Two pool parties from Hakkasan Group convert into extensions of the pool complexes for those over age 21. Wet Republic Ultra Pool at the MGM Grand and Liquid Pool Lounge at Aria plan to reopen on Thursday, July 2.
Wet Republic, the 54,000-square-foot pool complex, just went through a renovation unveiled in March that included two new plunge pools, a redesigned and expanded artist performance area, furniture upgrades, and state-of-the-art immersive technology.
The venue upgraded 10 cabanas and modernized 12 bungalows each with additional seating and a giant flat screen TV.
Wet Republic Ultra Pool plans to be open Thursdays through Sundays from 11 a.m. to close. Reservations are required online or by calling 702-891-3563.
Liquid Pool Lounge’s reopening comes a day after Aria relaunches. The venue features eight cabanas as well as daybeds that line the main pool.
Liquid Pool Lounge will be open Thursdays through Sundays from 11 a.m. to close. Reservations are required online or calling 702-590-9979.
Both pools feature QR codes for menus to be viewed on cell phones; daybeds and lounge furniture separated for physical distancing; and a rigorous cleaning plan implemented.
Some pool parties have reopened as tamer versions without the big-name deejays at Encore Beach Club, Marquee Dayclub at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, and on July 2, Daylight Beach Club at Mandalay Bay.
Gov. Steve Sisolak closed casinos on March 17 to curb the spread of COVID-19. The Nevada Gaming Control Board issued guidelines to resorts to reopen that include maintaining 50 percent capacity, masks on staff, cleaning protocols, and social distancing throughout the casino. Casinos were permitted to reopen across the state on June 4.
