MIX at Mandalay Bay - Drinks and a view?

  • 5
  • Share

There's a semi-fancy restaurant /bar at the top of Mandalay that has the best view in town. Or so I've heard. Haven't actually been, but I'd like to on an upcoming trip. I would like to check it out myself before I bring others. I don't want tp eat there., I'd really just like to have a drink at the bar and go out to the balcony and enjoy the view at about 6pm. I don't even want to sit down, just find a spot at the balcony railing out of the way of others. How do-able is that? Any tips?

  1. Very doable. It is not to be missed. I go every time. Try to go as the sun is going down... first, it is easy to get in, and second, it is by far the best view in vegas. Just go to the Bar side, get a drink and go out on the patio and enjoy. WONDERFUL.

    1. It is probably the best view in Vegas. It's cost you ten bucks at the entrnce, but it's worth it.

      1. If you go early enough there is no cover charge.

        1. If you go at sunset there is no cover charge, or at least I've never been charged one. Also a favorite spot of mine to take out-of-town friends. You get a great view, and if you go at sunset you get to see the strip light up gradually as night fall....beautiful!

          I was there a couple of weeks ago and I can recommend the pomegranate martini. Sure, it will set you back 16 bucks, but combined with the view its definitely worth it!

          btw, if you go, you MUST use the restrooms. If you walk into a stall, and ask yourself "what's so special about this?" walk out and find another stall...one or two are ordinary; the rest, well....just go and experience it for yourself! My favorite restroom in Las Vegas....:-)

            yes, yes, bathrooms are a must! (The ones in the China Grill are also quite cool... both were on Travel Channel's Ten Most Amazing Bathrooms or something like that, apparently)
