‘European-Style’ Topless Swimming Pools in Las Vegas

Travel Blog  •  Jim Benning  •  08.16.07 | 7:07 AM ET

imageLast week, we noted a guide to the top family friendly pools in Las Vegas. This week in the San Francisco Chronicle, World Hum contributor Matt Villano offers a guide to a very different Las Vegas pool experience: the topless pool. A few high-end Las Vegas resorts are now offering such pool areas—often set back behind foliage—for what can be a pretty hefty charge. “Dubbed ‘adult bathing,’ this phenomenon is an attempt to bring ‘European-style’ topless tanning to age-appropriate Vegas pools,” Villano writes. “Properties such as Caesars Palace, the Mirage and Mandalay Bay each have opened venues in the past 18 months; admission ranges from free to $30 for women and as much as $50 for guys, depending on the day.”

Villano toured the pools recently, including the Venus Pool Club at Caesars, Bare Pool Lounge at the Mirage and Moorea Beach Club at Mandalay Bay—tough gig—and offered his take on the scene:

At all three pools, topless women were perhaps what best attracted a crowd. There is so much jiggling and wiggling around the pool that an ordinary day in the sun can feel like a debauchery-filled bachelor party at the Minxx Gentlemen’s Club & Lounge, the city’s most famous strip club.

While ogling women technically isn’t permitted near the adult pools, pool visitors regularly steal not-so-furtive glances of anything they can glimpse. Even at Moorea, where a craps table is no more than 10 feet from the sand, some of my friends were too distracted to gamble.

If only they’d offered a Peruvian guinea pig lunch, Villano would have been in heaven.
