Step Into The Light:  An Insider Peak Into the Mysterious LIGHT Nightclub.

What kid doesn’t fantasize about running away and joining the circus?  MGM’s LIGHT Nightclub lets the kid in all of us do just that 3 nights a week.  By partnering with the powers that bring the amazing Cirque du Soleil productions to life, they have created what is hands down the most original nightclub experience in the world.

A look at their monthly calendar says it all.  Unlike other Las Vegas nightclubs, no performer is featured more than a once a month, so if you got your mind set on catching Swedish DJ Alesso, he only takes a break from his tour every 30 days to stop by LIGHT.  3 nights a week, a different host puts on a unique show that you and your entourage are a part of.  Video mapping, crazy costumes and Cirque-esque choreography makes a night out at LIGHT seem just as much a show as it does a party.

Above and beyond the DJ booth is an LED screen where Cirque du Soleil dancers perform their show stopping acrobatics to the beat of the music.  More dancer-contortionists are literally hanging from the rafters over the dance floor and on top of speakers scattered around the club. Laser lighting also becomes a part of the show, as patterns of color are seemingly dancing along with you.

VIP bottle service is a must at LIGHT if you want a place to sit back, sip on Jack, and gander at the live décor. The cost of VlP bottle service at LIGHT for a group of 4 can be less than $2,000, depending on the booze.  And the liquor menu is just as enticing as the entertainment.  Top shelf everything from Puerto Rican rum to French champagne.  All served with ice, mixers and condiments by your VIP table waitress.

You know you’re somewhere special when a $570 bottle of Hennessy VS is the least expensive cognac on the menu.  All you need to go along with that bad ass drink is a Cuban.  High rollers feel free to blow their poker winnings on a $16,000 bottle of Remy Martin Louis XIII.  The champagne flows in abundance too, with the price of a standard sized bottle of Cristal Louis Roederer Rose at only $3,020.  Now that’s the way a baller gets some honey at his VIP table.

Only 16k, yeah, I'M IN! Do you have an ATM nearby?

No matter what your drink poison is, you will find a bottle for under $600, and not of the speed rack variety either. Super-premium Peligroso tequila is as dangerous as its name implies and costs only $580.  May seem pricey, but with no wait and no cover charge, prime seating, security and personal service, it’s well worth the expense.  Especially if you are dividing the check up among friends.

The next time you drop by Sin City, forget buying tickets to a Cirque show and become part of the show at LIGHT nightclub.  The dance floor is pumping, the champagne is pouring and there is something breathtaking to behold around every corner.  Kick it up a notch with VIP table service and a bottle of Stoli for a truly unforgettable Vegas voyage.
