The Garden

at The Standard East Village

25 Cooper Square

The Garden at Standard – a 21-story hotel in New York’s East Village – offers what it calls a “dreamscape” environment, offering guests a unique experiential setting in one of New York’s most artistic neighborhoods. The Garden is a little pocket of nature located close to the Cooper Square, not far from SoHo, Washington Square, and Gramercy Park. 

Right from the moment you walk into The Standard in East Village, you notice the difference. Unlike Standard Hotels in other locations, the boutique venue reflects the eccentricities of the area. Before you enter the central hotel tower, you walk through an old-style New York tenement. 

The Garden is a quiet little corner of the hotel, tucked away at street level behind an old enclosing wall. There are topiaries all around, designed by Opiary Studio, that create a visual feast for the eyes, and plenty of shaded seating areas to enjoy a spot of food or drink. If you love boule, then there’s also a graveled area where you can practice your skills in true French style. 

The Garden offers fresh popsicles for those who want to cool down after a day of marching through New York’s baking hot streets, as well as a whimsical take on traditional English afternoon tea. You can also get a cheese board selection accompanied by cured meats and chutneys for those wanting something a little more substantial. Would you like to cool off with a popsicle on a hot summer’s day in a relaxed environment?
