Great Views, Food and A Drug-Free Time at MIX
We've said it before and we'll say it again--we're not quite sure how THEhotel at Mandalay Bay is even part of the Mandalay Bay name. The boutique hotel within the hotel is a completely different experience from the blah Mandalay in every way from the rooms, to the spa to its nightlife.
We headed up to the top of THEhotel to the MIX lounge and restaurant over the weekend where we took in the amazing city views as we ate sumptuous food from renowned chef Alain Ducasse.
We aren't food writers here but this restaurant was hands-down one of the best meals we've eaten in a long time. Maybe even ever. The menu serves "contemporary and classic French and American dishes with global accents." Case in point, we had the gnocchi, a beef filet mignon and a fancy sort of mac and cheese dish.
Aside from wonderful food, MIX the restaurant has beautiful decor. A manager told us the design was to make you feel as if you were in a champagne glass, hence the "bubbles" hanging above.
While the restaurant is all white, MIX the lounge is all black but both places offer unbelievable sights of Las Vegas. Yes, even in the bathrooms stalls. And no, we didn't see any vomit in the stalls or drug overdoses. So it's safe to say this place has more than cleaned up their act.

It's like eating in a glass of bubbly!
Views of the strip. We can practically see the Thunder from Down Under dancing in Excalibur!
