There are a variety of parking garages, surface lots, and meters on the street near BAMSL’s Bar Center. But, here are our personal recommendations: Lucas Street, just behind our building, accessed from 6th Street, has several meters you can park at for short visits. There is a surface lot at 6th and Lucas, and the St. Louis Centre East garage on the south side of 6th and Washington, plus parking at the Missouri Athletic Club’s (MAC) surface lot is also convenient. Additional parking information and maps are available at parking.bamsl.org.
