Whenever I would have friends in town asking for the best rooftop, I would always take them to the Boom Boom Room at The Standard Hotel. Offering the best views in Manhattan, delicious cocktails and a chic setting, this place never disappoints.
The Standard Hotel sits in the heart of the trendy Meatpacking district, overlooking the Hudson River. Hop on the elevator all the way to the top, push a large solid golden door, welcome to the Boom Boom Room. The most glamorous parties are hosted here during Fashion Week but I have come to enjoy this spot almost as much during the day as during the night.
We picked a table right by the windows in order to have front row seats for the sunset. An Aperol Spritz, the gentle sound of live jazz music and good company – what else can you ask for?
