The Rooftop at The Standard, Downtown LA Restaurant Review

: When it opened in 2005, The Rooftop bar ignited the downtown nightlife scene, and although there is a lot more competition now, it's still a hotspot. It’s got potent cocktails, such as a pineapple margarita with tequila, orange liqueur, lime and pineapple juice. A killer view brings a crowd that is young, hip and beautiful. Water beds covered by cherry-red, pod-like cabanas encircle the pool --- the perfect ambience for the often-wild scene. While food is probably not on most people’s minds, there is a full menu. Nibbles include plantain chips with guacamole, grilled bacon-wrapped shrimp in an oregano vinaigrette, and crispy popcorn oysters served with spicy aïoli. Larger dishes come in the likes of pot roast sliders topped with blue cheese fondue, an ahi club salad, and a hearty burger with ground beef and short rib meat.
