Daylight Beach Club sits behind Mandalay Bay. This sophisticated poolside retreat transports you to a celebration in the tropics as you dance alongside thousands of party goers at this desert, beach party. With the party starting mid-day and extending past 5:00 p.m., Daylight is the perfect mixture of sound, sun and fun.
Cabanas, Bungalows and Daybeds will keep you and your group cozy around the pool or jump in and relax the day away on a blow-up float while simultaneously, the tunes on a long list of internationally known DJ's and performers bless the open-air sound system.
Monthly on Thursday evenings, Daylight evolves into Eclipse; a high-energy, fully immersive pool party.
Visit on Sundays to experience their LIT 🔥 Hip Hop party by day and sometimes on Sunday Monthly in the Evening, the Sundown Sessions Deep House Party is when Daylight's festival vibe kick's in!
Hit up your Surreal Host for the latest on events as they are continually changing.
Just a few things about me, so you know I'm credible. I started in this business as a front door host in 2000, and 20 years later, I worked my way up to become a major player in the nightlife industry.
While I still have ownership in a club in Chicago and own a large Chicago-based Halloween and New Year's Event Company, my home has been in Las Vegas since February 2013 when The Hakkasan Group moved me to the City to be their promotions manager for both Wet Republic and Hakkasan.
Nearly one year into my Vegas Adventure, I had enough customers to start my own independent hosting company – Surreal LLC.
Independent hosting is a sexy, but very serious business, especially in Las Vegas. You can't just be any person off the street and hope to work with these nightclubs; you need a gaming license, you have to pass an FBI background check, go through a lot of bureaucracy and own a legit company (State LLC) to do business with them.
You also have to have the pull, the right contacts, and relationships built on trust in order to work a deal.
I do well in this business because my company is reputable, I exceed my customer's expectations, and most importantly, I have the proper licensing. I am licensed by the Nevada Gaming Commission. Click on the links to my Nevada gaming licenses: Download the report and lookup Surreal LLC.
A few words of advice, before you book any Bottle Service, please make sure you are working with a licensed company like mine and someone who knows what they’re doing and who will go above and beyond to make your experience an amazing one! Trust me when I say, I know how to throw a great party.
I live and breathe this business 24/7; it’s my passion! Understand, we are working for you and not the clubs. With my years of event and clubbing experience, and hundreds of connections, your Vegas Vacation will be better than anything you ever imagined.
In my Ultimate VIP Guide to Daylight Vegas Bottle Service, I provide you with all the details you need to know if you're looking to purchase a table. My contact information: 773-459-8133; firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can click the button and fill out a form, and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Location & Hours of Operation
The pool parties are on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
On Thursdays and Sundays, it's open from 12:00 Noon – 6:00 p.m.
On Fridays and Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Daylight is located behind Mandalay Bay. The physical address is 3950 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89119.
A colossal tip: When you arrive, do not get dropped off at the Main Valet, it’s a mile-long walk to the pool. Make sure your ride drops you off at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center drop-off. This is near the Four Seasons Hotel entrance; the pool entrance will be in that parking lot.
In the front, you will find the Bottle Service and VIP Entry on the right, and the guest list and tickets will be on your left.
Swim attire only! They are dead serious about this! We have sent many customers to the Shoppes at Mandalay Place or back to their rooms to get the proper apparel.
Anyone wearing chains, baggy clothing, ripped or cut-off clothing, see-through clothing and clothing with studs and hooks, cargo shorts, khaki shorts, jerseys, pants, undergarments and any athletic gear will NOT be allowed in. Sunglasses and hats are permitted. Ladies, you will need cover-ups for your swimsuits and bikinis to go to and from the pool.
Note: They do not allow bags unless you have a Bungalow or a Cabana. They will make you check your bag at the front, and if you have an athletic jersey, they will make you remove that and check that as well. There are no exceptions here, so please no jerseys and no bags.
Nothing like a sweet frozen Margarita on a steamy, hot 100-degree day. For that, you will be looking at $18 for a 16oz, $38 for a 32oz, and $95 for a pitcher. Beers will cost in the $10 range, and regular drinks will be your Vegas pools standard @ $12-$15.
