Two of Las Vegas’ newest retail and multiuse developments — City Center and Town Square — offer a contrast in styles. City Center, opened in December, is about sleek, futuristic luxury, while Town Square, which bowed at the end of 2007, is a homey, open-air lifestyle center. Here are some of their enticements for after-hours fun, food and frolics.
If you have energy left after a long day of trade shows, put your party shoes on and head to Haze Nightclub at Aria Resort & Casino. In the newest venture from The Light Group, a hospitality company, Haze invites patrons in under a large red canopy and over a bridge that crosses a moat. The metallic, black, red and gold interior features slanted steel walls, two-way mirrors, projection screens and strategically placed lighting to challenge guests’ perception. The dramatic 25,000-square-foot nightclub has a main dance floor with a cutting-edge Avalon-designed sound system and three full-service bars. For guests in search of a more relaxed atmosphere, there is an intimate lounge wrapped in suede walls and plush furniture. VIP’s can retreat up the grand staircase to a members-only room, decorated with luxurious jewel-like furniture. Haze Nightclub at Aria Resort & Casino at City Center, 3730 Las Vegas Boulevard; 702-693-8310 for table reservations; lightgroup.com/nightlife/haze-nightclub-las-vegas. Open Thursday to Saturday, 10:30 p.m. to 4 a.m.
