Pool Parties

Posted: Updated:

WSVN -- Pools are to South Florida what fireplaces are to all those folks who battle wintry weather. We gotta have them to survive the scorching summer!

Abbey Larkin, Guest: "I don't know what we would do if we didn't have somewhere to swim and cool off."

Every Sunday you can take a dip into luxury at the Mandarin Oriental's pool and beach party in Brickell Key. This luxe party on their man-made beach is free and open to everyone.

Allie Spang, Mandarin Oriental: "We're set right on Biscayne Bay, you can see the Rickenbacker Causeway and the whole skyline of downtown Miami, so it's a beautiful view."

DJ's keep the party pumped. You keep active playing games like volleyball. When it gets steamy take a dip in the pool, then simply relax in a hammock or daybed.

Saskia De Jong, Guest: "I have no idea what I'm drinking, but it's delicious, reading my magazines just relaxing enjoying the people that are here."

Allie Spang: "We have a happy hour until 2 p.m., where all our signature cocktails are available for $8, and we have one featured cocktail available for $8 all day."

In Ft. Lauderdale, the W Hotel also hosts a free pool party every Sunday from noon until sunset.

Elliott Leonard, Manager, W Hotel: "A really chic environment, where bottles are popping, champagne everywhere."

This Sunday soiree takes place at their rooftop pool, overlooking the ocean. You can spend all day poolside or rent one of their VIP cabanas.

Elliott: "Entertainment is unbelievable. We bring DJ'S in from Miami, Ft. Lauderdale area."

If you'd rather pop open a beer and just chill, dock at Duffy's Sports Grill in North Miami Beach.

Max Marion, GM, Duffy's Sports Grill: "Bring your boat, bring your car, come take a dip in the pool, drink and have a great time."

Every Saturday and Sunday they open up their pool and great intracoastal views to locals.

Abbey Larkin: "You're right on the intracoastal you can watch the boats go by. It's very hot out. As soon as we got here we ordered drinks and jumped in the pool."

From 4 p.m. to close, all drinks are two for one and they have some great inexpensive food.

Max: "We have wings, chicken nachos, seared tuna appetizers, Churrasco steaks."

The place is massive, so you won't have a problem finding a place to hang out or watch your favorite sport.

Max: "We have 187 televisions. This is the largest sports grill in the state of Florida."

So, no more sneaking into your neighbor's pool, you've got some cool new spots for the weekend.

There are tons of other hotels who are having weekend pool parties.
