The weather is finally warm and competition is heating up for the best pool parties in Las Vegas. Fun in the sun, not nightclubs, are what guests from around the country seek in 2018. The world's best DJs headlining multi million dollar aquatic bashes where day drinking, swimming, cabanas, and endless dancing are things entertainment juggernauts deliver eight months out of the year. Beginning in March until October, trailblazers like Zedd, Marshmello, and Claude VonStroke can be seen enjoying the best desert parties around while fans get down to bathing suits and bottle service. In celebration of this amazing time of the year, here are TMEG’s Best Pool Parties in Las Vegas.
Daylight Beach Club
While Electronic Dance Music (EDM) and the Light Group have been a monumental pairing over the years, generating millions of dollars in revenue, the Daylight Beach Club made TMEG's list due to more hyphy acts booked for the summertime. Yes, Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) headliners Ookay and Duke Dumont can be seen performing at Mandalay Bay’s afternoon bash, however, Lit Sundays featuring Rick Ross, Ludacris, Jeezy, and Metro Boomin are bringing the best hip hop artists under one roof...or should I say lack of roof. Putting the “lit” in “legit,” Daylight’s push to booking rap artists is paying off as it has been 2018’s biggest comeback in the music industry, giving fans more reasons to work hard and twerk harder.
Encore Beach Club
Wynn Nightlife can be seen as the most committed company in Las Vegas to its entertainment program. Backed by hotel and casino revenue, money is pouring into exceedingly trendy and recognizable DJs to perform at their Encore Beach Club and Nightswim parties hosted throughout the week. David Guetta, The Chainsmokers, Jauz, and Diplo give clubgoers a plethora of tunes to dip low to under either the sun or moon. As one of the pioneers in throwing daytime ragers on the Strip, the Encore Beach Club provides plenty of room for people to relax and be served drinks while top 40 artists spin. Recently, the Wynn doubled down and opened an evening pool party known as the Nightswim. Perfect for anyone who has daytime responsibilities but nighttime fever, XS expands its reach into a massive swimming area where an additional gambling cabana with full bar staff is opened for business, providing ultimate convenience for everyone looking to let loose.
Rated as one of the top dayclubs in the world, the Hakkasan Group’s Wet Republic brings serious noise and plenty of toys to the highest attended afternoon party in the City of Lights. As the hottest gathering for weekend warriors, guests rush the doors to see Kaskade, Above & Beyond, Martin Garrix, and the King himself, Tiesto, throw down their best progressive house sets. A bar area stretching nearly two-hundred and fifty yards, a 1,200 square-foot LED wall, and six VIP private dipping pools are why Wet Republic has a dominating market share. Additionally, the most liked dayclub page on Facebook also showcases bikini bottle service and private cabana quarters within walking distance of the MGM Hotel. Good tunes & good times thrive as Wet Republic’s model-filled staff sprays crowds with super soakers filled with champagne as Zedd & Calvin Harris can be seen showing off their next Billboard #1 hits.
People wanting entertainment earlier in the afternoon need to look no further than the Daylight, Encore Beach Club, and Wet Republic parties. Becoming the quickest and most exciting experiences to attend over the past few years, these festivities have trended around the globe as companies open variations in Bali, Cabo San Lucas, and Miami. TMEG’s recognition of these great summer bashes show what anyone who has attended Spring Break has known for years, that nothing beats having fun in the sun.
