Piremium Grand Cabanas
Daylight Las Vegas
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!

About Brian Pfeiffer & Surreal Nightlife
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 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
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; here is a snap-shot of Nevada gaming licenses and to my Clark County Professional Promoter business license. We also have 100's of 5-star reviews.
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.
Because of our strong relationships with the upper management and some of the VIP Hosts, we can deliver exceptional service.Get a Bottle Service Quote
Mandalay Bay Dayclub Location & Hours
The pool parties are on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The venue opens at 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. Daylight is located behind Mandalay Bay. The physical address is 3950 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89119. In the front, you will find the Bottle Service and VIP Entry on the left, and the guest list and tickets will be on your right.
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.
|11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.||11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.||11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.|
Daylight DJs, Artists & Music
Daylight is a mid-tier pool party event to attend in Las Vegas. The big hitters for this party usually play at the pool by day and Light by night. For the most part, the music will be a combo of hip hop, EDM, and Top 40. Check out all the Daylight Beachclub Events and enter the dates you will be in Sin City. The party gets wild and crazy in the pool; lots of splashing, smiles, and people having fun!
Where is the VIP Check-in?
Walk up, and if you have a table reservation with us, we will escort you in. Tables, tickets, and guestlist signage indicate your line you will enter on the left for tables. On holiday weekends and big performance days, we recommend arrival before 11:00 am. Signage will point you to one of three lines, tickets, guest list, and tables. The guestlist line can be ridiculous with 1-2 hours waits!
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.
The cost of a bottle is the same as nighttime little sister Light nightclub. Usually, an assortment of standard mixers includes cranberry juice, soda, tonic, orange juice, pineapple juice, and soft drinks. Red Bulls and bottled water are available for an upcharge.
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." Usually, for prime tables, a stage table, bungalow, or poolside day bed, you will have to "shake" a.k.a. the Vegas Handshake, which is a tip to the host's podium for the specific location

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 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 10 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.
Banquette Couch 8 ppl
The Banquette are known as “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 4 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.
What Does Daylight Beachclub Bottle Service Cost?
|$125.63 (8.75% City Tax on the Min Spend)|
|$105.00 (7.00 % Venue Fee)|
|$270 (18% to the server)|
|$25 (Processing Fee)|
|$0 ($0 Podium Tip for location)|
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 online 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 heftier podium tips needed when big hitters are in town, and it's a holiday or fight weekend.
Daylight at Mandalay Bay’s Best Tables
Obviously, if you can afford the higher prices for the bungalows with the pools, those are the best tables. We've had days where we over-delivered on a table for a lower minimum, and our customers were ecstatic. For a reasonable price, we would say the premium grand cabanas deliver, and they are an excellent party for the price - right in the pool action!
The Best Value Tables
It's hardly a "value" when a bottle costs $600 plus tip and tax totaling near $900, but if you just want a place to chill and hang out on a Friday or Sunday, you don't necessarily have to order a bottle. For a reasonable minimum, you can order food, beers, and drinks and still get a place to sit next to the main pool. On some Fridays and Sundays, when demand is low, you can get a decent spot on the banquette couches for a small minimum. Also, some Fridays and Sundays, we can get a deal on a cabana if you're a bunch of ladies.
Daylight Beachclub Bottle Service Menu
Below is the bottle menu; you will notice the inflation with the ridiculous starting prices:
Bottle Service Presentations
We have seen champagne sprays and queens chairs! Clique Management is known for its over-the-top bottle service presentations. Check out the video above of a big champagne spray that we've had. Usually, you must order a minimum of $2,000 at once and some sort of champagne. However, this can change depending on the day and the artist. On some days, all you must do is ask for some sort of presentation. On bigger artist days, it's going to require a little bit more spend to make one happen. Just let us know if that's what you're looking for, and we can coordinate a presentation and potentially a LED display on the big screen.
