Encore Beach Club at Wynn Encore (EDM)

Crowded Pool Party called Encore Beach Club  in Las Vegas

Forget Disneyland, Encore Beach Club is known to many Vegas pool partygoers as “the happiest place on earth”. And after spending a day at EBC it would be hard to disagree with them: Encore’s impressive layout boasts a 50,000 square foot space complete with lounges, couches, daybeds, cabanas, bungalows, lily pads, 3 pools, a state of the art sound system, champagne showers, and even a gaming pavilion.

Not only is the pool always clean and the EDM music great, but the dance floor is also easily accessible and food is served straight to your cabana (always a bonus). Encore Beach Club’s resident DJs include world renowned talents such as The Chainsmokers, David Guetta, Kygo, Alesso, Diplo, and more.  Best of all, during the summer Encore turns into EBC at Night; so put on your swimsuit, jump in the pool and party with your favorite DJ under the stars! 

Drai’s Beach Club at Cromwell (Hip Hop)

A Busy Pool Party at Drais Beach Club at the Cromwell Las Vegas

All the way up on the 11th floor of The Cromwell, Drai’s Beach Club towers over what is arguably the busiest intersection in Vegas. During the daytime, it’s a beach pool party on steroids; as night falls, it evolves into an upscale, high-voltage nightclub. The dayclub features an unblocked rooftop which provides an unrivaled view of the Red Rock Mountains far off in the distance and the Bellagio fountains, located right across the street. The club is outfitted with a central pool surrounded by palm trees while pink curtains shroud the second-floor cabanas adorned with HD TVs – but with all the beautiful people dancing along to a live DJ, it’s doubtful anyone will be watching much television.

On the flipside, the nightclub is a two-story indoor space that faces the dayclub pool and is decked with shiny black semi-circular booths and a horseshoe DJ station, all surrounded by columns decorated with tons of postage stamp-sized mirrors. Drai’s will most often be playing top 40 / hip-hop but it will depend on the DJ. The nightclub regularly features some of the biggest name hip-hop artists in the world including 2 Chainz, Wiz Khalifa, 50 Cent, Gucci Mane, Migos, Lil Wayne, Trey Songz, TY Dolla $ign, and more.  On occasion they’ll bring in EDM DJs such as Quintino or Sidney Samson; on those days you’ll get a mix of hip-hop and EDM. We highly recommend checking out the upcoming schedule before planning your trip!

Pro-tip: Hotel guests at the Cromwell get free access to the dayclub!

Marquee Dayclub at The Cosmopolitan (EDM)

A sprawling club complex located in the heart of Vegas, Marquee is arguably one of the key figures of the Stateside dance music revolution. Split into Marquee Dayclub – a luxurious, sun-filled poolside space open during summer – and Marquee Nightclub, which is further split into The Boom Box Room, Library and Main Room, Marquee is undoubtedly one of the most impressive venues in the whole of the US.

If you’re still skeptical, just wait until you hear about Marquee’s sound and light systems: a Funktion One sound system with 32,000-waitt subwoofers and a state-of-the-art audio-visual stage set-up designed by singer Steve Liberman. Marquee provides nothing but the best to accommodate the high flyers that have been known to frequent the venue. The dayclub itself features three-story Bungalow Lofts complete with cabanas, living quarters, and grand Las Vegas pool cabanas with infinity pools and a party deck on top. Featuring artists such as Alan Walker, Robin Schulz, Deorro, Gorgon City, Cedric Gervais, and Oliver Helders, you can expect that this place gets WILD. 

Wet Republic at MGM Grand (EDM)

A playground for partygoers and celebrities alike, Wet Republic at MGM Grand combines the best elements of Vegas nightlife with superior poolside accommodations to create the ultimate pool party experience. The unrivaled hot spot provides a variety of experiences for its guests, whether it’s relaxing over cocktails in the poolside lounge, chilling in exclusive VIP bungalows, or basking under the sun amidst the party scene on the main pool deck.

MGM Grand’s 54,500 square-foot pool recently underwent a $3.574 million remodel to renovate 18,400 square feet of the space. Just last year, the pool debuted an expanded DJ booth, upgraded LED display, extended bar and new furniture. The latest renovations add six new VIP bungalows equipped with furnishings like TVs, misting fans and three private plunge pools. New restrooms and shower facilities as well as an extended shade area have also been added. The venue boasts a setlist as impressive as its facilities: resident DJs and artists include Calvin Harris, Tiesto, Zedd, Martin Garrix, Steve Aoki, Tyga, Afrojack and many more. 

JEMAA at the Nomad Pool (Open Format)

Cabanas and Lounge Chairs at JEMAA Las Vegas

On weekends, you’ll find The NoMad pool as JEMAA – The NoMad Pool Party. A seductive and vibrant daytime experience, JEMAA boasts a renowned cocktail program, table-side service, and a star-studded lineup of top-tier DJs and artists delivering themed music performances, including a tropical house-type vibe on Sundays. 

