It was steamy and chic at last night's opening hosted by Andre Balazs and Andre Saraiva, of Le Bain, the all-black bar/mini swimming pool and AstroTurfed roof top of The Standard Hotel. Like a yin-yang to the swankier, fancier Boom Boom Room (right next door) Le Bain is young and fun and feels like a hipster-packed Euro disco. There were so many hot boys and girls, gay and straight, it was like a casting call for chic cuties. If Helmut Newton were alive, he'd be shooting the naked chicks splashing in the pool every night. Who did I not see last night is the question. The list: James Franco, Terence Koh, Justin Theroux (toting his camera), Terry Richardson, Rachel Zoe, Tom Sachs, Dan Colen, Genevieve Jones, Bonnie Morrison, Patrick McMullan, Liam McMullan, Eugenia Gonzalez Ruiz-Olloqui, Lorenzo Martone, Serenah Nikkhah, Winston Lapham and Hayley Bloomingdale, Becka Diamond, Yale Breslin, Alessandra Balazs, Waris Ahluwalia, Annabelle Dexter-Jones,Tara Subkoff, Darrell Hartman and Hannah Bronfman. And that's just off the top of my slightly tired head. Alexandra Richards DJ-ed and Le Bain Up (the roof top) will be open every day from 12pm-12am (serving sandwiches and drinks) and the divine disco downstairs will stay open until 4am. The Standard NYC has re-booted nightlife once again. Want to see who looked hot last night? Check out this gorgeous black and white photo gallery by the multi-talented, super-sexy Saraiva. Cheers!
