    Lisa Simone (daughter of the great Nina Simone) doing a wonderful midnight show on a stormy Tuesday night. Came here with Inès and Ben. Pricey cocktails ($21), but that was one of the best sazeracs I've had in years.

    One of, if not the hardest club to get into, the drinks here are expensive but it's all about the view here. Try to arrive early not only for a better chance at entry, but also to catch one of the best sunsets of your life.

    With dramatic city views and epic, late-night parties, the Top of the Standard is a beloved New York spot. Whether you're indulging in brunch or enjoying cocktails in the evening, it's the perfect summer spot.

    The views aren't to be missed, and neither is their Secret Garden ($20), a twist on the classic martini that even James Bond would approve of. Creator Gates Otsuji tells us his creation is "the cleanest dirty martini I can offer".

    When you want a drink with a view you won't find a better place.

    The stunning gilded lounge--as well as its notorious bathrooms--have floor to ceiling windows that offer some of the most sweeping views in downtown Manhattan.

    Okay, maybe a cliche, but their Penny Drops are the reason that it has become a cliche, and nobody does them better.

    Still one of the best places for a relaxed, but opulent cocktail.

    My Boyfriend and I planned on having drinks at the Top of the Standard to celebrate his birthday, as part of our staycation in the Standard High Line hotel. We were told by the front desk of the hotel that we were to get to the bar by 8.30pm at the latest, and not get out thereafter as re-entry is near impossible (after 9pm). We made the mistake of leaving 5 minutes after our arrival at the bar as it was really empty at that point in time, and we stupidly went back to our room for a bit to guzzle champagne and wait for the crowd to pick up. However, when we went back 30 minutes later, the entryway to the bar had shifted from the main entrance at the top floor of the hotel to the side entrance of the hotel, and they actually denied us entry as we weren't on the guest list of the so-called 500-person private party that was going on that night. We were very well dressed too, which means that if you're not rich and/or famous you're not good enough to be let in. What a complete waste of a night with rude, snobbish, arrogant staff (these were the staff who were on duty after 9pm). The next day, upon checking out of the hotel at noon, we decided to try our luck once again. This time, we were allowed in - we were the only customers there and the service was pretty good - a far cry from the outrageous snobbery we had experienced the night before. The view was amazing and the cocktails were pretty decent, but it's not a place I'll go back to anytime soon. How I rated them: 1 star because of the staff's haughtiness (those that were on duty after 9pm at the entrance by the side of the hotel)

    You dont need a reservation but it would assure you a good table. Drinks are expensive but quality. The view and atmosphere are the best in the city, by far, even on a bad weather day! Totally enclosed area and a secret rooftop! Go now!

    The roof top bar serves wine in glasses fit for water and the service was horrible totally absent. We had to ask for forks and knife . The view is obviously great but the bar is not well organised so not worth the price.

    Very trendy place and normally busy with young new yorkers out for a good time. There is normally a queue to go up. The outdoor bar on the roof top is a popular place and the lounge below that has a small pool bedecked with male and female models just for eye candy. The main restaurant has a strict dress code so check before you go.

    Don't miss out this fantastic bar on The Top of the Standard. Amazing view towards Hudson River, down town New York and the liberty statue. I loved the cocktails with champagne, the cozy and posh architecture. This place is very popular and you might pop into a celebrity...

    This rooftop bar has a limited food menu and small bar but the views are great. The service is just adequate because I think they under staff. Staff is friendly. Look down the Hudson to see the Stature of Liberty (a bit small from this distance). View of the Freedom Tower is also amazing. If you go to the north side there is smoking which allowed me to enjoy a cigar.

    The burger was great as was the duck sliders. We sat at the window facing south and had memorable view of the Freedom Tower and lower Manhattan as the evening came on. Given the great view and good food I would highly recommend you do this if you get the chance.

    A great scene.... love it for after dinner cocktails! Was a bit crowded when we went and all the 'reserved' tables are a bit frustrating when no one is sitting and so many people standing. But overall, great cocktails and great atmosphere. And those views.......

    My friend and I came here July 4th in the afternoon. We were at Le Bain but it seemed like lots of young, drunk college kids so we ventured over to the Boom Boom Room. The views are amazing, the decor is quintessential NYC elegance. Food and drinks are slightly more expensive ($16 for a cocktail) but the views and quality is there. Will definitely return on a special night out with friends or date.

    Great views, wonderful design. Hostesses need to professionalize and look less bored. Food was good, though very limited menu. Main dining room has great setting, and the roof is accessible from this venue. Roof is more of a trendy hipster bar with astounding views over Manhattan.

    We made a reservation at the Top of the Standard two weeks in advance. We went straight to the 18th floor and were seated with a very nice view of the downtown area. The Menu was small which we were aware of and only had small plates. It was pricey for what you get and the drink prices were outrageous which we were also aware of. We decided just to eat and enjoy the views and walked up to the rooftop for a few pictures prior to leaving.

    Heard rave reviews about this roof top bar and an aspect of it was good - views of over New York and the Hudson River but as a bar it was lacking. Waitress service is basically non existent meaning long queues at the bar, the bar staff are not overtly welcoming while sitting opportunities are limited! It was also packed which made it a little comfortable just even enjoying the view though we did manage it and it was worth it. Would we go again. Most likely not but we were pleased we did it.

    I surprised my wife with drinks and tapas at the Top of the Standard for a night out in the city. It surpassed my expecations, and completely delighted her. We loved the gold tones, the ambience, views of NYC, and the live, gentle music. The food was outstanding. OUTSTANDING. ...and the vibe just made everything perfect. Highly recommended.

    High-end luxury atmosphere and excellent cocktails. Try the pornstar Martini while enjoying the panoramic view. Make sure to visit the open rooftop. I would generally stop by there to relax a bit after a champagne brunch in Meatpacking. district.

    This is a fun spot for a drink and an amazing view. I didn't love Lebain the downstairs area and found it to be better early. It got very popular as the night went on and got a bit full for my liking.

    Located at the top (18th floor) of The Standard hotel in the meat packing district, offers a superb location and definitely one of the best view of Manhattan. Atmosphere is great and the mix between the live music session and the 30's decor will give a memorable experience. Service at the bar is, unfortunately not at the same level of the expectoration and, even a simple order of a portion of fries (they don't serve any canapé with the drinks) can take up to 30 minute (unacceptable). It's very expensive, but the premium for the view it's justified. Free entrance for the bar, if want to be seated at a table, reservation is a must.

    Poor welcome, so we sat down. Waited 10 minutes for service. Then we were told we had to move table as this was reserved.....we had a reservation! Just absolutely shocking service and a poor welcom. Waited at the entrance after checking in at the door, no one showed us to a table! They all looked at us! Can't wait to get out of here!
