Eighteen floors above the Meatpacking District, atop Andre Balazs’ Standard Hotel, sits the Boom Boom Room. A tribute to ‘70s carefree decadence, the Boom Boom Room is split into two modern-retro rooms, with wavy cream-colored leather banquettes, golden fireplaces, and starburst chandeliers on the cocktail lounge side, and on the bar side, sleek black décor with a triangular hot tub in the center of the room. Not to mention, floor to ceiling windows for lots of sunlight during the day and plenty of sexy skyline at night. Additional perks include attentive service from good-looking waitresses, smoking balconies with transparent flooring (so that the 18-story drop is visible) and the high likelihood of an A-list celebrity sighting. Entry is, for the most part, limited to the famous and well-connected, which explains the crowd of disappointed would-be partiers huddled near the ground floor entrance.
