Las Vegas is known as the gambling, food, and pool party destination of the world. The Las Vegas pool party is showing no sign of peaking even after it’s 11th season. The daytime pool party craze created by the Hard Rock Hotel aired on MTV in 2004, titled, “Rehab.” Sky high ratings brought sky high heels adorning skimpy bikini clad women and crazed men to Sin City to frolic at Las Vegas’ new cash cow, The day and nighttime pool party venue. Young people save all year to come for a few days of hard core top of the line, no expense spared partying with the hopes of meeting “Mr. and Ms. Right Now.” Every hotel has a daytime pool party as part of it’s entertainment offering all offering unique set-ups and trying to spot the next trend. Whether it be the new nighttime venue or the concert poolside. They are all competing for this young upwardly mobile slice of disposable income.
World famous DJs
Hosted by world renowned DJs that command fees as high as $250,000 for a single afternoon, These parties are now a cash revenue machine for the Las Vegas hotels. Admission at times costing $100, bottle service costing hundreds of dollars and cabana rental running into the thousands, Las Vegas has again found a niche market and is milking the 20-something’s for every dollar they have tucked away in their trust funds. Designer swimsuits by Tori Praver, Designer sunglasses by Bulgari, and Manolo Blahnik high heels are all required fashion accessories for the hip female pool partyer. Men are equally conscience of pool fashion as evidenced by the overwhelming amount of men sporting the James Bond/Daniel Craig, La Perla “Grigioperla” blue swimming trunks made famous in the movie Casino Royale and their “Bono” inspired Emporio Armani designer shades.

Tao’s amazing food choices such as the chicken and beef satay, the lobster and shrimp rolls and the Udon noodle salad are sure to please the discerning palate. Be sure to try the Kobe beef hotdog. Seriously the best hotdog I have ever had with all the trimmings expected. I’d refrain from ordering the sushi, Las Vegas heat and raw fish can be a disaster. Tao is a young, hip crowd of beautiful people with hot bodies and a great place to people watch. A great place to see famous celebrities such as International pop music sensation Rita Ora, Sum 41 rocker Deryck Whibley, Host of “EXTRA,” Mario Lopez, Spider-man stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, and 2011 Sports Illustrated swimsuit covergirl, Irina Shayk. The Tao only hosts world renowned DJs so expect an amazing time, but do use plenty of sunscreen, the Las Vegas sun is cruel. After the pool party breaks up, head to your room, grab a nap and then head over to Tao Nightclub and continue partying.
