As the name suggests, the bar is located on the rooftop of the Standard Hotel in Downtown LA. After a short elevator ride we found ourselves on the roof, and the views in front of us were most impressive. The roof is a spacious area, with plenty of seating options. However, we would advise arriving early as we still struggled to find a table. There is a good range of cocktails, and although they are simple by design, they are well executed and enjoyable. As the sun sets, the DJ steps up and starts working the tables. It's a cool place to have some pre dinner cocktails.

First on our agenda were cocktails, we ordered a 'Sabrosa', and watched as the bartender created this with Mexcal, Mango, Lime Juice, and Simple Syrup. It was a smooth and sweet cocktail. My partner sampled the 'Standard Mojito' with Rum, Simple Syrup, Lime Juice, Sparkling Water and a touch of Mint. An incredibly refreshing drink, with a pleasant minty aftertaste.

"The views were most impressive."

Carrying on from the menu we ordered a sparkling, fresh cocktail called 'French 77', which was mixed with Sparkling Wine, Elderflower Liqueur, and a squeeze of Fresh Lemon Juice. Along with a 'Bicycletee Rouge', which contained Rose, Elderflower Liqueur, and Sparkling water.

To finish off, we opted for a 'Moscow Mule', a tasty cocktail with Vodka, Lime Juice and Ginger Beer. And, a 'Pomelo', which contained a blend of Gin, Elderflower Liqueur, Grapefruit Juice, and a Splash of Champagne. I was very impressed with the Pomelo, and it was tempting to have another to say the least.

LA is renowned for its hip bar scene and the Rooftop at the Standard is one to considor. We had a great time and are happy to recommend this bar as a place that will not disappoint.
