A Better Way to Choose a Vegas Strip Club


If you're looking for information on the best strip clubs in Las Vegas, you just hit the jackpot, Jack. You've found the ultimate Las Vegas guide to girls peeling off their underthings in public.

Las Vegas Topless Clubs, Nude Clubs and More

There are 16 topless gentlemen's clubs in Las Vegas, seven clubs where the girls are on stage fully nude, ten casino shows that feature topless showgirls, bars and nightclubs that feature erotic entertainment, peep shows, swingers' clubs, 10 adults-only topless party pools, and a dozen male revues, including one where the guys dance nude.

We've got strip clubs with such an awesome number of drop-dead gorgeous dancers that the scene rivals the harem of the Sultan of Brunei. We've got strip clubs that offer private VIP rooms where you can close the door and get creative with the dancer of your choice.

We've got high-mileage lap dances, nude bed dances, shower shows, mud and oil wrestling, bikini bull-riding, pretty beaver contests, and Monday night football titty blizzards. We’ve got strip clubs that feature stacked dancers, others that feature big booty, and still others that feature 18-year-olds who can fly around the stripper poles.

We’ve even got high-end legal brothels an hour's drive from Vegas.

As a traveling man, I've been to strip clubs in just about every state in the U.S.—including Alaska and Hawaii—and a lot of other countries as well, and I've never seen another town like this one for strip clubs. The best strip clubs in Las Vegas are some of the best strip clubs in the world.

NY Judge Rules Pole Dancing Is Art

According to the New York Law Review, a state administrative law judge has ruled that pole dancing is an art like ballet (meaning not taxable for state tax purposes).  The ruling also applies to other types of non-pole dancing that strip club dancers do on stage.

Unfortunately, he ruled that lap dancing is not art (meaning it’s taxable).   In my view, he is incorrect on the second part of his ruling, but strip club fans have to take progress wherever they can get it, and the ruling on pole dancing is definitely progress.

This case goes back more than ten years, when the Nite Moves gentlemen’s club in Albany challenged the tax it was being assessed on the basis of dancing in strip clubs being artistic performances and therefore not taxable under New York tax law.

Nite Moves lost that case, with the court ruling that dancing in strip clubs was simply not art. The club continued to appeal the tax court’s decision, however, and after presenting five expert witnesses–two of them professional dancers–finally scored half a win.

The ruling means that the state of New York cannot tax the cover charges paid by customers, since the cover charge allows customers to view the art being presented on the stage.  They also can’t use punitive cover charge taxes as a means of trying to drive strip clubs out of business.

However, the club will have to pay state taxes owed on lap dances. Here’s how the judge put it:

“The overriding preoccupation of both management and dancers was luring patrons to small rooms for the ultimate in physical contact with the performers and having them remain there as long as possible to maximize revenue, not the performance of a choreographed dance or artistic performance. The components necessary for a theater … are absent from the private dance rooms.”

In my view, this is absolutely incorrect.  Only a minority of lap dance fans, in my view, are looking for “the ultimate in physical contact with the performers.”  What most are looking for is the ultimate in an erotic theatrical performance, with the same spiritual uplift and emotional catharsis as in any other artistic theatrical performance.

I’m hoping Nite Moves elects to further appeal this decision on lap dance art. Since when does a dance have to be “choreographed” to qualify as art? And what are “the components necessary for a theater”? The only components “necessary” are a performer and an audience. You can have an audience of one.

You don’t need a stage and curtains to have a theatrical performance. I’ve seen Shakespearean  companies perform outdoors on lawns. In a private show in a strip club, the couch is the stage. A dance may be improvisational, but it’s still art. Some of the most artistic dances I’ve ever seen have taken place in strip club VIP rooms.

TVO’s Dancer of the Month: Meet Serenity from Little Darlings

little-darlings-vegas-dancer-serenity-smTVO’s June dancer of the month, Serenity, was born in California, but her family moved to Vegas when she was six years old, so she grew up here and considers herself a Las Vegas native.  She dances at Little Darlings, a nude club that admits customers age 18+ (club review / club website)

Her stage performances are riveting. At first glance, she comes off as a sweet young girl having fun; then she shifts into her seductive vamp mode. It’s quite the one-two punch.  Her style is a contrast between a devilish punky heartbreaker and a sophisticated Hollywood glamor girl. Somehow, she pulls it off.

She told me the first time she danced on stage wasn’t in a Vegas strip club, but in Albuquerque at the Fantasy World nude club. It was amateur night and she was excited about entering the contest. Needless to say, she took first place, and she was hooked. She also discovered she loved the stage and she loved performing for big crowds.

When I finally got to interview Serenity, I found talking to her just as sexy as watching her dance.  She’s smart, charming and witty, and she kept me laughing.

I love Palomino Club (club review / club website) on Friday nights. You can expect to find 60+ dancers here on the weekend nights, and the nude stage show is the one of the best in town–an erotic circus. Nude private shows in the club’s private bedrooms, which are large and comfortable, are also available.

Palomino is the only nude club in Vegas that serves alcohol. With $8 domestics and $6 drafts all night long, drink prices here are also among the lowest of the Vegas strip clubs.

In the club’s private theme rooms there’s a bottle fee, but there’s no extra bar tab in the VIP room, which is divided up into small curtained private rooms. Palomino is always one of the best strip club values in Vegas.

Take the club’s free limo to get free admission (a $30 savings). Call 1.702.327.7258 to reserve your ride.

Former San Diego Vice Cop Weighs in on Harassment of Strip Clubs

According to the San Diego Reader, San Diego’s vice cops continue to harass dancers at Cheetahs, a nude club in the Kearney Mesa suburb. We’ve been following this story since March of last year when the dancers at Cheetahs sued the city for $1.5 million for human rights violations.

In that case, the dancers were held in the club’s dressing room for hours while the cops photographed them naked, claiming the photos were required for identification purposes and they needed to catalog all of the dancers’ tattoos. None of the dancers were being investigated for a crime.

San Diego responded to the dancers’ lawsuit by revoking the club’s business license. Cheetahs then followed up with a lawsuit of their own, claiming the city was retaliating because of the suit filed by the dancers. Links to TVO’s former articles are below.

Some of the code violations cited by the city include things like “approximately 30 percent of her nipple was showing through her bra” and “The shirt was cut too short and the bottom half of her breasts jutted out beneath her shirt.” In 25 years of operation, Cheetahs has never had any kind of an actual prostitution bust.

According to a former vice detective who spoke to the San Diego Reader, the vice cops use undercover operations as an excuse to party and spend taxpayer dollars on booze and private dances. He’s quoted as saying:

“Vice unit is a club, people line up and join vice. There are detectives that go drinking every night. When they decide to target a place they’ll send in vice cops, narcotics, code compliance to find violations. Once they get a hard-on, they will do whatever they need to do.”

When the San Diego Reader attempted to obtain information from the police department on how much money the cops were spending on booze and lap dances in strip clubs, the cops responded:

“The amount spent during these covert operations is part of investigations conducted by [San Diego Police Department] and part of investigatory filed for licensing purposes. They are exempt from disclosure….

Your request for complaints made to the Police Department regarding Cheetahs is also exempt from disclosure.

In addition, disclosure of the information requested is against the public interest because there is a necessity for preserving the confidentiality of the information that outweighs the necessity for disclosure in the interest of justice.”

Once again, San Diego is in the running for TVO’s 2015 Most Corrupt City Award.
