5th Street Studios
1216 5th Street
Santa Monica, CA 90401

Where to park:

There are 8 public parking structures within 5 blocks of the studio, all of which offer free parking for the first 90 minutes.

  • Structures #1, 3, 5, 7, 9 — These are located on every block of 4th Street between Wilshire and Colorado.
  • Structures #2, 4, 8 — These are located on 2nd Street between Wilshire and Colorado.

DO NOT get sucked in by the lure of the metered spaces on 5th Street.  There is no need with so much free parking nearby.  However, should you wish to be a dumbass, please note that parking meters in Santa Monica are sensored.  So, once your time is up, you must vacate the space.  You can’t keep feeding the meters – they won’t let you add more time.  And if you try to pull out of the space and pull back in to reset the meter, you risk being fined $64 by one of Santa Monica’s 108,000 parking enforcement officers.
