Asiate, the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant inside Mandarin Oriental, New York, doesn’t have a bar, though just steps away you’ll find the very popular MObar. A hot spot for Midtown business types, MObar offers a lively and fashionable venue to grab a cocktail while you wait for a table at Asiate. Sip on a signature Mandarin Sunset — mixed with Absolut Mandarin, blood orange and lychee juices and Lillet Blanc — or a glass of champagne while taking in fantastic views of New York’s skyline. For something a bit more casual, try the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel’s Lobby Lounge for the same cocktail list and an even more breathtaking view. Both spots will gladly accommodate you while you wait for a table at Asiate to open.
