We stumbled upon the foundation room whilst wondering around the lobby in Mandalay Bay. It was happy hour and we were offered free entry to the rooftop bar. It seemed we had nothing to lose so why not. So glad we went - the view from the bar is fantastic, you can see right down the strip. The outdoor balcony is heated so it can be enjoyed even on a cooler evening. The happy hour was very good value - after paying $12 for a can of Coors at another venue it was a pleasant surprise to pay only $5 for wine or vodka cocktails. Really great experience, would recommend going before 8pm if possible as it does get very busy after that.

So we are 50+ years old and got "invited" to check this place out after our Michael Jackson One show. Free admittance and one glass of champagne. We wanted to see the view, so we went.

Well, at that time of night (around midnight?), it's not for us. Music pounding, people everywhere, the terrace with the view full of smokers. Definitely not our scene.

I didn't see anything really unique there. They had bottle service, VIP areas and even a club within a club. Whatever - I hope you young folks enjoy!

This was our second visit and was on a Friday... what a let down!!! “You can’t stand there...” “you can’t stand there...” “you can’t block the door,” “you can’t stand in the corridor...” no cocktails, no seats, no room and no fun! Disappointing :(

On arrival the had a great vibe with a bar to wait in which had the most spectacular views on the strip. The whole place was very beautifully done and were looking forward to great food.
After reviewing the menu for 10 minutes deciding on our dishes we were told they were out of two of the main steak dishes due to over demand!
The food arrived without the sides and one steak was under cooked and returned with the sides then arriving.
Food was great when it was all there but services was a little less than perfect and it wasn’t even busy!
Recommend the bar and views though. !!!

We made a last minute decision to go to the Foundation Room before we went to see a show in Mandalay Bay.
It was a week night and it was very quite when we went up so finding a seat, moving around and getting a drink was very easy.
The vibe was good and so was the music, but the best bit about this place is the view outside. It's AMAZING! You can see the whole strip all lit up and it's definitely a wow moment. Although it does get pretty busy out here as the night goes on.

The drinks menu was good, we ordered a cocktail which was I guess reasonably priced for the venue, although very small. I'm pretty sure 3/4 of the cocktail was missing, maybe it evaporated in the Las Vegas warmth? Who knows. But it would have been nice to have a fuller glass for the price we paid.
This aside, we had a good time here. I was a little worried about attire for this place as had read a few different reviews about people and their clothing.
I went for jeans and a 'nice' top and this was fine, there were people in super casual clothes so I think on a weeknight if you plan to go earlier you can wear whatever. I would feel out of place the later it got though so would dress a little more formally.
