Some of the experienced Vegas Pool Party goers call Encore Beach Club the “happiest place on earth”. After a day at EBC, it’d be hard to disagree with them. Encore Beach Club’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.
The layout of EBC is truly what separates this pool party from the others. The pool is always clean, the EDM music is great, the dance floor is easily accessible and food is served which is always a bonus. The crowd is usually young and upbeat so partying is elevated to another level of fun and enjoyment.But that’s not all. During the summer, Encore Beach Club turns into EBC at Night, which features night swims. That means you can wear a swimsuit, get into the pool and party with your favorite DJ under the stars!
Found on the 11th floor of The Cromwell, 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 features an unblocked rooftop which displays an unrivaled view of the Red Rock Mountains in the distance and the Bellagio fountains which is located across the street.
The central pool is surrounded by palm trees while pink curtains cover the second-floor cabanas outfitted with HD TVs — but with all the beautiful people dancing to the tunes of a live DJ, it’s doubtful anyone will be watching much television. The nightclub is a two-story indoor space facing the dayclub pool and includes shiny black, semi-circular booths and a horseshoe DJ station surrounded by columns decorated with tons of postage stamp-sized mirrors.
Drai’s will very often be playing top 40 / hip hop but it always depends on the DJ. On occasion they will bring in EDM DJs such as Quintino or Sidney Samson; on these days you’ll get a mix of hip hop and EDM.
Pro-tip: Hotel guests at the Cromwell get free access to the dayclub.
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 during the Summer 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.
Credit for this claim goes to Marquee’s sound and light systems. Marquee has a Funktion One sound system with 32,000-watt subwoofers and a state-of-the-art audio-visual stage set-up designed by Steve Liberman. The venue looks and sounds spectacular enough to wow the high rollers that have been known to frequent the venue.
The dayclub features three-story Bungalow Lofts, complete with cabanas, living quarters, grand Las Vegas pool cabanas with infinity pools and a party deck on top. This place gets wild.
A privileged playground for partygoers and celebrities, Wet Republic at MGM Grand combines the best elements of Vegas nightlife with supreme poolside amenities to create the ultimate pool party experience. The unrivaled hot spot delivers a variety of experiences for its guests, whether they want to relax over cocktails in the poolside lounge, reside in exclusive VIP bungalows, or bask under the sun 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 and artists include Tiesto, Zedd, Martin Garrix, Steve Aoki, Tyga, Afrojack, and many more.
On weekends, The NoMad Pool transforms into JEMAA – The NoMad Pool Party. A seductive and energetic daytime experience, JEMAA features a renowned cocktail program, table side service, and a roster of top-tier DJs and artists delivering themed music performances — including a tropical house vibe on Sundays.
The gorgeous and spacious pool is at the center of it all, surrounded by daybeds, cabanas, and bungalows. Guests will also find two bars as well as a covered area so you may escape the sun, setup perfectly for dining. Enjoy a star studded lineup of DJs all summer as the luxurious pool provides a tranquil escape from the neon, glitter, heat, and sweat that accompanies The Strip.
This garden-like oasis, inspired by the Majorelle Gardens of Morocco, features casual fare, expertly-crafted cocktails and a robust selection of wines. Don’t forget to inquire about the cocktail fountain at JEMMA, known for their award winning food and elite cocktail list.
Daylight Beach Club (DBC) made its debut Summer 2013 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, and since then has gone on to become one of the hottest dayparties in Las Vegas. Daylight features 70 daybeds, 25 cabanas, 6 LED screens, a 5,000 sq foot pool. The venue is spacious which means the club offers tons of room to roam around and explore. Shoulder to shoulder clubbing can get old real quick.
Like Light nightclub at the Mandalay, Daylight initially started out playing primarily EDM, but with last year’s change in management, Daylight has shifted to a Hip Hop / top 40 vibe. Daylight is open during the summer Vegas pool season, which usually starts late March/early April and runs until Labor Day.
Pro-tip: We have a free guestlist for girls and even ratio parties that include drink tickets.
