'Matinee' LGBTQ Party Poised to Dominate Busy Holiday Weekend

Where: 455 East Harmon Ave [map], 89169
May 22, 2015 at 11:20 AM | by | Comment (1)

Vegas pool parties are already in full swing, and for the LGBTQ crowd that means weekly hedonistic hard-bodied blowouts...and a few multi-day events.

This coming Memorial Day Weekend marks the fifth year for Matinee Las Vegas, a four-day festival for gay (our preferred shorthand) clubbers that promises bigger/better/hotter than ever before.

In a city that sets the standard for water-centric events, thatís a lot to live up to. Fortunately, the organizers at Matinee Group have 20 years of experience at raising the bar.

Stratosphere To Offer A New Angle On The Vegas Pool Scene

Where: 2000 Las Vegas Boulevard [map], 89104
April 27, 2015 at 5:28 PM | by | Comments (3)

The space that was once Stratosphere's topless pool foray, Beach Club 25, will do a 180 this May. That's when the please-keep-the-tatas-away Radiusļ Rooftop Pool & Wet Lounge, a pool-in-the-daytime, lounge-in-the-nighttime, party-all-the-time experience, makes its debut.

Beach Club 25 closed indefinitely back in June 2011. The pool scene, located 300 feet up on the hotel's 25th floor, stayed dormant all this time.

Just One Dish: Shrimp and Crab Salad Sandwich At Delano Beach Club

Where: 3940 Las Vegas Blvd. S. [map], 89119
April 23, 2015 at 3:49 PM | by | Comments (3)

Usually at pools and beach clubs the food is pretty basic. The menus include classic staples like burgers, sandwiches, fruit platters, chicken strips etc. Nothing extraordinary. When I visit pools, the last thing on my mind is the food. Iím usually more interested in the drinks (donít judge). So, when I recently visited Delano Beach Club, the last thing I expected was to be blown away by a food item on their menu. But, I was.

My guest ordered the Shrimp and Crab Salad Sandwich and I initially cringed. The sounds of crab and shrimp salad didnít appeal to me, especially in the heat and while drinking the beach clubís sweet, sugary drinks. I was wrong about the sandwich, though, and pleasantly surprised. It was fantastic!

Checking Out Delano Beach Club

Where: 3940 Las Vegas Blvd. S. [map], 89119

So, we gave you the scoop on Delano Beach Club, the newest Vegas pool on The Strip. The new kid on the block opened just next to Mandalay Bay Beach a little over a week ago and they invited us to check out the venue first hand.

I went to DBC on a Thursday, which was perfect because that means it wasnít too hectic or crowded. My guest and I were greeted by a group of eager, inviting staff who set us up in chairs right at the edge of the pool. We were informed that the chairs are complimentary if you are a Delano hotel guest and show a room key at the door. This is a plus considering some beach clubs charge hundreds of dollars for a chair (insane. so insane).

Have A Mid-Life Crisis At Encore Beach Club

As clubs keep trying to outdo each other with more and more elaborate bottle service presentations (drone delivery, anyone?), the spectacle is beginning to get out of control even more over the top. Encore Beach Club is upping the ante with two new packages for your indulgence.

First up is the Sons of Beach Club motorcycle-themed offer where a gang of leather bikini-clad servers ride out to your table on a real, production model Harley-Davidson armed with a Nebuchadnezzar (thatís 15 liters) of Veuve Clicquot, Yellow Label plus 20 bottles of house bubbly. Hopefully, thereís a sidecar to hold all that booze. This will set you back $25,000.

How To Feel Good About That Cabana Splurge

Where: 4321 West Flamingo Road [map], 89103
April 14, 2015 at 12:52 PM | by | Comments (4)

Feel good? Why should I need to feel good about renting a cabana? I'm on vacation. It's me time, baby! Okay, we get it. But, if you're interested in warming your heart the same time you fry that bod, Palms' "Cabanas for a Cause" will be around once again.

