A golden, butterfly-motif, $2 billion Yang to the Wynn's Yin, the 63-story Encore is a complexly themed wonderland of classy degeneracy, with 2034 houndstooth-upholstered rooms and a 74,000 sq ft gaming floor partitioned off by columns and curtains, miraculously making your bankruptcy an intimate affair.
The concept behind Hard Rock hotels is simple: people need a place to crash after raging, gambling, eating, and drinking all night. And the Vegas outpost ensures that you'll be able to accomplish all of those things in one spot, with three towers devoted to hotel rooms, the casino, over 200,000sqft of pools, nine restos to booze or grab a bite, plenty of ways to (bachelor) party during your last nights as a free man, and more.
MGM Grand Hotel & Casino offers numerous suites and penthouses for your Vegas vacation. Dine at one of their signature restos (Joel Robuchon, Hakkasan, Craftsteak... to name a few), or relax at the spa or salon.
This luxury casino sports gorgeous accommodations, high-end restos (N9ne Steakhouse, Alize, Nove Italiano), and a spa/salon.
Sapphire hooks up pool party-goers with the ultimate experience: the pool is small enough (for a classier feel), the mixed drinks are worth the $10-$14, and you can dry your neon suit in an actual swimsuit dryer, so you don't leave the premise reeking of tanning oil, booze, and Taylor Swift remixes.
Just a block off the main drag, Rio is one of the better resorts for those traveling in larger groups. The Brazilian-themed hotel's signature "chic suites" sleep six people and features various amenities, live entertainment (Penn and Teller are on retainer, along with the Chippendales), a pool area with an actual white sand beach, and a 490ft high zip-line that connects the hotel's two towers.
A staple in the Vegas resort empire, the Venetian rocks world class accommodations (five diamonds, and diamonds are totally better than stars!), plus killer eats from Delmonico's, Rockhouse, and more.
It's TAO... it's Vegas... it's got a pool.... oh, and it's topless. TAO Beach Club hooks up Vegas dwellers and the elite under cozy cabanas and sexy decor, further completing the Vegas pool party scene you've come to expect.
No Vegas club handles the day-to-night transition quite like Marquee. The premiere spot at The Cosmopolitan is notorious for its dayclub, an exclusive adult oasis you’ll likely recognize for its crystal blue swimming pool with bikini-decked bodies packed like sardines. After guests have successfully dehydrated themselves in the daylight hours (thanks to both sun and cocktails), they can celebrate round two at Marquee’s nightclub, where international house music DJs have year-round residencies. If EDM isn’t your thing, snag a seat in The Library, an elite drinking lounge complete with leather armchairs and pool tables.
