The Library Lounge

Thursday to Saturday: 7am-2am
Nestled within our brutalist walls is in fact a library but not one you might expect. Once home to the Camden Council Library, the space has been transformed into equal parts book-filled haven and cosy lounge where you can get stuck into books from categories including order and chaos, science and religion or, one of our favourites, adult relationships.
Sounds Studio & Sometimes Radio
The Sounds Studio is the beating heart of The Standard, London’s musical programming set within the ground floor’s Library Lounge and the home to our lockdown project, Sometimes Radio. A recording booth, a performance pod, a living magazine – the Sounds Studio is a broadcast recording venue that with the open of a window can act as a public stage to hotel guests and beyond. Listen to fresh mixes, panel discussions and archive sessions from the Library Lounge below at Sometimes Radio.
