Tucked deep inside the heart of CityCenter is a gem of a party pool called Liquid Day Club. For those who don't know about CityCenter, it's the largest urban complex of hotels and condos on the Las Vegas Strip with Aria Hotel as the centerpiece.
Inside Aria is Liquid, one of the lesser-known hotspots Wednesday through Sunday but this party is the ultimate poolside experience. The boutique pool and lounge offers a high-end VIP service and contemporary atmosphere.
Thanks to Hakkasan Group, the Liquid Pool Lounge lives up to its reputation and has a variety of amenities and packages. Liquid is perfect for a semi-secluded experience with daybeds, beach couches, and cabanas around every palm-treed lined corner. Whether you are a guest of the Aria or just looking to experience a classic Las Vegas pool scene, Liquid won't disappoint.
Just a few things about me, so you know I'm credible.
I started in this business as a front door host in 2000, and 20 years later, I worked my way up to become a major player in the nightlife industry.
While I still have ownership in a club in Chicago and own a large Chicago-based Halloween and New Year's Event Company, my home has been in Las Vegas since February 2013 when The Hakkasan Group moved me to the City to be their promotions manager for both Wet Republic and Hakkasan.
Nearly one year into my Vegas Adventure, I had enough customers to start my own independent hosting company – Surreal LLC.
Independent hosting is a sexy, but very serious business, especially in Las Vegas. You can't just be any person off the street and hope to work with these nightclubs; you need a gaming license, you have to pass an FBI background check, go through a lot of bureaucracy and own a legit company (State LLC) to do business with them.
You also have to have the pull, the right contacts, and relationships built on trust in order to work a deal.
I do well in this business because my company is reputable, I exceed my customer’s expectations, and most importantly, I have the proper licensing.
A few words of advice, before you book any Bottle Service, please make sure you are working with a licensed company like mine and someone who knows what they’re doing and who will go above and beyond to make your experience an amazing one! Trust me when I say, I know how to throw a great party.
I live and breathe this business 24/7; it’s my passion! Understand, we are working for you and not the clubs. With my years of event and clubbing experience, and hundreds of connections, your Vegas Vacation will be better than anything you ever imagined.
In my Ultimate VIP Guide to LIQUID Vegas Bottle Service, I provide you with all the details you need to know if you're looking to purchase a table. My contact information: 773-459-8133; email@example.com, or you can click the button and fill out a form, and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Also, if you have a question after reading through this guide, feel free to hit up the Surreal Forum , as I am an active daily user there and will be happy to answer any questions. I appreciate your support in the Forum.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Location & Hours of Operation
The hours of operation are 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. Days open are Wednesday to Sunday, closed Monday and Tuesday.
The location is on the main pool deck of the Aria; it's a bit confusing so follow the signs or security personnel as you’re making your walk to the casino. When you arrive, you will meet your Surreal VIP Host and we will get you right in.
We have a whole section dedicated to the Dress Code in Las Vegas. To keep things simple for the guys; you have to wear swim attire. Cargo shorts, pants, khaki pants or athletic gear of any kind is not allowed. For shoes, wear stylish gym shoes, sandals, or flip-flops. Ladies bikinis are encouraged, one-pieces are excellent as well but you will need to wear a cover-up walking to and from the venue.
Note: They do not allow bags unless you have a Bungalow or a Cabana. They will make you check your bag at the front, and if you have an athletic jersey, they will make you remove that and check it as well. There are no exceptions so please no jerseys and no bags.
Similar to all Hakkasan Group venues, the drink prices fall into the industry standard of around $10 for a beer on up to $20 for mixed drinks and specialty cocktails. We have a full 2021 Menu below, just click on the button and scroll down to it.
The Vibe and Artists
This is a boutique pool, and unfortunately, you cannot pack that many people in and the venue is not able to afford to bring in big-name talent. However, they do an awesome job of bringing in some very credible, mid-level talent.
You'll find, for the most part, the artists play a mix of open format, which is Top 40, Hip-Hop, and EDM. Some of the guys on the roster play mostly EDM. Just check the schedule and ask your Surreal Hosts about the music on your day of choice.
DJ Talent for 2021 includes Buza, Kid Conrad, Phoreyz, Maria Romano, Justin Nyce, DJ Jerzy, Romeo Reyes, DJ CLA, Mike Attack, Justin Credible, Cutswell, DJ Kittie, DJ Nova, Joseph Gettright, Scooter & Lavelle, and more.
The crowd overall is pretty diverse, and it’s a nice mix of people from all over the world.
On Fridays and Saturdays, when it's busier, you can expect there to be some wild splashing and craziness in the pool.
The party gets wild and crazy in the pool; lots of laughing, splashing and having fun!
