In Greater Phoenix, you don't have to look very far to find sprawling water parks, posh cabanas and enviable poolside ambiance for swimming and lounging all summer long. However, if you're looking for the turn up — complete with bottle service, celebs, world-renown DJs, and plenty of sunshine — here are the best pool parties taking place throughout Phoenix this summer.
Many of these events are over by the end of summer, but you can enjoy the party vibes of these pools year-round! If you're looking for more places to lounge poolside, check out our roundup of the best resort pools around Greater Phoenix.
Located right in the heart of CityScape, Kimpton Hotel Palomar Phoenix’s third-floor pool is not only a picture-perfect place for swimming and sunning, it's also home to the OG of Phoenix's rooftop bars. A perennial hotspot, Eden Rooftop Bar pairs stunning views and complimentary loungers with craft cocktails and tasty snacks — so you can stay all day. Bonus: This rooftop also hosts a wide variety of events, including weekly rooftop yoga classes on Thursday and live music from 6 to 9 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
This Old Town Scottsdale club sets itself apart from the others with its pool scene. Ironically, that's also what sets it apart from other pool parties (it's the only non-accommodation to offer this type of entertainment). During the summer months, Maya reaches its absolute peak potential with DJs filling up the weekly calendar. Choose from Float Fridays, Soaked Saturdays, Sunday Night Drip, Monday Night Swim and After Dark this summer.
