Call it chic, hip or even minimalist, but all Aria really has to be is Aria for us to love it. Set back from the Strip, it eschews the foot traffic, and embraces the fact that if you're there then it's exactly where you want to be.If you're a drinker, (because of course that's the first place we go with a review) you have to check out Alibi. The Rosemary Amoretti looks like a Jane Austen novel, smells like a flower shop in the middle of a meadow and tastes like just the best purple cocktail you've ever had. They also have the Bright Eyed and Bushy Tailed for when you need a pick-me-up or Her Alibi when you're on the run from the law and need something to mellow you out. Whatever drink you choose, the space doesn't feel like your typical lobby bar. Alibi, as well as Aria's other bars like Lift Bar.But there are other things to do at Aria besides drinking. We follow up great cocktails with a stop at  Julian Serrano for delicious tapas to share with a special friend or complete strangers if you happen to run into some people you like. BarMASA remarkably transforms an industrial, airy space into a serene dining experience. Jean Georges Steakhouse brings meat and seafood together like a surf and turf fit for royalty, or at least a celebrity. Michael Mina's Bardot Brasserie offers exotic French delicacies like foie gras en croute. And Five50 Pizza serves up some of the tastiest pizza you can imagine. With casual dining like the Aria Café, sweet treats at the Jean Philippe Pâtisserie and, since it's a hotel/casino, an exquisite buffet, Aria is one fine spot to fill your belly with food – before you go back for another cocktail.When the weather is warm enough, which for Vegas means a good chunk of the year, guests can cannonball like a boss into three pools spread across a 215,000-square-foot deck laden with palm trees and lush landscaping and lay out in the sun at the Liquid Pool Lounge. Along with DJs spinning the hottest music and luxurious private cabanas and daybeds, you can indulge in refreshing cocktails from multiple bars and a mouth-wetting menu from Chef Brian Massie. And once you're tired from a morning of laying in the sun eating a drinking, the Spa and Salon stretches between two levels and includes meditation and relaxation rooms, eucalyptus steam rooms, redwood saunas, a deluxe fitness room, a group exercise studio, velvety facials, therapeutic massages and hydrotherapy treatments – so basically anything you could think of that someone could do to your body to help you relax while still being within the law.Shopping also abounds at Aria. Terrene carries one-of-a-kind designer apparel and jewelry for women, while men can get outfitted at Aria Men's store. Also stop by Radiance (an art gallery), Papillon (an accessories store) and Elements (a design and sundries shop). And for even more upscale splurging on stuff you can show off when you get home, Crystals at CityCenter is just outside Aria's main lobby. You can stop by just to shop or wind your way around the center to find yourself on the Strip.For the artistically minded, or anyone wanting to become artistically minded, Aria's fine art collection, which features a mix of prominent and up-and-coming artists, is among the most extensive around. Pieces have been integrated throughout indoor and outdoor public spaces on the property. In the lobby, you'll catch sight of "Silver River" by New York-based artist Maya Lin. The 84-foot sculpture of the Colorado River was made from 100 percent reclaimed silver. Also visible through windows in the lobby is a well-known sculpture by Henry Moore situated in the park between Aria and Crystals. Made from Italian travertine marble, "Reclining Connected Forms" depicts a baby wrapped in its mother's arms. And, at the south entrance by the stairs to the self-parking garage, sit three striking stainless steel sculptures -- "Bolt," "Bent of Mind" and "Untitled/Tall Column" -- by British-born artist Tony Cragg.Aria's casino boasts a unique layout, one that is spacious yet features discrete pockets of action like several small high-limit gaming areas, a fine sports book with 90 video screens ranging in size from 32 to 103 inches, an elegant poker room framed by sculptures of playing cards and even an exclusive one-table "Ivey Room," named in honor of seven-time World Series of Poker champion Phil Ivey. That makes for a lot of gambling or just a lot of standing around and watching people gambling once you're out of money. Aria is a beautiful spot for either.And the property is even environmentally friendly earning Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design's Gold certification for Aria's hotel tower, convention center and theater from the U.S. Green Building Council. That's a big, long way of saying it's pretty green. So if that's important to you then Aria is a good choice. And even if it's not, you can stay at Aria for all the other outstanding reasons and just claim to care about the environment too.With personalized, high-tech touch service and an artistic yet approachable feel, Aria is one of the Strip's brightest stars, even when they keep the casino floor dim. Whether you're taking in a show, grabbing a slice, taking someone's well-tested and very serious advice about cocktail selections or just passing through because that's where you ended up after walking through Crystals, Aria is one hotel/casino that will keep you interested and surely keep you coming back.

