Parking on the metered street is open after 8pm but very limited. Otherwise you may need to park quite a ways away to avoid local parking restrictions. Give yourself time to find parking.
Melrose Umbrella Company across the street from Zephyr makes great cocktails. Go early to get street meter parking and have a drink.
Lots of free parking in the neighborhood if you just drive one block through the area with parking for residents only. We were there Saturday night.
Go to Melrose Umbrella Company across the street for drinks before or after. Great Asian food at PingTung Eat In Market too.
Vinotecque is right across the street. Great wines and a wonderful selection of plates. All delicious. Friendly, professional service.
Casual attire, theater is small, parking can be challenging
Low Hanging Fruit
I wore nice casual, but the audience ranged. Pretty much any dress is OK..
Discovered Vinoteque across the street for the first time after walking by so often! Sweet hidden courtyard. Definitely a great happy hour 5-7.
Avoid going down Fairfax--take La Brea instead--to avoid the bottleneck at The Grove.
Don't be late! If the play is sold out and there are any broken seats, you might get stuck on a card chair far from your friend/spouse/date!
Try Franco's about ten blocks east on the other side of the street. Great dining room with wonderful service!
You can easily get ticketed on side streets. Beware! Read the signs!
