With its “retro Palm Springs meets classic downtown Las Vegas” vibe, the Pool at the Plaza brings a whole new rooftop pool experience to the downtown scene. The renovated pool deck provides guests with OVER 70,000 sq. ft. of ultimate relaxation and entertainment, making it one of the largest pool decks in downtown Las Vegas. Guests can enjoy a variety of newly added features including a refurbished wet deck, recreation facilities, and even an onsite food truck. Here’s everything you need to know about the new Pool at the Plaza.
Lounging in Style and Comfort
It always feels like a battle to find seats by the pool, but guests don’t have to worry about that at the Pool at the Plaza. The renovated wet deck features plenty of chaise lounge chairs and lily pad daybeds for guests. And for those who are looking to get the full lounge experience, there are also six brand new cabanas available for rental. These cabanas provide guests with a private poolside retreat that is close enough to all the activities. Each cabana is complete with its own TV, fan, refrigerator, and safe for guests’ belongings. They also include a complimentary fruit plate OR a cheese and cracker tray.
When you’re at the pool, there’s nothing more satisfying than having a drink (or two) in your hand. Guests can enjoy a refreshing cocktail poolside or at the walk-up bar just a couple feet from the pool. And when you’re feeling hungry, there’s no shortage of options at the Pool at the Plaza. The rooftop pool offers food options from Pop Up Pizza, Zaba’s Mexican Grill or from the pool’s own food truck. Yes, you read that correctly. There’s a full-size and full-service food truck just for pool guests. The on-site food truck is headed by chef Shawn Giordano who comes to the Plaza with decades of culinary experience. Giordano’s unique menu offers fresh seaside street food with a classic Californian touch. Some of the must-try menu items include ahi tuna poke lettuce wraps, crispy rice paper tacos, and the lobster rolls.
Up-Close and Personal Entertainment
Of course, no Vegas pool experience is complete without some live entertainment, right? As part of its massive renovation, The Pool at the Plaza includes a stage that overlooks the entire rooftop scene. The stage will offer a diverse lineup of live entertainment ranging from weekend DJs, concerts, and special events. Live entertainment performances will also support local events such as Plaza’s own Big Blues Bender and Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival. Previous events include a special performance by the Johnny Cash tribute band, Cash’d Out. With its featured performances, the Pool at the Plaza plans to create a laidback Palm Springs vibe rather than the typical day club experience on The Strip.
Endless Activities & Amenities
If you don’t feel like taking a dip in the pool, the Pool at the Plaza has you covered with a bunch of other exciting activities. The impressive rooftop space will soon include recreation courts for tennis, basketball, and Pickleball – a combination of tennis, table tennis and badminton (the Plaza even hosted a Pickleball exhibition with players from the USA Pickleball Association (USAPA) earlier this month). There are also tables for mini-craps and blackjack as well as other games (foosball, table tennis, and a sandbag-toss game). And if you’re just looking to relax and unwind, the 12-person hot tub is the perfect activity for you.
