Take a dip, don’t be one: Pool clubs to start the season right
Don’t just kick it by the pool in Las Vegas—there are myriad poolside pleasures available. The type of pleasure is up to you.
If it’s the more upscale, pampered, jet-set vibe you seek, head to Azure Luxury Pool at The Palazzo. The secluded and seductive pool club offers a personal concierge for each of the 10 cabanas. Wolfgang Puck provides fresh seafood and sushi, among other delights. Poolside massages come by way of Canyon Ranch SpaClub, and you can soak in the sun at one of two pools while stretched out on a daybed.
Among the lush environs of The Mirage’s outdoor acreage sits the 21-and-over Bare. The intimate space offers daybeds and open-air cabanas as well as an elevated VIP area with its own dipping pool. Another bonus? European sunbathing, meaning no tan lines for the ladies!
Rehab Pool at Hard Rock Hotel and Wet Republic Ultra Pool at MGM Grand are where you’ll want to party hard. The weekend Rehab parties kicked off the pool club craze way back when, while Wet Republic has gotten a rep for its top EDM DJs. Rehab offers an assortment of cabanas at various vantage points and a sandy beach with a lagoon-style pool. Wet Republic’s bungalows and party cabanas really are some of the best in the entire city.
If you’re seeking a brand-new venue, hit up Foxtail Pool Club at SLS Las Vegas. The music bumps so loud at this party you’ll hear it from the self-parking garage. Once inside, the décor is reminiscent of a trendy Miami hangout with white furnishings and crystal-blue waters. Live DJ sets keep the vibe high-energy all weekend long.
