So.....you are coming to Collaboraction?!
Great call. We are excited to welcome you to our home and share our work with you!
Collaboraction is located on the 3rd floor of the historic Flat Iron Arts Building at 1579 N. Milwaukee on the "six corners" intersection of Milwaukee, North and Damen Avenues in Wicker Park. The "six corners" is one of the busiest parts of the city and is as a diverse cross section of culture, shopping, restaurants and people watching.
GETTING TO THE THEATRES
Collaboraction has 2 theatres on the 3rd floor, the Pentagon and Room 300.
To get to Collaboraction, you can enter at the Collaboraction door at (2 doors south of the Flat Iron main entrance and come right up the stairs to our 3rd floor lobby and box office OR:
If you would like to use the elevator, enter the main entrance and take the elevator to the 3rd floor. From there take a left if you are going to Room 300 or take a right if you are going to the Pentagon Theatre and follow the reverse S shaped pathway down the hallway (this is a little confusing, so, follow the posters on the wall to the show you are seeing, from the elevator take a right, another right, another right, a left down the hall, another left and then a right and you are in the Collaboraction lobby!)
Valet parking is $10 and is available for Collaboraction guests right in front of the Flat Iron at any of the restaurant valets (they all honor our audience parking!). They are all run by the same company and you can leave your car there till late.
There is also ample metered street parking, but that will only get you 2 hours (at $4 per hour) at a time.
If you are up for the big game of free street parking, the first place to look is around Wicker Park (the actual park), located on block south of North Ave. off of Damen Ave. The park is a triangle and both sides of the street around the entire park are FREE/UN-METERED parking on Wicker Park Ave., Schiller Ave. or Damen Ave. You can find additional FREE parking on Schiller, west of Damen Ave. and on Concord Pl. off of Milwaukee Ave., just North of North Ave.
Train - Collaboraction is just steps away from the Damen Blue Line Stop
Bus - There are 3 buses that stop at the "six corners" - The 50 (Damen Ave.), the 56 (Milwaukee Ave.) and the 72 (North Ave.)
FOOD and DRINKS
There are so many great bar and restaurants within 1 block of the Flat Iron Arts Building. Here are some of our favorites
Bin Win Cafe - great food and wine, just down the street at 1559 N. Milwaukee. Ask about Collaboraction audience discounts or packages
Forno - Get Italian food and small plates right across the street
