- It’s A Bachelor Or Bachelorette Party
It’s the gold standard reason to plan a Vegas trip – the most epic memories are often made during a bachelor or bachelorette party! There’s no better way to celebrate the final days of “freedom” than spending the weekend in Vegas with your favorite friends. You’ll often see groups at Vegas pools wearing personalized or matching outfits with the bachelor or bachelorette rocking stand out gear. For the bachelorette, it’s typically a white bikini or one piece with a “Bride To Be” monogram. This sends the “bach (elorette) signal” out – the bride is up for some free shots and the whole crew is looking to have fun!
When the stars align (there are some night swim options too!), you’ll see bachelor and bachelorette parties join forces to double up on the fun. Many popular pools get booked several weeks out, so reserving your cabana is essential to maximizing your pool party experience. If it’s your first, (and hopefully last!) foray into wedded bliss, make sure to grab that cabana and avoid a standing room only situation out in the Vegas heat. Taking the plunge into marriage is a huge life event, so make sure you celebrate it right. A Sin City pool should always be the last stop before cruising into holy matrimony.
2. You Love The Music
Vegas pool parties can get pretty crowded, but enjoying your favorite DJ in an open-air environment can be a better experience than feeling claustrophobic in a packed nightclub. Many of the pool parties on the Las Vegas Strip have big name DJs with residencies that draw huge crowds. Whether it’s EDM, hip-hop or “top 40,” the music offered at the dayclub will definitely set the tone for the entire pool party experience.
Local DJs can still get the party jumping at off-strip pool parties, like at Sapphire Pool & Dayclub and the Palms pool. Sapphire Pool & Dayclub is open Friday-Sunday, and SOAK at Palms Pool, locals can enjoy free admission this summer, Monday-Thursday! Las Vegas offers many options to fit your pool party needs — whether it’s chill vibes or the kind of party that will lead to a four hour nap, our city has you covered.
3. You Want To Do It “Euro style” And Go Topless
One of the most amazing things about Vegas is being the best version of YOU, and enjoying activities that just wouldn’t fly in your hometown! Ladies have been known to get excited about rocking wild, revealing outfits in Las Vegas without any judgment. You’ll often hear girls on a shopping trip spot the perfect dress or thong bikini and say:“Wow, this is perfect for Vegas!” It can be a relief for women who may love a particular garment or swimsuit, but feel too shy to wear it in their more conservative hometown.
Something unique about Vegas pools is that certain dayclubs allow ladies and wait staff to go “European style,” and remove their topl. This is something unique to Las Vegas, as most cities in the U.S. do not have the option to go topless at a pool party. Moorea Beach, Bare Pool Lounge, and Sapphire Pool & Dayclub are the three options that allow ladies to remove their tops in Vegas. (Sapphire is the only topless pool that’s also adjoined to a gentlemen’s club!). It’s a total confidence move for the ladies. It also provides a sexy atmosphere for both men and women who want to take their Vegas pool party experience up a notch.
4. You Want To Mingle With Beautiful People
Let’s face it — most who attend Las Vegas pool parties aren’t going there to discuss important world affairs and politics. Pool patrons are mostly excited to enjoy all the sexy scenery, tan skin and hot physiques. It’s the ultimate form of escapism. And the great thing about Vegas pool parties is the opportunity to be in a relaxed environment to meet and mingle with other guests. Ladies have the option of rocking flip flops, and avoiding painful high heels, while men don’t have to feel confined in a stuffy dress shirt. It’s the perfect environment to take in all the eye-candy while feeling comfortable in your own skin.
Many Vegas pools actually hold auditions for bartenders, wait staff, and cabana hosts with the title of “Model Staff.” The whole city of Las Vegas basically exists to put on a show, and pool parties are no exception. Jobs at Vegas pools are very competitive, meaning only the most gorgeous and personable get hired. This only elevates the experience for patrons who love to be in the mix with the smokin’ hot staff.
5. You Want A More Relaxed Environment Than A Nightclub
In recent years, Las Vegas dayclubs have taken over the party scene and are rivaling the popularity of nightclubs. While some Las Vegas visitors want to party hard and enjoy both day and nighttime festivities, some tourists prefer the more low-key vibes in a dayclub environment. But music from the DJ is typically blasting and people are still looking to let loose, so “low-key” doesn’t equate to “boring” when it comes to a Vegas pool party!
But when we compare it to a Las Vegas nightclub, the perks of attending a pool party involve the ability to rock casual attire and avoid pretentious vibes at some of the more swanky, overpriced nightclubs. Letting the drinks flow and then taking a power nap on a lounge chair is a lot more acceptable than taking a snooze on a bartop. And rocking sunglasses at the pool makes you look sexy, whereas in the club, it can project a snooty aura or what some would refer to as “douche vibes.”
We don’t make all the party rules, but hey, what can we say —- we love our Vegas pools!
