When The Light Group opens its pool club Daylight Beach Club at Mandalay Bay over Memorial Day Weekend, head honcho and founder Andrew Sasson promises that the upscale, chic tropical oasis will be inspired by European hotspot Ibiza and hold a staggering 5,000 guests.
This morning, Andrew released the first renderings of the beach club opening May 26 and in a release said: “I’ve spent years traveling and researching the international beach club scene, and I’m confident that Daylight Beach Club will offer our guests a truly unique and unparalleled experience.
With our out-of-the-box thinking and design, we are creating something unique and will once again revolutionize the daylife and entertainment scene in Las Vegas and beyond.”
Andrew promises to transport guests from The Strip’s hustle and bustle to the sophistication, high-energy entertainment, fine cuisine and innovative technology on the sands of Ibiza.
The getaway will be centered on a pool with three wet decks. With 50,000 square feet of flexible outdoor space, the parties can easily transition from day to night with Mandalay Bay as the backdrop. A 1,500-square-foot stage adorned with vines and metal mesh serves as the focal point and is framed by six LED screens.
Andrew says it will be a true Las Vegas interpretation of one of the most powerful stages in Ibiza. Resident DJs include Skrillex, Sebastian Ingrosso, Axwell, Alesso, Baauer, Nicky Romero and more to be announced later, with sound and lighting designed by John Lyons.
The outdoor venue, conceptualized by James Gundy, will feature a Mediterranean color palette with cool shades of natural Earth-based colors and organic tones. The outdoor venue will feature Mexican wall sconces and fixtures, rustic planters and decorative ironwork in a desert landscape.
The 4,400-square-foot pool will be framed by 70 daybeds, 23 cabanas and two bungalows available by reservation. All cabanas include safes, and bungalows feature private restrooms, servers and pools.
