If you’ve ever dreamt of being a part of a seemingly endless pool party that’s filled with the hottest EDM, champagne showers and a sea of party-goers that stretches out over 6 salt-water pools, you should get yourself a ticket for Wet Republic. This luxury day club can be found at the MGM Grand, but you can hear the pulsing sounds from resident DJs Steve Aoki, Calvin Harris and Armin Van Buuren all the way from Las Vegas Blvd. With a jam-packed events calendar, including Spy On Vegas’ summer-long competition for the ‘hottest pool partier’, you can expect hordes of beautiful people no matter what day you choose to party.

Rehab Beach Club is the infamous oasis that sets the standard for the debaucherous party-scene that is now expected from Vegas day clubs. Donned as the ‘original Vegas pool party’, Rehab still remains a crowd favourite after all of these years. Twenty-somethings dance underneath grottos and drink beneath the graceful palm trees as performers such as Usher, Borgore and Wale keep the pools hyped to full-throttle. At Rehab you truly never know what you’re going to see, which might be why its legacy continues to live on.
3. TAO BEACH AT THE VENETIAN

Fusing together aspects of Tao’s lounge, restaurant and nightclub features, Tao Beach is the perfect synthesis of party and elegance. If you’re used to ordering a chicken finger and fry basket at the pool, Tao Beach’s eclectic menu of chicken katsu club sandwiches, chili lime shrimp and spicy tuna tartare will blow you away. This Asian-inspired day club matches beautiful design with incredible music, ranging from hip-hop, top 40 and EDM. Set amidst the beaming towers of the Venetian, Tao Beach offers an ambiance that even the most lack-luster partier could admire.
4. DRAI’S BEACH CLUB AT THE CROMWELL
With over 70,000 square ft. of expansive party space, 8 pools and a list of resident performers that could easily headline their own music festivals, Drai’s has quickly become a namesake on the Vegas Strip. Sitting on the roof of The Cromwell, Drai’s offers panoramic strip views matched with a festive party-crowd. A lively affair at Drai’s doesn’t have to end at sunset; keep the drinks pouring by booking a table at Drai’s Nightclub or Drai’s Afterhours.
5. MARQUEE DAYCLUB AT THE COSMOPOLITAN

Marquee Dayclub made waves on the Strip ever since the Cosmopolitan opened and created a new kind of scene for the younger crowds. Gaming areas, pools, go-go dancers and bars span this multi-level club. Marquee Dayclub’s central location on the second floor of the Cosmopolitan also offers unmatched views of CityCenter. An added bonus of partying at Marquee is that you don’t have to travel very far to reach an abundance of delicious food that will aid your alcohol consumption.
6. ENCORE BEACH CLUB AT ENCORE

The scarlet and white accents of Encore Beach Club can be gawked at from Las Vegas Blvd. But inside the club, partygoers can truly feel the touch of luxury that was cultivated with every single detail within the property. Like everything else that falls under the Steve Wynn name, opulence is simply a requirement. Two floors of extravagant cabanas are packed with tourists and locals who can’t get enough from some of the world’s top DJs. If the Vegas sun has already taken a toll on you, strap yourself in for one of Encore Beach Club’s night swims. Staged under the dazzling lights of the Strip, this party rages on with cooler temperatures but equally crazy vibes.
7. BARE AT MIRAGE HOTEL & CASINO
If you’re on the hunt for a more intimate rendezvous, Bare serves as an urban escape inside the lush landscapes of the Mirage Hotel & Casino. Apart from having a boutique-feel compared to the ultra-clubs on the Strip, Bare also offers guests European-style sunbathing. This ‘toptional’ setting is certainly a rare commodity in Las Vegas, making it a hotspot for bold clubbers who are willing to ‘bare’ all.
Tag us in your Vegas day club pictures on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter and we’ll repost our favourites. Although it’s probably best to keep the craziest ones (and the Bare ones) for your eyes only though!
