The Standard, Hollywood
The white and blue undulating facade of The Standard blends perfectly with the cloudless azure skies of the Sunset Strip. The interior has a kitschy mid-century vibe: the pool is filled with flamingo-pink inflatables and surrounded by cobalt-blue AstroTurf, ping-pong tables and rows of paper-white sunloungers. Its paradisiacal setting is overlooked by the (pet-friendly) rooms, which are home to custom Andy Warhol curtains, trendy line-art throws and overstuffed minibars. Don’t leave without swinging by the desertscape of the Cactus Lounge – the regular live acoustics will lull you into a wicker clamshell-style seat before you’ve blinked twice.
