Bungalow 8


Bungalow 8

Bungalow 8 is a nightclub which occupies an old truck repair shop at 515 West 27th Street in New York City. The club is open Monday through Saturday from 11 P.M to 4 A.M. The concierge telephone line can be reached at 212-629-3333.

Background

Founded by Amy Sacco in 2001, the club is modeled after a series of photographs taken by American digital artist and painter Jeremy Blake. The series of photographs was originally titled "Bungalow 8." The interior is replete with Florida palm trees, potted ferns, lanterns, surfboards, vintage Danish furniture, Charles and Ray Eames fabrics, and 10 foot murals. Clients are provided with intimate seating areas and personal waitresses. There is a kitchen located in the venue which serves up late night treats to its guests, one of the most famous being "The Best-Ever Grilled Cheese Sandwich." A concierge service is available for special clients. The "New York Observer" served up a front-page story on December 7, 2006 headlined, "A Nightclub Queen Gets Ready to Sell Her Chilly Nightspot." Owner Amy Sacco later revealed in an interview that, "The whole thing is a fabrication." She admits she complained to reporter Spencer Morgan that too many liquor licenses had been issued for her West 27th Street block and that the unwashed masses were scaring away her wealthy, celebrity clientèle. "I had calls from about 800 brokers," Sacco said, "But I'm not selling Bungalow 8."

With partner Ben Pundole, Sacco opened the United Kingdom version of Bungalow 8 during September 2007 at the St. Martin's Lane Hotel in London with a series of Fashion Week parties that drew such people as pop star Prince, Sienna Miller accompanied by Welsh actor Rhys Ifans, Courtney Love, Ralph Fiennes, Kevin Spacey and Sophie Dahl.

Bungalow 8 was renovated in May of 2007. The renovation included new floors, live palm trees and ferns, new paint, stemware, and new BoConcept furniture.
