In a sign that decadence isn’t dead yet, the Encore Beach Club in Las Vegas is opening Saturday, a month earlier than the cushy 60,000-square-foot attraction was originally set to open.

A lush oasis with three tiered pools, the Beach Club is one of Sin City's largest and glitziest pool scenes. It offers 26 cabanas outfitted with refrigerators and flat-screen televisions. Eight bungalows, with private showers and lavish furnishings, open out onto the Las Vegas Strip.

Reserved seating starts from $150 for chaise longues to $1,000 for cabanas and $3,000 for a bungalow. Those prices can go even higher on weekends, holidays or special events. The cover charge varies; local residents get some free days.

The club will be open on weekends for the next month, then open full time next month.

Theme lineup when the club opens full time April 16:

SUNDAYS – "Daystar Sundays," featuring top disc jockeys.

MONDAYS – "Industry Beach" caters to the Las Vegas service industry crowd.

THURSDAYS – "Dip and Dance" is a weekly nighttime pool party, commencing on Cinco de Mayo.

FRIDAYS – "Recess Fridays" is a weekly series of original themed parties.

SATURDAYS – Live performances by headlining DJs and pop culture events.
