As summer quickly approaches, anyone coming to Las Vegas should be prepared for those hot 110-degree nights.
Night time pool parties, otherwise known as nightswims, are by far the most epic parties in Vegas. There’s only a few night swims a week and they only take place during the Summertime (when it’s warm enough to get into the water at night). The dress code at nightswim is fairly lax – you can pretty much wear anything you’d be able to wear to a daytime pool party – in fact, it’s highly encouraged. You can also wear standard formal dresswear if you’re so inclined as well.
Here’s our guide to the best nightswim pool parties in Las Vegas:
Encore Beach Club At Night (Nightswim at Surrender) – Fridays and Saturdays at Surrender
Encore Beach Club is the most popular day party on the strip, and it’s just as fun at night.
Returning for it’s fourth year is Encore Beach Club at Night. This event used to be on Thursdays but has now been extended to Fridays and Saturdays. Nightswim at Surrender is a vibrant mixture of the daytime pool elements that you would enjoy at Encore Beach Club plus the excitement and entertainment that you only find in the top nightclubs. Bring your swimsuit and get ready to get turnt!
XS Nightswim – Sunday nights at XS, some Mondays
If you’ve never been to an XS Nightclub Sunday Nightswim party, you are missing out. Each and every year they set attendance records because they bring the top DJ talent and let guests get lit in the pool. There is no dress code for these Sunday Nightswim events. Feel free to wear pool or nightlife attire. Everyone is encouraged to jump in the water. Be prepared for things to get wild because as the energy intensifies you’re going to get wet!
Because dancing by the pool shouldn’t be limited to daylight hours, the Eclipse nighttime-pool-party will return this summer to Daylight Beach Club at Mandalay Bay.
Eclipse debuted two years and served as host to some of the most unique parties all year, likened to the famed sunset parties in Ibiza. This year will feature some hip hop artists such as Rick Ross, J Cole, and Metro Boomin.
Eclipse will be open from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. on certain nights throughout the season.
Wet at Night (Wet Republic Nightswim) – Wednesdays at Wet Republic
Wet Republic Ultra Pool at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino announced today its premiere season of “WET At Night”, its nighttime pool party set to take place every Wednesday throughout the summer.
The daytime destination will heat up as the sun goes down this summer with an impressive lineup every Wednesday night. Calvin Harris, Showtek, Tiesto, DVBBS as well as Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano are just a handful of talented star DJs who will grace the mid-week, nighttime event this season.
Wet Republic has been a go-to summer spot for visitors in Las Vegas since its opening. Last October, the high-energy dayclub offered partygoers its first look into its evening party concept, mixing exceptional service with chart-topping, headlining DJs. The “WET At Night” concept returns, but this time for a full slate events throughout the summer that will surely leave pool patrons asking for more.
