Le Bain at The Standard Hotel

Neighborhood: Meatpacking District
848 Washington St.  
Website: lebainnewyork.com
Price Point: $$

Chances are, if you haven’t been to Le Bain, you’ve heard about its über-exclusive door policy and the sickest skyline views NYC nightlife has to offer. During the summer season, expect to find model-type chicks frolicking in the pool downstairs, or head upstairs to the roof (note the condom vending machine on your way up), where you’ll find a pale pink bar and huge coral, round waterbed/beanbag chair hybrids that encourage friendly lounging. While the unassuming plastic chairs give the place a laid back vibe, the crowd is often celeb-ridden, so don't stare. Did we mention this place has a sick view?
