Higher Fire is surrounded by plentiful street parking and is adjacent to several city parking lots. We encourage you to walk, bike, or take public transit to our studio if possible. But for those driving, here are some easy options for parking near our studio and gallery.

  • NEW! Free Day-Time, Off-Street Parking
    Higher Fire provides daytime parking for our students & members in the parking lot behind Tate Family Auto, located at 477 S Market Street. The entrance to the lot is on Balbach Street, between Tate Family Auto and condominiums across from the South Hall of the Convention Center. Students and members may park there from 9am - 6pm, Monday thru Saturday. A placard for your dashboard is required -- see studio for details.
  • Metered Parking
    Plenty of metered street parking is available on South 1st and Market Streets around the studio. Metered spaces allow for up to 3-hours of parking between 9am-6pm on weekdays and Saturdays. Weeknights after 6pm, spaces are free. (Parking on William Street is for residents only.)
  • Non-Metered Parking on Reed or Balbach Streets
    Plenty of non-metered street parking with no time limit is available on Reed Street, east of Market. 2-Hour parking on Balbach Street is non-metered, but the 2-hour time limit is enforced.
  • South First Area (SoFA) lot
    Located under Interstate 280 at South First Street. The SoFA lot offers FREE parking weeknights after 6 p.m. and all day Saturday, Sunday and holidays. Flat rate all-day parking Monday-Friday is available for $5. This lot is just a 2-minute walk to our front door.
