Yuck... not a place in the loop I'd consider a "hot spot".

Why the disdain for UK? It's actually one of Houston's newly developed, trendier, not to mention more interesting neighborhoods.

Pretentious area, seems to be a better fit for Dallas than Houston. The 25 yr old women who live there in apartments with their roommates (but tell you they live in a loft in River Oaks) are starting to sport their Romney 2012 stickers on their 325i's and C250's.

I'm with you vegankris. I think this is where people from Midtown go to graduate. It's a nice area, but not my kinda nice.

Has there been a time when UK was not desirable? It's right next to River Oaks/Afton Oaks/West U. I figured it was the trendy place before "the heights, montrose, Washington ave, and then midtown". Now it's upper middle to high end. Once you get there you've been well past the "cool" phase. People expect it to be expensive and yuppyish now.

Well, I do like the farmers market there. ;-)

But otherwise, I agree with all the other statements said about UK. It's just not my cup of tea. That's the great thing about Houston though, it has something for everyone!

Why do people attack what they don't like as "pretentious" or "yuk". I think upper Kirby is not ment for broke people or people with families, or suburbanites, or people who ride bikes and eat granola. If you like run down areas that make you feel "urban" then go to montrose or midtown.

I thought House of Pies had always been a cool, trendy late night spot. Obviously, The Chron does not know what "cool" means.
