ARIA Resort & Casino Hosts MJCI April 3-6 - March News
The Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational (MJCI) returns to the surreal and stunning Shadow Creek Golf Course April 3-6. After a fun day out at the course, guests can enhance their MJCI experience at the tournament’s host resort, ARIA Resort & Casino with a delectable pizza restaurant, a spectacular Cirque du Soleil production and a unique Fine Art Collection. Who knows, maybe you’ll brush shoulders with a celebrity or two?
- There’s no better place to grub and watch the men’s college basketball tournament than FIVE50 Pizza Bar. Created by James Beard award-winning chef Shawn McClain, the casual pizza restaurant’s name is inspired by the temperature at which the pizza is cooked (and the time when the pizza bar celebrates a special daily happy hour!). The menu features McClain’s signature pizzas paired with an impressive selection of craft beers along with small plates, handmade pastas, an artisanal charcuterie selection and decadent desserts.
- Guests will be amazed by the breathtaking Zarkana by Cirque du Soleil, a spirited journey through an abandoned theater where an extraordinary circus comes back to life. Populated by a motley collection of off-the-wall characters and incomparable acrobats, the recently reimagined Zarkana is a visual vortex set in a twisted acrobatic fantasy universe where, little by little, chaos and craziness give way to a true celebration. The Cirque spectacular features an international cast of 70 world class acrobats, aerialists, jugglers, high-wire and trapeze artists. Zarkana’s newest act, the Atherton Twins, is a sensational performance of aerial straps that debuted in February.
- ARIA’s Fine Art Collection, the first major permanent collection in Las Vegas to be integrated into a public space, enlivens the Las Vegas experience with visual masterpieces and unique photo opportunities. As if in a strolling gallery, guests can discover works by world-renowned artists such as Maya Lin and Nancy Rubins in courtyards, hallways, lobbies and public entrances. From vibrant and ornate to intimate and serene, these works are strategically placed around the ARIA campus to reveal a world of fascinating experiences.
