Follow along closely, because this gets confusing: hotels created “daylife” poolside parties so the partying wouldn’t have to stop. After all, who wants to hit a nightclub at 2pm? So what’s the next logical step? Turn a brand-new daylife pool venue into a nighttime pool nightclub after dark. Such is the case with Eclipse, Mandalay Bay’s pool/club that goes by the name Daylight while the sun is shining and becomes Eclipse when the moon rises. A large pool abuts the stage, with ample room (the space is 50,000sq ft) for dancing and cabanas on either side. Six LED screens provide patrons good views of some of the hottest spinners in the biz, which so far have included Axwell, Skrillex and Nicky Romero, among others.
