Mix Lounge, located on the 64th floor atop THEhotel at Mandalay Bay, offers guests stunning 360-degree views of the Strip and the Vegas valley from its floor-to-ceiling windows.
The view is so great that the builders made sure it could seen from everywhere in the club -- even from the restrooms, which are some of the most unusual in town. Individual stalls have their own floor-to-ceiling windows as well.
The intimate 298-capacity lounge features wall-to-wall black leather décor with red lighting. The place to be, however, is outside on the balcony. Low lounges and tables allow guests to sit back, relax and take in an amazing view of the Strip. You'll actually be looking down at the Luxor light next door.
If you want to enjoy the night air, get there early. The outdoor lounges on the patio are reserved for bottle service patrons after 10:30 p.m., although a small area still is available for standing outside.
Also facing the Strip are indoor tables, which also are available to bottle service customers only. Unlike many other clubs in town, Mix offers a few places to sit for those who are not indulging in bottle service, including a small, circular bar tucked in one of the corners. Black leather ottomans along the back side of the room provide a comfortable place to lean while gazing out the windows.
For the VIPs, a stairway leads to a private, hidden area located above the larger main bar.
Mix serves a light food menu until 11 p.m., and drinks average $10-$12. If you're looking for a more substantial meal, the lounge is located adjacent to Mix restaurant, a 70-table restaurant featuring a $500,000, 13,000-glass bulb chandelier.
