Las Vegas is a huge party destination. Those on a party tour of Sin City can either spend their days nursing a hangover in bed or keep the party alive by the pool. Sin City has endless pool parties that attract crowds from Prince Harry to the hottest Sports Illustrated models. They all come for the cool pool on a hot day in the desert, private cabanas, and fruity cocktails. No matter the reason, make sure to attend one of our five best pool parties in Vegas.
1. Rehab Sundays – Hard Rock Hotel and Casino
Hard Rock Hotel and Casino’s Rehab Sundays is a must among Las Vegas pool parties. For more than a decade, this iconic Sunday fun day has been the go-to place for Las Vegas party people. The pool turns into a dance club, with DJs spinning all day. On top of music, booze and sun, Hard Rock hosts some fun competitions, like the Official Masters of Beer Pong Party and Bikini Invitational.
2. Marquee Dayclub -The Cosmopolitan
New addition to the US party scene, the Marquee has already made a big name for itself in Las Vegas and NYC. That tradition carries over to their dayclub, where they’re known to have live music produced by the likes of David Guetta. You’ll find several different live performances and events at this pool party throughout summer.
3. Wet Republic Ultra Pool – MGM Grand
Remember in summer 2012 when all those scandalous photos of Prince Harry at a Las Vegas pool party hit the tabloids? Well, this is where they were shot. If it’s good enough for royalty, it’s good enough for us! With 53,000 square feet to party, luxury cabanas and bungalows, and resident DJs like Tiesto and Calvin Harris, Wet Republic has the top pool parties in town.
4. Tao Beach – The Venetian
Comes summer, Tao Beach transforms into a day version of Tao’s Balinese-themed nightclub. From Friday to Sunday, rub elbows with celebs like Jamie Foxx and Heidi Klum in nothing but swimwear. If you want to escape the packed pool party, you can do so at one of their private, luxury cabanas, which come fully equipped with flat screen TVs and masseuses. This is a more classy Vegas pool party, but you can still expect debauchery.
5. Encore Beach Club – Wynn
A curvy pool, sunbeds located in and around it, private cabanas and live performances by DJs like David Guetta, Encore Beach Club is a great Vegas pool party to visit during Summertime. One interesting characteristic of this 60,000-square-foot complex is the balconies attached to private cabanas, giving its pool parties an even grander feel.
