Best Now-Defunct Secret Parking Lot

CofC lot behind Kickin' Chicken

Staff Pick

One of the best-kept downtown Charleston parking ninja secrets is that a handful of College of Charleston surface parking lots tucked between buildings south of Calhoun are free after hours and on weekends. Until last summer, the big ol' lot behind the Sottile Theater was a reliable go-to spot for downtown weekend warriors who needed a place to stash their ride for the day (or at least until the hangover wears off). No mas. Since empty lots below the Crosstown can't sit undeveloped for too long, especially not one within the real estate-hungry College of Charleston's reach (remember the old Yo Burrito?), now you'll find the bones of a brand spankin' new College dorm being built where one of our favorite parking hideaways once lived. We think we've already found our next favorite, but we're not giving any hints.
