Rice Village is a shopping district in Houston, Texas, United States.

Rice Village is a collection of shops, restaurants and pubs, situated about a half-mile west of the center of Rice University’s 300-acre (1.2┬ákm2) campus. The core “Rice Village” extends over 10 city blocks, defined by University Boulevard, Kirby Drive, Rice Boulevard, and Morningside Drive, though spillover has expanded the retail area to a total of 16 blocks, including northward extensions along Kirby and into the present mixed-use blocks between Morningside and Greenbriar.

Rice Village has been one of Houston’s oldest shopping destinations since the 1930s. It is an unplanned, high density hodge-podge of old and new retail stores.

The first minutes of the 1994 film The Chase were filmed in the Rice Village.
