Las Vegas Pool Parties

Forget the gambling, the nightlife, the shopping and restaurants. People are now going to Las Vegas to swim..!

Well, not really "swim", per se…

Take that famed glitz-laden nightlife, move it out by the pool about 12 hours earlier, sprinkle in liberal doses of booze, music and skin – it’s the phenomenon otherwise known as the Las Vegas pool party.

In the town where they literally think of every possible thing to entertain you 24/7, there was a rather empty block of time midday that wasn’t occupying everyone. Visitors were merely wandering lunch buffets or staying in their rooms sleeping off a late night of partying. Why not rid oneself of that hangover poolside on a canopy covered lounger?

Makes sense to me..!

In 2004 the first major player in this wet and wild category was Rehab at the Hard Rock Hotel. People begin lining up at 8:00 in the morning for the opportunity to partake in a little daytime debauchery.

Of course other casinos have jumped onboard this profitable express. The Venetian has their take on the pool party at the Tao Beach Club. An extension of the popular Tao Nightclub, the pool is open daily but is highlighted with “Sunset Sundays”. At the Palms, the Palms Pool has “Ditch Fridays” - A proper way to start your weekend festivities.

Venus Pool Club at Ceasars Palace aims for a more upscale and less chaotic experience, with frozen towels and an excellent appetizer menu. Another pool along these lines, with a more intimate experience is Bare at the Mirage, offering private daybeds and boatbeds along with the requisite poolside chaise lounges.

Regardless of which pool you select, you really can’t go wrong. Reserve your spot now and work off that hangover with a pitcher of your favorite beverages and a little sunshine!
