From what I've seen more times than I can count, they most definitely exist in Houston. The dress-up just isn't as extravagent here. The shacking up w/ roommates, baby Benzes/BMWs, discussions about inane/materialistic topics, and all the other materialism still applies.

Answering the OP, I like the homes in the Rice area. Those neighorhoods still look more suburban than 'urban' though.

See Washington Ave, Mid-Town, and parts of the Heights.

I'm a-let you in on a secret here - there's a bit of history regarding the OP and topics about the inner city. That's what a little of the "attitude" is about.

The real problem for Montrose is the hipsters encroaching upon it from Midtown and not the suburbanites. Don't let anyone tell you any different.

There is a lot of truth to this. They just built a massive apartment complex off of W. Dallas called CityVista. It looks like a crappy copy and paste building. It probably won't be long before some dress code club opens up a few blocks from it on W. Gray. I really liked that Midtown was revitalizing that area, but now it is encroaching more and more on Montrose. It probably won't be long until some moronic frat boy goes and gay bashes a straight guy that isn't dressed masculine enough.

Oh yeah, I apologize to the hipsters for singling them out. I meant to include yuppies in there as well. My bad.

jfre81--Thanks for the heads up about the OP...

Haha, I completely agree with what you both just said...those spikey haired kids and their pointy toed shoes can pay $12 for a drink at Blue Label or the Drake all they want, it's ALL theirs....

Then they can go back to their $1500 studio apt on Wash Ave and eat Ramen....

Well it's all Mostrose's fault for having good food. Get rid of the tastey bits and we'll all stop coming in!

Chain food is crap, if the suburbanites want to come in, let them jeeez. It's just more money in the bank. Only local regulars get the good tables anyway

well, turns out I might not be able to move after all...

but glad you feel like Montrose is such a great place for non-suburbanites... too bad most of the suburbanites have the money.
