Las Vegas invites you to get naked

Are you bold enough?

Unlike topless destinations around the world, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino attracts hotties willing to drop their tops and accept fewer tan lines. This stand in stark contrast to most topless beaches, where there’s a distinct lack of legitimate eye candy. The recent “Rehab” party, for example, offered up plenty of skin and is indicative of a new pool party trend in Las Vegas. The 21+ crowd is in the crosshairs of many hotels and resorts, and they are luring us with the oldest bait in the book.

“Daylife,” sunlight’s answer to “nightlife,” is the product Vegas is peddling. Adult pools and pool parties – complete with bottle service and the hardly dressed to deliver it – are bringing in big bucks, big names and big … well, I’ll let you guess. Celebrity hosts, such as Heidi Montag of “The Hills,” help make the pitch to bring you in the door (sans inhibitions).

And now for the disappointing news … it’s not as crazy as you’d expect (or hope). There still aren’t many topless pools in Las Vegas. Those that exist are generally reserved for guests, attract an older crowd and don’t require that the ladies go topless (most of them don’t). The big parties are a different story, where the odds of naked mayhem are much higher.

Hard Rock Hotel Las Vegas opens all-suites tower

Nothing says rock ‘n’ roll like white padded headboards and silk black out drapes. Thanks to the new all-suites tower at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, anyone can live like a rock star (at least for a night).

Touting a more ‘sophisticated rock ‘n’ roll experience,’ The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas will debut its new 374-suite tower on Monday. The $750 million new tower opens just as CityCenter welcomes guests to ARIA, Vdara and Mandarin Oriental. While CityCenter promotes elegance, luxury and entertainment within its 68-acres, the HRH Towers are offering something a little different: simplicity in a rockin’ environment.

The HRH Towers press materials claim extra privacy and more refined atmosphere will grace the halls of the tower suites (a clear departure from the typical chaos and raucous atmosphere of the iconic Hard Rock Hotel). The suites range from 701 to 4,300 square feet and come equipped with the ultimate rock paraphernalia: an AMX 12″ Touch Panel Juke Box System featuring over 2000 songs and two 40″ Bravia LCD TV with DVD players. Of course, every rock star needs a rock star bedroom, so the HRH Towers built in a white lacquer wall quilted headboard to ordain the leather sleigh bed. Black out drapes ensure you won’t wake up with the sun and for those rockers past their prime, the bathroom features cast iron tubs for soaking your sore muscles after a long night.

Guests at the new Hard Rock Hotel tower suites will have their own private entrance and separate check-in area.

The best part? You don’t have to pay rock star prices for these rooms. Rates start at $149 for weekday stays and $279 for weekends.
