Rick Ross defines Miami rap. He was in the national spotlight with “Hustlin'”, the platinum introduction to a uniquely larger-than-life character with gruffly delivered tales about the spoils and pitfalls of drug trafficking. The rapper became not only a hip-hop fixture but an unlikely pop star as well. Debut smash Port of Miami, and all nine of Ross’ subsequent studio albums, including the Grammy-nominated God Forgives, I Don’t (2012) and Port of Miami 2 (2019), have entered the Top Ten of the Billboard 200, promoted with high-rolling, RIAA-certified singles such as “The Boss” and “Aston Martin Music.”
Through his own label, Maybach Music — the name of which has been imprinted on virtually every Ross recording since 2009 — Ross has boosted the careers of fellow artists such as Gunplay, Wale, and Meek Mill. His multitude of guest verses have likewise supported hits by the likes of DJ Khaled (beginning with “We Takin’ Over”), Kanye West (“Monster”), Maybach’s French Montana (“Pop That”), Ace Hood (“Bugatti”), and Chris Brown (“New Flame”).
In 2019 Rick Ross released his highly anticipated album, Port of Miami 2. The sequel to his debut continued his career-long streak of Top Ten albums and was his most personal recording yet, reflecting upon the death of longtime associate and manager Black Bo and a personal health scare, two major setbacks he had experienced the previous year. The album’s Drake-assisted single “Gold Roses” scored a nomination for Best Rap Song in the 2020 Grammy Awards.

Anyone who’s lived in Vegas and worked in the service industry knows that the holy grail of service jobs for females is as cocktail servers at the summer dayclub pool parties. The ladies who secure jobs at these establishments can make six-figure salaries for less than six months of three-days-a-week, eight-hours-a-day work. In addition, it is widely known that male customers in Vegas will tend to spend more money in the presence of attractive females, so it’s just good business for the venues to stock their services staff with eye candy, and the corresponding server tip pools for them can be sizable at the end of a high-demand day.
As a result, these dayclub bartender and table server positions are the most competitive, most selective, and most coveted out of any casino front-lines customer service job position offered in Vegas, and the best venues thus have the luxury of choosing from an endless candidate pool of the most attractive women in the world. And because the women at the dayclubs have to wear bikinis in broad daylight and show skin to a much further extent than their nightclub server counterparts do, they are usually a cut above in terms of physical appearance as well as demeanor and personality.
It’s a consensus among most of us Vegas service industry insiders that the most attractive female service staff works over at Encore Beach Club (shown above), one of the best pool parties in Vegas 7+ years running. This assessment is backed up by anecdotal evidence from numerous women who have participated in annual tryouts for casino pool party service jobs; many claim that tryouts for EBC are both the most well-attended and the most demanding, owing in large part to the higher-spending clientele that EBC attracts. The Wet Republic staff (shown below) is rated a close second to EBC, followed by Marquee Dayclub, Daylight, and Drai’s Beach Club.
But don’t take our word for it. You can do some, ahem, “research” yourself on your next trip out to Vegas. Use the Discotech app to search Vegas pool parties by the specific dates you’ll be in town, and then buy tickets, sign up for guest lists, or even reserve tables if you’re feeling super-fancy. The app event info refreshes daily, pulling from various Las Vegs entertainment online resources including the official websites of the clubs themselves, so it’s always current, accurate, and in the know. Pro tip: the bigger the featured performer that day, the better the odds of the venue having all of their “A” Team servers working, and the better the eye candy for you to admire.

