The Standard for Drinks?

caseyn | Oct 5, 2009 10:31 PM

Has anyone been to the Standard Hotel for drinks? I keep hearing it's swanky and a fun place, but I went there tonight to meet up with a friend and was disappointed to find a small area near the front door that didn't look all that fun. The snooty hostess said to go to the restaurant bar next door, the Standard Grill, but the bar looked pretty boring there too. Am I missing the cool bar at the Standard? I want to find a place in meatpacking where you can grab drinks with friends and maybe dance later (not a club though). Can anyone offer suggestions?
