If you are driving to us, please be aware there is NO PARKING on Lois Lane in the China Steps, and is very difficult getting a car in and out of this area. We recommend parking across the street at Port Place Mall OR in the parking lot indicated on the map below, which can ONLY be accessed from the southbound lane of Terminal Ave. From that parking lot there is a stairway beside Black and Blue Tattoo that takes you down into the courtyard where we are located. To avoid the stairs, you can also walk on Terminal Ave in front of the tattoo shop and the print shop and down Lois Lane.
We are just steps from the Gabriola and Protection Island Ferry, cruise ship terminal, and a short drive from Departure Bay and Duke Point Ferry, its easy to get to us from wherever you are coming from.
