Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas Brings 1930s Shanghai Nightlife To Mandarin Bar

Hong Kong, 21 August 2013 – High above the Las Vegas Strip, Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas transports Mandarin Bar guests to the decadence of 1930s Shanghai for the new weekly party, Shanghai Nights. Replicating the popular city when it was known as the “Vegas of Asia,” the Shanghai-inspired tastes, cocktails and atmosphere will transform the Mandarin Bar every Tuesday night starting September 10.

Mandarin Bar’s Shanghai Nights will mirror an Asian-style speakeasy with era décor including adorning Oriental lanterns, dramatic red hue lighting, intimate seating and other elaborate touches. While appreciating Mandarin Bar’s striking views from the 23rd floor, guests also will enjoy the sounds of live jazz and contemporary music from the Shaun DeGraff Trio.

“Just as Shanghai developed a high-flying social scene in the 30s, Mandarin Bar becomes the place to see and be seen every Tuesday night,” said Priscilla Young, the new Manager of Mandarin Bar. Young previously was the Beverage Manager and Mixologist at Mandarin Oriental, San Francisco.

In addition, Ms. Young and Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas’ Executive Chef, David Werly, have created special menus of small bites and cocktails reminiscent of the glamorous Shanghai scene. The specialty drinks echo past times including the Barrel down the Bund where gin is the star in this spirituous cocktail and the French Concession which has a European feel combined with Chinese flavors to showcase both cultures blending together post-war. On the menu, Chef provides indulgent sushi including the Rice Pepper Roll with Alaskan King Crab and Jelly Fish as well as a Shanghai Dim Sum selection.

Mandarin Bar opens at 5 p.m.; with live music frin 6-10 p.m. Guests must be 21 years of age. For additional information or to make a table reservation, please call (888) 881-9367.
