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.
The 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.
