Las Vegas: Not quite show-it-all swim pools

It couldn’t be more descriptive, but the recently-opened pool at The Artisan Hotel in Vegas called Naked isn’t quite that. Actually, it allows guests, locals and tourists to swim wearing only bottoms.

The Artisan, a non-smoking, non-gambling boutique hotel about a mile from Las Vegas Boulevard, has just one of Sin City’s several topless pools for adult-only swimming. There’s also Bare, the pool at The Mirage on what is now aptly called the Las Vegas Strip.

Also on the Strip, Caesars Palace has the Venus, and in the Beach area at Mandalay Bay is the private Moorea. Additionally, Beach Club 25 is located on the 25th floor of the World Tower at the Stratosphere Hotel.
