City Secrets: Le Bain

Breathtaking views, an impossibly cool guest list of celebrities and tastemakers, a destination with a scandalous history and the piece de resistance: a pool. When Le Bain opened in June at the Meatpacking District?s The Standard Hotel, it was instantly clear that this nightclub would be THE place to party.

Breathtaking views, an impossibly cool guest list of celebrities and tastemakers, a destination with a scandalous history and the piece de resistance: a pool. When Le Bain opened in June at the Meatpacking District?s The Standard Hotel, it was instantly clear that this nightclub would be THE place to party.

 

Since its opening, The Standard Hotel has been stealing the show downtown with antics that people couldn?t resist paying attention to--especially with floor-to-ceiling windows in the hotel rooms that set the stage for a ?show? to passer-byers. People have embraced this downtown hot spot, making it the perfect place for a rooftop nightclub that celebrates decadence.

 

The Standard has two nightclubs that equally take center stage. Le Bain sits just next to New York?s other sexy spot, the Boom Boom Room. Head to Boom Boom to mingle with the more traditionally fashionable and socially powerful crowd, or choose Le Bain for the cool kids and bright young things ? like James Franco, Terrence Koh, Justin Theroux, Olivia Palermo and Christian Siriano. You can mingle around the pool and even go for a swim ? take advantage of the pricey but convenient swimsuit vending machine if you?re ill-prepared. Thirsty? The pool?s bar is close by with cocktails and bar snacks ? like the aptly named Paris Spritz: Aperol, St. Germain, soda and champagne. 

 

There?s no bad night to hit Le Bain ? there?s always a chic crowd of familiar faces and it?s always a party. Between the rooftop views and the pool, the club is arguably the sexiest destination right now in New York.

 

Le Bain is located at the Standard Hotel, at 848 Washington Street.
