Elevated Status: Takami Sushi and Robata and Elevate Lounge

Love lift us up where we belong. Where the eagles cry, on a mountain high.
Or, at the very least, on the 21st floor.
Take the elevator to Takami Sushi and Robata and Elevate Lounge, where indoor/outdoor 360-degree views let you spy on The Standard, Pegasus Lofts, and the rest of Downtown.
The Takami side (taking reservations for Saturday and beyond) gives you kimono-covered walls, an orange leather sushi bar, a peek-a-boo wine and sake room, and Katsu-Ya and SHU vet chef Kenny Yamada’s innovative bites like Pop Art Crab and shishito peppers.
For Lotus Blossom and Lychee Mojito cocktails, cross the hall to Elevate Lounge (open now). If the mosaic bars are packed, duck into the VIP lounges (with individual mini dance floors) or hit the patio.
The sky-high duo is sure to stick in your memory for a long time to come.
Not unlike a certain Joe Cocker/Jennifer Warnes duet we know.
