Amy Sacco, New York’s most celebrated nightlife and restaurant maven, began her ascent in the hospitality world with Lot 61 in 1998, which opened in an abandoned truck garage in West Chelsea.
Bungalow 8, her second collaboration with the Lot 61 team, opened in 2001, and became an acclaimed and iconic nightclub. Following the success of the club, Sacco extended the Bungalow 8 brand to London at the St. Martins Lane hotel in 2007, and to Amsterdam in 2009. Sacco’s additional projects include Bette Restaurant, which opened in 2005. She is currently a partner with LDV Hospitality in several ventures, including New York City’s No. 8 and Miami's Rec Room.
Her philanthropic ventures include being the special ambassador to the United Nations for the NGO International Renewable Energy Organization. She is also on the board of directors for the Art Production Fund and Free Arts NYC.
