Here's what Peter Davis of Paper had to say about it.

Some places become a legend even before they exist. The Boom Boom Room is one of them. The much anticipated club on the 18th floor of The Standard Hotel has been getting all the buzz, hosting major parties during NY Fashion Week. Guests from Madonna & Jesus, Nacho Figueras, Jon Bon Jovi, Glenda Bailey to Jude Law and Courtney Love were spotted (and photographed by Patrick McMullan’s team) at the big opening bash in mid August hosted by the visionary and creator of The Standard and all that comes with, around and in it: Andre Balazs.

We, “ordinary” New Yorkers are now allowed to take in what the stars have already enjoyed: the lush couches, the ultimate shagadelic décor, and the striking 360 degrees city views through the double height glass windows. If vertigo is not an issue, step outside onto the glass-floor balcony.

We have checked it out before it opened (view above photo of the vista), and can’t wait to see it in action (later this week!). Comparisons to Studio 54 don’t hurt the hype around the hottest place to be right now. Much like all other Balazs’ initiatives, - the man just really has the Midas touch -, this one’s here to last.
