One of the Better Vegas Topless Party Pools If It Remains Topless

For years, Mirage has promoted this pool with an emphasis on topless. Numerous big posters around the casino, and even on local highway billboards, showed a topless babe from the back, with the slogan: “Bare:  Lose the Tan Line.”

Then suddenly, in spring 2019, the pool began requiring tops.  But after a deluge of complaints, as of May 30, 2019, Bare is top-optional again, though women must don tops to go to the ladies’ room.

In the past, the pool has best lived up to the promise of those topless billboards on Mondays, as this has been their locals-free day, when locals took advantage and flocked in. This year, ladies are free on both Mondays and Thursdays, so I expect those to be the best days, though the new policy of charging men $20 on those days may kill the fun.  Note that even on locals-free days of the past, only a few female guests actually took their tops off.

In the past it’s been hard to find a place to sit down and the only shade—unless you rent a cabana—is in the bar area. I’m basing the ANEI on a typical Monday of the past, when the crowd was in deep party mode.  The other days of the week I’ve been there have tended to be pretty dead.

MiragePool1The pool itself is small and rectangular, about 40 by 15 feet. There’s a full bar.  In the past, food and drink prices have been a bit steep, with burgers and sandwiches mostly $20.

Bare Pool at its best is primarily a hook-up scene for young people with hot bods. Assuming the pool remains topless, you’ll likely 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.  If you don’t mind the fees for men, it’s worth a look.

    Anyone hear if the Bare pool is going to open this year? Website hasn’t been updated and it doesn’t look like they’ve done any social media marketing.

    • Bill

      Nate, also no longer toptional, so just a really small adults only pool for hotel guests.

  2. Bill

    Just read that bare is no longer toptional per nbc 3 News story. Another one bites the dust

    • Scott

      Bare was pretty spare is what I’ve heard.

      Thanks for the heads up Bill! Pool season is weeks away in Las Vegas

      • Bill

        From the sounds of it it is now only reservations for hotel guests. So it is probably gonna die a pretty quick death, but figured readers may want a heads up

        Bare has been pretty spare since the pandemic, before that it was awesome on Monday’s for some reason. I remember on year there was a group of 4 college age or so girls, with 3 of them dancing at the edge of the pool admitting they were putting on a show, have had other good times there, but that on sticks out

      • Scott

        Per press reports and our friend Bill D Las Vegas Bare will not be open to non-hotel guests.

        The Mirage Hotel and Casino’s Main Pool and the Private Oasis Pool will open on March 2 for guests with reservations. The Bare Pool lounge will open to guests over 21 years old who have reservations on March 16. The Paradise Cafe and poolside bar will open on March 10.

    Not back to the glory days of this place yet, but this year was a few good steps in the right direction, people seemed at least aware it was toptional and both days had a number of women take off their tops. Only 1 or 2 looked like they could be Vegas dancers a few more looked like they could find a job at a Pennsylvania gentlemens club still had a good time though.

    With the word mirage is sold and hard rock will git the place, odds are in the next few years the death of yet another, of the dwindling number of, dead topless pool on the way is my guess. That is not good news to me. Sad days ahead,

  5. Erik

    Thanks I am going to sapphire the 19th, so anyway you would say radius over the artisan pool?

  6. erik

    sad note and of note for part of the time im in town this year, neither bare nor moorea will allow topless sunbathing 7/14-7/19 as per their facebook pages. Leaves limited options those days.

    • Arnold Snyder

      Thanks for the heads up, Erik. Stratosphere’s Radius Pool is an excellent back-up. Sapphire’s topless pool is open on Sunday the 14th.

  7. Arnold Snyder

    Thanks, NM. Sometimes the pools open with more generous terms when the weather’s not so hot and the crowds aren’t there yet.

    I’ll fix the review to show the standard terms now that summer’s here.

  8. NM

    Bare is only free for locals on Monday. Told the guy I heard it was free for everybody and he said nope.

    No way I’m going to pay $30 to maybe see some boobs.

  9. TJ

    Quick question: I’ve been looking around online, seems like some pools you have to pay for a chair – is this correct? I’m not talking about cabanas or daybeds, but literally just a chair. Is this correct? I know to go early if you want to get one, but if they’re $300 per chair and you don’t get one, you just, what? Stand around awkwardly in the pool?

    • Arnold Snyder

      TJ, right. At clubs where you have to pay for a chair, you either sit at the bar or stand in the pool or sit on the edge of the pool, or find someone who rented a cabana to party with.

      That’s at most of the party pools.
