Las Vegas is famous for its legendary nightclubs that pulsate until the sun comes up—but the city is now revolutionizing the party scene with dayclubs, bringing the dance floor poolside, where revelers can have fun in the sun–after a night of clubbing or sleep.
Check out some of the most popular Las Vegas pool party spots, whether you want to dance until the sun goes down or just relax on a lounge chair and soak in the vibe…
1. Encore Beach Club
Encore Beach Club is a gorgeous combination of opulent indulgence with a bit of whimsy, mixed with star power: EDM duo The Chainsmokers signed a three-year residency deal with Wynn Las Vegas and will be performing regularly at the expansive outdoor party space, a 60,000-square-foot venue that features three tiered pools, daybeds, cabanas and bungalows. The crowds pack in for these events, turning them into poolside concerts with thousands of your closest friends for the afternoon. You might even see lead singer Drew Taggart lounging by the pool between sets.
2. The Tank at Golden Nugget
The Tank at Golden Nugget is a $30 million complex complete with a shark tank, three-story waterslide and 13 private cabanas. Guests can also climb 30 feet in the air, lean back and take an exciting ride through a secure waterslide. After swimming with the sea creatures, dry off and enjoy the H2O Bar. Plus this casino is perfectly situated to experience Downtown Las Vegas, a mix of local hipsters and Harley-Davidson aficionados who mix and mingle like one big happy fun-loving family.
3. Azure Luxury Pool
Las Vegas high profile visitors enjoy keeping a low profile at Azure Luxury Pool, the Romanesque dayclub at The Palazzo, a more intimate party space than some of its Las Vegas Strip neighbors. Guests indulge in exquisite amenities from menus by legendary chef Wolfgang Puck and massages by Canyon Ranch SpaClub. Or keep things simple just by enjoying complimentary frozen grapes and fresh fruit, Evian mistings and chilled towels. As the pool deck is perched a few floors up in the air, don’t forget to take a moment to enjoy the view of the Las Vegas Strip.
4. Rehab at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino
Rehab at Hard Rock is one of the biggest daytime pool parties in Las Vegas. For the VIP experience, Rehab has cabanas and lounge chairs near the main pool, the second pool and river, and then a second layer of cabanas overlooks the action, which are great for partiers who like to feel like they preside like royalty. For thrill seekers, there’s also a water slide that will drop you off in the second pool, and as a bonus, Rehab guests can also access the Hard Rock Hotel’s Nirvana and Breathe pools.
5. Marquee Dayclub at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
The day club at Marquee Dayclub at The Cosmopolitan features three-story bungalow lofts, complete cabanas and living quarters–but who has time to stay inside the cabana? Marquee hosts top DJs, including American house duo Tritonal, who recently teamed up with Adam Lambert to record the song “Broken.”
6. Drai’s Beach Club at The Cromwell
Check out the only rooftop party overlooking the Strip at Drai’s Beach Club atop The Crowmell. Drai’s offers 10 VIP bungalows, 15 VIP cabanas, two elevated pools and 40 daybeds, all 11 stories above the iconic Las Vegas skyline. Check out the 360-degree view, and note how the pool bumps up to the front of the stage. Jump into the water for a front-row view of the show’s big names like 50 Cent, who joined efforts to advocate for LGBTQ youth.
7. Daylight Beach Club at Mandalay Bay
Enjoy the best of Las Vegas nightclubs during daytime hours at Mandalay Bay’s Daylight Beach Club, featuring a 4,400 square-foot pool, 1,500 square-foot elevated stage, 70 daybeds, 25 cabanas and bungalows. This pool, like the dayclub party that happens there, is huge, offering signature cocktails and cuisine. DJs on the lineup include Disclosure, the duo that teamed up with Sam Smith to record such songs as Latch and Omen.
8. Temptations Sundays at The Luxor
The Luxor has one of the largest pool decks in Las Vegas, designed in four sections beneath the iconic black pyramid, which is the perfect layout to close off one of the pools for Temptations Sundays. One of the most popular LGBTQ events of the Las Vegas social calendar, Temptations runs in the summer starting in May, when that desert sun is hot, and the pool fills with locals and visitors alike who don’t miss their chance to wear their Speedos among like-minded friends. Rent a VIP cabana, or just come to swim for the day and hang out.
