You won’t have any trouble getting your Starbucks fix while vacationing on the Las Vegas strip. There are plenty of them among the bustling hotels along Las Vegas Boulevard, including 4 inside the City Center complex alone.
Starbucks Location at the Aria
The Starbucks at the Aria is on the 2nd level Promenade, near the buffet, on your way towards the swimming pool entrance.
Unlike your typical Starbucks we’ve grown to know and love, this is a “concept store.” What does that mean? It looks more open, a little fancier and sort of more comfortable. I stick with my Pike’s Roast, but apparently the concept store has some limited edition blends.
Hours: 5 AM to 10 PM, seven days a week.
Of course, you can get pretty good free coffee at the Aria by going to waiting lounge outside the fitness area in the morning too.
Here are some other Starbucks locations at the City Center in Las Vegas:
The Shops at Crystals
This elegant shopping mall has a Starbucks on the mezzanine level, close to the staircase. Special to this location is the presence of food items from the Aria, next door.
It also has a futuristic, brown or black wicker-looking “pod” look not typical of the coffee chain. However you’ll still easily see the iconic green mermaid sign.
Hours for the Starbucks at the Crystals is Sunday through Thursday, 7:30 AM to 10 PM, and Friday and Saturday, from 7:30 AM to 11 PM.
Another City Center Starbucks is at Vdara, on the main level across from the Market Cafe, and on the walkway to the Aria Express Tram stop and Bellagio.
Hours: Sunday – Thursday: 6 AM to 8 PM
Friday and Saturday: 6 AM to 10 PM
Lastly, there’s a Starbucks at the food court at Park MGM.
Hours: 6 AM to 11 PM, Seven days a week.
Is There A Starbucks Location Inside the Bellagio?
Yes. It’s open from 6 AM to midnight, seven days week. You’ll find this Starbucks at the bottom of the escalators going to Bally’s.
Starbucks inside the MGM Grand
There are actually three of them within the MGM confines. And why not? The hotel does have over 5,000 rooms.
There’s one right by the hotel lobby check in (to your left when leaving the lobby and walking into the casino floor). This one stays open 24
hours a day, seven days a week.
Another Starbucks is basically on the casino floor, next to the Avenue Cafe. This one is open 24 hours a day.
The last Starbucks at MGM is at the resort’s food court, in what they call “The District.”
This location is open 7 AM to 10 PM, seven days a week.
Starbucks at Caesars Palace
Some have called it the fanciest Starbucks in Las Vegas. It’s a little to the left, down the hall from the front desk of the hotel, on your way to the Augustus Tower. It’s gold and glittery looks is fitting for Las Vegas.
Hours: 5:30 AM to 9 PM, seven days a week.
The massive Caesars Palace resort also has a Starbucks at the Forum Shops, attached to the casino.
