You know you're having a truly fabulous time if you're taking shots with complete strangers and then find yourself having a chicken fight with random people in the pool.
There's eye candy galore for all; everyone there is beautiful. We even spotted a Brad Pitt and Angelina look-a-like couple. They could have really been there, but we were so sloshed, who knows.
We arrived early - at 11am to be exact. Doors opened five minutes later, and since we were pretty much the only people there, all of us girls got in free. Surprisingly, there was no line, since you typically have to get there at least half an hour before doors open to get in line. We were also lucky to get first pick of chairs (green lounge chairs inside the pool are the only free seats), so we got the best ones near the pool. We got the two $100 chairs (the drink/food minimum) on one end of the pool that were situated in their own little cove with two green chairs right next to them.
The $100 minimum is easily met, especially if you get pitchers of their frozen drinks (the frozen watermelon mojitos are awesome), which start at $75. Plus the food is really yummy, and are huge portions meant for sharing. We got a bucket of tasty chicken tenders and waffle fries, and the Philly cheese steak quesadillas (only so-so).
Although the pool was pretty dead to start, it got crazy later on. Now, if you can party all day here, in the sun, drinking non-stop, and still be able to go out clubbing until 4am, I take my hat off to you; you are a true rockstar.Recommended for:Trendsters

The most raucous pool party on the Strip is at the MGM Grand, where hundreds of mostly twentysomethings (but also thirtysomethings) flood the pools throughout the summer, especially on Sundays. Cool DJs, buckets of beer, frozen cocktails and alcoholic popsicles all combine to put the party scene over the top.

**MY WET DREAM CAME TRUE**
After experiencing WR twice already, I didn't think it could get any better. Guess what? It did.
Wet Republic during Labor Day Weekend was insane in the membrane AWESOME.
WILD, HOT, AND HEAVY.
Throw in some hot-ass bitches and bad-ass DJs and you got yourself the best pool party in town.
No stupid attitude from security.
Bartenders are super friendly. A shot seemed like a double each and every time.
It was like WMC in Vegas.
It definitely made up for our Encore Beach Club SOLD OUT experience.

Good size pool party at the MGM. Can get pretty busy, especially when a top dj is spinning. The food is probably the best I've had at any of the pool parties on the strip. Went recently to see Calvin Harris and he was incredible!

Wet Republic, MGM Grand
Otherwise known as the ultra-pool at MGM Grand, Wet Republic packs thousands of revelers into two saltwater pools, plus lounges, daybeds, cabanas, and bungalows. The pool has been overhauled as part of the hotel-wide “Grand Renovation.” An expanded DJ booth sits under massive new LED displays with special effects, and the marble bar now stretches for 95 feet. Order pitchers of summer drinks like mojitos, all served in the crisp blue and white venue by models—Wet Republic doesn’t hire; it holds casting calls.
When to Go: Sundays for DJ Robbie Rivera.
Admission: $10 for women, $20 for men.
Open to Non-Hotel Guests? Yes.
Family Friendly? Adults 21 and over.

If you want dancing, great music, and a substitute for Rehab since they are only open on Sundays, YOU HAVE TO COME HERE! At first, when we arrived, we were able to nab some discount passes from one of the Wet Republic peeps out there, hey, 4th of July right?, Once we arrived we were checked and they made sure that no sort of drug was on us. They confiscated the cigars from some of the kids in from of us.
Once we were in we checked out the bar area and sat by there. The place was not hoppin yet, so we were in chill mode. Then some more people started to roll in and we relocated to the place of action....THE POOL!
The Dj started to play the music, and lets just say the place started booming from there. We had a pitcher of joy juice on hand, and was back in forth between the pool and the side. It was a hell of a work out peeps! Between the dancing, and yes, PLANKING!, we were going strong.
We were even put to work by one of the ladies at the pool. I call her mermaid chick. She always asked us to spead our legs, (no no, dont go there peeps), and she can swim under them. She did pretty good granted she almost took out some of our jewels with those leg kicks. Then of couse my other party peeps went with her request to carry her on their shoulders, which, their pool security didnt like, that liability crap, but anyways we did it three more times just to humor them and accomidate the mermaids request.
Thing were smooth and in the dance groove until someone aw our planking, and well, tried it himself. The only mistake was he thought he was aquaman and rammed into a girl. She didn't like it (well, he was fondling, mugging, and sitting on every chick he could find), but no one complained until he did it to the wrong one. What do you think the result was peep? Security was told, he was in the process of being tossed, and his crew went after the girls crew, one of their crew was cold cocked defending her friend, and Metro was part of the party.
After that entertainment, we continued to DANCE!, but then a few minutes later, it was closing time.
This is a great place to come. The music was booming as well as the peeps. YOU HAVE TO COME AND GET YOUR GROOVE SACK ON!

Better to get a cabana if you go here. The pool itself was nice except that it looked a bit murky, but the place was so packed when I went there was barely room to move around. I couldn't event make it to the pool because it was so packed. The music was great and the people were beautiful. It would be more enjoyable if you get a cabana or if there was more room to move around.

Don't remember much but from what I can recall, ladies just do a quick lap around the cabanas rockin' your sexy bikinis and in no time you will be inundated with free drinks and shots. The pool is deeper here in general than at Rehab so expect lots of splashing, beach ball action and the occasional accidental dunking of your drink in the water.
