On the way there, I (the passenger) utilized GoldStar's recommendation by reserving parking ahead of time. We downloaded the ParkingPanda app and paid for a spot in a lot on Selma and Wilcox, for $10. 0.2 mile/less than 5 minutes walking from Second City. Got to the lot at 8:10PM on a Saturday night for a show at 8:30PM, with a few minutes to spare.

If you park in the lot behind the theatre off of Schrader, tell the attendant you’re going to The Second City and it’s $10 to park instead of $20.

If there's anything about Second City, it's that parking is always tough and expensive in Hollywood. We got lucky on the street, but other times I've paid $20-30, so get there early and hope for a spot on the street or just factor in parking to your cost.

It was a short walk from the Metro station at Hollywood & Highland. Just be prepared to see the various "Hollywood Blvd" characters. If you're squeamish, take a Lyft for door to door service.

Limited street parking (metered) on Hollywood Blvd. but there's plenty of parking available in the lots behind the theatre ($10).

The venue was a little on the chilly side (likely for the comfort of the high-energy crew) so wear a jacket or sweater if you're sensitive to cold temps. The theatre is upstairs and there's no elevator: not user-friendly for the elderly or those with physical disabilities/limitations.

Shop around for parking prices nearby before heading to the venue, since the lot directly behind the venue will cost you $15.

Urban Masala on Hollywood Blvd. is a block away and is a quick serve, eat in or take out for East Indian food. Delicious.

Dinner at Musso and Franks afterward for a classic Hollywood evening! They serve until 11! Best martinis in town!

Get there early because the starting times are real, and parking can cause delays. The first I tried lot wanted $20 so then I found a spot on the street, only to notice a sign that didn't allow Friday night parking, so I tried again at another lot and found a spot for $10. As I walked past the street parking, 2 cars were being towed.

The area is a little run down and unattractive. However, the gigantic shopping center at the corner of Hollywood and Highland is a wonderful oasis with many familiar restaurants from Hard Rock Cafe, to The Gill to Johnny Rockets... For more mundane palats there is a dreary humongous McDonalds just down the block. Youi can't miss it.

After parking is limited. As I'm not a fan of valet, I parked at Hollywood & Highland for $10 and walked the couple blocks to the theater

Parking is available in surrounding lots for $7-10. Look for lots just south of the Hollywood Blvd for the cheaper options. Once you move closer to Cahuenga, the price reaches double digits.

Parking lot on back street is $15, but it is worth it, since the show ends in about 1 hour you have plenty of time for food and drinks (ensure you have a designated driver) and take advantage of the convenient parking.
