Peppermill is just a restaurant? That is cutting out at least half the fun...the tacky BAR!!!

btw-If people want to add to their OWN posts it would be great if you could edit your existing post so we have all the info as tightly as possible and not one hundred posts from say three members. It makes it easier to print for traveling. Thanks, keep adding them!!

Rum Jungle.

Located inside the elegant and tropical inspired, Mandalay Bay Casino, this bar and restaurant is a feast for the eyes: fire walls, waterfall walls, ceiling art which seems to descend from the heavens, glowing bar tops, enourmous drums to assist in going tribal, and, of course - being Vegas, go-go dancers who perform above the huge bar area.

I'll be in Vegas next week, arriving Sunday night and leaving Wednesday night. I'm there for work, so my time will be limited. What should I see?

What is the best buffet?

What is the most tiki place that is left there?

I already have Mandalay Bay and Peppermill on my list. What's your best recommenation for someone with limited time on a brief stay?

Aloha!

If I were on a short clock, I'd try to hit:

The Beauty Bar downtown and ask for Jay to make you a mojito - best in town. Seedy ambience, but that makes the mojito tastes even better.

Benihana's bar at the Hilton. Get one of the tables where the rain comes down around you near the pond. Great atmosphere, average drinks; but hey, they have alcohol in 'em!

The bar area at Mix restaurant at T.H.E. Hotel (part of Mandalay Bay). They have loungers on the balcony that overlook the whole strip. Nice view.

Eat at Nobu. Tip top eats.

It's cliche, but the Rum Jungle at mandalay has gooten better. The food is decent, and they have many many rums to swill. Try the Flor De Cana 4 year old light rum.

The pool bar at Hard Rock is OK if you need a slight tiki fix.

If I can think of any more right now, but I'll add more if I do.

Cheers!

Does one need to be a guest in order to visit the pool bar?

In regards to the Hard Rock Pool area, sometimes you can get in without staying and sometimes you can't. I'm not sure of their criteria but I've walked back to the pool area without anybody checking to see if I was staying there. Other times I've been stopped and asked to see my room key, which I didn't have, so they sent me away. The pool area is one of the best in Vegas. if your a Shag fan, the blackjack tables by the pool were designed by Shag.

Re: The Peppermill

On Halloween, their tacky bar had the nerve to ask my friends and I to remove our costumes before being served at the fire pool but the scantily-dressed "working girl" seated at the bar trolling for johns was fine.

I also found this...
