The Vegas Strip Clubs on the Comeback (Updated)

Kari Gets Naked at Palomino Club

As of May 1, the Vegas strip clubs can now reopen as strip clubs with dancers permitted to perform topless (or nude in some clubs). Technically, customers are suposed to be wearing masks, but since everyone gets a drink, the masks come off and stay off unless you are walking around in the club. The seats on the rail (stageside) have returned and social distancing requirements are gone. The VIP rooms are open again for one-on-one shows. The clubs are currently limited to 80% capacity, but that’s pretty damn full considering how crowded they become when 100% capacity is allowed.

Most of the clubs are still limiting their hours of operation. I’m getting mixed reports on whether the clubs allow contact and how much in the main rooms. I expect conditions to remain in flux as the clubs discover what the demand is for customers, with many feeling optimistic that the clubs may fully reopen with 100% occupancy and all other restrictions removed come June 1. This remains to be seen.

Here’s a quick rundown of what’s happening in the clubs right now.

Palomino Club, the only fully nude club in Las Vegas with a full bar, once again has naked girls on stage and in the VIPs. Acording to “Jafo,” I was at Palomino on Saturday Night. I got there super early (8:30) but it filled in quickly. Everyone seemed in high spirits and I was very happy with my night. As mentioned on this site, the stage shows there are great fun. The company was even better! I believe per guidelines, I needed a mask to enter and walk around but when seated at a table, I did not. I’d recommend a visit.

Palomino has been advertising Sunday nights as locals night, with select bottles priced at $100 for locals. Check out all of Palomino’s package deals here, or call the club at 702-642-2984 for reservations and more info. Nude, full bar, 21+

Sapphire once again has topless babes. They’re now opening at 8 pm, though I suspect they’ll return to 24/7 hours as the business returns to normal. On this coming Saturday night, they’ll be featuring a Super Middleweight Championship fight between Saul Canelo Alvarez and Billy Joe Saunders.  Book a reservation for that event here or call 702-869-0003.

Sapphire’s Topless Pool has also reopened every Friday, Saturday and Sunday throughout the summer from noon to 6 pm. On Friday, May 7, DJ Tism will be doing a live set. On Saturday, May 8, DJ Earwaxxx will be doing a live set and sizzlin’ Claudia Fijal will be coaching the Summer Swim School. On Sunday, May 9, Mothers’ Day!, FLOW will be doing a live DJ set and all mothers will be served free mimosas from noon till 2 pm.

To reserve a lounge chair or any other pool package for the VIP deck, daybeds or cabanas, click here, or call for the limo, more info or anything else at 702-869-0003. Topless, full bar, 21+

Treasures has been opening at 9 pm each night with topless babes and their steakhouse has been serving food all night long. Call (702) 257-3030 for their complimentary limo. Topless, full bar, 21+

Deja Vu Showgirls is once again topless and they still feature $2 Tuesdays for those who like to indulge in highend booze at a ridiculously low price. Call (702) 894-4167 for their free limo. Topless, full bar, 21+

Little Darlings once again has naked girls on stage and in the VIPs. Since Little D’s doesn’t serve alcohol, guests are permitted at age 18+ and the dancers also only have to be 18. Call 702-366-1141 for reservations, more info, etc. Nude, no alcohol, 18+

Crazy Horse III is back with topless babes. CH3 will be screening the Canelo/Saunders fight on Saturday, May 8. Doors open at 6 pm. Reserve a seat for this event for $59 here. The price includes admission, transpotation and two $25 beverage vouchers. Sounds like a good deal. Call 702-673- 1700 for more info.

Hustler Club is open with topless girls again. On Friday, May 7, the club will feature Instagram babe Sydney Chase. Also, every Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, the Sexxy After Dark show takes over the main stage at 9:30 pm. (See review here.) See also our report of Hustler’s crazy deal for the fully vaxxed to get free booze and free “Beaver Bucks” (dance dollars) here. Call the club for reservations or free transport at (702) 795-3131. Topless, full bar, 21+

Spearmint Rhino is open Thurs – Sunday only, opening at 9 pm each night, though I expect they will go to 7 days a week soon. Call the club at (702) 796-3600 for more info. Topless, full bar, 21+

Scores is back up and running with topless dancers. This club was starting to make a splash as a major player in the Vegas strip club scene featuring well-known porn stars on many nights. Call (702) 916-1499 for reservations, info, etc. Topless, full bar, 21+

A new nude club, Eve’s Cabaret and Hookah Lounge, has just opened at 3177 S. Highland. This was the prior location of Diamond Cabaret. It is being announced on Scores Facebook page, so I suspect it is under the same ownership/management. It’s located just a block north of Scores on Highland. When it was the Diamond Cabaret, I reviewed it as primarily a private show club where guests could get private dances. The stage show was minimal and there were very few dancers. This may have changed with Scores involvement. Scores itself was formerly Foxy Girls, a small locals dive which has since been vastly renovated and expanded. Hours: Eve’s opens at 8 pm, Thurs – Sat. Call Eve’s at 702-731-2365 for more info. Nude, no alcohol, 18+

Centerfolds has reopened with topless dancers. Centerfolds is advertising “burlesque” shows on the weekends. Sunday nights, they feature $2 drinks and on Mondays, $100 bottles. Call (702) 767-8757 for free limo, reservations, etc. Topless, full bar, 21+

Play It Again Sam, the only remaining Vegas strip club with bartop video poker, once again has its topless dancers back. This is a small locals club known for $15 buckets of beer. No limo service and no reservations needed. Call (702) 876-1550 for more info. Topless, full bar, 21+

Minks is back with topless dancers. This is a locals club on the east edge of Vegas near Henderson. They have been open weekends only for a while, but are now going to seven days a week. Good food and beer pong on Wednesdays. Call (702) 435-7545 for more info. Topless, full bar, 21+

    I’m hoping Sapphire goes back to 24/7 on June 1, or at least adds an afternoon happy hour.

