BANNED – What You Can Not Do at a Vegas Pool Party
Large bodies of water, pumpin’ music, alcohol and hundreds of half-naked party people, what could go wrong? The powers that be controlling the pool party scene hope nothing, which is why they have some pretty strict policies on what is cool- sunglasses and sun block – and what’s not…
We’ve covered this before, but it is worth mentioning again, you must show up to a pool party dressed. Strip down to your suit inside, but make sure it is a bit more than some pasties in all the right places. Yes these are wild and raucous pool parties, but the hotels still want to maintain some level of dignity.
And while we are on the subject of nudity – one of our favorites – make sure that no matter how high the spirits have gotten you, you are able to refrain from a skinny dip. That will get you walked to the door in shame faster than you can pull your suit back on.
Consider carefully what you are bringing inside with you. There is a very strict no drug rule at the pool parties. This means if it looks, smells or tastes like a drug, it’s not getting in. Having a prescription won’t help you with this either. If you can’t make it the few hours you will be at the pool party without your anti-anxiety meds, you’re better off staying in the hotel room.
On that same note, anything typically used to administer said drugs, legal or not, will also not make it past security. There is no good reason to bring a bong anywhere unless you have the goods to go up in smoke, so if you show up with one, the worst will be assumed. The same is true for needles, straws, spoons, and ridiculously small mirrors with traces of white covering the surface.
Pool parties are not BYOB events, so don’t think you can save some dough by bringing your own bottle of Jack with you. The club isn’t about to accept just your cover charge for the use of their pools and DJs, they bank on you buying their booze. Besides, then you get the added pleasure of a babe bringing you your drinks.
Now nobody is saying that the typical pool party in Vegas is full of thugs looking for a fight, but to keep it that way there is also a universal anti-weapon policy. This is as simple as if it can draw blood, it’s not getting inside. Sorry boy scout, that means your Swiss army knife needs to stay in your hotel. It should also go without saying that guns will not be tolerated, but considering the varying gun laws around the states and the world, it may need to be clarified. A Vegas pool party is not a Texas honky-tonk, so leave the Smith & Wesson at home.
Make no mistake, a Vegas pool party is unrestrained shenanigans from one end to another, but with a touch of class. Respect the rules, and you are going to have a club experience like none other on the planet.
