We are located just outside of Downtown Berkeley, so the parking situation here is a little tricky, but not impossible. Some options:
The neighborhoods around the studio are almost all 2 hour parking spots from 8am - 7pm Monday - Friday, so you can park, set yourself an alarm, and then move your car every couple hours. (It's a good way to make yourself get a little exercise and fresh air!). For parking on Saturdays, the neighborhood south of University Ave. is free all day. On Sunday, parking everywhere is free.
The streets to the west of Sacramento Ave. and south of University Ave. are unmetered, neighborhood parking. That's about a 10-15 minute walk away.
The meters out front on University Ave. are one hour for $1.50. You can leave your car there and pay every hour. The city recently installed an app that lets you pay from your phone, so you don't have to leave the studio every hour, but you do have to pay attention to your phone. If you want to be prepared, you can download the app here. They are free on Sundays.
There are garages in Downtown Berkeley. Those are a 10-15 minute walk away. You can find out more information about what's available here.
Public transportation is always an option! We are almost exactly halfway between the Downtown Berkeley and North Berkeley BART stations. It's a 10-15 minute walk or 5 minute Uber/Lyft from either station to the studio.
To unload your supplies and equipment, there is often parking right out front, at a meter or in the yellow zone. We're happy to help you unload, just come in and ask!
We'll look forward to seeing you soon at the studio!
