The Scene at Marquee Dayclub

Of course you can take the heat, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this list of weekend pool parties.


Up at Drai’s Beachclub on top of The Cromwell, 4B and Henry Fong are joining forces in a tag-team DJ set that might just blow your bathing suit off your body. Cover yourself or hide behind a couch or something. 11 a.m., $20–$30, draisbeachclub.com

Local DJ Lisa Pittman gets the call at Liquid Pool Lounge at Aria Resort & Casino. Find some room in the pool and enjoy. 11 a.m., $10–$20, liquidpoollv.com

And Marshmello is back at Encore Beach Club. He’s pulling double duty after a gig Thursday night at Intrigue, so bring him some coffee. 11 a.m., $20–$30, at Encore at Wynn Las Vegas, encorebeachclub.com

Some people don’t like being judged. Some people do. Those in the latter column will be lining up for the SPYONvegas Hot 100 bikini battle at MGM Grand’s Wet Republic. 11 a.m., $20–$30, wetrepublic.com


Empire actor/rapper Bryshere Y Gray, a.k.a. Yazz the Greatest, is hosting Day Beats at the GO Pool. Get up close to the stage and hear some of your favorite tracks from the show. 9 a.m., $15, at Flamingo Las Vegas, gopoolvegas.com

Welcome to the first weekend of August in Las Vegas. Things are never going to be hotter than you in that bathing suit, right?

So if you’re up for a day in the sun instead of a day in the office, hit the Ditch Fridays party at Palms Casino Resort and enjoy the poolside cocktails you’ve been dreaming about all week. 9 a.m., $15–$25, palms.com

And DJ duo Slander stars at Encore Beach Club. 11 a.m., $20–$30, at Encore at Wynn Las Vegas, encorebeachclub.com

If you can’t get enough of that throwback feeling, head out to Rehab Beach Club and see Ginuwine. You and your friends can argue in the car about which is a better track: “Pony” or “Differences.” But when the show starts, they’re both equally magnificent. 11 a.m., $20–$40, at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, rehablv.com

By the way, when “Pony” was a hit back in ’96, Wet Republic headliner Zedd was just seven years old. Let that sink in. 11 a.m., $20–$30, wetrepublic.com

And English DJ Sigala—he was three when “Pony” dropped. But he doesn’t care how far you go back as long as you’re in the crowd for his Marquee Dayclub gig. 11 a.m., $23–$33, at The Cosmopolitan, marqueelasvegas.com
