Rock the Row at Hughes Landing


Place a to-go order from one of the nearby restaurants! Bring a blanket or lawn chair and relax near the stage for an up-close view of the talented performers! Many like to get up and dance during the concert, so be sure to come at least 30 minutes early to grab the perfect seat.

Patio at Del Frisco's Grille

Happy Hour at Del Frisco's Grille


Enjoy the music from the patios along Restaurant Row. All of the restaurants have great outdoor patio seating options and most have happy hour specials to enjoy during or just before the concert! Take advantage of their umbrellas or semi-covered outdoor areas that will keep you protected from the sun while you listen and dine! To help with the elements, most patios also have outdoor fans, and during the cooler months, many of the patios have heaters!


After dinner, treat yourself to something sweet at Hughes Landing. Grab a Macaron or Gelato from MACARON by Patisse. Each macaron is made with all-natural ingredients and has no added preservatives. Bonus, a majority of them are 100% gluten-free! The featured flavors change each day, but a few must-try flavors are the Fig & Goat Cheese, the Ferrero which is filled with hazelnut Nutella, and Lavender White Chocolate. For an extra cool treat, try their Gelato which is available by the scoop or pint. Perfect for children or to-go on your walk back to the concert is the Macaron Gelato Pop, which features layers of delicious macarons between the creamy gelato.

There are several art sculptures around the Hughes Landing area. Mexican artist Yvonne Domenge created a sculpture called Wind Waves which is a continuous loop of bright red bronze. It’s meant to represent the culture and outdoors of The Woodlands area and is located at the end of Aviator Way. Other notable art pieces are the Art Benches that call the immediate area home. Check our public art page to find out about each of the pieces in our growing collection.
