There are those who like to party, while there are others who want to just lay back and chill. Azure offers a fine balance of both.
Located at the Palazzo Las Vegas, Azure is modeled after the Côte d'Azur, better known as the French Riviera, a popular beach destination. Featuring beautiful shades of blue throughout, the ambiance at Azure immediately puts you at ease. The atmosphere has the elegance of a spa, but the live DJ-spun music makes you want to get up and groove. Enjoy the sounds of a DJ and get your electronic dance on. While the vibe is upbeat, it's not overdone. We like to call this partying with class.
When you're ready to cool off from all the dancing, enjoy one of two pools. While you're in here, overcome your shyness and make new friends by bouncing around a beach ball.
While you're here, you definitely want to sip in style: If you're ready to splurge, we recommend a bottle of Moët & Chandon. The sweet, sparkling champagne tastes even more amazing with strawberries and squeezes of lemon and lime. Specialty cocktails like Costa Azura bring your taste buds to the beach: This blend includes coconut Cruzan, Bombay Sapphire, fresh lemon, orange and pineapple juice.
If you're hungry, Azure offers poolside eats from Wolfgang Puck's Solaro restaurant. Appetizers include everything from chilled shrimp cocktail and grilled steak satays to refreshing salads. In addition to a flavorful pizza selection, entrée items include grilled chicken panini, fish tacos and grilled prime hamburger with Vermont white cheddar and red onion marmalade aioli, to name a few. Sample the sushi and sashimi platter, or of course, you can never go wrong with a fruit platter of juicy watermelon, pineapple, orange and melon slices.
Each of the 11 air-conditioned cabana come equipped with a refrigerator stocked with chilled towels and water. Other amenities include a flat-screen TV and an iPad. While Azure feels classier than most pool clubs, the teal and neutral colors give it a fun, contemporary edge. If you're ready to soak some rays, each cabana features two lounge chairs right outside the entry. Soak up the sun as the refreshing Evian misters lightly splash over your face and body. Also available for rent, the daybeds are secluded enough to give you privacy, but don’t take you away from all the action.
While you're far from the French Riviera, everything about Azure makes it easy to imagine you're right there. And for that, we want to say merci.
