Influence, The POOL at The LINQ Hotel + Experience is celebrating the return of pool season with an intoxicating assortment of offerings for 2019. The adults-only pool has introduced a supersized cabana rental which can host up to 30 people, developed an al fresco Sunday brunch menu for guests to enjoy, and continues to offer complimentary admission to all patrons age 21 and up seven days a week.
An air-conditioned escape from the sweltering desert heat, The REQ Room features five flat-screen televisions, a pool table, a shuffle board table, a foosball table and Pop-A-Shot, and, for the first time ever, can be rented as a cabana. The indoor/outdoor space, which also offers exclusive access to a deck overlooking The LINQ Promenade, is available for rental seven days a week for $1,000 (plus tax and gratuity) and includes a bottle, mixers and a dedicated cocktail server and cabana host.
Influence is also the new daylife destination for Sunday brunch. The Strip oasis, known for its house-pressed juices, dynamic mixology program and on-location restaurant, The Taco Spot, will now offer a Sunday brunch. Featured menu items will include assorted specialty donuts, avocado toast, croissant sandwiches and breakfast burritos, as well as bottomless bloody marys (available from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.), micheladas and mimosas (all day) for $75, so thirsty patrons can indulge in the perfect #SundayFunday.
New in 2019 is the addition of #Skinny offerings to Influence’s cocktail menu. Specialty drinks include the Skinny Soda (Stoli vodka, Truly Lime Hard Seltzer, house-pressed lime juice, agave nectar and club soda), the Lime Spritzer (Belvedere vodka, Truly Lime Hard Seltzer, St-Germain Elderflower liqueur and club soda), the Strawberry Splash (Bacardi Dragon Berry rum, strawberrybubly and house-pressed lemon juice) and the Margarita (Casamigos Blanco tequila, limebubly, house-pressed limed juice and agave nectar).
Every Tuesday continues to be Two for Tuesday at Influence, where locals and industry pros receive two-for-one drinks with the presentation of a Nevada or industry identification card.
Influence provides a cooling escape with spectacular views of the High Roller Observation Wheel and The LINQ Promenade. The center-strip destination features a center bar lined with plasma televisions and a full array of signature cocktails, draught beer, frozen drinks and more.
Twenty-four cabana rooms line the pool, offering an exclusive patio area connecting the room directly to the pool deck. The patio area includes a plasma television, sectional seating and umbrellas for shade. As a cabana room guest, “wake-up calls” are available from the cabana staff where guests can have menu items delivered directly to them at a specified time. Ten cabanas are available for rent which include a personal electronic safe, plasma TV, USB port for phone/music player, reserved chaise lounges and a refrigerator. The main pool boasts a wet deck with 25 poolside daybeds available for rent, while the second pool is accessed from a standalone elevated deck with daybeds also available for rent.
