The Standard, East Village
You can’t miss The Standard East Village – it’s the only 21-story building on an otherwise low-rise street, boasting unobstructed views of Downtown Manhattan. You enter through the red-brick facade of an original tenement building (which would have typically housed several families back in the late 1800s). The renovated interior is modern and minimal, with pops of neon, floor-to-ceiling windows and vinyl upholstery in every room. Enjoy a farm-to-table dinner with biodynamic wine at Narcissa, street-side coffee at Café Standard and drinks with a drag show at NO BAR, an inclusive new-wave LGBTQ bar.
