The latest casualty in the Vegas restaurant wars? Skybox Sports Bar & Grill at Aria shuts down on Jan. 2, following in the footsteps of Union, which closed to make way for Javier's, Shaboo closing inside BarMasa for Masa Takayama's new Tetsu and The Buffet at Aria, which just finished a remodel.
While sports book enthusiasts lose a space for ordering burgers, diners may be gaining a new hot spot from Shawn McClain, the Chicago restauranteur who already has Sage at Aria.
During the Food & Wine All-Star Weekend, McClain confirmed rumors that he is opening a second location at Aria, this time a more casual concept. At the time, McClain said construction starts after a renovation of the buffet.
