With a backdrop of city skyline, the rooftop bar of the Standard is a longtime favorite. Where else can you find drinks, dancing, a tempting swimming pool, and waterbeds (yes, waterbeds)? It's easy to spend the whole evening here—which is probably a good idea, considering the lengthy weekend lines. The west side of the roof is an enclosed biergarten where you can order food or play a game of table tennis. Expect to pay a $20 cover charge on Friday and Saturday
after 7 pm.