Oops! She did it again... and we are definitely not complaining.Like Elvis Presley before her, Britney Spears has parlayed a Las Vegas show into a revitalized public image and career. And it's no surprise that Brit opens her show with the 2013 high-energy dance single "Work B*tch" considering that she is undoubtedly working it... and will continue to do so through February 2017.With 14 dancers shaking their collective asses off, 24 songs (performed in part or full), plus high-end digital effects and a plethora of props (Giant tree! Wings! Levitating cage ball! Confetti!), Britney has resurrected the over-the-top pop star fans love and remember.Ah yes, the fans. Don't expect a quietly respectful audience at this show. Hardcore fans will be singing and screaming along as Britney performs many of her hits, including "Oops!… I Did It Again," "…Baby One More Time," "Toxic," "Slave 4U" and "Circus" among many other favorites.The Axis Theater is a massive, 4,500-seat showroom that was remodeled for "Britney: Pieces of Me" complete now with an extended catwalk-style stage that allows Britney and her dancers to get closer to the audience. VIP tables and booths have been placed around these for the über fans wanting the ultimate up-close experience and not to forget the general admission pit that is surrounded by the stage.... Britney can literally be at your fingertips.Seats up close will offer amazing views of Britney's costumes, some which reference iconic looks from her performance history. Yes, a jewel encrusted bodysuit reminiscent of the "Toxic" video makes an appearance.In one of the more visually stunning segments Britney performs "Everytime" suspended over the stage as a giant angel before revealing her sultry side in a black-strapped and feathered piece to perform "…Baby One More Time.""Bad" Britney makes another appearance later, cracking a whip over a crawling audience member, which is usually a celebrity in attendance such as Mario Lopez, Lance Bass or Pauly D, during her performance of "Freakshow." Another inspired moment showcases a 20-foot jump off a tree during a jungle-themed, wet performance of "Toxic."The show clocks in between 80 and 90 minutes depending on if you count the video montage lead-in and how long you and your fellow audience members dance in the aisle to final song "Till the World Ends."Packed with exciting effects, signature dance moves, and extravagant sets, the only remaining question is, will you be a slave 4 Britney?

Disappointing
PostedAugust 19, 2017
We were very excited about seeing the show, but poor sound quality clearly made this show less than expectations. My wife who is a huge fan of Britney couldn't wait for it to end.

“O” is not just the name of the show, but also the shape your mouth will take for the entire 90 minutes you’re gawking over this production. The wettest Cirque du Soleil show of all, “O” at Bellagio immerses audiences into a dream world of acrobats, synchronized swimmers, divers and an array of other aquatic characters in, on and above a 1.5-million gallon pool. It’s kinda like that one time you drank a little too much cough syrup and went swimming in your neighbor’s pool – but way cooler.Don’t freak out, the audience is out of the splash zone – but the daredevils (who are clearly moonlighting as performers) show off their gravity-defying stunts and create illusions with the giant pool that doubles as a stage. Considering the dimensions of this unique performance area, it is easy to feel as though you’re in an alternate universe in this super cool theater.Fun fact: each performer has several identical custumes that they change into throughout the show… how else do you think they re-appear from their watery plunges bone-dry?You’ll ooh, you’ll aah, you’ll wonder how in the h-e-double hockey sticks they did that. This show is perfect for just about everybody; unless you’re looking for a rave… then this show is definitely not for you.  But there’s one thing we can guarantee, you’re going to love the way we “O.”

