Is there parking at The Red Room@ Cafe 939?
Sadly, no. Since The Red Room @ Cafe 939 is located on one of Boston’s busiest streets, finding parking can be difficult. The good news is there are several parking garages nearby. If you are driving into the city for a show we strongly suggest that you plan ahead by looking up the Red Sox schedule. Fenway Park is right around the corner from us and street parking is very difficult on game days. An easy solution is to take the train or commuter rail into the city. Whatever you decide, do yourself a favor and plan ahead.

Accessible parking spaces are available at all of the garages/lots listed. Accessible street parking spaces do exist in the Back Bay but are extremely limited. At present, eight spaces exist near the theater and are designated by street signs that mark the area reserved for accessible parking.

This area is reserved for van ramp access.
