Sapphire Pool – Where the Sapphire Dancers Come to Party

SapphirePool D

If you’re looking for a topless pool, you’ve got about ten to choose from in this town where you can splash around in the water and lay in the sunshine and hopefully see some cute girls getting sun on their titties. Read my reviews and take your pick.

But 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 (pool website). At this pool you are guaranteed to see topless girls (even though they’re wearing pasties) and some of the hottest bods in Vegas, because this is the pool where the Sapphire dancers come to party, flirt, and work on their tans.

Gentlemen, need I say more?

Okay, I will.

The dancers are friendly and don’t seem to have any boyfriends or husbands hanging around.  (There’s a good ratio of men to women at the pool—roughly one to one.)  If you’re alone at the bar they’ll often introduce themselves to you and you can buy them drinks and chit chat.

If you’re used to seeing strippers only in strip clubs, wait’ll you see them in the sunshine in their teeny little bikinis.  In the darkness of the strip club, where we always see dancers, we sometimes wonder if it’s all done with smoke and mirrors. We can’t help but conjecture that perhaps the dancers only look as good as they do because it’s so dark.

Then you see them in the light of the hot Vegas sun and they look twice as good as they did in the dark.

Gentlemen, need I say more? This is the topless pool from heaven, the topless pool we’ve been longing for since Caesars Palace introduced the first topless pool in this town some 15 years ago.

Plus, if you’re looking for just a great Vegas pool party, with celebrity DJs and Hollywood types in the crowd, specials on shots and private cabanas and lots of laughs and drinks and great mingling, the Sapphire Pool and Day Dlub is all of that too.

Sapphire provides free limo transport to their pool party every day that it’s open, which is every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from noon to 6 pm from April 21, 2017 into October.  To reserve the club limo, call 1.702.869.0003.

Sapphire also has great package deals, including a $70 package that gets you free limo transport from your hotel, free admission, a reserved lounge chair for the day, and a $50 food/beverage credit. See that and other package deals on the Sapphire Pool website here.

The Sapphire Pool and Day Club Sunday Check-Out Special

You check out of your hotel room on a Sunday morning but your flight home isn’t until that night. Rather than waste your last day in Vegas, why not spend the day at the Sapphire pool party before your flight or ride out of town?

Sapphire will not only pick you up in their limo, but also store your luggage for the day and drive you to the airport when it’s time for you to leave.  It’s a great way to stretch your Vegas vacation spring through fall. Call 1.702.869.0003 to reserve your ride, or book at the Sapphire pool website.

Sapphire Pool and Day Club Las Vegas

Another Reason the Sapphire Pool Is at the Top of My List—VIP Dances

Although the Sapphire Gentlemen’s Club is located adjacent to the Sapphire pool and has no cover charge in the afternoon, customers of the pool cannot go back and forth from pool to club. But the Sapphire dancers at the pool will let you know (if you ask) that there is a VIP area of the club where pool customers can go with dancers from the pool area.

SapphirePool C

How it works:  Just past the pool food concession seating area there’s a backdoor entrance to the Sapphire club where you and the dancer of your choice will be escorted by a pool host. This backdoor entrance leads directly to Sapphire’s VIP room. Since you can’t go into the main area of the club, you cannot just get a $20 lap dance from a dancer you meet at the pool. The VIP room has a minimum price of $100 for three songs, $200/30 minutes, etc., plus a minimum $40 bar tab—the standard Sapphire VIP room prices.

But the pool area is not a hustle scene. You will not be accosted by dancers and you may sit around for hours without a dancer ever approaching you. If you want to meet a dancer, hang out in the pool or by the bar or food concession and don’t be shy about introducing yourself to any really hot babes who just seem to be hanging out there.  Say, “Hi, are you a dancer here?”

Pro tip: If you see a hot girl at the pool who’s wearing a pink wristband (and you’ll see a lot of them), that means she’s a Sapphire dancer and you can buy her a drink, invite her to share your cabana, or ask her for a private dance in Sapphire’s VIP room (there’s a secret back entrance to the club she can lead you to).

That Weird Las Vegas Pasties Regulation

Technically, the Sapphire Pool isn’t a topless pool; it’s a “pasties pool.” Because of local regulations, topless sunbathing is legal at public pools only if the pools are not used for parties.

SapphirePool BThis, of course, is another one of those weird Las Vegas laws that make you wonder about the intelligence of our legislators. The logic goes like this:  If it’s a party, the topless women might dance. And if they dance, their titties might jiggle. And if there are jiggling titties in the vicinity of a swimming pool, it’s pretty much a given that someone’s going to drown.

