Welcome to Las Vegas By Bill Schafer Publisher Las Vegas Gay Guide We’re so glad you’ve come to the most fabulous city in the world. We know you’ll enjoy yourself. With temperatures rapidly approaching the 100° mark, this – or premier issue – is focusing on the resort swimming pools around town. They vary greatly as to what amenities are offered and how much they charge for admission. Some are free (like The Pond at Green Valley Ranch) and others charge a fee. Some are over-21 only. A few are “European-style” where women can go topless. Some are a true luxury experience, with cabanas offering fruit trays, pastries, televisions, Internet connections, newspapers, frozen treats, refrigerators stocked with water and juice, and more.

Of course some charge more for men to enter than for women. If you’re a lesbian, that’s great news. Those listed in these pages are located in resorts with good to great policies on diversity. Let us know if you’re treated badly because you’re gay. (Publisher@LVGayGuide.com) We’ve provided telephone numbers and websites where available so you can check about admission and amenities and if the kids can go. Beyond the pools, you’ll find so many things to do in Las Vegas. Weather your interests lie in gambling, shopping, entertainment, clubbing, or nature, there’s something to do in Las Vegas from the moment you arrive until you depart. This is our premier issue of Las Vegas Gay Guide. You’ll find a bit of everything inside. Then go on our website and read future issues at the beginning of each month.

The website is in its infancy, too. We intend to make it a great resource for the Vegas visitor. We’ll have our back issues and the articles as archives so you can easily get all the information you’ll need for future trips to Las Vegas. We’ll soon start taking names for our email list. We promise not to fill your mailbox with endless messages (about one every two weeks) and vow never to sell the list to protect your privacy. This list will be used to remind you when a new issue is online, and occasionally to let you know about new shows, restaurant experiences, and important upcoming events to allow you to plan your next visit to Las Vegas. Enjoy your stay in Las Vegas. partake of all we have to offer. Drink and gamble responsibly. We want to see you return for more enjoyment soon.

Labor Day weekend sees opening of Encore Beach Club and Surrender Nightclub On Memorial Day Wynn Las Vegas partnered with nightlife impresario Sean Christie and renowned casino marketing veteran Bob Mancari to unveil an expansive entertainment complex which is expected to set a new standard in Las Vegas and beyond. The Encore Beach Club, Surrender Nightclub and a newly revamped SWITCH restaurant blend the daytime beach party, upscale restaurant and sexy nightclub into an experience that will transition guests from day to night. Encore Beach Club is a prime destination for the trendsetter seeking the quality party atmosphere usually found in European hot spots. Upon entering the 60,000 square foot venue, guests are treated to a lush oasis featuring 40foot palm trees surrounding three tiered pools. The deck offers ample seating provided by chaise lounges, couches and day beds featuring private safes. Guests preferring a cooler spot can choose to lounge on oversized lily pads resting in shallow water or dance under one of the shower poles. Encore Beach Club’s gaming pavilion beckons those looking to try their luck at blackjack or craps. A more private Encore Beach Club experience can be had at one of the 26 cabanas outfitted with refrigerators and flat screen televisions. The exclusivity and opulence of the eight two-story bungalows spanning 350 squarefeet will set Encore Beach Club apart from its

predecessors. Offering views of the Las Vegas Strip and of the pool itself, these VIP enclaves feature individual hot tubs, showers, lavish furnishings and a temperature-controlled cooling and heating system set to each guest’s preferences. Christie, who opened and operates Blush Boutique Nightclub at Wynn and Society Café at Encore, has created an entertainment platform to showcase chart-topping acts including worldrenowned electronic music artists Kaskade and Steve Aoki.

As day turns into night the party moves into Surrender Nightclub, trendsetting DJ Steve Aoki energizes the evenings as Friday night resident and music director. A prominent figure in the emerging electro-dance scene, Aoki takes the crowd to the next level with his dynamic live performance set. Surrender is a chic choice for those seeking an upscale evening soirée. This sensual 5,000 squarefoot nightclub opens up to the surrounding outdoor oasis as the seasons allow.

Visit the Las Vegas Arts District; and ‘First Friday’ street festival serve as a back-drop for this ongoing festival of art perusal and appreciation. Local bands perform throughout the evening, and the streets turn into canvasses for children (young and old) to decorate with chalk. First Friday is a stage for local galleries and Las Vegas’ vital downtown cultural scene. It’s a place where locals meet friends new and old, and rejoice in the preservation and innovation of an historical neighborhood. In this land of suburbs and strip malls, visitors come from near and far to people-watch, sample new restaurants and revel at area bars. Since it began in October of 2002, First Friday has only continued to grow. It is now considered the premier arts event in Las Vegas. From the shops and galleries on Charleston (the Arts Factory, S2, Main Gallery and more) to the new galleries on Main Street (Atomic Todd and others) to the spaces on Commerce St. (Commerce Street Studios), down to the whimsical offerings of The Funk House antique store, and the art galleries and vintage shops in the cottages on Colorado.

The Arts District is located in a historic neighborhood near downtown Las Vegas and is home to art galleries, charming shops, dealers in antique and vintage goods and a variety of restaurants and bars. Snick’s Place, a friendly gay bar, is located at 1402 S. Third Street in the Arts District. “First Friday� is a street festival held on the first Friday of each month. While many people love to walk the neighborhood, arts tour trolleys are provided which make rounds throughout the area (see the First Friday Map) and make pick ups every 15-20 minutes throughout the evening. And no matter how you decide to get around, you can always expect a diverse crowd, cool local art, live music, street performances and plenty of surprises! The air is light, the spirit festive and the drinks cold in Downtown, where, once a month the pedestrian-friendly streets transform into a huge block party during First Friday. Each celebration, the entertainment shifts and multiplies as ice sculptors, fire breathers and fortune tellers
