Summer may be winding down, but that’s no excuse to put away your bathing suit just yet. Get in some pool time at one of these swanky parties:

The Beach at Dream Downtown
355 W. 16th St., 212-229-2559
Mondays, 3-9 p.m.

Your Monday doesn’t have to suck: Extend the weekend one more day at this hotel rooftop pool party, which features DJ’ed tunes and specialty popsicles.

Sunday Day Parties at Gansevoort Park
420 Park Avenue South, 212-317-2900
Sundays, 6-10 p.m.

While the crowds take to the Gansevoort Meatpacking, you can enjoy a bit more tranquility at the hotel’s Park Avenue outpost. Attendees can access the entire tri-level rooftop complex, sip spiked slushies and make a splash in the rooftop pool (which is normally closed to non-hotel guests) at the weekly parties.

Thompson Hotel #LESpool Parties
190 Allen St.
Thursdays, 2-9 p.m.

Not so much a pool party as a “setting where like-minded creative, fashion and industry leaders can cool off,” guests at this private affair need a password to enter. Once past the velvet rope, attendees can enjoy guest DJs, an art exhibit and food from Williamsburg Pizza. Models with their comp card can get in without the password, but if that’s not you, good luck!

Grace Hotel DIP Aqua Bar pool parties
125 W. 45th St., 212-354-2323
Saturdays, 10 p.m.-3 a.m.

The pool might be indoors, but that doesn’t make the scene any less hot. The Grace boasts the only swim-up bar in the city — just remember to take your iPhone out of your trunks, OK? If you forget your suit, you can buy one at the front desk.

Le Bain at The Standard Hotel
848 Washington St., 212-645-4646
Every weekend night, year round

At this High Line hot spot, you can relax in the pool, on pink waterbeds or on lawn chairs that sit on the faux grass. Hit the creperie (!) for a post-swim snack.

JIMMY at the James NY
15 Thompson St., 212-201-9118
Saturdays and Sundays, 3-9 p.m.

The weekend parties at the SoHo hotel boast DJs, cocktails and food by David Burke.
