Las Vegas Topless Clubs, Nude Clubs and More

There are 16 topless gentlemen's clubs in Las Vegas, seven clubs where the girls are on stage fully nude, ten casino shows that feature topless showgirls, bars and nightclubs that feature erotic entertainment, peep shows, swingers' clubs, 10 adults-only topless party pools, and a dozen male revues, including one where the guys dance nude.

We've got strip clubs with such an awesome number of drop-dead gorgeous dancers that the scene rivals the harem of the Sultan of Brunei. We've got strip clubs that offer private VIP rooms where you can close the door and get creative with the dancer of your choice.

We've got high-mileage lap dances, nude bed dances, shower shows, mud and oil wrestling, bikini bull-riding, pretty beaver contests, and Monday night football titty blizzards. We’ve got strip clubs that feature stacked dancers, others that feature big booty, and still others that feature 18-year-olds who can fly around the stripper poles.

We’ve even got high-end legal brothels an hour's drive from Vegas.

As a traveling man, I've been to strip clubs in just about every state in the U.S.—including Alaska and Hawaii—and a lot of other countries as well, and I've never seen another town like this one for strip clubs. The best strip clubs in Las Vegas are some of the best strip clubs in the world.

Sexxy After Dark at Hustler Club — Review

I went to see “Sexxy After Dark” at Hustler Club last Saturday, a reworking of the “Sexxy” production show that had been featured at the Westgate prior to being closed by the Las Vegas pandemic restrictions. In my review of the Westgate show (here), I called Sexxy the “most erotic of the Vegas topless production shows, with the best pole-dancing performance, most sizzling striptease and best dancers.”

Much of the show at Hustler is the same as the show I reviewed at Westgate (which is good). This is basically a modernized version of burlesque, hot babes taking it off to pop music classics, like “Hey, Big Spender,” “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend,” Ginuwine’s “Ride It, My Pony,” “Tainted Love,” and “She’s My Cherry Pie,” among others.

Jennifer Romas’ pole dancing is spectacular and her steamy bathtub acrobatics are the highlight of the show in my opinion. One big difference between this show and the Westgate show is that these gorgeous professionally-trained dancers are now able to enjoy the traditional strip club practice of audience members making it rain. A pair of cocktail servers were kept busy throughout the hourlong performance scooping up wads of cash from the stage and the floor around the stage.

The Sexxy show takes place primarilly on Hustler’s main stage except for the bathtub sequence and an aerialist who performs on silk ribbons above the stage. Before and after the show, Hustler’s regular crew of dancers perform on stage. They all wear masks and do not remove their tops. The Sexxy dancers wear transparent plastic masks that are much more attractive because they’re almost invisible (see pic above of Sexxy dancer wearing mask, filched from the Sexxy Show Facebook page). Why don’t all dancers wear these?

Gabriella Versace, who was the singer in the Westgate show, has been replaced in Sexxy After Dark by Anne Martinez, another high-energy local singer with a powerful voice. She’s the only Sexxy performer who wears a traditional cloth mask, I presume because the plastic mask stifles her voice. She adds a lot of her own style to rock classics like “Light My Fire” and “I Put a Spell on You,” a great fit for this show.

Due to Covid restrictions, the club itself is a far cry from what we normally think of as a Vegas strip club. There are no lap dances out on the floor, no babes circulating through the crowd looking for guys who want “company.” I sat at the bar for close to two hours and was never once approached by a dancer. This is just a well-behaved audience watching a show. A bottle of Corona cost me $17. You can’t sit on the rail because the stage area is roped off to keep the customers socially distanced from the performers. To tip stage dancers you’ve got to lean across the ropes and throw your money. Jennifer Romas’ bathtub is up by the bar. This makes any seat at the bar among the best in the house IMHO.

Hustler has various package deals for this show  available on their website. If you are a local (with Nevada ID), you do not need a special ticket for this show. The show takes places in Hustler’s main room and locals with a Hustler VIP card can enter the club free every day (except Sunday night when the club features “industry night”). Sexxy performs on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights only at 9:30 pm. Typically, strip club shows start long after the advertised times, but not this one. Sexxy starts on time, 9:30 pm, and lasts exactly one hour. So, don’t be late.

Out of staters who want to see the show should order tix online at Hustler’s website. If you don’t have your own wheels, I’d recommend the $50 package that includes transportation from your hotel, admission, a spaghetti dinner and two drinks. Whatever you do, don’t arrive via cab or rideshare or you will be charged $100 to get in. You must also arrive in a mask, but as soon as you get a drink you can remove it and leave it off unless you start walking around.

NV State Health Officials Say Strip Clubs May Reopen on May 1

According to a report by Fox5 News in Las Vegas, Nevada health officials said “individual counties can allow strip clubs to reopen – if they choose – on May 1st.”

We’re not sure exactly what that will mean for Las Vegas — and we won’t know until Clark County makes an official announcement — so, here’s hoping that county officials will allow clubs to make their own decisions regarding restrictions, if any. It’s possible that the county may allow authorities in the individual cities to make their own restricition rules.

I’ll continue to follow this story. I wouldn’t advise anyone to start making travel plans until we get more information on what this means for Vegas.

Sapphire’s Topless Pool Opens April 30

Sapphire has announced that their topless pool will be opening for the 2021 season on Friday, April 30. As in years past, the pool will be open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from noon to 6 pm.

The club is still hiring for all positions, including Cabana Attendants, Bar Backs, Porters, Towel Attendants, Topless Model Cocktail Servers, Topless Model Bartenders, Lifeguards, Security Personnel, Cashiers and VIP Hosts. Tonight (Fri, April 9, from 8-10 pm) they will be interviewing for all positions. Bring pool attire, resume, and all applicable work cards. Note that they are optimistically calling for topless bartenders and cocktail servers.

