Where is AYU Vegas Located?
AYU Dayclub is at Resorts World Hotel and Casino, 3000 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109, situated on the very north end of the Las Vegas Strip across the street from Wynn and Encore complex. The pool party has a drop off right in front so if you are coming in a cab, ride share, or limo it’s a just short walk to the pool entrance. Parking in the resorts world garage is a bit of a walk to the venue, I like to park in the strip mall across Las Vegas Boulevard and walk over.
What Days is AYU Open?
Thursday Doors open at 11AM
Friday Doors open at 11 AM
Saturday Doors open 11 AM
Sunday Doors open at 11 AM

How much is it to get into AYU?
General Admission tickets vary from event to event, with bigger headliners like DJ Snake or Tiesto commanding higher price points (anywhere from $30-$50 for female tickets and $40-$100 for male tickets). Keep in mind that prices online are typically not the same as the price at the door; club management will always have the final say on what to charge if you don't buy an AYU Dayclub ticket before doors open.
$40 - $100+
$30 - $50+
If you don't want to deal with the hassle of sorting out entry into the venue on your own, we offer a seamless process and fantastic packages, including hosted VIP entry into the club by one of our VIP Hosts. Also, if you have a group and tickets are pricey, check out our cheap bottle service deals in Sin City!
AYU Vegas Guestlist vs. Presale Tickets: What's better?
Getting on the Guestlist is a FREE SERVICE to sign up for, but here's the catch: You have to get there early. In the case of a marquee headliner where online prices are sky-high, and guests are getting in for free on the AYU guestlist, you can be sure that the lines to get in on the list will be out the door. In this case, it is always advisable to arrive early before doors open to secure your spot at the head of the line.
Friday and Sunday
Free Entry before 1 AM check-in
Free Entry before 1 AM check-in
Free or Discounted Admission (depends on headliner – early arrival recommended)
Free Entry (early arrival recommended)
*Early arrival is required for Saturday events, especially with big headliners. Guestlist details are subject to capacity – if the club hits near capacity with the lines outside still full of people, the club may decide to start charging people early.
Suppose you're planning on attending a big event and can't get there early. In that case, you might want to investigate purchasing General Admission tickets in advance to avoid paying the inflated price at the door and to guarantee your entry. Pre-purchased tickets automatically guarantee access to the venue; the Guestlist does not!
Pro Tip: Club guestlists are geared more toward female patrons. All-female groups typically have a little more leeway in terms of arrival time on big days, while groups with males in their party might not have the same time luxury. Contact your Exploring Las Vegas host to find out what the best course of action is for your group.

AYU Bottle Packages and Pool Crawl
Ayu now offers bottle packages for Thursdays and Sundays to help fill the pool deck. Group are allowed up to eight guests an get a bottle service packages that includes 2 bottles of Liquor, 3 Red Bulls, and 3 Resorts World waters. The bottles to choose from are Grey Goose Vodka, Absolut Elyx Vodka, Avion Tequila, and Patron Tequila. Usually, groups will get a day bed, but can be upgrade based on demand or possibly with a handshake. We also offer a pool crawl for the pool parties on Fridays and Saturdays. The line-up will look something like this: start at The Flamingo Go Pool, stop #2 Wet Republic or Daylight Beach Club, and the final stop will be Élia Beach Club, The crawl is a great value for a very reasonable price you get entry to three of the world-famous Vegas Pool Parties, transportation to all the events, and complimentary light beers 🍻 and waters on the party bus! 🥳 These venues are subject to change.
Table Service Locations
While there really are no terrible tables in the venue, below is a list of insights into the different table areas and what to expect.
Most expensive tables at AYU, these L-shaped couches are closest to the DJ and come with security. All the DJ chasing ladies want to be up on stage, so if that is your thing, these pricey sections are for you.
