Aria News – Farewell Skybox Sports Bar & Grill

The Aria has one of the swankiest sports books in Las Vegas and since its opening, the closest food option for sports bettors was the Skybox Sports Bar and Grill located adjacent to the sports book entrance. Apparently, the $15 burger concept didn’t work here and The Aria has announced that Skybox will be closing in early January 2013. Aria has opened, closed, and/or remodeled a number of their dining establishments since its opening three years ago.

It’s unfortunate seeing Skybox leave as the food offerings, albeit a tad pricey, were actually pretty tasty compared to say, The Monte Carlo Brew Pub which has a great beer selection but subpar food. Being able to walk a to-go order from the Skybox over to the sports book was also a plus. Hopefully, the plethora of HD screens within the seating areas remains intact for the next restaurant concept that takes over the space.

As much as I was hoping for another sports book close Earl of Sandwich location to open here, I doubt if the upscale Aria would go that route. In fact, Vegas Eater reported that Shawn McLain, who operates Sage at Aria, could have something in the works for Skybox’s replacement.