We have a whole page dedicated to the Guest List for this venue. For the most part, guys and ladies are okay, and usually, it's free from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. This obviously might change depending on the weekend but we will connect you with a professional promoter.
Tickets are not usually necessary for this venue; the only exception would be a significant artist or DJ on a holiday weekend or potentially a busy Saturday. See the guest list option above or the table option below. We do not currently offer an affiliate link for tickets, but if you want them, click here.
Note: There is no place to sit inside except along the pool ledge. Bottle Service will get you a place to congregate and rest your feet. We recommend putting your ticket money and what you will spend on drinks towards a reasonably-priced daybed or beach couch.
Hakkasan Group Security
They have stringent security right behind the ropes at check-in. Security personal with a metal detector will wand you.
Big Tip: You must be 21 to enter and have a valid form of ID; pictures on your phone don't cut it, and typically neither will a paper document. If you are not from the United States and have a foreign ID, you will be required to show your passport, so please bring it or you will have to go back to your room to get it.
If you have any of the following items, you will be asked to throw them away, or leave and put them back in your room.
-Vapes (Casinos are Federal Law, and Weed is Illegal)
-Selfie Sticks and GoPros
-Outside food and beverages
-No personal floats
-Anything that can resemble a prescription pill. If you have to have them, bring your prescription with you.
-Usually, they will take away your gum.
-Common sense dictates that narcotics are not allowed and will result in an immediate ban from the property.
Think TSA, but stricter!
Regarding bags, they will be searched and are only allowed for Cabana and Bungalow guests. Everyone else will have to put them in the bag check at the front, and this will hold up the entire entry process. We strongly suggest that you do not bring bags or backpacks.

What is Bottle Service?
By definition, Bottle Service means purchasing alcohol by the bottle instead of buying a drink. American clubs, especially in Las Vegas, are synonymous with "Poppin Bottles."
You will be paying a premium for a bottle to reserve a section in the Club, but it includes a personal server, VIP entry into the Dayclub, and usually an assortment of standard mixers such as cranberry juice, soda, tonic, orange juice, pineapple juice, and soft drinks. Red Bulls and bottled water are available for an upcharge. The cost of a bottle is the same as its nighttime brother.
What's a Minimum Spend?
The minimum spend is the amount you agree to spend in advance on alcohol to get a table or real estate in the Dayclub. In Vegas, we call the minimum spend "the min." The better tables will have a higher minimum spend, and on bigger DJ days, you can expect a higher "min." Below are some typical prices depending on the artist for the day:
Typical Minimum Spends
The food and beverage minimums are as follows:
Wednesday, Thursday, Sunday
Cabana (20 ppl) $2,000
Party Pit Couch (10 ppl) $750
Daybed (6 ppl) $500
Cabana (20 ppl) $3,000
Party Pit Couch (10 ppl) $750
Daybed (6 ppl) $500
Cabana (20 ppl) $4,000
Party Pit Couch (10 ppl) $1,500
Daybed (6 ppl) $1,000
Holiday weekends and special events might be higher. One thing to note is that you can bring the minimum down a bit, get express entry, and potentially get a better location with a handshake to the podium. We will talk more about handshakes below.
Bottle Service has its perks. VIP entry to a personalized server and security for your section can make your big day out extra special. We walk you pass any lines with expedited entry.
Below are Table options. Click on the option you want a quote for or scroll up to our 3D clickable Map section for a quote to choose your area.
The Bungalows and Cabanas are a Vegas-must for the pool!
All luxury cabanas come equipped with a TV, remote-controlled misting, a safe, refrigerator, and a private lounge area.
Grands Cabana Row #4 to #8 (20 ppl)
These are the 5 Cabanas if you are looking at the DJ on the right. They are called the Owner’s Row and are the more desirable area. The shared pool is extended and this area tends to attract more ladies.
Cabanas #27 to #29 (20 ppl)
There are 3 regulars Cabanas along the back row looking at the DJ on the left side. They have a shared pool in front and all the amenities. They also come with a daybed in front of the Cabana and a great view of the DJ.
Party Pits (10-12 ppl)
The Party Pits are some of our favorite tables in Vegas. They are large and face the pool and the best part, they are not that expensive. They also have umbrellas, but if it's windy, they will not put them up. Party Pit Row is on the left side of the pool if you are looking at the DJ./
Day Beds (6-8 ppl)
The Entry-Level Tables are the daybeds, and they are perfect for smaller groups, couples, or a group of girls. The beds are placed in front of the Cabana Row area, facing the DJ on the right. They offer a nice amount of space to hang out and the price is reasonable compared to other spots in town. So, if your budget is tight or you want to get a package deal, this Daybed is a great option.
