Las Vegas Pools: Daylife is born at WET REPUBLIC, an alluring 53,000-square-foot ultra pool at MGM Grand combining an exclusive nightlife vibe with poolside pampering and relaxation. An adults-only mecca for discerning partygoers, the glitterati and celebrities, WET REPUBLIC features distinct experiences within a series of intimate spaces and redefines poolside entertainment as the first ultra pool in the world's sexiest city. Elite VIP service, high-end amenities and renowned entertainers are standard at WET REPUBLIC.
"We've taken the best elements of Vegas nightlife and infused them with supreme poolside amenities and services at WET REPUBLIC, an unrivaled venue that has become the city's must-see, must-experience pool destination," said Anthony Olheiser, director of nightlife for MGM Grand. "WET REPUBLIC delivers a variety of experiences for our guests, whether they want to chill over cocktails in our poolside lounge, relax in our exclusive VIP bungalows, or bask in the party scene on the main pool deck. We’ve transformed the quintessential Vegas pool party to deliver a new standard of entertainment and luxury."
WET REPUBLIC envelops guests in a contemporary, linen-white palette adorned with vibrant hues of emerald green, turquoise and canary yellow evoking a sensuous South Beach ambiance. True to its name, water is the leitmotif at WET REPUBLIC with five separate pools and spas delivering an oasis of cool blue indulgence. At its centerpiece, WET REPUBLIC features two spectacular saltwater pools measuring 2,500 and 3,500 square feet, respectively. Six cascading waterfalls accent the vast poolscape and create the illusion of a never-ending flow of water.
Adjacent to the main pool area, WET REPUBLIC features a sultry 2,500-square-foot open-air ultra lounge delivering a matchless daylife party. The covered pool lounge is a place to mix, mingle, dance and dine while drinking in the pool's delicious atmosphere. At its focal point is an eye-catching 60-foot verde marble-topped bar with a custom glass base inset with chartreuse silk and bamboo. Dark wood floors juxtaposed against swanky cream-colored couches, lounge chairs and ottomans create a seductively modern vibe. White onyx tables throughout the venue serve double duty as dance platforms for guests to showcase sexy moves to the beats of renowned DJs.
Premier entertainment is at the core of WET REPUBLIC. A 4,100-square-foot sundeck transforms into a stage to spotlight celebrity guests and hot entertainers at off-the-hook weekly signature events. A custom DJ booth elevated above the pool area plays host to the world’s most celebrated DJs. DeadMau5, Benny Benassi, Sander Kleinenberg, Ferry Corsten, Sharam of Deep Dish, Roger Sanchez, Steve Angello, Kaskade and Bad Boy Bill are just a few who’ve hosted explosive parties under the sun at WET REPUBLIC. Eight state-of-the-art underwater speakers in the main pools complement the pool's top-tier sound system to keep the grooves bumping in every square inch of the destination.
While WET REPUBLIC’s main area entertains the crowds, the highest level serves as an exclusive escape with six VIP bungalows, three private spas and dedicated restrooms. Delivering panoramic views of the party scene, the ultramodern bungalows are decked out with plush offerings including a king-sized day bed, giant flat screen TV, Ninentdo Wii with the latest games, Blu-ray disc player with DVD library, fully stocked mini fridge and more. A favorite for celebrities, P.Diddy, Jay-Z, Rihanna, Paris Hilton, Pete Wentz, Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, Jessica Simpson, Lindsay Lohan, Carmen Electra, Lauren Conrad, Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush are just a few who frequent WET REPUBLIC’s VIP bungalows.
Sixteen hip party cabanas that line the pools are the hot spot to kick it with friends or meet new ones. The cabanas feature L-shaped oversized couches and ottomans along with all the amenities and services of the bungalows. Diligent sun-kissed servers attend to every detail from food and beverage orders to coordinating poolside massages by skilled therapists.
In addition to the bungalows and cabanas, guests may reserve spacious daybeds or oversized deluxe chaise lounges placed throughout the poolscape. The innovative lounges are adjustable on both ends, allowing guests to soak up the best rays throughout the day without having to physically swivel their chair. Combining the best of both worlds, multiple water lounges are located within the pool's six-inch-deep wet deck. Complimentary Wi-Fi also is offered throughout WET REPUBLIC.
Signature cocktails, premium bottle and pitcher service can be enjoyed within the lounge or ordered poolside. Intoxicating offerings such as Tequila Lime, Strawberry Margarita and White Russian Cocktail Push Ups and creative frozen libations are the definitive afternoon delight. Custom cocktails including the "Wet Tea Shirt" and "Poiradise" feature innovative twists on the classics. Pitcher service offers impressive pre-mixed cocktails such as Watermelon Mojitos and Patron Margaritas in specially made pitchers designed to keep beverages chilled to the max.
Guests can indulge in unique dishes such as the Thai Chicken Salad, Ultimate Grilled Cheese and Kobe sliders poolside or in the open air lounge. Fresh fruit fondue and delicious WET REPUBLIC "Woopie" Pies provide a sweet ending.
