New Club in Las Vegas!

It’s spring in Vegas and great things are going on all over town. The big conventions, like the National Broadcaster Association, are spending money again, today’s NFL Draft is expected to attract 700,000 football fans to their events … and the big news is the opening of the Peppermint Hippo in the heart of the “Wedding Chapel Corridor” on Las Vegas Boulevard.

For fans of “South Park,” you’re reading that name correctly; It’s the name for the men’s club in the show from Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Since 2019, this new chain of clubs has opened in Reno, Little Rock, Akron, Toledo, Neenah, Wisconsin, and Pharr, Texas (McAllen). Those Triple A minor league markets were joined on March 31st by the Major League strip club city of Las Vegas at 1531 S. Las Vegas Blvd. (702) 473-9977.

If the address looks familiar, it’s because Peppermint Hippo took over the large space previously occupied by the famed Olympic Gardens. The significant upgrades and renovations include a well-lit and convenient parking lot, a sleek modern interior, and thankfully a large bar that has stools, where solo guests who want to cool their heels when they walk in can get their bearings. If you’re going during the daytime, you’ll be fortunate to meet Las Vegas club veteran Siobhan serving drinks. Stunning Siobhan is quick with a joke, she’d probably light up your smoke (but no cigarettes – hookah only), and she pours a great drink. Siobhan has worked with this management team for many years, including at the similarly named Spearmint Rhino.

My first visit was in the early afternoon. The club operates a 24-hour schedule, so I’m looking forward to returning during prime time. Several beautiful dancers were there in the afternoon, Including Kailanni, a knock-out from another Peppermint Hippo; she was a delight to talk to and to get several memorable dances from. Great mileage!

The happy-hour drinks are $7 for a premium whiskey.

We will have a more detailed review of the new outpost of Peppermint Hippo in May. We look forward to meeting the management team and hearing what plans they have for this big space just north of the Strip. The club’s vicinity is coming on strong with recent road improvements, median palm trees, and the new restaurants and breweries in the nearby Arts District.

We would love to hear from TVO readers who have been to the new Peppermint Hippo.

Cheers!

NOT THE VEGAS CLUB!

    Well finally made it back to Vegas, missed my September trip because of coronavirus. Was in Vegas over new years & went to Peppermint Hippo on Wed Jan 4. Wasn’t too busy only 1 side open but did get a little busier after 1 am. I got there at 8pm & did a booth with bottle. All dancers approaching me wanted $40 a song but I told them I only do $20 songs on the floor. Only 1 dancer refused to dance for $20 She said she only dances for $40. No big loss as about 50 dancers in club & did dances with about a dozen girls. Great mileage on all dances except for 1 dancer who basically did an air dance. When Manager came in he stopped by my booth & I asked him again about cost on floor dances & he confirmed that they tell the girls $20 floor dances on the floor. But he also said that the dancers are independent contractors & they can’t force them to do $20 dances, but to stand firm on my price & there are lots of dancers that will do $20 dances. I’ve been going into strip clubs in Vegas for yrs & before the pandemic it was always $20 floor dances so I have a really hard time paying $40 as it costs twice as much. I’m not a wealthy guy so spending A grand in a club is out of the question but have no problem spending $400 to $500 on a night. The dancers didn’t want Vodka this time they wanted Tequila so next trip in February I’ll order a Tequila bottle LOL. Overall I really like this club & will continue to go back as long as I have a good time there. Didn’t do the 15 min VIP For $100 this trip but probably should have taken 1 dancer I did dances with as she was really hot great hands on dances & spent $160 on dances with her in the booth. If she is there on my February trip will definitely will take her to the VIP. Can’t remember names as was drinking too much. Overall great night & would still recommend this club if you haven’t tried it yet, you won’t be disappointed.

    Trip Report Saturday 12/17

    Called for the free ride about 11:15 pm. No problem they said, about 15 minutes. Driver called me in about 10 minutes, said he was doing a drop off and would be there in about 15 – not a big deal, I just hung out in Harrah’s waiting. Easy ride over, I asked if they were busy and he said steady but not packed. Dropped me at the front, told the door man he had one to send in. Driver started to take off and I had to yell at him to hold on so I could tip him. The host walked me in, no cover, but told me he didn’t have a table for me right then so I told him no problem, I’ll just get a beer and hang out to get a look at the girls.