How Do I Calculate My Bill?
Let's do the math:
$1500 (min) + $125.63 (8.375% City Tax) + $123.75 (8.25% Venue Fee) + $300 (20% to the server) = $2049.38.
Total Bill Calculator for LIQUID Day Club Bottle Service
This does not include any "shake" to the podium for location, express entry, specific table, etc. FYI, a "shake" can also help with a lower minimum spend, express entry, and a better table location. This option is not always available.
When someone refers to the "shake," that means they tip on top of your table minimum and the tip, tax, and venue fee that you will be paying. (The "shake" or “handshake” to the podium goes into the host's tip pool).
In many instances, there is an opportunity to get lower-than-posted-pricing with what's called a "handshake" in Las Vegas; basically, it is a gratuity to the podium for a lower minimum and a potential upgraded location.
Sometimes a podium tip is required for a particular table or even to get a location on certain days. There are some higher tiers when Dash Berlin and DJ Mustard are in town, and it's a holiday or fight weekend.
To assist you in your booking, we've included an interactive 3D map where you are just able to click on the section you desire and submit a form. Prices fluctuate based on demand which is why we provide custom quotes because we can usually work a deal for a better table! We also included the Table Map with the table numbers, which makes things easier to discuss.
The Best Tables and the Best Value
The best real estate in the Club is the Cabanas. For a small boutique pool, they boast a lot of space and can be a hell of a time. Being that the pool is so small, a Party Pit Couch or a Daybed is right next to the pool and in the craziness.
So as far as the best tables go, there aren't any bad ones, they're all good! If you want a tight party at a small boutique pool that is a lot less expensive than the more prominent places, then this is a great call.
Bottle Service Deals and Packages
Being that the pool is small, they tend to sell out on the weekends, so package deals are a little hard to come by. It’s definitely worth checking with us to see if that has changed for this season. Potentially on an off day, we can work something.
Just to give you an idea of a typical Bottle Service package, you'd be looking at around $1,200 all-in for two premium bottles when the retail on that would be somewhere closer to $1800 all-in. We can add in brunch or a party after the pool, and of course, limo service there and back.
**All-in means all tips and taxes are included in the price.
A Bottle starts at $595 for Effen Vodka; the standard Grey Goose is a little less than regular pool prices at $650. Check out the Menu below.
Bottle Service Presentations
As you would expect from a Hakkasan Group venue, they go all out for an excellent bottle service presentation. At a smaller Boutique Pool, most likely you will be able to get a presentation for a reasonably low spend amount.
A good rule of thumb is an order of $2,000, ordered all at once, and some sort of champagne will trigger a bottle service presentation. Just ask us or coordinate with the cocktail server and we will make it happen.
If you have a small to mid-size event and would like to host a daytime party or a nighttime pool party under the stars, Liquid would be a perfect venue for your group. We have also had occasions when we rented out only a row of 3-5 Cabanas to a private group. Either way, we book a bunch of corporate parties and we'd be happy to set up your next big event so just let us know.
The Liquid Beach Club is an excellent venue for Couples. The pricing is reasonable, especially on the weekdays, and the intimate setting makes it a great hang out for a cool duo. They also have delicious food, so if you want to have a beautiful day with your partner, this is a great spot. We also may have the opportunity for a couple to join a larger group on a bigger, more expensive table. Just ask us.
If you're a bunch of guys, we would recommend either a Party Pit or a Cabana. We have rented many Cabanas over the years, and the guys seem to like the vibe and the private pools. The venue does an excellent job of trying to bring attractive females up to the bigger spenders.
Considering the overall cost of a Cabana with a private pool compared to some of the other venues, this is a great deal. So, if you have a group of guys and the budget is a little tight but you still want a Cabana with a pool, then this would be a great option. We can also combine it with limos, a brunch or a gentlemen's club after the event if you want to make it a crazy day!
Promoter and Girl-Guy System
Most large clubs in Las Vegas have what's called a girl-guy promoter system. They usually designate a Pool Bungalow at the pool to be the "Promoter Table." They will bring the prettiest girls from the guest list to the promoter table and let them drink for free until they get recruited to a Bottle Service Table.
The Promoter Bungalow is usually sold later in the day, and the girls are either brought to other tables or mixed in with the crowd. To get some of the pretty ladies from the Promoter Table over to your table, you will need to meet the girl-guy. The girl-guy is a promoter or host in charge of placing females throughout the day.
If you're struggling to get ladies, a tip to the girl-guy usually works wonders. Typically, we don't rely on the girl-guy system; as a team, we try to bring our ladies to your table, but in some cases, the girl-guy system can be effective. If you'd like to talk to the girl-guy, just shoot us a text, and we'll make it happen.
