As pool season begins making a splash in Las Vegas, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and Morgans Hotel Group are making a new addition to the scene with the opening of SKYBAR— a part of the $750 million property expansion.
Perched above the HRH Beach Club, the day-to-night pool deck creates an atmosphere for sun-seeking guests to enjoy the upper deck by day, while partygoers can escape the club scene to lounge under the stars by night. The setting overlooks the expanse of the Las Vegas Strip.
SKYBAR features a distinctive acrylic-edged pool with three peek-a-boo cutouts in the floor that act as skylight windows to the lower HRH Beach Club. Guests can lounge on the plush bar seating, custom daybeds, couches and banquettes or relax in any of the 14 cabanas surrounding a circular infinity wave pool . The cabana menu showcases the HRH Beach Club Bar & Grill and features premium spirits, bottle service and signature cocktails. SKYBAR and HRH Beach Club nearly double the overall size of the hotel's pool area.
Every Monday will be RELAX Monday at SKYBAR, created as a means to pay tribute to the local industry crowd with guest deejays spinning a variety of remixes, jungle and house music.
During the day, SKYBAR is open daily from noon - 8 p.m. Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Nighttime hours are 8 p.m. - midnight on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Admission is complimentary for HRH Hotel guests and $20 for the public. Upscale beach attire is strictly enforced.
