4. Mandarin Oriental Tea Lounge

This calming refuge awaits on the 23rd floor of the luxe, gaming-free hotel. A pot of tea -- organic lychee green or jasmine Earl Grey -- is about $12 a person. There's no better place to look out over the Strip, particularly during the late-afternoon lull, and watch the lights come up. Afternoon tea 2:30 p.m.-5 p.m.
