The State of Las Vegas Pool Parties in 2021

Pool parties are one of the things we love most about Las Vegas. If you want to dance and drink under the desert sun with music cranking by the water, these daytime celebrations are right up your alley. However, the COVID-19 pandemic is having a dramatic effect on the pool party scene.

Some dayclubs and pool parties are continuing to operate, but with limited capacity and no general admission allowed. Table, daybed, cabana or bungalow reservations are now required. You’ll still be able to catch some rays, order bottle service and enjoy music over the sound system, but big-name headline DJs aren’t currently performing. Dancing is restricted to reservation areas and yes, you’ll have to wear a mask when not eating or drinking.

Health experts believe the coronavirus doesn’t spread by the water in swimming pools, which is a positive sign for spring and summer. So study up on the following pool parties and follow Lavish Vegas for the latest information and the best deals on reservations.

Las Vegas Pool Parties

Wet Republic Pool party

In terms of size and energy, it's hard to beat Wet Republic at the MGM Grand. A whopping 53,000 square feet in size, Wet Republic boasts the two largest salt water pools on the Strip and is surrounded by 18 daybeds, 10 cabanas and six bungalows. Wet Republic's champagne showers and sets by the likes of Calvin Harris, Tiesto and Steve Aoki are on hold during the pandemic, but you can still enjoy the sun, sounds and bottle service from beautiful model-like servers. If you need a change of pace, take a ride on the lazy river next store at the main hotel pool complex.
Marquee

  • Cabana & Daybed Price: $$$$
  • Days of Operation: Daily
  • Location: Cosmopolitan
  • Music: Hip-Hop, House, Top 40
  • Clothing: Swimwear/No basketball shorts, sports jerseys, baseball hats, or robes

Despite its name, Marquee never relied too much on famous headline DJs. The venue is all about atmosphere and scenery with a rooftop deck at the Cosmopolitan. The venue operates day and night on weekends. Lounge by the pool and enjoy pizza, sushi and other bites from the menu. Daybeds are nice and cabanas are stylish, but the most luxurious way to enjoy Marquee is by booking a three-story bungalow with a private party deck overlooking the pool. Think of it as a vacation home and cabana rolled up in one. And you can stash your own supply of booze in the fridge.
Tao

  • Days of Operation: Daily
  • Location: Venetian Hotel
  • Music: Hip-Hop, House, Top 40

An extension of Tao nightclub, Tao Beach is a poolside oasis that's kept private, exclusive, and separate from the rest of the sprawling pool complex at the Venetian & Palazzo resorts. The venue closed in 2020 for renovations (planned before the pandemic) and has yet to announce an opening date for 2021. When it returns, expect Tao Beach to be better than ever with high-end luxury cabanas and an Asian theme still in place. The food menu traditionally boasts Far East-influenced flavors like sushi, edamame, and Korean-style chicken wings.
Sapphire

  • Days of Operation: Friday-Sunday
  • Location: Industrial Ave
  • Music: House, Top 40
  • Clothing: Swimwear
  • Hours: 12-6 p.m.
  • Hot factor: HotHotHot
As the only pool at a Las Vegas strip club, the Sapphire Pool & Dayclub has evolved from a naughty novelty to a daytime party spot that competes with many of the more high-profile offerings on the Strip. After tweaking out some of the legalities, topless sunbathing has returned - for both guests and staff. (Pasties available upon request.) The menu has seen recent improvements and social media stars are often invited to host parties. Perhaps best of all, parking is easy and free. If you haven't visited in a while, plan a return when the action picks up over summer.
Bare

  • Hot factor: HotHotHot
Bare is more intimate than your average dayclub and best known for topless sunbathing. Surrounded by towering palm trees, the venue is a welcome retreat from the chaos of the Mirage's main pool complex with beautiful people enjoying the sun, sipping on tropical cocktails and taking a dip in one of two pools. Unfortunately, Bare has been closed throughout the pandemic, so check directly for the latest reopening information and hours.

