    I'm not generally a day club or night club guy in Vegas - because of the price...not the atmosphere.

    I'll be staying at the Flamingo and it looks like cover is only $20, so maybe me and my bro will try it out.

    Would you go to the day club, the night club...both?

    flamingo pool is kinda like a dayclub (maybe)?

    The night club appears to be open until 5am...wow.

    Cost of drinks?

    Can you use TR Credits for drinks?

    Can you leave and re enter?

    Hang out at both and see what suits you best. The dayclub scene will be a bit more pretentious with lots of roped off cabana, daybed, and table service and not a whole lot of pool space compared to a regular pool. Obviously the scenery will be a generous step above the GO pool crowd.

    The GO pool crowd in the afternoon is a white trash bash to put it mildly. If you want a more laid back but rowdy experience I suspect you will like the GO pool. I find it to be the most fun pool in Vegas, plus no charge if you stay at the hotel. Drink prices will be similar if not a little cheaper at the GO pool. They charge about $20 for the big drink in the souvenir cup and have buckets of beer for around $30-35

    For Drias night club - at the pool - the dress code says 'No Shorts'.

    I am a little surprised that an outside rooftop nightclub is not allowing short.

    Night

    Table reservations: (702) 737-0555

    Hours: 10 p.m.–5 a.m., Thursday–Sunday

    Square Feet: 25,000 (2,200 capacity)

    Dress code: Upscale fashion-forward attire. No fitted caps, shorts, or printed shirts with offensive or aggressive graphics.



    What does fashion-forward mean?


    Also...and don't judge, I just don't know, is the pool functional in the evening night club at Drais? (I would imagine not...but that's too bad).

    No fitted caps? So I could wear my adjustable Seahawks hat but not wear my fitted sideline New Era Seahawks hat?

    Yeah, that's pretty typical code for urban wear. Even though the fitted cap is nicer and more expensive than the adjustable hat.

    What are drink prices? Please don't say 'typical for a day club', as I have never gone and don't know what that means.

    If I show up around 2:00pm on a Tuesday in July wi I get in?

    Dress code: Upscale fashionable beachwear required. No jeans, basketball shorts, boots, inappropriate athletic wear such as jerseys, speedos/thongs or printed shirts with offensive or aggressive graphics.

    So tell me what I should be wearing that classifies as 'upscale fashionable beach wear'?

    Any sandals?

    How about a 'man purse'?

    Can you smoke their?

    Is it like a typical pool where you can put your shoes shirts and smokes on the ground and expect that they will still be there?

    I'm asking about the day club now.

    Im planning on going to Drais for my upcoming visit in september with my best friend, so can anyone enlighten me on the bungalow, is it worth it? And also for the $500,- F&B minimum, how does it work?
    Is it the fact that if you spend less,you still have to pay $500,- or is it $500,- on top of the fee you pay to rent a bungalow?

    The F&B covers the bungalow/admittance also. Personally yes it is as there is no where to sit down based on their website for free. Can you kill $500 between the 2 of you which includes food during the day? Most likely. Everything is overpriced and you will get close just by ordering 1 bottle and a few apps or such and you will probably want some bottled waters throughout the day which they charge for. Now add in a place to sit, cool down and have room for up to 12 people vs. walking around in the heat all day while having drinks and having to find a place to grab some food, etc.

    The $500 is use it or lose it. My assumption is you will pay that before you enter the pool to get the bungalow like every other place. You also have to remember the $500 does not include tax (8%) or gratuity, which I am sure will be auto gratuity of 20%, so $500= $640 all in no matter what.

    Hope this helps.
