Club Platinum is the Smallest Gentlemen’s Club in Vegas
Not too many years ago when this place was called the Tender Trap, it was just a little locals titty bar with one small stage, two or three dancers, and a jukebox.
It’s one of only two strip joints in Las Vegas with video poker. Seven machines. That’s a great amenity!
In 2017 John Taffer and Bar Rescue came in and did their “magic.”
Now, the jukebox has been replaced by a DJ, the lighting has been redone to the modern gentlemen’s club standard—very dark, with the requisite flashing red and blue spots—and the main floor area is crammed with comfy lap-dance chairs.
Eight to ten dancers now work here on the weekends, instead of two or three. The net result? It’s still a little locals titty bar, a place to relax and have an inexpensive beer and watch friendly neighborhood girls strut their stuff around the little stage.
This whole club is about the size of my kitchen and gets maybe 20 customers on a weekend night. It’s pretty well located, so I’m sure it gets a few tourists who see the joint when they’re just driving by on Flamingo. One veteran dancer told me it’s about 50/50 tourists to locals.
As for the remodel job, I’m not crazy about the throbbing, flashing, high-tech gentlemen’s club look to begin with, but there’s something deeply wrong with this motif in a place about the size of a der Wienerschnitzel. This club gets the “Smallest High-Tech Gentlemen’s Club in Vegas” award. It’s like a miniature of a major Vegas gentlemen’s club. When Doctor Evil is cavorting with the lap dancers at Sapphire, you can be sure Mini-Me is right at home at Club Platinum.
Ask for Lynn for great conversation and a terrific dance. She’s a joy and the heart of this local club. However, the bouncers are strict about your hand contact. “Keep them to yourself,” is their refrain.
Next to the Tuscany. Walkable from the strip area around Caesars.
It’s a comfortable place to hang out!
