View from the roof of the Standard Hotel
Not content with having the World's Best Nightclub, Andre Balazs' Standard Hotel is upping the ante by finalizing plans to open a 19th floor rooftop bar. NBC's Ben Leventhal announced via Twitter that the venue will be opening next week, and an Airstream trailer will serve as the bar. If you recall, the Community Board had some concerns that a roof lounge would generate terrible noise impacts on the MPD. Of course, you could probably stage an ABBA reunion up there and none of the neighbors would be able to hear anything. And please don't forget that Mr. Balazs has previously looked into installing some rooftop hot tubs, which would go marvelously with some al fresco cocktails.
