Metro Train & Bus


We are in a partially residential neighborhood, so street parking is available. Please read all signs to avoid getting ticketed or towed.

We know DC parking signs can look like a totem pole of contradictions, especially when you’re trying to read them as you drive by, so here are the most common signs you’ll see around the shop:

Green is good! No permit needed. Two hour parking Monday through Friday, no limit on Saturday & Sunday.

Even when parking under a green sign, look out for scheduled street sweeping signs.

“Resident permit parking only” applies Monday through Friday, but you can park without a permit on Saturday & Sunday.
