Bars

Aria has several excellent lounges and bars. My favorite is the Lobby Bar, which is bright and airy with natural light and the perfect spot for your first cocktail on the Strip. ALIBI Ultra Lounge is worth checking out if you’re looking for an opulent atmosphere. They have premium cocktails in a perfect setting to start or finish a night. Lift Bar is another excellent option – it has an upscale ambiance and is ideal for an afternoon refreshment or midnight nightcap.

I’m a gambler, and there are four bars worth checking out. The Gem Bar is a video poker bar with great craft beers and cocktails. The Baccarat Lounge is a hidden gem with a cozy bar, and the High Limit Lounge is for the high-rollers. They have elevated cocktails where players are risking $500 a hand. Finally, the Sports Bar near the sportsbook is a casual spot with a great selection of beers and liquors. You can watch the game, play video poker, or chat.
