While hotelier Andre Balasz and company whoop it up at the various hotspots around The Standard New York, it seems he hasn't forgotten about the old Standard Hollywood, still holding it down on Sunset Boulevard.

To freshen things up a bit for the summer, the Standard Hollywood has installed some new art in the most mysterious, yet most visible of places: the Chicquarium. What's "the Chicquarium," you ask? It's the little glass room that's set up into the wall behind the reception desk in The Standard Hollywood's lobby. During peak hours, an attractive girl hired by The Standard will sit in there and completely ignore everything outside of her box. No waving at you or posing for pictures; she sits, sleeps, checks her Facebook or reads for your visual pleasure.

We've spoken with one of the Chicquarium girls before—check out that exclusive interview—and it looks like nothing much has changed. Aside from this new Noah Butkus "Slippery People" mural, that is.
