With Vegas’ reputation as a hedonistic playground, some guests may ask about the availability of topless sunbathing poolside at their resorts.

Frequently Asked Questions About Topless Pools in Las Vegas
Is there a cover charge?
Every pool is different but yes, most of them charge an entrance fee to get into the topless pool area. This eliminates the casual voyeur from gawking and encourages poolside visitors to relax and enjoy.
Some hotels offer free entrance for their guests before noon, some charge a higher cover for men than for women. And some have no cover for women, or for men escorted by a woman. They acknowledge that the topless pools are an attraction and the aim is to minimize casual curiosity.
Is this a meat market?
No, it is not, and in fact, the hotels will politely ask you to keep any public displays of affection or other visibly amorous advances private. While the pools are 18+ or 21+ age-restricted for entry, this is still just a pool and not a free-for-all roman orgy so we should all behave accordingly.
Any “what happens/stay in Vegas” kinds of activities you may wish to partake in should take place in private, behind the closed doors of your hotel suite.
Is being topless required or enforced?
This question may sound odd, but imagine you are in a group and someone in your party isn’t comfortable taking off their top… No worries, there is no requirement. Topless sunbathing is always optional, never required. Once you enter the pool area, wear a much or as little as you care to wear ABOVE the belt, and that brings us to our next question…
Can I go bottomless as well?
No, you may not. As alluded to earlier, American attitudes toward nudity is a little more prudish when compared to some international locations such as the south of France or much of Australia. The fact that you are allowed to remove your top is about as far as any “public” pool in Las Vegas will allow, so make sure your bottoms are stylish as they will be staying on.
Am I safe at the topless pools in Las Vegas?
We can answer this question with a solid and resounding yes! Never let your guard down anywhere, as any place can become unsafe in the wrong circumstances, but at the topless pools in Las Vegas, you are protected by the same rules as the rest of the world, as well as being subjected to more restrictive rules designed to keep you safe and comfortable.
Rules such as Do not “touch” another sunbather, even “bumping into” you will be seen as an infraction against your personal safety, and the offender will be ejected. No photography is allowed whatsoever! Even if someone is innocently taking a picture of their poolside margarita, once the phone or camera is taken out, the offender will also be taken out.
You are as safe here as anywhere in Las Vegas, perhaps more so since the rules are being closely monitored for your safety. Overall, your safety is staff’s top priority at topless pools in Las Vegas.
The 5 Best Topless Pools in Las Vegas
European Pools at the Wynn Encore Complex
The Encore Beach Club and XS Nightclubs are popular pools full of guests, but if you’re looking to sunbathe in a more relaxed atmosphere, step over to the smaller and more exclusive European pool at Encore, often considered as one of the best topless pools in Las Vegas.
Fewer revelers, less noise, but still plenty of action with poolside gaming tables so you can cool off your body without dousing your hot winning streak. You can also get your food and drinks delivered poolside, so you may never want to leave the water again here at one of the best topless pools in Las Vegas.

Moorea Beach Club at Mandalay Bay Resort
Be cautious about just ripping off your top and flinging it aside as you dive into the deep end of any Las Vegas pool, the rules are always changing and it seems the topless-ness of any resort is subject to change. For the longest time we would have recommended the Venus Pool Lounge at Caesars Palace but it has recently ended its run as a topless pool in Las Vegas.
On the bright side, the Moorea Beach Club at Mandalay Bay has been designed since its inception as a topless pool and shows no signs of stopping any time soon! But always check ahead to be sure…
- Open Daily: 11:00 AM – 7:00 PM
- Female hotel guests: Complimentary
- Male hotel guests: Usually complimentary Monday through Thursday
- Non-guests: $30-$50 depending on demand
Marquee Dayclub at Cosmopolitan
The Cosmopolitan is commonly seen as a hipper, younger scene than some of the more established and traditionally known hotels on the Strip but even for a resort known for being a hot spot, the Marquee Dayclub is hopping and popping all day long with the Strip’s liveliest party atmosphere.
You can look over at traffic on Las Vegas Boulevard while the DJs are spinning the tunes and you enjoy the sun on your body. The pool goes fully clothed once the sun goes down but the party never stops as the Marquee Dayclub becomes Marquee Nightclub and you can dance until the sun comes back up.
- Open Daily: 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM
- Topless: Monday through Thursday
- Cover: $20 and up.
- Local women: Free

Daydream at The M
If you’re interested in a more “local” topless pool in Las Vegas, take a quick drive south just off the strip at Henderson and visit DayDream at The M Resort. This topless pool is more likely to have locals enjoying the scene than a bunch of tourists dropping by.
This welcoming and hospitable party feeling the DayDream cultivates is something the locals cherish and you are likely to feel more a sense of acceptance and inclusively that you may feel at some of the more adventurous or exhibitionist topless pools in Las Vegas.
- Open: Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays, 11:00 AM – 6:00 PM
- Locals: $10
- Non-locals: $20
European Pool at Artisan Hotel Boutique
And if you are looking for that daring and risque kind of experience, just north off the Strip at Sahara and the 15, the Artisan Hotel Boutique has the “Naked Pool” recently renamed as the “European Pool”.
The renaming is focused on giving the hotel a new fresh upgrade with a Spanish-themed restaurant bar and updated rooms but the focus is still on the beauty and titillation of the nude human form. There are no visitors passes, the only access to Artisan’s European Pool is strictly for guests of the hotel.
- Open Daily: 10:00 AM – 7:00 PM
- Fee: The fee to enter varies. It’s best to check with the hotel.
