Ticket surcharges begin with credit card processing fees. These are added to ticket purchases in proportion to the price of the ticket, go directly to credit card companies, and are unavoidable. To cover costs, pay their employees, and turn a bit of a profit, the ticketing company then adds their own surcharge as well—again, standard operating procedure. We’re intentionally working with SF-based Eventbrite in part because they’re fundamentally opposed to unnecessary surcharges (as opposed to the likes of Ticketmaster, infamous for adding up to 25% in surcharges!)
No, but it’ll help expedite things if you do. Alternatively, bring up your ticket order on your phone when you’re in line waiting and have it ready when you check in.
No, but it’ll be easier for everyone if you show up together.
We don’t have a separate VIP area for this show as we did before, as the space and crystallized vision of the smaller capacity don’t really lend itself to it. That said – We do have private rooms available we can create an environment in for you and friends. Contact us for details: info@newbohemianye.
Here’s a map. The Mint is centrally located at the corner of Mission and 5th St in San Francisco, just down the street from the Powell St BART station (BART runs all night on NYE, by the by); readily accessible from highways 101 and 80, and a number of Muni bus lines, and supremely accessible by bike and taxi. There’s a big parking garage kitty corner to venue you can park at all night (for a fee).
There is no dress code—the sky’s the limit on your creativity. That being said, New Bohemia is a themed NYE party where participants are encouraged to snazz up and get in the spirit of the cross section of worlds we are creating and bringing together inside The Mint. Not a hippy-paisley Bohemia mind you, but more along the lines of the Burning Man playa meets Moulin Rouge. A kinky, naughty twist is A-OK and encouraged, but, as much as we hate to say it, no outright nudity.
Nalgene-style water bottles or CamelBak-style hydration packs are cool so long as they’re empty (there’ll be tap water in some bathrooms and free water stations at some bars). As usual, you won’t be allowed to bring in your own beverages, food, recording devices, drugs or weapons of any kind. All bags, purses, backpacks, etc., will be thoroughly checked at the door.
SLR cameras are NOT allowed without a press pass, which you can inquire about here: firstname.lastname@example.org. Even with a press pass, you cannot take anyone’s picture without their expressed consent. Anyone seen taking pictures without consent of the attendees risks immediate removal from the event and confiscation of your memory card.
Doors at 9pm. Make the most of your night and come early to maximize your night and avoid lines. Please don’t show up at 11:45 expecting to be in by midnight! You risk ringing in the New year in line.
No, so bring it.
The earlier you arrive the shorter it will be. That said, we can only sell a limited amount of tickets to the smaller Mint, much less than the Armory, so inevitably lines won’t be much of an issue and our team will do all we can to get you in fast!
We will post as soon as we have it done.
There’s a big parking garage kitty corner to venue you can park at all night (for a fee).
