Bugalow8 on Behind the Burner – I just read about the food at Bungalow8 on Behind the Burner. com - it looks delisshhh
Awful For Private Events – Organized a private event here for over 100 people. Manager lied about state of air conditioning and then disappeared, leaving someone just as incompetent in charge. She arrived late and did not know how to handle the situation properly. Had to cancel all the food for the dinner on the upper section and moved those guests next door. The doorman was helpful. Obviously they do not know how to handle anything if they can't get things fixed before major events. I do not recommend this place to anyone wanting to book a private event.
Great Place if you can get through the door! – If you can get passed the doorman your experience here will be great. If you are ready to spend $350 or so on a $25 bottle of gray goose, then this is where you need to be. Be prepared to dress to the nine because you may run into a celebrity or two!!
Different from the other meatpacking clubs – I went here for the first time two weeks ago because a friend had a connection. This place is really cool, small, not crowded, very different scene from the other clubs in the area. The crowd is different too, hipsters, Euros, no ibankers that's for sure, didn't see any celebs. The inside is like a safari with palm trees and black and white pokadot seats. Good dancing, doesn't pick up until 2am. If you can get in, I would recommend checking this place out.
aahhmaazzinggg AMAZING uh.may.zing :] – i dont know what everyones talking about that its not a great place to go. i mean its not very big if thats the issue.. but it is decorated beauutifully, service is amazing, we got a table last time so we didnt have to stand. Annddd Lenny Kravitz came through for a little partying. Pretty expensive, yes. 3 shots were 50 bucks. but the service is amazing. we got hungry and they made a DELICIOUS 3 cheese pizza for us. im going back again this friday sooooo doo it uppp
Full of "celebutantes," whatever those are – Bungalow is filled with people like "nightlifecelebutante," so all you really need to do is read her (his?) review to decide whether or not this is a place you want to be bothered with. As for "celebrity sightings," if that's your kink, go for it, but make sure that you have a sufficiently broad definition of the word "celebrity" (i.e., you should be satisfied with a sighting of the half-brother of the second cousin of someone who got booted in the second round of the second season of "American Idol" or Bai Ling) or you will go home sad and unfulfilled. That said, the drinks are good.
It's a nightclub that over-hyped and a celeb magnet, big whoop. – Don't listen to the rewiewer below me, I'd change the name Bungalow 8 to Bungle 8 because it's so lame. So what, you get past the doorman, it ain't that hard, just wear a dress and be young.
Also, do not forget to tip the bathroom attendant or she will freak out at you and scream at you for being a 'cheap b%&#h'. Why must I pay everytime I use the loo, I already gave her $3 the first time?! Then, if you are not rich enough, you won't be able to sit down, because to nab a banquet you either have to have bottle service (and my paltry paycheck doesn't cover Cristal) or you can just sit at one and hide the 'Reserved' sign that's on the table. Their's plenty of eurotrash and empty headed bimbos to go around, and the two (horrible) times I've been there, I never saw any celebs or anyone who even looked like a model, not that I give two poops about that anyway. The only thing I liked about it was the decor of the banquets; I really dig the giant polka dot and striped look, very nice.
Although I shouldn't be so harsh because a table did invite my friends and me to sit with them and share in their booze; whole bottles of Makers Mark and Stoli Vodka, etc, so that wasn't so bad. But really, if you're into Butter, Bungalow, Marquee, Gansevoort and all those other ridiculous, and dare I say trashy, nightclubby places, by all means, go for it. But if you have a brain, I would avoid at all costs.
It's Bungalow... enough said – Bungalow 8 is one of my favorite places in the city. Not for dancing, eating, or drinking. It is truly a place to relax and figure out where your friends are and how you're going to get home. It's pointless to go there before 2am because anyone worth seeing is somewhere else until that point.
The private room is nice but I don't see why everyone is in love with the bathrooms, the ones at the Hotel Gansevoort are much nicer.
Monday night is the best night to go there, after Butter of course. Tuesday nights are also good. I haven't been there on a weekend yet and I don't plan on it.
Is it hard to get in, yes. Once the doorman knows your face and trusts you well then it's easy. All you have to do is get in once and it's a cake walk after that.
But whatever you do DO NOT take pictures of the celebs inside. It will get you kicked out. I know. I've seen it.
Go for the scene, go to say you've been there. But don't expect the secrets of the universe to unlock. It's just like every other club on 27th street. Except it's impossible to get in to. But then again so is Cain.
all these clubs are leaving that area and moving downtown or to the meatpacking. i heard PM is opening a new spot....i read it on some blog public-accessblog.blogspot
Just don't go – Of course we were excited to get into Bungalow 8. The service was excellent and the people, for the most part, were beautiful. However, we were extremely confused about the music, which ended up ruining an otherwise great night. Almost every song was from the B-list bin that Banana Republic refuses to play in their stores. Imagine going to one of the best clubs in NYC and trying to get excited when Roy Orbison's music steals the show. We waited until 2 AM, but nothing happened then either. By 2:30, some motown was jamming and the level of our confusion reached new heights. We abandoned 1/2 a bottle at the table at a prime location in the club and were left to believe that we should reconsider drinking in the future. We are currently pondering leaving New York altogether. We were envious of the "losers" that got rejected at the door and were forced to go elsewhere.
