City is on fire through the end of summer and the best way to cool down is at one of its legendary pool parties. Assistant EditorMelanie Wynne scopes out the best parties and hottest headliners over Labor Day Weekend and beyond.
We’ve rounded up the hottest Las Vegas pool partiesto hit from now until Labor Day – and beyond. Think splashy soirees with bass-thumping beats, cocktails priced to impress and the hottest DJs on the planet. These poolside clubs attract large crowds of well-toned, swimsuit-clad revelers, and their velvet-rope door policies are notoriously tough. Unless you plan to arrive early or know a promoter who can get you (and for extra insurance, your cutest girlfriends) in, it’s wise to buy tickets online in advance, splurge on a table or bottle service, or for an all-out VIP experience, reserve a private cabana.
Here’s where to get your swimandyour groove on in Vegas this Labor Day Weekend:
Known for excellent service and a stellar lineup of EDM talent (superstar DJ David Guetta is a regular), this hotspot features a three-tiered network of pools. Reserving a VIP bungalow here is a little like having your own poolside apartment with your own bikini-clad server. On two levels, the 26 private cabanas still offer luxury, with spray-mist systems, ceiling fans and back balconies with views of the Vegas Strip. Around the pool you’ll find 12 pillow-strewn day beds, and set right in the water, 14 white-vinyl-padded lounges called “lily pads.” A circular dance station with three poles and waterfall rim rises from the center of one of the pools, and while the DJ booth is set a bit outside the action, speakers are spread throughout the club, enabling clear sound everywhere. The grill offers substantial appetizers like mahi mahi soft tacos, and drinks (served by the glass or pitcher) include the Cocolicious, a blend of coconut vodka, Hennessy Black and rock candy, topped with coconut water and shredded coconut.
