Light is the best of the best new nightclubs on The Las Vegas Strip, in regards to staffing, technology, and overall experience. This Venue is a brilliant collaboration between Light Group and Cirque Du Soleil, literally putting beautiful artistry to music. One of the most important things that I believe will contribute to the success of this club, is its unbelievable location inside the Mandalay Bay, which was formally The Rum Jungle Restaurant and Night Club. Just steps away from the main entrance is the Valet for Mandalay Bay and The Hotel, giving their customers quick and easy access. And if you don't want to valet, you can park yourself in the multiple levels of free covered parking in the garage above the entrance. The Light is not terribly difficult to get into, as long as you follow the directions of the signs that are placed in various locations to let you know where to go for entry. After making it pass the two large doors of Light, you will find yourself going in one of two different directions, which is dependent upon you doing bottle service or just coming in to enjoy the bars and lounge areas. General Admission Patrons walk up an elaborate set of illuminated stairs with mirrored walls, that lead you to the fourth level of the club. There are two full service bars that run along the back wall on fourth and fifth levels. There are also free standing high top tables and lounge areas on both of the bar levels too. Bottle Service is the very best way to truly enjoy and take in all of the features of Light. After entering the doors, you are escorted down a hidden hallway with various points of entry to the different tables around the room. I will paint a picture of the club from the view and location of the DJ Booth. The DJ Booth is located just above center of the dance floor, surrounded by huge state of the art LED Screens, that start from the floor, all the way up and around the ceiling. The back wall of where the DJ Booth is a combination of stages for Cirque Du Soleil Performances and Visionary Genius of Interactive Lighting, controlled by the technicians from their booth on the fifth level. Randomly there are acrobatic Cirque Performers popping out from everywhere, sometimes suspended in the air, running up the back wall of the DJ, or simply doing a solo performance on one of the many small stages around the multiple levels of bottle service tables. Dance Floor Level, tables are in the middle of all of the action, with a set of stairs at each corner, and another at the center, with all of them taking you to the mezzanine. The Mezzanine Level, the most popular and sought after, best view of everything, and has the most security too. The third tier, still great tables, overlooking all of the action and much easier to move around. The fourth tier are above and to the sides of the second level, and are kind of their own little party within the party. The lobby level is where the general admission patrons mingle and drink, with an awesome view of the entire club, still being a part of the action. The fifth level of tables are much like a stadium style, can only be reached by walking up a set of stairs on either end, above everyone and seeing everything below, but away from everyone at the same time. The Technicians booth is in the center, where there is a Zip Line that is sometimes used by the guest DJ's to make their entrance or for a Cirque Performer. The Bathrooms are located on the sides of the two bars and always well staffed, for cleanliness and full of amenities. There is security throughout the club, especially in the table areas, and open areas to maintain the flow of the room. The cocktail waitresses are voluptuous and sexy, bussers are fast, security is attentive, dancers are hot, and the hosts are on top of their game every night. The Bottle Service presentations are super cool and over the top, always giving you a memorable experience. Light is the best club on the US West Coast!
