Cirque du Soleil, bottle service, and a massive pool full of insanity

To prove that daylight can be cooler than you ever imagined, Mandalay Bay just opened, well, Daylight: a 50,000sqft, open-air beach club featuring a gigantic pool, daybeds, cabanas, and bungalows galore, and a giant, state-of-the-art stage that's so cool it has its own party on Wednesday night's ("Eclipse"). Then, come the time when there isn't any daylight, step into the nightclub Light, which blends bizzaro performances by Cirque du Soleil with bottle service and world class DJs like Skrillex, Axwell, and Zedd.

Upon arrival, you'll be greeted by the Daylight Dolls.

You don't want to see this place on the day they let the caddies in.

Daylight -- Cucumber Cooler

Cocktails like the Cucumber Cooler will... ummm, cool you off.

The government will likely classify this as a water park at some point, if they do indeed classify things as water parks.

Daylight -- Eclipse

On Wednesday nights the party's called Eclipse, and the stage stays open until an eclipse occurs 3a.

Inside at Light, everyone loves to party with creepy bird women.

The LED light wall helps transform the club into some sort of aquarium whenever they want.

Green is pretty sweet also.

And so is this.