Prior to Covid, admission to the party was always free, though you were probably making a mistake if you didn’t reserve a lounge chair, assuming you were planning to stay for a while. The lounge chair rental was $92 for the day and included $75 in food and beverage credit—a better deal than just about every other party pool in Vegas, and this was by far the best party if you include the nipple count in your party rating system.

Depending on how Covid restrictions limit the crowd, free entry may not be possible and reservations may be required. Much depends on what the new Covid mandates will be on May 1.

Reserve a lounge chair — still just $92 according to their website — (or any other pool packages for the VIP deck, daybeds or cabanas) here, or call for the limo, more info or anything else at 702-869-0003.

Note: There will be a $30 entry fee for the pool if you arrive by cab or rideshare. Topless, full bar, 21+

Is Las Vegas Returning to Normal?

by Nicholas Colon

[Nicholas Colon is a brilliant guy I first encountered at the Blackjack Balls, an annual Vegas get-together for top professional gamblers. He’s a writer and poker player and, like many of us who live here, is wondering WTF our city is turning into.  — Snyder] 

Approximately one year ago Las Vegas, like most of the world, shut down completely.  Restaurants and schools, along with every non-essential business, was told you can’t open because doing so would put the public at risk of the COVID-19 virus.  This begs the question what is essential? Answer: Whatever we (the government) say it is.

Some think this was the right thing to do, while others are less sure.  What we do know is that the Las Vegas economy was one of those most negatively impacted by the decision.  For the first time since November 1963 (the assassination of President Kennedy) Las Vegas closed its doors. But this time it was for an indefinite period of time.  Casinos, bars, restaurants and of course all of our favorite gentleman’s clubs were a part of this unprecedented shut down.

Now, here we are 12 months later and Las Vegas is slowly — perhaps too slowly — opening up.  So what does this mean? For the past nine months much of Las Vegas was operating at a 25% capacity, including all our favorite strip clubs.  It was only recently that this number was moved to 35%.

Opening up in this context doesn’t imply back to normal.  We are very far from where we were in the pre COVID-19 era.  Previously the topless clubs in Las Vegas were open all day every day.  Now clubs open at various times and some only on certain days.  The clubs now cater to the night and weekend crowds.  Some clubs open at 6 pm while others open at 8 pm.  Certain clubs are only open Thursday through Sunday.  A big contributor to the reduced operating hours is the lack of the mid-week convention business, which used to account for almost half of total Vegas (and Vegas strip club) tourist revenue.

Further hindering the traditional gentleman club experience in Vegas right now is the conversion of strip clubs to bikini clubs.  Two of Las Vegas’ most popular clubs — the Palomino Club and its nearby sister club Chicas Bonitas —have all their dancers dressed in bikinis on stage now instead of nude or topless respectively.  Mandated social distancing restrictions of 6 feet obviously hamper lap dance quality, again reducing the full gentleman’s club experience.

These restrictions are taken seriously by the club owners because they are strictly enforced by the authorities.  Over the 2021 Superbowl weekend three of the top strip clubs in Las Vegas were shut down for not following social distancing requirements.  Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club, Minks Las Vegas and Spearmint Rhino were all issued emergency suspensions for topless dancing and lack of social distancing. The suspensions were rescinded after 36 hours but it was enough to let all the strip clubs in town know that they must follow the distancing mandate.

The COVID -19 restrictions have also put a severe dent in the Las Vegas Strip casino business.  In the last year each of the major conglomerates has lost hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue.  No convention business, coupled with the lack of travel by vacationers, has caused the bottom line of the Las Vegas gaming companies to be tragically reduced.  To compensate for the loss in revenue the casinos have implemented some sneaky tactics.

The first is that all of Caesars’ properties have converted many of their blackjack table games to a 6:5 payout when the player gets a blackjack, instead of a 3:2 payout.  This may not seem to be that big of a change but it pushes the casino advantage to almost 2% instead of a meager 0.5%.

Another example of the casinos extending their profits over the unsuspecting player is at the roulette wheel.  The Venetian, Palazzo and the Tropicana have all switched to a triple zero roulette wheel.  This increases the casinos’ edge from over 5.3% to over 7.5%.  These are two of the most visible changes that casinos have made to what are certain to be many.  To get an understanding of how casinos’ games work and what to look for when evaluating games, the 888 casino blog offers great insight.

The “global pandemic” has brought a lot of changes in gaming.  A surge in the online casino industry has occurred.  Online poker in particular has seen a boost because many of the poker rooms in Las Vegas are either temporarily closed or have been permanently shut down.  The Mirage poker room, once considered the jewel of Las Vegas poker rooms, has now been completely removed from the Mirage gaming floor.  The Harrah’s poker room has been taken out as well.  Other poker rooms, including Bally’s, are only open on the weekends.

The games are not the only things that have changed in the Las Vegas casinos.  The buffets have long been a draw for Las Vegas casinos.  High quality food in an all-you-can-eat layout gave the paying customer a sense of value.  Now, all the casinos but one have eliminated their all-you-can-eat buffets. The lone buffet that remains is at the South Point Casino, and even this buffet is not self-serve. Instead, you are served by staff; consequently, the prices have increased.  Not by much, but it is enough to notice.

And the governor of Nevada has announced he has no intention of lifting his mask mandate in the state in the foreseeable future.

Las Vegas is open but it is a mere shadow of what it once was.  I hope we’re getting closer to Las Vegas reclaiming the title of the entertainment capital of the world, but it seems to be a ways away at this point, and things will not really start to get back to pre-COVID levels until the conventions return to Las Vegas.

If you find yourself planning a trip to Las Vegas, be sure to double check what’s going on at the places you intend to visit while here.  What you remember being there may not be what is currently there.
