Liquid Pool Lounge may not be the easiest place to find but this secluded adult oasis deep within Aria Resort & Casino is well worth the search. Hidden away behind the property’s main pool complex is a 16,000 square foot tropical paradise that will make you feel as if you are worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the Las Vegas Strip.

Towering palms along the perimeters add to the seclusion and provide privacy for guests as they lounge by the pool and sip on specialty cocktails while soaking in the summer sunshine. World class DJs keep the atmosphere lively but the vibe here is slightly more sophisticated and laid back than what you’ll find at some of the other area mega dayclubs.

Lounge chairs at Liquid are complimentary and available on a first come, first served basis, so guests are urged to arrive early to avoid missing out on this perk. Additional seating includes eight L-shaped banquettes, seven U-shaped banquettes, more than two dozen additional banquettes with tables and day beds all scattered around the main pool deck with great views of the DJ booth. The luxurious handcrafted wicker daybeds and lounge chairs are designed by Janus Et Cie while umerous umbrellas provide welcome shade from the hot sun.

Eight grand cabanas offer an exclusive party experience with mini fridges, ceiling fans, 40” flat screen TVs, two daybeds and a private pool area.

Master chef Brian Massie created the specialty food menu available at the poolside restaurant, which seats up to 50 guests. Sunbathers can snack on delectable Mahi Mahi tacos, Buffalo chicken wraps, fresh salads, Kobe cheeseburgers and a variety of tasty appetizers, including LG Signature chicken wings, jalapeno tacos and shrimp cocktail. The restaurant also serves its exclusive Cabaletta’s Saison Golden Ale, a beer created by Aria mixologist Craig Schoettler and Stillwater Artisanal Ales of Baltimore.

Specialty cocktails are sold in 32 oz souvenir cups or pitchers. The venue’s signature Liquid Fusion is a decadent drink combining Skyy Infusion Passion Fruit, Blood Orange puree, X-Rated Fusion liqueur, rock candy syrup and fresh lemon juice. The Liquid Mai Tai is a mixture of Atlantico Reserva Rum, Atlantico Platino Rum, orange juice and pineapple juice.

What Liquid lacks in overall square footage, it more than makes up for in ambience and value. Prices for cabana rentals are slightly less than some of the other Strip resorts charge with food, beverage and retail purchases credited to the minimum.

This secluded pool lounge is the perfect place to relax and work on your suntan during the week. On the weekends, it provides a lively pool party alternative to dealing with the massive crowds congregating at the larger venues around town.
