From Socialight Entertainment:

Famous for its historical affairs, crimes of passion, and celebrated scandal, No. 8′s namesake – the renowned bungalow of the Beverly Hills Hotel – lends a reputation of mystery and intrigue. Aptly deemed the “No-Tell Motel” for its discretion, No. 8 caters to an international group of faithful habitués who value their privacy.

No. 8 is a bi-level restaurant and lounge located in the heart of New York City’s thriving Chelsea art district. No.8 stands alone as a unique experience in the context of New York nightlife and culinary enjoyment created by Amy Sacco and brought to life by Bobby Rossi and LDV Hospitality.
