Friendly, welcoming staff—open doors to performance spot 1/2 hr. before play starts.
Hollywood Blvd. reminds me of Las Vegas—pretty yucky. We just had slice of pizza @ near by joint, but check Yelp and Open Table for recommended spots.
We parked on side street and only had to out $ in meter TIL 8 pm
I wore Leggings & a top with sneakers. Husband male version of same..
There is a parking lot behind the theatre space, and if you let them know you are there for Second City the cost is $10 rather than $20.
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.

Went to Masala place next door after the show-generous portions-abut bland but tasty.

Right across the street is Te'kila and its happy hour is till 8pm 7 nights a week. Get a drink before any performance and it will be even better!!!
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.
For the 9 PM show, found metered parking on side street until 11 PM. and on the street south of Hollywood Blvd. near the YMCA, metered parking until 8 PM. ...
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.
