With its 60,000–square-foot imprint, the Encore Beach Club—and adjacent Surrender Nightclub—is one of the largest indoor/outdoor premier destinations in the desert entertainment Mecca of Las Vegas. Created by namesake Steve Wynn and Managing Partner Sean Christie, the pair set out to make the venue one of the best not only in Vegas but also worldwide.
The lush oasis features 40-foot palm trees surrounding three tiered pools, oversized lily pad loungers, dance pavilion shower poles, a gaming pavilion, and 26 private cabanas and eight bungalows outfitted with refrigerators and flat screen televisions. As day turns to night, revelers can transition into the chic 5,000-square-foot Surrender Nightclub and dance the night away to world-renowned electronic music artists and DJs.

The designated fixtures Lyons specified encompassed multiple Pulsar ChromaHeart, ChromaScape and ChromaBatten fixtures, driven by ChromaZone power supplies.
"We selected the Pulsar fixtures based on several criteria, which included elegant design, IP rating for outdoor use, and high light output," expressed John Lyons. "We found the products solved a few inherent lighting challenges within the space, and were ideal for use in the outdoor shower dance pavilions because of their wet rating. The fixtures also offered good color power to size ratio."
"We wanted to make it the best beach club in the world, and we feel like we've done that," Christie offered. "Mr. Wynn said it's one of the most exciting things he's ever built."