    Domestic beer was $14 plus tip. No girls jumped right on me at the door so I was able to take a look around for a few minutes before getting approached. The back section was curtained off but there were a good number of dancers. Not too hard a sell but a few were pushy so I had to be a little more firm on declining with those. One took my hand and put it right on her boob – likely would have been a good time but she was NOT my type so didn’t want to blow any cash on her. I asked a host about the dancer from Sapphire rumored to be working at the Hippo – Charlie. He checked but no go on this night – too bad.

    Had a bunch of offers as I stood and watched the stage. The usual, where are you from, where are you staying, have you been here before. One even asked if I would like some company later at my hotel but I declined. Headed to the men’s room and passed a hot dancer on my way who asked where I was going. Told her to wait there for me. When I came back, she was there and we hit it off so went to find a chair.

    Not too many out of the way dark chairs so we did a few dances there near the stage. She was looking for a better location and asked a group near a booth if they were ok with us taking a chair right there and they said yes so we got a better spot. Spent about 2.5 hours or so with her – great mileage. At one point some drunk female customer came close and started talking to us, asking to join in, etc but she was not hot at all and we politely declined. The drunk even sloshed a bit of a drink on my leg but not a problem.

    Finished up with my dancer and got her cell for next time I’m in town. I was down to about $50 left so I stood and watched the stage for a bit. They seated a group of about 8 in a large booth next to me and they looked like they were blowing some big $$$ as a number of girls were hanging out there. Was approached a few more times but I declined with the statement that I was out of money and about to leave. A couple girls got pretty pushy, asking me to use my ATM card or credit card, which as normal for me were back in my hotel room safe. One even tried to get me to pull out my phone and open up Zelle or Cash app – told her I didn’t use those either at which point she walked off in a huff.

    I did start talking to one hot girl right near the end. Told her the same, about to leave, etc but then I said I’ve got $40 left, how about 2 dances. She said she could do that and ended up doing 3 for $40 – SCORE! It was closing in on 5 am at that point so I decided time to go. Called Uber – took a while and it was cold so they let me hang out just inside the door while I waited. There were still a good number of girls there at that time and guys were still trickling in here and there. Rode back to Harrah’s. Couple drunks getting into the elevator and one was about to fall over. I was talking to a maintenance guy who said ‘I have to clean that elevator so hopefully he makes it to the room without puking’. LOL. I wished him good luck and headed to bed.

      Was the sun coming up when you left? I ask because behind the parking lot wall is a home that has roosters! It’s a surreal experience to hear them crowing when you can still smell the perfume of a dancer on your shirt.

      What did you think of the place?

        It was still dark when I left. This was my second visit – I like it there. It was a bit slow for a Saturday night at midnight (and beyond) but it was December 17 so don’t know if that was a reason, close to holidays. I will say that overall, Sapphire seems to have hotter dancers. A lot of those that approached me were in the 7 range and a few probably slightly lower.

    Was in Vegas 10 days ago for my 1st trip since 2019, because of the coronavirus pandemic. Use to go to OG’s a lot when I was in Vegas, & now Peppermint Hippo is in the old OG’S building. Had to give this club a try so went in on a Tue afternoon & met manager Joey. Took me & my buddy on a tour of the club, then took a dancer in to the 15 min private room for $100. Had an outstanding dance, & for $100 VIP room probably the best deal in Vegas. Booked a limo & bottle service for Thu night, right now Bottle special $150 during happy hr till 7pm, beers were $12. Was surprised how busy it got around midnight & had several dances for $20 each song in a booth. Great dances , however some dancers tried to get $40 per dance but AS soon as I told them management said dances are $20 a song on the floor all dancers then did $20 dances. Typical for some dancers to try & get more. Dances at this club are really good & you won’t be disappointed. Good party atmosphere later in the evening, good management. Definitely give this club a try when your in Vegas , it will probably be your new favorite club. I can’t wait to go back in Sep. If you ever visited the old OG’S dances are the same at Peppermint Hippo. Note: Peppermint Hippo does not pay cab drivers for bringing people to the club like other clubs in Vegas do. Because this club does not pay cabs no cabs to take you back to your room at the end of the night. Call an Uber or Lift. I did get a ride back to my hotel by the clubs limo service. So if you call the club for a pickup by their drivers they will take you back to your hotel. Guess their policy of not paying cabs is not stopping people from going to Peppermint Hippo as it was packed on a Thursday night. So good nights to go would definitely be Thu,Fri,Sat & maybe Sun. Word of mouth must be getting around how good this club is & the terrific floor dances for $20 a song. Remember to always ask manager/floor person walking you to your seat if the club sets the dance prices & how much they are. This way you are not over paying for dances if the club sets the price. Since the pandemic has ended some clubs are allowing dancers to charge what they want, & some clubs are still setting the dance prices. I’ve heard some of the other clubs the dancers are charging $40 to $60 per song, to try to recover their losses over the last couple of years due to club closures during the pandemic. I think I ran into a couple of these girls as 1 used to work at Sapphires & another one use to work at Hustler & both tried to charge me $40 a dance. AS soon as I mentioned the manger walking me to my booth told me the dances are $20 on the floor they both charged $20 a song. The dancer that said she use to work at Sapphires I did 7 songs with her for $140 as the dances were so good. Wish I had of taken her into the private room for 15min for $100 lol. I’ve also noticed there are NOT a lot of recent reviews of all the Gentleman clubs in Vegas since the pandemic ended. A lot of reviews are a couple years old. If going to the clubs in Vegas write reviews on your experience as it’s good to have updated recent reviews of your experience, as this helps when deciding what clubs to try for other people going on a trip to Vegas & want to go to a strip club.

