Special evening for 8 in Las Vegas

I need some suggestions for a fabulous night in Vegas for 4 business partners and their wives. Staying at theHotel and won't have a car, so somewhere within walking or reasonable taxi distance would be preferred. Thinking of drinks at one place, a fabulous dinner somewhere else, and possibly ending with some sort of show/entertainment/bar. Age range from 35-60 and price doesn't seem to be an issue.

Just from scanning, Delmonico's sounds like a possible restaurant choice. I've also had a great tasting menu at Michael Mina's. Tasting menu with wine pairings would be a fun choice. Is the one at Joel Robuchon worth the price? Picasso sounds good too without being as outrageously priced. Price is no object but spending for the sake of spending isn't the object either.

Or is there a must-see show that could work in with dinner & drinks? Already have tickets for "Love" on another evening.

Any help would be appreciated!

  1. For drinks before dinner, go upstairs at theHotel to Mix. It's on top of the tower, and offers amazing views of the strip. There is also a balcony. The scene gets younger and hipper later, but before dinner you'll be fine. Not to be missed, especially since you're staying there. Mix is an Alain Ducasse restaurant. We ate there and enjoyed it, but there is better in town.

    If you want to stay in the hotel for dinner, Charlie Palmer Steak at the Four Seasons (which is within Mandalay Bay) is great. Great atmosphere, service and food. Other great restaurants at Mandalay include Aureole (another Charlie Palmer restaurant) and rm for seafood.

    Nob Hill at MGM is a Michael Mina restaurant, and it was awesome when I ate there in May. I'm sure others will give you suggestions as well. Good luck.

      1. One option you might consider is at Okada at the Wynn. They have an outside table for eight that sits out in the pond/waterfall outside the restaurant. It's very private and very different. The food at Okada is also outstanding, and is not limited to sushi. I think that would be a very memorable evening.
