July used to be the month Las Vegans would hide away from the sun’s brutal heat. But with “daylife” —the hotelcasinos’ term for bringing the nightclub out-of-doors—going strong and starting earlier each year, they’re partying with the rest of you under sunny skies. These hotspots are the perfect way to check out a pool environment that’s not at your hotel. Hang out with the hotties at Sapphire Day Club, outside the gentlemen's club of the same name. Lay back on a daybed and sip an exotic drink at Mandalay Bay’s Moorea. Or, revel in the multi-level paradise that is the Encore Beach Club. Don your best swimwear and follow us to indulgence! Need a little help deciding what to wear and how to look you're best in the summer sun? We’ve got that covered as well. Be sure to stay hydrated and drink plenty of water!

Ditch Fridays. Just as the title implies, be naughty and skip out on work, a meeting or your errands at the Palms Pool. You won't want to skip out on your friends though— the more the merrier! TAO Beach. Keep the party going until the sun goes down inside the picturesque and relaxing environs inside this Balinese-inspired retreat at The Venetian. Pictured above.
Liquid. This poolside experience at Aria is about as opulent as they come. Hang back in a cabana with all the latest technology, or party hearty in the summer sun, above. Marquee Dayclub. A little drinking, a little gambling, a little dancing—you can do these all here, on a perfectly manicured pool deck. For those who want to stay the night, quarters are available. Cosmopolitan.
Rehab. A Vegas pool-party institution, this experience seen above is the rowdiest in town, and offers the most celebrity sightings (and performances). Hard Rock Hotel. Night Swim. Visit XS at Encore's decadent pool for a party where dressing to impress is a given. Eclipse. This party at Mandalay Bay's Daylight features a top-notch stage with the hottest DJs and special effects.
