The best venues for Spring Break in Las Vegas
By Zachary Hayworth
March is one of the best times in Las Vegas and Spring Break gets the party started. The weather is mild (well, for the desert), the college crowd is out in full force, and the pools are opening for the season. Las Vegas has several amazing venues for pool season. Commonly referred to as “dayclubs”, these venues offer similar services as nightlife venues during the day. From private cabanas with table service to world-famous DJs and EDM artists, Las Vegas is the go-to place for fun during the day. Red Carpet VIP can arrange the ultimate experience for all dayclubs including Encore Beach Club, Wet Republic, Tao Beach, Marquee Dayclub, Drai’s Beach Club, and Rehab.
Tao Beach and Marquee Dayclub are at the Venetian and the Cosmopolitan, respectively. They are owned and operated by the same nightlife company, the Tao Group. Marquee Club is open daily from 11 a.m. until the sun goes down. There is a grand opening performance by Ciara on March 19. The Marquee Dayclub spans 22,000 square feet and offers two pools, several bars, and a gaming area. Tao Beach brings all aspects of the Tao restaurant into a daytime party. Located at the Venetian, it is the self-proclaimed “Number One Pool Party in Las Vegas.”
Wet Republic is an absolutely massive pool party that was one of the first of its kind since its debut in 2008. It is over 50,000 square feet with two giant pools measuring 6,000 square feet alone. This pool has some of the most brilliant décor and plants. Some of the most famous DJs host the outdoor pool parties, including Steve Aoki, Tiesto, and Calvin Harris.
Encore at the Wynn is a three-level pool party complex with exceptional landscaping. It is exactly what you would expect from the Wynn as far as elegance and atmosphere. In addition, it boasts some of the most spectacular private bungalows out of any pool party in Las Vegas. Encore is open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., has a full food menu, and top EDM artists.
Drai’s Beach Club is one of the newest beach clubs in Las Vegas. It has exceptional detail and many feel it has set the standard for the Vegas dayclub experience. Drai’s has the best view of any dayclub, as it is 11 stories above the Las Vegas strip. It contains lush palm trees and both indoor and outdoor seating. Drai’s Beach Club is connected to Drai’s Nightclub, both of which attract the top DJs and musical performers.
Last, but not least, Rehab at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino is the originator of daylife. Open Friday to Sunday, from 11 a.m. until sunset, Rehab hosts some of the most notorious summer and spring break pool parties. Spring Break kicks off in mid-March. For Rehab, the venues mentioned above, as well as other options, Red Carpet can accommodate all of your needs for daylife, nightlife, and Las Vegas entertainment. A wide range of options is available from daybeds, cabanas, and private suits complete with private showers and bathrooms.
