"A long time Las Vegas pool party staple, this year, we're taking Ditch Fridays up a notch," said Bronson Olimpieri, Vice President and General Manager of the 9Group. "With A-list talent, an unrivaled scene, cold cocktails and great food, Palms Pool is going to be the best place to spend summer for both tourists and locals alike."
Also this season hungry pool-goers will be treated to a delicious menu of American bites from HERAEA by The ONE Group, the new vibe-driven sports restaurant and lounge whose patio overlooks all the action of the main pool. The menu for cabanas, daybed guests or al fresco diners at HERAEA includes a selection of refreshing snacks like fruit and veggie platters, salads and wraps, or savory items like the popular Piquillo Pepper Poppers or the Beef Satay Skewers. Thirst quenching beverages include buckets of domestic and imported beers or original cocktails like the Cîroc Coconut frozen cocktail – a mix of Cîroc Coconut, fresh coconut water and Calahua Crema de Coco served in a fresh coconut.
Guests can still have all of the action of the casino floor poolside and take advantage of a live blackjack pit on the weekends beginning in April.
