Address: 3720 Las Vegas Blvd. S.
Status: Opened on Thursday
Replacing The Pods, Wolfgang Puck's shuttered coffee bar, Starbucks has opened its third outpost at CityCenter this year. Located on a mezzanine within the high end mall Crystals, it joins a recently opened concept store at the Strip facing Crystals annex and yet another branch that opened on the second floor of Aria, earlier this week.
Open daily from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m., the Crystals store keeps the original pod shaped sculptures looming over the counter from its earlier incantation as The Pods. All three stores possess a purposeful look removed from the chain's overly familiar design palette.
