Aria, CityCenter, and Mandarin Oriental Sky Bar (17 photos)

The beautiful waterfall in front of Aria

I had low expectations before I arrived at Aria in Las Vegas. One of my good friends stayed there the weekend before, and told me that he didn't care for it too much.

Dinner in the Sky offers their crane and catering services to anyone who wants to hold a dinner for up to 22 guests in any location that can accomodate their crane.
