Fully Nude, Full Bar
Palomino Club is the only strip club in Vegas to feature both nude dancers and a full bar. Because it was licensed for both booze and naked girls before the county passed more restrictive laws, the nude dancing and full bar were grandfathered in, making this club truly one-of-a-kind in Vegas. It combines the best features of both the nude and topless clubs.
For example, most of the topless clubs in Vegas charge customers an additional bar tab for time spent in the VIP room. The nude clubs don’t since they don’t sell drinks. Although Palomino serves liquor, the club goes with the nude clubs on this policy and they charge customers no extra bar tab in their VIP rooms. That means you get a great deal on private dances at this club.
The Vegas nude clubs usually have better stage shows, with better stage lighting and better dancing than the topless clubs, which typically have small dark stages and girls limited to simple bump-and-grind moves. Palomino has two large well-lit stages with lots of rail seats, each with two poles, both at the perfect height for watching (and getting attention from) the exceptionally talented (and naked) dancers.
But the thing that makes Palomino Club a truly outstanding strip club is its dancers. Think 130+ girls who look like they just stepped out of a Victoria’s Secret catalog, and they all get fully naked on stage and in private shows.
Palomino Club’s Wild Stage Show
The stage show at Palomino Club is so good that I recommend it as the best erotic stage show in Las Vegas. Think erotic acrobatics and pole dancing with multiple dancers on stage on multiple poles, girl-on-girl shows and Las Vegas’ hottest striptease. Palomino Club is the place to go if you want to see dancers who can truly dance.
And although customers must be 21 or older to be admitted to Palomino Club, the dancers only have to be 18. That age allowance was grandfathered in with the nude dancing and drinking allowance. That means Palomino has a high percentage of scrumptious college-age girls.
The dancers really loosen up in the high-mileage nude dances in the club’s private curtained booths and private bedrooms. And imagine the creative positions you can get into in the club’s luxury private bedrooms.
Palomino also has a more intimate feel than most of the high-tech topless joints that have been taking over the Vegas strip club scene for the past 20 years, and I like that. Its layout and lighting are grounded in classic striptease. The drive lately in the Vegas clubs has been to make clubs flashy and “space-age,” where the club itself is the show and the dancers are just decorations. Palomino’s more about giving 130+ of the best and most beautiful erotic dancers in Las Vegas a real stage where they can show their stuff.
Palomino Club has been one of my regular stops for quite a few years now. I love this club.
Best Drink Deals in Vegas for Locals & Out-of-Towners Alike
Another plus at Palomino: The booze price is the same for every customer, whether you’re a local or from out-of-town, every hour the club is open.
Still, the major draw for most customers will be the fact that you can watch 100-130+ toned, young, consistently beautiful nude dancers while simultaneously drinking an adult beverage.
Great Package Deals
With a package deal, you’ll lock-in free limo transport, and get a reserved VIP table for the night. That’s a real value at this club, which gets packed at peak hours. With a reserved VIP table, you won’t lose your table if you leave it for a private nude show in the VIP or private rooms. And top dancers head straight for the VIP tables after they leave the stage.
If you don’t see a package that’s right for you, the club is good about coming up with custom packages. Just call 702-327-7258 (back-up number 702-642-2984) and tell them what you’re looking for or go to the club website and fill out the online form. You can also purchase a package at the door.
The Palomino Penthouse – Private VIP Rooms
A couple of years ago Palomino opened private “theme rooms” upstairs (in the area the club calls “The Penthouse”) that are very plush and totally private, with opaque-curtained doorways.
These rooms are for 30-minute and 60-minute nude private shows only. I recommend you read my post How to Negotiate in a Vegas Strip Club. It tells you how to get the dancer’s most reasonable price for a private dance at any club in town.
All Palomino theme rooms have adjustable lighting and their own sound systems that allow the customer to choose the music and volume.
Recently I spent time talking to a man who owns the record for “Longest VIP Session” in the history of the Palomino Club. That’s a legacy that traces back to the founding of the northside club in 1969! Read about that session here.
I am heading to palominos for a bachelor party on a friday. I was wondering if floor lapdances are a thing again at this club?
Yes Alan … Palomino has floor dances. The best in town I believe.
Ask for Adam G, Adam W or Keith. Tell them Mr. TVO sent you. You’ll be glad you did!
Also… Wednesday, April 12th at 7pm is the Miss Palomino Contest.
Dope! I’ve actually been in touch with keith over scheduling issues we were having. Really nice and accommodating guy!
Dope! Ive actually spoken to keith and he is super nice and helped make accommodations for my group. Thank you!
My wife and I did our annual Palomino visit on Monday night March 27. Drove our own vehicle (visiting from Phoenix) and arrived at 8:15pm. Cover was $30 each and included two free drinks. This was too early when there is no big game or sporting event on TV. When the 6 girls started over again after 45 minutes and we were still the only ones there (and tipping) I suggested to the DJ that they take a break. He agreed and the girls were very happy. More talent showed up and now there were 10. While the girls at Palomino are cute, I find that because they show pussy, the tits are rarely that good. Also, if you’re a couple, the girls may be reluctant to come over unless you make eye contact with them. I think we’ll skip Palomino next time in search of more C cups. By 11pm there were 20 dancers but the best were tied up with customers and never made it on stage. Advice to married couples, don’t arrive before 9pm and plan on making the first move when you see a girl that interests you.
what if I have an airbnb 15min away can they pick my group up form there? and does the best of both worlds package come with vip seating?
I say yes…. and I’m in charge!
Seriosly.. call the club and ask Adam Workman.
Hi there! I love the website!
My wife and I will be visiting Vegas and Palomino for the first time in early February. We will be visiting Palomino on a Saturday night.
I’ll probably reserve a table just so we always have a place to sit, but we want to arrive early enough to be able to sit at the rail for a a while. What time would you recommend arriving to ensure we can get a couple of rail seats together? My wife is also a bit nervous about showing up too early and being the only ones there (I’m assuming vegas on a Saturday night, this won’t be the case), but wanted to see if you have an opinion on how early might be “too early?”
Thanks Chris, I appreciate the kind words. Palomino is a great choice.
If ypour goal is a ral spot for just awhile that won’t be a problem because people come and go. Get your table, hand a twenty to a host and he’ll take care of a variety of ‘asks” like a rail spot. If you’re there before 9-10pm you should be golden.
Tell them you talked to ToplessVegas…. ask to say hi to Adam G or W or Keith.
Have fun and let us know how it goes!
Hey Chris! What a coincidence! My wife and I are going to be at Palomino that very same Saturday night! It’ll actually be our first strip club experience together. Feel free to reach out if you wanna say hi at the club
A few questions on Palomino as I haven’t been there since before Covid. Been to Vegas a number of times since then but have been hanging out at Sapphire and Peppermint Hippo.
Solo package is gone for good, I assume?
Will they pick you up solo if you join in on another groups trip (assuming they have room in the shuttle)?
How much is cover, and does it still include 2-3 drinks?
Do they still have 3 for $100 private dances?
How much is the 15 minute and 30 minute private?
How much are the special rooms and how much bottle required?
Thanks for the help – might be coming out soon and thinking of switching things up and/or adding a night at Palomino.
Whoa…. that’s too many questions for me! I’ll fuck up for sure.
Palomino is super accommodating. They to transport solos but I’m sure they’ll try and get you in a party van if it works out.
Call Adam Workman at the club. 702.642.2984
Solo shuttle shouldn’t be a problem, I know they still do the 3 for 100 at least as of July. Didn’t price out any higher then that the night I was there
question: apx#girls mid-week, apx #girls weekends … at LD, Palomino, Sapphires?
Back from Vegas, here are my thoughts… will be very long, so the moderator can break it up, move or edit as needed. Note these are unfiltered and honest, from a rookie and out of towner perspective, so a big YMMV on any of the topics covered. Not sure if the club itself reads your page.
First, I had signed up online for their 2 (couples) package. Easy. That was the only time I used my credit card, while we were there, all cash. It was $179 with the early online discount, and no other charges showed up on my card. We got the champagne. More on this later.
Our driver was Dave, he texted me well in advance, and was one of the highlights of the night. At that time (8pm from the TI) we were his only clients – same on the way back, actually. Super awesome guy with a big smile. On time, easy to find, all around a great experience.
Arrived at the club around 8:20 or so, an easy entry. Didn’t think about it, but don’t forget your ID. Luckily my wife had hers. All the staff at the club was nice, no complaints. Was very empty – we were either the first table to be seated, or maybe the second with one on the other side. Maybe 3 people were on the rail. My wife definitely felt awkward at first, especially the first time one of the girls walked over to try and chat with us. That happened about 3 times at the start, then they started to leave us alone. They definitely followed the “where are you from” script I saw on your page. They certainly pushed for the upstairs VIP dances. But I never felt they were too aggressive, as I totally get that’s how they make money. It is their job. My wife just felt a little awkward to have a strange, half naked girl come up and sit next to her. But as the night went on, she figured out once we said we weren’t interested, they kindly walked away. My wife never felt comfortable enough to do any of the VIP stuff, and after the first 30 minutes, they stopped asking. Only one more girl asked a few hours later. I know I read a lot of google reviews saying the girls were too pushy; I never thought that, I just assume they are doing their job, and once we nicely said no, they were fine. They also were on the ball enough to know to sit next to my wife, never me, nor on my lap.
