The official parking deck of the Rialto is the 100 Peachtree Parking Deck, located one block past the theatre, on Fairlie. Go past the Rialto on Luckie St (Auburn Ave), then take an immediate right as soon as you pass the Quality Hotel (onto Fairlie). Follow the signs that say “Official Rialto Parking” and turn right into the 100 Peachtree Parking Deck. (The deck is not clearly marked as 100 Peachtree, so look for the “Official Rialto Parking” signs and flags).  The address for the 100 Peachtree Building Parking Garage at 123 Fairlie St NW, Atlanta, GA 30303‎.

To access the Rialto after parking in the deck, take the elevator to the 3rd floor to exit onto Forsyth Street. Press the green button to the left of the double glass doors to release the locking mechanism and exit onto Forsyth Street. The Rialto will be on your right.

During weekdays, the deck is open during regular business hours, closing at 10:30 p.m. on non-show nights. On show nights, it stays open until 1 hour after the performance ends. On the weekends, the deck opens for Rialto Series shows, starting 2 hours prior to the performance time and closing 1 hour after the performance ends.

To re-enter the deck after hours, use the same Forsyth Street access to the deck. Swipe your parking ticket through the reader on the right side of the double glass doors to gain entry. If there is no attendant at the gate as you drive out, there is another reader at the gate for you to swipe your ticket in order to exit. Should you have any difficulties with entering or exiting the deck after hours, you may contact 100 Peachtree Building 24-Hour Security at 404-521-6590.
