How is the modern streetcar construction on Congress Street affecting Club Crawl®?
The section of Congress Street between Toole and Fifth avenues—the area between the Rialto Theatre and Hotel Congress—will remain a part of the Club Crawl® enclosure. However, the section of Congress Street between Fifth and Sixth avenues will be under construction. To make room for everyone, the Club Crawl® enclosure will include both Fifth and Sixth avenues between Congress and Broadway Boulevard. We have set up a corridor along Broadway to connect the Tejano/La Preciosa Stage on Sixth Avenue with the Bud Light/My 92.9 Stage on Fifth Avenue, as well as all of the venues on the east end of Congress.
How do I get into Club Crawl®? How do I avoid the lines?
There are still two main entrances to Club Crawl®. The east entrance is at the corner of Fifth and Toole avenues (near Hotel Congress), and the west entrance is at Sixth Avenue and Congress Street. To keep up with the increasing crowds at Club Crawl®, we have made both the east and west entrances twice the size to accommodate the crowds. We still advise folks to show up early to beat the rush—and to enjoy all the great acts we have scheduled at Club Crawl®.
How do I get a VIP pass? What does that do for me?
VIP passes can be purchased for $20 in advance, or $25 at the door. There are a limited number available, so we recommend going to Zia Records to purchase yours before they run out. VIP pass-holders will have their own entry lanes at both entrances. The VIP pass should also get you to the front of the line at all of the venues. Best of all: There will be a special VIP tent and seating area next to the Bud Light Stage. This VIP area will have its own bar and bathrooms.
Finally ... where should I park?
The closest parking area is the Centro parking garage, just east of the Rialto Theatre. On Club Crawl® night, this garage will only be accessible from westbound Broadway; you will turn right just after the southbound Toole exit. Parking is $5, and you can park all night.
The next-best option sits one block away, at the corner of Pennington Street and Sixth Avenue. To access this garage, head south on Stone Avenue; turn left on Pennington; and then travel east to the Scott Street entrance. There are 750 parking spots here, and the price is only $3 for the entire night.
There are also 1,000 on-street parking-meter spaces near Club Crawl® that are free on weekends. The La Placita Garage, at Church Avenue and Jackson Street (one block south of Broadway), has an additional 500 spaces. With four other large parking garages nearby, the total number of spaces downtown totals well more than 14,000.
