Drai’s Beach brings the party back to the Las Vegas Strip

The rooftop pool club at the Cromwell Drai’s Beach will finally be back in action this weekend.

The Drai’s Group announced today it will reopen rooftop pool club Drai’s Beach on April 2 at the Cromwell on the Las Vegas Strip. Drai’s Beach and Drai’s Beach at Night will both relaunch this Friday in adherence with state restrictions, joining Drai’s Lounge operations inside Drai’s After Hours in the Cromwell’s basement, which reopened in October.

“We took the longest pause in our nearly 25-year history in Las Vegas, so it feels really good to ease back into what we do best,” said Dustin Drai, vice president of entertainment. “We’re coming back with one the strongest and most enthusiastic teams and look forward to resuming full operation in the near future.”

The 65,000-square-foot rooftop club space is one of the biggest outdoor dayclub or nightclub venues in Las Vegas, including two levels with multiple pools, palm trees, cabanas and bungalows, multiple bars and a full kitchen. Drai’s Beach will operate Friday through Sunday from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. and at night Friday and Saturday from 10 p.m. until 3 a.m. General admission is currently not permitted under statewide restrictions and reservations are recommended.

Drai’s Beach becomes the latest nightclub or dayclub to reopen as a lounge-style venue this spring, following recent reopenings of major venues like Omnia, Hakkasan, Wet Republic, Encore Beach Club, XS and others. Drai’s Lounge inside Drai’s After Hours is open from 10 p.m. until early morning Thursday through Sunday and reservations are required.

The Cromwell was the last major resort on Las Vegas Boulevard to reopen in 2020 after casinos were shut down in March, returning on October 29 as the only Strip property shifting to an adults-only model. All guests staying at or entering the Cromwell must be 21 years or older, except when dining at the Giada restaurant.
