Everybody’s Free To Play by the Pool

Marquee Day Club

Ladies and gentleman of the Las Vegas pool scene, in the words of the great Baz Luhrmann, “wear sunscreen.”


If Flosstradamus could offer only one tip for the future from the stage at Encore Beach Club, sunscreen would be it. 11 a.m., $20–$30, at Encore at Wynn Las Vegas, encorebeachclub.com

The long-term benefits of sunscreen have been proven by DJ D-Miles, who would want you to protect your skin if you’re going topless at Bare Pool Lounge. 11 a.m., $10–$20, at The Mirage, barepoollv.com

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth while dancing to Jerzy at Mandalay Bay’s Daylight Beach Club. 11 a.m., $20–$30, daylightvegas.com

Oh, never mind, you will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they’ve faded.

But trust me, in 20 years, you will look back at photos of yourself in the crowd for Sak Noel at Drai’s Beach Club and recall, in a way you can’t grasp now, how much possibility lay before you, and how fabulous you really looked. 11 a.m., $20–$30, at The Cromwell, draisbeachclub.com


Don’t worry about the future. Or worry. But either way, see Borgore perform at the Hard Rock’s Rehab Beach Club. 11 a.m., $20–$40, rehablv.com

Maybe you’ll marry, maybe you won’t. Maybe you’ll have children, maybe you won’t. Maybe you’ll divorce at 40. Maybe you’ll dance the funky chicken at the DJs from Mars concert at the GO Pool. 9 a.m., $15, at Flamingo Las Vegas, gopoolvegas.com

Enjoy your body. Use it every way you can. Don’t be afraid of it, or of what other people think of it while you’re waving to Scott Disick at Aria Resort & Casino’s Liquid Pool Lounge. 11 a.m., $10–$20, liquidpoollv.com

Dance. Even if you have nowhere to do it but in front of the DJ booth while Kaskade plays MGM Grand’s Wet Republic. 11 a.m., $20–$30, wetrepublic.com


Catch French electronic DJ/producer Watermät at The Cosmopolitan’s Marquee Dayclub. 11 a.m., $23–$33, marqueelasvegas.com

Or see Machine Gun Kelly, maybe best known for his “Bad Things” collab track with Camila Cabello, at Rehab Beach Club. 11 a.m., $20–$40, rehablv.com

Accept certain inalienable truths. Prices will rise. Politicians will philander. And Dillon Francis will delight at Encore Beach Club. 11 a.m., $20–$30, encorebeachclub.com

Don’t mess too much with your hair, or by the time you’re 40, it will look 85, and that’s not the look you want if you’re going to the Sundazed Pool Party at The Artisan Boutique Hotel. Noon, artisanhotel.com

Be careful whose advice you buy. Be patient with those who supply it. But trust me on the sunscreen.
