Citysearch Editorial Review.
Across the hall from the Standard Hotel's infamously exclusive Boom Boom Room, this indoor/outdoor club (translation: "the bath") has both an indoor pool and a gorgeous rooftop bar. With floor to ceiling windows, a black-on-black color scheme and a sexy lounge, Le Bain would have a lot going for it even without the indoor pool, which is small but well-stocked thanks to the club's aesthetics-based door policy. Upstairs, the Vegas-style 18th floor rooftop bar, covered in lush (albeit artificial) grass and dotted with pink water beds, has pupil-popping views of the Hudson and Lower Manhattan. During the early evening, the rooftop bar is relatively easy to access; after 11pm, once the nightclub gets going, all bets are off--just try to be really attractive.
