In Vegas, it doesn’t get better than pool party season. After all, what’s better than beautiful people, world-class DJs, live music acts, killer mixology, and epic pools to jump in when all the above get too hot to handle? The season gets in full swing this month up and down the Strip, and elsewhere in Sin City. All pool parties are not created equal, however, which is why we’ve narrowed down our favorite venues to get wet.

What: Foxtail Pool Club at SLS Las Vegas
Why: An art deco-lover’s dream, the Philippe Starck designed pool at Foxtail is as decadent as it is stylish. Go the communal route at this upscale location and rub elbows with international jet-setters, Vegas locals, and LA weekenders; or, get more intimate with a private cabana, and invite your crew. Check out the epic lineup for April and May below.
When to go: Fridays and Saturdays, 10 am – 6 pm


What: Marquee Dayclub at The Cosmopolitan
Why: By day, you’ll find high rollers, trendsetters, and fashionistas, who love to keep going even after the sun goes down.
When to go: Friday – Sunday, 11 am – Sunset


What: Drai’s Beach Club at The Cromwell
Why: This newbie doesn’t disappoint, with a rooftop pool, towering palm trees, and live music lined up from Chris Brown and Pusha T, to name a few.
When to go: Friday – Sunday, 11 am – 6 pm


What: Encore Beach Club at the Encore at Wynn Las Vegas
Why: Big acts like Diplo and Avicii make for an incredible dance experience, and then there are the little details like rum drinks served in real coconuts.
When to go: Friday – Sunday, 11 am – 6 pm
