The Atlas Performing Arts Center is relatively new to me, but I've enjoyed every event I've been to there. The adaptation of a classic movie theater for use as a center with several venues makes The Atlas an interesting and fun place worth a visit on its own.

Off street parking is available in the neighborhood a short 2-3 blocks away from the Atlas Theater.

I walk from Union Station or NoMa metro, so no idea about parking, but many restaurants in the area with happy hour specials. Authentic German Biergarten a few doors east of theater, with great beer (i.e. NOT Bud Lite). Also a great, albeit expensive, pie place (Dangerously Delicious) a few doors down, as well. Enjoy!

Try to sit in the front row. The actors use scaffolding that runs behind the seats so you'll have to turn around at points and if you sit too far back, it can be hard to see when they go behind you and your neck will get tired.

Take a long sleeve shirt. The "underground" is very cold. No seriously. You will need a long sleeve shirt.
