With three hotels, a world-class shopping mall and a massive collection of public art, there’s plenty to do at CityCenter.
• Take in the spas. Vdara Hotel and Spa, ARIA Resort & Casino and Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas, all have jaw-dropping spas. Vdara and ARIA’s spas are natural and modern oases, while Mandarin Oriental’s Five-Star sanctuary has a distinct Asian minimalism and sophistication.
• Tour the art. CityCenter has a massive collection of public art — stop by ARIA’s concierge for a map of the major pieces. Don’t miss works by Henry Moore and Claes Oldenburg in the public spaces, and head to the gallery in the Crystals shopping district to marvel at the works of world-famous glass master Dave Chihuly.
• See a show. Cirque du Soleil’s rock 'n' rolling Zarkana, opening at ARIA Resort & Casino on November 1 following a New York run, is an energetic and acrobatic rock opera. Splurge on tickets in the theater's Golden Circle or Banquette sections for sofa-style seating.
• Do some fine dining. From farm-to-table American cuisine at Sage to modern French at Twist by Pierre Gagnaire, CityCenter has dozens of restaurants to choose from. Make a reservation for dinner at Bar Masa or Michael Mina’s and then wander CityCenter to take in the artwork.
• Shop. No run-of-the-mill mall, CityCenter’s Crystals boasts styles straight from the runways. Check out boutiques from designers such as Balenciaga, Christian Dior and Marni — the innovative storefronts and high-tech displays make window-shopping worthwhile, too.
CityCenter encompasses phenomenal dining, premier shopping, indulgent nightlife, and a cutting-edge public art collection. ARIA Resort & Casino, located in the heart of CityCenter, offers a luxury experience filled with gaming, nightlife, dining, shopping and entertainment.
