Spring has arrived in Vegas which means the pools and beach clubs are opening. This is a quick primer on what the beach clubs are and how to get access to them–and even get a free drink or two!
What is a Las Vegas Beach Club?
The beach club scene is new-ish in Vegas, but is great for a fun time. It’s sort of what it sounds like, but not exactly. It isn’t a beach–it’s a pool. But it most definitely is a club. It’s a Las Vegas pool party!
Think about all the good things about a club–energy, dancing, great DJs, and people having fund–and mash it together with a pool party.
That’s a Beach Club. Beach Club Las Vegas style!
Beach Clubs are different from the adult pools in Vegas.
An adult pool is more like this:
Whereas a Beach Club is more like this:
An adult pool is where you pay a little extra for some quiet so you can relax. At a Beach Club, you are paying for the exact opposite. You are there to have a fun time. Think MTV Spring Break if you are old enough to have seen that!
There’s a DJ–and sometimes the big name DJs who come into a club will do an encore show at the casino’s Beach Club the next day.
The Las Vegas Beach Clubs
Not every casino has a Beach Club, though more and more have been building them. As I said, it is a newer scene.
Here are some Beach Clubs you can party at. This list is not exhaustive, though other Beach Clubs may be more event-based or lower key.

Who to Connect to for Las Vegas Beach Clubs
Here’s who you need to get connected to in order to get into the Beach Clubs.
Some things they could potentially offer are:
- Skipping the line / reservations
- Free entry (usually with a 1:1 girl to guy ratio. If there are more girls than guys, that’s fine)
- Free drinks (usually women only)
Here are the usual stipulations:
- Arrive at the time they tell you to. You are usually getting your benefits in exchange for pre-filling the club so it never looks empty when the other customers arrive.
- Tell them if you can’t come–otherwise, they’ll be waiting to escort you to the front of the line (and will miss out on other business).
- If you are a woman and get a free open bar wristband, do not share your drinks with a male member of your group. They will notice and you will get thrown out.
Luckily, some of my favorite promoters represent beach clubs.

Tips for Going to Beach Clubs and Surviving Las Vegas Pool Parties
Consider renting a cabana, especially on weekdays and with a larger group.
Many Beach Clubs (Marquee included) will consider the rental fee as a credit towards drinks and food. Sometimes a cabana is only a few hundred dollars. When split among multiple people, that isn’t too bad to have a home base and cocktail service. And it may not cost you more (or much more) than what you were planning on spending already.
Do not party too hard, especially if you have plans during the evening
Daytime used to be recovery time in Vegas. You might go to the spa (though I do not recommend getting a massage after a night of heavy drinking!) or relax by the pool.
While Beach Clubs are technically “going to the pool,” some people party as hard as they would at a club.
Remember, you have the rest of the day ahead of you! I know people who have missed very expensive events they had tickets for, thanks to overdrinking at a pool club. Have fun, but don’t go too crazy. Especially with the hot sun bearing down on you. You’ll get dehydrated faster than at a club. Your post-beach club nap may leave you waking up after all the evening fun is over.
Don’t bring too much stuff with you
There are some rules over what you can bring in and on the size of your bag. The first time I went, we didn’t know these rules and found out that a locker costs a lot of money. We somehow managed to fit all of our bags into the one bag that met the regulation size. So find out the rules ahead of time so you bring the right things with you!
That’s it for now. If you have any other questions, feel free to leave them in the comments.