So, the cops enforce this law with an iron fist. In most big cities, cops look for killers, thieves and rapists. In Vegas, Metro has a battalion on 24-hour nipple patrol. And it’s working. This town hasn’t seen a drowning at a topless pool yet.

Some of the pasties are pretty creative and there is often a body painter working for tips who will paint “pasties” onto a girl’s tits if she prefers to avoid adhesive on her nipples.

Regardless, Sapphire still has the best topless pool in town, even though it’s “topless lite.” If you’re looking for a pool where you can lay back with a cold beverage and enjoy the view, by far Sapphire’s got the best scenery. And if you’re looking for a pool where you can adjourn to a more private area along with some of that scenery, it’s the only place in town and probably in any town, and there even the pasties come off.

More Sapphire Pool Details

SapphirePoolHandstandThe Sapphire pool tends to get good crowds, partly due to Sapphire’s wise decision to allow locals in most days for free. That makes for one of the best daytime parties on the planet. The DJs are top-notch. The music never stops. People are dancing in the water and on the decks. The pool is divided by a volley ball net and the beach balls never stop flying.

You don’t have to be there to meet dancers—lots of couples are coming. There are girls doing hula hoops on the deck. There’s a beer pong table and complimentary squirt guns available at the cashier’s booth just in case a squirt gun fight breaks out, which happens with some regularity. The go-go dancers are so sexy I’ve been thinking of applying for a job as a towel boy just so I can go to work there every day and watch them.

I’m not posting a SGNC (stripper grade nipple count) or ANEI (adjusted nipple entertainment index), because technically there are no female nipples on display. But the place is bursting at the seams with exposed female flesh. It’s a great afternoon show.

Sapphire’s on-duty pool staff includes many female servers and go-go dancers, some of whom wear pasties and some of whom wear bikini tops. Pasties are also available for guests of the pool, and quite a few female guests wear the pasties. I’d never seen pasties out in the sunshine before. Another Vegas first. In addition to complimentary pasties, there are the aforementioned complimentary squirt guns and also free sunglasses available for guests.

For now, I’m listing the cover charge at this pool as usually free, or $20 if you arrive by cab. Depending on the DJ or host, you may see a cover charge ranging from zero to $50. I’ve also seen a two-drink minimum at the pool at $12 per drink.  I’ll update this section when I get over there this year.

The Sapphire pool web site will list special events at the pool, celebrity dj’s and hosts, special cover charges, and excellent drink/limo/lounge chair packages (recommended).


The pool itself is medium-sized and rectangular—it looks a lot like Mirage’s Bare Pool, though there’s a waterfall fountain at one end that bathers can stand under and get drenched—a great spot for girl-watching. There’s also a wading pool with transparent sides (about waist deep) at the other end of the pool, near two raised go-go platforms where the dancers perform in 20-minute shifts (another great spot for girl-watching). There are also dozens of beach balls for titty-ball aficionados.

If you’re not renting a lounge or cabana, the only convenient shade you’ll find is at the bar, which is close to the fountain shower. You can order food from the gourmet Mexican restaurant at Sapphire, as well as bar food like wings, burgers, sandwiches, salads, pizza and desserts mostly priced in the $10-$12 range.

SapphirePool AWith guest DJs, you’re liable to hear everything from classic rock to cutting-edge hip-hop, rap, techno/house/EDM. You might hear “Fly Like an Eagle” and “Fly Like a G-6” back-to-back, but the emphasis is definitely on the more modern beats.

How does the Sapphire Pool compare to the other topless and party pools in Vegas? This is a great pool, and may be the best in Vegas, for watching girls. There are dozens of Sapphire girls running around the decks in those skimpy little string bikinis and pasties and the female guests who show up are all in bikinis too, with many opting for the pasties. Many get in the water. Some play titty-ball and a few get under the shower. The go-go dancers doing 20-minute high-energy sets out in that hot Vegas sun are obviously chosen for their athletic bodies and stamina.

The Sapphire Pool & Day Club is a great way to while away a summer afternoon in Vegas.

    Visiting Vegas in mid November with the gang from Chicago South Side. What are the chances this highly touted, potentially amazing, exotic destination has the perfected pastie show running at full throttle so that we, whom are slightly aged in body, increasingly gifted in mental fortitude, and completely decadent in virtue, may indulge in the flowing of lascivious libations, trembling of tantalizing ta tas, and bouncing bubblicious booties?

