Unlike airport security, nightclub security won't confiscate your shoes, but both may tackle you if you attempt to smuggle in a disco ball filled with firecrackers. Exercise your right to merriment with today's Groupon: for $199, you get bottle service, VIP table, express entry for up to five people, and two bottles of champagne at Sutra nightclub in Costa Mesa (a $400 value).
Voted Best Place to Dance in 2009 by readers of the Orange County Register, Sutra has an ample drink menu and equally ample dance floor that promote late-night revelry. The VIP pass enables you and up to four friends to arrive at Sutra between 9 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., cruise past the envy-ridden waiting lines, and park at a private table. Once seats are selected, a dedicated server will present your party with two bottles of champagne, perfect for sipping on or emptying out to use as a still bank. Socialize at the VIP table before heading out to the floor, where the bubbly tonic enhances your dances and the beats are fresher than skimmed cream.
The dance floor is an unearthly arena with pulsating lights, glittering baubles, groove-inducing DJs and performers, and enough space to host dance battle re-enactments of all three Punic wars. Sutra's modern décor blends a variety of ornamentation styles with pale leather couches illuminated by dreamy purple and blue hues.
Sutra was named No. 1 for Best Place to Dance and Best Bachelor-Bachelorette Party Places in 2009 by the Orange County Register. Ten TripAdvisors give the business an average of 3.5-stars, more than 260 Yelpers give an average of 2.5-stars, and nearly 3,700 Facebookers like it.
