Tao’s pop-up nightclub was located in the subterranean parking garage of the Park City Town Lift.
“While most of Park City has last call at 1:45 a.m., Noah Tepperberg and his partners in Las Vegas nightclub Tao discovered three years ago that if they turned a parking garage two levels below ground into a club, they could stay open far later,” stated journalist Marshall Heyman in the Wall Street Journal.
