Directions & Parking

Take the CTA Red Line train to Lawrence.
Walk 1 block south on Broadway Avenue.
The #81 Lawrence or #36 Broadway buses both stop within a block of the theater at the corner of Broadway & Lawrence.

Take either the Wilson Ave (south) or Lawrence Ave (north) exits from Lakeshore Drive and continue west one half mile. The theater is located on Broadway Ave between Wilson and Lawrence Avenues.

We recommend that you use public transit as it is the easiest and most convenient method for traveling to and from the Uptown Underground. If you MUST drive, parking lots are sometimes available on concert nights for parking for $20 on Lawrence Ave, Broadway Ave & Clifton Ave. Street parking is available for $2.00 per hour but is very limited. Residential parking is permit only – please don’t get towed!

Parking is particularly difficult on concert nights when the Aragon and Riviera are in full swing. The Uptown Underground currently cannot provide Valet Services because there is a shortage of lots in which to park cars. We highly recommend checking the concert schedules of the above venues to determine if parking is a viable option for your visit to our venue. Our best suggestion is to park further north or south on the Red Line and then take the train to the venue. It’s cheaper that way anyway!
