Bare Pool Lounge
European-style sunbathing, a.k.a. Las Vegas topless pools, have often been revered around the world as an exotic and intimate place to unwind and enjoy a day with complete freedom. In Las Vegas, these pool parties(link https://www.bachelorettevegas.com/pool-parties/) have been dwindling in numbers and popularity, but one that continues to stand the test of time is Bare Pool Lounge at The Mirage Hotel & Casino. This relaxing 14,000 square foot oasis, that is hidden within the Secret Garden of the Mirage, is a Polynesian themed pool club filled with rentable Cabanas, Daybeds, and Poolside couches.
While it is optional to be topless at Bare, the fact that you can do so without any repercussions is an appealing proposition, especially for a more peaceful day at the pool. The atmosphere and vibe of Bare is much more subdued compared to the Mega-Clubs in the City. This venue is perfect for a chill Sunday Funday or a bachelorette party looking to recover after a full weekend of shenanigans on The Strip. With reasonable bottle prices and lower minimums, Bare is a value Beach Club for those looking to be a VIP for the day.
When the Las Vegas desert heat index soars into the triple digits during the summer months, there is really no better place in the city to cool off, refresh, and recharge than at Bare Pool Lounge. Whether you and your friends need to recover from an all-nighter in a shaded Cabana or you are interested in replenishing your energy levels with a poolside brunch, Bare Pool has you covered and more than delivers what its name suggests, European-style sunbathing.
Location & Hours of Operation
Bare Pool Lounge is located at The Mirage Hotel & Casino on the Main Pool Deck, hidden in the tropical and artificial forest on the outskirts of the pool next to the Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin exhibit. We definitely recommend checking out both of these before or after your day at Bare, it is an amazing experience to see Lions, Tigers, and Dolphins up close and personal.
The hours of operation at Bare are 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. and it is open seven days a week during the Summer season. Fridays, Saturdays, and Mondays are the most popular days.
Finding Bare can be confusing to say the least; follow the signs or ask security personnel as you're making your walk through the casino to guide you to the entrance. Once you arrive, you will meet your Bachelorette Vegas VIP Host and we will get you right in.
What is The Bare Pool Dress Code?
Bare’s dress code is fairly relaxed since it is more of a lounge type of pool. Pool attire is recommended; however, many girls wear sundresses and gowns as well. As a European Style Pool, you can go topless once inside. Typically, around 20-40% of the girls go topless throughout the day depending on those who have the courage to do so.
Outside of traditional pool clothing, chains, baggy clothing, ripped or cut-off clothing, see-through clothing and clothing with studs and hooks, cargo shorts, khaki shorts, jerseys, pants, undergarments, and any athletic gear is not be allowed. Sunglasses and hats are permitted. Ladies, you will need cover-ups for your swimsuits and bikinis for entry.
The Cost of Drinks
Similar to all MGM Group venues, the drink prices fall into the industry standard of $12-15 for a beer and $18-$25+ for a specialty cocktail. Pricing depends on what type of alcohol or mixed drink you order and if you want a single, double, or triple drink. We have Bare’s 2021-2022 Menu below, just click on the button and scroll down.

Tickets for Bare
MGM Nightlife Security
You must be 21 years of age to enter Bare and have a valid form of ID; pictures on your phone of your identification won't be enough for entry, and neither will a temporary paper document. If you are not from the United States and have a foreign ID, you will be required to show your passport, so please bring it, or you will have to go back to your room to get it.
When coming to Bare Pool Lounge, expect to go through a security check point. There is a zero-tolerance policy for hardcore drugs and other substances. If you are found with these, there is a possibility you will be permanently banned or “86ed” from the property.
What is Bottle Service?
By definition, Bottle Service means purchasing alcohol in higher quantities from the venue directly instead of having to wait in line at the bar and buy drink after drink. With Bottle Service, you get a full-service waitress and busser to pour drinks for you and your group while also keeping your area clean and secure for the day. You will be paying a premium to secure a table and Bottle Service in the club, but it does have many perks aside from the service staff. Private seating, an area to safely secure your belongings, and a home base for the day are just a few of them.
What's a Minimum Spend?
The minimum spend is the amount you agree upon in advance to spend on alcohol, The minimum amount determines which table or real estate in the nightclub you are reserving for the evening. The better tables in the Beach Club, like the Cabanas, will have a higher minimum spend agreement required to secure it. Also, on days that fall on holiday weekends, you can expect a higher minimum to reserve a particular table. Please keep in mind that all clubs in Las Vegas, including Bare Pool Lounge, operate on a supply and demand system.
When we quote pricing, it's just an estimate based on what we think the demand will be for that night; however, if there is an influx of clientele spending or you arrive at a much later time, the guarantee that you will get the particular table you are requesting may be in jeopardy as other guests might bid higher to reserve that section. Having a direct line of communication with the independent host you are working with and being upfront and accurate with your time of arrival, is the best strategy for a stress-free and hassle-free Bottle Service experience.

BUNGALOWS / CABANAS
The Bungalows and Cabanas are a Vegas-must for the pool!
Cabanas Main Pool (20 ppl)
Cabanas are labeled 1-6 on the Map and are located on the right-hand side of the venue from the entrance. These are perfect for a group of 15 to 20. They are very spacious and have a comfortable couch and a Daybed for lounging. By Vegas standards they are reasonably priced.
VIP Pool Day Beds (6-8 ppl)
The VIP area boasts an elevated platform and a glass infinity-edge pool that overlooks the rest of the venue. Naturally, more women end up hanging up out here, and the daybeds are more desirable, hence the higher minimum. Typically, this area is where most of the women who choose to go topless hangout.
