1. Liquid Pool Lounge Draped in tall palms that provide some tropical-flavored seclusion, Aria’s dayclub Liquid has really stepped its game up this season, including a solid roster of musical guests. Aria, 702-693-8300.

2. Sunday Nightswim at XS Everyone’s familiar with the wild summer days (and nights) at Encore Beach Club, but XS’ amped-up, bikini-clad weekend-ender is a whole different vibe. This Sunday, Audien takes the decks. Encore, 702-770-0097.

3. SKAM Saturdays at Tao Beach The intimate rooftop pool club really rollicks when favorite SKAM DJs like Eric DLux, DJ Five and Turbulence are in control. Venetian, 702-388-8588.

4. Beach Paradise at Drai’s Beachclub Speaking of rooftop pools, they don’t get any better than Drai’s, where Tuesdays offer a locals- and industry-oriented shindig anchored by downtempo DJ Fernando Alva. This is as relaxing as dayclubs get. Cromwell, 702-777-3800.

5. Playtime Thursdays at Daylight Don’t wait until the weekend to do the dayclub thing. DJ Neva anchors this inviting industry party every Thursday. Mandalay Bay, 702-632-4700.
