Gem Bar at Aria Resort & Casino
Las Vegas, Nevada
MGM Resorts International retained NOVUS Architecture to design a new 12 seat Casino Bar to replace the original Deuce Bar, while also reconfiguring the Casino pathway. The design challenge was simply to integrate the new video poker bar into the existing contemporary vernacular of Aria.
After the larger footprint of Deuce Bar was demolished, the casino ceiling was reconfigured to tie into the existing ceiling context and aesthetic. A new suspended ceiling canopy floats over the bar defining the space while creating a more intimate experience for patrons. Stacked granite, metal cladding, and wood veneer complement existing finishes at Aria helping Gem Bar fit seamlessly into this energetic resort setting.
