The year just started, and already it’s time to start thinking about pool season, which in Las Vegas begins in March and lasts through October.

ARIA’s Liquid Pool Lounge is scheduled to open for the Las Vegas 2021 pool season on March 12. Since Hakkasan Group owns Liquid, it will follow the same guidelines as Wet Republic Ultra Pool, with socially distanced seating, touchless menus, and required reservations.

For the 2021 pool season, The Pool Marquee at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas will offer a new socially distanced daylife format. Opening on March 5, expect to see expanded seating areas, including five new bungalow cabanas and a new section by the DJ booth. You can also reserve a grand cabana complete with a private pool. There’s everything from sushi to pizza on the food menu, in addition to specialty items like crispy chicken katsu skewers, mini seafood tacos, and an Imperial Wagyu beef burger. At The Pool Marquee, sip on specialty cocktails or go the bottle service route with premium liquors or champagne packages. The Pool Marquee will be open every Friday through Sunday, beginning at 11 a.m. Reservations are required.
Daylight Beach, a fabulous beach oasis at Mandalay Bay, offers one of the most electric settings in Las Vegas. The tropical island-style complex, which opens for the Las Vegas 2021 pool season on March 5, features a main pool with two other private pools for cabana guests, daybeds, u-shaped banquettes, and two private ultra-VIP bungalows that have their restrooms, servers, and pools.

Encore Beach Club, which now goes by EBC Pool, will open for the Las Vegas 2021 pool season on March 5. Reservations are recommended to gain access to this award-winning pool at Encore Las Vegas. Several seating options are available depending on your group size. For groups of four, a daybed, lily pad, beach couch, or water couch are your best bet.
