Terrace 54

Celebrate the joy of nourishing food with a contemporary, new-American take on international cuisine.  Terrace 54 Bar + Table combines global flavors with culinary traditions found throughout the Southern region.  The seasonal menu showcases the freshest locally sourced produce from the area’s sustainable farmers and producers.


Terrace 54 Bar + Table is located inside The Westin Houston Medical Center luxury wellness hotel at 1709 Dryden Road between Main Street and Fannin Street, and is part of the historic Medical Towers’ redevelopment.


The jewel box fifth-floor space consists of 6,400 square feet of indoor and outdoor dining, including a stunning terrace overlooking the verdant tree canopy surrounding Rice University. Terrace seating offers relaxed alfresco dining or happy hours at the vibrant indoor-outdoor bar. The building’s original mid-century modernist design inspired Terrace 54’s ambience, featuring a balance of simplicity and sophistication with abundant natural light.

The mixologists at Terrace 54’s indoor/outdoor bar off a twist to handcrafted cocktails with farm fresh ingredients and creative interpretations on the classics.  Enjoy new and old-world wines available by the glass or bottle with an emphasis on wines from regional vineyards.


With floor-to-ceiling vistas and a stunning terrace overlooking the treetops of Rice University, Terrace 54 offers a new point of view on memorable meals and social hours.
