Best downtown drinks + view?

Trying to impress some college kids who are going to be in town. Unfortunately, they're both 20 and won't be imbibing in public, but I did want to take them somewhere after a nice dinner to wow them with a view.

What are people's downtown favorites? Cityscape at the Hilton? The View Lounge at the Marriott? Top of the Mark? Starlight Lounge at the St. Francis Drake? I assume all the great views are atop hotels.

Fun non-alcoholic drinks and desserts as well as a cocktails and a wine list for the 21+ would be ideal, but really I'm just looking for the best night time view in town.

In Los Angeles, we sometimes to to the revolving restaurant atop the Bonaventure Hotel. Comfortable overstuffed boothes, huge drinks, ever-changing view, decent desserts, and you get to keep the souvenir cup. Cheesy, but fun.
