Elia at Virgin Hotels will likely tone down the presence of big-name DJs, while providing a less hectic alternative to busier dayclubs on the Strip.
Soak at the Palms is pretty tame by rowdy dayclub standards, but picks up the pace with DJs and bottle service deals on Industry Tuesdays and DIP Fridays. The pool appears to be welcoming more live entertainment this year like an I Love the ’90s concert on May 26 with Vanilla Ice and Color Me Bad leading the lineup.

Mega Margarita Towers in hibiscus, passion fruit, guava, desert pear and watermelon flavors, as well as new shareable cabana platters of charcuterie, fruit, tiger shrimp cocktails or a party combo that includes sliders, mini corn dogs, chicken tenders and fries. However, the biggest party continues to be next door at DayDream Pool Club.
Marquee at the Cosmopolitan will continue to be a hot party destination with the return of Full Bloom and Drenched After Dark events on Sundays.
