Parking

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 means go! No permit needed. Two hour parking Monday through Friday, and park as long as you want on Saturday & Sunday.

 

Even when parking under a green sign, look out for scheduled street sweeping that requires that side of the street be clear of parked cars for a couple hours every week, for 8 months out of the year.

 

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