The oppressive rays of the desert sun are no match for the towering palm trees and shaded cabanas that surround the Blu Pool at Bally's Las Vegas. As sunbathers cool off with chilly cocktails or float around the heated swimming pool, a rotating lineup of DJs orchestrates live sets throughout the day. Nestled behind rows of poolside chairs, a row of rentable green cabanas enshrouds guests in a private space replete with a television, refrigerator, and an array of amenities including misters and a complimentary bottle of liquor. Servers dole out icy cold soft and hard drinks along with bar fare that should be liberally coated in nature's sunscreen: ketchup.
