Go for a Night Swim at Las Vegas’ XS Nightclub

Tiësto spins at this season's inaugural Night Swim.

Though you can do plenty of each in this town, partying by day and partying by night tend to be very different experiences. The whole daylife pool club scene is an entirely different experience than your typical nightclub. Even when a nightclub opens up its pool patio, the general rule tends to be “stay away.”

Well, one curious addition to the nightlife landscape actually combines the daylife pool party vibe with the music and energy of nightlife. It’s called Night Swim and yes, you’re allowed to get in the pool this time.

Every Sunday, XS Nightclub at Encore opens up its pool patio for the night. Guests are encouraged to ditch the nightlife attire and instead bring their best swimwear to take a dip in the pool while dancing to tunes spun by some the world’s top DJs.

“Since opening, Sunday nights at XS have always been dedicated to electronic music, and now with the top line-up in the world on our roster, we honor that original programming by continuing to schedule the most celebrated DJs for Night Swim,” said Jesse Waits, managing partner of XS and Tryst nightclubs.

Wynn/Encore’s resident DJ program this year is definitely one for the music lovers, and XS’s Sunday night poolside party is no exception. Tiësto, Afrojack, deadmau5 and Steve Angello are among the world-class DJs that have spun since Night Swim opened for the season on May 20.

“This is the premier night time pool party in Las Vegas and a signature event for XS … giving our guests the opportunity to hear the best electronic dance music during an incomparable nightlife experience,” Waits said.

And the focus is on the pool party. A reversible booth ensures that DJs focus on the party around the pool, so you aren’t just getting some reverb and faint bass lines bounced off from the nightclub.

If the music selection isn’t enough to entice you, XS has VIP options aplenty, making these nights even better. The outside patio area at XS features a total of 26 poolside cabanas taking up two stories and a full view of the nighttime party scene. Each one comes equipped with a TV, fully stocked refrigerator, safe, misting system for hot summer nights and plush seating. Lily pads and day beds are also available to reserve.

If you’re looking for something different to do on the weekend, you won’t regret diving into Night Swim.
