If you’re going to go to all the trouble of dressing like James Bond on New Year’s Eve, it may as well be at a place where James Bond would go. And 007 wouldn’t be caught dead crammed into a sweaty dance club. Mandarin Bar, however, is the perfect spot for a tux-wielding gentleman to drink martinis and woo ladies while at the same time taking advantage of the absolute best view in the city. At 23 stories up and center-Strip, it’s also the best spot to see fireworks short of riding a rocket into the sky, Wile E. Coyote-style.
