Pool season is in full swing and the recently debuted NoMad Pool offers visitors on the south end of the Strip a serene place to dine and relax. Located on the third-floor roof deck at The NoMad Las Vegas, the pool evokes the iconic Jardin Majorelle in Morocco, with blue accents, plush seating and luxurious daybeds and cabanas. Complementing the pool’s old-world elegance is the award-winning casual fare and expertly crafted cocktails, including dishes such as chef Daniel Humm’s signature truffle chicken club, lobster roll and fava bean hummus.
On Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, the atmosphere is turned up a few notches with JEMAA — The NoMad Pool Party, a high-energy daytime experience featuring DJs, tableside service and specialty cocktails (think cocktail fountains and elaborately garnished cocktail explosions) from award-winning bar director Leo Robitschek.
NoMad hotel guests have complimentary access to the pool, and locals with a valid ID enjoy complimentary entry into JEMAA before noon. jemaalv.com
