While their rise to fame was somewhere between fast and meteoric, the Atlanta trio Migos are steeped in the Southern tradition of hip-hop groups, having come together over their shared love of acts like the Hot Boys and OutKast. Members Offset, Quavo, and Takeoff, who are all related, grew up together and first started making music in 2009 under the name Polo Club, with the name Migos becoming official in 2010. In 2012, they released the mixtape No Label, which featured the cut “Bando,” a regional hit that caught the attention of producer Zaytoven and Kevin Lee, aka Coach K, the manager who launched the careers of Gucci Mane and Young Jeezy. The year 2013 was a whirlwind, as June saw the group drop their Young Rich N*ggas mixtape, which featured the instant hit “Versace.” That same year, Coach K got them on the Hot 107.9 Birthday Bash, a popular Atlanta festival where Migos came across their newest fan, Drake. The rapper added a verse to the “Versace” remix and put the cut on his 2013 album Nothing Was the Same.
In 2018, Migos released a sequel LP, Culture II, which featured production by Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Metro Boomin, and more, as well as guests 21 Savage, Drake, Gucci Mane, Nicki Minaj, and Cardi B. The set topped the Billboard 200 and spawned the platinum hits “MotorSport,” “Stir Fry,” “Walk It Talk It,” and “Narcos.” In the lead-up to the third Culture installment in 2019, the trio issued a series of singles, including “Pure Water” with Mustard, “Position to Win,” and “Stripper Bowl” from the label compilation Quality Control: Control the Streets, Vol. 2. In February 2020, Migos released “Give No F**ks” as the first track off Culture III. You can see Migos perform their hits at Drai’s Nightclub in Las Vegas. You can find the list of upcoming events at Drai’s Nightclub here.

Future is not only at the top of the rap world, he’s creating his own genre.
Future is one of the hottest American rappers of the recent times; he has everything going for him–the fan following, the music, the sound and the chartbusting albums. He has been dubbed by Billboard as the ‘Future of the Music’. And why not, for he officially became the first ever artist to knock out his own album (FUTURE) from the number 1 spot to replace it with yet another album of his (HNDRXX). His most recent EP Save Me was a follow up to his highly anticipated album The WZRD. The album was everything a rap fan wanted and included features from Travis Scott, Young Thug & Gunna.
With this, Future became the only musician in the Billboard’s history to ever debut two back-to-back #1 albums. Interestingly, it was his cousin who first introduced him to music and rapping. Little did Future know that his fate would be sealed and so would be his stage name for life. Since 2010, Future has released several mixtapes and albums, each of which have charted to the top spot. In 2015, Future hit it big internationally with his chartbursting album ‘DS2’ and super hit mixtape ‘What A Time To Be Alive’. With a universal influence and omnipresent chart dominance, Future surely seems to be the ‘Future’ of music. You can find Future perform live in Las Vegas at Drai’s Nightclub. You can check out the upcoming events at Drai’s Nightclub here.
See a full list of upcoming Future shows here.
Without further ado, Future’s top 5 tracks of all time:

4. Future – Where Ya At ft. Drake
3. Future – Low Life Ft. The Weeknd
2. Future – Life is Good ft. Drake

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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
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!
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.

DJ Pauly D has inked a two-year residency with Las Vegas’ Drai’s Beachclub, returning to its famous rooftop pool for more than 25 dates a year. He joins fellow residents Showtek and A-Trak.
“Last year, DJ Pauly D was one of the best artists we had on our roster, and we couldn’t be happier to have him back,” director of marketing Dustin Drai is quoted in a press release. “His energy and excitement on stage really took our beachclub to a whole new level. He has taken his craft from just being a DJ to being a true entertainer that people want to come see. As Pauly would say, ‘This summer is going to be a movie.'”
“Drai’s Beachclub is the ultimate Las Vegas pool party,” Pauly D is quoted. “It has a vibe like no other. I’m excited to extend my residency with them and continue to be a part of the Drai’s family. Proud to call it my Las Vegas home. Yeah buddy!”
Pauly D’s residency kicks off at Drai’s Beach Club Saturday, March 16, with dates announced through early September. Tickets are on sale now. Check the full list of announced dates below, use the Discotech app to sign up for guestlist, book tables, or buy tickets to his shows!

