There's a reason we keep calling it a best-kept secret.
The standard dinner date is a classic, but it's a little played out.
The Mandarin Oriental is such a breath of civility in the midst of the chaos of the Strip, and by god, is there anything more civilized than a full tea service?
Head to the Tea Lounge on the 23rd floor, with one of the best views of the Las Vegas Strip, for their Classic English Afternoon Tea served daily with seatings around 12pm, 2pm, and 4pm, an experience like no other around for .
The folks who work here and those who hang out almost daily are super friendly, so taste some new beers (or wines) and plan on making new friends together in a low-pressure, casual, fun evening here. If so, start pulling out the big romance guns, and start with a trip to the top of the Eifel Tower inside Paris Las Vegas, a half-scale replica of the real deal, then have dinner at the Eifel Tower Restaurant, with a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows offering an unparalleled view of the Bellagio fountains.Atomic Liquors is the oldest freestanding bar in Las Vegas and a beloved local dive, as well as a beloved local beer bar (still one of the best in the city).Just last year they expanded their offerings with the Kitchen at Atomic, a separate full-service restaurant that shares the same property and outdoor patio as its namesake.Not that you shouldn't do the classic dinner date (keep reading for proof we are very much fans of this), but sitting across the table staring at each other for an unknown stretch of time can be nerve-wracking for anyone -- even someone you've seen a few times but are still trying to impress.Instead, try something a little different with Lip Smacking Foodie Tours.
