We think they should stop and go get some lunch. Taken by a photographer we are loving right now, Leeta Harding.
In our relentless quest to feed you with good music, we’re back to remind about our January playlist, a whole new set of songs to download for free from our website. Look to the right hand side of this webpage (see the Standard music widget?)… and behold 40 free tracks to download this month. Each of the Standard Hotels (New York, Miami, and Los Angeles) have their own special mix of songs proving a specific vibe for each hotel.
Our New York playlist this month features the Passion Pitt’s classic tune “Sleepyhead” except this one is “LeChev’s remix”, a joyful track deserving of your iPod. Who doesn’t love a good remix?
Visit our music widget which is also placed on our Music Page of the Standard Culture site.
Mark your calendars. Joey Arias is performing on Monday in New York city, at Le Poisson Rouge. His previous run (last October) at the Abron’s Art Center was fully sold out and a raging success. This time, Joey will be performing a few of his classic tunes (one performance only) with that show stopping-voice that melts your heart.
Musical direction is by Ben Allison, with a band comprised of some of the finest jazz musicians in New York. The show is presented by Earl Dax. The New York Times says Joey “channels Billie Holiday with eerie precision”. If you’ve never seen Joey perform, get yourself to this intimate performance.
Monday, January 10, 2011. Performance is at 6:30 pm.
Tickets are $35. Reserve your seats. Purchase here.
(Forget New York’s Ball Drop. The Standard has a Party in Every City)
If you are still undecided on the “big night” to ring in 2011, we’d like to remind you of all the festivities occurring at each of our hotels in New York, Los Angeles, and Miami.
• The Standard New York is hosting a special evening with the iconic Marianne Faithfull performing at the top of the Standard New York. For details and to reserve, go toMarianne Faithfull reservations page.
• The Standard Hollywood celebrates with a performance by Raveonettes and Autolux with DJ Georgie Goodtimes. For details and to reserve, go to Standard Hollywood New Years event.
• The Standard Downtown LA poses a choice between 2 parties. Is it the Rooftop with Tanner Ross + Sergio Santos (of Soul Clap/Culprit/No. 19, Boston)? Or is it the Lobby with cowboy boots and Cashback, a cover band paying tribute to June Carter and Johnny Cash? Either way, reserve your tickets at New Years Eve Standard Downtown LA.
• The Standard Miami is just the perfect place for some detoxing at The Standard Spa with BluePrintCleanse. On Friday, December 31st, there will be a New Year of mystical sorts. Consider it a “new beginnings” with a guided meditation and visualization session inspiring your intentions to manifest for the New Year, set to the sounds of Fiorella Podesta. $30 includes indoor baths. For more questions, go to Standard Miami Facebook.
Ok. So there you have it, a New Years plan for all types of moods. Choose wisely, and have yourself a proper closing to what has been a very exciting 2010 — an end to the first decade of the millennium. We need a drink!

If you want to mess with the egg drink during holidays, you’ll need a real mixologist to master the tricky genre. But when it all comes together, a proper cocktail from this family of drinks is a cozy beacon of light during a cold winter. Here are a few egg-based cocktail tips and recipes to begin whipping up in the kitchen right now (courtesy of the mixmasters at Details Magazine). Our favorite is the one called “The Notorious F.L.I.P.”
Mark your calendar this Sunday for another night of Nouveau York hosted by Neil Aline and Jerome Viger-Kohler. This week, we got two great bands and DJ’s playing — the Glass and Punches.
This Sunday Dec 19th, NOUVEAU YORK at Le Bain, The Standard New York. 9pm-2am. Please note that we’ll open the doors at 9pm for the Winter, starting this Sunday. If you want to party, click “attending” at Facebook Nouveau York.
Door policy is to the doorman’s discretion and capacity limitations.
(Marianne Faithfull is Playing The Standard New York for New Years)
In our series of Tumblr’s we love, here is a batch of blogs committed to the love of music, counterculture, or rock bohemia. Each are different but at some point, we’ve seen a Marianne Faithfull plug somewhere on it.
With a blog that opens with the phrase, “Fuck Yeah Marianne Faithfull”, this blogger writes, “I’m a girl in my early 20s who got into Marianne first and foremost through her amazing music.” She then goes on to post her collection of Marianne pics throughout the years. Read more on Faithfull Forever Tumblr
Another writer, Moira, who is 18. just loves “pre-code bad girls”, British invasion bands, Alice White, old movies, and bohemia. P.S. She’s also shameless Keith Richards fangirl. You can read hers at The Good Bad Girl Tumblr
Another Tumblr just revolves around classic music icons. Her tagline reads, “Without music, life would be a mistake.” -Friedrich Nietzsche. Read Audio Soup Tumblr
Marianne will be performing at The Standard New York for New Years. To reserve your tickets as soon as possible for the big bash ushering you into 2011 with the woman herself, read more here.

(Secret Travel Item: The “Dont-Leave-Home-Without” Lucky Paint Pants by Aiko)
Lady Aiko is an artist born from the streets. We wrote about her earlier in the year when she first hit up our walls inside Le Bain stairwells at The Standard New York. During Art Basel, we inquired about her one secret travel item. Her answer? A lucky pair of “paint pants”. Aiko has never traveled without them since she first ever started making art. For some mystical reason, the magic pants serve as a constant reminder to make her feel like she did when she first started painting.
