New Hospitality Venue Plans for ARIA Revealed

Hospitality development and management company, The Light Group, will unveil four new concepts at the ARIA Resort & Casino at CityCenter upon its opening in December. The new lineup consists of a nightclub, a lounge, a restaurant and a pool lounge.

Expanding its portfolio of dining establishments, The Light Group will unveil Union Restaurant & Lounge, serving a dinner menu featuring contemporary American cuisine by Executive Chef Brian Massie. At Union, diners will enjoy the action and panoramic views of the casino around them while becoming the center of attention to gamblers looking on.

The Deuce Lounge, located off the main casino floor, will fuse the elements of an upscale lounge with high-limit gaming, creating an intimate nightlife experience. The space will invite its guests to try their luck on the numerous blackjack tables around the room while enjoying cocktails from an inventive menu, creating an alternative gambling scene to that of the bustling casino floor. The lounge also will feature a number of HD flat screen TVs for guests to watch evening sporting events while enjoying hors d'oeuvres from Union's kitchen.

Haze Nightclub will be a colossal space designed by award-winning interior design firm, ICRAVE, and will feature large hanging props over the entryway that will draw guests to a grand staircase transporting them to the mezzanine level where they will enjoy a bird's-eye view of the action below. The main dance floor will peer up at a wall of interactive projection screens stretching one hundred feet across on a performance structure where impromptu acts by world-renowned artists will regularly take place.

Completing the portfolio will be Liquid, the resort's adult-only pool playground and outdoor refuge, where guests will enjoy poolside pampering and daytime indulgence. Offering a combination of elements that allow guests to enjoy Vegas' high-energy lifestyle during the day, Liquid's atmosphere and vibe is conceptualized to offer the ultimate experience under the Vegas sun. Opening in spring 2010, the alfresco utopia, designed by Graft Lab, will feature 17 cabanas providing seclusion, within an already exclusive setting, as guests enjoy the latest in high-tech amenities. Numerous dipping pools, featuring underwater speakers, will dominate the space while visitors mingle and dance to electrifying beats spun by world-class DJs. Multiple bars will complement personalized chaise lounge and daybed service, also including a mouthwatering food menu.
