Top 13 Vegas Pool Parties for 2021
Vegas Pool Parties are legendary and an integral part of Las Vegas' vibrant daylife scene. Every year, Sin City attracts thousands of party-goers and sun-worshipers globally who flock to this famous desert oasis to bask in the warmth of the desert sun while enjoying refreshing cocktails and an unparalleled music experience with live sets from the hottest DJs, performers, and up-and-coming artists.
To keep you informed on the latest and greatest day life happenings, below is our comprehensive guide to the Top 13 Vegas Pool Parties in 2021.
Vegas pool parties will be back in business for 2021. To what extent, we don't know. What we do know is they are holding auditions for all the top spots, and Stadium Swim is already open for business! You can count on the old reliables such as Encore Beach Club and Wet Republic to deliver some great parties. There is a newcomer to the list this year, the Ayu Dayclub. This new kid on the block, based on all the hype, ranks high on our list.
We had the Vegas pools in business from June until October in 2020, but many restrictions were in place. The usual big DJs such as Tiesto and The Chainsmokers were not on anyone's lineup since pools were only allowed bottle service for up to 6 people. Yep, bottle service only, no guest list, no tickets, no VIP entry and no general admission. You were basically paying full price for bottles just to hang out with a small group of 6 people max who you came in with – kind of a bummer if you ask me.
For 2021 we can only pray 🙏 that our good 'ole Governor Sisolak lets things go back to normal once this "effective" vaccine is readily available. I personally wouldn't spend my money with the 2020 rules in effect. If you are going to pay $1000+ a bottle for no DJ and no crowd, you might as well take that money, get a penthouse suite with a pool, and hire some atmosphere models. But hey, what do I know? I have only been throwing parties for 30 years. Note: I was in Miami for New Year's and hit up Hyde Beach and several other Miami clubs, such as Space and they were packed with people who had little if any fear of the virus.

Encore Beach Club
Some like to call it the "Alice in Wonderland" of pools, and they have a point. This venue is amazing, and so is the party 🎉! In years past, Wynn nightlife has locked up talents like The Chainsmokers and David Guetta, so you can expect every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to be busy with a talented artist. Of late, they pulled out the stripper poles and toned the party down a bit, but they are still on the top of my list. With plenty of cabanas on the main and upper levels, a large pool, and gambling in the pavilion area, you have something for every party-goer here. Bottles can run in the $1100 range with tip and tax, and surprisingly the high price tag for the "scenery" gets no complaints on our end.

Ahh, the history I have with Wet Republic puts a smile on my face. I was the Chicago promotional partner from the day Wet opened until I moved to Vegas in February of 2013 to be the promotions manager for Wet and Hakkasan. The memories I have from the early days when I would travel for Memorial Day and Labor Day still feels like yesterday. Wet Republic is one of the most sought-after dayclub destinations. They continue to innovate and have recently expanded their bungalows and Grand Cabanas. The Hakkasan Group knows how to book talent; keep an eye out for the big hitters like Tiesto, Steve Aoki and Zedd. They are open Thursday to Monday and Fridays in the summer, and they host the infamous Hot 100 contest with hundreds of print quality models vying for $100K+ at the end of the season prize money.
Dance Floor Tables
The "newbie" for 2021 is AYU Dayclub at the new Resorts World on the north end of the iconic Vegas Strip. Details are still vague, and at the time of this writing, the opening date has not yet been disclosed. What we do know Ronn Nicolli, formally with Wynn Nightlife and then Kaos, is the Vice President of Zouk Group, and Ronn knows some talent buyers and will likely rope in some big names for the new Zouk Nightclub and the Ayu Dayclub. I'm sure I will see many of you there this summer 🎉.
Note: 3D Map Coming Summer 2021
Once considered a boutique pool, we now call this venue a mid-sized pool. The two pools themselves are pretty small, but the layout is more like a daytime club with plenty of grand cabanas, bungalows, and daybeds to go around. They are the smartest of all the pools, with the ladies offering some free drinks and limited girl comps so the girl-guy has some ammo to work with when supplying the paying table customers with tourist talent. I like to try and bring my own girls to join the fun at my customer tables, but having a reliable back up is a good call. Marquee Day Club is open seven days a week in the summer, but the party days are Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Management typically books EDM talent on the weekend like Dash Berlin and Tritonal. Still, occasionally DJ Mustard will do a Hip Hop pool party, so check out the events schedule to see what's cooking on your weekend.
My company's staple has been Drai's Beachclub, one of the few "popular" pools that have some decent bottle deals and a good crowd. In recent times, the lineup has been open-format or mid-level EDM on Fridays, a mid-level Hip Hop artist on Saturdays, and Sundays DJ Pauly D's playhouse. The crowd is a bit more diverse than it used to be these days, which is a plus for many. You will always find some pretty ladies and many bachelorette groups, as the Drai's promoters know how to entice the ladies to come to join the promoter table. The dance floor is tight and usually packed the entire set the headlining act is performing.
