Tel: 212 629 3333's insider take:

Editor's note: Bungalow 8 is currently closed for renovations.

Meant to evoke a prime bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel, this perennial hotspot bedecked in palmy decor is genuinely glamorous—a surprisingly rare feat in New York nightlife. And the crowd is often equally alluring—movie stars seem to love owner Amy Sacco, a six-foot-something Glamazon well on her way to achieving her goal of becoming a New York character. First though, you'll have to get past the notoriously tough door policy. Dress fabulously—and try to ensure that your party is predominantly young, female, and attractive.
