Las Vegas may be known for its extravagant shows, gambling, and swanky nightclubs, but the culinary experience provided by the City of Sin is unlike any other in the world. Whether you need a quick bite on the go or want to have an exquisite steak dinner, Vegas has you covered. The Light Group’s vast array of restaurants is no exception to the rule.

Grammy Nominees at LIGHT!
Cirque de Soleil’s Michael Jackson ONE at Mandalay Bay
The 56th Grammy nominees were announced last Friday. In just a couple of years, the “Best Dance Recording” and “Best Dance/Electronica Album” categories have come a long way. By no surprise, Calvin Harris and Kaskade dominate both categories with two nominees each. However, there are a couple of other notable mentions—including Light resident DJs, Alesso, Zedd, and Andy Caldwell. Zedd’s hit song ‘Clarity’ is up for best dance recording while Alesso’s ‘If I Lose Myself’ & Andy Caldwell's Day's Turn Into Nights are up for 'Best Remixed Recording'. It’s been a big year for all 3 DJs, who knows where 2014 will take them. Maybe to a Grammy win. We’ll have to see in January.
It only made sense that the theatrical spectacular that is Cirque de Soleil would create a show featuring music from the greatest entertainer to ever walk to the planet. Michael Jackson ONE takes the audience on a journey through the King of Pop’s musical catalogue while incorporating all of the breathtaking visuals and acrobatics of the Cirque de Soleil experience. The ONE Theatre at Mandalay Bay comes equipped with a state-of-the-art surround-sound environment that leaves the senses tingling (in a good way) and makes the audience feel as if they are part of the show. The cast of 63 dancers also does an excellent job of capturing the spirit and creativity of Michael’s music with their acrobatic interpretations and dance choreography. To sum it up, the show is a must see. Next time you are in Vegas, be sure to check out this extraordinary tribute to the ONE and only, Michael Jackson.

The holiday season has finally arrived and it looks like the weather has decided to play along with the winter theme. Although the city is known for its brutally hot summer days, Las Vegas can also reach temperatures near freezing in the winter. Last night, Vegas experienced a phenomenon that rarely hits the city…SNOW!!! A number of Vegas residents and visitors took to social media to discuss the weather and share pictures of the powdery downpour.
While this kind of weather may slow down the average city, the bitter, cold streets don't affect the Entertainment Capital of the World one bit. Las Vegas is continuing preparations for the holiday season. This year, we look forward to welcoming back Krewella to The Light Club's annual Holiday party on December 18th. And the fun doesn't stop there! The celebrations continue through the New Year’s Eve weekend, featuring Nicky Romero, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Alesso.

Resident DJ’s Light up DJ Mag Top 100 List
On Friday October 18, Armand Van Helden rocked Light Nightclub with his unique style of hip-hop, 80’s pop, funk, reggae, and house blends. Van Helden is at his best on stage, always getting the crowd involved and showing off his gritty New York attitude. Dropping hits left and right, Van Helden had the crowd on its feet all night with songs like “The Funk Phenomena” and “The Boogie Monster”. As soon as his number one single, “You Don’t Know Me”, hit the speakers, the place erupted with champagne showers and visual effects that would give the Fourth Of July a run for its money.

Fresh off the festival circuit, Disclosure blessed the Light Nightclub stage with yet another memorable performance. The British duo played hits from their #1 debut album Settle, and had the crowd grooving to songs like “Latch”, “F for You”, and “White Noise”. Disclosure’s infectious style not only forces you on your feet, but has you singing their catchy lyrics as loud as possible, no matter how terrible your voice is. It’s especially hard to resist when there is a giant illuminated face on stage singing along with you. Mixing Light’s Cirque du Soleil atmosphere along with Disclosure’s audio/visual experience was definitely the recipe for an unforgettable night. FULL DISCLOSURE: GO SEE THEM PERFORM ASAP. And yes, pun intended.
