Le Bain Information

Le Bain - Lounge | Rooftop Bar in New York.

Located on the eighteenth floor of the trendy Standard Hotel, Le Bain is an exclusive lounge and rooftop bar where stylish guests granted entrance can expect one of the wildest experiences in town.

Scenesters, models, and celebrities who make it past the nearly impossible door step off the elevator into an all-black room and the unmistakable scent of chlorine from the heated pool, where guests both fully clothed and stripped down to their birthday suits splash around with cocktails in hand.

Despite the venue’s exclusivity, the mood within is unpretentious and fun-loving, creating a safe haven for the moneyed and free-spirited socialites, artists, and models to cut loose after a hard day of doing whatever it is that A-listers do.

Those who prefer to keep their designer duds dry tend to gravitate toward the bar to mingle or lounge on black banquettes to admire the panoramic view of downtown Manhattan and the Hudson River, though most of the exuberant patrons are easily whipped into a dancing frenzy by the DJ’s eclectic mix of everything from electronic and hip-hop to rock and tango.

A respite from the furor is a short flight of graffiti-adorned stairs up to the glass-encased open rooftop, where low lawn chairs, tables, and round pink waterbeds scattered across the AstroTurf encourage lounging and quiet conversation.

Like most other André Balazs properties, Le Bain represents the ultimate in fabulous chic, an upbeat playground for an equally fabulous clientele.

Le Bain
Anna R. Jul 8, 2013
Le Bain has a really awesome view over the Meatpacking district of New York City, but I recommend getting there earlier than 11, especially from Thursday to Saturday. Everyone seemed to be having a good time, and there certainly seemed to be a wide variety of people from all over the world. There certainly is a really cool vibe inside the club. The elevator operator was super funny, and gave us some suggestions on how to have a really good experience. Overall, the dancing was good, the bar was crowded, but the drinks were good, and the view is amazing. I didn't get a chance to experience the hot tub, but I've heard its also awesome, but crowded as well.
A alive yet joyful place

The place has a really good view of Manhattan. Although the drinks are not that classy, I couldn't help myself to enjoy everything at the heaven-like atmosphere place. The design of the swimming pool is really fantastic, which makes this place even more worth going. What worth mention is the music there is stylish and unique, which much helped the atmosphere. The decorations and services are all decent. Most importantly, people who come here are happy and having infinite fun.
The Chaud place of NYC: Le Bain.

Wether it is 70 or 30 degrees outside, the average line of about ten to fifteen people awaits you at the corner of Washington Street. As you patiently wait on the line to experience Le Bain, you can already feel the diverse environment just from ease dropping onto people conversations, which could be in French, German, Japanese or Spanish. As you enter the dark hallway, you have the option to check in your coat or can head straight onto the elevator. The elevator door closes and plunges its way to the top floor. As the destination nears, the music gets louder and louder. Finally, the reverse side of the elevator door opens, and you can experience New York City overlooking Hudson River and New Jersey from the glass windows that surrounds the venue. If the weather is hot enough, you can make your way to indoor jacuzzi, while the DJ entertains you with some electro/trance music. On the other hand, you can make your way to the roof and enjoy a lovely sunset while comfortably sitting on the water beds. This definitely one of the hottest places to be if you are looking to dance away into the night.
A taste of Europe by the Hudson

This diverse rooftop lounge has some of the best indie DJs, tasty cocktails, beautiful views, and even a pool for your enjoyment. You'll hear all types of languages ranging from French and German to Spanish and Japanese. A pretty great sophisticated crowd with great beats you can hear as you make your way up the elevator to the dance floor from the entrance. The unisex bathrooms are always clean, the rooftop allows for a breath of fresh air or a quick smoke, & if you're lucky you can get a steamy show from one of the windows of the Standard Hotel as you wait in line.

a swimming pool in the middle of the club what more do i need than young beautiful drunk women deciding that there hot and want to go swimming. Not to mention the unisex bathrooms greatest place to piss
LOVE!

I can't stress enough how much I love this place. There are just so many things going on that I feel its impossible not to have a good night. First of all it's location in the glitzy standard hotel gives it that allure that all of the Standard endeavors exude. On top of that the location right on the river has a gorgeous view of downtown Manhattan which escapes you at no point...not even when you're peeing in their completely voyeuristic toilets. And speaking of voyeurism there's always a few brave souls splashing around drunkenly in the indoor jacuzzi. On top of that, literally, because the club isn't cool enough, there's also the rooftop which has AstroTurf carpeting and pink day beds making you feel like you're in someone's yard, if that someone was super awesome and had a yard on top of the Standard Hotel. Definitely check this out if you have the chance!
My second home.

I basically lived here this past summer... Le Bain always has a steady flow of great up and coming DJs. The roof bar is the absolute best as you can gaze out over NYC while sipping the very best drink they serve -- the frozen grapefruit gimlet. I crave them constantly. The door is pretty tight, but be courteous to the doorman and he'll usually let you in. Be sure to hop in the hot tub also! But leave your belongings with someone as I've had friends who have been left in their underwear...
Lights-Out

Been here several times and it never disappoints. While most people visit for the hot-tub and the exclusivity factor, head to the roof. There is nothing like overlooking the city from the Roof bar as the sun is coming up. Hint: do not stare. Between celebrities and Boom, Boom, Room activities occurring - just be cool. There are no rules here. Lights, fog and pulsing beats add to the mystic atmosphere. Anything is possible if you stick it out late enough. Downside - drink prices. Upside - they get you buzzed.
Gay Night!
Alicia B. Nov 3, 2012
We came here on a Thursday-- gay night-- during the summer, and even THEN the door was super tight. Get there early if you don't want to stand outside half the night. When you finally do get in, you'll go up an elevator and into the main bar-- the prices are outrageous, but it's the Meatpacking District, so you knew better than to pay for drinks here. Off to the right is a hot tub that makes the whole room smell like chlorine. I suggest going upstairs to the rooftop bar. The view is fantastic, and if there's a seat, it's a nice, chill alternative to the craziness downstairs. The last time I came, Adam Lambert was sitting one table over from us. So the crowd is very eclectic and despite all the gimmicks, you still feel like you're in the chic place to be. Love it.

The hotub at this club takes center stage. The spectacular views come second. I went here for last year's fourth of july party and expected to wait in a ridiculously long line. I arrived at peak time, around 12:30am, and was inside within 30 minutes. This is a rooftop club, so it's best during the warmer months. However, the lower level is completely indoors. Don't fear if you forgot your swimsuit. There's a vending machine that dispenses them. Towels are provided. It's mostly electronic/house music. Didn't see a single person who wasn't dancing or having a blast. The upper level is open air and has a Parisian courtyard feel. The music is much lower and it's a better spot to have a conversation and mingle. There's also a little creperie up here if you get hungry. Bottom line: a unique club with good energy
