As We See It

No matter where you are at CityCenter, there’s a Starbucks nearby

There are five (!) Starbucks stores at CityCenter.

The one in front of Mandarin Oriental has a hidden lounge and a back door with easy access to Pinkberry. The one in Crystals sells upgraded snacks prepared in Aria’s main kitchen, from tuna wraps to Thai chicken salads. And if you wander deeper into CityCenter to check out the Nancy Rubins canoe sculpture, don’t worry—there’s a new one at Vdara.

You’re never more than a few steps away from Starbucks when you’re on the Strip. The ubiquitous coffee company’s presence on Las Vegas Boulevard is no surprise, but MGM Resorts must have a particular affinity for caramel flan frappuccinos; the newest store at Vdara makes five Starbucks at CityCenter alone, counting the one in the walkway between Aria and Monte Carlo.

Monte Carlo has another one, too. MGM Grand and Luxor have three each, likely making them the most caffeinated of casinos.

No wonder this city never sleeps.
