The Theatre space, foyer and bar are fully accessible via an automatic lift next to the small staircase outside. The automatic lift will give you step free access to the main foyer/bar area and therefore access to the downstairs theatre space. Toilet facilities at Basement are gender neutral and we have a wheelchair accessible toilet immediately to the left of the entrance. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the show start time.


Head down to the bottom of Greys Ave. Before you go into the Civic underground car park, swing a right and you've found us in the Greys Avenue car park. There are plenty of bus options and if you're getting an Uber or taxi to Basement, they can drop you off and pick you up right in front of the entrance to Basement. We're located at Lower Greys Ave in the AT Greys Ave carpark.


There is one accessible car park right outside Basement. If you would like to reserve this parking space for your visit, please email. Basement is situated in the middle of a public car park which opens at 6pm and costs $12. These car parks are pretty accessible as well, but please be aware that the ground can be slightly uneven.