Las Vegas has been making noise in the music world in recent years thanks to an update of its entertainment model. The Strip’s resident headliners have gotten younger and more relevant, with several different pop artists proving you don’t have to be a legacy act to fill a big theater throughout the year. Gwen Stefani just debuted at Zappos Theater, and Lady Gaga will do the same at Park Theater in December.
But there’s a different type of headliner that’s being overlooked—chart-topping artists who typically don’t get categorized with their fellow Strip stars. They’re selling out a smaller but still big entertainment venue, and they’re as musically relevant as the others—quite cutting-edge, in fact. These are the residents at Drai’s Nightclub and no, they’re not DJs. They’re the biggest names in hip-hop and R&B, and they’re performing full concerts on a weekly basis.
At the moment, there’s no name bigger than Migos. Even among Drai’s stellar resident roster of rappers (Big Sean, Future, G-Eazy, Rae Sremmurd, T.I., Wiz Khalifa and newest additions Pusha T and Meek Mill), the ubiquitous Georgia trio of Offset, Takeoff and Quavo stands out. Migos didn’t just take over hip-hop with viral single “Bad and Boujee” in late 2016. As Pitchfork put it, Migos “infiltrated the mainstream without going pop; instead, pop had gone Migos.” The group reached a new level of cultural saturation in May, when Donald Glover, Kenan Thompson and Chris Redd portrayed them in a riotous Saturday Night Live sketch called “Friendos.” If you missed it, hit YouTube immediately.
In the past week alone, Migos won the Best Group Award (and performed current hit singles “Stir Fry” and “Walk It Talk It”) at the BET Awards and snagged the Vanguard Award at the ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Awards gala. Sprawling January album Culture II—its 24 tracks clock in around 105 minutes—has been hailed as an experimental evolution of the Migos sound, and if that isn’t enough output for you, there’s also a constant stream of guest appearances. Two of the year’s most epic hip-hop tracks contain direct Migos contributions and even more influence: Glover’s “This Is America” (as Childish Gambino) and “Apesh*t,” the lead single from Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s surprise album, Everything Is Love.
Next month, Migos will kick off a combo tour with Drake that promises to be one of the hottest music events in the country throughout the summer and fall, even though it’s a more expensive ticket ($189 vs. $178) than the Beyoncé-Jay On the Run II tour, according to a recently released TickPick list.
That demand makes Migos’ shows at Drai’s an even more significant experience. After all, isn’t the current Vegas headliner model based on the opportunity to see favorite artists who can sell out arena-sized facilities in a more intimate and exclusive environment?
Which dates are Migos performing at Drai’s Las Vegas and Drai’s Beach Club?
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.

Liquid Pool |Aria
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.
Victor Drai has managed what seems unattainable in VegasVille. The nightclub icon has maintained his mystique over two decades while operating in the same hotel, surviving several ownership changes and a move from the cellar to the penthouse.
Dubbed Drai’s After Dark, the chic nightlife hideaway at The Cromwell notched its 20th anniversary on Sunday night. Dressed loosely in a white shirt, jeans and navy-blue jacket, the club’s founder and deacon accepted a Key to the Strip from County Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani (impressive) and a hug and handshake from Michael Gaughan (even more impressive).
An icon among resort operators who today owns South Point hotel-casino, Gaughan owned The Cromwell in 1997 when it was known as Barbary Coast. Drai’s opened that year, a then-curious pairing of high-end restaurant and pulsating nightclub underneath street level on the Strip. Drai’s quickly developed a reputation for randy behavior that stretched until dawn, helping establish the late-night, nightclub culture in Las Vegas.
Among other distinctions, Drai’s was one of the first clubs to charge premium prices not only for cocktails and bottle service but for bottled water ($7 in the late-1990s, if memory serves). Club-goers often spilled onto the Strip at 4 a.m., wincing under what was known as “God’s Flashlight.” The activity was often reckless, but Drai the businessman was sharp and smart, turning a robust profit and engineering a groundbreaking partnership with Steve Wynn to develop Tryst and XS at Wynn/Encore.
After a fleeting but profitable three-year partnership, Wynn eventually bought Drai out of those clubs in 2010. But Drai continues to thrive high atop the corner of Flamingo Road and the Strip.
Holding his commemorative key, Drai said he has not felt that single epiphany that made him realize he’d made it as a top nightclub figure in Vegas.
“I don’t think that way,” said the Moroccan-born Drai, who turns 70 next month. “I’m always moving. I’m not looking back, and I’m really not looking too far ahead. I am in the present. If you do things right, good things will happen. And even when you fall, especially in this business, you need to get up.”
“I don’t think of success or failure. I just think of the doing.”
No doubt of that. With its 70,000-square-foot nightclub space, Drai’s Nightclub remains a coveted destination for nightlife dwellers, offering indoor and outdoor enclaves high atop on the roof of The Cromwell. During the day, partygoers dance away the Las Vegas Summer at Drais Beach Club. The club offers 150 VIP tables, dazzling LED screens and, eight pools, and 10 real palm trees that stand 35 feet high. Drai’s reps have frequently, and cheekily, thanked Wynn for developing the Fountains of Bellagio, in full splendor from the club’s pool deck.
Drai’s live entertainment has kept pace, too. The list of headliners in residency in the Drai’s Live series have included Chris Brown, Trey Songz, G-Eazy, Jeremih, Migos, Lil Wayne, Big Sean, Wiz Khalifa and Rae Sremmurd.
Drai has pulled back his schedule and allowed his top-level executives to run Drai’s at The Cromwell. Those who joined Chris G. in honoring Drai at the club on Sunday included Drai’s son, Dustin; Drai’s After Hours General Manager Marc Snanoudj; Drai’s Las Vegas managing partner Brian Affronti; and president of Drai’s Management Group Michael Gruber.
This group will lead Drai’s into the next nightclub frontier, whatever that might be.
“The team I have is like family. They don’t need too much out of me,” Drai said. “We have changed with the times. Whatever the next trend is, we will find it.”