Grand Bungalow (20 people)
Some of the best bungalow sections in all of sin city are the grand bungs, you will find the high rollers here. We have seen these sell on big artists days for as much as $25,000! 😱 They are roomy and have a shared private pool with the other bungalows inside you will find a sectional, a daybed, a couple of lounge chairs, a large flat screen, cabinet/bar for the bottle service. I like bungalow #4 the best as it’s closest to the stage and open on both the front and back, so it feels roomier than the others.
Bungalows (20 people)
A newer option for the second season and beyond, these are on level down from the grand cabanas. You will find a sectional, a daybed, a couple of lounge chairs, a large flat screen, cabinet/bar for the bottle service.
Balcony Bungalow (20 People)
The balcony bungalows are HUGE and can accommodate large groups. The minimum purchase gets you and 19 of your guests in, but you can easily have 30+ people up in these sections. The offer a great view a large sectional, a couple of daybeds, a couple of chairs, and plenty of ledge footage to hang out and view the crowd and artist below. Amenities include flat screen TV, misting system, charging station, secure storage, misting system, a great view of the stage, an L-shaped sectional, comfortable chairs, and 2-day beds
Balcony Cabana (12 People)
Some people like to look down from above to the stage and have self-contained parties. If that is your group, then the “upper cabanas” might work for you. The view is great, and you have plenty of room for the crew to move around, they main issue id there is almost no foot traffic upstairs except for the other cabanas and bungalows. Amenities include a TV, frig, couch, daybed, cabinet, safe, misting system, and charging station.
Lower Cabana Tier 1 (101-105) (12 People)
Only five of the prime Tier #1’s and the fetch a premium for big headliners and usually get locked up with deposits far in advance. Right in the main pool action and a great view of the stage, I get asked about these often. Amenities include a TV, frig, couch, some have a daybed or chairs, cabinet, safe, misting system, and charging station.
Lower Cabana Tier 2 (106-110) (12 People)
Tier #2 cabanas are solid they are in what I call “cabana row” where you mainly will mingle with other cabana customers. You can see the artist from most of these, they only issue we have seen is when the headliner comes on and moves the crowd toward the stage this cabana row clears out a bit. Amenities include a TV, frig, couch, daybed, cabinet, safe, misting system, and charging station.
Lower Cabana Tier 3 (111-115) (12 People)
The tier #3 cabanas are the same size and just as nice as tier #1 and #2 cabanas, then only drawback is they are all the way in back behind the small secondary pool. You can’t see the artist from these and when the headlining talent comes on this area can be sparse. Amenities include a TV, frig, couch, daybed, cabinet, safe, misting system, and charging station.
Dance Floor Couches (310-313) (8 People)
Only 2 of these and they are super prime, right in the center of the action between the DJ and dance floor with the main pool right behind you. They are in high demand and generally fetch cabana pricing to lock this section.
Couches (8 People)
There are 2 rows of couches that wrap around the main pool, they front row which usually requires a tip, and are pool side and have a great view to the artist. The 2nd row couches are behind the poolside row and have the flow of foot traffic right in front of them. For meeting people this can be advantageous.
Front Row Daybeds (6 People)
The front row daybeds are solid there are 2 rows of them and usually a tip will be require to the podium for front row. They are positioned right behind the beach couches and come complete with an umbrella and a safe.
Back Tier #2 Daybeds (6 People)
A nice option when the front day beds are just out of reach for the budget, a big plus is these beds are front row to the small secondary pool, the disadvantage is you can’t see the artist from most of them, and when the headliner comes on that back area tends to clear out. Amenities include a safe, pool side location, and an umbrella.
Patio Daybeds (801-803) (6 People)
If you’re on a budget and still want a home base, then the 801-803 “back wall” patio daybeds might be for your group. You cannot see the artist from there and not in the action. These daybeds can work well for a more “chill” day at the pool. Some amenities are a safe, umbrella, and extra seating
What exactly is table/bottle service?
