Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and Morgans Hotel Group have brought an outpost of Skybar to Las Vegas as part of the Hard Rock's $750 million expansion. Above the HRH Beach Club, the pool deck is available for day-to-night entertaining, with guests taking in the sun in daylight and the club scene after dark. The setting overlooks the Strip, and Skybar and HRH Beach Club nearly double the overall size of the hotel's pool area.

With sister locations at the Mondrian in Los Angeles and the Shore Club in Miami, this Skybar has a capacity of 200 and is available for buyout. (Kenny Chesney hosted the first private party there in mid-April.) It has an acrylic-edged pool with three cutouts in the floor that serve as windows to the HRH Beach Club below. There are plush bar seats, custom daybeds, couches, and banquettes dotting the teak plank floor.

The lower Skybar pool has 14 cabanas surrounding a circular infinity wading pool. The cabana menu comes from the HRH Beach Club Bar & Grill and includes cheeseburger sliders, crispy shrimp, chilled fruit skewers, and platters meant for sharing. Specialty cocktails and bottle service are also available.
