Wet Republic is essentially an outdoor nightclub. This 53,000-square-foot "ultra pool" takes it to the max. Chill over cocktails in the poolside lounge, relax in a VIP bungalow or cabana, or just cool off in one of the eight pools (two containing saltwater) a first in Las Vegas, that together measure more than 6,000 square feet. The open-air lounge alone is a 2,500-square-foot space with a 60-foot verde marble-topped bar with bamboo accents. Dark wood floors make the cream-colored couches and lounge chairs pop. Wet Republic also contains six cascading waterfalls, a large sundeck--which doubles as a performance stage--and an elevated DJ booth. And don't worry if you go for a swim, the eight underwater speakers will make sure you don't miss a beat.
A bar area, complete with a very ultra-lounge feel (but outdoors and during the day), runs the length of the main pools and it's set up to be a pretty great meeting spot. From that bar comes not only frozen drinks and cocktails, but Wet Republic's "pitcher" service - pitchers full of fun, summer drinks, like mojitos. Not surprisingly, Wet Republic is for guests 21 and older.
How you want to sit at the pool (versus the bar) depends on how you want to spend the day. For in-pool action, 18 water lounges are scattered throughout the shallow end of the pool. If that sounds good, except for the whole being-in-the-water part, there are 80 chaise lounges laid out around the deck, with reversible headrests for when the sun is facing the other way.
If the pockets on your swim trunks run deep, there are 18 daybed options. If they run deeper still, 10 party cabanas line the side of the pool. If you're going to go all out (but not all off - Wet Republic bucked the trend of European pools in Vegas and is requiring women to wear tops), check in to one of the pool's six "VIP bungalows."
The bungalows, which are probably nicer than what's in your house, come with reserved chaise lounges, a fridge, an X-Box 360, a flat-screen TV and they share a private spa area and bathroom.
