Parking Information

Where to park when visiting BAMSL...

There are a variety of parking garages, surface lots, and meters on the street near BAMSL’s 555 Washington headquarters. To view a map of all parking opportunities in downtown St. Louis, click HERE.

But, here are our personal recommendations. Washington Avenue, in front of our building, accessed from Broadway, has several meters you can park at for short visits. 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 (#61 on the map) at 6th and Lucas, and the St. Louis Centre East garage (#58) on the south side of 6th and Washington, plus parking at the Missouri Athletic Club’s (MAC) surface lot is also convenient.
