There’s nothing like some serious snowfall to get you ready for pool season. Lucky for you, in Vegas we get our snow and then swing open the doors to the dayclubs less than two weeks later. Here’s a quick look at the popular pool parties set to arrive this weekend.
Encore Beach Club
KAOS is coming to the Palms in April, but EBC isn’t going to give up its dayclub title without a serious fight. With even more house, techno and Ibiza-flavored artists on the roster in 2019—starting with Elephante on March 1, Lost Kings on March 2 and Salvatore Ganacci on March 8—it’s definitely a sunny vibe at Encore Beach Club. The season is truly launched at the end of the month with the return of Art of the Wild, a three-day mega-party starring Guy Gerber, Fisher, Carl Cox and many others. Encore, 702-770-7300.
The views are back. There’s no better place to kick off pool season than up on the roof at center Strip, and Drai’s went all-in on an eclectic outdoor musical lineup last season. The big name on the roster heading into opening weekend is none other than DJ Pauly D on March 16 and 23. Cromwell, 702-777-3800.
The Cosmo pool party starts March 1 with DJ Lema, but more importantly, the building Beatwave series kicks off March 17 with Sam Feldt, and the grand opening weekend revs up with Cedric Gervais March 22, DJ Mustard March 23 and Chris Lake March 24. Cosmopolitan, 702-333-9000.
If you’re already missing Rehab at the soon-to-renovate Hard Rock, get over to the Go Pool for similar unpretentious vibes and a come-as-you-are party scene. On tap this year: Go Fridays with radio fave DJ Supa James; Daybeats Saturdays with Eric Forbes; and Twisted Tuesdays with Greg Lopez and DJ D-Miles. Flamingo, 702-697-2888.
Call out of work Friday and meet us and Kay the Riot at Tao for a proper chill day party. She’ll be back at the Beach, along with Vice and Konstantina Gianni, for grand opening weekend March 29-31. Venetian, 702-388-8588.
Foxtail Pool & Retro Pool Lounge
With waves of renovation washing over SLS Las Vegas, expect to see a more energetic emphasis on daylife activities this season including its sparkling white Foxtail venue and intimate rooftop Retro Pool Lounge. SLS, 702-761-7080.
Clubs opening the weekend of March 8:
Daylight at Mandalay Bay, Liquid at Aria, Wet Republic at MGM Grand.
