Seven Must-See Metro Phoenix Pool Parties in April

Weekends at Hotel Valley Ho One of the few upsides of summer is the return of the Valley Ho's collection of upscale weekly events at its OH Pool Bar and Cabanas.

This year's edition once again offers its usual selection of swank music and libations in the shadow of the Midcentury Modern hotel. Rock-pop act Elvis Before Noon will once again perform as the band in residence from 3 to 6 p.m. during Happy Hour Fridays (though July 5) and the waitstaff serves select $6 cocktails, $4 beers, and $16 pails of bottled brews. The group's bassist, Mr. P-Body, will work the turntables poolside from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m. during Session Saturdays, which start this weekend and run until September. And City Sundays wrap up things with $6 signature cocktails inspired by eight cities from around the world.

As always, the public is welcome to attend the Friday and Sunday events at the pool, while Saturdays and select summer holiday weekends are limited to registered hotel guests only.
