Light Nightclub Overview

There’s no arguing that there are plenty of lights in Las Vegas, but there is definitely one that outshines the rest – and I’m not talking about the Luxor’s vertical spotlight. This light is the product of an impressive collaboration of two Sin City powerhouses, and it is certainly the pinnacle of Las Vegas’ entertainment. Created through a meeting of minds between ever-creative Light Group and the remarkably acrobatic Cirque du Soleil theater company, Las Vegas’ most unique nightclub, Light, is a spot light amongst household lamps.

You may be wondering what a collaboration between The Light Group and Cirque du Soleil would mean for the Las Vegas nightlife, and really, it means everything. It revolutionizes the concept of the nightclub and certainly gives other establishments along the Las Vegas Strip something to think about. Taking residency at Mandalay Bay on the far end of Las Vegas Blvd, Light is far more than just a nightclub. It’s an experience that all travelers (and locals) of Sin City are quick to latch onto. Combining the intricacies of a Light Group-designed establishment with the acrobatic prowess of the Cirque du Soleil performers, Light is like nothing Las Vegas has ever seen before.

Picture yourself walking to a Cirque du Soleil show where there’s a DJ and a massive intricate light display all throughout. That, in a nutshell, is Light. The massive club space plays home to a high energy night club that is accented by The Light Groups’ gorgeous lighting arrangement and Cirque du Soleil performers that perform acrobatic feats right above your head. This isn’t some dinky space where artists utilize a minimal amount of space to try to amaze you. Light has an unbelievable high ceiling that allows for some of Cirque’s most prolific artists to show off their many talents. Whether performing just above your head or on many platforms.

Light is an ever changing experience due to the live acrobatics. Cirque du Soleil performers are sure to change up their act on a nightly basis so that no two visits are the same. As these impressive feats are being performed, resident and special guest DJs that include the likes of Skirllex and Sebastian Ingrosso will ensure that the dance floor is the true focus of Light. Though it may integrate new concepts, it is still a Las Vegas nightclub at its core, so any one patron can expect to find themselves pulled away from watching the Cirque performers to dance the night away on the dance floor. The energy at this hybrid club is constantly high, and sometimes it’s a little difficult to decide on what you want to do (dance or experience the impressiveness of Cirque), but either choice you make is the right one.

The club has enough entertainment value to be perfect for all walks of life, but those that spring for VIP access are bound to get a better experience out of the night than simple walk-in patrons. First, VIP access gets you to the front of the line, so you can bypass everyone that stands in your way. Second, you’ll find yourself escorted to one of the club’s premium VIP tables, where you’ll get first rate views of the club’s goings-on and the dance floor itself. As you’re taking in the many sights that Light has to offer, you’ll find you and your table on the receiving end of a premium bottle of liquor. VIP at Light is the all-around enjoyable experience that everyone should try at least once in their lives.

Great entertainment. Great company. Great atmosphere. Three things you can expect to find within this collaborative effort between The Light Group and Cirque du Soleil. Light is the ideal location for both individuals simply looking for a great nightclub and those looking for something with a little more zest. It may be on the far end of the Strip, but its well worth traveling from any other resort – even from any in Henderson.

    Best for Locals

    I live in Las Vegas and visit clubs regularly, this club by far the best and local friendly one in town. Hakkasan, XS or TAO group is not for locals, its just for those who spend 5K and up. Not to mention, going to Light club is going to a cirque de Soleil show for free, acrobats are awesome.
