4. Drai’s Beach Club at Cromwell
Positioned atop The Cromwell on the 11th floor, 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 embraces north-facing views including the Red Rock Mountains in the distance and the Bellagio fountains across the street.
A central pool is flanked by palm trees and a white edifice with pink curtains covering 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, a two-story indoor space facing the dayclub pool, is all shiny black semi-circular booths and a horseshoe DJ station surrounded by columns festooned with postage stamp-sized mirrors.
Drai’s will very often be playing top 40 / hip hop but it 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: Residents at the Crowmwell get free access to the dayclub.

Those seeking a more integrated experience can relax on one of the chaise lounges or day beds that line the 1,200 square-foot main pool.
10. Palms Pool at the Palms
Palms Pool and Dayclub brings entertainment poolside with its special events and decked out party cabanas. Ordinary cabanas just protect you from the sun in between dips in the pool and races to the bathroom, and give you that exclusive feeling of having a bit of canvas and wood in between you and the riff raff — or Riff Raff if that guy shows up. But Palms Pool and Dayclub also includes gaming consoles like Xbox, PS3 and old school NES, so you can ignore other humans even while you’re at a pool party. But the fun doesn’t stop there.
Cabanas and daybeds must be reserved with a food and beverage minimum, but the lounge chairs are first come, first served. The full space also has lily pads available for those willing to brave the sun. And DJs bring the music so you don’t feel obligated to make small talk while you’re wearing a skimpy bathing suit. They’ve also got food to give you an excuse to stay out of the pool without having to admit that the chlorine irritates your bikini wax. One food option is “Atomic” wings, just in case the Vegas weather isn’t hot enough for you. And of course they’ve got plenty of drinks to keep you hydrated, or at least too drunk to realize you’re sweating vodka.
