The Galleria, Houston

4.2
#1 of 464 in Nightlife in Texas
More than 30 million visitors each year seek the dynamic & fine shopping

environment uniquely offered by The Galleria, Texas' largest shopping

center and fourth largest domain nationally. International guests and

Houstonians blend seamlessly in the center while on shopping excursions or

entertaining guests at one of the signature eateries. Spanning 2.4

million square feet of space, housing 400 fine stores and restaurants, two

high-rise Westin hotels, and three office towers, The Galleria is

Houston's most popular retail and tourist destination, meeting every style

and taste. A plethora of amenities, including a full-size ice rink for

recreational and figure skating, a state of the art children's play area,

two swimming pools, three full-service national and international banks,

two tailor shops, more than seven beauty salons, and a post office,

continually serve a wide range of shopper delights. There are nine valet

parking stations and 13,000 parking spaces in seven garages to accommodate

drivers. Nestled between two of the city's most exclusive neighborhoods,

River Oaks and Memorial, The Galleria is as internationally respected for

its architectural style and imprint as its shopping panache. Modeled after

the revered Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in Milan, built in 1867, The

Galleria stands as one of the premiere examples of a dynamic, mixed-use,

urban environment. More than 7,000 business professionals in the adjoining

office towers, offering 1.1 million square feet of office space, reap the

benefit and convenience of having The Galleria just a short walk away. For

shopping, opportunities are endless at anchoring stores Neiman Marcus,

Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Macy's and at high-fashion favorites, such

as: Bottega Veneta, C√ČLINE, Chanel, Christian Louboutin, Fendi, Gucci,

Loro Piana, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Salvatore Ferragamo, Saint Laurent,

Tiffany & Co., Valentino and The Webster. Younger shoppers adore

fashion-forward collections found at Francesca's, H&M, Topshop, and the

casual must-haves from AG Jeans, Madewell and Urban Outfitters. Galleria

shoppers are assured all the latest trends for home and lifestyle from

b8ta, lululemon, Microsoft and Sephora, just a few of the fine retailers

that range from Apple to Zara. In addition to the abundant array of

shopping choices, The Galleria also has more than 60 dining options

ranging from fine dining at Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House, Fig &

Olive, NOBU and Yauatcha to casual favorites such as The Cheesecake

Factory, Chili's Grill & Bar, and Kona Grill. The Galleria is located at

the corner of Westheimer Rd and Post Oak Blvd in the heart of Uptown

Houston. For more information please call 713.622.0663.

  • I love the shopping at the Galleria. Parking is always a pain though. Construction in the area is a pain as well. The Galleria has everything you could possibly want.  more »
  • The Galleria is literally a one stop shopping centre for anything big, bold or beautiful that you are looking for. So many designers shops and some for the whole family (Such as the Disney Store). The...  more »

  • The stores are well kept. Employees realize that they will always be busy and provide great customer service. There is plenty to do here and security is great. There is an ice rink in the food court area which is always a great day to spend time with children. There is a rain forest cafe the service is amazing! My husband and I enjoy going to galleria to walk around and window shop.
  • Very nice mall! Some of the bathrooms could be a little cleaner. Lots of store options. You cam literally spend 2 days at this mall shopping at every store. Will definitely be coming back to shop! A must visit if visiting Houston area.
  • The stores are awesome and the atmosphere was pretty relaxing. The only downside that I experienced was the family lounge restroom by the Pay less store. You would think a great store you would expect a great and accommodating restroom but no it was not. Two single restroom and a long line of people waiting and sitting. The lounge area smelled horrible and the restroom was looking like how it smelled. To top it off the custodian was in the lounge on her phone the whole time not even attempting to clean. The restrooms at the movie theaters are way better than this one. Like a said great mall just this specific restroom area sucked.
  • Lots of nice shops in this mall. Actually I was surprised at the good mix of national, regional local retailers. We did some shopping at Macy's and Clark's. It was overall a much more pleasant experience than I expected. The parking garages were fairly easy to navigate too!
  • This is really an awesome mall, lots of stores and different restaurants around the area. Always good offers and during the week is never really busy which makes shopping easier and better. Some of my favorites stores are located here and also my favorite restaurant in houston poppas steakhouse is very close to here. Worth going specially during the weekend if you looking to get some shopping done, there is always discounts.
