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?
They’re open now! Currently, dayclubs and nightclubs are operating with fewer restrictions. Capacity limits are still in place, although the occupancy percentage has increased to 80%.
Social distancing measures are lower now, too. Instead of six feet, guests must maintain three feet of space.
Even better, we’re only days away from the return of the dance floor on June 1st!
And DJ lineups at the venues have been announced. Yes, that means you can now see The Chainsmokers, Diplo, Dillon Francis, Deorro, Steve Aoki, and more.
There aren’t any guest list reservations at this time, though. But you can get a table or purchase a general admission ticket.
Resorts World (the newest hotel to hit The Strip) has opened reservations for Ayu Dayclub beginning July 1st. Tiesto and Zedd have signed on for residencies.
Additionally, the hotels have removed the mask requirement for vaccinated guests. Unvaccinated guests are still encouraged to wear one.

*Socially Distant Club Experiences
There are temporary safety measures right now. But you can still attend a top venue, get bottle service, hear your favorite songs, and socialize with your group.
An excellent time, for sure, but there are some significant differences between the revised structure and the clubs you know and love.
- There aren’t any guest list reservations, so the only people allowed in the venue are those purchasing a table. Or those that are buying a general admission ticket.
- Social distancing measures and capacity restrictions are in place.
- Because seating is limited, reservations are recommended or required.
- The number of guests at each table is strictly enforced.
What Remains The Same
- You’ll get to enjoy a pool or nightlife experience at some of the best venues in the city.
- A range of table options and prices are available.
- The venues’ operating hours are the same as before. For instance, pools are open from 11 am until sunset. And nightclubs are open from around 10:00 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.
- 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
- Marquee Dayclub
- 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. 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!
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.
Choose from nightclub experiences at the following venues.
- Drai’s After Hours
If you’re interested in a nighttime pool party, XS has launched its Sunday night Night Swim event.
EBC Night Swim is also now open. You can catch all the action here on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday evenings.
Additionally, Marquee hosts a nighttime pool party on Sundays called “Drenched After Dark.” You’ll score excellent pricing on bottle service here. Some table options even have reduced rates as compared to the daytime pool pricing.
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 party or nightclub 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
For shows, we highly recommend Absinthe! It’s now open, and it’s arguably the best show in Vegas.
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.
