Pool-party season: back. And with it, your sacred duty to turn cabana into a verb, do some extreme daybed
sunning and synchronized swim-drink. Below, the five best bodies of water for doing just that. Clothing will
be kept to a minimum.
Palms Pool & Bungalows, Palms
You’re in for: 80 different beers served poolside and a Hellogoodbye performance...
followed by four more performances. Presumably, you can also get the beers at that bar behind the waterfall.
Yeah, there’s a bar behind the waterfall. Keywords: microbrews, pop music, soaking wet bars
Wet Republic, MGM Grand
You’re in for: The progressive-house stylings of Tommy Trash. Which you’ll experience
from a bungalow that sports its own jacuzzi/flat-screen/misting system/bodyguard. Or, you know, the deep
end. Keywords: daybeds, doggy paddling, sunbathing showgirls
Encore Beach Club, Wynn
You’re in for: A palm-lined paradise of massive circular beds, red-micro-bikinied
waitresses and poolside blackjack where David Guetta will be spinning for the day. Keywords: spray tans, splitting 10s and Frenchified mashups
Marquee Dayclub, The Cosmopolitan
You’re in for: An entire summer with house luminary Kaskade, who’s doing a residency
here this season. Oh, and he’ll be doing it while you’re in your trilevel bungalow complete with living
quarters and... its own pool. Keywords: excessive bass, breathing space, aquatic raving
Tao Beach, The Venetian
You’re in for: Logging some serious time in an Asian jungle of video-game-equipped cabana
real estate where cherry blossoms, a spa and fortune-cookie-waffle brunches happen. Keywords: Xbox, shiatsu, reclining Buddhas
