Plaza Rooftop Pool 4th of July Celebration

Plaza Hotel & Casino to host a 4th of July celebration at it’s rooftop pool with drink specials, buffet, live band and fireworks!

The fully renovated rooftop pool at the Plaza Hotel & Casino, which opened last July to rave reviews, will celebrate its one-year anniversary with a special Plaza Pool Nights Fourth of July party on Saturday, July 1, with live entertainment, drink specials, and a barbecue buffet. The festivities will culminate with a spectacular fireworks show lighting up the downtown skyline.

This summer, the Pool at the Plaza introduced Plaza Pool Nights, dance and swim parties held under the stars on Saturday nights. On Saturday, July 1, the Plaza Pool Nights party will be the biggest yet this season to celebrate the pool’s anniversary and upcoming Fourth of July holiday.

On July 1, there will be music throughout the day at the pool, and in the evening, guests will enjoy live entertainment from Flashbax, an 80’s tribute band.

Beginning at 7 p.m., the cocktail bar at the Pool at the Plaza will offer a holiday drink special. Guests can buy one get one free of the special Firework cocktail (comprised of Strawberry Daiquiri, Pina Colada Rum and Blueberry Lemonade Vodka), which is on the pool bar menu for $10. The pool bar will also offer a selection of frozen and specialty cocktails as well as beer and wine.

On the pool deck, there will be a special barbecue buffet with all-American favorites like baked beans, cornbread, watermelon, BBQ chicken, ribs, brisket, corn, roasted red potatoes, salad and apple pie. The buffet is all-you-can-eat for $25 per person.

At the end of the night, the Plaza will shoot live fireworks from multiple rooftop locations at approximately 10:45 p.m. The show will last approximately 4 minutes, and while the best views will be from the Plaza’s rooftop pool party, the fireworks will no doubt be seen in the sky for miles around.

Entry to Plaza Pool Nights, including the special July 1 event, is free. Guests must be 21 years of age or older.

In addition to its private (yet affordable) cabanas, the Pool at the Plaza has ample space to relax poolside. Building on last year’s renovation that created a “retro Palm Springs-meets classic downtown Las Vegas” inspired feel, the Pool at the Plaza further upgraded its resort style furnishings with new cocktail side tables, more wet deck lounge chairs to meet popular demand, and a dedicated dining area with new dining tables, chairs and umbrellas.

For those who want a bit more activity, the Pool at the Plaza also offers a tennis court and 12 Pickleball courts, making the Plaza the only hotel/casino in Las Vegas with so many dedicated courts for this fast growing sport that combines table tennis, badminton and tennis. Guests can rent paddles, racquets and balls for a nominal fee.

Summer of Caesars Fireworks

As part of Caesars Palace’s 50th Anniversary “Summer of Caesars” celebration, the iconic property pays homage to its colorful history of hosting amazing daredevil action with a night jump by the Red Bull Air Force skydiving team in front of the famed resort. The daring stunt is set to take place on Sunday, July 3 at 9 p.m. during the free Independence Day Weekend Block Party and will be followed by a colossal 13 ½ minute fireworks extravaganza set directly above the hotel’s newly-reimagined Julius Tower (weather permitting).

Kicking things off at the stage built over the iconic fountains at Caesars Palace at 8 pm will be a roster of live entertainment including beloved winner of ‘American Idol” season five, Taylor Hicks, cast members from Absinthe and the UNLV “Star of Nevada” Marching Band.

Caesars Palace has a rich history of hosting suspenseful, daredevil action that dates back to 1967 when Evel Knievel attempted to jump the resort’s towering row of fountains on his famous red, white and blue motorcycle – a feat that was successfully completed years later by his son Robbie Knievel in front of a national television audience in 1989. Robbie Knievel was the first to clear the fountains and will be on hand July 3 to witness the latest thrilling stunt at Caesars Palace.

Wearing illuminated wingsuits equipped with red, white and blue LED lights, the Red Bull Air Force will make their adrenaline-pumping jump, skillfully landing on a target on the famed Las Vegas Strip directly in front of Caesars Palace.

“We want to take this opportunity to honor America, celebrate our 50 years and thank everyone who has ever visited our property,” says Caesars Palace President Gary Selesner. “The festivities will be highlighted on the evening of Sunday, July 3 with a thrilling stunt honoring Caesars daredevil legacy, a fireworks extravaganza which will be among the largest displays Caesars has ever done, live music and a free public celebration in front of Caesars Palace.”

Highlights of Caesars Palace Independence Day Weekend festivities include:

  • OMNIA VIEWING PARTY – Joining in the Caesars Palace 50th Anniversary festivities, OMNIA Nightclub will open its doors early Sunday, July 3 as it hosts a firework viewing party on its iconic Terrace.  Offering the most breathtaking views of the Strip and a front row destination to view the show, the 21 and over party will feature $18 specialty Independence Day themed cocktails and sounds by resident DJ Mikey Francis. Locals and hotel guests with a valid room key will receive complimentary entry to the special event. Doors open at 8:30pm. Dress code: No shorts, sandals, or hats. For more information please visit omnianightclub.com.
  • MILITARY OFFER – In honor of Independence Day, all veterans and active duty military who verify their identities through ID.me and book a Las Vegas reservation on Caesars.com between June 30th and July 5th for stays on selected dates through 2016 will receive up to 20% off.
  • FREE PUBLIC BLOCK PARTY – The Roman Plaza and Spanish Steps directly in front of Caesars Palace will be transformed for the massive block party which will feature live music, signature cocktails, life size games, patriotic decorations, Serendipity 3 BBQ specials and more from noon to midnight beginning Friday, July 1 through Monday, July 4.
