With a sleek contemporary image, the Mandarin Oriental is one of the most stylish and exclusive resorts on the Las Vegas Strip. The high-rise is free of casino noise and carries the highest standards of service throughout each and every one of its amenities. Of course, everything is even more enjoyable with a drink in hand. Check out a few of these recommendations for the hotel's hot spots.

This upscale restaurant specializes in French gastronomy and includes an indulgent wine program of more than 1,700 selections. Choose a bottle of Kings Row by Checkerboard Vineyards in Napa, well worth the $250 price tag.
Known for its stellar mixology program, Mandarin Bar has an impressive lineup of cocktails. However, you may want to shift focus to the premium spirits selection. The bar currently offers "A Taste of Eternity" — four pourings of Hardy Cognac, including the rare Hardy Noces d'Albatre, aged a minimum of 75 years. At a price of $130, the flight is worth every penny.
This intimate and comfortable restaurant carries a wide variety of Asian-inspired cuisine, from gourmet bento boxes to dumplings and sushi. Ask for the Cucumber Mint Margarita, which provides the perfect balance of bite and sweetness to complement any dish.
Located in the lobby on the 23rd floor, the lounge offers some of the finest teas in the world, proving to be a unique alternative to those looking to avoid alcoholic beverages. Order a cup of the loose leaf orange blend (custom picked for the Mandarin Oriental) and enjoy the spectacular views of Las Vegas through floor-to-ceiling windows.
