$50 for One VIP Ticket to Taste of TAO ($100 Value)

On Thursday, October 4, at 6 p.m., an international consortium of Asian-inspired entertainers, chefs, and spirit-makers gathers around TAO Beach’s Buddha-flanked pool for the Taste of TAO event. VIPs gain entry a full hour before general-admission ticketholders and enjoy exclusive benefits that include complimentary signature cocktails, a cooking demo in the art of sushi rolling, and a gift bag. A spread of sake courtesy of Ty-Ku, Kirin, Lucky Buddha, Singha, and Ashai await taste testing, and the culinary stations feature such dishes as peking duck, sushi and sashimi, thai curry, and a forest of skewered satays. Meanwhile, exotic entertainers such as Chinese Zodiac readers, fire- and fan-dancers, and henna-tattoo artists keep revelry in full bloom. A portion of proceeds will benefit the Three Square Food Bank.

TAO Nightclub

Sprawling over 60,000 square feet inside and out, TAO is a place for the footloose, the fancy, and the free-spirited. Mingling Japanese, Chinese, Korean, and Thai cuisines, the menu entices gourmands with exotic entrees, and the dimly lit dance floor throbs to big bass beats. Plush chaise lounges with luxuriously wide cushions flank the pool at TAO Beach, a great place to relax or get romantic while chicken fighting. TAO’s portrait of opulent pleasure is completed with grace notes such as a hand-carved, 20-foot-tall Buddha, a meditative indoor koi pond, and backlit floral screens overlooking the booths.
