Fodor's Southern California 2014
Downtown L.A. Standard
Downtown L.A. Standard Review
Housed in the former Superior Oil Headquarters, the Standard's interior flaunts a cool steel design bursting with bright pop art furniture that would make Andy Warhol proud. Take the elevator to the rooftop lounge for a spectacular view and a dip in the pool. Playful perks like circular waterbeds, pod couches, and S-shaped tanning chairs lend a party setting.
Nearby skyscrapers serve as video projection screens for hipsters to groove to at night, as the place pumps with an in-house DJ and an influx of L.A.'s beautiful people. Call ahead to make sure you can get in. Otherwise it's worth a visit for a breakfast or lunch in the screaming yellow '60s-style diner to take in the ambience without having to push through the party crowd. Look for a beer garden to open in 2012.
