Sweet Summer Days: The Best Vegas Pool Parties

Last updated: August 6, 2018 at 12:38 pm. Posted by in Things to Do in Las Vegas. No Comments on Sweet Summer Days: The Best Vegas Pool Parties.

Pool + party = double the fun. Whether you want to work on your tan and party during the day or prefer sleeping in and swimming at night, you’re in for a real treat this summer. Catch all that’s happening at these Las Vegas pools:

Not only will you feel like you’re in paradise in the middle of the Strip, the Flamingo has two pool areas offering two very different feels. Whether you’re in the mood to watch your favorite artists from back in the day or to experience a wild pool party at night, the choice is yours.

GO Pool parties

The parties at GO Pool Dayclub go hard. Not only will you enjoy live concerts from the pool (last year we hung out with R&B singer Mya and it was a blast), you might be brave enough to compete in the booty shaking contests.

But if you’re like us who would need tons of liquid courage to even consider that, watching a poolside show is perfectly fine too. And these aren’t unknown Soundcloud rappers. These are musicians who have had multiple radio hits. In addition to Mya, other acts who graced the stage last year include Tinashe, Montell Jordan and Sugar Ray’s Mark McGrath, to name a few.

Additionally, GO Pool Dayclub offers beer specials and live DJ-spun music on non-concert days.

Country Cabana Concert Series At Flamingo 

Ready to add some twang to your trip? You can catch the Country Cabana Concert Series throughout the summer at GO Pool. Check out this summer’s lineup:

  • Aug. 29: Midland with Tyler Rich
  • Sept. 11: Russell Dickerson
  • Sept. 26: Chris Janson with Jordan Davis

The 21-and-older concert series sells each of these shows for $20 each (before taxes and fees). Doors open at 7 p.m. and all shows start at 8 p.m.

Electric Safari (LGBT night) at Flamingo Beach Club

When the sun sets at Flamingo Beach Club, the party’s just begun. The Beach Club hosts Electric Safari LGBT night swim every week (every Thursday and starting July 13, every Friday). Hear live DJ-spun music as you swim and dance the night away. Expect fun cocktail specials and unicorn floaties too.

Admission is only $10 ($5 for locals) and the party runs from 9 p.m. – 3 a.m. Find out more about Electric Safari at Flamingo Beach Club here.

This summer hang out poolside to party, play or watch a movie at the Rio Las Vegas pool

Take a break from the hype and go on an off-Strip adventure — it’s not that far, either. VooDoo Beach at the Rio has something for everyone:

Party poolside with themed events 

Why wait until Halloween to dress up? VooDoo Beach celebrates summer like no other pool with themed parties each month. Upcoming events include:

  • Aug. 25: Poolside luau

Unwind with live acoustic music

Get in touch with your mellow side: Relax poolside and enjoy a free acoustic performance on select Saturdays each month on the following dates: July 7, Aug.18 and Sept. 1. The event runs from 7 p.m. – 11 p.m. on those days.

Dive-in Movies 

Who doesn’t enjoy a good movie? Sip, splash and see some of your all-time favorite movies at VooDoo Beach on select Fridays and additional evenings throughout the summer. Movies begin around sunset each night and can be seen from a large projection screen behind the pool. Lounge seating is first-come, first-served. And hey, you can even watch in the water. The best part of all? This is free and open to the public.

The following dive-in movies this summer include:

  • Aug. 24: Cars 3
  • Sept. 14: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
  • Sept. 28: Black Panther

Beer pong and volleyball tournaments 

Let’s be real: Playing beer pong at the pool beats your foldout table or kitchen island at home. For this 21-and-older event, challenge your buds to a game now through July 5, 9-12 and 16-19.

Or, you can work on your spike. Things heat up in August with beach volleyball contests on the following dates: Aug. 6-9, 13-16 and 20-23.

Detox to retox with booze yoga at The Rio

Guests 21 and older are invited to get their savasana on every Friday and Saturday at 10 a.m. Pricing is $25 for a one-hour class, which also includes two drinks of your choice. With a deal like that, you’ll be telling your friends, “Namaste right here.” Sign up for booze yoga at the Rio now.

Watch the Vegas pool party or be in the pool party at Influence - The Pool at The LINQ

The LINQ Hotel & Casino

Chill. Party. Whatever you feel like doing, Influence – The POOL at The LINQ embraces your style. You can be in full relaxation mode (like this guy above) or making new friends in the pool. Either way, you get a killer view of the 550-foot-tall High Roller wheel. Here’s what you can enjoy at the 21-and-older pool (by the way, there’s also never a cover charge – score!).

Tropical Saturdays

Enjoy live DJ-spun music during this high-energy tropical pool party. Take a break and challenge your friends at one of the pool tables or other games in the area.

Champagne Sundays

Champagne wishes FTW: Come thirsty — for every bottle you buy, you’ll get a free bottle of Champagne. Or, enjoy buy-one-get-one free pitchers of mimosas. Champagne Sundays also has live DJ-spun music.

Mountain Dew Ice Days (select Saturdays)

Enjoy the city’s top DJs as they spin live music from the pool. Enjoy cabana and drink specials, as well as surprise entertainment. Mountain Dew Ice Days are on the following dates: Aug.18 and Sept. 1.

Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino

Say the following sentence five times fast, we dare you: See and be seen at The Scene. (Don’t worry — we just tried it!) Now that we got that out of the way, plan a day at The Scene Pool Deck, located on the sixth floor at Planet Hollywood. Choose your scene with two completely different vibes every weekend:

Mountain Dew Ice Saturdays

Sponsored by Mountain Dew, party on the rooftop pool that includes live DJ music, celebrity emcees (Nick Cannon hosted here last year) and talent; bikini contests with a $500 cash prize and Mountain Dew signature drink specials.

Reggae Sundays 

For something more chill, head to The Scene Pool Deck during Reggae Sundays from 1-6 p.m. You’ll hear live reggae, Caribbean bands and DJ-spun music. Irie!

About The Author

I live for a crazy Vegas adventure, but not in ways you may think. Sure, our nightlife scene is all fun and dandy, but I love discovering all of the city's vegan options, relaxing in hotel rooms and seeing the best concerts - no matter how big or small the crowd may be. Since I've ditched the rain in Seattle two decades ago, I graduated from UNLV and covered Las Vegas entertainment articles for Vegas.com, the LA Times and our very own Total Vegas Blog. When I'm not writing, you'll find me spending time with my husband, toddler and two pets.
