To be clear, Level 8 is not a restaurant. It’s a nightlife macrocosm on the eighth floor of the Moxy DTLA where you can have a chaotic evening inclusive of both swimming and aerial burlesque. Of all the Vegas-adjacent concepts operating here, we recommend the crowd-pleasing South American steakhouse Qué Bárbaro. There's also an oyster and champagne bar, a teppanyaki spot, a bar in the shape of a carousel, a pool deck open to anyone with a dream, and...we could go on but we won't. Make a reservation at Qué Bárbaro for dinner with friends who love well-cooked, well-seasoned meat. (You'll need a res for many of the individual concepts at Level 8.) Then wander around the rooftop maze asking WTF as you go along.
