Light Nightclub at Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino stands as a veteran entry to the scene. Opened in 2013 after being remodeled from the previous Rumjungle Nightclub, Light is a spectacle of both sound and visual entertainment.

What is the Dress Code at Light Nightclub?
As with any nightclub dress code in Las Vegas, dressing to impress is always the best strategy. At Light, just about anything goes for girls, as long as you are wearing a top that adequately covers your privates, along with a skirt or dress that isn't way too short.
Due to it being more of an urban Hip-Hop venue, the dress code restrictions are pretty relaxed as Jordans and designer gym shoes are allowed. For ladies, as long as you don’t wear athletic gear and sandals, you should be fine. Typically, the only items frowned upon are hats, flip flops, shorts, sandals, sneakers, ripped and baggy clothing and steel toe shoes like Timberlands.

Like other clubs in Las Vegas, individual drinks can get pricey. Mixed drinks like Vodka Cranberry, Vodka Soda and Rum and Coke can range from $15-$20, while premium beverages like Red Bull Vodka or specialty liquors can bring the price upwards of $20-$25+ depending on how much of a tip you want to leave your cocktail server. Beers range between $10-$15 each, and shots vary on the brand but are typically in the $10-$20 range each.

Search Events By Dates
Does Light Nightclub Have a Guest List?
Guest Lists are a part of all nightclubs in Las Vegas. To be added to a Light Nightclub Guest List, you will need to provide your full name, group size with ratio of men and women, a phone number, and an email address. Once given, we 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. – 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 wait 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.
How Much are Tickets at Light?
Tickets are $20 for Ladies and $30 for Males on regular nights, however, on busier nights with higher end talent performing like T-Pain, or Saweetie, Light Nightclub ticket prices may increase based on demand.
Play Management Group Security
You must be 21 years of age to enter the club and have a valid form of ID; pictures on your phone of your identification won't be enough for entry, and neither will a temporary paper document. If you are not from the United States and have a foreign ID, you will be required to show your passport, so please bring it, or you will have to go back to your room to get it.
When coming to the club, expect to go through a security check point. The have a full-on TSA airport style metal detector wand. They also have a zero-tolerance policy for hardcore drugs and other substances. If you are found with these, there is a possibility you will be permanently banned or “86ed” from the property. Marijuana is legal in Nevada for recreational use, but the casinos are operating under Federal licenses, which still makes weed off limits in the casino clubs-weed pens included.
Light Bottle Packages and Deals
Management has some cheap bottle deals on all night with the exception being holidays and prominent artist performances. Usually, a couple of bottles and entry for ten people in the $1200 range is the best deal you will see at a prime club on a prime night.
What is Bottle Service?
By definition, Bottle Service means purchasing alcohol in higher quantities from the venue directly instead of having to wait in line at the bar and buy drink after drink. With Bottle Service, you get a full-service waitress and busser to pour drinks for you and your group while also keeping your area clean and secure for the night. You will be paying a premium to secure a table and bottle service in the club, but it does have many perks aside from the service staff.
Most important is having an area to sit down throughout the night. Seating is crucial for girls gone wild and other girl groups to enjoy themselves to the fullest. For many girls wearing heels, they boost your posture and make your legs look good in pictures, however, they also are a curse throughout the night out when you are standing on them too long. Being able to take some stress off your feet from time to time by sitting down is the best suggestion for a highly enjoyable night out.
What's a Minimum Spend?
The minimum spend is the amount you agree upon in advance to spend on alcohol. The minimum amount determines which table or real estate in the nightclub you are reserving for the evening. The better tables in the nightclub, like the Dance Floor Sections, will have a higher minimum spend agreement required to secure it.
Also, on nights with more prominent DJs or Artists booked, you can expect a higher minimum to reserve a particular table. Please keep in mind that all clubs in Las Vegas, including this venue, operate on a supply and demand system. When we quote pricing, that's just an estimate based on what we think the demand will be for that night, however, if there is an influx of clientele spending or you arrive at a much later time, the guarantee that you will get the particular table you requested may be in jeopardy as other guests might bid higher to reserve that section.
Having a direct line of communication with the Bachelorette Vegas Host that you are working with and being upfront and accurate with your time of arrival, is the best strategy for a stress-free and hassle-free Bottle Service experience.
Light Nightclub Typical Minimum Spends:
Upon entry to Light Nightclub, you will be dazzled by the first staircase that winds around a bend to the Main Room. It fully encapsulates the Light theme with its mesmerizing LED mirror display that lines the walls surrounding the stairs. This is a must-stop for a dazzling picture to post on Instagram with you and your budget bachelorette! Once past the staircase, the sheer magnitude of the venue size will hit you immediately, its main bar stretches down what feels like the length of a football field.
There is plenty of room to squeeze in and grab a drink. The center staircase that leads down to the Main Room of the Club is overwhelming at times as the sheer magnitude of the venue and the lights hit you as you take that first step into the open air. On each side of the staircase are entrances to the three tiers of private tables with Bottle Service. A security guard ropes off the walkways to these sections to ensure complete privacy for the paying clientele.
At the bottom of the staircase, the main dance floor is always packed with partygoers dancing the night away. Overall, Light is a massive venue that has plenty of room to move in it. If you love Hip-Hop music and want to be able to move around and enjoy yourself, then Light is the Club for you!