When the weather heats up, TAO Beach offers a sizzling hot daytime experience under the crystal blue Las Vegas sky. By day, guests can secure a reservation to lounge poolside in one of 12 luxury cabanas that features such amenities as air-conditioning, high definition plasma screen televisions with gaming consoles, WiFi and customized mini bars. Other amenities include sunglasses cleaning and a staff of masseuses. TAO Beach is not your typical dayparty experience.
Asian-inspired daybeds are scattered throughout the 18,000-square-foot oasis which includes a 30-foot bar where guests can sip on TAO-tinis and TAO-jitos made with fresh exotic ingredients. An extensive appetizer and grill menu is also available.
The outdoor oasis serves as an extension of the famed nightclub every Thursday, Friday and Saturday during the season with cabanas and tables for VIP bottle service. As night falls, guests will find themselves in an open-air nightclub featuring two 14-foot fire columns, high-energy music from resident and international guest DJs and strategically-placed beds which are perfect for lounging with friends while taking in the action.
TAO Beach always plays a mix of top 40 / hip hop / open format music. Bottle service here is fairly reasonably priced as far as dayclubs go.
Bare Pool is located at the Mirage. To find Bare Pool, one must trek down a winding path through a jungle oasis that feels like a secret hideaway. Upon arrival, you’ll find an intimate pool area where women are free to wander around topless if they choose. Bare offers a more relaxing, chill atmosphere without the wall-to-wall packed in feeling of some of the other clubs. You’ll find 14,000 square feet that includes two luxury dipping pools, a full service bar, six plasma screens, poolside daybeds, chaise lounge chairs and cabanas. As with many of the Vegas pool clubs, expect to find an endless number of beautiful people, scantily clad and looking to be seen.
The atmosphere at Bare Pool is a lot more chill and laid back than that of the other dayclubs / 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 lie down, chill, hang out with friends with some background music, Bare Pool is your spot!
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 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 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.

Entering its 5th year of action, XS is still the undeniable King of Clubs. Considered by many to be one of the “most luxuriously designed nightclubs on earth,” XS continues to win five star rankings and adoration from club-goers who enjoy the 40,000 square feet of sprawling dance floor, outdoor patio, and pool area.
The design was inspired by the curves of a human body and it owns a 10 foot rotating chandelier and rich gold, black and brown color scheme. A Vegas trip is not complete without a night at XS.
Many reviewers rave about the pool side bottle service and the extravagant night performances hosted by some of the biggest DJs and artists in the world. A fair warning, XS is not your local bar. In fact, it’s safe to say drinks will be far more expensive then your $5 margarita or $7 IPA.
With that being said, bottle service at XS might be the more reliable option, rather than just showing up and begging a security guard to let you in. Luckily for you, the Discotech app can allievate all confusion and stress. How?
Discotech’s app provides users the ability to reserve tables and sign up for Guest List at their finger tips. No more sleezy promoters or empty promises. Discotech has got you covered. Click upcoming events at XS to book your table or spot in the Guest List now!
All in all, XS is a fantastic club. It can be hard to compare venues, but if XS was a player in the NBA or NFL, they would no doubt be in the running for MVP. That’s how valuable and excellent this club is. Surrounded by top tier competition and yet they continue to exceed our expecations and set themselves apart.
One of Las Vegas’s most iconic cocktails, the Ono at the Wynn’s XS Nightclub, is all about over-the-top luxury. The cocktail for two costs a staggering $10,000 and features champagne that goes for some $500 per bottle, plus custom-designed glassware. The star ingredient is a rare cognac that retails for over $2,000 per shot: Rémy Martin Louis XVIII Black Pearl. Using the Black Pearl cognac as inspiration, XS devised a cocktail that would celebrate the cognac’s flavor and scarcity. The name of the drink was inspired by the Polynesian god Oro who, as legend has it, brought a black pearl to the princess of Bora Bora. XS GM Yannick Mugnier explains that the drink was designed with men and women in mind, so the Ono also comes with a set of cufflinks and a gold, diamond, and pearl necklace.
