Higher Fire is surrounded by plentiful street parking and is adjacent to several city parking lots. We encourage you to walk, bike, or take public transit to our studio, if possible. But for those driving, here are some easy options for parking near our studio and gallery. Note: Please do not park in the lot next to our space – it belongs to our neighbors.