Bottle service means that the customer purchases their alcohol by the bottle and not individual drinks at the bar. In Vegas, this equates to paying a premium price for bottles but includes a table inside the club, a personal server for your section, and VIP entry into the venue. Basic mixers are also complimentary with any table reservation – assorted juices and soda and garnishes like lemons and limes. Essentially you agree to spend a certain amount of dollars to rent the space for the night.
What is a "minimum"? Are Bottles Extra?
The dayclubs and nightclubs in Vegas often operate on a minimum spend requirement (or "min," for short) system for their table reservations. The customer must either reach or exceed the amount set for their minimum spend. While the table is not charged separately, the better the location, the higher the minimum spend requirement. To reach this minimum requirement, the customer can order anything from the beverage menu (bottled alcohol, cases of beer, bottled water, Red Bulls, etc., all count toward your minimum requirement).
Group size could also be a factor in raising your minimum spend. The larger your group, the more accommodations the venue has to make to provide the same VIP experience to its customers. For example, a party of 15-20 people will require a larger space than the typical customer and require more staff service; thus, their minimum would be much higher than a customer coming in with five people.
Is bottle service worth it?
Yes, absolutely, and without a doubt! It is the ultimate clubbing experience. While venturing onto the dance floor and exploring the venue are memorable experiences on their own, nothing is quite like being able to return to your own area, away from the crowd, and enjoy the artists' stunning performances. If your budget allows for it, I highly suggest booking Bottle Service. If you are a group of guys trying to pull girls or vice versa, tables are the 🔑 to help that process.
How many bottles do you get with bottle service?
As many as you can fit into your minimum. Bottle prices start at $650 and vary in price depending on whether you want a specific type of alcohol or a larger bottle. For example, suppose you have a $2,000 minimum and don't want to go over the minimum. In that case, you could theoretically get about three bottles (assuming you order the $650 ones) and fill the remaining minimum with small orders of beer/bottled water/Red Bulls/etc. Let your host know in advance, and we will coordinate with your server depending on your preference!
What is the tip for bottle service?
What you actually want to know is, "How much does bottle service really cost after fees?" Assuming you have a $3000 minimum booked (and don't go over that total), here's how the final bill would break down:
$3000 (Min Spend)
$283.28 (Nevada sales tax is 8.375% on the Minimum plus Venue Fee)
How do I make a reservation, and can I choose my section?
We make reservations simple - fill out a form, and one of our VIP Hosts will be in touch shortly to go over your options. The club's management determines where to seat each confirmed table reservation. We call this "plotting the room." Once again, the higher your minimum, the better the location. We can request and promise specific table locations based on customer requests and podium tips. We call podium tips "Handshakes" in Sin City. Here's a couple of things that can help us deliver on our promises:
Arrive on time! We can secure your preferred table, but we cannot ask the venue to hold it the entire day, waiting for you to show up.
Agree to the recommended minimum for your preferred location. If you want a dance floor table, we can make that happen, provided you agree to the required minimum spend it takes to book it.
Plan on tipping for a specific table or section
How do I get my guests in if they arrive late?
Ideally, you want to have the whole group together when you walk to your table. However, we understand that sometimes life (or at least Vegas party life) gets in the way. Suppose your table has already entered and is sitting; in that case, the person joining you can go up to the host standing at the table reservation line and give your table number plus the name the table is booked under (you can find out your table number by asking your server or security staff if you are unsure).
How do I order a bottle presentation?
You must have a significant reservation booked (usually around $2000 or more) and purchase a bottle of champagne to qualify for the presentation. Let your VIP Host know, and one of us will be happy to communicate this request to your server. On some occasions, for a birthday or special event, a bottle service waitress might bring a display out for much less, just ask your server.
Las Vegas Promoter Girl Guy Host; what is that?
Let's say you are a group of guys who want to buy bottle service. A girl guy's (at AYU, they are called VIP Liaisons) job is to approach your table and ask if you would like him to round up some girls to help fill out your table…for a tip (we call that "handshakes" in the industry). He then does the legwork of recruiting girls around the venue to introduce them to your table. The girls are happy they get to join a table, your group is happy that there are girls at your table, and the girl guy walks away happy with a handshake. Everybody wins!