We spent probably about 3 hours or slightly more there, leaving around 11:30. We had never planned to stay all night, we are not night owls, and I had a drive back home early the next morning. We were testing the waters. It slowly filled up, but even when we left, only a third of the tables were occupied, and maybe 7-8 people at a time around the rail. We noticed most of the other tables never tipped. We tried to tip every dancer, not always a lot, but something. I finally was able to get my wife to go up and place some tips towards the end. We generally tipped the best for the dancers who performed the best pole routine. Some dancers had excellent pole moves, some almost none. We kind of viewed this as a show, entertainment, so we tipped for the acrobatics. I was assuming many of the dancers were probably saving their energy for later when they could make more money; however, a few seemed to go all out even with almost no one there. I’m terrible with names, but I remember a blond petite girl and another petite girl with glasses (and a lot of tattoos) were our favorites.
As mentioned, my wife never felt comfortable enough to do any VIP. I did have to go to the bar a few times for more singles, and they were awesome about it. Easy. The clientele was interesting, maybe what you would expect, maybe not? We always felt safe in the club. My wife commented several times as least 1/3 of the folks were ladies, maybe more. In fact the best tipper of the night on the rail was a woman! I guess that surprised me, but it was fun to watch her tip. The DJ appeared to change about half way through our time there, and I very much liked the DJ the second half better. The first half was too much rap for my taste, the second was more of latest hits overall. Maybe just the luck of the draw?
As mentioned, we pulled chalks around 11:30. I texted our driver around 11:10, and he texted me when he was there are ready to go. Again, awesome driver experience. I made sure to leave another tip for our server, then we left. I actually left the bottle at the table. So about that – I totally get businesses make most of their money on alcohol. And they have to make money, that’s their job. But my wife and I just don’t drink much – I actually fully admit to liking places like Fat Tuesday, fruity watered down drinks. Because they are cold and refreshing. My wife can’t even handle hard stuff without getting sick, so we literally each finished one glass they poured, and left the rest. I would be curious if the club could do a 2’s package with something else? They did bring us free water bottles and diet coke. But for next time, I would wonder if I could get a couple’s package with something else for folks who aren’t big drinkers. Even if it cost the same, a big pitcher of strawberry something would hit the spot.
Now the one big downside, and I knew this would be an issue going in – the smoking. I’m not here to tell folks what to do, but just to say some of us don’t like it. If you aren’t used to it, it can be difficult to deal with. Cats out of the bag, I’m in CA, and we don’t have to deal with smoking here. It gets in your clothes, hair, and is thoroughly unpleasant. Luckily we came early, and the club was fairly well AC’d / ventilated, but as the club started to fill, it obviously got worse. I doubt a non smoking club could make it in Nevada, but if there was, let me know. Ok, enough on that soap box.
The dancers: As stated, I can’t remember names to save my life. I’m more of a petite fan, and my wife liked any that did the crazy antics on the pole. Most of the time those actually were the same. I do wish they had a bit more diversity – we have loved to see some Asians in there, but I suppose the club can only hire whomever actually applies. So my favorites were a petite blonde, a girl with glasses and tattoos (I actually don’t care for tattoos, it was just coincidental), and a gal with pig tails. Sorry, that’s all I can think as description. One odd thing, a few girls left some of their tips up there – including the blonde. They scooped up some, but either didn’t see or didn’t care, and left some here or there. The next girl would get them.
Cost: As stated, we paid $179. Going from memory, tips for the driver were $55 total – I tipped him each way. Tips for the server were $15 total, we didn’t really order anything after we sat down – just the initial diet coke and water. I’m not exactly sure, but I’m guessing around $50 in tips for the dancers over the three hours – we never sat on the rail. I’m thinking we didn’t tip enough, but as stated, other tables tipped nada. Live and learn. So the entire 3 plus hour evening cost us $299. Honestly, not bad for three hours of entertainment. The Michael Jackson show the night before cost more for two of us, and lasted only an hour and a half. different to be sure, but just as a comparison.
So the question is, would we do it again?
My answer was yes, absolutely. I thought my wife would tell me the next day she didn’t want to do it again. Surprisingly, she actually told me she absolutely wanted to go again next time we are in Vegas. She even said she thought she would be ready to try a VIP. Maybe. But for us, we would see if we could get an alternative drink in the $200 package, and we would go even earlier – maybe 6pm at open – and leave around 11pm. Yes, I’m sure the dancers have less energy. But the tradeoffs for us would be worth it. The only other comment – is there a ladies night, full nude? And why not? There must be enough ladies in Vegas for someone to make money on that, and it only seems fair to take my wife to that as well. I know she would love that. So there you go, a long review. Thanks!
Glad to hear you had a good time Dan, the girls do tend to leave you alone after an initial barrage, which id prefer the opposite, I’m generally looking to go upstairs later I like to get my barings and enjoy the show first but it seems like they dont know this and hit you up right away.
Thanks Dan for the outstanding review.
I bet Palomino is wondering why they don’t have a no or low alcohol package.
If you want to be in a no alcohol environment … consider Little Darlings. They are a no alcohol club.
Yeah little darlings would be a good choice and unless things have changed you just walk in with cover and can almost always find a open table, possibly not after midnight on a weekend but for the most part plenty of open tables
I actually don’t mind alcohol in the club, I just don’t think either the bottle or the champagne works for us. We literally left most of the bottle on the table. I’m just more of a alcohol slushy fan. Even a pitcher of daiquiri would be much better. But I did really like having our reserved table.
I’ve tried to read through the sections on Palomino and the comments, but there are a lot, so I apologize if I missed some of what I’m asking. My wife and I want to try going to Palomino, and it will be our first time.
They have a couples package, it includes a limo ride, a bottle of champagne (Cham Paggin if you are a Zapp Brannigan fan), entry, and a table. My wife and I are not heavy drinkers – so is the package really worth it? If you just show up, wouldn’t it be cheaper? I’m not clear on where you would sit if you just show up, as the package includes a table, correct? We probably would like to sit in the middle, not in the front. We want to figure out what’s going on, so to speak. So is the table a good value? I admit I have no idea how valuable that is, as I don’t know what you do if you don’t have a table.
Will the girls performing expect tips from a table in the middle? If so, what is a good tip amount when you aren’t in the front? Assuming my wife enjoys the place, we plan to stay for about 2 hours – probably arrive around 8pm on a Tuesday. How busy will that be? (Sorry, we aren’t night owls!) If she really enjoys it, we might get a private room for half an hour – if I did the reading correctly, that should be $250, and if they give a price substantially higher, we don’t negotiate, we just politely say no? We do not really want a bottle, as again, we aren’t heavy drinkers, so just anything with a bottle charge wouldn’t make sense. I guess any general advice you can give us would be helpful. I was thinking that if we pay ahead for the couple package, then I just need cash for the main room tips, and possibly for the 30 minutes. Would 350 cover it? I honestly have no idea, but I want to set a budget ahead. Will the girl in a private setting make sure my wife enjoys the show? Do we bring our champagne with us, leave it at the table, and is the table still ours when we go back out?
Last question, does the free ride include a limo back to the strip? How do we get that ride when we are ready to leave?
My thoughts on this last time I was there I paid 35 to get in and that gave 2 drinks with it, problem is for you most of the tables are reserved, we didn’t care so much as we spent much of our night seated on the stage or standing against the wall or near the bar, if it’s a weekend might be hard to get a table without the reservation but I don’t really try too hard. For the Limo back as long as you tip the driver decently they will tell you to text them about 20-30 minutes before you wanna leave.
Thanks Dan. Happy that you are coming to town.
Erik is on target. At 8pm on a weeknight you shouldn’t have trouble getting a table. My favorite spot is at the stage because the dancers are the best in town. If you get a table, try for close to stage. It’s easy to get up and take a few steps to tip. Most customers do.
I can’t gauge the value of bottle service for you. It sounds like a $350 budget on ala carte will be fine. One suggestion… explore the club. I love the quiet lounge upstairs as a good getaway. It might be slow that early on a weeknight .. but stretch out. Meet a manager and ask for a tour. They believe in long term customer relationships. If they think you’ll return they’ll invest time in the relationship.
Have fun…. and share a report with us. You are among friends!
I’ll probably still do the couples package just to try it out. I really just wasn’t sure how far $350 (or so) cash can go. I saw your listing that said the 30 min private dance is $250, but then saw people reporting $400 has been recently been asked. What services are bottles required for? For any 15 or 30 minute private dance?
A tour though sounds like a great idea!
Last dumb question – what is a good tip for the driver? An actually, who else do you guys tip (besides the girls)?
Re tips: If you get help from a host…tip him, certainly your server.
Re: Limo back to hotel…. if Fremont from Palomino, $15-20. If Strip… $25-$40.
I’ll be in Vegas next month, for three nights, and will have a lady friend join me. SO, I was wondering if Palomino is still the best joint for couples. Also, which other clubs provide a great experience for couples?
Frankly…all of the major clubs do a great job for couples. Mrs TVO has enjoyed Treasures, Sapphire, Centerfolds, Hustler, Crazy Horse 3, Scores, Palomino and Peppermint Hippo.
We find the shows are a great way to ease into the evening.
See the shows in the Review section of the menu.
I enjoy buying the package deal because they keep your table all night. I’ve been there 4 hours+ with many dances upstairs and my drinks and chairs were always there waiting for me. If you do buy a package, make sure to do it online (you get 10% off, so ~179 for the couples package).
The main floor is not that large square footage wise, so as others said, its very easy to stand up, take a step, and chuck some money on the stage (I try to tip every dancer unless some lady is sitting with me chatting – in that case, I make them tip the dancer ;-))
PS-if you see an epic jackass in a white blazer next Tuesday, that’s probably me haha
Do you know if Palomino is doing anything for NFL sunday nights this year? I believe they had something last year, opening at 4 pm or so. Thanks!
