There are only three things that can help you beat the triple-digit heat during Arizona’s unforgiving summers: the pool, music, and some sort of alcohol-infused drink worth sipping. The Valley is home to a number of beautiful pools and poolside bars where you can cool down and drink up.

Wet Deck – W Hotel Scottsdale
The Wet Deck at the W Scottsdale is known to most as Arizona’s most extravagant day club experience. Dive in and get a taste of all the live entertainment this venue has to offer. The W in Old Town Scottsdale is the obviously named rooftop pool you go to when you’re looking to party and day drink until the sun goes down (and well into the early morning hours, if you so choose). This is not the place to go if you’re looking for a relaxing day by the pool with a book. Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, WET hosts public pool parties (with a cover for non-hotel goers) from noon-6pm, and again from 9pm-2am. Park yourself on a lounge chair or in a cabana, order a cocktail or two from Shade Lounge and soak it all in.
