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!

    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?

      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.
