IN A NUTSHELL: The hottest daytime topless pool party in town. Note: Pasties used to be required at this pool but aren't anymore. *Reopens Friday, April 19, 2019*
ANEI: 9.99 (best in Vegas)
EXCERPT: If what you’re looking for is more in the line of a strip club in the sunshine, there’s only one venue in town that will fill the bill: the Sapphire Pool & Day Club. At this pool you are guaranteed to see topless girls and some of the hottest bods in Vegas, because this is the pool where the Sapphire dancers work on their tans. Gentlemen, need I say more?
IN A NUTSHELL: A luxurious 5-acre lifestyle resort and nudist retreat just minutes from the Vegas strip.
EXCERPT: This is not a topless pool, but a nudist/lifestyle resort with numerous sparkling pools, spas, and play areas that may be of interest to couples who enjoy topless pools in Las Vegas.
IN A NUTSHELL: There are usually topless women here, and many of them are cute, but it's not Sapphire. It's more of a place where normal women get topless and party, which can be fun.
EXCERPT: I went on a Sunday afternoon and found about 40 guests at the pool, 20 of them female. Of the 20, 11 were topless. Of the 11, 10 figured into the SGNC, so this pool may be small, but the scenery is not bad at all. The DJ keeps the house music loud enough to encourage dancing on the deck once the drinks start to kick in. And there are lots of drink specials.
IN A NUTSHELL: Cove Pool, formerly Venus Pool, the original topless pool in Vegas, is tops-required as of May 30, 2019 (a terrible loss). It's still a beautiful pool, but instead of one of the best of the laid-back European-style topless pools, it's now just another loud Vegas party pool.
EXCERPT: Caesars, which pioneered the whole topless pool trend in Las Vegas when the Venus Pool Club opened about 15 years ago, has gone and blown it. Venus Pool is now Cove Beach, another loud tops-required Vegas party pool run by a Dubai company that apparently doesn't appreciate bare titties. A tragic loss.
IN A NUTSHELL: No longer topless.
IN A NUTSHELL: Quiet and elegant but no longer topless.
EXCERPT: Encore Beach Club no longer allows topless sunbathing.
IN A NUTSHELL: Only an out-of-the-way sunning area was ever topless, but now a top is required everywhere. Still worth going to for the slide and the sharks.
EXCERPT: If you’re not too disappointed in the dearth of nipples here, and you can put up with all the ankle biters, this has got to be one of the coolest pools in Vegas. It’s big and has two waterfalls, plus a giant saltwater fish tank right in the middle of it, so you can swim beside the sharks. In addition, a great waterslide starts up on the third deck and becomes a clear tube on the way down that goes right through the fish tank.
IN A NUTSHELL: No longer topless, but nobody ever went topless here anyway.
EXCERPT: It was late afternoon when I got there and the party was raging. The pool was filled with guests slamming beach balls around and enjoying the sunshine. There were lots of young people, lots of girls in bikinis, and the music was pounding. But there wasn't a single pair of pasties in sight. I walked the length of the pool and back to the bar, looking more carefully. Nope.
IN A NUTSHELL: A good topless scene, but overpriced for men. Check out Sapphire. This is usually the first topless pool to get going every spring, at least unofficially. I've seen people at the pool in parkas in March.
EXCERPT: The disadvantages of this pool for a strip-club aficionado are: 1) You can get a better show elsewhere, especially considering that 2) the admission price is so high. While I have definitely seen cute topless girls here, as well as quite a few more babes in bikinis, I think the $50 admission fee for men is too steep. And they really ought to get some beach balls into that pool!
IN A NUTSHELL: Management has gone back and forth in 2019 on whether Bare will remain topless or not. After requiring tops earlier this spring, as of May 30, 2019 it is top-optional again.
ANEI: 5.0 (on Mondays)
EXCERPT: Bare Pool at its best is primarily a hook-up scene for young people with hot bods. You’ll see a couple cute girls with their tops off, but if you’re not a member of the tattooed and pierced generation and you’re not there to party, you’ll probably feel like an outsider. Still, the scenery can be pleasant.
IN A NUTSHELL: SLS has converted its Grand Pool into a "european sunbathing" pool. That means top-optional. Review and details coming soon.
IN A NUTSHELL: Cool rooftop pool with a great panoramic view (25th floor), but no topless girls to be seen on my hot July visit... Readers report nipple sightings since then, however.
EXCERPT: There was a good crowd in the 102º heat, an even mix of males and females. The DJ was pumping house and hip hop beats and the beach balls were flying. But the most important thing for readers of this website: There was nary a nipple to be seen.
IN A NUTSHELL: 2019 update: *Topless once again!* Will be updating our review soon.
EXCERPT: On a recent weekday afternoon, the male/female ratio was almost 2-to-1 male. I’d never seen that here before. I was also disconcerted to see that the crowd did not look like the normal young hip party-pool crowd I’d seen on prior visits. This was an older crowd—not a lot of women you’d go out of your way to see topless.
IN A NUTSHELL: All those beautiful wet titties and no beach ball.
EXCERPT: I’ve checked this pool numerous times on weekdays and weekends. There were always topless women here and almost every one I saw was young and good-looking—definitely stripper grade. But alas, the pool’s a snooze.
