Relax and Party on L.A.'s Most Glamorous RooftopThe hottest roof in town is without a doubt at Downtown L.A.'s Standard. The hotel's top-level pool and bar is known for its panoramic views of the district, its fashionably dressed clientele, and its chic day-club and nightlife scene. Spend the day sipping a Pompelmo (champagne, Aperol, grapefruit liqueur, and soda) in a poolside lounge chair, then transition to moving to beats spun by live DJs on the rooftop's dance floor. The space also offers waterbed pods for daytime relaxing, fire pits for when the temperature drops in the evening, and a classic German biergarten, so there are plenty of reasons to stick around from opening at noon all the way till 2 a.m.
