BarFly's Review of The Standard
Certifiably cool hangout created, constructed, and manned by cutie-pie former Club 21 mainstay, Reed Lamb.
Hipping up the corrugated steel shack look is a totally far out mirrored mosaic bar, one of those wall-size photo backgrounds, some swell old booths, and an array of pinball.
Large smoking/drinking patio (alas, closes @ 10pm, nightly). Pool x1, Shuffleboard x1, Megatouch x1., TV x1, Pinball x 6
Open every day of the year!
M: Mono Monday - $3
T: Beam & Ginger - $3
W: Hamm's - $1
Th: Jameson - $4
F: Fireball - $3
Sa: Mimosas - $3
Su: Micros - $2

Love the Standard, Reed, the lovely staff and the PHOTOBOOTH!!! OK, I maintain the thing but it's great. One of the original chemical process black and white booths that gives you a real archival photos on minutes. They wont be around forever so get your drunk buddies in there and remember that moment somehow. It's in the video poker room near the bathrooms. Thanks and enjoy!
The Standard is a great chill hangout bar. the lighting and deco is very atmospheric. the bartenders are nice and pour you a stiff ass drink. the photo booth is fun and its a hidden tucked away bar for the peeps in the hood.
p.s. they also make a wonderful bloody mary!!
One of my new favorite bars for sure. Wish I had time to go more often. I think the ventilation issue has been fixed. If you sit in one of the booths, it's like being in a tornado vortex. Drinks are cheap and deep!! Staff is cool. The bumper shuffleboard table is ghetto as hell and needs to be re-poured badly (seems home-made), but it's all part of the package that is the Standard. Patio is perfect.
Really love the ambiance of the place especially when sitting outside and enjoying good drinks and the people. The service is good, but occasionally giving good tips will bring friendliness out of the staff. No wonder there!
This is a great bar and the people who work there are so friendly and helpful The food is good and cheap, the music is full of real treasures, and the decor is as good as it gets. Lots of vintage beer stuff. Mostly the way they treat you in this bar makes you want to come back. Being older, my husband and I come in earlier in the evening. I know that the owner recently put in something.....fan or ventilation or something that has fixed the smoke in the more busy hours.Also the drinks are never watery....always good old standards a and they are fairly priced...good buys. Lots of fun. Isabel
stopped in last night to see a friend who works here. they don't have PBR but plenty of cheap Hamms (on Wed they are a buck a pint). jukebox is nothing great but apparently it's a work in progress (and will improve). If you don't like what the bar has on the menu that night apparently they do not mind if you cross the street to Ole Ole and bring back some food from there
4$ for a well poured Jack-on-the-rocks? Um yes. I will be headed back here again. Other positives, cleanish bathrooms, pinball, and lots of space. I was also served quickly despite the large crowd at the bar. Impressive, most impressive.
I have never been to this bar. If Reed lamb is the owner, I have no question that this is the best bar that you will ever have the pleasure of enjoying!
I live a few blocks away--the standard is an ok spot--but seriously, is there anything different or special about it, Ms. Bad News? An alternative to what? The Red Flag? Beulahland? The Bonfire? All very similar spots. I miss the hungry tiger.
This is my kind of fucking place. It's like what Sammy's Daniel used to be..... for reals. They pour a hell of a Makers there.
Thanks Standard for opening up and giving us a great alternative. Can't wait for the summer time on that porch!
Bars opening up in this town is not a suprising thing. Finding a bar that you feel instantly at home in is another thing entirely. Somewhere between blue collar dive bar and swanky hipster joint, and its simply fun. Good mix of people, good service and food. I don't think they've been open all that long but the staff and management really seem to be on top of their game. OH! And a great non-downloadable-juke box which adds some unique flavor!
