When Adam and Eve lived in the Garden of Eden, they were given just one rule: Don't eat the apples. The parable has been replayed millions of times in every facet of life: Don't take cookies from the cookie jar; don't sit too close to the TV; don't touch that you'll go blind … well, you get the idea. Forbidden fruit is dangled in front of you all the time at Surrender nightclub. Here the fruit is an expansive pool that party-goers dance and socialize around all night long. The green-eyed snake that hangs behind one of the three bars reminds of us of the temptation. But, with the exception of a Thursday night pool party, no matter how warm it is during Vegas' summer nights, the warning that Adam and Eve had applies to Surrender clubgoers: Don't touch the forbidden fruit.
Now, if you can get past the temptation of jumping in that gorgeous pool, there are a lot of other enticing amenities you can surrender to at the club. The first is a laid-back vibe that can be hard to come by at the über-swanky Encore and its sister property Wynn Las Vegas. At Surrender, it is actually OK to enjoy yourself without feeling the need to get overly dressed up. That doesn't mean shorts and flip-flops are in order, but ladies feel free to wear stylish jeans without looking out of place.
