Usually just showing up at the club works OK if you're not too late. Some advance ticket sales for certain shows - buy your tickets from the club's website...
There is a friendly valet right behind the club. Street parking is possible, but challenging.
Places to eat nearby:
Clearly the easiest option is El Cholo (1025 Wilshire - could it be closer?), simple, no-frills Mexican. If they're in season, try the green corn tamales.
