It’s funny that some use this term (European-style), since only in specific areas of Southern Europe is where you can find a larger-than usual topless population on the beach 🙂 Anyway, if you want to access one of the best top less pools in Las Vegas, this list is for you.
The good news about these pools is that you usually don’t have to be a guest at the resort to access their top less pool (this is the case for most Vegas resorts but not all); this because there is an entrance fee of anything between 10 to 40 dollars per person, depending on whether you are a woman or a man and whether it’s a weekday or a weekend. Women pay less and, in some top less pools, they go free. A tip for guys: always check if it’s worth your while paying for a daybed (this way most places will comp you the entry fee).
Paying for a cabana all day long may be best if you are a group, but if you plan to eat and drink significantly, always check with the individual pool for prices because the cabana may be ‘comped’ (offered free of charge) altogether in this case.
So, always do your math before you book your day at the pool. One final tip: always read the fine print about service charges (some of them are compulsory) and other charges added on top, otherwise you may end up with an unpleasant surprise at the end. Tipping other staff members (security staff, for example those who try to prevent sneaky snapshots of unsuspecting top less girls by some less-than-classy guest)
Some top less pools will not be open all year round, following the same opening seasons as their general pools. For this information go to all-year-round-Vegas-pools.
Among the best top less pools in Vegas are:
Sunset Pool at Wynn Las Vegas
This is a great place and ideal for adult guests staying at the Wynn or Encore (everyone must be at least 21 years or age to be allowed here), since they will enjoy this private, upscale pool area all by themselves (it is not open to non-guests). There is of course no entrance fee for these privileged guests but, if you want to lounge around in style and comfort, you will have to pay handsomely for their feature ‘Lilypad’ round loungers (from about 300 dollars). No noisy crowds or irritating music here, just a tough of class all around. This top less pool is open from 8am to 7pm but, during the cold winter months, it operates with a more limited schedule.
Celebrity Top less Pools in Vegas: Tao Beach at Venetia
Here you can find the occasional celebrities, and it’s a place popular amongst nightclub-lovers, especially because it becomes an extension of Tao nightclub in the evening (Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights), when no swimming is allowed (at night). You can read more on the unique features of Tao Vegas on the page titled Best Vegas Nightclubs.
Tao Beach at Venetian is a top less pool Monday through Thursday, with full swimming in the day (10am to 6pm); it is however closed in winter, but open during any other season. The entrance fee is $20 on Saturday and Sunday for men who are not Vegas residents.
In the day you will enjoy members of staff ‘misting’ guests with cool water, which can be a really welcoming feature on those super hot summer months!
Among other features of this top less Vegas pool are the fact that you can order food directly from Tao Kitchen (not the cheapest, of course), that you can have your own personal massage with sun-soothing ingredients and, as in the case of several Las Vegas pools, you can even organize your own wedding here!
Bare Pool Lounge at Mirage
Their clientele is people from their mid twenties to their mid thirties, watchers and socialisers alike. Its key features are the VIP Plunge pool, the fact that it offers free chaises Mondays through Thursdays and the elevated cabana area from which you can sip your drink of choice and feast your eyes with all the action. It’s open daily from 11am to 7pm (during winter times it will likely operate with a more limited schedule, depending on the weather).
Venus at Caesars Palace
I write about this top less Vegas pool because Caesars Palace is well known and many will wonder about their pool areas. Well, the jury is out on this one. Some love it, others hate it. Perhaps one could say it tries to be ‘middle of the road’ in so many ways (appealing to a wider range of clientele); thus, if you are not a hard-partier twenty-something looking for alcohol and a crazy atmosphere this pool is not for you; it tries to be classy without being over the top, it aims to appeal to a more discerning clientele without trying to be St Tropez, it’s a mid-range small sized pool, hidden away (and hard to find!) from the main pool areas.
If you want to pamper yourself a bit more, the Garden of the Gods nearby pool area, just revamped, may just do the trick. This pool is open from 10am to 6pm (11am to 6pm on weekends) but will follow the seasonal closure period of the main pool area (closed during the coldest winter months).
Best Budget Top less Pool in Vegas:
Let’s face it: not everybody wants to spend hundreds of dollars for one day of top less fun. So, for those who want to have a good time but save some cash, the Beach Club 25 at Stratosphere Las Vegas has an answer. The best features of this pool is that it’s all the way up on the 25 floor, a head-spinning characteristic that, if you are into top less pools, you may just have to make sure you don’t miss this one! It’s open daily from 10am to 6pm, women enter free and men only pay 10 dollars.
