KPRC takes a trip into the Houston underground

HOUSTON – Take a tour of Houston's downtown underground tunnel system with Jake Reiner!

The underground tunnels started out years ago as a connection between two downtown movie theaters, and today it's a way of life for some folks.

"I get lunch down here Monday-Friday probably since 1993," said Arnissa Bennett, who works near the tunnels.

Explore the tunnels that connect roughly 95 city blocks (6 miles long), dozens of businesses all located 20 feet underground!

"I've had this shop for almost 17 years," said Melba Diaz, who owns La Dolce Vita, a restaurant in the tunnels.

There are businesses, multiple food courts and a bustling underground working community. Meet the people who come to work here every day and the hard-working Houstonians who walk the tunnels daily.

"Working for Supercuts, you know downtown in the tunnel, it's a lot of fun, it's a great atmosphere," said Jane Guessfeld, who works at Supercuts. "They need to give a try because it's a very unique experience, you know with business people eating lunch, working down here it's an entirely different world."