If you're not familiar with the annual endeavor, each pool season Palms rents out cabanas on select Mondays for $100 each. Yep, just a hundred. And, the proceeds go entirely to charity. This year, such local organizations as the Special Olympics of Southern Nevada, Opportunity Village, Aid for AIDS in Nevada, and more will benefit from your summertime indulgence. A full schedule is detailed below. You can also donate additional money, if you so choose.

There's a lot of sh*t that happens in Vegas and not all of it can make it on our site as a full report. So, every Friday, we take note of some of the smaller announcements around town that may be of interest, too. Here's the rundown for the week of April 6:

WuHu at Silverton: The off-Strip hotel-casino will add a new restaurant, WuHu Noodle, this June.

Presented without comment: SLS is hosting an 18+ pool party Thursday, April 16 at Foxtail. Doors will open at 8 p.m. for what's being called "the sexiest new pool club in Sin City."

Spending The Day At M Resort's Spa Mio

Where: 12300 Las Vegas Blvd. South [map], 89044

Yep, there's a chandelier in the wet area.

It seems like there are two types of spa-goers in Vegas: those who regularly get treatments and those who save up for them and then still agonize over parting with the money just to get a fancy backrub. While I know there is much, much more to the overall ďspa experience,Ē I am firmly in this second category.

When a group of friends wanted to do a spa day at M Resortís Spa Mio, I rejoiced at the 25% off locals discount and decided I should just go for it and get a massage. Even with the generous discount, most of the 50-minute massages were around $100 so I was eager to make sure I got the most out of my hundo. I went early to utilize the gym before my treatment. Iím a creature of habit and only go to my one gym of choice so maybe I just donít know this is a thing, but the Cybex cardio machines had fans on them! This is the most ingenious gym machine feature I have ever encountered and I enjoyed some wind-blown time on the bike and treadmill, with personal TVs obvi, before hitting the weights.

Did I mention the gym looks out over the beautiful M pool deck? Since I went early, it was empty and looked quite tranquil and lovely. Iím not sure how I would have felt if I was staring out the window at toned bodies in swimwear while I was huffing and puffing at the gym, but it beats staring at the walls of the typical workout facility.

What The LINQ's Cabana Rooms Offer To Guests

Where: 3535 Las Vegas Boulevard [map], 89109
March 31, 2015 at 8:50 PM | by | Comments (10)

There aren't many places on the Vegas Strip, outside of The Cosmo and the realm of high roller digs, where guests can step from their room directly onto their own patch of sunlit paradise. The LINQ, however, now offers a moderately priced option.

Instead of booking a room and cabana separately while in Vegas, consider reserving one of the LINQ's 25 cabana rooms instead. Located on the second floor and appearing to be just another standard accommodation from within, these rooms feature a sliding glass door that opens onto a private patio. From there, guests can walk right onto the pool deck (as long as it's between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.)

Service with a smile.

The LINQ's new pool is so fresh and so clean, y'all. And, you can get slizzard (not that slizzard, but since it's 21 and over, a little slizzard) by indulging in its poolside cocktail menu. Here's how you can stay hydrated, while drinking plenty of water, of course, poolside at the LINQ:

We Kinda Don't Want To Tell You How Nice The LINQ's New Pool Is

Where: 3535 Las Vegas Boulevard [map], 89109
March 27, 2015 at 8:28 PM | by | Comments (8)

The LINQ Hotel, a rebranded Quad/IP, keeps pleasantly surprising us. And, we're by no means complaining.

The hotel-casino's new pool deck opened to guests last weekend and, after a tour Thursday, we have no qualms about saying it's the most refreshing find of the 2015 pool season. (Sorry, Delano Beach Club.) The drab, concert slab of the past (and that awful faux rock display) has been ripped out and replaced with a super cute, beach-y vibe, from a textured deck reminiscent of white-sand beaches to the wooden planks in the cabanas.
