Rehab at the Hard Rock?

Okay, I admit it.  I am not "in" the cutting edge crowd.  I am having a MEGA milestone birthday in December, okay?  So, in Las Vegas this past weekend, and decided to stay off the strip at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.  My first time in Vegas, off the strip, mind you.  I wasn't quite sure what to expect.

First, the music was awsome, loved it.  It's a hip place, with a younger crowd.

LOVED the "Do Not Disturb" signs πŸ™‚  (Snagged one for my scrapbook).

Loved looking at Neal Preston's work. He traveled with Led Zepplin and photographed them, as well as some other famous rock musicians.  True grit, black and white film, darkroom work.  So admire this.

Cabanas for rent poolside:  $1,000 for the day, plus a minimum purchase of $1,000 in food and beverages. Would LOVE to rent one of these cabanas for the day, but not gonna happen on my budget πŸ™‚

This is the hotel pool, which is free, and towels were on EVERY SINGLE CHAIR by 9:00 a.m.  I took this photo at 8:30 a.m. by the time I came back at 9:30 a.m. every single one of these chairs had a towel on it.  I managed to snag a beach chair though. πŸ™  Not happy.

Welcome to the upstairs portion of the Rehab Pool, free this particular Saturday.  This  away from all of the really loud music (and action) geared toward the 20-something crowd which featured a DJ.  But it was still pretty loud.  Below the pool is a pool bar/restaurant, and those big clear circles in the pool provide a view to the crowd down below. πŸ™‚  Keepin' it clean…

The glass wall at the opposite end overlooks the hotel pool.

These are all of the cabanas available for rent at the Rehab pool. Very $$$$$$

Another view from the upstairs pool where you can see the Las Vegas Strip and a shaded area to get away from the sun, and a full service bar with cocktails and a delicious lunch menu.  I recommend the chicken teriyaki bowl (to share with someone you love).

The lifeguard at the pool.  I was REALLY hoping she didn't have to get her hair wet…

Downstairs at the main Rehab pool on Saturday amidst all of the chaos and craziness and LOUD music of being in your 20's in Las Vegas.  (Where was THIS place when I was in MY 20s????)

All I have to say is be young, have fun, and be safe πŸ™‚

Everyone looked great.

Lots of bootyshakin' goin' on for sure… πŸ™‚

There is even pool-side gambling at Rehab, after all this is Las Vegas πŸ™‚

I was glad I experienced Rehab at the Hard Rock for free.  On Sunday, the price was $30 for women and $50 for men.  Luckily, I was up early enough on Sunday to snag a beach chair at the free hotel pool, which really played my kind of music, and I was able to really get my feet wet πŸ™‚
