Cocktail Pools Design & Build

Our goal is to create a perfectly fitting pool for your space.

What is a Cocktail Pool?

A cocktail pool is a compact hybrid pool that combines features of both a spa and a small swimming pool, typically designed for relaxation, socializing, and cooling off.

A charming and compact aquatic oasis, a cocktail pool is designed for multifunctional purposes. Smaller than a conventional swimming pool but larger than a traditional spa, the cocktail pool strikes a perfect balance for those seeking relaxation and refreshment. It typically features a cozy and inviting atmosphere with strategically placed seating, jet systems for hydrotherapy, and even integrated heating options. This miniature aquatic retreat is ideal for both cooling off on a hot day and unwinding in a warm, spa-like environment, making it a versatile addition to any backyard or outdoor space, particularly for those with limited space who wish to combine the benefits of a spa and pool.

Design Features of Cocktail Pools

Efficient
We can design a beautiful pool that fits into your tight space.
Entertaining
Utilizing less room for the pool allows more room for other elements.
Modern
A small, rectangular pool can create a modern, retro vibe.
Simple
A pool doesn’t have to take over and be the focal point of your yard.

Cocktail Pool Design Options

Grecian Pool

Using Roman or Grecian styling can take any smaller pool and allow it to make a maximum statement. Upon entering the space, it immediately feels like you’re in a spa-like setting.

Spillover Pool

Designing a spillover spa accomplishes a few different things. First, it allows the spa and pool to function as one body of water. Secondly, it amplifies the sound of running water in your space.

Hill Country Pool

Kick back and relax. A simple, Hill Country cocktail pool is exactly the setting you’d want for a weekend getaway. Why not bring that getaway home and build it in your own backyard?

Desert Oasis Pool

When we think of a trip to Scottsdale, Sedona or the Red Rocks, it's a serene memory. Generally simple in design, a desert cocktail pool is the perfect complement to any backyard.

Outdoor Living Pool

Living outdoors in Texas is tricky and requires a pool for at least 6 months per year. Let’s drop a pool right in the middle so you can get outside, no matter the season.

Slide Pool

We all would prefer the look of a pool without a slide but we’d all prefer to swim in a pool that has one. Adding a slide to your cocktail pool not only is great for the kids, it’s great for you too.

Cocktail Pool Installation

1. Surface Prep

A pool is only as structurally sound as the way the initial shell is built.

2. Tailoring

We’ll design a pool that perfectly fits into the unique space your yard allows.

3. Crafting

Small surface area doesn’t mean low-quality materials….it may mean the opposite.

4. Walkthrough

We’ll start up the pool and pass off a chemically balanced pool.

Cocktail Pool Costs

While often an efficient use of space, a cocktail is an inefficient use of money. It bumps up against the minimum of every craft and - on a price per foot basis - is much higher than a larger pool might be. That said, we design and build every pool to our client’s specific needs and would love to lay out a proposal to help you get started.
