Suns out, guns out.

1. Kaos Dayclub at the Palms (Hip Hop/EDM)

Composed by award-winning design firm Friedmutter Group Las Vegas, the multi-level 73,000 square foot Kaos dayclub offers [two] luxurious main pools, numerous side pools and 39 unique cabanas (most with their own private pool). The focal point of the dayclub is a towering 65-foot bronze sculpture by Damien Hirst entitled “Demon with Bowl” (2014), which rises up from the center of one of the two main pools. Boasting the highest number of pools of any resort in North America, KAOS dayclub offers a luxe Greek-inspired oasis that can be found nowhere else in Las Vegas. KAOS will seamlessly blend the nightclub and dayclub experiences via a massive retractable glass wall/door that allows clubgoers to easily move between the indoor and outdoor venues. In addition, the nightclub has a rotating 360-degree DJ booth that allows talent to play to both indoor and outdoor crowds, while the dayclub has its own separate entertainment stage in order to provide for multiple performance locations. The dayclub can also accommodate up to [5,000] guests and incorporates a [seasonal] dome cover that will allow it to operate on a year-around basis. Kaos won’t always have a hip hop artist though – some days will be hip hop artists (Cardi B, Travis Scott, G-Eazy, J Balvin) and some days will be DJs. Before hitting up Kaos we’d recommend checking out the schedule!

2. Encore Beach Club at Wynn Encore (EDM)

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.

During the summer, Encore Beaach Club turns into EBC at night, featuring nightswims every night. That means you can wear a swimsuit and get into the pool at night!

3. Drai’s Beach Club at Cromwell (Hip Hop)

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 Cromwell get free access to the dayclub.

4. Marquee Dayclub at The Cosmopolitan (EDM)

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.

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.

As with many of the Vegas pool clubs, expect to find an endless number of beautiful people, scantily clad and looking to be seen.

Drai’s Beach Club Dubai (DXB)

Open on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, the pool club features beds, cabanas and even private jacuzzi’s, with each day is dedicated to a different activation. On Tuesdays, head down for 11am to enjoy their ‘Hot Mess’ ladies day, while on Friday, expect a day-to-night champagne spray party complete with spray countdown, urban setlist and an A list star or two.

Nikki Beach Dubai

The luxury beachside destination features in-water loungers, Jacuzzis, inflatables and spans across an impressive site on the Pearl Jumeirah that leads out onto the beach. If you’re hungry, you can order one of their signature sushi and ceviche boats, which arrives, as you’d expect, on a wooden boat. It’s a bold swimwear affair, with dancer, musicians and resident DJs.

Summersalt Dubai

The only way that you could beat this beach club’s view of the Burj Al Arab is if you hopped on a boat. The Jumeirah Al Naseem spot is quite literally under the shadow of the Burj, but don’t worry, it’ won’t stop your tan game. The luxury club has a white sand beach, infinity pool and music that’s just loud enough to add atmosphere. Go in the morning if you want to read a book, or head there in the afternoon if you’re after a livelier vibe. The food is a Mediterranean mix with a heavy Italian influence, and it’s only steps away from your lounger if you’re wanting to tuck in midway through your tanning session.

There’s an infinity pool, 1km of prime beachfront real estate, and a restaurant and bar serving up Provencal cuisine and interesting cocktails. Don’t mind if we do…

It’s a more chilled spot for topping up your tan, with two value ladies’ day deals every

Andreeas, Habtoor Grand, Dubai Marina, daily 9am to sunset. Tel: (04) 408 4400. andreeas.ae

Rehab Beach Club Closing this Season

After 15 years of afternoon debauchery, big name deejays, bikini-clad ladies, and fun in the sun, Rehab Beach Club calls it quits. The pool party at the Hard Rock Hotel has one last long weekend hurrah this weekend – October 14 is the final party.

