What are the best LA Pool Parties in 2015?

Whether you’re the avid partier or just looking to have a little fun in the sun, LA’s endless summer provides for some of the hottest people at the trendiest rooftop pools. Pool season sets off with a myriad of parties at party-friendly hotels around town. Whether you’re looking to lounge, dance, or just have a drink and listen to music by the pool, make sure to plan in advance by either arriving early, getting a room at the hotel, or reserving a daybed or cabana with bottle service.

Here’s a curated list of the best pool parties in LA 2015…

Vibe: Lounge, drink and people watch

Shed your inhibitions at this stunning rooftop pool, overlooking West Hollywood and the Hollywood Hills on one side and downtown LA to the beaches on the other. Andaz’s stunning rooftop pool – one of the few rooftop pools in Los Angeles, is a sexy, sky-lit sanctuary for relaxing in the sunshine or enjoying the hip West Hollywood scene. Dive in for a refreshing swim or laze on a lounge chair and sip a delicious cocktail as you take in the panoramic views of Los Angeles. Cool down and enjoy some privacy in a cabana with umbrellas for your pleasure. Join the beautiful people by the poolside bar for light fare and refreshing cocktails at The Sundeck. Enjoy delights eats right from the RH kitchen.

SkyBar at The Mondrian

Vibe: Dance, party, see and be seen

Boasting some of the finest views of Los Angeles, Skybar is an open air, ivy-covered pavilion perched above the Pool at Mondrian Los Angeles. Having been the spot for the hottest nightlife and bar scenes from the day it opened, Skybar’s newly re-imagined design brings a fresh approach to this iconic space. A chic poolside lounge by day, Skybar provides an idyllic oasis to take in the sun and enjoy impeccably fresh cocktails. When the sun sets, the pulse of Skybar beats even louder, stirring a seductive energy, aroused by world-class DJ’s and Hollywood glamour. To book daybed or table packages for your group, visit here.

The Rooftop at The Standard, Downtown LA offers stunning, panoramic views of Downtown Los Angeles and the mountains beyond. The Rooftop features a heated swimming pool, red AstroTurf deck, dance floor, nightly DJs, bar, outdoor fireplace, waterbed pods, sculptured topiary and a Biergarten.

The Standard Hollywood

Vibe: Retro, fun, and “hot”

It doesn’t get much more Hollywood than this: blue astroturf, ping pong, power lunches, sun bathers, and the best people watching this side of the 101. The Standard Pool is a bona fide icon. Pool access is reserved for hotel guests. Day passes are available for purchase based upon availability.

Tropicana Pool at The Roosevelt Hollywood

Vibe: Day party, night swim, actual swimming, vintage

Although the Roosevelt’s day parties are legendary, it’s night swims are historic. Located at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, Tropicana offers pool toys and a pleasant atmosphere, featuring scattered ottomans among fire pits and palm trees. (Partygoers tend to actually go swimming, in droves.) Plan to arrive after midnight, enjoy a cocktail from one of the two full bars and listen to resident DJs like Chris Holmes or Will Crimes. They usually can be found behind turntables spinning funky indie tunes, though you’ll often see guest DJs such as Elijah Wood. Oh and also, when your friends ask you what you did last weekend, you can just say: “Uhh I was at The Roosevelt” (*drops the mic and walks away*). To book daybed or table packages for your group, visit here.

The Montage Beverly Hills

Vibe: Posh, cool and relaxing

Montage-BH-Cabana

As a guest of Montage Beverly Hills, you can enjoy access to this rooftop oasis, complete with a saline swimming pool and whirlpool. Private poolside cabanas, The Rooftop Grill and lush landscaping are set against the backdrop of panoramic views of the Beverly Hills cityscape and the Hollywood hills. If you’re not a guest, Rooftop Cabanas are available for rent. Cabanas are serviced from 9:00 a.m. until Sunset and can accommodate up to 6 guests. All cabanas include an LCD Flat Screen TV, National & Local Newspapers & Magazines, Complimentary WiFi, Evian Misters, Coola Suncare, Montage Bathrobes (upon request), Fresh Fruit Bowl and Bottled Water.

New Dayparty “Sundown” to Debut at Daylight on 4/26/15

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.

Kaskade in Las Vegas – EBC & XS 2015

If you’re planning a Vegas trip and you’re looking to catch Kaskade, you’ll definitely want to plan ahead. Kaskade has a 2015 residency at XS (nightclub) and Encore Beach Club (dayclub). Both of these are super popular clubs and Kaskade always draws a full house when he spins.

Seeing Kaskade – Bottle Service

You have a couple different options to get into the club – bottle service, guestlist, and tickets. Bottle service will be the most expensive option (but also probably the most fun). As a rule of thumb, you can get about 3 people in per bottle for XS and EBC. Bottles at XS start at $600 before tax and tip, bottles at EBC start at about $700 before tax and tip. If you’re looking to get table service we can definitely help you out – please visit our Encore Beach Club Bottle Service or XS Bottle Service page and fill out the form to get a quote.

Seeing Kaskade – Guestlist

Alternatively, we have a girl’s guestlist for XS and EBC which you can sign up for by downloading our mobile app. The guestlist for XS closes at 11:30, the guestlist for EBC closes at 12 noon. If you can rally your girls and make sure to get to the club at least 30 minutes before it closes this could be a good option.

Seeing Kaskade – Tickets

Your third option is to buy EBC tickets or XS tickets. The presale tickets pretty much guarantee that you’ll get in, and the presale ticket line is always significantly faster than waiting in the guestlist line.

The last option is to do a hybrid model. Let’s say you have a group of 10. You can get 2 bottles at XS or EBC to get 6 people in, and the remaining 4 can get in via tickets or guestlist. This lets you have a home base and also allows you to keep costs down. Contact us and we’ll help you figure out the best option for your party!

Kaskade is also spinning during two holiday weekends – Cinco de Mayo and Memorial Day Weekend. Both these weekends are going to be 100% sold out and will not have any guestlist. We’d recommend booking your tables and buying tickets in advance.

Upcoming Kaskade Shows in Las Vegas

Foxtail Pool Club Announces Grand Opening Dates

The newest pool party in Las Vegas splashes down on March 13.

Foxtail Pool Club at SLS Las Vegas brings a lineup of electronic dance music heavyweights, including Swedish DJ Steve Angello, formerly of Swedish House Mafia, house music deejay Erick Morillo of “Fun” by Da Mob fame and English trance music specialist Gareth Emery.

Technically, Foxtail is the resort’s pool during the week and transforms into a club Fridays through Sundays. SLS opened right before Labor Day weekend, missing out on the warm weather party season.

The retro-inspired space takes up 43,000 square feet with a pool bar anchoring it. Hang out in one of the 25 cabanas, two VIP cabanas, 30 daybeds or “floating” lily pads while catching rays.

Stick around until night when the wall of the neighboring parking garage and hotel tower turns into a canvas for a 3D mapping show.

While the pool party starts the waves in March, the official grand opening comes on Friday, April 24, with Rebecca & Fiona, the Swedish duo whose singles include “Luminary Ones” and “Bullets.” Morillo kicks off the Sunday party on April 26.

Get on the guestlist or book bottle service at Foxtail Pool Club via the Discotech Mobile App.
