Parking can be difficult around the Mercury, as it is in most popular neighborhoods. Please allow extra time when arriving be car, and consider public transportation. Pay lots and Valet are always the recommended option Lot Parking is available at Blaine School, ½ block north of the theater for $10 (credit card or exact change). The lot can fill up fast on the weekends, so plan to arrive early. Patrons should remove their cars by 2am. Valet Parking is provided at the entrance to the theater for a fee of $12. Please be patient when receiving your vehicle at the end of the evening, as the attendants may have to park your car in a remote lot. Valet ends after the last show of the day. If you would like to stay in the neighborhood longer, see the attendant for your keys and you can pick your car up from the lot. Street Parking near the Mercury is very limited. Southport is a metered parking street. Meters run from 9am - 9pm Monday through Saturday and 10am - 8pm on Sunday. Metered spots fill up fast. The meters are actually pay boxes that do accept credit cards, and allow you to pay for up to 3 hours at a time. Residential streets are available for parking before 6pm (after 6pm most streets are permit parking only). Free street parking is available on and west of Ashland Ave (three blocks west of the theater) and north of Irving Park Road. Some of these streets have special parking limitations during Cubs night games starting at 5pm. There are many loading zones and no parking zones on all Chicago streets. Please pay close attention to posted signs, and any temporary signs that may be attached to signposts or trees.
