Whether you’re looking to relax or to rage, the Strip’s best pools and dayclubs are top spots to enjoy summer in Las Vegas.

1 - 8 Dayclubs You Don't Want to Miss This SummerThey tried to make us go to Rehab at Hard Rock and we said, “Yes, yes, yes.”

Drai’s Beach Club
Weekends see the Strip’s only rooftop pool club—complete with private cabanas, bungalows, and an astounding seven DJ booths—host headliners like the funk duo Chromeo and Canadian EDM superstars Adventure Club. Can’t wait until Friday? Stop by on Tuesday nights for Yacht Club, an after-hours party that invites guests to don their best bikinis, polo shirts, and captain’s hats. The Cromwell, 702-777-3800

Encore Beach Club
One glance at Encore’s three-tiered pools, towering palm trees, and red-and-white umbrellas should help you understand why it’s widely considered the Strip’s most impressive outdoor club experience. Heavy-hitters like David Guetta, Kaskade, Avicii, and Diplo keep the party going all weekend. Encore, 702-770-7300

Foxtail Pool Club
The glossy sheen on Vegas’s newest dayclub extends to its central bar, VIP cabanas, and 20 daybeds, all designed to channel the retro glamour of midcentury South Beach. Foxtail is smaller than most of its down-Strip competitors, but it’s the club’s attention to detail—vintage rattan furnishings, floating lily pads, gourmet bites from chef Luke Forzano—that makes it worth a visit. SLS Las Vegas, 702-761-7619

Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis
Those in search of calmer waters should consider Caesars Palace’s seven-pool playground, featuring Mediterranean-style landscaping and other emblems of ancient Rome. While there’s no club scene, the private cabanas, daybeds, swim-up blackjack tables at the Fortuna Pool, and adults-only Venus Pool should be enough to convince you to stick around. Caesars Palace, 702-731-7280

Mandalay Bay Beach
Your best bet for sheer variety, Mandalay Bay Beach is an outdoor paradise with one jaw-dropping centerpiece: a working wave pool surrounded by 2,700 tons of sand. Rounding out the spread are a lazy river; 100-plus cabanas, bungalows, and villas; a beachfront casino; the European-style Moorea Beach Club; and Delano Las Vegas’s brandnew pool lounge. On select Friday and Saturday nights, the beach hosts concerts by rock and reggae acts like 311 and Ziggy Marley. Mandalay Bay, 702-632-7777

Marquee Dayclub
Marquee may not be the new kid on the block, but it’s still one of Vegas’s most heavily trafficked hot spots, with a multilevel pool terrace that attracts an impossibly young crowd. Weekdays are for relaxation, while on Fridays it turns into a party mecca presided over by top DJs. Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, 702-333-9000

Rehab
The weekend extravaganza responsible for the proliferation of Vegas’s dayclub scene, Rehab has returned for another season, turning three acres of tropical landscaping into a platform for a throbbing mass fueled by mixed drinks and a nonstop EDM soundtrack. For a respite, the property’s less populated Nirvana and Breathe pools offer the same atmosphere with fewer distractions. Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, 702-693-5555

Wet Republic
Two saltwater pools, a 2,500-square-foot outdoor lounge, and VIP bungalows outfitted with private Jacuzzis and kitchens set the scene at MGM Grand’s ultrapool Wet Republic. The space’s LED-lit DJ booth is still one of the Strip’s most coveted stages, stacking its weekend roster with performances by Steve Aoki, Calvin Harris, and Tiësto. MGM Grand, 702-891-3715