The star of the show is the beautiful and spacious pool, surrounded by daybeds, cabanas, and bungalows. To top it off, guests will find not one but two bars as well as a covered area to provide shelter from the sun, perfect for dining. Party hard with a stellar lineup of DJs all summer and find dreamy escape from the grittiness of The Strip in this garden-like oasis. Inspired by the Majorelle Gardens of Morocco, the venue features casual fare, expertly-crafted cocktails (they are award winning and seriously delicious) and an impressive selection of wines. Don’t forget to inquire about the cocktail fountain at JEMMA! 

Daylight Beach Club at Mandalay Bay (Hip Hop)

Busy Pool Party with DJ at Daylight Beach Club Las Vegas

While Daylight Beach Club may not be the oldest club in the game (it made its debut summer 2013 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino) it’s certainly gone on to become one of the hottest dayparty spots in Las Vegas. DBC features 70 daybeds, 25 cabanas, 6 LED screens, and a 5,000 square-foot pool. The venue is spacious and provides tons of room to explore, a breath of fresh air from the shoulder-to-shoulder clubbing you’ll find at other spots.

Daylight initially began playing primarily EDM, but with last year’s change in management its vibe has quickly shifted to a Hip-Hop / top 40 vibe. Some of the resident musicians at Daylight include T-Pain, Rick Ross, Saweetie, Jeezy, Morgan Page, and Duke Dumont.  It’s open during Vegas’s summer pool season, which usually begins late March/early April and runs up until Labor Day. 

Pro tip: We have a free guestlist for girls and even ratio parties that includes drink tickets!

TAO Beach at Venetian (Hip Hop / Top 40)

Cabanas and Pool View at Intimate TAO Beach at Venetian Las Vegas

One of the earliest pool parties, Tao Beach has been a staple for dayclubbers for over a decade now. Tao Beach is closed for the 2020 season to under go a multi million dollar renovation – expect Tao Beach to be back in 2021 bigger and better than ever, with a tremendous upgrade to their artist roster as well. Stay tuned!

Bare Pool at The Mirage (Hip Hop/ Top 40)

View of the Pool at Bare Pool Inside Mirage Las Vegas

Located in the Mirage, Bare Pool acts almost like a secret hideaway; to find it, one must trek down a winding pathway through a jungle oasis. Upon arrival, guests will find an intimate pool area where women are allowed to wander topless. Bare offers a more relaxing, chill atmosphere without the wall-to-wall, packed-in feeling of some of the other clubs listed. You’ll find 14,000 square-feet of not one but two luxury dipping pools, a full-service bar, six plasma screens, poolside daybeds, chaise lounge chairs and cabanas. As with many Vegas pool clubs, expect to find a seemingly-endless number of beautiful people, seeing and looking to be seen. 

As you might have guessed, the atmosphere at Bare Pool is a lot more chill and laid-back than that of other dayclubs and pools. If you’re looking for an out-of-control rager, you’ll want to skip Bare. If you’re looking for a place to kick back and chill with friends with some great background music, Bare Pool is the place to be!

Bonus: XS Nightswim at the Wynn (EDM)

Are you a fan of nightclubs? How about pool parties? A few clubs in Las Vegas have combined the two to create the nightswim –  the pool party at night.

The Sunday nightswim at XS is the undisputed king. Featuring dry 80 degree nights, beautiful people, and the biggest DJs in the world, nightswims are a unique experience that are essential to any Vegas trip. XS does not host a day party so your only opportunity to get in the water at the King of Clubs is the Sunday XS nightswim. 

XS nightswim on Sundays is THE best party in Vegas, hosting up to 5,000 people in a gorgeous venue. Party to the beats of DJs and artists such as The Chainsmokers, David Guetta, Diplo, Alesso, Kygo, and Drake. If you’re in Vegas Sunday night, you need to be at this party.


Since the opening of Rehab at the Hard Rock Hotel in 2003, the day-clubbing phenomenon has turned Las Vegas into a 24-hour party paradise.

Of all America’s major cities, only Phoenix and Arizona matches Las Vegas for sunshine. On average, 85% of the hours from dawn until dusk are showered in golden rays meaning it’s always pool weather here. Since the weather is phenomenal, the big hotels all compete to build better and more elaborate spaces for bathing and partying. Caesars’ recently revamped Garden of the Gods complex.

But, since this is Las Vegas, merely splashing around in water is not enough, no matter how cool the pool. In the past 10 years, the non-stop party vibe of Las Vegas has been cranked up a notch with the introduction of the day club. For the real money-no-object VIP experience, book a cabana.
