Swim-Up Restaurants and Bars Around the World

Swimmers don’t have to leave the pool to sip their drinks and savor delicious bites at these pools

The Tropicana's pool offers a refreshing respite from the Las Vegas dessert. Swimmers can sip cocktails and play Blackjack without leaving the pool.

When lounging by the pool with a colorful cocktail adorned with an umbrella just isn’t enough, dive in, or rather, swim up, to these pool retreats.

No more drying off to dive into nachos or suspending a swim to sample sushi. From Mexico to Maui, these swim-up restaurants and bars offer food and drink not just poolside, but from the comfort of being submerged in the pool as well.

While the concept of swim-up bars is not new, these hotels have taken the swim-up concept further, with full meals served atop in-pool tables and chairs and rounds of blackjack dealt to gamblers escaping the sizzling Las Vegas strip.

The Daily Meal presents a collection of cool pools where swimmers can swim-up to savory eats and sip delightful drinks all while remaining in the pool.
