We are really lovin’ the pool at The LINQ this summer. (Go here for our story on the all-new pool deck.) And now there are a few more reasons why you should pop in on your next trip to town. Ahem competing Strip pools, take notes.

TONIGHT: The LINQ Pool is teaming up with USA Table Tennis to bring Ping Pong by the Pool. This party will kick off at 8 p.m. and it will feature 20 Ping-Pong tables for guests to play on and over 30,000 Ping-Pong balls that will fill the pools. This event goes until midnight and it is free to the public (score!) There will be Miller Lite, Coors Light and Herradura Tequila drink specials all night.

A Semi-Helpful Cheat Sheet in Deciding Which Vegas Pool Scene is Right For You

June 5, 2015 at 6:30 PM | by | Comments (19)

The other day, it was announced that the pool at the Hard Rock Las Vegas was the best pool in all of America, freaky sex shenanigans be damned. Well, this set off a heated debate in comments underneath the story.

But the most helpful comment came from @My Eye on Vegas, who quickly rounded-up some of the pool scenes in Vegas with his own commentary. It kinda reminds us of that time our high school published a blind item in the school newspaper about how where you sat in the cafeteria determined your social status in life, but very much like that blind item that nearly rocked our scrunchies off our ponytails, this commentary has much truth to it.

And since we're slow to get out annual Field Guide to the Vegas Pool Scene (cough, we're still working on our "pool" body, cough) this clever comparison will have to do now.

Agree, disagree? Sound off in comments below.

MY EYE ON VEGAS' EYE ON THE VEGAS POOL SCENE

The Boulevard Pool at The Cosmopolitan: Best jacuzzi, best looking crowd. Snooty people, sad to say probably the least-friendly service. My friends complain about them and Marquee nightclub.

ENCORE BEACH CLUB AT ENCORE: Age 25 to 35, posers and wannbes.

DRAI'S BEACH CLUB AT THE CROMWELL: Best views.

HARD ROCK LAS VEGAS: Best pools, not events or Rehab, but actual pools.

WET REPUBLIC AT MGM GRAND: Best celebrity-spotting. This is about them all- muscle head, steroids, East Coast and Cali Clientele, strippers, and very diverse clientele. Drugs still get in. Yes, marijuana is an illegal drug still. 20s/30s/40s

You Can Now Throw Your Own Pool Party on The Vegas Strip

June 5, 2015 at 2:07 PM | by | Comments (4)

Are you sick and tired of dealing with randoms having sex next to you at all the pool parties currently in session in Las Vegas? Do you ever wish for a pool party for just you and your ladies and homies to attend ? Well, if you've got about $7,000, you can do it.

Caesars Palace has opened up their Bacchus and the Jupiter pools for Vegas-goers to rent. Each pool area holds up to 120 people and plenty of space for your party people to spread out amongst eight daybeds, eight cabanas, and up to 80 lounge chairs.

But of course, a pool party isn’t too much fun if everyone is just standing around so you can add on a food and drink package and also hire a DJ to play some sweet jams. The pool is available to anyone from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. but after-hours parties can be approved by pool management with additional labor costs.

The cost to rent a pool starts at $6,500 plus a 4% service charge. Food and beverage and DJ packages are separate and will cost more.

Besides being a total baller rental for you and your bros, the pool areas would make an excellent venue for a corporate meeting and/or cocktail party. For more information on reserving a pool you can call Total Experiences locally at 702-731-7238 or 1-855-855-9205.

Where You Can Play Blackjack Poolside in Las Vegas This Summer

May 28, 2015 at 5:40 PM | by | Comments (25)

This weekend, temperatures are expected to hit 100 degrees in Las Vegas for the first time this year. And there’s no turning back. We’ll feel this dry heat (this east coast transplant says that's a real thing) for the next few months. Spending time indoors with air conditioning can be a nice relief from the heat, but so can hanging outside by the pool with a nice frosty beverage.

But if you’re a gambler like this guy, sitting around Las Vegas just drinking frosty drinks can get boring after a while. What better way to get liven up the day by the pool than by gambling a little? Thankfully there are more than a few casinos all over Las Vegas dealing poolside blackjack. Take a look:

Stratosphere's Adults-Only Radius Pool Has A Lot To Offer

Where: 2000 Las Vegas Blvd. South [map], 89104

I like my coconut drinks with a view.

It can’t compete with the sight lines from Level 107 or Top of the World, but Stratosphere’s new Radius Pool offers tasty food, drinks and scenic views. The new adults-only pool will be open during the day and in the evening, making it a great place to soak up some rays and view the sunset.

Spicy chicken skewers.

The food selection rivals any other pool café on the Strip and includes tropical inspired dishes. The crispy pork belly bao sliders with Asian slaw and cilantro pesto ($12) are especially good. The caramelized chile pineapple chicken skewers ($12) are definitely on the spicy side but full of flavor. Pepper seared ahi tuna tataki with chukka noodle salad and Thai vinaigrette ($15) is a light yet flavor-packed dish. Other dishes include burgers, chicken sandwiches and salads.

'Matinee' LGBTQ Party Poised to Dominate Busy Holiday Weekend

Where: 455 East Harmon Ave [map], 89169

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, that’s 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 Radiusº 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. I’m usually more interested in the drinks (don’t 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 didn’t appeal to me, especially in the heat and while drinking the beach club’s 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
April 20, 2015 at 9:32 PM | by | Comments (4)

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 wasn’t 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

Where: 3121 Las Vegas Boulevard S. [map], 89109

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 (that’s 15 liters) of Veuve Clicquot, Yellow Label plus 20 bottles of house bubbly. Hopefully, there’s 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.
