Parking for Auditorium Theatre, unless you are running late (like I was) try and park anywhere except across the street. It was $30, no discount for going to a show. Less than a block away or on the other side of the lot it was $12.
Options galore. Went to my favorite, the Gage. Just a couple blocks north on Michigan Ave.
Use parkwiz and you'll find decently priced fees. We used the Grantpark South garage.
The weather was Cold and rainey. I wore Casual winter wear. The theater was quite warm..
Use Spothero.com to find parking very close to the theatre at a reduced rate. No waiting for the valet to bring your car. Just get in and go! And not have the hassle of finding a place to park.
Very important if you use the lots listed on the Auditorium Theater's website: you must get the parking coupon FIRST, before you park, or else you can't get the discounted rate. Opt to purchase it online if you can't get to the theater beforehand.
The weather was Rainy. I wore a dress and warm jacket. .
Seats are SUPER small so expect to be really tight. The venue is also very warm. There is a $4 coat check and one single elevator that will take you to the higher floors but it takes awhile.
I always use Spot Hero when i go downtown. I paid 13$ for 9 1/2 hours at 401 s Wabash, a minute stroll away from The Auditorium Theater.
We parked in the lot directly across the street from the Auditorium Theatre. I was shocked that the lot was not full so close to showtime.
Get coupon on line for Loop Auto Parks at 524 S. Wabash. Parking is $16 compared to $21 underground. 1 block from theater.
Pazza is very close by with delicious, reasonably priced food and comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. We made a reservation, but it wasn't overly crowded. Highly recommended.
Used parkwhiz, parked less than a block away for a decent price.
The weather was beautiful and sunny. I wore a sweater and a pair of jeans.
The weather was pleasent but chilly. . I wore I was dressy casual..
Go to Greek Islands in the West Loop before the show. They have free valet and great food.
We parked on Wabash 2 blks. N of Congress and had a very good Italian dinner at Pazzo just N of there.
