Purple Dragon is located in the Ballard neighborhood, which is adjacent to Greenwood, Phinney Ridge, Fremont, Crown Hill, and Magnolia. We’re on a major arterial street within convenient access of:
- Hwy 99 Aurora Avenue N
- Metro Bus RapidRide D line — northbound & southbound bus stops are less than 1 block north of our studio on 15th Ave NW at NW 75th Street
- Metro Bus #44 — westbound & eastbound bus stops are nearby at the corner of Market Street & 15th Avenue NW, where you can transfer to #15 northbound
PARKING: Free parking on our street EXCEPT….
Monday through Friday 3-7* pm no parking on our side of 15th NW (east side)
Monday through Friday 8-10 am no parking on the opposite side of 15th NW (west side)
Parking is always free on the side streets – 75th St or 14th Ave
Caution: Cars parked on the “wrong side” of 15th Ave during the weekday morning or afternoon commute risk getting a $42 ticket.
*This used to be only 2 hours no parking in front on M-F afternoons. City recently expanded it to 4 hours. So sorry! There is always curb parking available on side streets. Ok to pull into our shared driveway briefly for pickup and drop-off. If you are driving yourself and cannot walk far, then please call or email for special parking arrangements — we have capacity for 1 non-staff car in a hidden location near our door 🙂
(We don’t want anyone to get a parking ticket on 15th between 4-6pm but in case you do get one, please bring it to your next appointment, and you’ll get a discounted treatment to help offset the fine.)
