Five Steps for the Ultimate Vegas Night Out at ARIA Resort & Casino

Las Vegas is a city that shines brightest after sunset. Famous for unparalleled nightlife and unforgettable entertainment, it’s a destination that never fails to deliver memorable experiences. But a great Vegas night out isn’t just about the magic of spontaneity. It’s about preparation and the thrill of anticipation. No hotel understands the night-out ritual better than ARIA Resort & Casino, where even the small details leave a big impression. 

Step One: Redefining the Check-in Experience

ARIA Resort & Casino's lobby showcases amazing themed decor

When you step through the doors and into the lobby at ARIA Resort & Casino, you’ll be awe-struck immediately. Seasonal themes Inspire larger-than-life decor—think a colorful flying dragon for Chinese New Year or a cascade of giant fall leaves suspended overhead—and a warm greeting at the front desk puts you in vacation mode instantly. Want to jump right into your vacation? Download the MGM Resorts mobile app and you can check-in and unlock your room seamlessly. Up in your room or luxurious Forbes Five-Star Sky Suite, clever technology pulls out all the stops as you enter for the first time: lights slowly turn on and your name appears on the TV screen. Welcome to ARIA. 

Step Two: Get Your Glam On

Get your hair done in ARIA's Forbes Five Star Salon

Nothing gets you in the headspace to go out like a meticulous grooming and styling session. Cue the ‘getting ready’ montage. Start by picking up a new outfit from Terrene. ARIA Resort & Casino’s on-site boutique sells everything from accessories and clothing to swimwear (ideal for that poolside recovery session the following day). Then, get a fresh trim at the barber shop or blow-out at The Salon

Step Three: Dinner That’s a Show

Be sure to order Carbone’s signature dish of Veal Parmesan

At Carbone, dinner is truly the show. ARIA Resort & Casino’s upscale Italian-American restaurant pays homage to the glamor of New York’s Little Italy in the 20th Century. Expect classic dishes like Chicken Scarpariello, Lobster Fra Diavolo and Octopus Pizzaiolo with a side of showmanship. Whether it’s mixing your ceasar salad, hand-pulling creamy mounds of mozzarella, or adding the final flourish to the restaurant’s signature Veal Parmesan, Carbone’s dishes are finished right at your table, providing a unique element of entertainment with your meal. 

Step Four: Hit the Town

Head to JEWEL nightclub for late night dancing

It’s hard to beat ARIA Resort & Casino when it comes to location. Not only is the hotel situated smack dab in the heart of The Strip, it’s also physically connected to some of the best entertainment venues in the city. On one side you’ll find the Bellagio with its iconic fountains and Cirque du Soleil’s “O” show. On the other, you’ll find Park MGM, home of the most sought-after Vegas residencies like Bruno Mars and Lady Gaga, and, the T-Mobile Arena, home of the Vegas Golden Knights and touring headliners. You can reach either from the hotel via connected walkways or the super-convenient ARIA Express Tram (a must if you’re wearing heels). If you’re having too much fun at ARIA and would rather stay onsite then venture over to JEWEL Nightclub, an elevated night club experience, complete with shimmering decor and world-famous DJs.

Step Five: The Wind-Down 

Bedtime at ARIA Resort & Casino is bliss

Reluctant for the night to end? Grab a nightcap at one of ARIA Resort & Casino’s atmospheric bars and lounges, including ALIBI Ultra Lounge or Lift Bar, which keeps the vibe going late night  with live music. When you do finally feel ready to recharge, ARIA's rooms make it easy with a goodnight button to power down your room with the touch of your finger. After a night of unparalleled amenities that make you feel right at home, you'll be ready to do it all over again tomorrow.

"This sculpture is called "Transmission" by artist Daniel Popper. Its a reminder that we are all rooted in love, unity and the divine. She stands a towering 28 feet tall and is located on Mojave Moon Ranch in Joshua Tree. The land is private property, so you can see it from the viewing platform off of Sunfair Road. And take it from me, it's best viewed at sunset."

Just 1 hour from Shanghai by train, Cherry Blossom Valley is a popular tourist destination, particularly in the spring when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom. The valley is named after the thousands of cherry blossom trees that cover the area and create a stunning display of pink and white flowers. The trees were originally planted in the 1980s by a group of Japanese experts who were invited to China to help with reforestation efforts. The best time to visit is typically in late March or early April. Get there early to beat the crowds!
