Which Dayclubs and Pool Parties in Las Vegas play EDM / Electronic Music / House?
Electronic Dance Music has taken Vegas by storm. While there are actually fewer EDM pool parties than Hip Hop parties, the hottest dayclubs in Vegas all feature the top DJs in the world. If you’re looking for electronic / house music – you’ve come to the right city. Vegas is THE new EDM mecca. Period.
1. Encore Beach Club at Wynn Encore
Some call Encore Beach Club the “happiest place on earth”. After a day there you’d be hard pressed 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.
EBC is also host to a special Thursday night pool party, known as Thursday Nightswim at Surrender. If you’re in Vegas on a Thursday we highly recommend you check out the nightswim.
Resident DJs for 2016 include DJ Snake, Dillon Francis, Alesso, David Guetta, Diplo, Kaskade, Skrillex, Zedd, RL Grime, Avicii, Martin Solveig, and Flosstradamus.
2. Wet Republic at MGM Grand
A privileged playground for partygoers, glitterati, and celebrities, Wet Republic at MGM Grand combines the best elements of Vegas nightlife with supreme poolside amenities to create the ultimate daylife experience. The unrivaled hot spot delivers a variety of experiences for its guests, whether they want to chill over cocktails in the poolside lounge, relax in exclusive VIP bungalows, or bask 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 for 2016 include 3LAU, Tiesto, Steve Aoki, Chainsmokers, DVBBS, Martin Garrix, Nervo, Krewella, Afrojack, Calvin Harris, and Ingrosso.
3. Marquee Dayclub at The Cosmopolitan
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 daily during the Spring 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.
Its sound and light impress, too: boasting a Funktion One soundsystem with 32,000-watt subwoofers and a state-of-the-art audio-visual stage set-up designed by Steve Liberman, Marquee 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 cabana, living quarters, grand Las Vegas pool cabanas with infinity pools and a party deck on top.
The Marquee Dayclub 2016 summer line up includes DJs such as Dash Berlin, Thomas Jack, Cash Cash, Cedric Gervais, and Andrew Rayel.
4. Drai’s Beach Club at The 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. Definitely check the line up before deciding to come to Drai’s, especially if you’re specifically looking for EDM music.
Pro-tip: Residents at the Cromwell get free access to the dayclub.
5. Foxtail Pool Club at the SLS
Situated at the heart of SLS Las Vegas, Foxtail Pool Club’s expansive pool deck serves as an amenity to hotel guests, home of day and nightlife experiences, and a special events space where both programmed and private events can take place with a sophisticated splash.
The pool is open during the week for lounging. Dayparties are scheduled for Fridays and Saturdays. Be sure to check the Discotech app to see who’s spinning – Foxtail pool club has historically had a more EDM focused lineup but it looks like 2016’s lineup will feature more Hip Hop artists. If you’re looking for EDM DJs we definitely recommend checking the weekly line up on the Discotech app!
6. Surrender Nightswim at the Encore
Once a week on Thursday nights, Surrender nightclub hosts EBC at Night. Nightswims are some of the most exciting, wild and fun events in Vegas. If you can, we highly recommend hitting up either this nightswim or the Sunday nightswim at XS. Nightswims only happen during the summer when it’s warm enough to get in the water at night. Swimsuits are optional – you can go in regular club wear if you prefer. But we recommend getting wet and wild – there’s no party quite like a nightswim.
7. XS Nightswim at the Wynn
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 such as Avicii, David Guetta, Zedd, Robin Schulz, Skrillex. If you’re in Vegas Sunday night you need to be at this party.
