The Standard East Village

The Standard East Village

****

A 21-storey tower of gleaming glass looming over the Bowery, The Standard East Village stands out dramatically from the neighbouring brick tenements. Its contemporary interiors bear the hallmarks of Italian style, the lobby floor is a jigsaw of shattered slate and an almost-all-night café-bar means you can make the most of the legendary artsy neighbourhood. PS In a former life, this hotel went by the name of the Cooper Square Hotel...

Highlights:

  • Sleek, sophisticated interiors from Milanese design king Antonio Citterio

  • Prime NYC location

  • Hard-to-beat city views

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

It’s the law that you have to whistle ‘New York, New York’ in the shower the morning before your flight. It’s also the law that you have to spend the taxi drive from the airport to The Standard East Village remarking that ‘it feels just like we’re in a movie’. By the time we arrived there, it was just a question of what sort of movie it would be. I was angling for a romantic comedy, Mrs Smith was irritable, probably because of my continuous movie comments, and it was starting to look more like a psychological thriller. I was just praying for an 18 certificate and scenes of a sexual nature.

Dining information

Restaurant:

Looking out on – and, in warmer months, spilling onto – the Bowery, Café Standard feels unexpectedly old-world New York for a hotel so stylish and modern. A neighbourhood spot from early morning power-breakfasts to late-night craft cocktails, it's the kind of cafe you want to take home with you. For a more classic restaurant feel, make your way to the adjacent, California-inspired Narcissa, helmed by Michelin-starred chef John Fraser and provided with fresh produce by André Balazs' Hudson Valley farm. Watch the chefs prepare your meal from a seat at the open-plan kitchen bar or enjoy your Dungeness crab salad while looking out onto the garden patio.

Top table:

Stake a place at one of the banquettes in Café Standard or sit outside if it's clement.

Last orders:

The cafe's cocktail-shakers remain aquiver until 2am on weekdays, 4am weekends. Narcissa is open from 6 to 11:30pm Sunday to Thursday, and until 12:30am Friday and Saturday.

Room service:

Order treats to your room around the clock. The hotel also has a stash of takeaway menus from respected local restaurants.

Hotel bar:

The Café Standard's bar is open to guests and public punters alike for food, draft beers, craft cocktails and a curated wine list well into the wee hours.
