The Main Confusion comes from the Las Vegas Pool Party Season. This is combined with the fact that pools are less popular during the winter months and the weather is less favorable to pool time. However the Pools are mostly open year-round, there is no pool season as such.
The Pool Party season is defined by more specific dates and this seems to be where people are mostly confused. We look at the Dates for the current year and what the Best Parties are below, however in general they Start to kick off around the beginning of March and start to wind down around the end of October. However, while we LOVE pool Parties and knowing the Season is very important most people asking about the Pool season are not looking for the parties but just somewhere to relax, cool off, and enjoy a few Pool Drinks.
However, the reason the pool parties operate around those dates is this is typically when the weather is most conducive to good pool conditions. From the end of October through to March, the weather is cooler, cloudier, and more prone to rain. None of this is good for sitting by a pool. However, at just about any time of the year, the weather can pick up and temps soar above 70°F (21°C) with clear blue skies and glorious sunshine…Perfect pool weather!
If you don’t know what Pool Parties are then maybe they are not for you. However, should you perchance be a Big Party Goer and have somehow missed out on Vegas’s legendary Day Club scene then Pool Parties are basically a Nightclub…By a pool…during the day!
Expect everything good about a nightclub only outside in the blazing desert sun, with fewer clothes! Also, expect everything BAD about nightclubs too! Expensive drinks, crowded dance floors (pool floors?), Extortionate Cover Charges, and Drunk idiots. Really they pretty much are exactly what they say on the tin. Night Clubs by the pool. In Vegas expect Big Name DJs, the odd Celeb, and eyewatering Drink Prices!
Best Las Vegas Pool Parties
Wet Republic – MGM Grand
Vegas’s original Mega Pool Party Wet Republic really started it all and is still one of the best. Top DJ’s play to huge crowds in MGM’s incredible 54000 sqft Aquatic Club. When the Republic is really going off it’s quite a spectacle!
Daylight Beach Club – Mandalay Bay
There are many reasons to head to Mandalay Bay, and the Daylight Beach Club is definitely one of them. Another Mega-Club, this time “only” 50,000 sqft. Daylight is one of the most popular clubs in the City.
Liquid – Aria
The liquid is a much smaller and more intimate Pool Party. Marketed towards a more luxurious and decadent experience than the Mega-Clubs, this little corner of luxury is a great way to party the day away.
Tao Beach – Venetian
Another Smaller and more intimate Pool-Party, the Tao Beach is one of the original Day Clubs in Vegas. The Smaller Size of the venue holds nothing back and when Tao is rocking it is an awesome Party!
Encore Beach Club – Wynn/Encore
Steve Wynn has a habit of taking a really good idea and just making it better. This is exactly what the Encore Bach club has done. One of the finest beach clubs on the strip. The Encore attracts the biggest names and the most fashionable crowds. THE Place to be seen.
