The Bank Nightclub at Bellagio to Bring New Level of Luxury to Las Vegas Nightlife

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - December 11, 2007) - The Light Group, renowned for shaping the nightlife landscape on the Las Vegas Strip, opens its latest nightclub concept, The Bank at Bellagio, Thursday, Dec. 27. With this elegant, intimate and exclusive nightclub, The Light Group once again transforms the nightlife experience in Las Vegas, raising the bar of sophistication and luxury.

Catering to a discerning audience with higher sensibilities, the exquisitely designed space at The Bank encompasses everything a guest at the AAA Five Diamond Bellagio has come to expect. Guests will enter through a grandiose foyer adorned with bottles of Cristal stacked floor-to-ceiling on each wall. The space is topped off by a champagne glass ceiling fixture which reflects a kaleidoscope of light and colors. The nightclub's main room presents a dramatic aerial perspective: elegant VIP booths layer the dance floor in an impressive multi-tiered environment. The dance floor, set at the lowest tier, is slightly raised and bordered by reflective translucent glass creating a brilliant focal point in the center of the room. Two full bars, positioned at either side of the club, will offer a wide array of libations and fine liquors, while a raised DJ booth overlooking the dance floor at the center of the room will be the source of energy and excitement.

Offering unrivaled service in a high-energy atmosphere, the chic and stunning 8,000 square foot space sets The Bank apart from the traditional multi-room cavernous clubs that cater to the masses. The Light Group, known for setting the standard for service, will offer the most refined bottle service in Las Vegas. Each table will receive a personal service team, led by a cocktail server -- adorned in an elegant gold cocktail dress -- who will command the bottle service experience.

Attention to detail abounds with combinations of rich textures and modern elements which create a harmoniously paired aesthetic. A resplendent palette of colors complements The Bank's intricate details creating a luxurious yet contemporary vibe. Vivid, custom-designed ambient and mood lighting on both the ceiling and floor will create an ultra-sensory experience. Translucent etched glass railing will reflect one-of-a-kind fiber optic lighting that will pulsate with the music. A state-of-the-art sound system will bring the club to life while the world's premier DJs spin the best in hip-hop, rock and eclectic mash-ups.

The Bank's Managing Partners are New York club owner, international promoter and actor Danny A and The Light Group's Jodi Myers. Danny A, a nightlife impresario among the world's most exclusive club scenes and part owner of New York hot-spot Upstairs, and Myers, a six year VIP-marketing veteran, will oversee the venue's overall operations, marketing and brand development.

"The Bank will be a world-class nightclub sure to exceed the expectations of even the most discriminating of guests," said Myers.

"Just as Bellagio is known for world-class service and sophistication, The Bank will offer unsurpassed service in a luxurious nightlife setting," said Randy Morton, president of Bellagio.

The Bank is available for private events seven nights a week for groups of 200 to 1000 people. With fully customized video capabilities and state-of-the-art sound and lights, The Bank can be specifically tailored to any group's needs.

The Bank Nightclub will be open Thursday through Sunday from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. Admission charge is $50.