The Vibe and Artists
Daylight has one of the better Thursday parties in the City. Relatively speaking, Thursday's pool parties are not that great in Vegas. The music on Thursdays and Fridays will be what we call open-format, which is a mix of Hip Hop, EDM, and Top 40. Saturday's the party vibe will be based on the DJ did book.
If Rick Ross is in town, you can expect more of a Hip-Hop Party. If Duke Dumont is the talent, then it's going to be more of a deep house party. Sunday, they have a popular Hip-Hop Party called LIT Sundays, and for lack of a better term, it's pretty lit 🔥.
Review the lineup below for the weekend you are coming to town, just enter the dates and you will be able to see who's spinning. Some of Daylight's big hitters are Rick Ross, Morgan Page, Ookay, Saweetie, 3Lau, T-Pian, Bass Jackers, and Duke Dumont and mid-level resident talent like SNBRN, Jeezy, Too Short, D-Nice, Kid Funk, and more.
One more thing, the crowd overall is very diverse – it’s a mix of people, with different nationalities and backgrounds, from all over the world. In other words, you can definitely find what you're looking for at this pool party.
In other words, you can definitely find what you're looking for at this pool party.
Ladies are free Thursday and Sunday 12:00 Noon – 3:00 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Complimentary drinks for Ladies on Thursday and Sunday 12:00 Noon – 2:00 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
For guys, typically it's free Thursday, Friday and Sunday. On Saturday, there might be a cover. Even on event days with a prominent artist or DJ, they will have a guest list; ladies are free and guys reduced with an even ratio for a couple of hours.
Generally, daylight doesn't seem to have an even ratio rule, except for holiday weekends and special events.
Tickets are not usually necessary for this venue; the only exception would be a large artist or DJ on a holiday weekend or potentially a busy Saturday. See the guest list option above or the table option below.
Note: There is no place to sit inside except along the pool ledge. Bottle Service will get you a place to congregate and rest your feet. We recommend putting your ticket money and what you will spend on drinks towards a reasonably-priced table.
Daylight Group Security
They have stringent security right behind the ropes at check-in. Security personal with a metal detector will wand you.
Big Tip: You must be 21 to enter and have a valid form of ID; pictures on your phone are not accepted and typically neither are papers. If you are not from the United States and have a foreign ID, you will be required to show your passport, so please bring your passport or you'll have to go back to your room.
If you have any of the following items, you'll be asked to throw them away or leave and put them back in your room.
-Vapes (Casinos are Federal Law, and Weed is Illegal)
-Selfie Sticks and GoPros
-Outside food and beverages
-No personal floats
-Anything that can resemble a prescription pill, if you have to have them, bring your prescription with you.
-Usually, they will take away your gum.
-Common sense dictates that narcotics are not allowed and will result in an immediate ban from the property.
Think TSA, but stricter!
Regarding bags, they will be searched and they are only allowed for Cabana and Bungalow guests. Everyone else will have to put them in the bag check at the front, and this will hold up the entire entry process. We strongly suggest that you do not bring bags or backpacks.
We strongly suggest that you do not bring bags or backpacks.
What is Bottle Service?
By definition, Bottle Service means purchasing alcohol by the bottle instead of buying a drink.
American clubs, especially in Las Vegas, are synonymous with "Poppin Bottles." You will be paying a premium for a bottle to reserve a section in the Club, but it includes a personal server, VIP entry into the Dayclub, and usually an assortment of standard mixers such as cranberry juice, soda, tonic, orange juice, pineapple juice, and soft drinks.
Red Bulls and bottled water are available for an upcharge. The cost of a bottle is the same as its nighttime brother.
What's a Minimum Spend?
The minimum spend is the amount you agree to spend in advance on alcohol to get a table or real estate in the Dayclub. In Vegas, we call the minimum spend "the min." The better tables will have a higher minimum spend, and on bigger DJ days, you can expect a higher "min." Here are some typical prices depending on the artist for the day:
Typical Minimum spends
The food and beverage minimums will look like this:
Thursday, Friday, Sunday
Daybeds $250-$500 Min
Party Pits $500-$1000 Min
Cabanas $1500-$2000 Min
Grand Cabanas $1500-$2000 Min
Bungalows $2500-$5000 Min
Daybeds $500-$1000 Min
Party Pits $1000-$1500 Min
Cabanas $2000-$2500 Min
Grand Cabanas $2500-$3000 Min
Bungalow $5000-$7500 Min
Daybed = 10 people Cabana/Grand Cabana = 20 people Bungalow = 30 people.
