Smartly designed and seductively illuminated, Aria's massive design-savvy casino floor is CityCenter's sophisticated star money-grabber. Big spenders can access exclusive spaces such as the Spin high-limit slot-machine room and high-stakes blackjack and baccarat in the invitation-only Salon Privé. Aria's poker room hosts nightly tournaments.

If you're not a gambler nor staying at Aria's eponymous hotel, you might come by to check out works from the CityCenter Fine Art Collection, strut your stuff at Jewel nightclub or sample the clutch of chic but casual restaurants, including Julian Serrano's Tapas (off the hotel lobby), Chicago chef Shawn McClain's Sage, specializing in sustainable farm-to-table cuisine, and Five50 pizzeria.