Yes…Palomino will resume Sunday night Football, opening early at 5pm. Free food, no cover charge prizes and giveaways, KOMP 92.3 comes as well and gives stuff away.They’ll be doing it again starting Sunday September 11th opening early at 5pm.
Arnold, love this site, is there any way to reverse the comments so the most recent show first? it would be useful to have current comments first instead of starting with 2014. Keep up the great work, thanks again.
I’m sure that’s possible. Thanks Steven. I’ll check out how.
I have a question.
I know some VIP rooms dancings require bottle service. So what they do with the remaining of bottle? Do they bring it to you seat?
Yes. The clubs allow you to finish it at a regular table. You’ll make more friends with free drinks.
Heading to Palomino next week. Are the bedroom prices still 350 and 100for alcohol? Also. When my wife and I went vip at sapphire, we got hit up for tips from waitress, vip doorman, dancer, and then dancer tried to get us to pay the doorman yet another tip that she said she was required to pay
That was a damper on the experience.
Yes….those prices are right. Ultimately, dancers can ask for more or less. But those are typical ….
Jack, from all my experiences with VIP rooms, they’ll bring the bottle back down to where you are sitting
Anyone have updated prices for the VIP and Fantasy rooms?
1. They have a VIP Area off the main floor … 3 songs for $90. 15 minutes for $125
2. Private Room … a unique 15Minute session for $150 plus 2 drinks for about $30
3. 30 Minute bedroom session is $350 plus $100 liquor
Follow up question. I did this once and not sure if i paid more than i should of on tips. The dancer for sure wanted a tip, she also asked me to tip the woman who brought in the alcohol and a tip for the guy who collects the money. If im paying $350 (plus $100 liquor) whats a decent tip for each person? Thank you.
I put $10s in one pocket… and $20s in another. In a dark room hand them one of either and you’re gold.
If anyone ever looks and objects… you’ve made the move in a awkward way. Shove it into their hands and look them in the eye.
If they look away from your stare, and check out the bill…. they are a punk and you can’t give them more.
What is the hour price for the private room? Thanks for all the info Scott.
They have a $450 hour in a private booth with opaque-curtained door and small sofa in VIP, fully nude…. and a $600 private couch room or bedroom with opaque-curtained door, which I understand includes $150 alcohol, fully nude.
If you are interested … I can get you in touch with the senior manager to work out details in advance. He’s a great guy, experienced, and other TVO readers have worked successfully through him. Let me know.
Your reply here will be private …. unless I publish something, it stays private. Don’t be concerned about privacy.
Also… if you are not a FREE TVO SUBSCRIBER … please fill out the simple address box. You’ll have access to more content, advanced postings, and more concierge services. It’s the white box on the right side of your PC screen, or towards the bottom of your mobile screen.
I often hear people say the bottles are 150 for the required spend in the private rooms, however, i have always been charged 175 for the bottle.
Also, I have consistently been quoted by dancers for Private Rooms a rate of $400/30min (PLUS the bottle).
As Arnold would always say, the dancers can name their own prices and yes I have been quoted much much higher for private rooms (which I politely decline). You decide if its worth it…$400 for 30 min in a private bedroom is my new “expectation”
Hope this helps
Scott, the comments seem messed up again. They reversed but now the new one’s are coming after. If it’s not too much trouble, having the most recent comment first would make this a bit easier. But either way, love the site.
My GF and I will be back in town in a couple of weeks and of course we’ll be stopping by the Palomino, our favorite by far. I also like gambling at Jerry’s Nugget so we always stop there as well. We get to the Palomino early by Vegas standards, by 9:00, because we like sitting on the rail for the best “view”. Can’t wait.
Thanks Steven… I’ll have our IT guy look into it.
Do you take the cab to Jerry’s to save yourself and the club the taxi money?
No, we drive. We always have a rental car, there’s so much to do in the Vegas area. We just enjoy Jerry’s.
Steven …. we can’t seem to unsort the order in our WordPress software. There is a gray dialogue box indicator signaling a discussion order. That’s the best we can do….sorry
Given that the solo package is gone, i was thinking of taking an uber to Jerrys Nugget casino and walking to Palomino. Would that avoid the extra charge at door if i tell them i walked there? Also, how does Palomino know if i arrived by uber, a friend or drove myself. Is there someone constantly watching outside? I always wondered that? Thank you.
Bob: Palomino will know if you arrive via cab, Uber, etc., because the driver will go into the club with you and tell them how many passengers he delivered because they pay him a “spiff” for every frsh body he delivers. Taking an Uber to Jerry’s Nugget might work, though you may run into a hip Uber driver who knows what you’re doing and may want to argue about it.
What do you think are the chances of the solo package making a comeback between now and early March when I’m next in Vegas
Tim: You’re talking 6-7 weeks from now . . . impossible to predict. A lot of people are now saying that Covid appears to be over. Some think that within the next month, all of the masks and vax requirements will disappear. Ask me again in a month.
Hello Arnold. I have a question. Pre-pandemic, my wife and I loved visiting Palomino whenever we were in Vegas. We would usually go to the fantasy theme rooms upstairs with always the same dancer as my wife was comfortable with her and it was always very high mileage. In any case, are the dancers and customers not using masks anymore and the high mileage is back to pre-pandemic levels?
I went twice in 2021, once in the summer and once in December. Both times masks weren’t worn by customers or dancers and VIP dances were very high mileage. Only difference I noticed is that they got rid of $20 dances
Hi Luke! Would love to hear from you (perhaps in a private message) what exactly goes down in these private fantasy rooms. My wife and I are headed here next month and want to get as much info beforehand as possible!
Arnold, I never got around to posting about our EPIC night at the Pal for my 40th back in Dec 2019.. Very grateful you got me in contact with Keith. Wanted to provide my update of going solo once, with a buddy once, and three times with wifey since September. Floor dances are not officially back on weekends (due to being PACKED upstairs and down) but that doesn’t mean this club isn’t the closet one around to being at pre-covid levels. We visited in June 2020 to support the staff and it was very sad but not…again…its 95% back. The stage show is still best in town and the majority of the women are fire, with a little more concentration towards skinnier/natural white girls that are either tatted up or girl next door, but plenty still a good mix of Latinas, Blacks and sprinkle of Asians (that I must say have the most luscious bodies of any club). Hustle factor remains low and staff is again best in town; like family. Over the years every dancer we talk to boasts about how much they love the club management and no drama; shows in how happy the dancer are to actually be there. And yes, $100 (3-song) or $150 (15 min) VIP with no booze required are still fully nude (confirm with dancer!) and HIGH MILEAGE! Dancers said Su-Th there are floor dances but now at $30 (inflation a bitch). Guys if you got any question about having a great time in Vegas after 2-years of absurdity, make a trip to Pal – won’t be disappointed.
Anything new on transportation and packages for just one person? I’m in town next week and wanting to check out the Palomino
Well, I would hope that the dancers would provide increased mileage to go with the increased prices. But that’s probably hope for too much. I’m now thinking about utilizing one of those services that provide dancers to perform in you hotel room. Maybe somebody has experience with that option.
Palomino has always been my favorite club and I certainly don’t mind spending some money. But it seems that now it will be a very expensive night out. They no longer offer the solo guy package so I will need to lay out money for a package for two just to get the club limo and a table. On top of that it seems that an hour in a vip room with bottle will cost more than a private box at Sapphire. I hope that Arnold will report on current conditions as far as prices for vip rooms at the Vegas strip clubs.
Hugh: The cost of VIP dances in all of the clubs is in flux, and much more dependent on the individual dancer than it used to be. I’m hoping, at some point, prices will settle down. Prepandemic, there were always some dancers who charged their own rates, but in general, from the customers’ perspective, the cost of a lap dance out on the floor was $20, and there was high but consistent pricing in the VIP rooms. And high mileage was the norm. Now, mileage is scary. So, some of the smart clubs are starting to put on burlesque shows. Maybe Vegas will go to all burlesque shows, like old Vegas.
I agree that I was surprised the rates were more than what the “average” was based on this website, especially since I followed your advice and asked “is it still ‘x’ dollars for a private room?” but again, up to the dancer, then up to me to decide if it’s worth it. No regrets on my end, and thanks to your website, I felt confident in my decisions.
I do cringe at the thought of how much it may be on a Saturday (remember my rates were based on Sun and Tue).
As far as mileage goes, I would measure it in Parsec’s rather than miles…(sorry shameless Star Wars reference). Every dancer seemed to do things I did not think were allowed!
Hugh, maybe you should start a “Package share” service where groups of single guys can chip in, meet up and enjoy the benefits of a package without the hit to the wallet! Necessity is the mother of all inventions as they say!
Yikes, so now you’re looking at dropping a thousand bucks for an hour of vip room time at Palomino?
Who knows, maybe I was wearing my “hey ladies take advantage of me” shirt haha.
Just about all the girls said that 250/30min was for the BOOTH, not for the private bedroom dances. Another dancer said that 450/60 min was again, only for the BOOTH, not the private bedroom.
Not having the lap dances on the main floor means that for one on one time, you can expect to spend some dough. ($100/10min at a minimum)
Arnold, I have a report for you if you wish to relay the info as I was in Vegas this past week and went to Palomino TWICE. On my second visit, the cocktail waitress and a few others somehow knew me by name, I was quite surprised by this considering how many people must cycle through (and felt good too)
Ok, report for night #1:
Sun, Oct. 17 – Bought Two of Kind package (for just myself) arriving early by club standards. Sunday night football was still on, a few dancers, not that many people. Had lots of dancers stop by and chat, and shared my booze with them before they’d go on stage (which is literally the only reason I enjoy having a bottle). I was really hoping for Nova, or Lucky to be there, but no dice.
