By car: You can easily find us about 0.5 mile from the Rt 16 intersection at Mass Ave where Cambridge becomes Arlington. Across from Lake Street (off Rt 2) and the Capital Theater. Directly across from the great restaurant, Flora. 

Parking: 2 hour free parking right outside our door on either side of Mass Ave. No spaces? Try a right-hand turn onto Winter St. and park on the Right. Or take Winter to the end, a Right on Broadway and your 1st Right onto Cleveland St. Go near the Mass Ave end and park on the Right or Left. 

Secret spots! Across the street from DrumConnection is Cambridge Savings Bank and a parking lot. You can park there till 9:30PM. Easy. There are other side streets and more parking on the Quebrada Bakery, Capital Theater side of Mass Ave. More secret parking as we find it.

By MBTA: Take the Red Line to Alewife (the West end of the line). Walk the bike path to Thorndike Street and walk up Thorndike to Mass Ave. Take a Left onto Mass Ave and we are up on the Right about 4 blocks. Takes 13 minutes to walk and feels good!
Or grab a bus from Alewife or Harvard Square.
