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.

palms pole dancing2This Thursday through Sunday, September 4 – 7, the 2014 Pole Expo will be held at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas. The expo includes workshops, seminars, male and female pole-dancing competitions and a showcase of ten international pole dancing stars.

If you’re interested in watching the competitions and showcase, that event is on Thursday evening, starting at 7 pm. Tickets are $49. Ten female finalists and ten male finalists will be vying for the title of Overall Pole Classic Champion 2014.

On September 5 through 7, more than 100 workshops and seminars for pole enthusiasts will be held from 9 am to 5 pm each of the three days. Workshops include not only instruction on pole dancing, but also on burlesque, handstands, silks, yoga, flexibility, splits, stretching, chair dancing, neo-burlesque, go-go dancing, striptease, lap dancing, belly dancing, floor work, and related interests.

Tickets for the entire 4-day event, including the competitions and showcase plus passes to all workshops and seminars, are $165.

The free twerking workshop is on Sunday at 1 pm. I can think of worse ways to spend an afternoon than watching a group of young women learn how to twerk.

Best Vegas Strip Clubs Fall Update

I just finished my early fall update of my picks for the Best Las Vegas Strip Clubs.

There have been a few changes since the midsummer update.  Crazy Horse Too is off the list as it has recently closed. Nude club Talk of the Town has been edged off the list by continued improvements at the Palomino and Little Darlings nude clubs.  And I’ve removed a few topless clubs when I noticed the hustle factor getting too high.

Palomino is singled out for having the most consistently beautiful plus talented stage dancers of any strip club in Vegas, even at off-peak hours. I’ve been deliberately going to the club mid-week and at weird times, trying to find some second-string dancers, and I haven’t found one yet at any hour of the day, any day of the week.

Meanwhile, Little Darlings is running so many Blue Light Specials (two lap dances for $20 or $30, depending on the time and day of the week) that their effective lap dance price is now two-for-$20 or $30.

In addition, many of the Little Darlings’ dancers have increased their tease factor on stage. I’ve complained in the past that in between songs too many dancers were walking off the stage to remove their g-strings and then return to the stage naked, seemingly oblivious to the fact that many in the audience (me!) would prefer to watch the dancers slowly remove their g-strings on stage, as part of their dance.

For decades this has been considered the sexiest part of a striptease. And recently I’ve been noticing more and more Little Darlings dancers taking their time with erotic striptease instead of leaving the stage to get naked between songs. Makes my heart sing.

A tip of the hat to Sapphire for the most-improved stage show since the summer update. I’ve been seeing the best pole dancing and erotic acrobatics here of any topless club in town.  Sapphire is also reaching out to couples, and they’re showing up in greater numbers.  My wife and I had a very enjoyable evening at the club.

Note that the Sapphire Pool hours have been cut back to noon – 6 pm, Fri – Sun.

e. e. cummings was a burlesque fan

eec0465e. e. cummings, the American poet I quoted on 28 August 2014, was a huge fan of burlesque from the 1920s (when he was in his 20’s) until his death in 1962. His wife was a former Ziegfeld showgirl. At a time when the politicians and press were calling burlesque obscene and demanding laws to ban it, cummings insisted it was not only art, but high art.

eec0738In 1925, in Vanity Fair, he wrote about New York’s most popular burlesque house, Minsky’s National Winter Gardens Theater:

… the creations of the National Winter Gardens possess, in common with the sculpture of Gaston Lachaise, the painting of John Marin and the music of Igor Stravinsky, the virtue of being intensely alive; whereas the productions of the conventional theatre, like academic sculpture and painting and music, are thoroughly dead and since “art,” if it means anything, means TO BE INTENSELY ALIVE, the former constitute art and the latter are balderdash.

eec1142In another essay, titled, “Burlesque, I Love It!” he describes one popular dancer, June St. Claire, as having,

… a literally miraculous synthesis of flying and swimming and floating and rising and darting and gliding and pouncing and falling and creeping and every other conceivable way of moving …

eec0834cummings wrote about strippers in some of his poems, and also sketched and painted strippers. Many of his paintings hang in museums. You can find a number of his sketches and paintings of strippers for sale online at The Paintings of E. E. Cummings: Strippers.

Vegas Strip Clubs Online: Into Little Darlings’ Dressing Rooms

Although I’ve always loved watching women take their clothes off on stage, I never thought of myself as a voyeur.  I was just a regular guy who liked women.

Then, about eight years ago, I checked out the Diamond Cabaret. The door to the dancers’ dressing room at that time was located in a corner next to the ticket taker’s office. Because of all the mirrored walls in the club, every time a dancer entered or exited the dressing room, you got a shot of the whole inside of the room.

In fact, it really jumped out at you because the club itself was so dark and the dressing room was so bright. You couldn’t help but find your eyes being drawn to the dazzlingly-lit scene that appeared whenever the door swung open. Gorgeous girls in t-shirts and G-strings were smoking cigarettes and brushing their hair and lounging around and whatnot.

I found myself waiting for that door to open just so I could peer into that secret room again where the dancers were relaxing in dishabille. It struck me that I kept looking in because I was hoping to see a girl undressed. I’d get to see every one of these girls buck naked on stage at arms reach, so where was the allure? Go figure.

Then, the Diamond Cabaret remodeled the club interior so that the dressing room was no longer visible from anywhere in the showroom. I could not get over  my disappointment.  I lost interest in the place and now I only go there when it’s time to update my TVO review.