Dance quotes were as follows:
– 30min in private bedroom = $400 PLUS a bottle on top of that. FYI, bottle prices are now $175 (I think you have 150 listed). I had never done a private bedroom dance before, but the chemistry with the girl was on point and couldn’t say no, and was promptly shocked at how much more intense the private room dance was. Side Note: the famous Regan Riley was there this night and I ran up to her as I was heading upstairs and told Regan I wanted a dance from her when I got back, but she said she was leaving soon I was so bummed! But at least I got to see her dance, it was amazing!
-I took another girl upstairs for a 100 dollar 3 song dance, and afterwards tried to quote $2,000 for an hour in a private room ! I politely declined…
Tuesday, Oct 19 – Arrived by Uber at midnight, no package ($30 cover)
I was shocked to find the club was PACKED…no rail seats, so I went to the bar, and that’s where people started saying hi to me by name which was great. Kitty came up to me, and we started with a 3 song/$100 dance. Afterwards, she quoted me $400 for 30 min in private bedroom PLUS alcohol which was $175 again (same as on Sunday). Another amazing experience with memories I dare not speak of haha! After that, the customers had cleared out a bit and I sat at the rail…lots of girls, just not many my type.
After that, things took a weird turn, towards the end of the night, I was approached by a new dancer, super nice, definitely my type, so we went upstairs for a 3 song/$100 dance. The chemistry was great, so, I asked her if it was still $400 for 30 minutes in private bedroom. She said yes, and I gave her the 400 that she asked for. We arranged with the host, but somehow, when I was paying for what I thought was the bottle, the charge was for $500, and noticed, I was put down for an HOUR, even though I heard her say to him 30 min (which is what we had agreed). Mind you I was basically sober here, so no alcohol to blame. Then I was surprised to get ANOTHER charge for the bottle (another $175). This means, for an hour with this particular dancer, it was $900 PLUS the bottle (too scared to ask if the house would skip the bottle since I already had one from earlier). Based on your information, I know dancers can name their own prices, and since I was not strapped for cash, I let it slide, but damn, that was kinda dirty. The good news is we did do a full hour and I thoroughly enjoyed my time in there. Not sure if the girls gauge the mileage they provide based on the guy, but man…they made me feel special, and I, in turn hoped I made them feel special (a quick shoulder rub apparently goes a long way).
After that, I was tapped out, and spent my remaining singles for whomever was dancing while I waited for my Uber. The cocktail waitress that knew my name, as well as Kitty constantly stopped by multiple times to say goodbye. I really enjoyed how nice everyone was and even made a point to email Keith that very sentiment.
I already miss Vegas…
JAFO that was a rip off. They basically took all the money you had. Misleaded you charging $900 ? That is crazy. Maybe you do not care about money but that would be devastating for that guy who is still there to spend for example $500-600 to have a good time. Basically you can’t have very good time with that amount l. I been in Sappahire and by spending that amount felt amazing.
Hi Jafo! Would love if you could privately message me somehow. I’m trying to gauge if a private fantasy bedroom is worth it or not. Would love to hear more about what your experience was like. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like! Thanks
Jed, I never try to set expectations for dances at a club. I feel its very much dependent on the chemistry (and perhaps your own hygiene) between you and the dancer. I’ve found the ones willing to sit, chat, laugh, and flirt, will have much more intense dances upstairs. In my experience, bedroom dances are VERY worth it 🙂
There are tons of reviews on here regarding couples, but Scott posted a reader submitted review that generally parallels some of my past experiences at Palomino (linked below)…again, your mileage may vary
Hey Arnold, I’ll be taking my first trip out to Vegas since COVID started and Palomino was on my list of places to revisit. However, I heard they use an ID scanner now during check in. Can you confirm? I have nothing to hide but data leaks are a thing and I’m guessing Palomino likely doesn’t have world class IT
Hank: A lot of Las Vegas strip clubs, nightclubs, restaurants and casinos use ID scanners. Adam Gentile, the big honcho at Palomino, is a very savvy guy and I’d be surprised if any venue in Vegas has better data security. Las Vegas, like most resort/party towns, runs on plastic. All of the data breaches I’ve heard about in strip clubs have been inside jobs where a rogue dancer or waitress or host runs up false charges on a customer’s credit card. But this type of scam occurs in a lot of big cities and usually at the major clubs where high rollers regularly blow wads of cash. And it doesn’t matter how world-class the IT is. This is not a common crime, but it does get reported every once in a while. If this is a big concern for you, just go to the clubs with cash, and just the amount you intend to spend.
Not sure about entry fee or table but you can call them and find out if there is a pick up near your hotel that you can jump in with since they won’t pick up a single guy. Probably just have to pay the $30 cover that includes drinks. You could maybe get a seat at the stage.
As of 9/20/21, they are no longer offering the “Flying Solo” package. Big bummer.
DJ, I second your sadness on that one!
This begs the question how does a single go about getting in on a Friday or Saturday night since there appears no packages available (esp considering the #1 rule of Vegas clubbing is never arrive by Cab/Uber)?
Keith made it sound like I should arrive early (like 8pm), but is it first come, first serve in these scenarios? I would assume you are escorted to a seat somewhere even if its non-reserved?
I want to be one of the many to share my appreciation for this site!
We (my wife and I) have been to Vegas and visited the sapphire (Club & Pool) a few times. I always reference the site and try and get up to date with any changes, especially with the current covid circumstances and the site is always helpful!
Per the reviews and comments on this site, we are really eager to try the Palomino however our next quick trip is scheduled where we would only be available to visit on a Friday and/or Saturday evening (Sep 10-11).
According to the site the “2 of a kind” package is not available Fridays or Saturdays. We are not much for beer and the wife likes vodka and I like whiskey, leaving us with the $400 “best of both worlds” package with either a $150 half bottle upgrade or a bar tab.
So $550+ before we even start tipping and buying dances. we do like to drink, but not that much and we would rather spend that kind of money on the dancers.
Also reading the comments it looks like they don’t offer the typical $20 (now $30) lap dance on Friday or Saturday? The challenge is my wife usually needs a warmup or two before she is ready for the VIP.
Reading all the reviews and comments we were really excited to try the Palomino. And we like the idea of VIP, having a few drinks and having a table for the evening.
That being said, my question is, Is it worth the $550+ for VIP on the weekend at Palomino? Or should we stick to what we know at the Sapphire. Or are we missing another good option?
Justin: My advice would be to call Palomino and ask for Keith, the night manager. Explain your situation to him, tell him what you’re interested in and ask him if it might be possible to get the 2 0f a kind package on a Friday or Saturday night. Depending on the night and the time you want to go, the club may make an exception. To my knowledge, there are still no lap dances on the main floor at Palomino, but ask him about this also. The clubs continue to go through changes.
What did you end up doing for your trip?
I actually was trying to plan a Fri/Sat trip to Palomino next month and also noticed the “two of a kind” package was not available for those nights. I did reach out to Keith who has answered questions for me in the past, and he said they were selling out so often, they made the “Best of Both worlds” the smallest available package for Friday/Saturday nights.
I might have to aim for Sunday, though concerned some of the dancers I was hoping to see won’t be there.
Hi Arnold me and my wife are going to be in vegas next week and plan on coming to palomino. Ive here before on a Sunday and it was pretty decent with a lot of dancers and a good sized crowd. This will be my wife’s first time at a strip club and she’s excited to be here. Since we are going on a Monday what would be the best time to arrive & what should we expect as far as a crowd size goes? We also plan to use the limo service offered on the website.
Alan: Hard to say what a Monday night crowd will be like. Palomino is drawing big crowds on the weekends, but weekdays are slower. It will likely be slow before 11 pm, but will pick up as it gets later. The dancers will be high quality, so you’ll get a good show and have fun.
I’ll be in Vegas this Sunday and Monday. I was thinking about going to Palomino and LD. From some of the comments here it seems Palomino will have more dancers on Sunday vs Monday. Currently, do you think Sunday or Monday would be best for Palomino, and at what time will a good majority of the dancers begin arriving? Are any of these two nights good for LD?
Before i start i wanna say that this website helped me and my wife tremendously during our visit! Our experience was incredible and the tips on this site are really helpful. So me and my wife started off by buying the couples package offered on the website total was around 180. We got a text the day of our visit which was Monday letting us know our pick up time and what we would like for our beverage once inside the club. Driver was about 10 mins late which was not a big deal and we still gave him a tip ($10). Once we got inside i took the advice i saw here and let our host know the type of girl we were interested in being with (Latina & brunette) and i gave him a $25 tip. Night started off a little slow with not many dancers that we took interest to and since it was my wife’s first time at a strip club i told her she should tip the dancers she liked on stage so that they can see that she is interested in getting dances. We had very little success at first until we had a girl who my wife tipped while she was on stage come up to us and after some chatting we decided to get a dance (3 for $100). Really high milage dance for the both of us and was well worth it. After about an hour and a half in the club the host i had tipped earlier came back to us and told me that the only Latina dancer for the night was finally finished with her clients and he introduced us. Let me just say i should have tipped that host $50 because she was absolutely AMAZING! Me and my wife had a great connection with her and eventually went up for a 15 minute dance ($150) and then extended it another 30 minutes ($250). I will not say her name but my god her dance was SUPER HIGH MILAGE. The dance was really intense and felt as if i was in a threesome lol. Anyways after our time was up me & my wife decided that we enjoyed her so much that we got a VIP Room that all together with the mandatory bottle service was around $800. She had the same rules as the ones in the booth which was everything was game except touching her vagina. The experience was even BETTER than being in the booth and felt like we were having another threesome with lots of kissing everywhere and paying equal attention to both of us, Without saying much more she definitely made it an experience that we will never forget. I highly recommend tipping the host and letting him know the types of girls you guys want because without doing that we would not have gotten the experience that we did. All in the all my wife absolutely enjoyed the experience & we have plans to come back on a more busier night. i definitely recommend this club to any couple looking to go to a strip club for the first time together.
