The Las Vegas Party Pools
Hardrock Rehab (above)
Many Las Vegas casinos advertise pools for adults only that aren’t topless pools. These are primarily party pools and they definitely get wild on hot summer days.
Many have events, like bikini contests, twister games, celebrity-birthday bashes, lots of drink specials, dancing, DJs spinning the music at top volume, etc. The crowds for these pools are young, hip, and pretty drunk by sundown, and many continue after dark, sometimes in the pool areas and sometimes in connected nightclubs.
If you’re just looking to have fun, meet people, and maybe get laid, and seeing nipples is not a priority, you might want to check out some of these party pools. Most are open to the public, some for an entry fee, some free. I don’t review them here, but you can find more information about these pools and their events at Las Vegas Advisor in the “Cool Pools” section, and on Twitter@ToplessVegas.
The most popular party pools are (in no particular order): Aria’s “Liquid Pool Lounge,” Hard Rock’s “Rehab,” M Resort’s “Daydream Pool Club,” MGM Grand’s “Wet Republic” (bikini contest every Friday), the Palms’ “Palms Pool” (“Ditch Friday” is the only day open to the public), Planet Hollywood’s “Pleasure Pool” (bikini contest every Saturday), and my personal favorite, the Sapphire Pool and Day Club, which is both a party pool with celebrity DJs and Hollywood types, girls in teeny bikinis passing out shooters, parties within parties in the cabanas, etc., but also like a strip club in the sunshine, where the Sapphire dancers go to party and work on their tans (click to read the review, or see the pool website).
