When it comes to weekend nightlife, some of Irvine's hottest restaurants become some of Orange County's coolest clubs after dark.
With out a doubt, one of Irvine's trendiest places to be seen is Bistango. Wednesday through Saturday, the elegant atmosphere at Bistango is infused with live entertainment, everything from Latin Jazz to R&B to classics to contemporary cover tunes.
Irvine may be the FBI-ranked "America's Safest Big City," but when it comes to nightlife, safe, chic and late-night fun go hand in hand. And if you get hungry along the way, just head to Diamond Jamboree. Whether you're there to take the stage at Plush Karaoke Lounge, join the out-the-door line for sweet treats at the Chinese 85ºC Bakery Café or down a bowl of sizzling hot Korean soup at BCD Tofu House, milling around between Diamond Jamboree's late-night eateries Friday and Saturday nights is like another nightclub altogether.
