For years it has touted itself as the "largest 24-hour café on The Strip," but that claim to Las Vegas fame ended earlier this month. The Aria Café had stopped serving around the clock and is now open daily from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
The seven-year-old, elevated casino coffee shop features a large menu of casual American dishes and is partially lit by a huge wall of floor-to-ceiling windows facing the resort’s taxi stand and neighboring Vdara resort.
The surprise move follows the café placing 44th in Restaurant Business magazine’s annual list of the highest-grossing non-chain restaurants across the entire country. The magazine estimated the café earned $16,860,000 in annual sales, with a $22 average check and served 767,000 individual meals.
To compensate for the missing hours, the resort has announced that Jean Philippe Patisserie will be open 24 hours effective immediately, although Aria's own web resources still promote it is operating from 6 a.m. to midnight during the week and until 1 a.m. from Friday to Sunday.
Visitors looking for a very late-night snack can also head to the Burger Lounge, which flips until 3 a.m. from Friday to Monday.