Stadium Swim at Circa
A new concept to Sin City is the only "sports" pool party called Stadium Swim at Circa in "Old Vegas" – Downtown. Can you believe it has been 40 years since they built anything of significance in the Fremont Street district? Well, I must say this place was worth the wait. There is simply nothing like it anywhere in the world. The guest rooms are amazing, and the Pool boasts 15,000 feet of wet space with heated pool temps of 78-94 degrees, even up to a steamy 104 degrees in colder months. Did I mention they are open year-round, seven days a week? Party, dance, and bet on an app, all while catching a game on the big screen. Let's go!
When I think of Daylight, I think of a music festival. The stage is similar to what you might find at a small artist venue at Electric Daisy Carnaval. They boast the largest dance floor of any pool and have plenty of reasonably priced "party pits" and daybeds. They book some decent talent on the weekends as well, expect appearances from Duke Dumont, Morgan Page and on big weekends Rick Ross. The space is wide open, the Pool is fairly large, and the crowd is diverse. If you are into Hip Hop, then the Lit 🔥 Sundays Hip Hop party is a "Do Not Miss!"
Liquid Pool Lounge
Liquid is not a large pool, but it's not small either. You won't see big names playing sets here, but you can catch a great party with a talented mid-level artist. Hakkasan Group is the operator of this venue, and it is one of their only remaining small pools. There is no question; they know how to throw a party. This venue relies more on the CityCenter Complex's sheer size to fill the space than the artists' draw. Expect to see print-model bottle girls and a handful of bachelorette parties as the promotions team knows how to get people in the door, especially on Thursdays, which is notoriously a great day to visit.
Jemaa Pool Party
The Monte Carlo underwent a remodel and re-branding in 2018, and from the madness came the Park MGM. This now 2021 total "smoke-free" hotel has a pool called the Nomad pool. Fridays-Sundays, management transforms this Pool into the Jemaa Pool Party. This venue is inspired by the Majorelle Gardens of Morocco, a 2.5-acre botanical garden in Marrakech. The layout is plush, and the menu of specialty cocktails will go beyond anyone's imagination and expectations. They opened with a bang, booking some mid-level DJ talent like Quest Love but have traced that back to a handful of quality resident DJs.
Flamingo Go Pool
Once considered a "hotel pool," rather than a "party pool," this has changed over the last few years. The Flamingo Go Pool now showcases a quality stage and a concert style sound system. They book open-format DJs seven days a week, and on bigger event Saturdays, you can expect to hear performances from some B-list celebs such as Vanilla Ice and Jarule. Management has raised the bar on talent, causing us to notice and begin to book groups here. The cabanas and daybeds are different than most places. You will pay a "rental fee" for the location, and the alcohol is about half the price compared to most of the other pools. When you add the rental fee and the alcohol, you are still paying less than at other clubs, so I consider this a bargain spot.
Bare Pool Lounge
The famous boutique pool at the Mirage will always be a staple in town. For 20 years, ladies have been "showing off" their assets to the guys. The Bare pool itself is relatively small, but there are plenty of cabanas, daybeds, and lounge chairs to go around. A cozy pool isn't half bad if you want to get up-close-and-personal with some topless cuties. This party goes seven days a week in season, and they have a resident DJ that will spin open-format music, which is Top 40, EDM, and Hip Hop, all blended to appeal to everyone.
Sapphire Pool is a unicorn in the daylife scene. Not only can you see some topless strippers at this hot spot, but you can also take one back to a private room and get one-on-one attention. A unique concept! The only issue I have seen here in recent years is the crowd can be a bit hit-or-miss, and if you are trying to pick up a "tourist" girl, you will not find many here. On the flip side, you can get a couple of drinks, a complimentary ride there, and VIP Entry all for around $36 with our deal, so as far as deals go, you can't beat this place. They occasionally have a porn star or celebrity guest host, so be sure to check out our events section for the upcoming lineup.
Moorea Beach Club
Another "toptional" dayclub that will not disappoint. This party is known as a "lifestyle" hangout. If you don't know what that means, I will cut to the chase. That means swinger couples love this place. Topless and edgy would be the two words that come to mind for Moorea Beach Club. They also do the tables a bit differently than most places. You pay a "rental fee," and the alcohol is a bit less expensive. If they keep their 2019 deals intact for 2021, I would consider this a bargain party, only if you don't mind the "lifestyle" folks.
Honorable Mention – XS Nightswim
I had to add this to my list. Even though this party is at night, the XS Nightswim is one of the best parties in the world, period! I included the video above so you can see for yourself, not only do they bring in big DJ talents like Major Lazor and David Guetta, but they also fill the Pool with toys, and the guests go "buck wild." You will always find some A-list talent here, and they even have some bottle specials. This party only happens on Sundays, May to September, so consider extending your trip until Monday, so you don't miss it!