  2. Arnold Snyder

    I regret to inform you and your cohorts that the Sapphire Pool is closed and will not resume operation until mid-May. All the tantalizing ta tas and bubblicious booties have moved indoors. It doesn’t snow much in Vegas, but believe me, you don’t want to be outdoors in a swimsuit in mid-November.

  3. Joe Schmoe

    Nice review. Thanks for putting it together. Some friends of mine and I are putting together a Vegas trip some time in June and will be enjoying much of the Vegas scenery you have described on your site.

    I do have a question though and that is what is the policy at this pool (and other pools as well) when it comes to bringing a camera and taking pictures. Is there a particular etiquette to follow, or is it same kind of rules that apply when you go to the beach?

    • Arnold Snyder

      Joe, a lot of people bring their cell phones to the Sapphire pool and take selfies that they post on social media.

      Sapphire encourages this. Every Saturday last year they gave free shots to people who did this.

      As for taking photos of other guests (such as dancers), the etiquette is to be courteous and ask if it’s okay before you shoot photos of people you don’t know.

    Have you heard of these types of pools, Saphires and other “adult” pools in Vegas, “frowning” on people over 50 years of age attending in order to maintain a youthful vibe, or is my money just as welcome?

    • Arnold Snyder

      For older guys, Sapphire is the best topless pool because it’s essentially an extension of the strip club. Not all of the women are Sapphire dancers, but there are always many that are.

      Older guys are generally the guys in strip clubs who have and spend the most money, so they tend to be treated well by dancers, staff and everyone else. It’s the same at the Sapphire pool.

      I’m 67 and I’ve always felt welcome there. And I’ve always seen other older guys there.

      At many of the other “adult” pools in Vegas, I felt more out of place. The staff and other guests will still be polite to you, but you won’t see anyone else there your age. The other pools are more pick-up scenes.

      Still, even at the pick-up pools, your money will definitely be welcome, and if there’s a dork detector at the door placed there to keep out the uncool, he’ll probably be so befuddled to see you that he’ll just let you in right away.

      There won’t be anyone screening for the uncool at the Sapphire pool, but it stays cool anyway because of all the gorgeous dancers there.

  5. Jimmy

    Definitely us “older” guys (I’m 49) are treated great at the clubs. Especially the nude clubs like LD’s. 18-21 guys can only get into the nude/no booze clubs so obviously they have to frequent those clubs and they aren’t going to have the cash to spend that some of us have. My girlfriend and I both tip every dancer and the waitresses and not always just with singles if the dancer and dance are hot enough. We haven’t been to the Sapphire pool yet but may stop in next weekend.

  6. Jimmy

    Just to add a bit more, the pool parties like Ditch at the Palms definitely are geared toward the younger crowd, we don’t go to those. Yeah there are some hot chicks but they are all “princesses” and those pool parties get so packed you can’t even move. No thanks. If you want a nice “adult” pool that isn’t filled with posers you can go to Wynn. Topless and a nice place.

  7. Sven

    Hey Arnold,
    very nice review!! And if its ok…I have a question
    2 guys of us come over to Vegas from Germany.
    We want to spend 1 day at Sapphire Dayclub and take a cabana or bungalow package.

    Is the higher price of the bungalow worth the money?
    What are the advantages?

    If I look at some pictures around the internet, it looks like the cabanas are more in the middle of the action?!
    What do you think?

  8. Arnold Snyder

    I think for just two of you, the cabana makes more sense. The cabanas are more “in the middle of the action.” The bungalows would be better for a larger group that wanted more privacy.

  9. John Sanderson

    I have, perhaps, a silly question about logistics. I’m going to head over to the Sapphire pool for the afternoon on Sunday but might then like to experience the club later. Do they have lockers? Do guys just show up in bathing suits or are there change-rooms? Sorry if that’s a silly question. Thanks for the great site, Arnold.

    • Arnold Snyder

      John, the way it works is there is a pool security area where you can have your stuff stored while you’re at the pool, but it closes when the pool closes at 6 pm.

      But after 6 pm you can check your luggage at the club coat room while you enjoy the club.

      You change in an area of the pool men’s room before storing your luggage or after picking it up again.

      No lockers. 6 pm is also the cut-off time for the free Sunday limo to the airport.

      So, basically, you can carry out your plan as long as you’re willing to change and transfer your luggage from the pool security area to the club coat room by 6 p.m. Also, remember you’re on your own for a ride to the airport unless you catch the club limo by 6 pm.

