    GN easily gets the top notch for Downtown pool scene, but with the renovations to the Plaza Pool and Citrus at DTG finding some fans, where would you rank the pools downtown?

    I haven’t been to pools other than the GN but from what I hear it’s The Nugget and everybody else...

    Are there any that cater to albinos? Or maybe one where I am fuzzed out if you try to look directly at me? (Black Mirror that beyotch!) Not all of us can look like Gaggles' wife.

    We are thinking of doing a night downtown. Thought I'd seen Downtown Grand's pool area on Pawn Stars and it looked nice. And more vacant.

    I really enjoy downtown grand’s pool. The cabanas are inexpensive and the pool doesn’t get overcrowded.

    I suppose it depends what you're looking for in a pool scene.

    GN has a very nice pool area. But it's usually packed with people. If you can get a lounger, it's going to be touching the other loungers on each side of it. It's pretty much a party, drinking, overcrowded experience. Pretty close to strip prices for food and drinks too.

    I like DTG much better. Even when it's "crowded" for DTG, it's not that crowded. Most of the seating is large, comfy, roomy couches with a table. And you can always find seating. The music is good and played at a comfortable volume. Food and drink prices are reasonable and the service is great.

    I haven't been to the Plaza pool.

    The Plaza has a great pool. A notch less "cool" design than GN pool but far less crowded. I would recommend it!

    I was at Downtown Grand a few years ago. They added infinity pool at the time of remodel. It's not as over the top at GN, but I felt like
    it was less crowded even on weekends. The patio space is pretty nice and it's pretty much sun all day, so limited shade and you can get roasted if your not careful. GN has limited sun exposure during the day. So your competing with other guests for sun light.

    Citrus has a few cabanas, when I stayed there last, I paid $250 for a Cabana on a Sunday. F&B was prices were reasonable, though they were still working out the menu.

    The Caesars salad I ate was mediocre, turkey wrap was good, and drinks were pretty reasonable for Vegas. The group I was with we had a couple of buckets of beer, two rounds of shots, and mix drinks. The vibe was much more subdued when I went, but now they are bringing in weekend DJ's to make it more a party atmosphere. https://www.downtowngrand.com/event/citrus-weekend-dj-lineup/

    Not as much eye candy either, so if that's important to you, GN wins in that category. So I would basically rank it this way.

    If party atmosphere, pool side gaming, decor, people (eye candy) and party vibe, I would rank GN at top.

    If F&B prices, amount of sunlight, crowd sizes are more important to you than I would say Citrus ranks higher.

    Everywhere else downtown just has a pool, not worth visiting. but I haven't been to Plaza since remodel, some people like it, but I still
    think based on images it falls short of GN and DTG pools.

    Plaza pool walk thru.

    Those pics from Golden Nugget look like my idea of hell. Way too crowded. But I realize some people enjoy that atmosphere.