      Thanks Doug. I was there Saturday night…. from Midnight to 6. It was fantastic. The music is great from quality DJs. There seemed like there were at least 125 dancers after midnight… and they stayed until the sun came up. They are adding a kitchen soon.

      Agree that PH is a contender for top spot. Also… for cabs go across the street to Dino’s Bar… 24/7 also.

      Went to the Hippo last night (Thursday) with my bro. got hooked up with a host who got us a ride and comped our door fee and got 2 drink tix. He just asked us to tip the driver well. Place was steady at midnight with about 30 girls. Picked up quite a bit around 1 and 2 am. Manager said LD were 20 to 25$. Girls wanted anywhere from 30 to 40 per song but went down to 20 when I let them know I had been paying 20 per song. I usually offered to get 2 to 3 songs in a row. Milage was ok. Had some great dances and some lame ones. Stage show was good but not to the quality of Palomino. I paid 200 plus 50$ in drinks for a 30 min VIP. Dancer was on fire in VIP so I tipped her. A lot of the girls wanted more than 200 for the 30 mins so not sure how or if the club enforces the house rate or not. We had a good time and will definitely be going back.

    Well, this was before Uber and smartphones. I’m certain I spent all my money except for a few dollars to ride the bus back down the strip. Pro tip – don’t take a credit card to the strip club.

      LOL …. definitely no credit cards.

      Call us the “crypto boys” Nothing But Bitcoin.

      BTW … check out Arnold Snyder’s new book … Blockchain Nation. It’s terrific!

    Spent many a night at the OG back in day – it was the best! Had to run out of there once at 4:30 am, back to TI to throw my shit in the suitcase, and catch a 5:55 am flight. Also came out of there one morning at 8am after a good night – I was blinded by morning sunshine – caught the bus right across the street back down the strip to the hotel. I’m an early riser a lot of mornings in Vegas – would 6 or 7 am be a good time to pop in? I also like the afternoon scene with happy hour beers, which I know the hippo is advertising. Anyone checked that out yet?

      Ha… a city bus after a night of Olympic Gardens! That’s pretty damn frugal Nunya.

      I think they’ve added a new bus shelter across from the Peppermint Hippo. TVO needs that to the club Amenities.

      I’ll give you a lift next time ….

    Alright the real question is….Is this place even remotely as good as Olympic Gardens was? How’s the mileage?

    Reply
    • Scott

      The mileage is as good as any of the best in town.

      As for comparisons to OG …too soon to tell. It’s still in the “breaking in” phase … and part of that is sorting out what kind of customer following it develops. Being a 24 hour joint will help. The lazy and shirtless that don’t want to hunt down club hours is already voting with their feet…. we love it!

    Thanks for the report. What are the prices for lap dances and VIP room dances? AND how would you rate the quality of dancers from 1-10, thanks?

    • Scott

      I got 4 dances for $100.

      That’s how I negotiate…. take it or leave it.

      …..also, I stopped by at 6am Sunday morning, and the place was rocking hard.

    Hey I asked Arnold before I knew he was leaving but any chance of an updated list of the topless pools and their hours. They seem to be dwindling especially during the week.
