Hard to say what's more eye-catching at the Standard's rooftop bar, the giant Logan's Run-style water-bed pods and futuristic furniture, Astroturf deck, and outdoor fireplace (all schemed in red and white), or the breathtaking view of downtown, which is quite splendid both day and night. Then there's the crowd, a mix of artsy, hip and fashion-forward - both hotel guests and local party people - who love to lounge in skimpy swimwear by the pool during the warmer months. Top promoters throw splashy bashes here every weekend with top DJs from around the world. The hotel's groovy magenta-hued lobby also offers DJs spinning slightly more chilled grooves on a regular basis.
