One wouldn’t suspect that among the casinos, restaurants, and hotels that line Las Vegas Boulevard is a hidden jackpot. When planning a visit to Las Vegas, Nevada, booking a reservation for afternoon tea may not be the first thing that comes to mind, but a trip to the Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas could provide a respite from the casino and party atmosphere that has made Sin City a hot spot.
At this venue, tea comes with delectable bites and a varietal selection of tea blends in a smoke-free, non-gaming environment. Not only that, but patrons enjoy a quasi-panoramic display. “Being able to sit in an amazing lounge with an amazing view, it is really unique,” says Executive Chef David Werly. Sitting in the vibrant and colorful Tea Lounge on the 23rd floor of the luxury hotel, guests enjoying tea look out floor-to-ceiling windows onto the famous Las Vegas strip.
