Diamond Cabaret is a very small club. It was recently renovated during the “emergency” lockdown in Nevada. New GM Rick M. gave TVO a tour in May of 2022. They improved look in the main room by putting in floor-to-ceiling mirrors on two walls (making the place look much bigger than it is), adding a DJ booth, and putting in more comfortable chairs. Cabs are always parked out front whenever TVO has driven by, and we’re pretty sure that most of the business here consists of tourists brought in by taxi.
Diamond Cabaret is a club for guys who want a private one-on-one VIP room experience with a dancer. Upstairs, a set of about ten VIP booths are clean and comfortable. The rooms are small, and secluded. Each cubicle has an opaque curtain at the entry, which you can close. The club is clean and lit well.
A dancer is always on stage and the stage dancers take it all off, but if ten dancers are in the club, only three or four actually perform on stage—the others do private-room shows only. So, if you’re going to a Vegas strip club to watch a stage show, this is not a great choice for you.
Here’s how it works: You pay your entry fee and as soon as you’re seated, your drink order will be taken—they do not have a full bar. After you get your drink, a dancer will join you and give you a “tour”—which means she’ll take you into one of the private rooms and show you how private it is when she closes the curtain.
You’ll sit down on the couch with her to discuss your options and a host (female) will come into the room to explain pricing. In the past it was $300 for 30 minutes, $400 for 45 minutes, and $500 for an hour.
If you decline and go back to your seat, another dancer will approach you. On a 2019 visit, the second dancer offered TVO some better deals—a $40 lap dance for the $20 “locals price,” 15 minutes in the VIP for $150, 20 minutes for $200, or 25 minutes for $250. She then said she could stretch the VIP room time by an extra five minutes— TVO could get 20 minutes for the 15-minute price, or 30 minutes for the 25-minute price.
Pre-Covid the advice was “Don’t Take a Credit Card to Diamond Cabaret.”
If you read the comments in earlier TVO reviews, you’ll find complaints about the hustle at Diamond Cabaret. Here is a quote: “It was the single most high pressure I have ever felt in a club in my life.”
But the worst complaints Pre-Covid was from who use credit cards at this club. Here’s a quote from “Wally:”
Beware beware beware — This place charged us $4,000 for a 30-minute private dance, had us sign documents which we could not see or read and then when confronted with the fraud, threatened violence unless we left. Don’t give them a credit card — they will charge recklessly.
To be fair to the new management team … in May 2022 they were transparent, open and willing to share their plans for a well-run club. Travelers should verify, not trust.
Best of luck to all, patrons, dancers, staff and management.
Stick with a great club…..
I will be taking over their marketing and social media. The owners sold the Bus Stop in Colorado to developers which is kind of sad because I started dancing there 9 years ago in college.
A lot of positive changes. They have better on site managers, a full renovation and new dancers. Labor Day Weekend will be a huge kickoff for that.
Thanks, Jade. I’ll come in and check it out Labor Day weekend.
Having been a dancer at the Diamond Cabaret and it’s sister club in Boulder, Colorado (The Bus Stop which is now closed.) I would point out that it has new management now. The owner is retiring and it should be a more professionally run club. There is also a possibility that VCG may be buying it to get into the Vegas market.
Thanks, Jade. I’ll give the club another look.
I will be taking over their social media and helping with marketing. A lot of changes. Ownership was too extended and let a lot of things go. They sold the Bus Stop in Colorado which is where I started dancing 9 years ago.
I recommend coming back after Labor Day as all of the changes will have been fully implemented. 3 song stage sets and a small area for private dances.
The Diamond Cabaret website says that they’re under new management. Anyone been lately? My favorite dancer just switched to there and said I should come see her, but I’m not too keen on living out one of these horror stories… Looks like they still charge a cover fee for locals after 10pm.
Jay, I heard about new management at Diamond Cabaret a couple of years ago, before recent bad reviews by commenters. I haven’t heard about another change in management and am skeptical.
But ultimately the reason for the hard sell and gouging is the business model. I don’t see how that could have changed.
BEWARE BEWARE BEWARE — THIS PLACE CHARGED US $4,000 FOR
A 30 MINUTE PRIVATE DANCE, HAD YOU SIGN DOCUMENTS WHICH
YOU COULD NOT SEE OR READ AND THEN WHEN CONFRONTED
WITH THE FRAUD, THREATENED VIOLENCE UNLESS WE LEFT.
DON’T GIVE THEM A CREDIT CARD — THEY WILL CHARGE RECKLESSLY.
Wally, thanks for sharing this info with others. I’ve added a warning to the top of our review and will likely revise.
Everyone should take a look at our article on scams to watch out for in strip clubs.
I’d feel safe using a credit card at the clubs on our best Las Vegas strip clubs page, but many guys feel it’s never safe to bring a credit card to any strip club because of rogue dancers who may be passing through to work the scam discussed in the article.
Plus, most Vegas strip clubs add a hefty surcharge if you use your credit card to buy dances.
To play it safe, just bring the cash you intend to spend.
That place is a total rip off, i dont recommend it at all!! The whole Time they were just trying to make more money and like the Review of Barry Said, During the 30 min the House mom Comes in – Killing the vibe by Putting Pressure on you in tipping. Dont go there, there r way better Clubs!
I haven’t been in this club for a while. Thanks for your update.
this review could not be more opposite from my experience. it was the single most high pressure I have ever felt in a club in my life. $300 for vip where two songs in the house mom comes back to try to get more cash out of you along with the girl that says she works for tips and her prices start at $1,000.00! “The amount you tip me will tell me how much fun you want to have”. When I tried to say at the beginning I wanted to just sit out in front for a little bit first I was repeatedly told “I’m the only girl here, so we might as well get started”. After the request for $1000, I just left. The place is a joke. The only thing in this review that is even remotely accurate is that it is most definitely NOT a locals club. The only reason I went was to see if it was suitable for a bachelor party for some friends coming in from out of town and they were asking specifically about the club.Absolute worst club in town without a doubt.
