One of the best things about Las Vegas is there are so many fantastic “little” spots that you don’t always hear about among all the usual suspects that can be found on The Strip. Take the Mandarin Bar at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, which offers one of the best views of the city, along with some exceptionally crafted cocktails, but doesn’t get nearly the amount of mentions as say, The Stratosphere or High Roller do. Featuring three walls of floor-to-ceiling windows, with a sleek and sophisticated vibe running throughout, the Mandarin Bar is the ideal spot for those in-the-know to bring a date without having to worry about an influx of tourists chasing the latest trends.
When you arrive at the Mandarin Bar, which sits on top of the 23rd floor of the Mandarin Oriental, you are instantly enveloped in the chic ambiance and will be left awe-struck by the all-encompassing views. The staff of well-trained Mixologists serve up handcrafted signature cocktails like The Mandarin Martini, Pama-Lychee and the popular, Berry Bellini. Looking for the perfect drink to beat the summer heat? The Mandarin Bar’s Cucumber and Cilantro Margarita makes for a very refreshing way to relax. They also offer some very tasty small bites, where we recommend trying the Cool BBQ roll, which fuses an avocado roll with tuna poka, oishi nori popcorn and grapefruit sorbet. Their Mandarin bar sliders are also scrumptious and the vanilla cream-filled doughnut holes make for the perfect dessert when you’re yearning for something sweet to pair with your drinks.
While the Mandarin Bar might not be the flashiest or newest spot on The Strip, their exceptional service, creative cocktails, plus eclectic decor, makes you feel like you’re in on a great secret. For those that are willing to dig deeper during their Las Vegas stay, we promise that the payoff is among the best in the city.