Vegas Corporate events
If you're looking to book a corporate event, just let us know, and we'll set up a proposal. Whether it's the pool party or the nightclub, we can make your event special. Many of our customers love renting out the Bungalows for their corporate events.Get a Corporate Event Quote
Pool Parties for Couples
The Mandalay Beach Club is an excellent venue for couples. The pricing is reasonable, especially on the weekdays, and the intimate setting makes it a great hang out for a cool duo. They also have delicious food, so if you want to have a beautiful day with your partner, this is a great spot. We also may have the opportunity for a couple to join a larger group on a bigger, more expensive table. Just ask us.Get a Couples Quote
Daylight Bachelor Parties
Since men book most of the bottle service, we book a lot of bachelor parties at this venue. We have some fantastic packages that include limos, brunch, and Vegas strip clubs. So, if you're looking for a package deal or a straight bottle service minimum, we can make that happen. We always do our best to try to get some Vegas girls to your table. It has been my unique selling proposition for years.See All Bachelor Packages
Bachelorette Parties at Mandalay Bay
Not to forget about our favorite ladies, we book a surprising amount of bachelorette parties at Daylight. Ladies love the cabanas or daybeds. On occasion, we also offer services to help get the ladies just past the VIP ropes. So, if you're interested in a package deal with drag brunch, all-you-can-eat-and-drink dinners, limos, and possibly a male strip club or male revue let us know, and we'll make your party fabulous.See All Bachelorette Packages
Las Vegas Promoter and Girl-Guy System
I bet you have heard of a Las Vegas Promoter, but have you heard of a girl-guy? Certain elite promoters earn the title of the club's girl-guy. These "super promoters" are usually good-looking fellas that seem to have a way with the hottest girls in town. They have a big role in the venue's operations. They are tasked with making sure the guys spending the money have females at their table to mingle with 🤗!
We all know Vegas has a lot of bachelor parties, and a lot of the guys in the crew might be a little "out of practice" when it comes to pulling talent to the section. The girl-guy typically will have dozens of girl comps, single hotties, and bachelorette groups to pull from a promoter table. They work for tips and bring more talent if the first round doesn't mesh well. I always like to help with talent, but some groups prefer the "hunt" on their own. Another option is to hire a couple of atmosphere models for around $400 for 4 hours; you can get some magazine quality models to hang with the boys all night, just let me know!Book Atmosphere Models
How do I get my guests in if they arrive late?
Usually, this is a straightforward process. Your guest(s) can walk up to the ropes and mention the name the table is under and the table number, and they get right in. Some exceptions could be if the club is at capacity and they just can't physically let anybody 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.
Note: This pool is strict on the number of people per table. If, for some reason, you have some uninvited guests at your table, be sure to 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 situations like this.
Light Nightclub Other Venues from Clique
Clique, the same group that operates this pool party, 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. Management also has some new venues such at Eight Cigar Bar and Gatsby’s in the Resorts World.Get a Multi-Clique Venue Quote
One of the coolest things about the bungalows is the private pools. Of course, they are expensive, but this might be a once-in-a-lifetime weekend. Usually, the top talent in the venue will be hanging out at the bungalows in the pools.
Pool Toys and Swag
They do have pool toys in the main pools at the day party!🦄 The scenery is excellent, so breakout out the Snapchat and Instagram because you're going to see some craziness going on in the pool - you just never know what's going to happen. Either way, it's a wild party and great for some footage.
World Famous Waitresses
One thing's for sure; Clique Group knows how to hire a world-class staff. The pool servers are some of the best-looking women in the world. When you join us at this event, you're in for a treat with the staff.
Quality of Crowd
Some people have the misconception that the pool parties in Vegas are filled with only models and fitness pros. If you were to look at the Club's website pictures, you might think it's a convention of perfect bodies, but that's not the case. Nowadays, the biggest clubs pay a lot of money for big-name DJs and have to sell a lot of tickets to cover the expense; in other words, anybody can buy a ticket. That's not to say if you have a bottle service reservation that you can't find some quality girls or guys, but for the most part, you'll find the best-looking people in the cabanas or bungalows.
What is Daylight’s Dayclub's Dress Code?
Swim attire only! They are dead serious about this! We have sent many customers to the Mandalay Bay Mall 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.Vegas Pool Dress Code
What do Drinks Cost?
Drinks vary in price at the bar. This venue is below the industry standard of pricing for drinks; they range from $12 - $20 per drink and Beers from $10 - $15 each. They have the crazy large plastic cup and straw combo that costs around $80. Individual 1L Bottles Start at $495 plus, and bottle service minimums typically range from $500 - $5,000 + before tax, tips, and fees.
Guestlist versus Tickets for Daylight Pool Vegas?
