Some Vegas locals would say that the Winter/ Spring in Vegas are usually reserved for the good ol’ gym. During these times, you will find Vegas locals are hard at work trying their very best to look good for the next Vegas pool season, and you know what, all that hard work sure pays off. Take a sneak peek into one of the best Vegas Pools and you will agree (I recommend Tao Beach). The prices for these sneak peeks are, eh, not too bad, about $20-$30 per person, same amount as a nightclub entree fee. Like always, the drink prices in these places may be a bit steep (about $17 for your basic mixed drink) but here’s a Vegas tip for ya, get alcohol elsewhere, always get alcohol elsewhere.
Lee’s Discount Liquor is usually a Vegas local’s favorite. The selection is huge and the prices can be ridiculously cheap, the cheapest in town. Plus, they are fairly close by, regardless of where you are in Vegas. If you are on the Las Vegas Strip, the closest one is probably south of the Las Vegas Boulevard passed Luxor Casino heading towards the Southpoint casino.
Now, unfortunately, you can’t bring your bottles into a Vegas pool, but the reason behind getting liquor or beer elsewhere is so that you won’t have to spend so much at the pool. And with pool drinks costing about $12-$17 per drink, you can still save money even if you drink both your BYOB, and felt a little thirsty at the pool too! So, if wet the noodle, pound a few before entering, and save.
As strange as it may sound, Vegas pool time is not really swim time. It’s more of a place to just relax, mingle and party. You will find some of the greatest DJs like Deadmau5, Skrillex, Diplo, Calvin Harris and Tiesto you’ll even catch spinning there. So, next time you catch yourself melting in the Las Vegas summer sun, skip to my lou to one of the many Vegas pools on the Las Vegas Strip. Here’s a list of some of the best Vegas Pools:
1. Encore Beach Club
2. Tao Beach
3. Mandalay Bay Beach Club
4. Marquee Day Club
5. Liquid Pool Lounge at Aria
6. MGM’s – Wet Republic
7. Mirage – Bare Pool
