The name doesn’t lie, Top of the Standard is located at the top of the Standard Hotel, but also literally tops any high standard I ever held for any hotel bar and restaurant. Located in Chelsea, the Standard bar and restaurant is incredibly large, beautiful, and encompasses all cliche that is New York City. The views out of their floor to ceiling windows are unbeatable as well. Moreover, the views from their bathrooms are EVEN BETTER – seriously, I could’ve just stayed in a bathroom stall all night (again, I wish I was kidding but the bathrooms are nicer than my parents house). Expectingly, a bit pricey, but I went post-finals and had an even more perfect “treat yo-self” dinner and drinks combo that I was hoping for.
