Are You Being Filmed in Vegas Strip Club?
Some have surveillance cameras in all the VIP areas. Others have cameras in some areas, but not others.
The dancers in clubs that have these cameras may tell you that their purpose is to make sure that they’re not performing acts of prostitution.
I believe this is true.
Why are the Cameras in The Clubs?
One club manager told me a different story, saying it was to protect the club from legal harassment in the event that a vice cop tries to bring them up on a phony prostitution charge. But prostitution busts usually stem from a dancer’s verbal solicitation of an undercover vice cop for an act of prostitution. Surveillance cameras don’t record sound, and since a vice cop wouldn’t be allowed to actually have sex with a dancer in order to bring charges against her, this explanation makes no sense.
Who Do the Videos Protect?
Another club manager agreed with what dancers have told me. “Those cameras are to protect us. We inform the dancers that their VIP room shows are being filmed and if we see them performing acts of prostitution, that’s grounds for their removal.
We’re not going to gamble with our liquor license because some girl wants to make an extra thousand bucks a night.”
Customers are Unaware
Many customers are unaware that they’re being filmed in the VIP rooms.
I suspect some would find it disturbing and many might feel it was an invasion of their privacy. The worrisome thing from the customers’ perspective is that a tape of the VIP-room activities could fall into the wrong hands. The thought that some jack-off manager might be watching you from his office is also not pleasant.
Video surveillance in the VIP rooms is a good idea, purely from the perspective of protecting the dancers from drunks and other deviants of the male species.
But keep in mind that a strip club is a place of business open to the public, and as such has a legal right to protect itself via video surveillance. You are under video surveillance in many nightclubs and bars these days, not just strip clubs. This is the world we live in.
in a profession that is dangerous by its nature. We would have a much lower quality of dancer without the video surveillance that’s now the norm in the Vegas strip clubs. In any major strip club in Vegas you can assume there are surveillance cameras in the VIP rooms.
Celebrity Video Footage from Strip Clubs?
Was Katy Perry’s lap dances at Sapphire made public? Did Ke$ha’s drunken antics at the Hustler Club go viral?
You can ask a dancer if there’s an area of the VIP that’s not under video surveillance. Some dancers know this and will take you there if that’s what it takes to get your business. But asking dancers in Vegas strip clubs for information is always a crapshoot. Dancers fly in every weekend from LA and SF, Seattle, Phoenix, San Diego, Portland. Many dancers are here for the first or second time, have only been in this club once before, if ever. They don’t know what the drink charge is in the VIP rooms, let alone which areas might be out of camera range.
I personally think the risk of public exposure from these surveillance videos is minimal. Many famous film actors, athletes, musicians and nightclub performers have patronized the VIP rooms in the Vegas strip clubs for decades and I’m unaware of any of their VIP room exploits being made public. David and Victoria Beckham spent three hours in a private room at the Spearmint Rhino in Las Vegas. How much would that tape be worth?
It’s a credit to the owners and managers of these operations how well they have guarded the privacy of their patrons.

I would think they also provide some protection for the dancers for unruly customers besides just a bouncer. I can say that at least one nude club several years back one of the girls I went back with a couple of times knew their location as she provided extras and strategically did so outside the view of the camera, she was open about doing this.
