It may not be summer officially, but the temps in Vegas have called for poolside relaxation for weeks now. And, while the LVH pool may not be at the top of your list (or, let's keep it real, on your list at all), this just might get you to reconsider.
LVH has launched a daily "Cool by the Pool" happy hour that's open to not just guests, but to all who want to pop by. Set for 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., the best draw may be the chance to work on your tan for free while pregaming with 2-for-1 drink specials. Two dollar shrimp cocktails will also be offered. If that's not enough, LVH promises daily drawings with "fabulous prizes," too. If you win one, let us know how fabulous fabulous is.
LVH's pool deck can be found on the third floor.
With nightclubs and day clubs, Las Vegas is a 24-7 party. Day clubs (some with pools, some without) make it easy for you to get your daytime debauchery on. You’re in Vegas, after all. Why wait ‘til the sun goes down to start drinking and dancing?
Recently, we were invited to visit one of the newer additions to the day and pool club scene, Bagatelle Beach at Tropicana, for some al fresco fun. Our party had a great time, but not without a few downsides. Here's the pros and cons:

Stripper pool meet world. World meet stripper pool. When it comes to scoping out the new Sapphire Pool & Day Club there's more than one way to skin a cat. There's the in-person and high-powered zoom lens methods that we recommend, but not everyone has that kind of time or commitment. Thanks to the World Wide Web, the at-home voyeur can peek inside the pool by following it on Facebook (SapphireDayClub), Twitter (@SapphireDayClub), and Instagram (sapphiredayclub). Ya know, basically what the Internet was created for.
Pretty sure you only need two reasons to follow the Stripper Pool but since we're overacheivers we'll go for seven:

Daylight Beach Club won't welcome the scantily clad until Memorial Day weekend, but you know we're way too curious to wait until then to see it.
The adults only pool scene will call Mandalay Bay home and, no, it won't replace toptional Moorea Beach Club. We popped by this morning to see how things were shaping up about one month out. A green privacy fence obscured a lot, but wasn't tall enough to conceal a sea of new cabana structures, among other buildings (shown above). We also spied concrete being poured and more than 20 palm trees waiting to be moved into position.

There's nothing finer than laying out poolside in Vegas. Unless, of course, you have a shady retreat, steps away. But, just how much will that cabana by the pool cost you?
We found out the hard way last year that uncovering price tags for cabanas can be a difficult feat. Some resorts are wary of stating a starting fee, especially as cabana pricing can fluctuate just as much as room rates. Check out our updated list below for a sampling of charges*, but keep in mind -- just like last year -- the prices you hear in person may be higher than the ones on your screen. And, speaking of higher? Some rates have jumped by one to several hundred dollars a day.
Grass. Slides. Diving boards. Rafts. Inner tubes. Vegas pools of today may think they're all that, but they ain't got nothing on the pool scenes of yesteryear.
The Las Vegas News Bureau recently released file footage reminding us how lost Vegas really made fun in the sun, well, fun. No DJ required. Check out this video compilation showing Vegas pool life spanning the 40s to the 60s.

Just because you're staying at one Vegas resort doesn't mean you're limited to that pool. Certain Vegas hotels will let you buy your way in to soak up the sun, and we're not talking about those adults-only pool parties, either. Here are a few of the Strip pools that will let you pay to play:
Garden of the Gods
$20 admission fee for non-hotel guests Friday through Sunday (must be 21+)
Daily, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
*Complimentary entry for up to four guests with a Caesars Palace or Nobu room key
$10 cover charge for non-hotel guests (down $10 from last year)
Free if a guest at another Caesars Entertainment property
Daily, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Vegas pool season is here, baby! With highs finally climbing into the 80s, the time is now to get nearly naked, poolside. And, for the first time, you don't have to
ask friends if they have an old MO key card book a stay at Mandarin Oriental to lounge poolside at Mandarin Oriental.
The CityCenter resort is now opening its 8th floor pool (shown above) to everyone... willing to book a cabana. Before you pfft, rates start at the fairly reasonable (for Vegas pools, anyway) rate of $350 and includes a bottle of Moet Ice champagne (a $60-ish dollar value according to Google).

DAYLIGHT Beach Club is taking over the resort's auxiliary pool (referred to previously as the South or Landshark Lagoon). We first reported the news back in November. The pool experience will span 50,000 square feet and will offer "three wet decks," a vine-shaded stage (see below) for DJs and live acts, and six LED screens for your viewing pleasure. Its 'vibe' will be influenced by Mediterranean party spot, Ibiza:

Vegas is one month away from its stripper pool.
Sapphire Pool & Day Club will open for the season sometime in April. When we first reported on the news of its coming arrival back in December, we didn't quite know what we were getting. Now, we do thanks to a teaser photo posted on its Facebook page earlier this week.

It's almost here! Pool season is almost back and we've got the opening dates of some of Las Vegas' hottest pool scenes, including one that opens tomorrow!
But, have no fear if you've been slacking off on your PX90 routine or stripper pole workouts, you've still got a few more months to go before the unofficial kick off of pool season, Memorial Day Weekend. We'll roll out our annual field guide just before then, but if any of you Vegas Virgins need help with applying the SPF (sexy pool factor) you can revisit our 2012 guide HERE.