Not sure if anybody’s been to the Palomino recently, but they’re not doing main floor lap dances on Friday and Saturday. There’s dances on the main stage and now a small tiny second stage. I talked to some of the girls who confirmed no floor lap dances, something about keeping that area open for regular seating on those high traffic days. Also, I’ve walked over from Jerry’s on multiple occasions over the years and have still been charged $30 entry fee, no drink tickets.
Suggestion: It would be nice if you showed the most recent comments first so one wouldn’t have to scroll forever to get to the bottom, more recent posts.
Is the Palomino back to “normal”? My GF and I love this place and plan to go in 3 weeks when we’re in town.
Joe: None of the clubs are completely back to “normal,” but they continue to get closer to normal. I think you’ll have a good time at Palomino.
I second that! Most recent at top please!
Recently attended Vegas for a bachelor party and we decided to check palominos out. This was our first time in Vegas and palominos. I had the absolute best time with a girl who said she was from Hungary. She was tan and brunette, skinny and beautiful. Her and I clicked right away and I was just wanting to know if anyone could let me know what her name is, because I couldn’t hear it over the music/through her mask. I’ve tried looking at their website and zatanna could be her, but I just can’t confirm. This girl had an angel tattoo on her upper back as well. I would like to find out her name so the next time in Vegas I would be able to go to VIP with her again for sure. Thanks
Matthew, pretty sure you’re talking about Mercedes. I enjoyed the VIP with her the other night on my first visit to Palomino. Everything you said matches with my experience. Hungary, gorgeous, brilliant dancer, good conversationalist, sweet spirit. Said she has been working nightly, Thursday-Sunday. Looking forward to my next visit.
Arnold, thank you for your diligent, consistent work on this site. You are an inspiration for anyone looking to turn their hobby, into a passion, into a lifestyle. Congrats.
So spent most of a Friday night at Palomino-club. Place was fantastic. Maybe because it was a friday or maybe because its a smaller club than hustler, but the place felt full in a non COVID sense. There were tons of girls there and plenty of happy customers to enjoy them. The tables are spread further apart for C19 compliance reasosn and they dont let you sit at the stage. Masks are required whenever you get up from your table. The floor bouncers were pretty alert to give polite but firm reminders. The quality of girls was very high, easily eclipsing hustler. In C19 land the few strip clubs that are open seem to have thier pick of girls to come work for them. The stage show was top notch. non of this boring “ill just get up and wiggle a little bit” nonsense that went on at hustler. Those girls worked thier asses off. The VIP prices havent changed from Arnold’s other reviews. Only thing i noticed that changed is a 15 min option for 150. My dances with Tiffany and Regan were excellent. Hustle factor was a little higher than i remember from last time. Definitely more hustle pressure at Palomino than Hustler club. The one minor complaint that i had is the clubs inflexibility when it comes to thier best of both worlds package. They offer 2 kinds of vodka, 1 tequila, and wiskey. No rum options. I asked if they could allow a rum bottle of thier choice be substituted and they said no. Its thier club and thier package so ultimately it thier call but seems a little lame in my opinion if youre dropping 350ish for a bottle package not to get a rum or gin option. Again it was a minir complaint but mot a deal breaker. Overall we had a great time. Probably going to drop by again this weekend if we have time.
Can you provide more detail on the situation at Palomino? Do we have to wear masks all the time or only when we’re walking around? IE can we take them off when we sit down and have a drink.
Also, do the girls have to wear masks the whole time? What’s the deal inside the club? Do you get to talk to the ladies or just sit and watch then dance? Will be there in a week and want to know if it’s worth going out to. Thanks in advance.
Bart, walking. Girls’ masks you have to assume all the time. They will join you at your table.
Private dance = heaven.
Thanks Arnold! I didn’t think you could get a private dance or they were allowed to sit at your table. That’s great news!! I’ll definitely stop by now.
Thanks for keeping us informed about the club as well as your opinions on the clowns on the left of the aisle!
Any idea when Palomino will be up and running? Any words on changes being made moving forward? Thanks!
Random, Sisolak said 2-3 weeks per “Phase.” We’re starting Phase 2 tomorrow. Strip clubs will likely not reopen until Phase 4.
So it will be 4-6 weeks before Palomino will be up and running again (sometime in July).
If you’re planning a trip and want to be absolutely sure, August should be very safe.
I have a question that applies to all clubs Vegas clubs, not just the Palomino (so if things are different at different clubs I’d appreciate that info too).
In my city the strip clubs (that are left) generally only have a single dancer on stage at one time so I was wondering, how does tipping work when there are several girls on stage at once? Do the dancers pool and then equally divide all the tips when they go off stage? If you give a tip to a specific dancer does she get to keep it or does she have to share it with the other dancers?
I hope to get to the Palomino the next time I’m in Vegas so I’m wondering how it works so I can at least tip knowingly. If, for example, there are three dancers on stage and one is providing a great show (and the other two are putting in a lackadaisical performance) I want the tips I give her to go to her, not the other two. Or am I being unreasonable?
Gordon, tips are kept by the specific dancer you’re tipping. Even at Palomino, when there are multiple girls on stage, you’re tipping the girl on your part of the stage. At Sapphire there are multiple girls on stage at peak hours, but they’re on separate stages and keep their own tips.
Occasionally you’ll see a couple of girls truly doing an act together. In that case, they would share the tips. But that’s rare.
If you find a situation where there are multiple girls on stage and you truly want to make sure a specific girl gets the tip, hold it up and look her in the eye. She’ll come over for it and dance for you.
So, you’re being entirely reasonable.
First time in Vegas and had to go to Palomino. Called around 11pm on a Thursday night and requested the Flying Solo package for $60. They picked me up within 15-20 minutes and dropped me off at the front door. After checking in and paying I walked on to the main area. It was already packed and I had to stand along the left side wall to the bar. Lots of girls came up to chat and I let them know I was just watching the show at the moment and maybe I’d see them later.
Then Carmen walked by and I was immediately focused on meeting her. Tall, skinny, brunette with a great body. I actually went over to her and said “Hi”.
We started with a lap dance downstairs so I could be sure we clicked before going private. As soon as the dance started, I was sure.
Side Note: I’ve only been to strip clubs where local laws allow bikini bottoms and pasties only. To suddenly have a fully nude and gorgeous girl giving me a lap dance was dizzying.
Halfway through the dance we started arranging our 30 minute VIP session. We headed upstairs and found our VIP booth and got started.
I really didn’t know what to expect and wanted to be sure I didn’t cross any line, while making sure I did not miss out on anything I was allowed to do.
Carmen seemed very appreciative that I asked for consent before doing anything new and right as I discovered I could kiss her neck the guard came by and announced time was up. For a moment I thought I had overstepped, but Carmen assured me I hadn’t.
The half hour flew by, so I went ahead and got another hour.
The hour flew by also, but was definitely worth it. I should have just started with an hour and skipped the half honestly. Mileage during the hour was VERY high and we talked a lot about personal turn-ons and our favorite personal sexual adventures. It was very intense and I was completely hooked.
Carmen never tried to hard sell me on anything. After the hour I independently decided to take it to a fantasy suite. We found out there was a 30 minute wait, so she said we could go to the bar and wait. We found a table upstairs and she said she’d be right back and went off.
It was the last I saw of her. I waited for over 30 minutes and they called for her when her place in line came up. I went up to the guy who called it and he advised me that she had actually checked out.
WTF? Just let me know instead of making me wait like an asshole.
So, now (connection wise) I was back at square one. I decided to walk back downstairs and see if anyone else seemed interesting to me. I wasn’t about to start completely over (i.e. lapdance to VIP to Fantasy Suite) so it was do or die.
Several girls came up to me and asked why I was alone, but they weren’t the type I was looking for. Then a tall blonde walked up and started talking to me. We spent a few minutes chatting and there was an instant connection. Unfortunately, I could not hear her name over the music and then felt I couldn’t ask again.
We finally decided to go directly to a half hour Fantasy Suite and went back upstairs to the guy who had let me know Carmen checked out. She asked about the wait time and the guy said “For him, none”. Great way to make up for my previous disappointing attempt.
After some issues with fraud alerts on my credit card due to the sudden high price being charged, we finally got things arranged and we were ready to go.
Holy shit! I really wish I’d just started with the Fantasy Suite as it was so much more intense than the VIP. Maybe it varies from girl to girl, but my blonde, gorgeous, slender, sexy, flirty girl was awesome. During the time we waited for the credit card situation to sort out, she never left and kept snuggling with me while we waited. It was really a GFE in many ways as we talked and laughed together. I had to start over with permissions for her, but they were pretty much the same as Carmen’s were with some nice bonuses. Essentially, I could touch her anywhere except the vagina or anus and could kiss and nuzzle anything mid-waist and up.
She, however, could touch anywhere on her body and did so. The session was so intense that I had to take a few breaks, lol.
I’ll just finish by saying that despite my issue with Carmen, I was completely happy with the final outcome of the night and left satisfied.
Great first trip… hopefully not the last.