VIP Table (10-12 ppl)
Some people prefer to be in the VIP area but don't care for a Daybed. There are four VIP tables; they are more like standing 4-tops, with chairs around them to enjoy the scenery.
Day Beds Main Pool (6-8 ppl)
The Entry-Level Daybeds are perfect for smaller groups on a budget. These beds sit in front of the Cabana Row area and around the main pool. They offer a nice amount of space to hang out, and the prices are very reasonable compared to the other larger beach clubs in town. So, if your budget is tight or you want to get a package deal, the Daybed is a great option for a smaller hen party.
Chairs Main Pool Only (1 Person Per)
This is one of the few venues in Vegas that we consider a pool party that offers individual chairs. They're perfectly positioned right next to the main pool and sell at $50 to $100 for minimum spend. Reserving one of these side by side for each person in your party could be a good idea to control the pool deck. With very low minimums, these tables are a great way to split the bill and have each person in your party pay for what they want to drink and eat throughout the day.
What is The Total Cost?
Let's do the Math
Let’s say you wanted to reserve a Regular Cabana:
|$1500 (minimum Spend)|
|+ $125.63 (8.375% City Tax)|
|+ $150 (10% Venue Fee)|
|+ $300 (20% to the server)|
|= $2075.63 Total|
Cost out the door if you do not exceed the minimum spend agreement
The Best Tables and the Best Value
While the Cabanas have the most space and are centrally located near the main pool, our personal favorite tables at Bachelorette Vegas are the Daybeds and tables elevated by the VIP Pool. With the infinity style pool overlooking the pool deck, this area is very secure and is often the center of attention as many guests in this area choose to “bare” it all and go topless.
Bottle Service Deals & Packages
Just to give you an idea of a typical Bottle Service minimum, you'd be looking at around $1,000 before tip and tax for two premium bottles of your choice. These bottles retail on the menu for around $495 each. After all taxes, tips, and service fees the total cost comes to just about $1400 all-in. We can customize your experience with a package deal that includes limo service, a post pool party dinner, and also tickets to a popular male revue show or male strip club.
Premium one-liter bottles at Bare Pool Lounge start at $450 for Rum, while most premiums including Grey Goose Vodka, are priced significantly less than other major beach clubs in the City at $500. Check out the Bare Pool Lounge Bottle Service Menu below.
Bottle Service Presentations
Like other beach clubs in the City, the cocktail servers are there to provide presentations for Bottle Service reservations. Stagettes specifically get catered to the most with confetti and signs congratulating the bride to be. Since the minimum spend agreements are lower at this venue compared to other clubs in the City, you can likely spend a reasonably low amount and get an excellent presentation.
We'll have to check with the cocktail server to see what the deal is on the event day. More than likely, you will have to order some kind of champagne to trigger a presentation. Let us know if you want a customized presentation and we will make it happen.
Other MGM Nightlife Venues
During the past few years, MGM has been slowly taking back more and more of the clubs and pools located on their properties. They took back Bare in 2019 from the Hakkasan Group, and recently they took back Hyde in the Bellagio and turned that into Mayfair. The recently renovated Park MGM Hotel & Casino, the very unique venue, On the Record, and the beautiful Jemma Pool Party. They also operate the Moorea Beach Club at Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino which is another European-style pool. So, if you are interested in Bare, you will like Moorea Beach Club as well.
What Else You Need to Know
The actual pool itself is pretty small so at times when no one is inside swimming, it almost feels like a private pool. The elevated VIP Pool area that has the see-through infinity pool glass is perfect for mingling and the closest they have to a private pool.
Pool Toys and Swag
This pool is upscale and classy, and while there might be some crazy splashing going on, it's not big enough for any pool toys or cheesy swag you see some bachelorette parties sporting.
Monday's Industry Party
For those who dare to stay past an entire weekend partying in Las Vegas, Mondays are often a dull day in the City; however Bare Pool Lounge is one shining spot that we definitely recommend. Many in the service industry chose to let off some steam on Mondays at Bare. Mondays at Bare have been a very fun party over the years; reasonably priced, not insanely packed, and a perfect vibe to mix and mingle.
Lockers and Bag Check
If you choose to go to the Club with regular admission, or at a Daybed or lounge, these tables do not include a safe area to preserve and protect your personal belongings. Bare does offer rentable lockers to house these items and they are located near the front of the venue. The pricing does change often but typically the cost is $50-$75 for the day.
Quality of Crowd
Since Bare is not a major beach club with chart topping DJs, and also not a high occupancy capacity venue, its crowd is a bit more diverse and leans more towards an older and more mature demographic. Many affluent socialites who are looking for a more relaxed setting, choose to come to Bare, along with those who want to express themselves fully by going topless. Overall, the age range is between 30-50 years old with a mixture of younger guests here and there.
Bachelorette Vegas Advice:
Bare Pool Lounge is a tropical oasis in the middle of the desert. Its compact size provides an intimate space for groups and individuals, and the European-style, topless-optional dress code provides women a liberal place to express themselves and their bodies.
If you’re looking for a bachelorette party celebration or a unique place to relax and rewind in, the affordable prices for Bare’s Cabanas and the VIP Pool area are appealing. In our opinion, Sundays and Mondays are the best days to check out this Pool Club or on a Thursday to start your weekend off, check out our all-inclusive packages are an incredible compared to the normal pricing for bottles, not only at Bare, but at all of the major beach clubs in the City.