For more on the Vegas.
Being that the pricing is reasonable for a Daybed or a Party Pit, makes this venue a popular destination for a bachelorette party, especially if you bachelorette’s are on a budget.
Some days the minimums are as low as $250, and for a group of ladies who just want to have a nice meal and some drinks, this is a perfect fit. The reasonably priced seating is close to the pool and it’s an intimate setting, making it perfect for a group who wants to have a little fun. We have some fantastic options that include limo service and brunch. Contact us to discuss.
How do I get my guests in if they arrive late?
Getting people in late if you have a Cabana, Party Pit or Daybed is very easy provided you have not maxed out the number of people allowed. For example, a Daybed might allow up to 8 people. For the latecomers, all they need is a table number and the name of the booked reservation.
They simply walk up to the VIP ropes and mention the table number and the reservation name, and they should get right in. If you book a table with us and you happen to have any issues shoot us a text and we will handle it immediately.
Formerly the old Haze Nightclub in the Aria, and famous from the movie Old Vegas, the new and improved mega-club is Jewel. Jewel is operated by the same group who operates Liquid; they like to keep the customers from the pool in the family. We have a complete Ultimate Guide to Jewel Nightclub.
Check it out if you're interested. We can also offer some pretty incredible deals if you book both Liquid and Jewel. We have several fantastic packages that include limos, dinners with all you can drink and eat, and lots more!
One thing the CityCenter is known for is its vast array of fabulous restaurants. Some of our favorite spots are Javier’s, Carbone, Catch, and Julian Serrano Tapas. If you want to "catch" an amazing meal before or after the Dayclub, click on the link for a list of excellent restaurants.
What Else Should You Know?
The actual pool itself is pretty small, so it's almost like a private pool, however the shared hot tub style pools in the Cabanas are awesome. The majority of the hot ladies in the venue will be hanging out in these pools.
Pool Toys and Swag
They do not allow pool toys and cheesy swag. You'll see some bachelorette parties sporting. This pool is classy and upscale, and although there might be some crazy splashing going on in the pool, it's not big enough for any pool toys.
FREE DRINKS for the Ladies
We're not sure if we are going to offer this for the season, but it's worth asking.
Click the button for the Guest List, and our promoter connection will let you know the deal.
The Las Vegas pool scene is a little bit weak during the week. The only day that has a decent pool party, aside from Friday, Saturday and Sunday, is Thursday. On Thursday, you only have a couple of choices - one is Liquid and the other two are Daylight and Wet Republic.
But don’t get too excited, the Thursday Dayclub scene is not that great but out of these three choices, Liquid would be a good call if you're looking for a party pool on a Thursday.
The Model Cocktail Servers
Hakkasan Management Group knows how to staff a venue. They usually hold some kind of audition in January and thousands of girls apply. They also operate Wet Republic and Liquid, so they have thousands of pretty girls apply. You can imagine, they take the cream of the crop, and the staff at Liquid is top-tier model quality.
Lockers and Bag Check
We mentioned earlier; unless you have a Cabana, you will not be allowed to bring in your bag so, please do not bring a bag. Inside they have a bank of lockers, so if you want to put your keys/wallet into a locker, you can rent one for the day. The rental price for lockers change often and they aren’t cheap; expect to pay a hefty amount for a small locker.
Quality of Crowd
Let's talk about the quality of the crowd at all Vegas pools in general. There was a time, back in 2006 – 2010, when people only had a choice between a couple of pools. Today, Las Vegas has commercialized the pool industry and there are 7-8 quality pool parties on any given weekend day.
Unfortunately, there is not one pool where you will find all the prettiest and most attractive people, now they are spread out over many pools. It's not like one of those places in certain cities where people have to look a certain way to get in. Just about anybody can buy a ticket, get on a guest list, or get a table.
So, the pictures you see that look like the place is full of super models and fitness fanatics can be a bit deceiving. To that point, the venues tend to post their best pictures to give the impression that the crowd is all model hot but that’s not the case.
However, getting Bottle Service will increase your chances of meeting attractive people, and more often than not, you will find the best-looking people in the Cabanas. That's our two cents worth!
The Final Word
If you're staying at the Aria or close to it, Liquid is a great option – you can meet some pretty ladies or cool guys that have their rooms conveniently close.
Liquid is a boutique-style pool, this isn't what we would consider a “destination pool”. When we say destination pool, we mean people who go out of their way to come to this event. They don't have big DJs, but they do know how to throw a good party. So, if you're looking for more of an intimate setting, where the staff is hot and the vibe is right, Liquid is the spot.
If you are looking the ultimate club experience, we would be happy to book your Bottle Service.