Holiday weekends and special events might be higher. One thing to note is that you can bring the minimum down a bit, get express entry, and potentially get a better location with a handshake to the podium. We will talk more about handshakes below.
Bottle Service definitely has its perks. VIP entry to a personalized server and security for your section can make your big day out extra special. We walk you pass any lines with expedited entry.
Below are Table options. Click on the option you want a quote for or scroll up to our 3D clickable Map section for a quote to choose your area.
BUNGALOWS / CABANAS
The Bungalows and Cabanas are a Vegas-must for the pool!
All luxury cabanas come equipped with a TV, volume control, misters, a fan, a safe, and a private lounge area.
Bungalows 20-30 ppl
There are only 2 of these to the right and the left of the DJ, and they are awesome! Not only are they enormous compared to a standard Cabana, but they have a private hot tub and they overlook the dance floor like you own the place. We've had some fantastic parties in the Bungalows. Just let us know if you'd like us to secure one.
Grands Cabanas 15-20 ppl
All of the Cabanas are the same size; the advantage for a Grand Cabana is a shared pool in front.
The biggest spenders are usually in Grand Cabanas #1 to #4, and that is where you will find the prettiest ladies. The Host Team calls this Owner’s Row. If you are interested, we would be happy to book one for you.
Cabanas 15-20 ppl
There are about 6 regulars Cabanas along the back row, and Cabanas #21 and #22 have a pool in front of you. These are the regular Cabanas and are a little less pricey than the Grand Cabanas, however, they all have the same amenities. Some of the features are a TV, a fan, a daybed in front, and plenty of room to move around.
Party Pits 10-12 ppl
The Party Pits are some of our favorite tables in Vegas. They are large and in the action. On top of that, they're not that expensive. They also have umbrellas, but if it's windy, they will not put them up. There are two options here you have the Party Pits around the pool and the Party Pits that face the DJ on the dance floor.
Day Beds 8-10 ppl
The Entry-Level Tables are the daybeds and they are perfect for smaller groups, couples or a group of girls. The beds are placed in front of the Cabanas and offer a nice amount of space to hang out. Also, the price is reasonable compared to other spots in town. So, if your budget is tight or you want to get a package deal, this Daybed is a great option.
How Do I Calculate My Bill?
Let's do the math:
$1500 (min) + $125.63 (8.375% City Tax) + $105 (7% Venue Fee) + $300 (20% to the server) = $2030.65.
Total Bill Calculator for Daylight Bottle Service
This does not include any "shake" to the podium for location, express entry, specific table, etc. FYI, a "shake" can also help with a lower minimum spend, express entry, and a better table location. This option is not always available.
When someone refers to the "shake," that means they tip on top of your table minimum and the tip, tax, and venue fee that you will be paying. (The "shake" or "handshake" to the podium goes into the host's tip pool).
In many instances, there is an opportunity to get lower-than-posted-pricing with what's called a "handshake" in Las Vegas; basically, it is a gratuity to the podium for a lower minimum and a potential upgraded location.
Sometimes a podium tip is required for a particular table or even to get a location on certain days. There are some higher tiers when a large hip hop artist is in town, and it's a holiday or fight weekend.
To assist you in your booking, we've included an interactive 3D map where you are just able to click on the section you desire and submit a form.
Prices fluctuate based on demand, which is why we provide custom quotes because we can usually work a deal for a better table! We also included the Table Map with the table numbers, which makes things easier to discuss.
The Best Tables and the Best Value
There is no doubt that Bungalows 1 and 2 are fantastic tables if you can afford them; it’s like having a condo at the pool party. Not only is there a ton of space, but you have a private pool and use of the private bathroom behind the DJ booth.
We also really enjoy the Grand Cabana since you have a pool to bring girls up to or vice versa. But for the money, the Party Pits are some of the best deals in Vegas.; they’re big, comfortable, inexpensive and right in the action.
