The Standard Bar & Grll has stylish decor, with a nod to the old school Manhattan diner, lends the Standard an air of polished elegance. Adorning most of the walls are framed black and white photos, while the rest of the space is taken up by large TV screens that normally screen live sports. Leather banquette seating lines one side of the room, while a careful use of mirrors and soft lighting effects a soft glow and causes the bar area to gleam. Modern bar and restaurant for the 21st century, the interior design takes its lead and style from the original architecture of the building – circa 1850 – complemented with a playful art deco mood along the way.
