Type: Ultimate Pools
Locked away deep inside CityCenter -- Las Vegas' city within a city -- is a world all its own. Liquid Pool Lounge at Aria is a wonderland of sun and shade.
There are almost no signs to lead you to Liquid's location, tucked away behind Aria's three other pools, but that's part of the charm of this unusual pool club -- the sense that entering Liquid is like stepping into a secret paradise.
At 16,000 square feet, Liquid is smaller than some other Strip pool clubs, but it never feels cramped. Up to 852 guests can lounge, dance or take a dip in total comfort here.
The first attraction once you round the entrance is the bar, where you can enjoy a mojito, sangria or another refreshing cocktail. The menu in the 50-seat, open-air restaurant was created by chef Brian Massie and features items like shrimp cocktails, quesadillas, salads, paninis and the beloved Kobe cheeseburger with Louis Sauce. Guests can come to Liquid just for lunch without paying a cover charge.
Surrounded by towering trees, the scene here is usually laid back. Trellises with climbing vines and huge geometric pots with exotic-looking plants and bright red flowers are scattered about. In fact, Liquid gets top marks for being a sanctuary of sorts. It was designed to make a splash, thanks to the three sleekly curved dipping pools and a contemporary sense of style. Mattresses in warm neutral shades with turquoise pillows can be found atop hand-crafted wicker furniture by Janus et Cie.
There are 85 chaise lounges and 35 daybeds to accommodate guests. Eight grand cabanas are set back along the perimeter in two VIP areas. Equipped with modern technology, each of these cabanas also boasts a cream-colored privacy drape, two robes, a ceiling fan, a 40-inch flat-screen TV and a mini fridge.
As you take in the rays, you'll be treated to cutting-edge sounds, courtesy of the best local and celebrity DJs. Plus, Thursdays have been designated as industry days, so expect some drink specials as well as a strong local turnout then.
Liquid stands out among the Strip pool clubs for offering big things in a small package. It's the perfect beach hideaway for a hot summer day.