Sometimes a podium tip is required for a particular table or even to get a location on certain nights.
Light Nightclub Layout
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.
The venue’s bottle Service prices are slightly lower compared to the nightclubs in the rest of the City. Premium 1-liter bottles start around $475-$525 each with higher-end bottles like Grey Goose, Cîroc, and Hennessey ranging from $575 - $650 each.

Dance Floor Tables ($2000+ Minimum Spend)
The dance floor tables are fantastic. Tables 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, and 66 are huge and can fit parties of 20 to 25 people comfortably. Tables 65 through 67 are also roomy but not the full "U" like the other ones. There's something to be said for sitting at the prime tables in a stadium-style club where everybody can see you, so if you want to book a dance floor table, let us know, and we'll make it happen.
1st Tier Tables ($1000+ Minimum Spend)
There are no bad tables in the venue. The 1st-tier tables are roomy and comfortable, and the ones on the corners like 14 and 15 have more seat space for larger parties of more than 10 people. There is a spacious area between the table and the ledge. So, there's plenty of room to dance and hang out in front of your table. Dancing space is a rare commodity in Vegas these days.
The only tables that have a little bit of an obstructed view are 43 and 44, there's a large beam that kind of blocks the DJ view. Other than that, the first-tier tables are all prime tables let us know if you'd like to book one.
2nd Tier Tables ($600+ Minimum Spend)
This level has similar seating to tier one, with your corner tables like 25 and 26 having more room for larger parties. Tables 12 through 25, have a relatively large area in front of them to dance. The back ledge tables on the right and left, tables 1 through 6, and 26 through 30 have plenty of room to dance as well.
The tables 7 through 11 and 31 through 35 are perfect for groups of 6, Those tables are just the table with a bench on the right and left. Tables 29 and 30 can be combined for a large group to give you one monster table. Again, there are not any undesirable second-tier tables in the club, let us know if you'd like to book one.
Mezzanine Table ($500+ Minimum Spend)
The mezzanine tables are way up in the sky, but they are big and roomy and offer a pretty good view from way above. Back in the day, "the Mezz" tables were used more often when Light was busier, but these days there just isn’t enough business to seat the upstairs on most nights. The Mezzanine is perfect for a corporate event in the 50-100 people range.

What are the Best Nights to go to Light?
Fridays and Saturdays are the busiest nights at Light. Depending on the weekend, typically the major resident artists like T-Pain, or Saweetie are booked on Saturday Nights. Friday nights are themed by E-40 as "Function Fridays. Typically, E-40 plays there every other weekend on Fridays during the busy season, and always draws a lively crowd.
Wednesday nights are a big industry night and a great value night to party as well. If you are looking to party with the locals and are looking for a bargain bottle service night out, then look at Light for Wednesday nights. If you are a large enough group of Vegas girls, typically, you can get a complimentary table set up with 1-2 free bottles of alcohol on these nights with prime seating.
Quality of Crowd
This party on the weekends tends to lean more on the hip-hop music side. Although you can expect a very diverse crowd. From hen parties, to birthdays, to strippers to hotel guests, to tourists, you will find them all at this party. Come with a smile and we are confident you will find what you are looking for here.
How do I get my guests in if they arrive late?
Barring an issues with a capacity crowd, this is a pretty simple process. Your guest(s) can walk up to the ropes and mention the table number and the name the table is booked under, and they get right in. Some exceptions are that capacity issue, and they just can't physically allow anyone else in via the Fire Marshal's rules and regulations, or if you are way over your limit on the number of people at your table.
If you have some uninvited guests at your table for some reason, the proper way to handle that is get security to have them removed. I strongly suggest that you DO NOT try to remove them yourself as an altercation could occur, and potentially everyone at the table will get kicked out. With over 20+ years of experience in this business, please trust us, that is the best way to handle things.
