Dive into the Good Life with The Aquatic Club
Inspired by social and athletic clubs of decades past, The Aquatic Club serves up craft cocktails, posh amenities and a unique pool scene
LAS VEGAS (Mar. 21, 2017) – The Aquatic Club, an exceptional new pool experience at The Palazzo® Las Vegas, is set to debut this April. Offering up sophistication and style with a twist, this Las Vegas day-club alternative is inspired by the intimate yet energetic environment of social and athletic clubs of decades past.
“The Aquatic Club stands apart from what already exists in the Las Vegas day club and adult pool line-up,” said Lisa Marchese, chief marketing officer of The Venetian®, The Palazzo and Sands® Expo. “It’s purposefully different in almost every regard. It is bespoke in scale, timelessly cool and throwback to the days of Aquatic, Racquet and Lawn Clubs.”
Outfitted in crisp white, navy and aqua blues, and spikes of red and green, every detail has been selectively curated to personify a sport-couture lavish lifestyle. For instance, pool staff embody the spirt of the club by donning swimwear and stylings from famed designer Tory Burch and her signature athletic line, Tory Sport. A series of cabana murals are a modern and energetic take on traditional stripes from swim clubs of the past. A unique mural was created for each cabana, featuring bold energetic line work where fashion and sport collide. The artwork was inspired by the color field painting movement and minimal abstract expressionism art of the 1940s and ‘50s.
Guests can expect a comfortable and upbeat atmosphere on the buzzing pool deck, with evolving experiences every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Think: luxurious art-adorned cabanas, throwback cocktails, boozy artisan ice-pops, and a playful range of retro-inspired music, from jazz to ‘80s pop to hip hop. Afternoons at The Aquatic Club will be choreographed with additional signature activities to reflect each day’s personality:
- Fridays – a weekend kick-off featuring worldly hip-hop, Afro Cuban and global beats. One pool is set aside for non-competitve, semi-buzzed table tennis on a floating table. A “Connoisseur Series” will feature tastings by invited distilleries and mixologists.
- Saturdays – a celebration of retro-inspired music with “pop up” moments such as surprise performances from synchronized swimmers.
- Sundays – featuring live acoustic music that morphs into tranquil electronica. A bloody mary bar will also include red and green snappers, the precursor to the famous Sunday morning cocktail. Poolside spa treatments can be paired with the summer’s perfect frozen cocktail -- the frosé.
The Aquatic Club will offer poolside fare from Wolfgang Puck including sushi, salads and the chef’s signature pizzas. The beverage menu is divided into two sections: the first – heavy on retro gin drinks like Bees Knees and French 75 – evokes a sense of nostalgia; the second is a glamorous take on contemporary cocktails, with fresh fruity vibes. In addition, throwback snacks from The Prohibition Treat Trike – including spiked ice cream bars and boozy ice pops – will keep the club cool.
The Aquatic Club will be open Friday through Sunday, 11 a.m. through 6 p.m. All guests must be 21 years of age and older. Reservations are recommended by calling 866.834.2319.
