Pool fare in Sin City has long pulled from kitchens belonging to other restaurants in the hotel, but Wet Republic is equipped with its own dedicated kitchen. Olheiser calls the venue's burgers, wraps and eccentric dessert options, "fun, yet comfortable." Wet Republic is also spacious enough to host entertainers, when it's warranted (which is always) and they don't hesitate to bring in big-name DJ talent to spin for pool guests

How you want to sit at the pool (versus the bar) depends on how you want to spend the day. For in-pool action, 18 water lounges are scattered throughout the shallow end of the pool. If that sounds good, except for the whole being-in-the-water part, there are 80 chaise lounges laid out around the deck, with reversible headrests for when the sun is facing the other way. If the pockets on your swim trunks run deep, there are 18 daybed options. If they run deeper still, 10 party cabanas line the side of the pool.  If you're going to go all out (but not all off -- Wet Republic bucked the trend of European pools in Vegas and is requiring women to wear tops), check in to one of the pool's six "VIP bungalows."
