Summer is nearly over, but that doesn’t mean the excitement of Vegas is ready to slow down. Every year, more than 300,000 people head to Vegas for the famous Labor Day Weekend parties. Labor Day marks some of the most anticipated events along the strip, including legendary pool parties and nightclubs in full swing. Here are some of the best ways to enjoy those last rays of summer.
Foxtail Poolside Cookout @ SLS Las Vegas
It’s just not Labor Day without a cookout. All Labor Day Weekend, you can eat your fill of barbeque chicken, baby back ribs, and more for just $15. The Foxtail Pool Poolside Cookout at SLS Las Vegas runs from 11 am to 4 pm on Friday, September 1 through Monday, September 4.
Omnia Nightclub @ Caesars Palace
Omnia Nightclub is one of the hottest scenes in Vegas and this year’s Labor Day event will feature some of the top DJs in the industry all weekend long. From Friday, September 1 through Sunday, September 3, Omnia will host Martin Garrix with Justin Mylo, Armin Van Buuren, and Steve Aoki. Party the night away in this massive 75,000-square-foot venue that includes an outdoor terrace with sweeping views of the strip. Don’t forget to look up and admire the high-tech chandelier suspended over the club. When you need a bit of fresh air, the terrace also boasts the perfect mid-level view of the strip.
Wet Republic @ MGM Grand
Wet Republic holds the distinction as one of the hottest Labor Day events in Vegas with A-list celebrities and thousands of other guests flocking for an unforgettable day club and nightlife experience. Wet Republic offers plenty of different experiences to fit your tastes, whether you want to relax with a cocktail at the poolside lounge, enjoy the party scene on the main deck, or dance the night away as world-class DJs hit the stage. This year, the 4-day lineup at Wet Republic includes Tiesto, Martin Garrix, Kaskade, and Steve Aoki.
Tao Beachclub @ Venetian
Tao Beach sits atop the multi-story “Asian City” in the Venetian, which also houses a lounge, nightclub, and restaurant. This 60,000 square foot Balinese beach is open all pool season for an unforgettable daytime event. Labor Day Weekend marks the biggest bash of the year with performances by DJ Five, Kevin Hart, and DJ Mustard.
Beer Park @ Las Vegas
The new Beer Park at Paris Las Vegas is the first rooftop bar and grill in Vegas with excellent views of the strip, great food, and more than 100 eclectic cocktails and beers to sample. If you’re looking for a more laid-back setting on Labor Day Weekend, stop in during the day for ribs and gourmet burgers, but stick around for the house party once the sun sets.
Drai’s Nightclub @ The Cromwell
The Cromwell is the latest boutique hotel on the strip and just across from Bally’s. Drai’s Beachclub and Nightclub has quickly become a popular party spot with a packed lineup for Labor Day Weekend. From Friday, September 1 to Sunday, September 3, Drai’s will host Rae Sremmurd, Wiz Khalifa, and Lil Wayne by night. By day, Drai’s features a hip rooftop pool party atop the Cromwell with day beds, full-service bars, and seven sun-soaked pools.
Elation Pool @ Stratosphere
The Stratosphere is one of the few places to catch drink specials during the Labor Day Weekend in Vegas. Enjoy $8 Fire Apples, $20 domestic beer buckets, and 2-for-1 specials on Sauza Strawberry Fizz, Cruzan Coconut Breeze, and Singapore Slings from Friday through Monday while relaxing at the newly remodeled Elation Pool. The Stratosphere pool is a great destination if you’re looking for a more casual hangout on Labor Day, but you can head up to the 107 Sky Lounge for panoramic views and live DJs when you’re ready for more action.
Daylight Beach Club @ Mandalay Bay
Daylight Beach Club boasts a massive 4,400-square-foot pool with bungalows, daybeds, cabanas, and giant LED screens across a 1,500-square-foot stage with capacity for 5,000 guests. What better way to celebrate the end of summer than with this year’s list of talent that includes DJ Neva, DJ Stevie J, Duke Damont, and Rick Ross?
Go Pool Party @ Flamingo
The Go Pool Party at the Flamingo is the ideal place to soak up the last rays of the summer sun in style. Doors open on the weekend at 9 am with performances by DJ Eric Forbes from noon through 5 pm. Grab a day bed by the water and enjoy the drink service in style.
Garden of the Gods @ Caesars Palace
When you need to reset in luxury after a long weekend of partying, there’s no place better than the Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis atop Caesars Palace. Take a break from the excitement at the end of pool season in one of six pools like the Apollo Pool with maximum sun or the Neptune Pool, which is the social hub of the oasis. From Friday through Sunday on Labor Day Weekend, the Garden of the Gods also transforms into one of the hottest pool parties in Vegas with live DJs and go-go dancers.
While you enjoy the final blowout before the 2017 Las Vegas pool season comes to an end, make sure you take care of yourself by staying hydrated and wearing sunscreen. Be prepared to party with only the bare essentials, such as your ID and debit card, because no one enjoys looking for a place to stash their valuables before hitting the pool. Don’t forget to stay safe and plan your Las Vegas transportation ahead of time. Enjoy unlimited rides on the Monorail with a two- or three-day pass to skip the hassle of traffic and event parking this Labor Day Weekend.
