Houston has no shortage of food halls. In Downtown alone, there’s Post Houston’s market, Bravery Chef Hall, and Finn Hall, all offering a plethora of cuisines under one roof — an optimal choice for any person dining in a group with varying food preferences. And now, another food hub is headed for the city.

Lyric Market will open at 411 Smith Street in the Theater District this fall, boasting nine food stalls from chefs across the country, a full bar, and a 7,500-square-foot deck, according to a release.

Operated by the Hospitality HQ management group, the market is also slated to offer plenty of space, with a communal plaza, a street-side terrace, and a private event space for those looking to host more intimate gatherings. Nearby is also the technological Lyric Garage, which showcases works from Houston artists — including, most recently, Alex Arzu — through a large glass display box.
