Centerfolds is An Elegant Old-Time Strip Club
Centerfolds was formerly Club Paradise, an elegant old strip club from the time mobsters owned the strip clubs of Vegas. After the legal problems the Paradise had, the new owner gave the club its new name. If you remember the old Paradise, the remodel has made the club darker, which is an improvement. More intimate and a better lap dance environment.
On a recent Saturday night, I noted that the traffic was picking up and there were a couple dozen dancers in the crowd, most of them decent Vegas-quality.
The minimum price for a drink here for tourists is $18, so don’t just get a domestic beer. Get something you want more. For locals, most drink prices are half price. If you’re ordering beer or well drinks, and you have Nevada ID, always show the bartender or waitress your ID to get locals prices.
I got a tour of the new “blackout rooms,” which is what Centerfolds calls its private rooms. These are located down a private corridor away from the normal club traffic. There are five separate rooms, each one slightly different, but generally dark and having a plush leather sofa or two and a curtain that can be drawn for privacy. I rate the privacy factor in these rooms as excellent, due to the darkness, the curtain and the location away from the traffic.
The price of the blackout room privacy is high — $1000 for the dancer plus a $500 bottle.
Before springing for that, ask the dancer you’re with to show you the available options in the regular VIP room. Here, you’ll find some comfortable couches along one wall that you can curtain off. The curtain is diaphanous, but the darkness of the room adds to the privacy and the hourly rate here is $600 plus a $300 bottle.
The cover charge here is $36 if you’re from out of state, whether you take a cab, use your own transportation, or take the club limo. Locals are always free, provided they don’t take a cab.
This club is an okay deal for locals who stick to beer and $20 lap dances. The drink prices are better than most Vegas topless clubs. If you intend to enjoy private dances, however, you’ll find better deals elsewhere in town.
