Driving Directions:
From 90/94, take the North Ave exit east a few miles to Wells St (200 Block) and make a left on Wells.

From Lake Shore Drive, take the North Ave/LaSalle exit. Follow LaSalle around until you hit North Ave. Make a right on North, then make a right on Wells.

Parking is available across Wells St in the Treasure Island parking lot or around the corner on North Ave in the Piper’s Alley Self Park garage. Treasure Island is a flat rate (currently $10) and they open their lot to Second City patrons at 5pm. Piper’s Alley charges an hourly rate, so the cost depends on when you parked; it typically runs $15-20. We do validate for $1.00 off the Piper’s Alley lot--bring your parking ticket to the box office to have it validated.
