Special celebrity DJs appear on select dates.
Opened last summer, Daylight Beach Club at Mandalay Bay has become a bright name in daylife in Las Vegas.
This pool club, which can accommodate up to 5,000 people, takes afternoon partying to a higher level. Daylight is inspired by the sophisticated scene in Ibiza, complete with fine cuisine and innovative technology.
Daylight has taken advantage of its premiere location at one of Vegas' best pool areas to create a tropical paradise setting. A 4,400-square-foot pool with three wet decks lies at the heart of Daylight's sprawling open-air space. Surrounding the pool are 70 daybeds and 25 cabanas and bungalows. Among the accents are authentic Mexican wall sconces, rustic planters and decorative ironwork.
For the 2014 season, Daylight has undergone an expansion. This year brings two new VIP pools (a 448-square-foot pool to serve the north-side cabanas and a 245-square-foot pool for the southwest-side cabanas) and more lush greenery.
Daylight is also home to a 1,500-square-foot stage that has a rockin' sound system and can produce state-of-the-art lighting effects. The stage is framed by six huge LED screens. Yeah, we know watching digital screens outside might seem like a visual impossibility, but the ones at Daylight actually work. You'll see world-renowned DJs from the electronic music industry here -- including Skrillex, Alesso, Sebastian Ingrosso, Axwell, Baauer and Nicky Romero, among others.
On select Sunday nights throughout summer, the weekly concert series Eclipse at Night at Daylight is showcased. Starting at 10 p.m. and running until 3 a.m., you can be immersed in a night of music, dancing and special effects in this unique beach club-meets-nightclub atmosphere. Imagine the best open-air concert you've been to and then stage it around a lush pool and you have just a hint of what Eclipse is.
Hungry and thirsty pool party goers will find an extensive food and beverage menu at Daylight. Among the chic cocktails are The Clooney, The Baja and the Daylight White Sangria. Culinary choices include maki rolls, cucumber rolls and tuna sashimi.
