Set right in the center of Aria’s casino floor, this opulent, back-lit gem of a bar has a lovely, vintage vibe. I especially like the crystal decanters on display and the ornate wooden and faux mother-of-pearl accents (though don’t mistake the large, round objet d’art above the bar for a clock, this is on a casino floor, after all). More often than not, you’ll find tourists stopping in to re-up their Bud Light, but you’re missing out if you don’t put the bartenders through their paces. They’re expert at giving classic cocktails modern twists, and have a really fun “craft ice” program (you’ll see what I mean). At night, the curtains around the round space are drawn, creating a nice barrier between the bar and the buzz of the casino. It’s open 24 hours.
