Light Guest List
Guest Lists are a part of all nightclubs in Las Vegas, including Light. To be added to a Guest List, you will need to provide your full name, group size with ratio of men and women, a phone number, and sometimes an email address for the promotor or host. Once given, the promotor or host you are dealing with will provide you with instructions on where to go, how to check-in, and the time constraints of the free entry for ladies. Most nights, the guest list goes from 10:30 p.m. – 12:00 a.m.; some nights it can go up to 1:00 a.m. However, with many other people trying to get into the club for free on these lists, there can be an extended line and a long wait to get in. Sometimes the way may take upwards of 20-30+ minutes. Being on a Guest List does not guarantee immediate entry into the venue so be prepared to wait to get in as you are skipping the cover charge to get in free.

While Light is considered a Mega-Club based on its size in Las Vegas, it doesn't carry the enormous costs and minimums compared to other Clubs like XS, Omnia, or Drai's. Minimum spend agreements are much lower for premium tables, and on most nights a two or three bottle minimum might position you on the lower dance floor or on a prime first tier table.
Typical Minimum Spend Range
2nd tier - $300 minimum
Upper Dance Floor - $500 minimum
1st Tier / Lower Dance Floor - $1,000 - $1,500 minimum
Regular Friday and Saturday Nights
2nd tier - $300 - $500 minimum spend
Upper Dance Floor - $500 - $1,000 minimum spend
1st Tier / Lower Dance Floor - $1,500 - $2,000+ minimum spend
Elevated Nights (Holiday Weekend or Major Act Pricing)
Balcony - $500 minimum spend
2nd Tier - $1,000 minimum spend
Upper Dance Floor - $1,500 - $3,000 minimum spend
1st Tier / Lower Dance Floor - $4,000 - $6,000 minimum spend
(Minimum spends are a credit to spend on the menu for Bottles and Drinks)
(Taxes, Tips, and Service Fees are not included, they are calculated once you close your tab)
So, let's do the math:
Let’s say you want 2 Bottles of Grey Goose ($575 each x 2) = $1,150 minimum spend + $96.31 Taxes (8.375% City Tax) + $80.50 Venue Fee (7.00% Venue Fee) + $230 Tip to the waitress (20% Gratuity) = $1,556.81 Total Cost out the door if you did not order anything else on top of the bottles.
Light's stadium-style seating provides each tier an exceptional view of both the DJ booth and its overwhelming LED Video board. Each level is significantly elevated above and also divided by railings from the subsequent lower sections. This provides plenty of space between each table and also prevents tables from becoming overcrowded and overflowing into other sections. Most tables are surprisingly comfortable, and there really is not a bad view from any of the tables downstairs.
Its Bottle Service prices are slightly lower compared to the nightclubs in the rest of the City. Premium One Liter bottles start around $475-$525 each with higher-end bottles like Grey Goose, Cîroc, and Hennessey ranging from $575 - $650 each.
