Light Nightclub at Mandalay Bay will show its true Vegas colors this weekend, with a Friday kickoff party and a Saturday afterparty recognizing the UNLV vs. Duke college basketball game set for T-Mobile Arena on December 10, a milestone meeting for two teams that haven’t matched up for a quarter of a century.

And if that doesn’t sound festive enough, Light will really throw it down on Wednesday night, with the return of the Mother of All Christmas Parties. It was a huge hit last year, a relaxed, industry-oriented party where attendees wore ugly holiday sweaters, and the club’s sexy servers were decked out in red lingerie to match their Santa hats. As it goes at Light, the entire venue was decorated on theme, including sometimes silly, always high-energy holiday visuals flashing across its 700-plus digital screens.

Since its rebirth at Mandalay Bay in 2013—the original is now the Bank at Bellagio—Light has quickly engineered a reputation for creating the right vibe with the right music and the right scene for its audience at any given party. Those who remember last year’s holiday shindig recognize it as a perfect example, and they’re surely looking forward to this year’s edition.
