Palomino Club – Vegas’ Only Full Nude/Full Bar Strip Club
Palomino Club (club review / club website) is the only strip club in town that serves alcohol and has a fully nude stage show (the best stage show in town). This club is popular with locals, and the out-of-towners who have discovered it keep coming back.
If you haven’t been in the club recently, the new VIP room located upstairs–the Lipstick Lounge–is furnished with comfy booths, each one curtained for privacy. Nude private shows in the Lipstick Lounge start at 3 songs/100 with no extra bar tab or bottle fee.
Scarlett Dances at Palomino Club

On weekend nights, you’ll usually see Scarlett, our September Dancer of the Month. Scarlett’s worth the price of admission all by herself.
Palomino’s drinks are the same good value for locals and out-of-towners alike (domestics $8, drafts $6) all night long.
Groups of two or more can get free admission to Palomino (a $30 savings for each member of your party) by calling 1.702.327.7258 for the club’s free limo. Locals who arrive in their own cars are always free, but if you arrive late on a busy night, you may be hit with a tab to cover two drinks up front.
|Pro Tip: If you’re a solo guy going to the club, save $20 on the admission charge either by driving yourself or taking a cab to Jerry’s Nugget casino and then walking across the street to Palomino.
If you take a cab to Palomino, the cabbie will hit the club with a high head fee and you’ll have to pay the full $30 cover. If you drive yourself or walk over from Jerry’s Nugget, you’ll only pay $10.
While you’re at Jerry’s, get a piece of pie at the best diner-style coffee shop in town.
Note: This club gets packed on the weekends, so arrange for limo pick-up by 10-10:30 pm–or buy a package at the club website–to make sure both a limo and a good table will be available.
Last Two Days for “Showgirls the Musical”
“Showgirls the Musical” (show review) is performing its last shows on Friday and Saturday this weekend at the Onyx Theatre. The show starts at 8 pm and general admission is $20. VIP admission (sitting in the front two rows) is $25.
The show is a parody of the critically-panned 1995 film that starred Elizabeth Berkeley as a Vegas stripper/showgirl. This is the unauthorized musical version. It’s a funny, sexy show that amounts to a party for fans of the cult film. You’ll have fun and Kady Heard (who gets topless in the lead role) is a joy to watch.
The acoustics in the theater are not ideal. Either get the $25 ticket or get there early to grab one of the general admission seats as close to the stage as you can, so you can hear the jokes and the revised lyrics to the Prince songs they mock.
The Onyx Theatre is located at: 953-16B E Sahara Ave, Las Vegas, 702.732.7225 (It’s inside a strip mall on Sahara a few blocks east of the Strip.) Click for Tickets.

Sapphire Gentlemen’s Club – A Babe Bacchanal
Addison Is a Sapphire Gem
With 400+ topless dancers, Sapphire (club review / club website) is a lap dance aficionado’s paradise. If you’ve never been in the World’s Largest Gentlemen’s Club, and especially if you’re a fan of large breasts, both real and enhanced, do yourself a favor and see this place before you leave town.
Sapphire’s package deals (buy online) are good deals. You get a break on the drink prices, plus free limo transport and admission, and also a line pass and a reserved VIP table. At this club, if you don’t have a reserved table, you may not get a table–or any other seat–at all (and it’s hard to get a lap dance if you can’t get a seat). So go take a look at their deals and decide.
If you’re alone, the VIP60 package gets you a reserved table and provides twice the bang for your buck (see my $ analysis in the club review –link above), all expenses considered.
Call 1.702.869.0003 to reserve the club limo. Sapphire will waive the $15 reservations fee if you purchase a 2-for-1 drink ticket–a no brainer.
Sapphire Comedy Hour – Every Saturday Night at 8 PM
The Sapphire Comedy Hour starts promptly at 8 pm. There’s a separate $20 admission, but compared to most of the comedy shows in casino showrooms–where prices range from $50-$100–this is a cheap date. This is a couples-friendly show, so if you’re on a date, you can also order dinner (gourmet Mexican–organic, non-GMO–from the El Dorado Cantina) before or during the show (Showroom doors open at 7 pm).
Top working comics (Jeremy Flores and Paul Brumbaugh tonight), hosted by Phil Peredo, plus a burlesque dancer (Kalani Kokonuts) and a magician (Mon Dre–an illusionist in the style of Lance Burton) make this show a great way to start the evening. Call 1.702.869.0003 for the club limo–the $15 reservations fee will be waived if you purchase a buy-1-get-1-free drink coupon.
After the comedy show (around 9:30), you walk right into Sapphire (the gentlemen’s club) for no extra charge. The Saturday night dancers will be swarming the aisles.

Bikini Bull-Riding at Gilley’s
If you like cheap beer, shit-kickin’ country music, and girls in their underwear, Sunday night is always fun at Gilley’s (inside Treasure Island). The 11 pm Bikini Bull-Riding contest is actually pretty sexy–amateurs, mostly in their skivvies, trying to stay on that mechanical bull to win money. No cover charge. You must be 21+.
