Perched high atop the roof of the Standard Hotel in the Meat Packing district, Le Bain offers party goers fantastic views, and a hip downtown crowd. In the summer, Le Bain features an indoor hot tub (complete with vending machines in the bathroom selling $80 bathing suits) and one of the most spacious rooftops in NYC nightlife (with a crepe stand, in case you get hungry.) Le Bain is also quite large by NYC standards- consequently it is usually not too difficult to gain entry (as long as you show up early). Le Bain is not a super exclusive venue. Groups of evenly mix girls / guys stand a good chance of getting in- as a result there is usually a long line with waits of up to 20 or 30 minutes- or more.
The crowd at Le bain is comprised primarily of scenesters and hip- downtown creative types. Corporate types and upscale types often frequent the venue as well, but most of the time must commit to spend a minimum at the bar. The venue is also a favorite of fashionable models and upscale sophisticated types who come from The Boom Boom Room. which is across the hall.
