Planning a birthday outing- upscale lounge/bar

vvvindaloo | Jan 13, 2009 06:35 PM

Hi all, I am trying to hammer out the final details for an all-day birthday celebration later this week. Late night supper is set: dell'Anima (anyone who has any pointers for me regarding what to order, please respond). We need a cool spot to go for mid/late afternoon drinks, preferably on the west side, and I am close to convinced that we should choose one of the bars at the Mandarin Oriental. However, I heard that one or both of the bars at the hotel may be closed to non-guests. Can anyone tell me if this is true, and if so, which one (Lobby Lounge or MO Bar)?
Also, I understand that the view is phenomenal- but the cocktails should also be special. Please advise!
Thank you in advance