Hector, thank you for the great report. You describe the private bedroom dances better than I have in over six years of trying to describe how terrific they are here.
Hi Arnold, LOVE your site!
I wanted to post my experience from January 2020. A friend and I decided to go out to a club on a Wednesday night when we were in Vegas on a trip, and we chose Palamino thanks to the research I had done on your site.
We called for the club limo about 10:10 and they showed up to the D to pick us up about 10:25. The driver waited a bit for both of us to come down but was very patient and showed us some package options to choose from (no charge for the limo, but we tipped the driver $20). We opted to skip the package and pay the $30 min drink charge instead. Not a problem since it was a Monday and not a lot of people in the club. We went straight to the bar when we got in and were met by a very lovely girl (wish I could remember her name). Not a vulture by any means, we hung out with her at the bar and bought her some drinks for a while. She was great to talk with and a few other dancers came around as well to hang with us. each of us took a girl upstairs to the VIP for the 3 song private dance (WELL worth it) and eventually went to the stage to watch the show. We invited the girls we were hanging out with to join us there which they did and that got us some good attention from the dancers on stage. We stayed until about 3:30 (this was the time of the last ride from the club limo) and the same girls hung out with us the entire time.
Here are my takeaways from this experience: There is no need to spend money on a package deal if the club isn’t busy because the drinks are cheap. The $100 for 3 songs in VIP is a great value considering the dancers are nude, the space is very private, and the mileage was the best I’ve had anywhere. Last but not least, this club is AMAZING! I would absolutely go back especially on a week night, there were about 35 dancers there and probably about 25 customers. If you’ve never been to Palomino before, put it on your bucket list, I will be back!
FS, thanks for another excellent trip report. You capture the club well.
The one point I’d make is that seating and number of dancers on week nights depend hugely on whether there’s a convention in town. There have been conventions in town in January and February that had the club filled to standing room only by 9 pm. The club had to stop selling couples’ packages on those nights because they ran out of tables to reserve.
Always a good idea during convention season to reserve your limo early and ask then whether you need to get there earlier to get a seat.
Was at the Palomino a couple weeks back; the club was amazing. Better than the Rhino, Sapphire and others. Got a lap dance from a couple dancers and then got the 3-dance deal with Kendra; she was great. Also had my eye on a couple other girls – Ana, Kendall and this petite Asian chick. But so did the other patrons haha. Can’t wait till my next trip. Great site by the way!
Thanks for the report, Vik!
I went here last Saturday and it is a always fun time. I spent a lot of time at the rail since the main stage show is one of the best. It’s classy when the dancer thanks everyone that tipped as she is collecting her money at the end. I was amazed that some guys were not tipping at all though.
It’s easy to lose track of time at the rail and ended up missing some girls for a VIP that left already. I left with way too much money in my pocket which was a bummer. Some things I noticed this time were the questions/small talk I was being asked and how dancers size you up.
1. What is your name?
2. Where are you from?
3. What brings you to Vegas, work or vacation?
4. How long are you in town?
5. What kind of work are you in?
6. Have you been getting dances?
Arnold, how do you think dancers profile guys based on this? Next time I’d like to have better quick response answers for girls I’m interested in vs. those that I’m not.
Nate, thanks for the report.
I don’t think the dancers really profile you much with those questions. They’re just trying to be friendly and feel out what you’re looking for.
Question 6 is where she’s starting to make her pitch on selling you a dance. That’s where you answer, “No dances right now, I really want to watch the stage show for a while.” Or “I’m watching for a special dancer I met here last week.”
If you don’t buy her a drink, and you answer like that, she’ll take the hint.
You can always cut to the chase right from the start. When she asks your name or where you’re from, just say, “If you don’t mind, I don’t feel like talking right now. I’d like to focus on the stage show.”
But be as gentle as you can unless she shows she’s a hustler who won’t take no for an answer. Remember, it’s part of her job to be a “girlfriend” for the night–that’s what a lot of guys are really looking for.
That sequence of questions is spot on but typically comes from dancers after the Club Vulture, who in my experience doesn’t go through that progression. The Vulture typically goes straight to ‘Buy me a drink?’ if you are at the bar, or may grab you by the arm when you walk in to try and walk you on a tour (thus keeping you away from other dancers). Question 6 for me though is almost always ‘Have you been to (insert club name) before?’.
Great point about the vulture, Nunya. Best tell in the world.
After a less than impressive visit to Treasures, we ended up back at the Palominio. Fantastic experience this time. No one touched our bottle this time. Several girls approached but we patiently waited for Cole. Oh my…. that girl. As soon as she arrived and came over, immediately paid for 1 hour and it was so so worth it. If I had anything bad to say about the entire night, it was about, of all things, the water. When the bottle was empty, like less than 5 minutes empty, they whisked it away along with the bottle of water. They said they couldn’t leave water on the table without an active bottle? At that point, I didn’t care because we headed upstairs. Just seemed odd. All in all, 10/10 and worth every penny we spent.
Wife, thanks for the heads up on the weird water rule. I have never run into that.
I’ll double check on that and see if it’s really a new official policy.
Was catching up on some reading here and wanted to post a little something about what was reading.
I have suggested to some people to get a higher package if they want and can do that because with those higher packages you get a reserved booth or table for the evening. While with the drink tickets you don’t get that. Also what I think some people forget or don’t realize is that those bottles in the package are yours. So if you have some left when leaving the club you can take them with you which I have done twice. The driver has always checked me in when getting to the club who then has called a host who shows up very quickly always showing me where I’m sitting, where the restroom is and also told me if there is someone that I have an eye on let them or a waitress know and they would do their best to send them over to my table. With how much I have enjoyed going there, that is quickly becoming my perferred choice of clubs in Vegas to visit.
Never felt any pressure from any of the ladies and some just like to sit there and talk for a while especially if its not busy. Another suggestion I would make is try to make sure to keep water at the table if you are drinking. Last time I was there the very nice waitress brought over like 6 bottles of water for the table when I requested some.
Thanks for the report, Ryan.
I agree on every point.
This is club 2 of my trip. This was a day after Christmas and I got a package this time since the days were eligible for a solo package and also needed a ride since it seems like they may not pick me up and return me if I’m solo.
So sadly, this was a pretty meh experience this time and left me pretty disappointed. I guess due to rain, there was more traffic, but the driver was almost half an hour late. I booked 2-3 days in advance, so it wasn’t really a super last minute thing. They were taking others back to a hotel when I got picked up, and then they detoured to pick up another couple from another club. So I didn’t get to the club for like an hour after my scheduled time.
I checked in and noticed there’s no host that takes you to your table. Is that normal?
I walked back out and I told them I have a package so where would I sit? The guy at the front says to just ask one of the hosts inside. So I ask and they have no idea. I had to tell them I bought a package. If it is like that, can’t you just say you had one even if you really didn’t? They asked what kind of package. I said solo. And maybe because I’m solo, they gave me the worst table or something. It was in the second stage area where the lapdances are performed. There’s no stage show on that side that day, and I was literally the only person with a table sitting back there, and very few dancers were going back that way except to perform lapdances for others.
I also feel like the hosts at this club are not that approachable and they don’t seem all that friendly? Just the vibe I got from them. Arnold, do you feel that way? They feel like they don’t care that much. I also got that vibe the first time I went as well, but I didn’t have a package back then due to it being Friday, so figured I’m not going to be treated the same. But it seems like it didn’t matter.
I took a few lapdances since there really weren’t many girls. I didn’t care that much for some of them, but just got them because it would be a waste because it was slow. I was budgeted to do a few VIP and also wanted to try a themed room. Decided to just sit up on the stage instead, like the first time I went. Seems like that’s the best place to get approached a bit more. Did take some advice from your site and asked one of the dancers on stage to come find me after. Thought it didn’t work out since it was like an hour, but eventually she found me. Didn’t end up getting a themed VIP room that night though. Luckily, saving that money was important for the third club which continues onto the Treasures page. Wasted 2 drink vouchers though. Forgot to just cash them out for water or something.
Mark, a solo package doesn’t entitle you to a reserved table. So better tables were reserved for people who bought packages that include a reserved VIP table.
Hi Arnold. Do you know if getting the solo package still allows for a round trip transportation? I won’t have my own transportation like I did last time and would prefer not getting a taxi or uber from this location since it is farther out. I also didn’t see any taxis last time, unlike Sapphire where there were tons just waiting.
And kind of an odd question, but during the winter or colder times, do you know how the room temperature is in any of the clubs? Would it generally be more heated?
Also, what do you think of this schedule? Would you change it up? If all goes well, my plan is to hit 3 clubs and get packages for each day. Probably Sapphire on Christmas due to it being slower in general that day, but because it is a larger club, there should be more variety of dancers. Palomino on Thursday, the 26th so I can get a solo package since they don’t offer solo on Friday usually. And Treasures on Friday since clubs should start picking up again. Thanks again.
Mark, the solo package at Palomino definitely includes round-trip transportation.
The doorman can also have a cab there in a couple of minutes from downtown, but no reason to get one since you’re entitled to the limo.
I’ve never noticed any Vegas strip club feeling cold. Not sure what temperature they set the heating at, but I’ve always felt comfortable. If anything, they may cool it down too much in the summer.
I think your plan sounds like a great time. Good choice for each day. I’d do the same.
Hi Arnold, so I went to Palomino today, and I met a few beautiful girl and especially Jordan, which gave me 30 minutes of heaven in the bedroom.
However, I was surprised to find out that the really VIP rooms now cost 550$ for 30 minutes, and 1100$!!! for 60 minutes. I tried that with two different girls and that’s what they’ve told me.
I guess you should update your prices.
