Le Bain Pool and Roof Bar Opens for Summer

Summer in New York City means dining outdoors, pedicure perfect toes peeping out of sandals, backyard Brooklyn cookouts, and most importantly, rooftop cocktails.  Le Bain at The Standard Hotel has reopened their rooftop bar and the infamous pool for late night swimming under the disco ball.  With DJs spinning to keep you on your dancing heels, one of the most amazing views in Manhattan (even the bathrooms are all glass windows for a breathtaking sight), and sexy ladies and gentlemen (obviously using that term to describe the men loosely), Le Bain is a year-round raging party across the hall from the Boom Boom Room.

The reopening of the pool only adds to the debauchery with extra nakedness during the warmer months.  Enjoy strong drinks in Le Bain by the bar near the pool, shred your dress if you dare to hop in for a swim, then head up to the rooftop bar on the 19th floor to snag a lawn chair on the AstroTurf, or rest on a pink waterbed for the ultimate retro escape.  According to Gotham Magazine, keeping with its French theme, a new crêpe shack will serve daily treats.  And the rooftop now has a license to play music with rumored live performances.

After a wild Daytime Emmy party two summers ago at The Standard Downtown LA, yours truly spent her fair share of tipsy time in the rooftop pool with nothing but scandalous lace underwear (no, those photos will not make it to my blog or Facebook for that matter).  And it’s safe to say that fellow party goers spent some “sexy time” on the enclosed waterbeds nearby.  After that wild night you won’t find this girl undressed at Le Bain.  Dancing with my crew by the DJ booth while admiring those in the pool is party enough for me.

To join this nightlife pool party, you must know someone (or someone who knows someone).  Whether you’re friends with the DJ of the evening or a wealthy Euro prince who has ordered bottles, namedrop your way up to the 18th floor.  Follow the sassy Stan D’Arde for the latest in-the-know Standard Hotel news.

  1. So, if we know you can we get in? ;-) I'll be in NYC in about a month for a week and would love some rooftop/hotel/outdoor/cool bar recommendations.
