"Pool season." It's a short little phrase that thrills, isn't it? Often used to describe the time of year when casino-resort pools in Las Vegas open for a warm-weather season of booze- and luxury-filled parties, Sin City is far from the only destination in the world offering hot summer fun poolside. Here are some of the best in the world to see and be seen. You'll definitely need to bring your swimsuit game.
1. Marquee Dayclub — Las Vegas
Marquee Dayclub puts a climate-controlled dome over the pool area in fall and winter so the parties never have to stop — but the dome has gone into hibernation and traded places with sun beds and open air for this spring and summer season. Upcoming well-known guest DJs on the calendar include LA's DJ Mustard and DJ Vice and Australian DJ/producer Thomas Jack. You can even snag your own cabana with an individual infinity pool to have your own private party within the party. Baller.
2. Hyde Beach — Miami
Ah, Hyde Lounge, the famous Hollywood nightclub that Tara Reid couldn't get into while Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian strolled right in past her to the delight of TMZ cameras. Well, Hyde Beach is the outdoor sister club in Miami that pumps out a packed calendar of beats by poolside DJs and eats by star chef Jose Andrès. The hashtag to beat here is #SaveWaterSprayChampagne.
3. Ocean Beach — Ibiza
Ocean Beach in Ibiza, which soft opens for the season on April 28 on Spain's notorious party island, is where you want to go when you want to do more than just prettily dip your toes in the water. If you want to rage in a bed on a pool, head here for some VIP action before you entertain the foam parties elsewhere.
4. Ushuaïa — Ibiza
If you're looking for an even bigger Ibiza blowout, Ushuaïa goes off day and night. The calendar includes live performances as well as DJ sets. And the venue will soon welcome British dance act Groove Armada, Dutch DJ Martin Garrix, and French festival headliner David Guetta.
5. Ace Hotel & Swim Club — Palm Springs
If you're headed to Coachella or the annual festival has you daydreaming about a Southern California desert getaway, don't miss the Ace Hotel & Swim Club for DJ-powered pool parties all spring long.
6. Phoenix Hotel — San Francisco
San Francisco doesn't get its warmest weather until the fall — and even then, it's no Vegas — but the cute mini pool scene at Phoenix Hotel has already gotten into swing for spring with the return of recurring parties called Summertime Radness, which will soon welcome guest DJs like chillwave legend Toro Y Moi and Belgian house DJ The Magician. The calendar for the season will fill with more one-off, DJ-fueled parties that will be hot even when it's honestly kinda chilly outside.