The Guestlist lines up to the right if you're looking at the front door. One of our good buddies is the main promotion manager and top promoter. The rules change each day, depending on who the artist is. A good rule of thumb is you must arrive before 3 pm. But generally, you'll find ladies are free, and guys with even ratio are typically free on the Daylight Beachclub guestlist. Another option is club tickets for the sin city pool clubs. An important tip to remember, Daylight Beachclub tickets guarantee entry, and the guest list does not.
Here's what you can expect on the guest list:
|Friday and Sunday||Saturday|
|Males||Free Entry before 3 am check-in||Free or Discounted Admission (depends on headliner – early arrival recommended)|
|Females||Free Entry before 3 am check-in||Free Entry (early arrival recommended)|
Here's what you can expect for Tickets:
|Friday and Sunday||Some Fridays/Saturdays/Some Sundays|
|Males||$30-$40||30 to $150|
|Females||$20||$20 to $50|
*Early arrival is required for Saturday events, especially with big headliners. Guestlist details are subject to capacity – if the club hits near capacity with the lines outside still full of people, the pool may decide to start charging people early.Get on The Daylight Guestlist
Suppose you're planning on attending a big event and can't get there early. In that case, you might want to investigate purchasing general admission tickets in advance to avoid paying the highly inflated price at the door and to guarantee your entry. Pre-purchased tickets automatically guarantee access to the venue; the Guestlist does not!Get Daylight Tickets
Use Promo code “Surreal” for a discount
Surreal Tip: Nightclub and Pool Party guestlists are geared more toward female patrons. All-female groups typically have a little more leeway for arrival time on big days, while groups with males in their party might not have the same time luxury. 📲 Contact us to find out what the best course of action is for your group by filling out a form.
Clique Entertainment Security
Before entry, all guests are required to empty their pockets (for ladies, they will look in your purse), submit to a metal detector test, and make sure everyone entering is not bringing in anything dangerous. It's equivalent to going through the TSA line at the airport. This applies to all guests, whether you are going in with general admission or a table.
Pro Tip: If you purchased a table and some unwanted patrons wander in by accident, it is always best to have the security staff ask them to leave instead of doing it yourself to avoid potential conflicts. In the event of a confrontation between guests, both parties may likely be asked to leave. Security has the final say on such matters.Las Vegas Security Guide
What can't I bring into the venue?
- Here are some things that you will be either asked to throw away or go back to your room to deposit before coming back:
- Vapes – weed dispensaries are extremely popular and legal in NV, and vaping is in vogue, but most venues will not allow vapes inside their premises. They will ask you to bring it back to your room or throw away the cartridge inside, even if it isn't a CBD cartridge.
- Outside Food/Beverages – finish your food and drinks before you get in the line
- Camera equipment – the only recording equipment you are allowed to bring is the one on your phone. Digital cameras selfie sticks are not allowed into the venue.
- Packs of gum – this only applies to day clubs, which tend to be a lot stricter about checking everything that goes into the venue, but guests have been known to try and sneak drugs inside packs of gum to get them into the venue, so expect to have your gum taken away at the door.
- Prescription medication (or anything resembling pills) – if you need your prescription while inside the venue, you will have to bring the prescription and explain what the medicine is for; otherwise, expect to get pulled to the side.
- Oversized bags – anything larger than a lady's clutch purse will be denied into the venue. This applies to most backpacks, gym bags, totes, etc. While most hotels can hold onto your luggage at the bell desk, Lockers, and Bag Check, Daylight has lockers, and they are pricey!
Brian Pfeiffer's Final Word
Daylight opened the same year I set up shop in Las Vegas, which was a decade ago. 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. This pool season the competition will be fierce from Encore Beach Club, Stadium Swim, Liquid Pool Lounge,Drai’s Beach Club, Élia Beach Club, Azilo Ultra Pool, Wet Republic, AYU Dayclub, Marquee Day Club, and the fresh Tao Beach, will this venue be able to compete? This is a question, they have low minimums and $500 bottles on the menu, but so does Élia and Azilo, so they will not be the only value party in town. From what we can tell they will not spend much on talent so they will rely on the promoters and companies such as us to fill the pool deck. We are hoping for this a go to spot for budget conscious groups, their Lit Sunday party was always good, but now Tao Beach and Drai’s Beach are all going all hip hop Sundays with talent, so the verdict is out.Get a Bottle Service Quote
