A walkable, historic haven tucked in the true heart of Houston—between the oak-lined avenues of the city's finest residences, its medical district, and the leafy reaches of Rice University—the Village has remained an iconic landscape for shopping, dining, and discovery for generations.
Our Response to COVID-19
Things have changed. Our commitment to our community hasn’t. We continue to follow CDC and city guidelines and maintain a safe and healthy environment. We’re also truly grateful for the support shown for our healthcare workers. Through Fare for Care, we collectively donated 15,000 meals to local hospitals—and helped Houston restaurants along the way.
What stores and restaurants are open?
How is COVID-19 affecting store hours?
Whose guidelines does Rice Village follow to ensure a safe environment?
Based on recommendations from the CDC, the City of Houston Health Department, and the Texas Department of State and Health Services, we work with our cleaning and maintenance staff to continuously improve our program.
What is Rice Village doing to comply with health recommendations?
We’re taking additional measures to keep our stores, restaurants, and grounds clean for all who work in and visit our Village. Here’s how we’ve adjusted to address safety guidelines:
- Cleaning surfaces with virucides designed to deactivate and destroy viruses
- Increasing the frequency of cleanings of elevator doors and buttons, escalator railings, benches and chair armrests in public areas, and door knobs to service corridors and common areas
- Providing alcohol-based hand sanitizers in public restrooms
- Instructing our staff and employees to remain home if sick
How can we support our local restaurants and shops?
First and third Sundays
We’re opening our Village up to all our community has to offer and welcoming Houston’s farmers, chefs, and makers to our outdoor market. Grab a fresh coffee from a barista before strolling through tents filled with small batch chocolate, salted margaritas, savory chef-made plates, locally grown produce, and more.
