You know summertime in Las Vegas is looming ahead when you step outside and instantly feel like your skin is melting off. It’s not a pleasant feeling, but it’s one that can easily be escaped. There are establishments all along the Las Vegas Strip that offer air conditioned refuge from the brutal sun, but that would mean missing out on your very vital tanning time. So, where can you go where you will be able to cool off while still enjoying the reenergizing nature of the desert sun? Up and down Las Vegas Blvd, you’re likely to find a slew of establishments that cater to your kind known locally as dayclubs.
The term may not be familiar to you, but you can guess what a dayclub is. Essentially, it’s a nightclub atmosphere set outside during the day, and being Las Vegas, you can be that there are several of these locations at your disposal. Below, you will find some of the best that are well worth your time and money.
Acting as an extension of the Cosmopolitan’s Marquee nightclub, this dayclub offers top of the line entertainment in an elegant space that welcomes all. The party space is lined with numerous daybeds, all of which providing an ideal location under the sun for those looking to get a little tan. Grab a drink at the attached bar and lounge poolside as the day’s entertainment, usually in the form of resident DJ Kaskade, fuels the party.
Even more inviting than the daybeds are the available cabanas which, for a price, give you your own private getaway. Outfitted with comfortable seating, LCD television, and refrigerator stocked with non-alcoholic beverages, these cabanas are ideal for private parties and those looking for a little solidarity.
Marquee dayclub carries over the Cosmopolitan’s sense of style, class, and elegance in an unrivaled outdoor party.
Sapphire Pool and Dayclub
The name “Sapphire” is widely known in the Las Vegas area as being one of the most prolific strip clubs in town.In continuation of its unrivaled and unbeatable atmosphere, Sapphire has extended its services to the daylife, providing an escape for those that want to see what the much-talked-about establishment has to offer but can’t quite get involved in Vegas’ nightlife.
The Sapphire Pool and Dayclub is an extravagant space that matches everything the famed strip club has to offer. A slew of daybeds line an inviting pool where the bulk of the party takes place. Fueling this daytime bash is Sapphire’s resident DJ, Truelove, who knows just what notes to hit to keep the excitement high.
While most dayclubs only offer up a bar with a selection of premium beverages, Sapphire dayclub goes the extra mile courtesy of celebrity chef, Kerry Simon. A fresh menu of salads, mouthwatering fruits, cheeseburgers, and other must-try dishes help to energize all party-goers when the constant partying wears them down.
Of course, being an attachment to Sapphire, you should expect to see entertainment in the form of beautiful Go-Go dancers, all eager to please and working to catch your eye.
TAO Beach Club
TAO nightclub is what can be considered a legacy establishment on the Strip. Standing as the oldest nightclub on the Strip, TAO’s high octane atmosphere and frequent celebrity appearances have kept it thriving during both the hard times and the good. It should come as no surprise then that TAO’s attached beach club would offer the same level of entertainment in a lush tropical setting.
Surrounding rows of daybeds is a selection of exotic plant life that help to separate TAO Beach Club from the rest of the world, guaranteeing that it always feels like a private party.

Included in the on-site cabanas are LCD televisions equipped with gaming consoles, air conditioning, and your own private mini-bar. Cabanas can be a little costly, but for what you get, they are well worth the money. When the sun (or the party) gets to be too much for you, you’ll be happy to know that you have a place to escape back to.
As a little gift for the men, every Monday through Thursday, TAO Beach Club turns into a European style (or topless) pool.
