Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse (previously Quicken Loans Arena) is home to the NBA Cleveland Cavaliers team. The venue is also home to the Cleveland Gladiators, who are an arena football team, and Cleveland Monsters AHL team. The arena’s address is at 1 Center Court, Cleveland, OH 44115. In addition to sports games at the venue, you will find many concerts and events at the arena year round.
Here are the parking tips for the venue!
Official Parking around Moda Center
The two on-site garages that fans can use directly at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse are the Gateway East Garage and the Jack Cleveland Casino Garage. Both of those lots accommodate a total of 3,300 vehicles. Be sure to visit the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse parking map to see where all of the parking garages and surface lots are. As a note, parking rates will vary depending on the event that you are seeing.
My Recommendation on Parking + Experience with SpotHero
I can save about 30% on parking when I use SpotHero over the lots next to an arena. SpotHero has a map of the parking lots and garages within walking distance of the venue. While I have not used the service in Cleveland, I have used it in cities like Boston going to a game. If you are okay with walking about 10-15 minutes from your parking spot to the arena, you can find better parking rates than the ones next to the stadium. Plus, you reserve your parking space ahead of time, so you don’t need to worry about looking for a place to park. Your spot is already reserved, so you show up to your destination, scan the barcode from your purchase, and you are good to go.
Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse Handicap Parking Spots
The Gateway East Garage and JACK Cleveland Casino Garage have ADA spots for fans to use at the arena for any event. All vehicles need to display a current state-issue disability placard or handicap parking pass for ADA parking. Handicap parking comes at a first come and first serve basis, so use SpotHero above to reserve your parking space. Finally, you can direct any questions to the parking staff working the garages at the arena.
Can you Tailgate in the Parking Lots?
There is no tailgating the in parking lots before a game, but plenty of bars are near the venue to visit. Fan favorite bars include Gateway Bar and Grill, Nick’s Sports Corner, City Tap, and Winking Lizard Tavern. In addition to those bars, fans also enjoy Wilbert’s Food and Music, Flannery’s Pub, Society Lounge, and Cleveland Bar & Grill.
Should I Take Public Transportation?
There are public transportation options for fans to use when going to The Q for any event. Many fans take the Rapid Transit Rail, which has three lines that bring fans throughout downtown Cleveland. The three rail lines meet at Tower City Center, which is a short walk to the venue. Fans can also use the downtown trolleys to get to and from the venue. The trolleys operate during the workweek from 7 AM -7 PM, which is very convenient.
In addition to the trolleys and RTR, fans can use Uber or Lyft to get to and from the venue.
