After a long night out at one of Sin City's hottest nightclubs, or... um, trying to get into one of Sin City's hottest nightclubs, you're probably ready for something you can definitely get into: a pool. Or even better, one of Vegas famously epic pool parties, so we've got scoop on all 17 worth knowing about, including when they open...

Azure

Azure Luxury Pool

Palazzo
Open: Late March
Why you want to go? Azure offers the perfect way to ease into the summer party season. There’s still a DJ, but the atmosphere is tame compared to other day clubs… but it's perfect for a massage in one of the cabanas, courtesy of the Canyon Ranch SpaClub.

Bare

Bare Pool Lounge

The Mirage
Open: Mid March
Why you want to go? Bare offers European sunbathing in an intimate setting with two dipping pools underneath the palm trees. So expect to see plenty of tops off and plenty of drinks being passed around.  

The Cosmopolitan

Boulevard Pool

The Cosmopolitan
Open: Mid March
Why you want to go? The multi-level pool has a view of the Strip and plenty of food, drinks, and dance music during the day. Check out brunch (and the Bloody Marys) from the Overlook Grill, and then come back later for a concert at night from the likes of Cage the Elephant, St. Vincent, and Barenaked Ladies.

Daydream

Daydream

The M Resort
Open: Late March
Why you want to go? Daydream brings a Strip-style pool party to the suburbs of Henderson with a day club that caters to locals. Keep your eyes peeled for specials on cabanas and sponsored hosted bars.

Daylight

Daylight

Mandalay Bay
Open: April 17
Why you want to go? The weekend dance party can cram roughly 5,000 people into one spot for big-name DJs like Skrillex and Alesso on Fridays and Saturdays and local acts on Sundays. The elevated stage can be seen from all angles, and is surrounded by high-tech LED screens and more than 20 VIP cabanas. It almost eliminates the need for a nightclub.

Delano

Delano Beach Club

Delano/Mandalay Bay
Open: Early April
Why you want to go? Technically it's part of the massive Mandalay Bay Beach Club, but guests at the Delano get their own spot of sand and a laid-back atmosphere that’s modeled after South Beach. You know… the kind where you nap in the sun while a DJ turns up the volume on the EDM.

Drai’s Beach Club

Drai’s Beach Club

The Cromwell
Open: Early March
Why you want to go? The Cromwell may be an intimate boutique hotel, but its rooftop is a monster nightclub that keeps the party going -- and the music throbbing -- all day long. The view of Vegas from 11 stories above the Strip is worth the visit alone.

Encore Beach Club/Rukes

Encore Beach Club

Wynn Encore
Open: April 3
Why you want to go? This day club is one of the biggest and brightest outdoor bashes in Vegas. It features music from DJs like Zedd and David Guetta, stripper poles by the pool, and themed parties on “Recess Fridays.”

SLS Las Vegas

Foxtail Pool Club

SLS Las Vegas
Open: April 24 (with a chance to win a free two-night getaway and party with DJ Steve Angello)
Why you want to go? SLS Las Vegas opened late last year, so Foxtail is one of the newest options for the day club crowd. It offers a retro look, but its high-tech features are sharp with live-streaming TV screens and 3D mapping on the hotel tower and parking garage at night.

Liquid

Liquid

Aria
Open: Mid March
Why you want to go? More of a lounge than a day club, Liquid offers a small pool and a collection of VIP cabanas with HD TVs and other perks inside, but don't worry there’s still a DJ, beach balls, go-go dancers, etc.

Brenton Ho

Marquee Dayclub

The Cosmopolitan
Open: Early March
Why you want to go? Although short on big name DJs, Marquee Dayclub is still packed with bodies in and around the pool. If you really want to live large, book a three-story bungalow loft that comes complete with living quarters and grand Las Vegas pool cabanas with infinity pools and a party deck on top.

Mandalay Bay

Moorea Beach Club

Mandalay Bay
Open: Late March
Why you want to go? It's probably the most comfortable poolside lounge in Vegas with 12ft day beds, elevated pavilions, and views that look down on the “toptional” beach. Even more impressive than the eye candy are the Moorea Villas on the third level that offer a private pool areas and clear views of the 11-acre Mandalay Beach complex.

Palms

Palms Pool & Dayclub

The Palms
Open: March 13
Why you want to go? Along with a newly modified name, the pool party at the Palms is kicking the entertainment up a notch with PlayStation, Xbox, retro-Nintendo and DirecTV connected to the HD TVs in the cabanas and lily pads to lounge on, but the Champagne showers, high-energy atmosphere, and the “Ditch Fridays” bashes are still around.

Erik Kabik

Rehab

Hard Rock
Open: March 13 (grand opening April 25)
Why you want to go? The original day club showed the rest of ‘em how to do it with thumping music, lots of drinks, and the occasional poolside concert here and there. Choose from three pools to suit your style among the trees and landscaping. New this year: Just The Tip Wednesdays with free admission for locals and industry professionals.  

Al Powers

Tao Beach

Venetian
Open: Mid March
Why you want to go? This pool on the roof of Tao Nightclub is a little on the small side, but it more than makes up for that on Friday/Saturday nights with a high-intensity party atmosphere and some of the best sushi you’ll find near a swimming pool.

Caesars Entertainment

Venus

Caesars Palace
Open: April 10
Why you want to go? Caesars Palace doesn’t really have a day club. But it has Venus, a secluded pool with drinks, music, and a tops-optional policy that makes it feels miles away from the massive family pool next door.

Al Powers

Wet Republic

MGM Grand
Open: Mid March
Why you want to go? Wet Republic remains the top spot for EDM fans. The sprawling pool complex features the biggest top-name DJs such as Calvin Harris, Steve Aoki, and Tiësto. It’s the perfect time to catch them -- and some sun -- while in between their sets at nightclubs Hakkasan and OMNIA.