But before you employ any venue's girl guy, be sure to ask your Exploring Las Vegas VIP Host (like me) first. We will have plenty of female guests in town on any given weekend and will most likely know a few at this particular venue that we can invite to your table. If your group and the girls don't mesh for whatever reason, we can always ask the girl guy to try their hand at it.
Find out more about girl guys. We also offer atmosphere models for a group of guys who just want some pretty Vegas party girls to hang out with at the table and keep them entertained. A good rule of thumb is $100 an hour per girl for a 4-hour minimum.
How much are drinks at AYU Dayclub?
Mixed drinks and cocktails start at $20, shots $15, and beer and wine around $14. Vegas is not a cheap place to party.

Zouk Group Security
Before entry, all guests are required to turn out their pockets (for ladies, they will look in your purse), submit to a metal detector test, and make sure everyone entering is not bringing in anything dangerous. It's equivalent to going through the TSA line at the airport. This applies to all guests, whether you are going in with a table or General Admission.
Pro Tip: If you purchased a table and some unwanted people wander in by accident, it is always best to have the security staff ask them to leave instead of doing it yourself to avoid potential altercations. In the event of a confrontation between guests, both parties may likely be asked to leave. Security has the final say on such matters.
Here are some things that you will be either asked to throw away or go back to your room to deposit before coming back:
Vapes – while weed dispensaries are extremely popular and vaping is in vogue, most venues will not allow vapes inside their premises and will ask you to leave it in your room or at the very least throw away the cartridge inside, even if it isn't a CBD cartridge.
Camera equipment – the only recording equipment you are allowed to bring is the one on your phone. Digital cameras, selfie sticks, et al., are not allowed into the venue.
Prescription medication (or anything resembling pills) – if you need a specific type of prescription medication while inside the venue, you will have to bring the prescription and explain what the medicine is for; otherwise, expect to get pulled to the side.
Packs of gum – this only applies to day clubs, which tend to be a lot stricter about checking everything that goes into the venue, but guests have been known to try and sneak drugs inside packs of gum to get them into the venue, so expect to have your gum taken away at the door.
Oversized bags – anything larger than a lady's clutch will be denied into the venue. This applies to most backpacks, gym bags, totes, etc. While most hotels can hold onto your luggage at the bell desk
Exploring Las Vegas Final Word
Las Vegas provides a lot of choices when it comes to dayclubs and pool parties, but there are always a few that is set apart from the rest. AYU Dayclub is a perfect example. It's designed to make you feel like you've escaped to a picturesque island in Southeast Asia complete with megastar DJs, incredible music, fantastic scenery, a tropical paradise vibe, and all the sun and water you will need in one day.
Ok, I get it so you want to skinny on how I really feel, the pool is decent, they could have added way more small pools for the cabanas and made the venue way better. When my customers spend $5-$15K on a cabana or bungalow they want their own pool these days. One venue that nailed it was Kaos at the Palms, that venue had many small pools for the cabanas, even on the mezzanine level has private pools for the cabanas up there. It’s a shame they didn’t make it past a season, they overspent on artists and went bust, but the feedback from my customers was very positive. Think Marquee Dayclub with the row of grand cabanas, or Wet Republic with the pool bungalows and grand cabanas. Even the Tao Group added a bunch of cabanas with pools with the new remodel of Tao Beach. The only EDM pool that crushes and doesn’t have a lot of private pools for the cabanas is Encore Beach Club, but the way they designed the layout, there is vibe that is tough to find in Vegas. The verdict is still out, they will do just fine when they have big headliners, but when they don’t have big talent the competition in town seems to have an edge. I also feel they would be stronger and have more females with an internal promotions team, just about every time I book a table there, it seems like there is a shortage of ladies.
