EV­ERY DAY IS #TBT AT PALAZZO’S SPLASHY, NOS­TAL­GIC

Vegas Magazine - - Contents -

Las Ve­gas home dé­cor, ho­tels, and real es­tate.

AQUATIC CLUB.

So your style is a bit more Slim Aarons circa 1960 than bach­e­lorette-party sex­pot circa 2017? Fi­nally, there’s a pool party just for you. Palazzo’s re­for­mat­ted for­mer Azure pool goes for splash over trash with so­phis­ti­cated ca­bana art in­spired by mid­cen­tury color field paint­ings and sporty Tory Burch-clad servers bear­ing retro cock­tails like the Bees Knees and French 75. But the fun new pool party that harkens back to clas­sic Amer­i­can pool, lawn, and rac­quet clubs isn’t short on sass: Play boozy float­ing ta­ble ten­nis on Fri­days; take in per­for­mances by the city’s adorable syn­chro­nized swim­mers, the Aqualil­lies, on Satur­days; and drink frosé (or bloody Marys and green snap­pers) all day on Sun­days. And where you might not get hosed down by sexy fire­fight­ers or shoot your friends with Cham­pagne spray guns, as at some venues, no one ever turned down a visit by the Good Hu­mor man—or in this case, the “Pro­hi­bi­tion Treat Trike,” de­liv­er­ing spiked ice cream bars to good lit­tle boys and girls. Open Fri­day through Sun­day, 11 AM– 6 PM; 866-8342319; palazzo.com

The Fo­rum Shops at Cae­sars, 702693-6877; bac­carat.com

IN­SIDER TIP: Un­be­knownst to many, the cen­ter is open year-round to the pub­lic—not just to the trade—with show­rooms such as Nouri­son, Safavieh, and Four Hands more than happy to sell to con­sumers. 495 S.
