It’s difficult to talk about Vegas without mentioning the ubiquitous and extravagant pool parties that provide relief to so many of the city’s visitors after their nights of excess. The calming and revitalizing effects of a great brunch, delicious cocktails and scantily-clad bodies wandering about are hard to overstate. If you find the best pools in Las Vegas early in your stay, you’ll be able to make the absolute most of it for the rest of your time in the city.
One of the best ways to kick-start a weekend in Vegas is by heading down to the ‘Ditch Fridays’ event at the Palms. Here, huge-name DJs provide the perfect auditory backdrop to the scenes surrounding the three pools. Scantily-clad members of both sexes take advantage of the warm weather in Vegas and start their weekends of debauchery on a high note.
REHAB is one of the most popular Sunday pool parties in the city. With a long history, this was one of the original pool parties in Vegas. The Hard Rock hotel has the right to claim this as one of their best inventions. Despite its maturity, or perhaps because of it, this event has remained popular ever since it started. Running until dusk all the way from midday, this really could be the best pool in Las Vegas.
At the Palazzo, the Azure pool provides a much more low-key environment to help you chill the night Ayahuasca ceremonies before away. A huge hit with the ladies, the daybeds and cabanas are snapped up quickly, so it’s worth getting down early. If it’s DJs you’re more interested in, a heavier party atmosphere can be enjoyed over at the Encore Beach Club.
Over at the Tropicana Hotel, an exciting new event is about to start up which features what is sure to be the best pool in Las Vegas. Unsatisfied with the offerings that have been provided by other venues, the organizers at Nikki Beach want to turn the heat up a bit. From the private island situated in the tropical pool to the opium beds and secluded cabanas, the whole setup oozes luxury.
