Free Food, Drink Specials, and Bountiful Topless Entertainment
Because Nevada is the only state in the U.S. that has legal sports betting, Monday Night Football is huge in Vegas. Every casino with a sports book hosts Monday Night Football parties for its guests, but in recent years the Vegas strip clubs have been throwing the best Monday Night Football parties in town.
What the casinos can offer fans that the strip clubs can’t is betting on the games. What the strip clubs can offer fans that the casinos can’t is bountiful topless entertainment, both during the games and at half-time.
Many gamblers, who used to attend the casino MNF parties, now go to the sports books to place their bets before the games, then go to the strip clubs to watch the games while enjoying the topless dancers.
The regular football season runs from early September through the end of December. If you are in Las Vegas on any Monday night during this four-month period, you can be sure there will be big parties at some of the strip clubs, and a few of them will also have parties for Thursday Night Football and Sunday Night Football.
Typically, a strip club MNF party will feature drink specials, food specials, and sometimes specials on dance prices. Most of the parties will also feature giveaways and prizes for fans that may be anything from team jerseys and IPods to lap dance coupons and flat-screen TVs.
The two most common types of dance specials are half-price lap dances ($10 instead of $20) throughout the game, or $1 lap dances during half-time. Since halftime only lasts ten minutes, the dollar dances are not full-song (three-minute) dances, but shorter dances. Different clubs handle these mini-laps in different ways.
|Pro Tip: If you’re at a strip club MNF party that advertises dollar dances at halftime, be prepared in advance. Change a twenty (or two twenties) for a fistful of dollar bills well before halftime so you can enjoy the full ten minutes of dancers playing musical laps.|
Here’s a quick rundown of what I’ve found so far this year at these clubs’ parties. I’ll update this post as needed throughout the season.
Three Giant Screens and $1 Lap Dances at Sapphire Monday Night Football
Sapphire shows Monday Night Football games on three giant 100″ high-definition screens in their Showroom (club web site). They have the biggest viewing screens in Vegas and the biggest crowds turning out for the games.
Your $20 admission price for the Showroom includes two drinks and an excellent free buffet. Sapphire’s spread for the opening day double-header this year (2016) was incredible—including chicken and rice casserole, mac’n’cheese (worth the price of admission alone), tossed salad, mixed veggies, baked ziti, cilantro rice, chipotle chicken, pork carnitas, steak ala Mexicana, refried beans, yakisoba noodles, terriyaki skewers, crab rolls, sushi, and a desert buffet with virtually every sweet pastry known to man—the best spread in town with food far beyond the usual pizza and wings. Do not expect all of these dishes for every MNF game but that list will give you an idea of the types of dishes you’ll find.
You can also purchase a season pass for $150, which includes admission to the parties for all 16 regular-season Monday night games, plus Sapphire’s Super Bowl extravaganza. The season pass is for the main room parties, and includes two drinks per game, plus the buffet. That comes to only $8.82 a game.
Sapphire will also be hosting Thursday Night Football parties this year in the Showroom. Your $20 admission includes an open bar for the first half of the game.
Most important, for all MNF games the club features the best dollar lap dances at halftime in the Showroom. These are full-fledged, topless, high-contact lap dances with a gorgeous Sapphire dancer who is hoping you’ll choose to keep her in your lap all the way until the game starts again.
The way it works is that literally over a hundred of Sapphire’s lovely dancers pour into the room as soon as halftime starts. The dollar lap dances last 20-30 seconds till the DJ says “switch.” Then one smiling topless girl in lingerie gets up from your lap while another one sits down (unless you give your next dollar to the girl who’s already there).
Sapphire offers their limo for transport to their MNF parties (call 702.869.0003 to book your ride.) The limo reservations fee is $15 but the club will waive the fee if you purchase a buy-1-get-1-free drink coupon or a bottle. And of course there are the gorgeous Sapphire dancers to sample after the game.
For VIP packages with a drink discount for after the MNF party, see the club web site.
