If you get there at 6:00, there is street parking (parking meter) which is a lot more reasonable than the parking lots.

or, add your own... If you arrive within 2 hours of 8:00 p.m. and are lucky enough to get an available parking space on the street at a meter it will cost you $2.00 ($1.00) per hour) which is very reasonable compared to parking lot expense.

If you are lucky, you may be able to park at the parking meters across the street. Free after 8pm, $0.25 each 15 minutes

The Geffen has a beautiful courtyard in it's historic 1929 building so I recommend getting there a little early to enjoy it.

I'm always able to find street parking towards Hilgard and pay about 50 cents as the meters stop being valid after 8 p.m. so for a weeknight show you can get parking for 25-50 cents.

parking right next door is ideal and reasonable $7 for our night at the Geffen. pay parking machines on the "A" lobby levelwere temperamental and the attendant helped a lot. Two cars had trouble using their ticket to open the gates out of the parking lot.. but finally all of us got out.

I expected parking to be an issue, it is Westwood after all, but there was a lot right next door and the fee was reasonable at $7.00.

We lucked out and got the only handicapped parking right in front of the theater. The parking garage has handicapped parking but one needs to take an elevator and walk around the block to get to the theater.

Napa Valley Grille has a happy hour where dining before the theatre can be a short walk away, fun and not too expensive.

They have a very nice staff and a great coffee bar with snacks, and a patio for lounging before the curtain. Very comfortable.

Parking at the Geffen will mean a walk about five minutes away from the theater.

There is a parking lot next to the theater, but the signage is not clear, and it is easy to miss if you go too far.

If you park in the Palazzo parking structure, be sure to pick up a validation pass from the box office staff or concierge as you enter the Geffen Theater. I forgot to do this & it wd have cost us $20 since we arrived before 6:00 pm. The parking attendant was kind enough to give us the $4 rate as the Geffen box office was already closed after the show. He said Geffen patrons get the $4 rate even if they park all day as long as they have the validation pass, so don't forget!!!

I recommend the Palomino in Westwood Village for dinner. Great food and possibly the best service in town. And my husband and I are picky!
