The STRAT Hotel, Casino & SkyPod welcomes guests to celebrate the grand opening of Swim & Social, the property’s picturesque new destination to sip, swim and socialize.
Set to the elevated backdrop of the Las Vegas Strip, the event showcased small bites and cocktails from Swim & Social Café, as well as live entertainment and games.
Stephen Thayer, vice president and general manager of The STRAT Hotel, Casino & SkyPod, welcomed guests to the celebration, which included Councilmembers Oliva Diaz and Cedric Crear, among others. Thayer led the Las Vegas dignitaries in a celebratory ribbon-cutting ceremony, set in front of the main pool.
The celebration included a surprise “Splash Mob,” featuring a performance by Uzeyer Novruzov, a talented ladder acrobat from season 10 of America’s Got Talent. Novruzov initiated the “Splash Mob” routine by knocking a performer into the pool, after which a group of synchronized swimmers entertained guests.
A sampling of small dishes and cocktails from the destination’s full-service restaurant and bar, Swim & Social Café, included shrimp ceviche, chicken teriyaki skewers and ahi tuna tacos, as well as Peach Party, S&S Favorite and Blue Hawaiian cocktails.
The ultimate party band, Yacht & Roll, provided the soundtrack for the event, while games like cornhole, giant Jenga and Connect Four welcomed friendly competition and poolside socializing.
Now open, admission is complimentary for hotel guests and available to non-hotel guests for $15. Minors under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. More information is available on the website here, and more information about The STRAT is available at TheSTRAT.com.
