You’ve been working out, eating right, growing that tan, and now it is finally time to hit Las Vegas pool season. The question isn’t when to go- it’s where. From the minute the hotel pools open in March, the city is going to be a literal wet dream. Whether you book a trip for spring or mid-summer, you will always have options and places to go. But before you book a table or grab tickets for the hottest acts of the year, let us tell you about three of the best spots to party in your swimsuits.
If you’ve ever wanted to visit Mykonos, or you’ve been and are craving the lavish party aesthetic the island is known for, look no further than Elia Beach at The Virgin Hotel Las Vegas. This Greece-inspired oasis boasts all house-genres to dance along to, as well as a paradise- themed backdrop. The thatched straw roofs allow guests some reprieve from the baking desert sun, or you can dip your toes in the sand-bottomed azure pool and sway along to the beats. The bohemian vibes will transport you to another world, replete with tasty cocktails, body painting stations, and cute cabanas perfect for an Insta selfie or 20.
You’ve heard the name, but you’ve not experienced anything like the revamped Tao Beach at the Venetian Hotel. This rooftop venue has just undergone a Kardashian-level makeover, with a bigger pool deck that allows for more shenanigans and scantily clad dancing. It is set to be considered one of the “largest day clubs in Las Vegas: 44,000 square feet with an occupancy of 3,000,” according to Las Vegas Weekly magazine. Expect to wander through Bali-inspired décor after taking an elevator directly through the restaurant below to the rooftop entrance. The cabanas are bigger and better than ever, and guests can choose from two monster bars and watch top-tier acts from the massive DJ booth which will feature a brand-new LED screen. This is one party you won’t want to miss, so don’t.
In the true spirit of this new wave of pool parties whose name you can’t quite pronounce, Ayu Day club sits at the top of the list. Not only are the acts INCREDIBLE, including favorites like Zedd, Tiesto, Ruckus and Cash Cash, but the venue itself is jaw-dropping. Once you’ve hit Mykonos and Bali (aka Elia and Tao) why not travel Southeast Asia without ever reaching for your passport? Ayu will transport you to another type of island oasis, complete with a towering stage you can see from almost anywhere in the club, especially the pool. Palm trees offer a little shade and line the periphery, adding to the paradise-inspired atmosphere. You may as well keep the party going at their nighttime venue Zouk, or checkout the evening pool parties they offer throughout the year. Splurge on a cabana to really experience the high-roller lifestyle, or just spend the whole time in the pool splashing along to your favorite acts.
Regardless if you have time for one of all of these venues, you won’t want to miss out on the newest pool party action the city has to offer! Pack those swimsuits and don’t skimp on the sunscreen- thank us later.
