DayDream closed for the season on Sept. 27, 2015.
It happens all the time. You drift off and start daydreaming about something you'd rather be doing or someplace you'd rather be. We'll probably do it three or four times while writing this. Of course the place we're dreaming of being is aptly called Daydream and it's at the M Resort. Tucked away from the resort's main pool area, DayDream has everything you could ask from a pool club: a central pool, sofas and lounge chairs (chairs are first-come, first-serve -- be sure to get there early), and daybeds and cabanas with all the classic amenities.
DayDream's location away from the Strip and general spa sensibilities, in line with the rest of the M Resort, give it a very different vibe than the wild party scene you've come to expect from Las Vegas pool clubs. This is a mid-sized pool club and, though the music selections and DJs are just as great as those at the bigger clubs (in fact, they're often DJs at the Strip's big nightclubs and pool clubs), this scene isn't a barrage of bass upon your eardrums.
Attention to detail and little luxury flourishes are a big deal at M Resort, and the pool club is no exception. There's a strip of metal around the whole bar that somehow keeps itself frosty, which in turn keeps your beverages icy-cool. We're pretty sure it's magic. Wait, could that be what the M stands for in M Resort? Mind blown. But back to reality, DayDream has a totally different kind of vibe than most of those other pool clubs, but that's exactly what they're going for. If you're over the whole rowdy and crazy party scene but enjoy a little bit of energy poolside, you'll find this club to be one of the best.
This last point feels like an actual daydream, but it's totally real. Daydream's bar serves, in addition to your typical selection of liquor and cocktails, frozen drinks and SnoBar alcohol-infused ice cream. Yep. Alcoholic ice cream. And they even do something creative with it: The signature "Ultimate Root Beer Float" with Brandy Alexander ice cream, root beer and root beer vodka. Feel free to "scream" for that. Actually don't. Just ask politely. Then drink it while you fall into a magical daydream.
