When the first US Covid-19 case was discovered last year, we all felt our world turn upside down. From what we’ve had to endure, saying that it’s been challenging would be a drastic understatement.
For some, it’s been mentally exhausting. All the hand washing, disinfecting, and worrying can get to a person. And for those of us who’ve contracted the virus or had loved ones affected, well, it’s been scary. Through it all, though, many have found a silver lining, gaining greater strength and appreciation for what matters most.
Our great city is doing everything possible to make its return. Thanks to the hotels and Control Board, many steps are being taken to prevent the virus’s spread.
For example, temperature checks, sanitization, mask requirements, air filtration systems, capacity restrictions, and social distancing practices help guests stay as safe as possible.
When Will The Clubs Open?
There have been some new developments this week! The state will no longer mandate social distancing measures starting May 1st. This means that any requirements will now be up to the counties and the Gaming Control Board.
Even better, the goal is to have the entire state reopened to 100 percent capacity no later than June 1st!
As far as the masks go, though, Governor Sisolak is maintaining control of that. And he’s stated that he doesn’t know when he’ll be able to remove the requirement.
So, as of right now, the nightclubs and pool parties are still closed until further notice. However, many venues are operating as socially distant pools and lounges.
Let’s hope we’re well on our way to a full opening soon! We’ll be sure to update this closure list as we receive more information.

*Revised Format: Socially Distant Pool & Lounge Experiences
Although the clubs aren’t back yet, there’s still a bright spot. For instance, some clubs have temporarily transformed into socially distant pools and lounges.
With this revised format, you’ll get to attend a top venue, enjoy bottle service, listen to your favorite songs, and socialize with your group.
Still an excellent time, but there are significant differences between the new structure and the clubs you know and love.
- There isn’t any general admission or a guest list, so the only people allowed in the venue are those purchasing a table. Or those that are buying a seating ticket (if available).
- Social distancing measures and capacity restrictions are in place.
- Because seating is limited, reservations are required.
- The number of guests at each table is strictly enforced.
- You’ll often find reduced table prices (as compared to previous club rates).
- Depending on the venue, there may or may not be a DJ.
- Masks are typically required when walking around and while at your table. Face coverings are not needed if you’re eating or drinking.
- There’s no dance floor.
- It’s not a club.
What Remains The Same
- You’ll get to enjoy a pool or lounge experience at some of the best venues in the city. (As you may notice, most have modified their names, so guests will know that it’s no longer a club environment.)
- A range of table options and prices are available.
- Hours are similar to their club versions. For instance, pools are open from 11 am until sunset. And nighttime lounges are open from around 10 pm until late.
- Table prices are quoted as a minimum spend requirement. Items on the food and bottle menus will count towards your spending minimum.
- Like the clubs, the venues charge approximately 35-37% on top of the required spend amount. This percentage is for the venue fee, sales tax, and gratuity.
- You’ll kick back, relax, and listen to your favorite songs, all while socializing with your group.
Pool season has begun! Choose from socially distant pool experiences at the following venues.
- Daylight Beach
- The Pool Marquee
- EBC Pool
- Wet Republic
- Drai’s Beach
The pools are currently open Friday through Sunday. Wet Republic and Encore Beach Club are open an additional day, though, on Thursdays. Daylight is also open on select weekdays. So, if you’re looking for a venue during the week, these are great spots to go.
Depending on the venue, bottle service reservations are currently required or highly recommended due to limited seating.
Table reservations have been selling out fast, though. So, if you want to attend, it’s best to book as soon as possible.
And if you like seafood, The Pool Marquee has some incredible seafood towers. A DJ is playing on the weekends there too.
There’s also Circa Resort’s Stadium Swim on Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas. The venue offers a 143-foot viewing screen too. It’s a great choice if you have a large party and you need higher capacity table options.
If you’re interested in a nighttime venue, the Wynn has opened XS as a lounge. Bottle service is available in a socially distant setting. The hours are 10:30 pm until close on Friday and Saturday evenings. XS will also host it’s Sunday night Night Swim event starting Sunday, April 25th.
One thing that’s cool about XS is that they’re offering general admission seating tickets, so you don’t have to spend a lot for a table. The tickets are currently $75 per person (plus applicable fees).
Additionally, the TAO Group offers a nighttime escape inside Marquee’s Main Room. There are outside seating options as well. Marquee Lounge features an EDM/open format. If you’d like to eat, there’s a limited food menu.
Recently announced, Marquee will also be hosting a nighttime pool party on Sundays. “Drenched After Dark” begins Sunday, April 18th. You’ll score excellent pricing on bottle service here. Some table options even have reduced rates as compared to the daytime pool pricing.
TAO Nightclub has also transformed into TAO Lounge. You’ll enjoy bottle service while listening to the sounds of a resident DJ. TAO Lounge is currently open Thursday through Saturday. Table service reservations are required.
Additionally, Drai’s After Hours has now re-opened as Drai’s Lounge. Like the other venues, it’s currently available for bottle service reservations only.
And just last month, Omnia Nightclub opened its rooftop. This outdoor patio is a fantastic spot to take in some excellent views of Las Vegas Blvd.
Hakkasan Nightclub is also open as a lounge. You’ll find table service reservations available for up to six guests.
Lastly, if you’re looking for a more casual nighttime experience, check out Drai’s Beach at Night (aka Swim Night) on Friday and Saturday evenings.
Once again, these venues aren’t clubs, but they’re the closest thing we’re going to get to them for a while.
Other Evening Lounges
If a swanky parlor with live music is more your vibe, you may want to check out The Barbershop Cuts And Cocktails at the Cosmopolitan. This prohibition-style venue has live music Thursday through Sunday, starting at 10 pm.

Fun Things You Can Do Now In Vegas
Besides making a pool or lounge reservation, there are some fantastic things you can do now in Vegas. Here are a few of our favorites that are currently open.
- Top Golf
- Red Rock Canyon
- Grand Canyon
- High Roller
- Exotics Racing
- Zion National Park
- ATV Tours
You can also score excellent rates on hotel rooms. For instance, with hotels starting around $40 per night on weekdays, they’re some of the lowest ever. You’ll enjoy dining, table games, free drinks on the casino floors, socially distant slot machines, and reduced capacity.
We look forward to seeing you in the clubs once they’re open again.
