Verizon Center has its own parking garage located on 6th Street NW underneath the building and is only open for concerts at a charge of $27 for event parking. The garage is not open for public parking for Washington Wizards or Washington Capitals games, with the only exception being for persons with disabilities. The garage opens 1 ½ hours before game/show time and closes 1 hour after the conclusion of the game or event. Maximum clearance for the Verizon Center garage is 6’8″.
In instances where the Verizon Center garage is closed to the general public for events, there are several public parking garages near the building that would be viable options: Gallery Place parking garage on 6th Street NW; the public garage next door to Rosa Mexicano restaurant on F Street NW; and the public garage located near 7th and I Streets NW. There are at least 10,000 parking spaces located within several blocks of the arena.
*Please note: The parking lot located over at the old convention center site (marked by 9th, 11th, H Street and New York Ave NW), now known as CityCenterDC, will no longer be available for public parking for events and games starting on March 21, 2011. The general contractor for the CityCenterDC project has been given notice to proceed on the project.