Regardless, I’m in love with Jordan, she was amazing.
Mark, that’s not an official price. That’s the price those two dancers were charging. In the end, the dancers are all independent contractors and can charge what they like.
The house minimum is much lower and most dancers at Palomino still charge the house minimum or right around there.
On the other hand, Jordan is worth the extra money. Glad you found her.
I will repeat what everybody here says, and this is an amazing knowledge packed site!
I just arrived in Vegas and planning on Tomorrow / Wednesday to hit Palomino…
I am looking for a kind of GFE experience? Like once I get a lap dance from a girl I like, I’d offer her a drink and have her sit with me for an hour or so and finish it off with a private VIP dance of 30/60 minutes in the bedroom room.
Are the girls in the Palomino good for GFE kind of action?
Mark, they are wonderful for GFEs. Just remember to tip the dancers if they’re sitting with you for an extended time.
I think you’ll have a great time.
Hi Arnold – We are an attractive, athletic couple in our late 50’s who enjoy these clubs as my wife is able to explore her bi-sexual urges. We’ve been to numerous clubs in our home state. Some of the clubs have dancers that engage with us freely while others leave us to ourselves. What is the experience here for couples in their 50’s. We are very social and tip liberally. Thanks.
Carl, Palomino is a great club for couples. Your ages are fine, the dancers will appreciate you. My wife loves the club and its dancers.
I recommend you check out our post on several visits to Palomino Club by a couple very similar to you and your wife.
Hi Arnold, My wife and I will be back at Palomino in mid January to do a 1/2 hour bedroom dance with 1/2 bottle of booze. We’re not big drinkers and my wife is designated driver so the 1/2 bottle is all we want for the night. Can we arrive after 8pm, skip the cover charge and free drinks, order the bottle for $100 when we arrive and have a drink while we decide on a dancer or does a full bottle have to be delivered to the bedroom? How much would we tip after a great little 3-way cuddle?
Cancon, normally it has to be delivered to the bedroom. But I know that people have been able to work out deals like what you’re describing with a custom package.
You’re more likely to be able to work out a deal like that for a Wednesday night than a Friday or Saturday night. In January, the club will be jumping.
If the dancer quotes you $350 for a 30-minute private bedroom dance, she’s getting $250 of that. If she’s given you a great dance, I’d tip $25 to $50. That will cover her tip to the VIP host and still give her something extra.
If you get your heart set on a dancer who quotes you $500 for a 30-minute private bedroom dance, she’s getting $400 of that. Unless the dance is spectacular, I’d consider that she had already tipped herself.
Thanks Arnold for all the help and info.
PV, just got an answer. It’s two drinks unless you get the Flying Solo package, which comes with three drinks.
PV, you’d think it would be easy to get you an answer to this question but I haven’t got a reply from the manager yet and the girl at the front desk in the afternoon says she doesn’t know.
I’ll keep working on it, but if you head out before I can get back to you, I’d assume two drinks.
Thanks for the help Arnold. Scheduled a pick up through their website and driver also mentioned it was $30 cover with two drinks included.
The tip about getting there before 10:30 to guarantee a seat was helpful. We got there around 10 and managed to snag the last few open tables it seemed. This was a Saturday night.
Wanted to make a special shout out to two girls that stood out that night. Don’t remember their names but one was a girl that danced to two Paramore songs, wearing a choker, and put on a super acrobatic show. She seemed to be enjoying herself and singing along to her song choices.
The other girl was a tall redhead that put on a different type of show than I’ve seen anywhere else. She kept teasing a lot and egging people on to throw money. Not in a rude way but playful teaseful way.
Hoping to see them again next time I’m in Vegas. Thanks for all the info again, had a blast there.
PV, thanks for the report!
Just a quick question. I went to palominos early this year, paid the $30 cover but only got two drink vouchers. Do you know if that’s the new norm as opposed to the three you mention here? Planning on going again tomorrow and wanted to know How many drink vouchers I should be getting for my cover. If offered two again should I mention that it should be three?
PV, it’s been two in the past, then three. It’s possible they’ve changed it back to two again or it’s possible they change it based on the night of the week or only at peak hours. It’s possible they change it by the season. I’m a regular so they never charge me the cover.
I’ll double check tomorrow afternoon and try to post an answer here before you head over.
You da man Arnold! Music to our ears that we can get dances downstairs.
Regarding upstairs, I think we’d enjoy it for a change of pace. It had a “house party” like vibe. Interacted with other patrons and dancers. Lot of fun.
I’ll post some site reviews soon.
Yes, RK, I know what you mean about that house party vibe, now that I think of it.
Looking forward to your comments.
Haven’t sent you’re an inquiry in a while, but know that I routinely visit your site. Godsend for our relationship. Since last Oct wife and I have tricked out more than we probably should (16x!)…but again, THANK YOU! I owe you some site reviews, especially for what has become our all-time fav and go to club: Treasures!
I visited the Pal for the first time since 2002. It was the final night of the competition (Thurs Oct 10th). Purpose was to “recon” the place for my wife, so I dragged along a colleague. As you’ve said many times before, the parking is safe, being gated and well lit and the women were GORGEOUS! We were downstairs at the bar for an hour or so before being persuaded to move upstairs for some dances. Here are my questions:
1. Outside of VIP areas, are lap dances only given upstairs, or can you get them in your chair on the main floor? There was an event going on so I wasn’t sure if that was the reason why we had to go upstairs or not.
2. As for lap dances upstairs, are they always against the mirrored wall, or again can they be given in a chair?
3. Downstairs was super dark, with light primarily focused on the stage. To us that is ideal, because we love darker clubs. However, when I went upstairs, that area was quite bright. Swear I could make out faces from across the room. Is it typically brighter upstairs?
Wife and I might make our first trip there either tonight or next Saturday for our anniversary, so your insight would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
RK, you can get lap dances at Palomino at your table on the main floor. In fact, you see a lot of that late on busy weekend nights.
Some dancers like to take you off to the side or upstairs just to give you a feeling of more privacy. And you’re right, they may have taken you upstairs that particular night because of the competition. But you can always get a dance right at your table if you ask.
You know, I usually arrive early so I’m downstairs unless I’m going to the VIP. I never really noticed whether the upstairs is brightly lit! I know the VIP booths are dark. I’ll check next time. Might have been for the competition.
Looking forward to your report on Treasures! Always interested in how a couple likes a club I recommend.
Hey Arnold, I usually go to Palomino whenever I’m in Vegas (about twice a year for the last 3 years). I usually go solo and get the Two Of A Kind package because I love the reserved seating and half bottle. Do you know if the club will allow me to upgrade that package from a half bottle to a full bottle? And if so, how much? The next package that includes a full bottle is double the price, which is a little too much for a solo trip.
David, just hit them up for a custom package and tell them exactly what you told me. They’ll work out a deal with you, especially since you’re a regular.
I wrote my experience on the Sapphire page if anyone wanted to compare clubs. Apologies if it is too long. It was my first time solo, first time at this club, and third club I’ve ever been to (Sapphire I went the day before this).
Since they don’t sell packages for Fri/Sat, I drove myself as Arnold suggested he does all the time. Arrived at about 9:50-10pm or so on Saturday night. Great tip to arrive before 10:30pm since it was a bit empty. Paid $10 admission since I drove myself. I showed license and I think that’s it. They mentioned 2 drink minimum when I get inside? This site said 3 drinks after 8pm for $30, but I wasn’t asked that. I did get a water which was $6 (I don’t drink). They also provided brand name water, Voss, which was nice, unlike Sapphire’s generic and overpriced water.
The place felt pretty small in the main area. They were decorated for Halloween as well. All tables had the reserved signs on them. Standing room felt a bit uncomfortable due to less room. It was also quite dark and I couldn’t see quite as well further away.
I was given a tour by a girl when I got there. I was a bit wary about going in some of the rooms since I read some get tricked into them before, so kind of had half my feet outside.
Didn’t get approached quite as much as Sapphire. I’m assuming due to less dancers, me sitting near the stage if I had a seat, and/or they don’t approach standing people that much, were reasons for not getting approached as often.
A lot of the girls were just kind of standing around waiting as well. I really wanted to get a dance from a girl after seeing her on stage, but didn’t know how to approach and didn’t want to lose my seat if I went up to ask and she wasn’t available.
Most of the girls kept asking for VIP first thing. I usually want a dance first instead to see if I liked them. And all, but maybe 2 or so, asked for a tip which really bothered me. I gave them all a little, but I really didn’t want to considering I didn’t have to at Sapphire. I also had to ask if I can touch breasts since it seems half or more didn’t allow you to for lapdances. They all save it for VIP. Another thing I noticed here was all of them asked for payment before the dance (due to the tip hustle? since I think it would be easier to ask for a tip separate from the main payment) compared to Sapphire where you can pay after.
I did end up doing the 3 dance VIP 4 times, two with the same girl though. I like that they don’t require drinks, but the booths were way too dark for my liking. They kept selling me on fully nude, but I could barely see anything when I was in the VIP. The one with the blue light room was a bit easier on the eyes. Red light room was terrible for me, but both were still really dark. Considering it was already curtained off, I feel like it could be a bit brighter. I could barely tell what their bottoms looked like due to how dark it was. Unless the dancers were just bad and didn’t give me good angles or something? Therefore, the whole fully nude thing really didn’t make that much of a difference for me much, unless you can touch there, which most don’t allow?
