Jazz at the Standard Hotel
Avalon Jazz Band performed at Manhattan’s edgy downtown Standard Hotel, located in the heart of the hip Meatpacking District. This lovely boutique hotel with a very modern deco twist on a retro 1960’s look has become a landmark of the New York City nightlife thanks to its famous penthouse discotheque and pool Le Bain. Avalon Jazz Band did not go for a swim this time, but rocketed up to the 18th floor, by way of the hotel’s “heaven and hell” animated elevator, to the oddly misnamed Boom Boom Room. We were all expecting an Austin Poweresque shag room full of orange velvet sofas, red vinyl and disco balls and were extremely surprised to arrive in one of the most stunningly beautiful bars in New York City. It most definitely has a 1960’s vibe, but of refined and tasteful kind, perfectly suited for Don Draper, an Old Fashioned and jazz of course. A hidden gem with a breathtaking view that we recommend to you all! Come listen to us on April 19th.
