This queer-friendly hotel bar at The Standard East Village hosts art events, late-night DJ sets and drag shows a few times a week. On a random Wednesday night, you might run into your roommate’s friend who self-identifies as a “creative” and manages an online store for essential oils. Everything clashes here, but in a good way - specifically the giant disco ball, neon lighting, and tacky cow-print diner booths.
