How Exclusive Will the Standard’s New Roofdeck Be?

By

The Boom Boom Room (or the Top of the Standard, as it’s now officially called) may have been the most selective in a recent Post undercover operation in which nerds, “guidettes,” and suburban dads tried to get through the city’s tightest doors (well, not quite the tightest — SL, Kenmare, and the Jane weren’t attempted), but it’s a little-known fact that you can actually get into the Boom Boom anytime between 4 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., so long as you don’t wear flip-flops, sneakers, shorts, or caps (just walk in for a cocktail at the bar, or call anytime after noon for a table reservation). Only after 8:30 p.m. does the killjoy door-person show up.

We’re told the policy will be the same for the outdoor roofdeck, which by the looks of an UrbanDaddy slideshow will have pink waterbeds — but don’t try waltzing up there just yet. The Daddy says it opens tonight, but we’re told its public launch date is still TBD.
