Pop-up shops seem to be everywhere in Houston in recent years. These temporary installations do everything from showcasing local vendors to showcasing out-of-town businesses. You may have noticed more pop-ups in recent years as the trend for these temporary shops continues to increase. Everything from food to clothing to art can be explored in the pop-up world. Here are some of the upcoming stores in Houston that are sure to “poppin”.


Miracle is a Christmas-themed pop-up that arrives in Houston later this month and stays until December. With locations around the world, this cocktail bar serves a variety of vacation-themed cocktails in a lively environment. Its interiors are adorned with frosted glass, decorated mini holiday scenes, ornaments hanging from the ceiling, and string lights throughout; the result is a cozy corner that arrives just in time to unwind before the finals.

Yo! Hip hop

Yo! Hip hop Pop-up shops are a variety of vendors that meet every third Saturday of the month. With an optional dress code of 80s and 90s clothing and a wide range of vendors, this pop-up has a range of local clothing, beauty products, jewelry, and food vendors, a one stop shop for everything you might need. Yo! Hip Hop is run by a barber shop, which means you can get your hair cut while shopping as well. Entrance is free and there are goody bags for the first 40 guests to come out.


Fantasy is a pop-up dance performance in Houston that commemorates the closure of Fantasma, the corresponding artistic pop-up. This dance performance is based on poetic lyrics from the art installation, and the performance is presented in three different “moments”: The Fall, Lament and The Awakening. With the show not only inspired by art, but also incorporating lyrical singing and visual arts, the free dance performance lasting around 35 minutes is sure to provide a plethora of multicultural entertainment.
