New York – One of my favourite location during my last visit in New York was definitively the Standard High Line Hotel besides the High Line Park.
The complex is located in the Gansevoort/Meat packing area where there are other countless great places to shop or eat/drink.
On the ground floor of the Standard is a lounge “The Standard Plaza” where you can relax outside in summer and drink or eat all day/evening long. The Biergarten also belongs to the hotel…I do not have to explain what the Biergarten is?
But my favourite spot is on the very top of the building: The BAR. “The Top of the Standard”. You have stunning views over the city and the water. But you should also look inside: The architecture, decoration…and most stunning staff with the most amazing shiny silk mini dresses I have seen as a “staff uniform”….So it does not really matter if you go during afternoon, enjoy the sunset or the night scenery, your eyes will be delighted anyway.
The also do brunch on Sunday, book in advance, cocktail attire is required.
