Concierge.com's insider take:
A very smart design trick makes Haze nightclub at the Aria Casino feel like a hot spot every night of the week: The upstairs level, which surrounds the main dance floor, can be closed so the space still swirls with good energy on slower nights. There's also a semiprivate bar where you can meet friends before heading into the dance floor madness. The night we stopped by, girls on stilts dressed in exaggerated Victorian costumes passed through the crowd of twentysomething Red Bull– and vodka-fueled revelers, and Estelle, who had reserved the upstairs for her birthday celebration, popped down for a surprise performance of "American Boy." As at most Vegas clubs, be ready to spend—two shots of Patrón Silver and two waters ran us $56—and long lines form outside early, so you might find springing for the $300 bottle service to be worthwhile. Surprisingly, for an establishment run by Light Group vets (The Bank at Bellagio, Jet at Mirage), there have been complaints of disorganization among the door staff and table hostesses. We'll be watching to see if Haze can nip these problems in the bud before they escalate.David Tyda
