What to wear to Vegas pool party?

What to wear to a pool party in Vegas, any dress code?

It is pretty simple unless it is a nighttime party, wear a swimsuit.

Avoid sports attire, like jerseys or gym shorts.  Avoid ripped hard sole shoes or boots, see-through clothing, baggy clothing, or anything offensive. 

Each pool might have its own set of rules, so be sure to check each to be sure. 

Some pools have a stricter dress code than others, but you’re safe wearing a swimsuit, sandals or flip-flops and a tank top or swimsuit cover-up.

Generally speaking, for proper pool party attire, dress as if you were going to the beach.

las vegas pool party prices

Vegas Pool Party Prices

Like most things Vegas, visitors should anticipate a major markup on goods and services. Plan to bring a significant amount of cash, credit cards for backup, and of course, ID. Know that you’ll likely spend more money than you had planned, as it’s easy to throw caution to the wind in this carefree fun under the sun environment.

Entry fees vary depending on the day of the week and who is performing.  In general, male guests can expect to pay $50 to get in.  Female cover charge, on the other hand, is determined by your level of sexy, the hotter you look, the less you pay and may even grant you free entry.

As a general rule, men pay more to enter clubs than women, no such thing as gender equality here!

What are the drink prices at Pool Parties?

Prices for drinks at a Vegas pool party are similar to what you’d expect at an upscale restaurant, bar, or nightclub in Vegas.  A single beer will be close to $10, whereas specialty cocktails could cost you $20 or more.

Bottle prices usually start around $400 and specialty drink pitchers around $100.

Vegas Pool party Tip – Partygoers should bring as few possessions as possible to the pool and know that any bag you take may be subject to search. Consider how to keep your cash and credit cards safe and dry—think waterproof armband, pouch, wristlet, etc.

You’ll also want to keep track of your other belongings, like your shoes…but then again, going home barefoot may be well worth an epic Vegas memory.

How To Get Into A Pool Party

There are several options to get into a pool party, some better and cheaper than others.

Pay Cover:  As mentioned above, guests (especially males) can expect to wait in line and pay a cover charge at day clubs.

Buy Presale Tickets:  Avoid the hassle and get fast entry with event tickets.  You can see the ticket listings below and avoid the long waits and hassles.  You can also check out the full Vegas DJ Schedules for tickets to nightclubs, lounges, and day clubs.

Guestlist: Some pool parties offer guestlist access.  This is basically only for women and perhaps couples.  You can contact a club host and see if you can get added to a guest list which may speed up your time in the line and avoid entry altogether.

VIP Entry/Bottle Service at pool Parties

VIP access is obviously the most expensive but could end up being cost-effective as well for larger groups of guys.

Guarantee entry to a pool party by purchasing a VIP package. This option is similar to bottle service at a nightclub, where a set minimum spend will grant you seating with table service, bottles and mixers, except at a day club food can be counted toward your minimum as well.

VIP options such as a daybed or cabana is highly recommended for a group of guys that wants to avoid cover, long wait times, and drink a fair amount of liquor.  It is also hard not to have a great time with this option!

VIP service minimums vary based on demand such as holiday weekends or popular DJs performing.  Guests can anticipate a minimum charge of around $1,000 for a daybed and up to $5000 for a  cabana on a busy weekend. This package may be the only way to go if you plan to attend with a large group of guys.

While it may sound pricey and $1,000 of liquor (around 2 bottles) may not go far if your group gets too big, it’s well worth the cost to ensure entry, a primo location near the pool, and a greater chance of getting attention from the ladies.

You can read our las vegas bottle service guide for a more in-depth look at the breakdown in costs for Bottle services and compare it to paying cover charge only.

When is the Pool Party Season in Las Vegas?

Pool parties generally start the first week of March, catering to the masses of college students coming to Las Vegas for their respective spring breaks.  They will continue to operate on select days of the week through late September or early October, when summer temps begin to fall and Vegas starts wrapping up tourist season.

A majority of the pool parties will host an official grand opening party to kick-off pool party season, sometimes a few weeks to a month after the pool parties have actually begun. 

Tip: To make sure your preferred pool party has formally opened for the season, check out our article on official vegas pool opening dates.

Be mindful of holiday weekends when attending pool parties.  Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends draw larger crowds that create extra-long lines and wait times, which diminish your odds of getting in.

Club-goers looking for big crowds and rowdy atmospheres will enjoy these weekends but should plan on paying a premium for a cover charge or VIP service.

Hotel Pools vs. Pool Parties

One of the main things that separate Pool Parties from Hotel pools are the DJs and entertainment options.

Pool parties typically have live DJ sets or headlining performers whereas hotel pools generally don’t have any pre-set entertainment or loud music. 

Think of a pool party as a club during the day with many young beautiful women. 

Hotel pools are typically more laid back and open to all ages and are generally a place to lounge in the sun.  There usually is not any paid entry requirement for hotel pools. 

Several of the major Las Vegas Strip resorts feature both a pool party and a hotel pool in separate areas.  Vegas has some of the best hotel pools in the country, many of which offer a family-friendly pool atmosphere as well.

topless las vegas pool

Are there any topless pool parties in Vegas?

Yes, Bare pool at Mirage and Moorea Beach at Mandalay Beach are two topless pool options in Vegas.  Both pools offer a secluded and secure pool experience with many VIP options such as day beds and cabanas.

Bare is open Friday to Monday while Moorea Beach is open Monday through Sunday 11 am to 6 pm. 

Where is REHAB pool party?

Rehab pool party no longer exists.  It previously was located at the Hard Rock hotel in Vegas, which has sold and rebranded as Virgin Hotels. 

Rehab, held from 2004 to 2018, started the pool party scene in Las Vegas and soon other pools offer their own pool party versions. 

More FAQs

What do I bring to a Las Vegas pool party?

Aside from the usual essentials like hats, sunscreen, and sunglasses, you should also bring your ID for valid identification. Instead of cash, use a credit card to avoid soggy paper bills. 

How long does a Vegas pool party usually last?

Pool parties open at around 11 in the morning and continue until 6 in the evening, depending on the weather. However, there are clubs that continue well into the night.
