Standard Downtown

Even if you don’t hop in the pool, you can still plunge into the fun on one of the bright red waterbed pods scattered across the roof at the Downtown outpost of Andre Balaz’s hip hotel. Take the elevator up to the top, where mod furnishings give a slightly space-age vibe—the perfect backdrop for a crowd ranging from folks waiting for next year’s Burning Man to hotel guests checking out the scene. Weekend afternoons call for cocktail lounging—try the sweet and sour Hennessy Lemonade—but beware the $20 cover after 7pm, which doesn’t deter the lines that can stretch out into the parking lot.

The rooftop is a great place to host a birthday (as I did), and to just lounge around with friends! Get there early for no cover, and enjoy drinks and bar service right from your seat by the fireplace or by the pool in a waterbed pod. Such a cool modern-chic setting overlooking downtown LA, it's really a great place to visit whether you're a local or visiting from out of town. I also love that they have a Biergarten up on the rooftop, and some other fun accents to the place. You can also hop over to Spin, a few floors below, for some ping-pong bar action. The only tough part is the parking, unless you want to valet or shell out quite a bit to park at a lot around the happening area in the heart of DTLA. Other than that, you're in for a treat here at the Standard Rooftop!

Such a gorgeous rooftop with amazing views of the city! They also have fun pool parties during the summer that are open to the public, just be sure to get there early.
