Affair On 8th is owned by George Garrity, originally from Co. Mayo in Ireland. George is also the owner of a contracting firm who specializes in high end residential renovations throughout Manhattan and you can see this from the expert craftmanship that has gone into creating this wonderfully cosy bar & restaurant. George's goal was to create a place that would cater to people in all walks of life, and that would host a variety of live entertainment, along with a high quality food menu, wines & spirits.The focal point of this fabulous place is the cosy fireplace where you can sit and enjoy a drink in the winter. Weekend entertainemnt consists of various live bands & traditional music sessions. We have a live traditional Irish session every Sunday afternoon at 3.00p.m. For all other live entertainment check out our events page.Our food is prepared to the highest quality and brings out that freshly home cooked taste with every dish.