    Hey Arnold,
    Do you have any club visits planned to write updated reviews/pricing? Such as free rides, no cover, happy hours/drink prices. Deja Vu is showing $2 Tuesday on their website with free transportation but is pretty vague about cover – there is a download for a VIP pass. Palomino shows free rides beginning 4 pm now but doesn’t mention free cover before 8 pm like it used to be. I did find one place on their site that says 2 drink minimum paid when entering. Sapphire is still showing 8 pm – 4 am and free ride but no info about cover. I’d love to hear some trip reports from readers as well. I’m coming out in June and assuming I get to some clubs, I’ll definitely write up my experience. Thanks!

      Nunya: The conditions in the strip clubs are in flux. I assume that the town will get back to somewhat normal in the not-too-distant future, in which case I’ll recheck prices and policies, etc. I’m looking forward to your report. I hope more TVO readers will submit trip reports as that’s the best way to keep up-to-date when everything is going through changes.

        Per clark county govt website C19 restrictions will end June 1. “The local COVID-19 mitigation plan will expire June 1, allowing for the return of pre-pandemic guidelines that lift restrictions involving capacity limits, large gatherings and more, the Clark County Commission decided today”

      Been to little darlings a few times this month. Still no cover before 8pm ($18 after that), and still a great full nude stage show. Not nearly as many girls as the old days, but noticed already a bunch of new girls as they frantically hire. At 8 there are only a couple/few girls, but they continue to trickle in through midnight. Snot diapers still required for entry, but do not need to be worn. Most girls pull their masks down and show their pretty faces. Prices up a little, $9 for a bottle of water, and $140 for 15 minute vip. 30 minute and hour vip still 250 and 400. Full nude lap dances also available for $20, but touching requires a tip for these. Also, still no cover all night for locals on Mondays.

    Which night between Monday or Tuesday would be best for visiting Palominos. We will be there beginning of June. What time should we get there to have the best chance of sitting at the rail? If we book a table, can we leave the table to sit at the rail and it will stay reserved? My husband and I are going and are interested in getting a vip room, does anyone know the rates for couples right now? Thanks!

  4. Bill

    Yeah I actually called yesterday myself and was coming back to post. Talk of the town is open but they said they need to get girls so it is not full go yet. Hopefully soon but who knows with Biden planning to give more covid bucks.

  5. Alex

    This is great news. We’ll be there in July. My GF and I always love to sit at the rail at the Palomino. In our opinion sitting at the rail is the way to go there as you get nice close up views, especially if you tip well, which we do.

    • Arnold Snyder

      Bill: The adult store section of Talk of the Town is now open. I just spoke with Pistol, the owner/mgr, and he says the dancers will be back as soon as he has enough girls lined up. He couldn’t estimate a date, so we’ll have to keep an eye on it.

  6. Aaron

    Reading this blog post made me smile… Going to hit the clubs over the UFC 264 weekend in July.

    • Aaron

      Anyone know if lap dances have returned? If so what is the current going rate?

      • 808forever

        Went to Palomino last weekend; no lap dances there. Not sure if other clubs are trying to test the distancing limit.

        In other news, Red Rock is now allowed to go 100% as of tonight due to death jabs. Unlike Wynn and Cosmo, no coercion/threats were used; raffles of $1000 were held for those who showed proof of the jab.

      • Jafo

        Aaron, now that you mention it, when I was at Palomino, I cannot say I saw any floor dances taking place. Seemed like all the ladies would talk/flirt on the main floor before whisking away patrons upstairs…The VIP rates Arnold posted (for the 30 min/no booze) are still valid based on personal experience.

  7. Nunya

    I contacted Sapphire online and asked if they would be having adult film stars back this summer. The answer was ‘Yes’ at the pool and unknown at the club at this time. I also asked if they would be returning to 24/7 hours or afternoons with happy hour drink prices etc – answer was TBD. I’m coming out in early June so hoping for the best.

      About nunyas comment I didn’t go into full detail about overall so not sure but I did talk to sapphire yesterday and asked about events for the weekend of the 4th of July and they said they don’t have anything set in stone but the name they gave me was Lindsey pelas as who they were having that weekend another what I consider pseudo celebrity of the Instagram variety (I think). I’m a bit concerned they are going that direction instead, though it really hasn’t made much of a difference to me who they had and the main point of my convo was to see if they were doing a special night event like 2 years ago which was a probably not

  8. Cake

    Hey man, thanks for updating. Will you be going to each one and updating stuff?

    Also for minks, what did you mean beer pong on Wednesdays? They do like special events or something?


    • Arnold Snyder

      Cake: Don’t know what the beer pong deal is at Minks. Just saw an announcement they posted on their facebook page with no details.
