    By Steve Bornfeld

    Check your health plan—does it cover For the Record: Baz? Medically speaking, you’d know the condition as whiplash—but with music, triple plots, doomed love, poison, gangs, a prostitute, actors hanging off half-moons and voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir.

    Mining Filmmaker Luhrmann’s Mystique for Vegas Baz-ma-tazz

    By Steve Bornfeld

    Described as “a show breaking out in a bar,” the production is a cabaret-style mash-up of musical theater and rock concert excerpting scenes and songs that have been injected, often anachronistically, by Baz Luhrmann into his films.

    Light Changes Its Tune

    By Jen Chase

    When Light opened at Mandalay Bay in 2013, the 38,000-square-foot nightclub added a new page to the Las Vegas playbook by collaborating with Cirque du Soleil to add ultra-sensory visuals and acrobatics to an already electrifying high-tech experience. Now, a year in, Light is reshaping how the cool kids party all over again by actually dialing […]

    Best Nighttime Pool Party

    While XS’ Sunday Nightswim started the trend and Surrender’s Splash Dance still draws rave reviews, newcomer Eclipse at Daylight took it to new depths this year to win this category. While booking talent such as Nicky Romero, Skrillex and Zedd helps, the differentiating factor is the Ibiza-inspired layout. There’s a giant, dome-shaped, concert-style stage crested by massive LED towers, with the pool perfectly centralized to offer the best views in the venue.

    Best New Resident DJ

    Light is enjoying its debut summer with the prodigious Zedd on its resident DJ roster. The 23-year-old German wunderkind produces with meticulous complexity, so it’s no surprise that he started playing piano at 4 and drums at 12, then broke into the Beatport charts before he could legally drink. Zedd was notably absent from the Electric Daisy Carnival lineup, making his presence at Light that much more exclusive and his impending appearance at October’s Life Is Beautiful festival Downtown that much more anticipated.

    Best New Nightlife Tactic

    This award was going to Light from the start. First, because of the Cirque du Soleil acrobats who soar above the dance floor and behind the DJ booth. Then more specifically to Light’s interactive “acrowall,” the acrobat-friendly installation that visually morphs as performers bounce and glide about. But in the end, it’s about the integration we’re calling “Cirque du DJ,” in which resident DJs make their entrance by literally flying from the balcony to the booth.

    Why Strip Solar Is Smart Business

    By David G. Schwartz

    MGM Resorts International recently announced that Mandalay Bay was going solar, with plans to cover the 20 acres of rooftop above the resort’s convention center with 20,000 photovoltaic panels. This development is the latest, and certainly not the last, attempt by the hospitality company to position itself as a green giant. At peak performance, the panels will produce about one-fifth of Mandalay Bay’s overall electricity needs. That’s a great deal of electricity—6.2 megawatts. But it doesn’t seem so much compared with the 400,000 megawatts Las Vegas uses each day.

  • MGM to Blanket Mandalay Bay Convention Center With Solar Panels

    By Heidi Kyser

    During a press conference to preview the National Clean Energy Summit 6.0, set to take place Aug. 13 at Mandalay Bay, the host of the event stole the show. The casino-hotel’s president and COO, Chuck Bowling, announced that parent company MGM Resorts International intends to plaster the roof of the Mandalay Bay Convention Center with a 6.2-megawatt rooftop solar array.