Bottle Service Deals and Packages
We have some fantastic packages for straight Bottle Service, or you can bundle it with limos or limos and a brunch.
Daylight Poolside Couch $1850 all-in for 3 Bottles of 50 Blue Vodka, 2 1-liters and a 750 ml.
Daylight Cabana $2650 all-in for 4 Bottles of 50 Blue Vodka
**All-in means all tips and taxes are included in the price.
As a point of reference, 2 Premiums retail for approximately $1700 all-in so our package deals are great! If you do multiple things throughout a weekend and you book multiple venues with us, we can work on a custom package deal.
Daylight Bottle Service Menu for 2021
A Bottle starts at $495 for 50 Blue Vodka; the standard Grey Goose is a little less than normal pool prices at $575. Check out the menu below.
Bottle Service Presentations
We've had a few bangers Botte Service presentations in the Bungalows. Usually, to get a presentation, you have to spend at least $1,500 at once and order some kind of champagne. This can fluctuate depending on the demand for the day or and the artist. If you'd like some sort of presentation, just let us know and we'll make it happen
We book a lot of corporate parties, and Daylight is a great place to host an event day or night. Play Management is the group who operates this pool, and they tend to be a little easier to work with as far as pricing goes than other places around town.
The best thing about this venue as far as events is that we can section it off to fit any size group. Let us know if you have a corporate event coming up in Vegas.
This is a great pool party for couples since the minimums are low. and you can get a great spot on the pool deck for a very reasonable price.
We understand that it might be difficult for a couple to consume an entire bottle, so it is possible just to order drinks and food to hit your minimum spend. We sometimes have situations where a couple might be able to join another group. Feel free to reach out to us, and we'll be happy to discuss it.
Guys, this is one of the few pools where you can get an excellent Cabana for a reasonable price and have a semi-private pool in front. For 2021, they put together a pretty good lineup a DJ's, so I would expect with Kaos now out of business this place will be rocking.
One good thing is they have an open bar for ladies to get them in their early, and that should help the ratio significantly.
Most large clubs in Las Vegas have what's called a girl-guy promoter system. They usually designate a pool bungalow at the pool to be the "Promoter Table." They will bring the prettiest girls from the guest list to the promoter table and let them drink for free until they get recruited to a Bottle Service table.
The Promoter bungalow is usually sold later in the day, and the girls are either brought to other tables or mixed in with the crowd. To get some of the pretty ladies from the Promoter Table over to your table, you will need to meet the girl-guy. The girl-guy is a promoter or host in charge of placing females throughout the day.
If you're struggling to get ladies, a tip to the girl-guy usually works wonders. Typically, we don't rely on the girl-guy system; as a team, we try to bring our ladies to your table, but in some cases, the girl-guy system can be effective. If you'd like to talk to the girl-guy, just shoot us a text, and we'll make it happen.
Bachelorette Parties at Daylight
They cater to Bachelorette and bachelorette groups love this pool party since the pricing is so reasonable and the tables are comfortable. We know a lot of the ladies are on budgets, so this is a perfect fit for a great party. We have some fantastic packages that include limo service and a brunch.
How do I get my guests in if they arrive late?
The process of getting in latecomers is straightforward if you have Bottle Service. All you have to do is walk up to the VIP Table area on the right-hand side, mention the table number, plus the name reservation name.
The only issues could be if the Club is at capacity and they cannot by law allow anyone else in, or if you've maxed out the number of guest entries allowed with your Cabana or table.
Play Entertainment, the same group that operates Daylight, also operates Light Nightclub in Mandalay Bay. We offer some incredible deals if you book both Clubs with us on the same weekend.
The management group likes to keep people in the family and incentivizes us to book at both. Light offers that big nightclub feel for that mid-level nightclub price. We have some fantastic packages that include limo service, all you can eat and drink dinners, gentlemen's clubs for males and ladies, plus shows.
In the summer months, usually on Thursdays, they have an evening pool party called Eclipse. Over the years, this has changed several times. Originally it started as a Wednesday party with all EDM. Then they went head-to-head with XS on Sunday night for the Night Swim.
