How to Find Us: The Hemingway Room is located in the Ramsay Design Centre, a low brick building on the East side of 11 Street SE. The entrance to the space is from the South parking lot (please note we have two parking lots – one to the North of the building and one to the South. Barre Body Studio is located at this end if you see Red Point Media you are in our North lot). These lots are not connected, however if you find yourself in the North parking lot you can easily walk around the building to the South entrance.
Once you arrive, please use the entrance marked “1204 20th Ave” which is right beside Barre Body Studio.
During the evenings and weekends we have complimentary parking in both our North and South parking lots. Daytime parking is a wee bit more limited in these lots, but there is free parking within the surrounding community.
Using Car2Go is a great option as you can park in permit-only areas as well as regular street parking.
BY FOOT OR BIKE
We are situated near many bike paths and the Elbow River. Store your bike at the bicycle-rack outside (shown on map).
