You haven’t been to Miami unless you’ve hit up one of the endless amounts of pool parties going on! Whether you want a raucous afternoon in the sun or a relaxing day to work on your tan, there’s something for everyone.
501 Marlins Way, Miami
This pool party is truly an “only in Miami” event you can’t miss! Opened in 2012, the pool is located right next to the dugout for you to have an up close and personal view of every home game. Throw on your swim gear and party is up with 250 other revelers, as well as dancers, body painting, and drinks. Go in on a group rate, or join the party and pay a cover charge. After the game, the party continues when the pool is open to everyone 21 and older.

Live the highlife at Miami’s iconic Fontainebleau with pool parties from noon to 7 pm on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. The 21 and up crowd is for hotel guests or those indulging in a cabana only. Imagine jamming out to tunes from DJ K-Razor, along with butler service, a 32-inch flat-screen television, mini fridge, photo with data connection, and of course wireless internet, so you can upload all the selfies you want.
401 N. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd., Fort Lauderdale
A one-of-kind pool experience, at the WET floor guests can walk through the pool in a clear staircase, watching bathers swim through the pool. Lay out in the sun, relax in the hot tub, or jam out to the DJ. If you want to go all out, rent a cabana with Fiji water, fruit, 19-inch flat screen, and drinks. For a quieter afternoon, head to WET West for a view of the Intracoastal on a comfy lounge chair.
485 Brickell Ave., Miami
Come May, Sunday pool parties return to the Viceroy for one of the best views in the city from the 50th floor. Take a trip on the express elevator, where you’ll be let out into the sexy ultra lounge and dance floor. Outside, revel in the sun at the rooftop pool’s cabana beds and relax to the tunes coming from the DJ booth.
