If you thought your days of dinner and a movie were over due to COVID, The Standard, High Line is here to bring back the date-night tradition. Debuting this week, the hotel has transformed their outdoor plaza into The Forest, a woodland-inspired pop-up (those seem to be trending, eh?) with socially-distanced seating for all-day outdoor dining, a new menu of seasonal goodies, and a series of near-daily of holiday movie screenings.

The festive outdoor dining space is filled with fresh pine trees and twinkling lights, plus outdoor heaters and faux-fur throw blankets to keep you warm and cozy. And the food-and-drink menu is similarly warming: Think: cheese fondue for two, fully loaded baked potatoes and hot cocktails like spiked cocoa and mulled cider.
