Among its many blessings New York City is anointed with a myriad of amazing rooftop lounges. Each year new ones pop up and others are in the works for the next year’s spring/summer season. The 18th floor of the Standard Hotel in the Meatpacking District is home to the Top of The Standard (aka: The Boom Boom Room) and its rooftop lounge, the Le Bain a ‘must visit’ among New York City’s rooftop lounge scene.
In order to get to the rooftop guests must pass through the La Bain’s double black doors. Once guests enter the lounge they are greeted by the cool interior design with black tiled walls, black leathered sofas and a disco ball hanging above a Jacuzzi. The La Bain is a place to really party in NYC. For additional fun there is a staircase that leads to the outdoor rooftop space. The staircase walls are covered with graffiti art making the climb up the stairs a mini art gallery experience. The rooftop is covered with artificial grass where pink waterbeds and beach chairs line the middle of the space. Guests can lie down, relax in comfort and enjoy the beautiful panoramic views of New York City while sipping a $200 bottle of Dom Perignon . A hot tub is also available for those who choose to dip. Fashionable servers with movie star/model looks are dressed in all white. There is a bar area that is covered from the sun for those who want to enjoy a drink away from the heat and feel the cool breeze when the wind blows. On my recent visit, they added a section for ordering crepes that resembles a kid’s tree house. But the highlight of the Le Bain is its view and the vending machine that sells male and female bathing suits. If you didn’t bring your bathing suit, no worries, they’ve got you covered.
The drink prices are pretty average for the area, $14 for specialty drinks and about $9 for beer. The Le Bain’s rooftop is home to one of my favorite drinks, the Frozen Grapefruit Gimlet; made with crushed ice, grape fruit juice and vodka – an ideal drink for the summer time. The drink is very fruity, I never tasted the alcohol, but the drink will hit you. Another drink that I enjoyed was the Paris Spritz, made with Aperol, St. Germaine, Top Soda and champagne. The drink is not overly sweet and the alcohol taste is almost nonexistent. Food at the La Bain consists of ridiculously priced snacks. If you are willing to pay for a $5 bag of chips that you can purchase for $2 at a deli around the corner, then go for it.
The Le Bain’s rooftop is a great place to have a drink after work or during a summer weekend afternoon. It’s relaxing but can be pretentious at times – just like the rest of the Meatpacking area. The crowd is the ‘fashionable, chic, sexy (six inches high heels wearing wannabe models/actresses) seen and want to be seen crowd.’ Whenever you’re in the Meatpacking area or you just have the urge to drink during the summer/springtime make the Le Bain rooftop a destination.
