The Heat is on: Las Vegas Pool Party

Daytime is the right time to dip in to the scene on the strip this season. Las Vegas’ pool destinations and day life are so seductive its rivaling Vegas’ world-class clubs and notorious nightlife. It’s easy to see why. Here are three of the hottest spots on the strip to see and be seen in a bikini this summer.

Steve Wynn always manages to one up himself. This summer is no different with the opening of the Encore Beach Club, the premiere daytime destination for jetsetters right on the strip. Set to open on Memorial day Weekend this 60,000 square foot oasis includes 40-foot palm trees surrounding three tiered pools, floating lily pads for lounging lesbians and outdoor shower poles for that seductive daytime dancing.

Guests can linger in one of the 26 luxury cabanas or move it up a notch and choose one of the 8 ultra premium two-story poolside bungalows complete with private hot tubs, showers, lush furnishings and individual cooling systems. If your girl needs to get her game on, there is a gaming pavilion on site for blackjack and craps. Famed DJ Kaskade will be spinning and scoring your winning sequence. Bravo!

Available for hotel guests only 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. (

If you can’t get enough of the summer aquatics book a reservation for Le Reve at The Wynn next door. It’s a blissfully sexy show set largely in or underwater. The show has recently been reworked. So, if you think you’ve seen Le Reve. Think again. It is sexier than ever. Opt for the VIP seating with champagne and chocolate covered strawberries and a private TV screen to capture underwater erotic aquatics and offstage antics. After Le Reve hit Encore’s lush club XS wrapped around a pool. Now that’s hot! (

Encore caters to the gay community, so much so that they have a Pride Concierge on staff 24/7 to cater to their gay clientele’s each and every need ensuring a seamless and sexy stay. They can secure reservations and show tickets and also suggest gay and gay friendly bars and provide periodicals and magazines published for the LGBT community. For more information on special packages and information on their LGBT concierge. (


Caesars Palace’s Garden of the Gods remains an unrivaled, iconic and sophisticated spot. Several sun and countless Hollywood Goddesses have long favored this grand and opulent Greek and Roman style pool garden. Nothing can compare to the Caesars scene. Today they’ve upped the luxury ante even more with the addition of five more pools complete with luxury amenities, to their existing three. Fortuna boasts an 18-foot waterfall where guests can swim-up to their blackjack table. You and your girl can play in your bikinis, grabbing quick dips between hands.

Bacchus is elevated 18 feet above the others offers private butlers, grand views and is available to invited guests only. If the decadence is more than you can handle, slip in to the Jupiter pool for a private spa service in a breezy poolside cabana by Qua Baths & Spa. It’s great midday move. You can toast your good fortune with a freshly made cocktail and fish soft tacos served in your own private cabana complete with tunes and a plasma TV. You will feel like a Greek Goddess as you enjoy this slice of heaven. (

Aria’s LIQUID Pool Lounge, ARIA’s adults-only experience in City Center offers an opulent poolside experience. This pool is clearly designed with the sexy jetset in mind. If you dare to bare no one will care in this enclave. Topless is timely in the center of this city.


If you’ve yet to check out City Center, this is the perfect time to dip in. The Light Group, responsible countless clubs and restaurants in Vegas are the muscle behind this machine. So, they are mot playing. If you like Haze, Jet, The Bank, Liquid or dig the dish at Yellowtail, Dibalo or Union, then you know you’re in good hands. Hills hottie Kristin Cavallari recently hosted a pool party at Liquid. She donned a black Gucci bikini and uber high heels. You get the picture.

There’s a full restaurant and bar service poolside with a playful poolside menu. You can snack on King Crab & Jalapeño Tacos while sipping on a LIQUID Rita, hit the private dipping pool or simply unwind in your cabana with a 42 inch screen, Ipod dock and internet  access. Set to bring in world class DJ’s. You won’t skip a beat at LIQUID with their underwater speakers. Now that is city slick! (