  10. Cancon

    If my wife and I don’t rent a chair does that mean we’re standing up all afternoon, other than sitting at the bar or on the edge of the pool.

  11. Cancon

    Hi Arnold, If my wife and I (in our 50’s) rent chairs on the $70 per person package and will be arriving in our own vehicle on Sunday June 19 when it opens at noon and want to sit in a “quieter” spot a couple of rows away from the pool mainly to enjoy the people watching (girl watching), which area should we rush to. Or are our chairs pre-determined or should I tip the host/hostess for a specific location? Thanks.

    • Arnold Snyder

      Cancon, the lounge chairs are all right up against the pool. In back of the lounge chairs are all of the cabanas and bungalows.

      So the main choice is whether to be close to the bar or the DJ booth. The bar is nice if you want to get out of the sun and into the shade sometimes. There is also a waterfall/fountain/shower set-up on the bar end of the pool where the girls go to get wet. That’s good girl-watching.

      The other end of the pool, near the DJ booth, is where the go-go dancers are–excellent girl-watching.

      There’s also a chest-deep pool near the DJ booth with plexiglas sides, so you can see the girls’ bodies underwater–a definite attraction.

      The chairs are not pre-determined, so you can tip the host to get chairs at the pool end of your choice as long as you’re there early.

  12. MH

    Hey Arnold,
    I am heading down to Sapphires Pool Party in a week. I was wondering if there is a decent ratio of women to men? Specifically is this going to be a sausage party?
    Thank you and I’ve found this website to be very helpful.

    • Arnold Snyder

      MH: If the scenery you’re most interested in is young hot babes, Sapphire’s topless pool is probably the best in Vegas. Quite a few Sapphire dancers party at the pool in addition to all of the cocktail servers, go-go dancers, etc. Plus, some women who are not dancers also come to this pool, often in couples or groups. The dancers wear wristbands so you know which girls you can ask about doing private shows. There’s a good ratio of women to men, probably close to 50-50 when I’ve been there.

      If you’re trying to hook up with a girl for something more like a relationship, then this is probably not the pool for you, since such a large percentage of the women are “at work” so to speak. You’ll have better luck at one of the casino party pools.

  13. Bishop

    Arnold, we were in on Monday-Tuesday a couple of weeks ago. Had a blast at the club. Didn’t get to hit the pool. Thinkin about coming back in mid September. I wanted to know if the pool would still be open. Thanks bud and I love the site.

    • Arnold Snyder

      Bishop, last year the last weekend for Sapphire pool was the weekend after Labor Day weekend. I’ll double check with the club, but right now I’m assuming the last weekend will be Sept. 9 through 11th. Hope that works for you.

  14. Chris

    I checked their website and it says opening Spring 2017. Any idea when the pool is supposed to open this year? I would like to try the pool for the first time this summer. What is the valve of getting a cabana vs. daybed vs. chair? I’m be solo so I assume that plays into it. I like pools, but don’t like being in the water. I want to girl watch and hang out for the afternoon, meet the dancers and come back and enjoy the club with them later that night. Is the food any good? Do they give you a comp ride back to your hotel? at night I’ve always been able to get a ride back to my hotel, of course after being in the VIP area. Appreciate any insight.

    • Arnold Snyder

      Chris, the Sapphire Pool and Day Club opens Friday, April 21.

      A lounge chair is included with free limo, free drinks and free admission for roughly the price of just the drinks in one of the pool packages. It’s a lounge chair out in the sun along the edge of the pool.

      If you get a lounge chair or lounge chair package, the best seats are near the transparent pool at one end of the large pool or the shower fountain at the other end. The $70 lounge chair package deal includes a $50 beverage credit and a free shot (if you order it in advance online).

      The daybeds and cabanas are more expensive and the deals online are all for multiple guests. They provide shade and a place to entertain women at the pool. Daybed packages start at $305 on Fridays and Sundays (includes $250 in food and drinks) and $430 on Saturdays (includes $350 in food and drinks).

      So if you’re by yourself, you can girlwatch in the lounge chair and go to the bar when you want shade or to actually meet a dancer. And of course there’s always shade in the club VIP if you ask a dancer for a dance. (The Sapphire dancers wear pink wrist bands.)

      Sapphire has great food, both from the club grill and the gourmet Mexican restaurant on property. There will also be drink specials all day.

      You can probably get a comp ride back to your hotel, but you may have to wait until they’re heading out to pick up someone. If you’re spending money on any VIP package, ask a host to help you out.
