You’re going to eat dinner anyway—you’d better if a long night of drinking and dancing is on the itinerary. So why not leverage your meal ticket into your nightlife ticket? A deep nod of gratitude goes first to Tao and Lavo for offering years ago to escort hotties and partiers from dinner table to dance floor. Today, you can find other nightclubs hopping on board. Want to hit Surrender? Eat at Andrea’s. For 1 Oak, eat at Stack. If you’re headed to The Bank, start at Yellowtail or Fix. Hakkasan? Eat at Hakkasan. You’ll still pay cover, but get to skip the line. Take a tip from the locals: Start your night with a great meal (there might even be a DJ in your restaurant!) and avoid the hassles often associated with getting into the top clubs.

And that’s just the top of an eclectic bill that features more than 70 acts, along with comedy, interactive art installations, a group art exhibit featuring the work of Mark Ryden, Tara McPherson and Shepard Fairey and much more. Last year saw more than 137,000 attendees trod the festival footprint. Who’s ready for more?
