Celebrate Spring Break in Las Vegas

WET Republic

As the weather heats up, Las Vegas becomes an in-demand destination for Spring Break. College students from around the country are in town to take advantage of hotel deals, pool parties, bars and nightclubs.

So why is Vegas such a big draw? First of all, everything is about convenience. The Strip is effectively a one-stop-shop for partying, with attractions in easy walking distance of hotel rooms. Plus… other parts of the country are still defrosting a bit from their winter chill. Vegas is full of sunshine with little rain to worry about. The only weather concern is the wind, which can often act up in April and catch unsuspecting visitors off-guard.

Spring Break Pool Parties

When spring comes around, it’s all about the dayclubs. Beautiful people with beautiful bodies will don their skimpiest swimwear to mix and mingle by the water. Be ready to spend some money. The drinks can get expensive and it’s worth the price to splurge on a cabana. You’ll enjoy the privacy, space, guaranteed seating, and a model-level server waiting on your every need. Most of the action can be found at the following dayclubs and pool parties.

  • Wet Republic: This wild and rowdy party at the MGM Grand is known for champagne showers and high-energy sets by big-name headliners like Steve Aoki and Tiesto.
  • Drai’s: If you love beautiful scenery, you’ll love Drai’s. This rooftop pool party includes stunning panoramic views of Las Vegas from the rooftop of the Cromwell hotel. Headliners lean towards hip-hop and R&B. The food isn’t bad either.
  • Encore Beach Club: The Wynn’s sprawling pool party has plenty of space, whether you want to be close to the dance floor, relax in a cabana or watch the girls dance on stripper poles above the water. The Chainsmokers, Marshmello and Diplo are among the acts you can expect to see throughout the month.

Spring Break Bars

Vegas is full of high-end ultra lounges, but spring breakers tend to keep things loose and fun. The following bars are hot destinations for the college crowd.

  • Rockhouse: This casual spot at the Venetian has great burgers, delicious nachos and all-you-can drink packages attractive to any college student on a tight budget.
  • Beer Park: This rooftop bar at Paris Las Vegas overlooks the Strip and Bellagio fountains across the street. Enjoy giant-size versions of games like Connect Four and Jenga while ordering one of more than 100 beers, including at least 30 on tap.
  • Blondies: A must-stop for sports fans who want to catch a big game on TV. Located inside the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood, Blondies has more than 60 screens, late-night hours, and a $20 all-you-can-drink happy hour and reverse happy hour.
