    You’ll probably use your smart phone for directions, but this is what to expect when you get here. We have a small lot to the North & South of the venue available for parking. We also encourage street parking to the West on Snelling Ave. A casual walk through the 3rd Precinct driveway and you will arrive at the venue.
  • Parking
    The Hook & Ladder Theater has a parking lot on the south side of the firehouse. The theater also has a small number of designated parking spots along the north side of the building for use. There is also free parking along Snelling Ave, which runs parallel with Minnehaha, and many nearby parking lots are accommodating local businesses like The Hook by allowing evening event parking, such as the large Rainbow Foods lot just across Lake Street. 
    The Hook and Ladder has (2) glass-door entrances to the building, one on the north side and another on the south side of the building. The Box-offioce is just inside the hallway as you enter the theater lounge.

    • Description
      Greg Koch and the Koch-Marshall Trio consists of American guitarist Greg Koch, his son Dylan Koch on drums and Hammond B3 specialist Toby Lee Marshall.
