As I glanced around the elevator on my way up to the third floor of Mohegan Sun Hotel, I was blinded by neon — lots and lots of neon. Apparently, fans of LMFAO (the party rockers who have brought us hits such as “Sexy and I Know It” and “Shots”) pledge allegiance to the band by bedecking themselves in legions of lime green, fluorescent orange and bright pink. I looked down and evaluated my black and white graphic print dress… passable. I would be the canvas, everyone else would be the paint.
The doors slid open and I stepped out into Miami. Oh, I mean into Mohegan’s newest rooftop nightclub — GLO at The Pool. As LMFAO had headlined a concert earlier that evening, they were in attendance to get the party started. (Although, looking around, it didn’t need any help to that effect.) Bikini-clad dancers shimmied beside the roaring fire pits while VIP waitresses scurried to and fro, replenishing bottles of Grey Goose for those lucky few lounging in private cabanas. DJ Clinton Sparks kept the tunes fresh.
The sold-out pool party was a blast, and I am eager to return again for what is surely one of the most unique and resort-like experiences here in New England. Check out GLO at The Pool every Thursday and Saturday evening. Dress to impress, but feel free to pair your ensemble with some flip-flops. You can even wear a bathing suit in place of your skivvies. It is, after all, summertime. $10 Thursday, $20 Saturday, free for hotel guests. 866-760-5901