  • Clothing: Swimwear/No baggy clothing, jeans, or basketball shorts
  • Hours: 11 a.m. - 7 pm. (10 a.m. - 7 p.m. Saturday)
  • Hot factor: HotHotHotHot
The 60,000-square-foot Encore Beach Club is an exciting and indulgent playground with a three-tiered pool complex and a variety of luxurious daybeds and cabanas equipped with refrigerators and flat-screen televisions. However, for the most luxurious option, book one of the eight 350-square-foot two-story bungalows with views of the Strip. Each one features hot tubs, showers, lavish furnishings and temperature-controlled cooling and heating systems. While other dayclubs have swim-up blackjack games, EBC actually has a full-on pavilion for table games. Once the pandemic is over, expect the Chainsmokers, Kygo and other residency acts to make a grand return. If you prefer to skip the sun, the pool operates after sundown as EDC At Night.

  • Hot factor: Hot
Venus is a welcome alternative to the sprawling Garden of the Gods pool complex at Caesars Palace. The white décor suggests serenity and luxury while the green shrubbery secures privacy. Formerly an intimate, topless dayclub, Venus dropped its "toptional" policy in recent years and operates as an all-ages pool when the main deck is closed during the slower months. It could shift back into "adults only" mode during peak spring and summer weeks, so check directly about the latest hours and policies. Either way, you'll enjoy tropical cocktails, frozen towels and plenty of food with lounge-style beats in the background.

Liquid matches the stylish, modern image of the Aria at CityCenter, providing a daytime pool party that's fun and energetic without being too hectic. The 1,200-square-foot main pool is surrounded by 85 plush chaise lounge chairs and 35 daybeds, while two separate pools boast uber-VIP cabanas. Nosh on ahi tuna, tacos and sweet potato fries while sipping on fruity cocktails (including four different mojitos) served by one of the fetching Liquid girls.

Daylight is a chic and sophisticated spot to chill out and party. Located on the Strip next to Mandalay Bay, Daylight has its own free parking (always a plus!), towering palm trees, and 50,000 square feet of space to lay out and soak up the sun. At the center of it all is a glistening pool, Ibiza-inspired style and a 1,400-square-foot elevated stage (to welcome Rick Ross and other regular entertainers when they return). The monthly nighttime Eclipse events are also on hold for now.
Drai's

  • Hours: 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. (10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Tuesday)
  • Hot factor: HotHotHot
When it comes to spectacular views, there's nothing better than Drai's Beach Club, 11 stories above Las Vegas Boulevard on the rooftop of the Cromwell hotel. The beautiful beach setting has a distinct tropical feel, featuring three different pools, nine bungalows sharing five dipping pools, 13 mezzanine cabanas and more than 40 daybeds. Unfortunately, Drai's remains temporarily closed during the pandemic. When it reopens, expect the music to once again be heavily weighted toward hip-hop, rap and R&B.
Go Pool

  • Days of Operation: Daily
  • Location: The Flamingo
  • Music: Open Format
  • Clothing: Swimwear/No sportswear, jeans, or banana hammocks
  • Hours: 9 a.m. - 6 p.m.
Open seven days a week, Go Pool could be your best bet for a mid-week pool party. It's not quite as big as other dayclubs, but the pool deck is scenic with tons of palm trees, a waterfall and the High Roller visible next door. Check in for specials during the week, including Margarita Mondays and Twisted Tuesdays (featuring specials on Twisted Tea). The cabanas are a little on the older side, but you'll save a few bucks compared to fancier places.

Open 365 days a year, Stadium Swim is one of the largest and most popular pools in Las Vegas. The rooftop deck at the brand-new Circa resort on Fremont Street has six pools on a stadium-style incline facing a massive 143-foot video wall. Catch games and other big events in crystal-clear high-def with 14 million pixels. A DJ booth directly underneath has local talent spinning the latest hits for an upbeat atmosphere. Cabanas are spacious and comfortable with high-end contemporary furnishings, but you can save a few bucks with a daybed or lounge chair rental.