America's favorite faceless dance crew is back. Jabbawockeez rose to fame on "America's Best Dance Crew" and has since captivated  audiences and the dance community with its unique style.In white masks and gloves, the Jabbawockeez direct audience members' attention away from their individual identities to emphasize the dancers' unity and to create visual representations of music.Jabbawockeez was the first dance crew to headline on the Las Vegas Strip. Their show "MÜS.I.C." premiered at the MGM Grand in 2010. They have since performed at the Monte Carlo and Luxor. They are now returning to the MGM Grand for an unforgettable show.

Get ready to experience the ultimate sensory overload when our favorite blue bros take the stage and crank up the volume. An audiovisual encounter unlike anything else on the Strip, Blue Man Group is fun for the whole family and just doesn’t get old no matter how many times you see it.  The narrators of the Blue Man Group show profess to know a lot about human nature and social evolution, but the three bald and blue stars are oddly oblivious. Through music, movement and only a little bit of verbal communication, you become a part of this production and swim in the sights and sounds that douse the theater. The show is good clean fun with a variety of acts and quick-change illusions, but the core of its appeal is the company's signature music, played on far-out, makeshift instruments.Seriously fun and unconventionally educational, you’ll have had a lot of laughs, and have maybe even shaken your caboose. Go ahead and let your jaw drop open, after all, being consumed by entertainment produced by three blue men is a perfectly acceptable reaction.

Blue Man Group
PostedApril 11, 2013
Good show. I had seen their prior production at the Venetian and this is very similar. Love the percussion. 10 years ago these guys were very original and today they still are quite unique. A good time was had by all.

 Criss Angel Believe from Cirque du Soleil
Criss Angel Believe from Cirque du Soleil
What would a magician do when his act gets mixed reviews for having too much going on and too much filler?He'd make those parts disappear, of course.And in true magical fashion, he makes them re-appear as something much better.The recently revamped Criss Angel Believe from Cirque du Soleil brings out more of what Angel's fans have been clamoring for in the first place: magic.This production has seen some significant changes in response to feedback from guests and critics alike, and the end result is a highly focused and entertaining show.Criss Angel Believe takes his illusions and stage presence, combined with the flair and artistry Cirque is best known for -- with just enough of each to make fans of both happy.Although the magic acts in Criss Angel Believe form a loosely-connected narrative, this story is secondary to wowing the audience with illusions. From levitation to "how'd-he-do-it?" disappearances, Angel brings out all the acts he has made famous on "Mindfreak" and then some, along with some more traditional illusions with an added "Mindfreak" twist to them.From the theater itself to the set pieces used during Angel's performance, the whole atmosphere is dark with gothic accents, reminiscent of old-fashioned circuses and carnivals with a morbid twist.Angel's back-and-forth interaction with the audience throughout the show keeps things interesting, but his bumbling assistants -- four "ushers" named Maestro, Luigi, Slim and Lars --  ensure that the whole experience, from start to finish, inspires both awe and laughter. Expect lots of dark humor, as Angel has snappy commentary to accompany many of his illusions."You're applauding this woman being cut in half. Really, that's horrible. Just horrible," he says with a sarcastic grin, after a scaled-up take on the classic "saw a woman in half" trick. We've never thought about it like that, but Angel generally has an entirely different way of thinking about these illusions than your average magician does.If you've ever wanted to be a part of a larger-than-life, stage version of Angel's "Mindfreak" program -- this is the show to see.-- Staff report

This is not your usual Cirque du Soleil
PostedApril 11, 2013
While it says Cirque du Soleil (CdS), don't be misled. It has the comic intro of the CdS series and some similar type costumes and sets, but it is not what people come to know and love about CdS. Criss Angel is a funny and inventive magician but he is consistent with top notch Vegas magicians. We did have a good time and I would absolutely recommend him.

My child is 2.5 years old can he attend the show?

I don't see why not. There is no nudity or violence. Don't know what the house rules are though.