Honorable Mention – Venus – the Adult Topless Pool at Caesar's Palace
The Hakkasan Group used to run the Venus Pool and when they did, there was a guest list, and the atmosphere was a party scene. They have since moved on, and it's now more of a hotel pool, but it's still topless, and as my partner says: "It's a great place to hit on MILFS," so it might be worth a shot.
What are good Hotel Pools?
Sin City has some pretty cool pools that are not considered party pools. Some of my favorites are the MGM Grand pool and lazy river, the large Mandalay Bay Beach pool, the Planet Hollywood Surf experience, and the Boulevard Pool at the Cosmopolitan. These are my top choices if you don't want to experience the above-listed dayclubs.
I am staying at the Hotel; can I get in for Free?
The answer here is maybe. Some hotels allow hotel guests access to all pools, and some will treat hotel guests just like any guest. If the Dayclub books a popular DJ, management will likely treat the event like a concert, and you will want to get on the guestlist or buy a ticket. My team and I will know the deal, so submit a form and we will get you the details as rules tend to change by the weekend.
How do I reserve a Cabana or Daybed?
My specialty is bottle service, and I book more table service at the pools than any host in town. The process is simple, for 2021 I have many of the Pool's prices listed on the events pages, and for the places that don't list a price, I likely have some package deals. Either way, I have a complete automation system built out, so if you want a quick quote, just submit a form, let me know the dates you are coming and the number of people in your group, and I will send an email with all the prices and deals we offer.
What is the Dress Code for Pool Parties?
This one is easy, or so I thought. Ladies, you get a pass here. I have never had a Vegas girl get rejected for dress code at a pool. Guys, have a look at our dress code guide and pay attention to the pool party section. You will notice the article says, "SWIM ATTIRE ONLY." This means a pair of swim trunks, a t-shirt or tank top, and flip flops, gym shoes, or sandals. I am not sure why this is so hard to comprehend for some guys. Notice I didn't say jerseys, athletic gear, Air Jordan's, Khaki shorts, jean shorts, cargo shorts, etc. Hopefully, you are catching my drift here!"
Weekly Pool Hot Spots
Since I have been in the service industry for a long time and have many friends in that realm, I get asked this question a lot: "Which pools are good during the week?" The truth is nothing will compare to a Saturday in town, but you can find and a nice mix of locals and tourists at the spots below:
Monday: Bare, Wet Republic
Tuesday: Flamingo Go Pool, Venus
Wednesday: Stadium Swim at Circa on Fremont Street
Thursday: Liquid, Wet Republic
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday: All the pools are open and busy
What are the Topless Pools?
Ahh, the topless pools in Sin City. Admittedly, we love them, and they seem to be gaining popularity. Although we don't have any new editions to the venue lineup, the old standbys will have the ladies feeling "free." Below are our topless Pool picks for 2021 for "no tan-lines."
- Bare Pool Lounge at the Mirage
- Moorea Beach Club at Mandalay Bay
- Venus Adult Pool at Caesar's Palace
What time do the Pool Parties close?
All the pools in Vegas usually open at 11 a.m. and close around 6:00 p.m. One exception, Sapphire Pool opens at noon. If some of the bigger spots like Wet Republic and Encore Beach still have a decent crowd around 6:00 p.m., they might extend it.
What Pool Parties play Hip Hop?
I get asked about the Hip Hop pool parties a lot, and there are only a couple of all Hip Hop parties. Saturdays, Drai's Beach has been booking some mid-level Hip Hop acts, and generally, when they do, they play Hip Hop all day. The other notable Hip Hop party is Lit 🔥 Sundays at Daylight. Several pools play open-format – a mix of Top 40, EDM, and Hip Hop. For the open-format parties, check with us as artists may change, but Flamingo Go Pool and Daylight are usually good calls on Thursday and Friday.
When is the Pool Season?
In the past, opening weekend was mid-March, but these days, with the climate change, we sometimes get decent weather in early March, so the big hitters like Encore Beach Club and Marquee Day Club try and push their luck on the first couple of weekends in March. The season then goes until mid-October, even late October for EBC and Marquee Day Club.
The Final Word
Well, there you have it, the complete Vegas Pool Party guide for 2021. We can only hope that we put last year in the rearview so we can get back on to the precious ragers we know and love. In my previous 20-years of hosting, I never thought I would see a time when I legally could not bring people together. It has been a tough go, but I remain optimistic that 2021 will be much better. I am confident people will want to party, and Vegas will be back on track at some point. I hope to party with you at a Vegas Dayclub soon. Until then, hit me up for a custom pool quote!
