Word on the street is that Mandalay Bay clubs Light and Daylight will soon be under new management, departing from Hakkasan Group’s roster. Colin Comer and John Pettei—former Light Group executives and part of each venue’s opening teams—will assume management roles under the new structure.
Hakkasan Group purchased all of Light Group’s venues in early 2015.
UPDATE: As of 11 a.m. October 9: Comer and Pettei’s company, the newly formed Play Management will operate Light Nightclub and Daylight Beachclub in Mandalay Bay. Working with Light and Daylight ownership—Ron Burkle’s Yucaipa, a private equity and venture capital firm—Play will oversee all aspects of the businesses as managing partners, while also developing future projects related to hospitality and nightlife.
