Ditch Fridays Returns

Ditch Fridays Returns

You've never needed an excuse for an early weekend start. But just in case, the Palms' midday blowout pool party is returning, rooftop cabanas and all. If you go there today, you might make it in time to catch Sean Paul. Which might mean it's time to invest in a soundproof cabana.

Fridays starting today, noon-6pm, $30, The Palms, 4321 W Flamingo Rd, 702-938-9999

After-Hours Partying on the Strip

After-Hours Partying on the Strip

The already-legendary Gold Lounge was created to pay tribute to the King, but things closed down at a very un-Elvis-like—not to mention a very un-you-like—2am. Here to correct that grave error: Rise, a new after-hours party with clubbier music and a crowd of well-heeled scene-makers. And there's nary an Elvis impersonator in sight. For now.

Fri-Sat nights, 2-6am, Gold Lounge at Aria, 3730 Las Vegas Blvd, 702-590-7777

The Octavius Villas at Caesars Palace

The Octavius Villas at Caesars Palace

Caesars' new Octavius Tower is finally reaching the late-Rome levels of debauchery you've been hoping for. The second-floor suites will run you 40 grand a night, but in return you'll get a marble-pillared palace stocked with a patio overlooking the pool, grand piano, personal butler and leather-bound library. Because, really, you came here to catch up on your reading.

Octavius Tower, starting at $40,000 per night, Caesars Palace, 3570 Las Vegas Blvd S, 702-731-7110

Artisan Hotel Pool Parties

Artisan Hotel Pool Parties

It's a rule as old as Vegas itself: you can never have too many pool parties. Consider this your more intimate and refined option, where you'll go for cognac-and-champagne cocktails at the bar—and the pulsing house music will be the soothing, contemplative kind.

Sundays, 3-10pm, Artisan Hotel, 1501 W Sahara Ave, 800-554-4092
