Daylight Beach Club

Daylight Beach Club

Daylight Beach Club is an outdoor club that’s, well, on the beach! The entrance for the Daylight Beach Club is at the south end of the Mandalay Bay Resorts property. You don’t have to go into the hotel to access Daylight, which is a very convenient perk. 

The cutting-edge creativity that went into the design of Daylight can’t be denied. Nothing says Las Vegas quite like a 4,400 square foot main pool that acts as the primary dance floor for the beach club! Two smaller, private pools are available for cabana guests.

Daylight Beach Club Hours

Daylight is known for being one of the best pool parties in Las Vegas both during the day and at night. Daylight is open on Friday and Saturday from 11 AM to 6 PM and from 10 PM to close. 

The close time is variable depending on what performer is at the club that night and how many guests are in attendance. It’s always a party at Daylight! The beach club is open seasonally, usually from March to October.


Admission to Daylight starts at $20 for women and $30 for the guys. Ticket prices are more during special events. 

There is no guest list, so the only way to get into Daylight is on a general admission first-come-first-serve basis. Presale tickets are available for some special events, but not every day that the club is open. Cabanas can be reserved ahead of time too which gives you a guaranteed seat. 

Cabanas have a great view of the stage without the crowd in the main pool. Cabana guests can enjoy bottle service in the club starting at $550.

More Nightlife Options in Las Vegas

If a nightclub isn’t your preferred scene, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a night out on the strip. Whether you’re looking for a restaurant, bar, lounge, pub, casino, or just a place to go dancing and enjoy some music, there’s sure to be a venue that fits the bill on the strip.
