Big news out of Vegas this weekend as the Encore Beach Club and Surrender Nightclub are opening at the Steve Wynn owned Encore Hotel. Combined there was about 60,000 square feet of new space added as a result of the over $65 million project. That's the kind of money that buys double-decker bungalows, (for those times when a single deck just isn't enough!) private cabanas with flat screen televisions, and a gaming pavilion in addition to the hot tubs and three tiered adults-only pool (for those times when two tiers just aren't enough! I sense a pattern here...)
Today, the Las Vegas pool wars officially kicked off with the opening of George Maloof's Palms Pool & Bungalows. His infamous Ditch Friday parties will start up again May 7.
The other Strip splash spots aren't prepared to let Maloof take all the glory. MGM Grand has some heavy artillery in their canon to fire back with. After the their pool, Wet Republic, opens on March 12, reality star and new mother Kendra Wilkinson will host the complex's first big event on March 27, before the official grand opening on April 17. Then a week later, another E! starlet and mother Kourtney Kardashian will hold her birthday party at the pool, hosted by sisters Kim and Khloe.
