    Labor Day Pool Parties

    Your perfect Labor Day: Slip into your slinky swimmers (and apply a little waterproof mascara), sidle up to a poolside bar and party to the cool grooves of a hot DJ. If this sounds about right to you, here are three good places for you to go on Monday:

    DOWNTOWN
    Where: The Standard Rooftop
    What to expect: Vegas-shipped DJs, Standard attitude and plenty of beautiful bods. And drinks. Lots of drinks.
    Details: Free before 2pm with RSVP. Parking, however, will cost you.

    HOLLYWOOD
    Where: The Roosevelt Hotel
    What to expect: Big name DJs (Colette, Jason Bentley, Zack Hill) and a big, cool crowd.
    Details: Free. Starts at noon. Going early is recommended.

    WESTWOOD
    Where: W Hotel
    What to expect: DJ Mr. Best, and a “swanky spin on the traditional backyard barbecue.”
    Details: Free. All ages. Starts at 10am.

    Or, Plan B: For those of you to whom the pool and drinks sound good but  not the sea of bikini-clad bodies, opt for a within-city-limits vacation. A reservation at a number of local hotels will grant you access to their guests-only pool scenes, and this weekend special rates abound.

    These favorites have pools and room availability:

    DOWNTOWN
    Hotel Figueroa, regular rate of $148 per night.

    BEVERLY HILLS
    The Avalon, special rate of $155 per night.

    SANTA MONICA
    The Viceroy, discounted to $275 per night.
