Tao Group Hospitality is coming to the Lower East Side.
The nightlife giant behind celebrity hotspots like Little Sister Lounge and Tao Downtown is opening five new food and beverage venues next month, an insider tells Page Six exclusively.
We hear the new spaces will be situated inside the forthcoming Moxy hotel on the Lower East Side and are set to open their doors in late October.
Tao Group Hospitality will launch modern Japanese restaurant Sake No Hana, rooftop lounge The Highlight Room, piano lounge Silver Lining, lobby cafe and bar The Fix and nightclub Loosie’s.
Our source tells us that Loosie’s will have a “vibe” that is “reminiscent of the clubs in the ’90s and early 2000s.”
The project marks Tao Group Hospitality’s first-ever venture on the Lower East Side and its fourth with Lightstone Group.
“Downtown New York City has always been known as a crossroads of entertainment and as an incubator for creatives,” Tao Group Hospitality co-CEO Noah Tepperberg says in a statement to Page Six. “Our newest offering stays true to that reputation by bringing together five unique restaurants and nightlife venues under one roof.”

A-listers who have frequented the hotspots over the years include Drake, Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Leonardo DiCaprio and Justin Bieber, among others.