Palomino Club – No Cover, Free Food, Drink Specials and Naked Girls
Palomino Club (club review / club website) is hosting MNF parties this year. There’s no cover, assuming you drive yourself or take the free club limo. (Don’t make the mistake of arriving in a cab or a casino limo or you will have to pay the $30 entry fee!) During the game, domestic beer buckets are $30, imports $35, and $8 shots. If you show up in a group, the biggest group gets a free bottle the following week.
I made it to the first MNF double-header and found a free Hawaiian buffet (meatballs in gravy, fried saimin, garlic fried chicken, teriyaki chicken, and Kalbi ribs). Excellent food. There were also drink specials throughout the games. The big draw for me, however – the dancers at Palomino are buck naked, both on stage and in the private dances. Palomino’s outstanding nude stage show was in full swing even during the game, with a couple dozen dancers who could have danced at peak hours.
Treasures MNF Party with Free Buffet
Treasures has $1 drinks from 4-6 pm and half-price drinks from 6-8 pm or buckets of 5 for $12. Free buffet includes soft pretzels, lasagne, sausage & peppers, pizza, hot dogs, chips & salsa, fruit salad, macaroni salad, and potato salad. Good crowd.
$99 Season Pass at Crazy Horse III
Crazy Horse III is offering a season pass for $99. It gets you into CH3’s parties for all NFL and college games on Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays and Monday nights. The pass includes three Bud Lights or two sponsored drinks at each game.
For a single game, you can get free admission (if you don’t arrive by cab). You’ll find free pizza, $5 domestics and mix-and-match domestic buckets at 5/$20.
The games are shown on high def screens with surround sound. I checked it out for the second MNF (Sept 19) and found a very small crowd (maybe a dozen or so customers).
Deja Vu Showgirls Screens All Monday, Thursday and Sunday Night Games
Deja Vu Showgirls (club review) has a Facebook post advertising “Game Day at the Vu” every Monday, Thursday, and Sunday night, with no other details. Here’s the main detail: Deja Vu has been serving free drinks on Monday nights until midnight for some time now and it appears they are continuing with this policy during MNF, and that includes even top shelf liquors. (Expect normal house prices for Thursday and Sunday night games.) Locals are free if you drive yourself. Out-of-towners $22 if you drive yourself, or $45 if you arrive by cab, Uber, casino limo, etc. Light crowd.
Hustler’s MNF Party Free for Locals
Hustler has a limited open bar that includes well drinks and PBR and an advertised buffet. Other beers are $1 and call drinks are $2-$4. Locals free if you have a Vu card and drive yourself. (Vu card is $10.) Out-of-towners always $50. Light crowd on week 2.
Cheetahs MNF Parties with Half-price Laps
Cheetahs (club review) has 5/$12 beer buckets, shots 3/$10, advertising free food, but none there at time of visit (probably pizza). Cheetahs has 2-for $20 lap dances until 7 pm (if you find a dancer who’s willing), and topless dancers on stage during the game. Light crowd on week 2.
OG’s MNF Happy Hour
OG is advertising Monday, Thursday, and Sunday football nights with happy hour drink prices. MNF free buffet includes chicken, vegetable skewers, and mac & cheese. Beers $4. About 4 guys in the football room, half of whom left early. About 4 guys in the other room. No half-time titty blizzard.
Babes MNF Parties with 2-for-$20 Lap Dances
Babes (club review) has announced that they will be screening MNF games, offering $5 pizzas, $1.50 Bud Light pints, and 2-for-1 lap dances during the games.
Play It Again, Sam’s MNF Party in Back Room
Play It Again, Sam has $4 beers and free pizza. They put the big screen TV in the back room, as the topless dancers keep dancing in the main room during the game. You can watch the game on the smaller monitors in the main room, but you can watch it with sound in the back room. No cover.
Striptease had $4 Bud, said food was coming soon. Light crowd. (Okay, empty.)
Spearmint Rhino MNF Party Buffet
Spearmint Rhino has $4 Buds and Bud Lights, plus a free buffet with honey fried chicken & cornbread! Rhino also screens Thursday and Sunday night games with $4 Bud products.
Mondays during football season are the best nights to spend money in Vegas strip clubs if you’re on a budget. You can get your drinking in cheap, and because dancers fly into Vegas from all over the country to work the MNF parties, the dancer selection is good for a Monday.
It’s going to be a great football season.
