Parking & Directions

We are located at 156 Highland Ave (see below for our mailing address), on the corner of Central Street and Highland Ave, at the top of Spring Hill. Use the map above to find your way to us.

Parking is tough in Somerville.

There is a parking lot across from the building, on Highland Ave, and there is limited on street parking on Highland Ave and Central St. Please pay careful attention to the signs to ensure you won’t be ticketed!

We recommend taking the bus (Bus# 88 and 90 drop off directly in front of the venue) or the T (20-25 minute walk from Porter or Davis Square) or using a rideshare or taxi service.

There are handicapped parking spots both in the lot across the street and the lot behind the building. For accessibility there is a ramp in the back of the building, off of Central St. If you require access please contact us at so we can be best prepared to help you.

Thanks for coming to see us at ONCE
