[Larry’s Villa CLOSED permanently in Sept 2016.]

A Friendly Neighborhood Titty Bar

This is a blue-collar bar in a run-down neighborhood. [NOTE:  Larry’s Villa has lost its liquor license and closed down as of 9/24/16 over various fights in the club and parking lot.]

The club is very casual, with a T-shirt and jeans crowd, and the stage dancers all look like neighborhood girls. No silicone in here. The dancers, mostly cute girls in their twenties, have a sweet attitude and they all get tipped on stage. The neighborhood boys like the neighborhood girls, especially when they show their titties.

None of the girls here are great dancers and you wouldn’t see any of them in the top-end clubs. They’re an equal mix of white, black, and Latina, and there’s a fair amount of excess body fat on a few of them. A number of older women also work the crowd for lap dances. I haven’t seen these older women dance on stage. Lap dances occur in the VIP room only, not out on the main floor.

The decor here isn’t pretentious. There’s an old-fashioned runway stage and the lighting is much better than in most topless joints. No flashy high-tech “gentlemen’s club” crap here—I doubt any of the customers in here would ever refer to themselves as “gentlemen.” These are bikers and truck drivers and tradesmen just sitting around having some beers with their buds after work.

The First Topless Club in Vegas

Larry’s Villa is the oldest topless club in Las Vegas, operating in the same location since 1972. The founder, Larry LaPenta, died a couple years ago at the age of 84. He was a real character and in the last couple years before his death, he started a storefront nondenominational church—Thomas Paine’s Church of God and Common Sense. He may have been the only person in America who simultaneously owned and operated both a church and a strip club. Only in Las Vegas …

I like this place, which doesn’t pretend to be anything it’s not. It’s a titty bar with cute topless dancers, cheap beer, and no cover charge. If you’re not crazy about the dancer on stage, you can play video poker on the bartop or watch whatever sporting event might be showing on the TV screens over the bar.

Sapphire (club website) offers busty, long-legged beauties by the hundreds (400+ during peak evening hours). This elegant club is a babe bacchanal, with the wildest lap dance scene in town.

Treasures (club website) is the most luxurious of the high-mileage Vegas topless clubs, populated with stacked 9s and 10s who know how to pamper a man.

      The City Council has just rescinded the liquor license and all other licenses for Larry’s Villa over the number of police calls for conflicts in the club and parking lot.

    I stopped by last week and was greeted at the door by a bouncer that “patted” me down prior to letting me in. It is very dark inside and hard to see anyone, including the dancer on stage. I took a walk around and the DJ and the dancer on stage gave me a look like “what are you doing in here”. And they were right! I am not a local and was clearly out of place so I left.

    The parking lot was dark but the club is easy to find next to Popeye’s Chicken.

    It’s been a long time since I’ve stopped in here but there’s usually no dancers after 5am and they probably don’t start showing up again until late afternoon.
