Sapphire – A Club for Titty Worship
There are many reasons I recommend Sapphire (club review / club website) to friends – the elegance, the excellent restaurant, the luxurious Skyboxes, the topless pool parties, the sports-viewing parties with their $1 lap dance tsunamis (see The Best Lap Dance in Vegas). But what it really comes down to for me is the lap dances.
I used to think of lap dances as a trivial erotic pastime. But after spending a lot of Friday nights at Sapphire, I think of them as an important life ritual that leads to spiritual awakening. With 400+ topless dancers at peak hours, there’s a lot of spiritual waking up I do on a typical Friday night at Sapphire.
This isn’t your grandfather’s form of worship. This is 21st century Vegas-style hands-on worship. This is young, ample female breasts. In front of you. All around you. All over you. Many economists and financial analysts believe the $20 lap dance at Sapphire is the single best value a man can get for his money in Las Vegas. I tend to agree.
Also, starting this weekend, Sapphire will be offering a dinner date package with their featured performer every Friday and Saturday night. Tonight (Friday) adult film actress Chloe Amour, star of Naked Bondage Temptations, will be the featured performer.
You can also reserve a seat at Chloe’s VIP table with a two-hour open bar, and she’ll be available for VIP dances when she’s not on stage. Reserve your seat at her table or set up a dinner date online here. For more information, see Sapphire Offers a Girlfriend Experience with Adult Film Stars.
With Sapphire’s other package deals (buy online) you get a discount on drink prices, plus free limo transport and admission, a line pass and a reserved VIP table–a real value because seats are hard to come by at peak hours and it’s hard to get a lap dance if you can’t find a place to sit down.
If you’re alone, the VIP65 package gets you a reserved table and provides extra bang for your buck (see my $ analysis in the club review–link above), all expenses considered. Note: Do not take a cab or commercial limo or you will be charged the $35 entry fee. Drive yourself or call for the free club limo at 702-869-0003. (There’s a $15 reservations fee for the limo, waived if you purchase a buy-1-get-1-free drink coupon or bottle–a no-brainer.)

Palomino Club – Where You Can Drink Booze While Watching the G-Strings Drop
Plus it’s the only Vegas strip club that has a full bar and fully nude dancers, both on stage and in private shows, either in the Lipstick Lounge, which is all curtained private booths (with no extra bar tab or bottle fee) or in one of the club’s private bedrooms. Both are great values.
Customers must be 21+, but dancers only have to be 18+. (You can’t buy alcoholic beverages for girls wearing plastic wristbands. Another great value.)
On weekends you’ll often see Riley naked on stage, and you can play with her in the VIP as well. Riley was our first Dancer of the Month.
Always reasonable drink prices. $6 drafts and $8 domestics for locals and out-of-towners alike.
Palomino’s $60 “Flying Solo” package gets you free round-trip transportation by the club limo, free admission, a line pass and two drinks–or roughly $90 in value. (Don’t waste your money on cab fare and cover charge. You can get a lap dance or two with what you save.)
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 free, but if you arrive late on a busy night, you may be hit with a tab to cover two drinks up front.
Note: Palomino 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.
Another Saturday Night – Another Porn Star at Sapphire
Tonight (Saturday) adult performer Britney Amber (former brothel escort and star of Barb Wire XXX) will be burning up the stage as the featured dancer. You can reserve a seat at Britney’s VIP table with a two-hour open bar, and she’ll be available for VIP dances when she’s not on stage. Reserve your seat at her table or set up a dinner date with Britney online here.
Sapphire Comedy Hour
The Sapphire Comedy Hour is a showcase of stand-up comics that takes place every Saturday night at 8 pm. There’s a separate $20 admission for the show, but your entry fee gets you into Sapphire (the gentlemen’s club) for no extra charge when the comedy show is over. Compared to most of the comedy shows in casino showrooms–where prices range from $50-$100–this is also a cheap date (a rarity in Vegas). (You can also get a $65 VIP ticket to the Comedy Hour, which includes limo transport and admission, plus an open bar from 8 -9:30 pm.)
Top working comics that change weekly (tonight Lenny Windsor and Olivia Rhee) plus a classy burlesque dancer (Kalani Kokonuts) and a very slick magician (Mon Dre) make this a great way to get your wife or girlfriend into a strip club. Expect a lot of risqué humor and off-the-wall banter from the comics as they often use this venue to try out new material, especially stuff that might be strip-club appropriate.
There’s also a dinner option in the Showroom (gourmet Mexican–organic, non-GMO–from the El Dorado Cantina) before or during the show (Showroom doors open 7 pm).
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.
Valentines Day, February 14
Burlesque Roulette at Artifice
Burlesque Roulette is a revue that takes place on the second Sunday of each month. The first half of the show is a “regular” burlesque revue, with each of six dancers doing a striptease in turn. But for the second half, each dancer spins a wheel and whatever number the pointer lands on determines the song the dancer has to strip to. The person who chooses the songs on the wheel has a weird sense of humor. This is a fun show.
Performing tonight are Kerri N’ Fuego, La Rosa Muerta, Neon, Sugar Rae Bones, Suzil Von, Nomi Malone, plus the Balloon Master and emcee Miranda Glamour. Here’s my review of Burlesque Roulette when it was at The End bar last year.
Now, it’s at the Artifice, 1025 First St Suite #100, Las Vegas. Show starts at 9 pm. Tickets are $10 at the door. Full bar. 21+
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+.
