However, we kindly ask that in exchange, you give us some grace that things around El Rey will be a bit different than usual — more noise, more crowds, and extremely limited parking. We will do our best to save parking spots for our hotel guests, but know that parking is not guaranteed. If you're cool with that, we'd love to have you!