Rehab got its start back in 2004 while the resort converted its Baby’s nightclub into Body English and the idea of extending the party from night to day took hold. Over the years, the perhaps most famous pool party in Las Vegas attracted reality stars such as Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton, actress Lindsay Lohan, singer Justin Bieber, rapper Puff Daddy, former NBA star Dennis Rodman, and even Shaquille O’Neal, the NBA star who’s opening a chicken restaurant across the street, who brought his alter ego DJ Diesel to the decks in August. At its height, the pool party even had Rehab: Party at the Hard Rock Hotel, a reality television docudrama on TruTV, from 2008 to 2010.

Virgin Group founder Richard Branson and an investment group that includes Bosworth Hospitality Partners and investment firm Juniper Capital bought out the resort on the east side of Las Vegas in April. Changes to the rock-n-roll-themed resort take place through the end of 2019, when the Virgin name takes over.

Nikki Beach Dubai Season Opening Party

Fans of Nikki Beach, listen up, the world-famous beach club brand is reopening its Dubai branch this weekend (Saturday September 1) after a summer break.

It may still be pretty toasty outside, but that won’t stop us donning our finest swimmers and getting ready to welcome the winter beach club season in.

On Saturday (September 1), Nikki Beach in Pearl Jumeira will be hosting La Vie en Rose – the first of the season’s Saturday brunch offerings.

Make a booking and you’ll be able to lounge by the awesome pool and on the beach – which has stunning views out to sea – all day long from 11am until 9pm. The brunch package itself is Dhs265 for soft drinks, Dhs395 for grape and hops, and Dhs465 for grape, hops and shorts.

And to really kick of the beach club season, the venue’s hosting a Deluxe Pool Party on Friday September 21. The massive party runs from 11am until 9pm, and promises to be a “Hawaiian-themed event like no other”. Beats will be provided by Nikki Beach’s resident DJs, while the pool will be packed with fun inflatables. There will also be Hawaiian dishes to nibble on, too. That calls for a new swimsuit, we’d say.

Meanwhile, ladies, gather your pals and head down to the swanky beach club on a Tuesday, where for Dhs130 you’ll get six drinks and a bed to sunbathe on all day. Get there early though, as it’s on a first come, first served basis.

And finally, if you fancy something a little more sedate, book in for the Nikki Beach Treat. Until the end of September you’ll get a two-hour signature treatment from Nikki Spa, a healthy lunch at Café Nikki and access to the pool and beach for just Dhs699.

We’ll see you at the beach.

Daily, 11am-9pm. Nikki Beach Dubai, Pearl Jumeira (04 376 6162).

Best Gay Pool Party in Vegas – Electric Safari @ Flamingo Beach Club

It might not be Pride month in Las Vegas, but the Flamingo’s beach club has gotten in on the summer celebration anyway with the biggest gay/lesbian pool party in Las Vegas. The resort pool recently unveiled the summer lineup for its LGBT-focused party Electric Safari, which will feature an assortment of DJs from the techno, house and LGBT dance worlds. Because why should we wait until October to celebrate?

Launched in May in partnership with Artificial People Las Vegas Presents, the nighttime swim soiree takes place every Thursday at the Flamingo Go Pool beginning at 9 p.m. The cover is $5 for hotel guests and Nevada residents and $10 for non-residents. It’s one of the few LGBT dayclub events actually happening on the Las Vegas Strip, taking over the 15-acre tropical retreat with lagoons, a waterfall and three sparkling pools.

Bust out the Speedos and sexy safari-themed gear when LA’s Dan De Leon takes over the decks on June 28, or when San Francisco Pride regular Dominic Pacifico brings his signature mixes to the pool on July 12. Together, Leon and Pacifico comprise DJ duo Krusade—an outfit with 30 years of deep, dancefloor-ready bangers and remixes of club-favorite artists like Timbaland and Nelly Furtado.

Your Cali friends might be making you jealous with all of their pride selfies for now, but you get to celebrate poolside all summer long.
