General Public Parking

  • We are not responsible for your vehicle while you're here but we strongly recommend parking in the Emory University Hospital Midtown Parking Deck, located directly across the street from the front doors of The Shakespeare Tavern® on Peachtree Street. To get to Peachtree Street/the Tavern, exit the parking deck on level D. Parking price should be $5. (Not valid for valet parking)!
  • DO NOT park on Pine Street or in the empty parking lots on Pine Street. Your car might be booted if you park in these lots.
  • DO NOT park at the meters in front of our building. As of Spring 2010 the city/Park Atlanta is enforcing that the meters be paid. Our front doors lock 30 minutes after the show starts, which makes coming and going to feed the meter difficult.
  • Our accessible parking/entrance is at the back of our theater, off of Renaissance Parkway. Once you turn onto Renaissance Parkway from Peachtree Street, you will turn right onto Courtland Street. The Tavern’s back entrance will be immediately on your right once you clear the building on the corner and the traffic bumps. It is a tricky turn, so drive slowly. Handicapped parking is in front of the ramp behind our building.

    To make it a bit easier to find our Handicapped Parking Spaces, here is what it looks like behind our building:
