Visiting Glassando in downtown Iowa City –parking, biking and public transit options

Glassando is a locally owned jewelry store located in downtown Iowa City. We invite you to visit our jewelry store when you are in Iowa City! Currently our Iowa City store hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 AM to 6 PM. Currently due to Covid-19, we are requiring masks be worn in our  jewelry store.

Glassando is located inside on the first floor of the Old Capitol Town Center. The Old Capitol Town Center is also called the Old Capitol Mall and is located directly across Clinton Street from the Iowa City Ped Mall.  The University of Iowa has offices on the top floor of the Old Capitol Town Center, and also refers to the building as the University Capitol Center.  The Old Capitol Town Center is located just next to the University of Iowa Pentacrest. The Pentacrest is home to the Old Capitol Building, for which Old Capitol Town Center is named.  If you are visiting the University of Iowa Campus, Glassando is right nearby!  

If you are coming by car to visit Glassando, metered street parking is available around the Iowa City Downtown District, but often this fills up fast.  It can be easier to plan on parking in the Capitol Street Parking Ramp located at 220 S Capitol St. The Capitol Street Parking ramp is attached to the Old Capitol Town Center, and offers the first hour of parking FREE! After that, additional hours are just one dollar. The Old Capitol Town Center, is also within easy walking distance of the Dubuque Street Parking Ramp located adjacent to the Graduate Iowa City Hotel.

It is also easy to take the bus to Glassando. The Downtown Bus Interchange, where many of the City of Iowa City buses come too, is located right outside the Old Capitol Town Center doors at the corner of Clinton and Burlington. 

If you are biking to Downtown Iowa City, please be advised that there are bike racks located right near the Old Capitol Town Center, but I would advise locking your bike.
