The Vegas summer vibes aren’t going away anytime soon, but when Labor Day lands on the Strip, it’s the beginning of the end for dayclubbing and all the pregame and post-show activities that come along with it. If the next few days mark your last big splash-bash of the season, organize accordingly and go all out. Here are a trio of pool party-focused itineraries to consider:
GIADA -> DRAI’S -> IN-N-OUT
Only at the Cromwell can you combo Food Network star Giada De Laurentiis and Jersey Shore star DJ Pauly D. Hit the cozy Giada for Sunday brunch and endless mimosas before sliding up to the roof to catch Pauly spinning at Drai’s Beachclub. No need to scream “The cabs are here!” when you’re all partied out; stumble north on the Strip to acquire the magical healing properties of the iconic Double-Double at the Linq Promenade’s In-N-Out burger.
BORDER GRILL -> DAYLIGHT -> MINUS 5
Long one of the Strip’s best and most creative brunch options, Border Grill at Mandalay Bay is serving up south-of-the-border small plates starting at 10 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. It’s a short stroll to Daylight Beach Club, where the weekend stars are Duke Dumont and Rick Ross. And when you’re ready to cool off, head back inside and get literally chilled at the Minus 5 Ice Experience.
EBC -> ANDREA’S -> EBC
Look, you’re here to party. If you’re not ready to take advantage of the unbelievable day-to-Nightswim turnaround that happens every weekend at Encore Beach Club, your Vegas is in question, and LDW means three never-ending poolside sessions featuring DJ Snake, Galantis, the Chainsmokers and more dance music stars. Refuel between sun-drenched sets on hamachi sashimi, adobo crab fried rice and Impossible Burger kimchi sliders at the adjacent, always relaxing Andrea’s. –Brock Radke
