Last night, The Standard, New York and the MPDI hosted a cocktail party for all the great people that work in the neighborhood. The event took place at Le Bain, on the roof of the hotel. We were surrounded by amazing views, the sunset, and everyone from the neighborhood that makes the Meatpacking District such a great place to work and play. Le Bain is the perfect place to have in the neighborhood to relax after work and enjoy the sunset; we can't wait to go back.
Thank you to The Standard, New York and all their great staff for having us.