In a town known for unclear dress codes — you can dine at a fine restaurant or attend a top-tier show in jeans and a nice T-shirt — it might be hard to know what to wear, what to bring and what outfit fits best with the club you’re attending. Funny enough, the stricter dress codes are being enforced in what might seem the most unlikely of places: at Las Vegas’ risque pool parties.
MGM Grand’s Wet Republic require women to wear a swimsuit with a sundress or wrap and encourages them to do their hair and wear heels. Men should sport board shorts, a T-shirt and sandals or flip-flops; undershirts, cut-off shorts yet athletic gear like gym shorts, sneakers and sports jerseys are forbidden.
The same goes for Encore Beach Club, where baggy clothes, chains and see-through swimwear will get you no further than the door. And don’t expect to get into Marquee Dayclub at the Cosmopolitan or Tao Beach at the Venetian without similar pool-appropriate attire and footwear to keep you covered as you navigate through the hotel.
However inside the club, guests are free to keep clothing to a minimum, provided they meet the requirements. Tiny bikinis and Speedos may spice things up, but don’t expect a string-and-pasties ensemble or mesh male thong to qualify as swimwear.
“Guests have an expectation of a five-star experience. Our bungalows, cabanas and lily pads go for a high premium, and that sets the attitude for what the people paying for them expect and how guests should behave,” said Pauly Freedman, director of operations for Encore Beach Club. “That includes dressing appropriately. We want people to have fun, and we encourage it, but we’re at the Wynn, not down the street. Dress to impress.”
Indeed, pool clubs are enforcing dress codes in a scene that’s more “ultra lounge” than “lounge by the pool.” As with the clubs’ indoor nighttime counterparts, a stroll past a pool club entrance on a weekend afternoon often reveals long lines snaking back into the hotel, with guests waiting as long as an hour to pay premium cover charges (which average about $30 for women and $50 for men) to get past the door. Inside, pricey cocktails and even pricier daybed and cabana rentals await, but so do star-powered DJ sets and raucous dance parties. For many, it’s a price tag worth the experience.
The dayclub pool party trend evolved out of the popular nightclub scene of the late ’90s, emerging in the early ’00s with upscale pool clubs like Moorea Beach at Mandalay Bay (which also has a strict dress code, despite being top-optional or “toptional”).
Despite the upscale atmosphere, you don’t have to invest in a designer swimsuit or risk slipping in a pair of stilettos to partake in pool club festivities. Like many of the Strip’s nightclubs, the dress codes aren’t usually on display but exist largely to set parameters for what is and isn’t appropriate rather than to screen guests for chicness and style. Still, consider a quick phone call to the venue or go online beforehand to check up on dress codes and cover charges to ensure that your time in line isn’t spent in vain.
“If you’re going to a formal event, that doesn’t mean you have to have a tie or tuxedo, but there are certain things that look out of place, and the same thinking can be applied to our pool clubs,” said David Long, the director of security for Tao Beach and Marquee Dayclub.
His hard-line concern is that guests are covered and wearing footwear as they migrate between the hotel and the pool out of respect to other patrons.
Though pool personnel largely have to deal with guests being underdressed, they do sometimes encounter the opposite problem.
“We have a lot of guys who show up in suits,” said Rebeccah Gannon, director of guest services for Angel Management Group, which handles Wet Republic. “I think they’re dressing to impress the girls, which I get, because who doesn’t like a guy in a suit? But that’s not exactly proper pool attire.”
She encourages guests to have fun with the dress code and show off their personal style, but adds that there is one must-have fashion accessory for this summer’s pool party circuit: a valid photo ID.

In December of last year Hakkasan Group purchased a controlling stake in Light Group and 22 of its properties including Light Nightclub and Daylight Dayclub. Already responsible for MGM’s Hakkasan and Wet Republic properties, as well as Caesar’s brand new superclub Omnia, Hakkasan Group aims to differentiate Light from its other properties by focusing on a diversely-curated lineup rather than mainstream superstars. With that in mind, Daylight at the Mandalay bay is introducing the Sundown concept, the Strip’s first deep house day party / sunset party.
The new weekly party, to be held every Sunday at Daylight, is the brainchild of brand development VP Zee Zandi, marketing manager Pearce Cleaveland and renowned producer Nic Fanciulli, who plans to bring a lot of his underground DJ friends along for the ride. Inspired by Ibiza’s celebrated sunset parties, Daylight is ready to pair top, underground house music talent with the vibrant natural wonder Las Vegas displays at each day’s end. Beginning with Guy Gerber on April 26, some of the most revered alternative DJs will take the stage every Sunday sunset, crafting a visual and harmonious experience.
This party starts at 2 PM in the afternoon and runs until 11 PM at night. We have a free girl’s guestlist as well as a free or discounted even ratio guest list for Sundown at Daylight. To get on the guestlist or book bottle service, download the Discotech mobile app.
Sundown’s current lineup:
- 4/26/15 – Guy Gerber
- 5/3/15 – Nic Fanciulli
- 5/10/15 – Spacebyrdz
- 5/17/15 – Disclosure
- 5/24/15 – Danny Tenaglia
