houston. Howard Hughes hung out here. So did Elvis. From spaces like the Municipal Auditorium to the great muffalettas and heavenly sweet tea at Fertitta’s Deli, to a whole lotta’ shakin’ going on Elvis_Presley_promoting_Jailhouse_Rock…our people, places, events, and activities are unique, and pretty darned skippy.

We know downtown is cool, you know downtown is cool, now it’s time to tell the world!


cooldowntown-campaign-purple-grid-300x217Between now and the end of May, we want to hear what you think sets us apart, makes us special, makes you smile. We have SO MUCH going on right now and we want you to help us share it. Post on your page on ours, but be sure to add the #CoolDowntown so we will see it.


What takes you to a happy place? Historic buildings? A neat business? A person? A special place? A favorite event? A beautiful venue? Tasty food? Fun art? Old signage? Downtown’s vibe? Our stories past? Plans for the future? There’s no wrong answer, but there are a bunch of right ones. We’ll use many of your responses in material promoting our #CoolDowntown.

We’re standing by, ready to hear from you!