“The cocktail is not about making money,” Mugnier explains, “it’s about extravagance.” He says the cocktail has been a hit with “big winners” at the casino as well as customers looking for a special experience. So far about 25 have been sold since it was on the menu in 2009. The Ono isn’t only a drink, but a celebration within the club. Each order served generates quite a bit fanfare, with a procession of some 20 XS employees, a presentation of the bottle of Black Pearl, and sparklers. Mugnier says: “When you buy the cocktail, everybody knows you bought it.” Below, the elements of the Ono:
1. The Cognac
The inspiration ingredient for the Ono is also its star: Rémy Martin Louis XVIII Black Pearl cognac. It’s a limited edition cognac — only 786 bottles were produced — and Mugnier describes it as the producer’s “most premium.” The Black Pearl is an extraordinarily smooth blend of 12 different eaux de vie — each aged between 40 and 100 years — and there are tasting notes of passion fruit, honeysuckle, ginger, and nutmeg. Mugnier says that the retail value of the bottle is $60,000 – $100,000, with a shot going for about $2,500. XS does not sell Black Pearl by the shot, and Mugnier only buys decanters two at a time. Each of the two cocktails gets half an ounce.
2. The Champagne
The champagne in the Ono is also a rare and pricey product, Charles Heidsieck 1981 Champagne Charlie. Cocktail buyers receive the whole bottle unopened upon ordering the cocktail, which calls for about four ounces of champagne per glass. Mugnier explains that the “Reserve Charlie” is still extremely bubbly, despite being an older vintage, and has dried fruit flavors. Mugnier estimates that a bottle would retail for about $500, and says they are difficult to come by because “every bottle is worth keeping.” When XS decided to use the product they worked with a distributor to purchase as many bottles in the US that they could find, and Mugnier says that even now the club purchases the champagne whenever they find it. Mugnier adds that champagne ties into the nightclub setting, and also gives smoothness to the recipe.
3. The Rose Nectar
Another high-end ingredient, the Sence Rose Nectar the XS adds to the Ono is a syrup made from Kazanlak roses harvested in a three-week period from central Bulgaria. The pink rose nectar adds floral flavor and scent to the drink. Mugnier explains that it’s quite a strong flavor, so the Ono only contains a quarter ounce to keep the drink balanced.
4. The Fruit
Along with the components above, the cocktail has half an ounce of fresh-squeezed orange juice and a quarter of an ounce of apricot puree. Mugnier says the orange juice recalls a Mimosa, adding both bitterness and sweetness to the drink. XS purchases its apricot puree because they find it difficult to keep the seasonal fruit at the bar. The apricot adds its distinct flavors along with an amber color to the drink.
5. The Assembly
Mugnier describes the Ono assembly process as “very ceremonial.” When a patron orders the Ono, there is a procession of some 20 servers and sparklers so “everybody knows you bought it.” A manager carries the cognac in its original box (because of the liquor’s expense, the club prefers managers to carry it). A waitress carries and presents the champagne, and the assembly begins. The guest is presented with a tray full of custom glassware including two gold-rimmed Baccarat champagne flutes for the cocktail. On the tray are additional gold-rimmed shot glasses, which have the pre-measured orange juice, rose nectar, and apricot nectar. These are mixed together, then the cognac is poured into its own custom shot glass. It’s added to the two flutes, which are then topped off with champagne.
At this time guests are also presented with two pieces of custom-designed jewelry: a set of sterling silver Mont Blanc cufflinks and an 18K gold necklace with a black pearl and a diamond. The cufflinks have stingray skin and gold layered with an XS logo. The necklace was designed by a Las Vegas jeweler and also features a gold XS logo. The stingray skin ties into the ocean theme of the Ono’s name, and the black pearl is honor of the cognac. Ordering the expensive cocktail is a full-blown experience, and Mugnier explains that it’s really best for “people who like attention.”
