Fodor's Review

With a backdrop of city skyline, the rooftop bar of The Standard, Downtown L.A. 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. You can play a game of Ping-Pong at SPiN Standard on the mezzanine. Expect to pay a $20 cover charge on Friday and Saturday after 7 pm.
