Encore Beach Club (Encore) has 8 bungalows that will be the second or third most upscale of any pool bungalows in Vegas. The 3 bungalows at Palms are 1,500 square feet and air conditioned with their own Jacuzzis and go for $3,000 Sun-Thur and $4,000 for Friday and Saturday. Marquee has announced some strong specs but we haven’t had a chance to see them yet. The Encore bungalows are on either the lower or upper level and are 350 square feet, air conditioned and with their own bathroom. They will hold about 20 people. Lower level units have a Jacuzzi but the upper ones have more room around them plus a better view. Both upper and lower level bungalows can be $15,000 for a major holiday. Even though EBC has not opened yet their bungalows are selling out for Memorial Day Weekend.
The 220 square feet cabanas are roughly double the size of most in Vegas and are air conditioned. Their 42” flat screens are also larger than most that are usually 32 to 40 inches. The 26 Encore Beach Club cabanas will hold about 12-15 guests for about $7,000 on the busiest weekends and as low as $1,500 when less crowded. 19 day beds joined by about the same number of lily pads. Lily pads are in the water and a little smaller than the day beds that can accommodate about 7-8 people. Pricing will be the same for day beds and lily pads with a minimum food and beverage spend of $2,000 for the holiday. Non peak these will go for about $750 which means 2 bottles at $450-$550 will meet the minimum.
Switch will be the restaurant for the Encore pool party with BBQ recently added to the coming menu. As a general rule, pool party food in Vegas is pretty good though pricy and Encore Beach Club is at the top of its game, though we did not try the barbecue. The small 5,000 square feet Surrender nightclub is part of the complex with decking bridging the facilities for a total square footage of about 60,000 for Encore Beach Club—about the same size as Wet Republic’s 53,000.
