Some call Encore Beach Club the “happiest place on earth”. After a day at EBC it’d be hard to disagree. EBC’s 50,000 square foot space features lounges, couches, daybeds, cabanas, bungalows, lily pads, 3 pools, a gaming pavilion, a state of the art sound system, the EBC girls, champagne showers, and beautiful people as far as the eye can see.
The layout of EBC is truly what separates this pool party from the others. The pool is always clean, the EDM music is great, the dance floor is easily accessible and food is served (always a bonus). The crowd is usually young and upbeat so partying is elevated to another level of fun and enjoyment.
During the summer, Encore Beach Club turns into EBC at Night, featuring night swims every night. That means you can wear a swimsuit and get into the pool at night!
Found on the 11th floor of The Cromwell, Drai’s Beach Club reigns over what is arguably the busiest intersection in Vegas. During the daytime it’s a beach pool party on steroids; in the evening it morphs into an upscale high-voltage nightclub. The dayclub features north-facing views including the Red Rock Mountains in the distance and the Bellagio fountains located across the street.
The central pool is surrounded by palm trees as a white edifice with pink curtains covers the 15 second-floor cabanas outfitted with HD TVs — but with all the hard bodies dancing to the tunes of a live DJ it’s doubtful anyone will be watching much television. The nightclub is a two-story indoor space facing the dayclub pool. The nightclub is all shiny black with semi-circular booths and a horseshoe DJ station surrounded by columns decorated with postage stamp-sized mirrors.
Drai’s will very often be playing top 40 / hip hop but it always depends on the DJ. On occasion they will bring in EDM DJs such as Quintino and Sidney Samson; on these days you’ll get a mix of hip hop and EDM.
Pro-tip: Hotel guests at the Cromwell get free access to the dayclub.
A sprawling club complex in the heart of North America’s ultimate party city, Marquee is arguably one of the key architects of the Stateside dance music revolution. Split into Marquee Dayclub — a sun-blazed, opulent poolside space open during the Summer season — and Marquee Nightclub, with its three different areas (The Boom Box Room, Library and Main Room), it’s undoubtedly one of the most impressive venues in the US.
Credit for this claim goes to Marquee’s sound and light systems. Marquee boasts a Funktion One sound system with 32,000-watt subwoofers and a state-of-the-art audio-visual stage set-up designed by Steve Liberman. The venue looks and sounds spectacular enough to wow the high rollers that have been known to visit the venue.
The dayclub features three-story Bungalow Lofts, complete with cabanas, living quarters, grand Las Vegas pool cabanas with infinity pools and a party deck on top. The place gets wild.
A privileged playground for partygoers and celebrities, Wet Republic at MGM Grand combines the best elements of Vegas nightlife with supreme poolside amenities to create the ultimate pool party experience. The unrivaled hot spot delivers a variety of experiences for its guests, whether they want to relax over cocktails in the poolside lounge, reside in exclusive VIP bungalows, or bask under the sun in the party scene on the main pool deck or cabanas.
The 54,500-square-foot pool at the MGM Grand just underwent a $3.574 million remodel to 18,400 square feet of the space. Last year, the pool debuted an expanded DJ booth, an upgraded LED display, extended bar and new furniture. The latest renovations added six new VIP bungalows equipped with furnishings, TVs and misting fans all equipped with three private plunge pools. New restrooms and shower facilities as well as an extended shade area have also been added.
Resident DJs and artists include Tiesto, Zedd, Martin Garrix, Steve Aoki, Tyga, Afrojack, and many more.
On weekends, The NoMad Pool transforms into JEMAA – The NoMad Pool Party. A seductive and energetic daytime experience, JEMAA features a renowned cocktail program, table side service, and a roster of top-tier DJs and artists delivering nuanced music programming — including a tropical house vibe on Sundays.
The gorgeous pool is the center of it all surrounded by daybeds, cabanas, and bungalows. Guest will also discover two bars as well as a completed covered area setup for dining. Enjoy a star studded lineup of DJs all summer as the luxurious pool is a tranquil escape from the neon, glitter, heat, and sweat that accompanies The Strip.
This garden-like oasis, inspired by the Majorelle Gardens of Morocco, features casual fare, expertly-crafted cocktails, and a robust selection of wines. Don’t forget to inquire about the cocktail fountain as JEMMA is known for their award winning food and an elite cocktail list.
Daylight Beach Club (DBC) made it’s debut Summer 2013 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, and since then has gone on to become one of the hottest dayparties in Las Vegas. Daylight features 70 daybeds, 25 cabanas, 6 LED screens, a 5,000 sq foot pool. The venue is spacious which offers tons of room to roam around and explore.
Like Light nightclub at the Mandalay, Daylight initially started out playing primarily EDM but with last years change in management Daylight has shifted to a Hip Hop / top 40 vibe.

When the weather heats up, TAO Beach offers a sizzling hot daytime experience in Las Vegas. By day, guests can secure a reservation to lounge poolside in one of 12 luxury cabanas that features such amenities as air-conditioning, high definition plasma screen televisions with gaming consoles, WiFi and customized mini bars.

TAO Beach always plays a mix of top 40 / hip hop / open format music. Bottle service here is also fairly reasonably priced as far as dayclubs go.
Bare Pool is located at the Mirage, with the trek to get there winding through a jungle oasis that feels like a secret hideaway. Upon arrival, you’ll find an intimate pool area where women are free to wonder around topless if they choose. Bare offers a more relaxing, chill atmosphere without the wall-to-wall packed in feeling of some of the other clubs. You’ll find 14,000 square feet that includes two luxury dipping pools, a full service bar, six plasma screens, poolside daybeds, chaise lounge chairs and cabanas. As with many of the Vegas pool clubs, expect to find an endless number of beautiful people, scantily clad and looking to be seen.
The atmosphere at Bare Pool is a lot more chill and laid back than that of the other dayclubs / pools. If you’re looking for a rager, you’ll want to skip Bare. If you’re looking for a place to lie down, chill, hang out with friends with some background music, Bare Pool is your spot!
Are you a fan of nightclubs? What 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 balmy 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 nighswim.
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, Arizona, matches Las Vegas for sunshine. On average, 85% of the hours from dawn until dusk are bathed in golden rays – it’s always pool weather here, in other words, and the big hotels all vie to build better and more elaborate spaces for bathing and partying. Caesars’ recently revamped Garden of the Gods complex, for instance, has no less than seven.
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.
