The always luxurious Mandarin Oriental Hotel held it's annual holiday soiree on Wednesday, December 15th, 2010 in the hotel's MObar. The party took place on the night before I headed to Texas for the holidays. I can't think of a better place or event to close out my amazing first year in NYC. The theme of the night was imbibe and be merry and that is exactly what guests did as they noshed on the Mandarin Oriental's amazing food and sipped on delicious holiday themed cocktails.

The Mandarin Oriental's Mobar is the perfect setting for an intimate party. Guest can feel cozy without feeling crowded and the room makes it easy to mix and mingle. Let's take a look at some of the fabulous people who stopped by to spread some holiday cheer.

I had a wonderful time at the Mandarin Oriental's (or as I like to call it the Mandy) annual holiday soiree. You never know who you will see or bump into each time you visit the Mandarin Oriental. Combine that with the view of Central Park and the city, along with delicious food and cocktails and you have one of the most magical places in New York City!
