In enterprise manager select your server then databases then select the database and with right button you can delete.

Sorry... No UI for this operation in VS.NET Server Explorer. You have to use Enterprise Manager or somewhat pass a DROP TABLE statement to your database.

"DROP TABLE statement to your database."