As of late, they've settled on Thursday nights and more of a Hip-Hop vibe, but only once a month. On rare occasions they will pull off a Sunday party that might be a deep house evening event after the Lit Sundays. Check the schedule for the Eclipse party on the weekends you plan to be in town.
Amazing Dance Floor
One of the biggest advantages is that this party has a massive dance floor in front of the DJ booth. Between the stage and the water, there is a large dance floor. This area fills up with people and creates a fantastic party. As far as pools go in Vegas, this has the biggest dance floor. So, if you like the DJ or the artist and you want to come and dance, then this is the party for you.
The only two completely private pools are in Bungalow 1 and Bungalow 2. The rest of the Grand Cabanas share a long pool in front of them. All the pools may be shared, but there's enough room to have quite a party and the best part is the Grand Cabanas are not that expensive. Please let us know if you'd like to book one.
Pool Toys and Swag
You are not allowed to bring in any pool toys or blowup water floaties. The Beach Club usually supplies some, however, on busy days, there won't be enough room in the pool for toys.
FREE DRINKS for the Ladies
We can't mention this enough, ladies you are in luck for free cocktails at a pool party in Las Vegas. For 2021, Ladies drink for free on Thursdays and Sunday from 12:00 Noon – 2:00 P.M. and Friday and Saturday from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Since most drinks cost $10 to $20, this is a great deal if you'd like to save some money and get your buzz on before it gets packed.
Lit 🔥 Sundays Hip Hop Party
We've mentioned the Lit Sunday's Hip Hop Party and there isn't a better way to describe it than being “lit”. Sundays are typically as busy as a Saturday, but this party gets pretty packed. They don't have any competition in the way of Hip-Hop parties in Vegas, so if you like that Vibe, this Sunday party is for you.
The Beach Cocktail Servers
Like most pools in the City, the bottle servers are model-hot. We are friends with a number of girls, and they are super cool. We’ve had running issues in the past with service being a little slow; the challenge is that the service area is way off in the back corner and quite a distance away but we figure the good-looking cocktail servers make up for the slow service.
Lockers and Bag Check
As we already mentioned, unless you are a Cabana or Bungalow guest, you'll have to check your bag and there is a bag check in the front. There is also a bank of lockers. If you're facing the DJ on the righthand side, directly below the deck of Bungalow #2 you'll see two big banks of lockers. Be prepared, they are pretty pricey.
Quality of Crowd
This party will bring in a diverse crowd. They have an extremely loose guest list compared to the other beach clubs, so that tends to attract a different crowd. But that's not to say there isn't some quality mixed in. The promoters do a good job of getting the word out about the open bar for the ladies, and that brings in some talent.
They're also reasonably liberal with comp tables for ladies to help fill the place. You will rarely, if ever, see a big-name DJ here, so on any given a day you're competing with the other pools that have the big names.
Overall, since they have a fairly solid system to bring in women, the ratio is usually decent, and the design of the pool with the bar and dance floor creates a friendly environment to meet and talk to people.
There are only a couple of private restrooms, and those will be by the DJ booth for the table behind the DJ and the Bungalows. All other restrooms are in the back corners.
The men's room is on the left-hand side and women's on the right-hand side of the Main Bar. Also, in the back corner on the men's side, they have a unisex bathroom for the Cabana guests.
The Final Word
Daylight opened the same year we set up shop in Las Vegas, which was in 2013. In terms of the Vegas pool world, it's starting to be a bit of an older spot; however, the pools in Vegas seem to be a bit timeless. Last year the competition was at a much higher level with Kaos being open, but that came and went within 7 months.
When people start coming back to Vegas, this will not be their top choice for the pools.
On our list for the Top 5 Pools, this would be number 5, however, with the free drinks they offer to the ladies that will help get the crowd going. Ladies love free drinks in Las Vegas.
The Thursday party is decent compared to what else is open. Friday, they will likely struggle against the other spots. Saturday, they have a solid lineup of DJs booked for this year, and their Sunday party is unique with a Hip-Hop Part, so expect that to do well.
It's tough to gauge what it's going to be like with all the issues going on in the world but we will be happy to check it out for you before you get here and let you know
