What are the best places to party at Sundance Film Festival?

New nightlife experiences pop up every year during the Sundance Film Festival, though, like any good ski town, Park City has plenty of tried-and-true watering holes as well. Here are a few of our recent favorites:

Miami-based, jet-setter favorite Nikki Beach — which has permanent clubs in 10 cities — made its Sundance debut with a beach-meets-snow pop-up club in The Sky Lodge's rooftop lounge during opening weekend in 2013. This Main Street hotel, a hot spot for Sundance scenesters, was also home to the CW3PR RE:treat at The Sky Lodge, a lounge for bold-faced names and lucky non-celebrities. With Robert Redford's restaurant, Zoom, right next door, The Sky Lodge is always people-watching central.
 
Village at the Lift returned for its 11th year at Sundance in 2013, once again hosting a TAO Nightclub pop-up throughout opening weekend. Food was prepared by Vinny Dotolo and Jon Shook of Los Angeles' Son of a Gun and Animal restaurants, and other partners included Stella Artois and UGG Australia. These are just a few of the reasons the 30,000-square-foot Village at the Lift is reliably one of the festival's best places to see and be seen.
 
Aside from hosting Dave Grohl and friends in a must-see show, Park City Live was a prime stop on the after-party circuit in 2013 as it partnered with Wynn Las Vegas to bring Sin City nightlife to Sundance. Parties at the pop-up versions of Wynn's TrystXSSurrender and Encore Beach Club were practically mandatory to hear the clubs' resident DJs and surprise musical guests.