The stage show was legit as has been said. What some of the girls could do was amazing. The only thing is I hated losing my seat every time I got up for a dance, so I rejected some dancers just to keep my seat. I also didn’t like how people were “saving” the stage seats for each other, even though the seats were empty for a good amount of time. I sit down and they tell me someone is sitting there. So eventually I had to always ask if they were taken, which made for a really annoying experience. Wished I was able to just reserve a table since they were never all filled up at the same time.
Overall though, the experience was good. I probably spent about 5 hours since I was hoping for some dancers I would be more interested in to approach. The cheaper drinks, no minimum drinks for regular VIP rooms, and a great stage show allowed for nice entertainment.
Although always being asked for tips, fighting for seating, and dark VIP room lighting were my main issues.
When dancers ask for a tip, but it really wasn’t good enough for one, what do you do or say?
I didn’t want to hurt their feelings, cause a scene if they get insulted, and talk bad about me or anything, so I originally gave $5 each time, but dropped it to $2 later. The 3 song VIP’s I gave $10. When getting a lot of dances, it really starts to add up.
I would rather not have to tip unless it is exceptional. I don’t know if Palomino is different, but I was rarely asked to tip at Sapphire. However, almost every girl except 2 asked for it in Palomino.
They all do ask “How was it?” I said good to every one even though some were only ok, so I’m wondering if that may also play a factor. Would love to know how to answer this politely without having to tip them, where they won’t get upset.
Mark, just say something like, “You’re beautiful but I can’t pay a tip right now. Thank you for the dance.” Smile.
These are professionals. They aren’t going to get upset.
Palomino wouldn’t tolerate it anyway. Getting upset with a customer for not paying a tip would get them fired from the club.
I really appreciate your time in taking to answer all these. I’m getting addicted knowing about all this stuff, and have like so many questions. So I hope you don’t mind.
Regarding the tip stuff, the reason I felt the way I did was I had one who wanted me to tip because she claimed to do 1 and a half songs (this was at Sapphire and I know she started when it was coming close to the end of one song) and was giving attitude after I didn’t tip originally. I never asked for more than one song, and she was low mileage and air danced half the song. But I didn’t want her to go and tell the bouncer/hosts that I never paid or something like that. Because I was reading reviews how they can rat on you and get you kicked out or something.
Also, you keep mentioning using the hosts and waitresses to send girls, but how does that work exactly and what initial conversation do you use to get that brought up? I was too shy or quiet to take advantage of anything since it was my first time solo, and only second time going to one of these, but I do feel I may have missed out.
And if they do send girls, what happens if they are not your type, or the one you originally were interested in, maybe wasn’t what you expected? Feels kind of weird to ask for one and then reject them after haha.
And a bit off topic, but do you, or maybe people you know, have knowledge or a reliable resource site like this, about Southern California strip clubs? All the things I’m reading are extremely outdated, and recent stuff are all terrible reviews. I can’t tell if they are fake reviews. Though apparently there was some law that made dancers employees instead of independent contractors (at least northern CA), so that hurt the scene.
You’re the man. Thanks again.
Mark, if a dancer is acting like a low-life hustler, demanding tips and making claims that you got more than you got, I’d call over a host or walk over to a host right then and say, “I love this club, but this dancer is trying to hustle me and won’t take no for an answer and I don’t like it.”
The alternative is to say to the dancer, “I don’t like this hustle. Do I have to complain to a club manager to get you to stop?”
No, they can’t rat on you and get you thrown out unless you do something like sexually assault them or get drunk and verbally abusive.
Don’t let the rare hustler scare you. You take charge.
The way you might start with a host is you spot a girl on stage or across the room that you like, hand the host a five dollar bill and say, “Could you ask that girl to come over when she’s free?”
After the dance, if you want him to send over more girls like that one, just go back to the host, slip him a ten or twenty, and say, “Could you send over more dancers like that one?”
If you ask for a specific girl, I’d at least get a lap dance from her. And I’d try to get at least a lap dance from all of the girls he sends over unless one is really horrible. Then you say, “Thanks for coming over, but I need a break. I’m going to just watch the stage show for a while.” Or tell her you need to use the men’s room and go.
I’m not hearing good things about the Southern California clubs but I don’t have a great source and I haven’t visited them myself in years. But there have been a lot of problems with arrests of dancers for allowing touching and then, as you mention, the change in the law that made dancers employees.
Both basically kill the things that make a dancing job appealing, so good dancers with any ability to get out will move elsewhere.
Did any of the girls from club lacy end up here? Lacy was my fave and I’m going to Vegas in January and really want to see the type of ladies at Lacy’s but not feeling girl collection.
Bc, yes, I don’t know their names but about a half dozen of Lacy’s girls moved to Palomino. Very fine.
Lacy’s owner is opening a new urban club in Dallas. It will be huge. I’ll write about it when the club opens.
My wife and I (both first timers to any strip club) have decided on this club based on your recommendation for couples. We are thinking about doing a couples package the question I have is if we do the transportation to and from the club is this usually with other people? My wife is already nervous going and the last thing I want is her being in a limo of all guys on the way there (if that makes sense). To piggy back off that question why do they offer free entry when someone uses their transportation system? I’m not sure I get the logic. Thanks in advance
Anthony, the transportation can be with other people but if you’re buying a couples package and want a car all to yourselves the club will be happy to do that. Just let them know when you reserve the package so they can reserve the car.
The reason you get free admission when you arrive by the club limo is that the clubs have to pay cabbies a big “spiff” (a head fee, or bribe) when you arrive by cab. The spiff has run from $30 per person to as high as $125 per person at various times, depending on the club. If you don’t pay the fee, the cabbies talk customers out of going to your club and redirect them to the club that pays the highest spiff (often a crappy, overpriced club).
Basically, if you take a cab to a club, your entire admission fee goes to the cabbie anyway, and the club may have to pay a lot more than your admission fee. The club actually saves money giving you a free ride to the club and it’s a really nice service for customers, plus it keeps clubs from having to raise their drink prices to absurd levels.
Hi Arnold, thanks for your reply in the other thread. I think I’m going to plan to go solo on Saturday night, thus can’t get a solo package. From what I’m reading, the surrounding area is a bit shady and safety would be my concern. I’m not a big person and am very uncomfortable driving, especially at night.
Would you recommend trying my luck to hitch a ride for a limo as you suggested and then taking an uber back? Or would driving myself be a safe option? Meaning if somehow I got a bit lost getting there or going back, I won’t be facing alleyways, one way streets, etc. where there may be homeless or other shady people.
And how big is the parking lot, and is there a valet fee? Or any other recommendations that may be better?
Also, for a Saturday, when do you think is the latest time to go where it would have a good amount of customers and dancers, but not to the point that it is crazy packed?
Mark, the surrounding area is Jerry’s Nugget Casino, the most protected place in North Las Vegas. Vegas police have zero tolerance of even the slightest mischief when it comes to our casinos. The casinos are the main support of this city and state.
When you walk out of Palomino Club, you’re directly across from a team of valets and security guards standing right there at the front door of the casino. And the Strip isn’t wide there, like it is at Flamingo or Trop. You could hold a conversation with one of those guards from the door of Palomino.
Plus Palomino has its own valet and security guard outside.
But again, just make it easy on yourself and call the club and ask to tag along with one of their other pick-ups. Then do the same thing coming back to your hotel.
If you’ve got a car and want to drive yourself, just stay on the Strip. Palomino is on the Strip. There is no way to get lost if you stay on the Strip. The only place that’s confusing at all is where the Strip and Main St. join up in a V a few blocks south of Palomino. If you veer to the right at that major V intersection going home from Palomino, you’ll be on Main St. So veer to the left to stay on the Strip.
If you forget and veer to the right, Main St will take you right downtown on a major, well-lit street. Just stay on Main Street until you get to the Main Street Station Casino downtown (there is no way to miss it), then take a left at the light there and drive the couple of blocks back to the Strip on the big well-lit heavily-trafficked street.
The only other slightly confusing place is near the Stratosphere, where there’s a left onto St. Louis street. Don’t take that left or get in any other left-turn lanes. Just stay on the Strip.
There’s no valet fee at Palomino, but of course you tip the valet a few bucks when you pick up your car. The parking lot is well-lit, guarded, and completely fenced with a tall fence. I’m routinely leaving the club alone at 2 am, sometimes walking across the street to the casino for breakfast. I’ve never felt anything other than completely safe.
On a Saturday night without a package, I’d make sure to get there no later than 10:30 pm. It won’t be standing room only yet, but you want a seat on the main floor if possible.
Hey Arnold, my friend and I are thinking of going on a Sunday evening here in a few weeks. What’s the best way for us to get a reserved table for 2? Would we be able to negotiate something if we arrive by the club limo when we get there or is the $180 2 of a kind package the least expensive option?
Aaron, if you’re going for the Sunday night football party, Palomino has a $169 “Pre-Game Package” available before 7 pm. You can read more about the Sunday Night Football party here
They serve free taco-truck tacos grilled fresh on the spot, there are lots of prizes given out (like free private booth dances, Vegas Golden Knights tickets, and various packages).
If you’re coming later in the evening, after the game, the Two of a Kind package will get you a premium reserved table for the night, the club’s royalty treatment, and lots of attention from the club’s top dancers thirsty for your free mixers.
On a Sunday night, you would also likely be able to negotiate something in the limo on the way over or at the door. And you could probably get the reserved table for the night for a bit less money. But I’m not sure the overall deal would be better. For example, you’d have to pay by the bottle for bottles of water (the very best dancer bait). And you probably would not get the premium table location.
Remember too that you get 10% off if you reserve your package online in advance.
I used to always advise people to save money by getting a package at the door on a Sunday night at Palomino. But I got feedback from readers saying that the packages reserved in advance are actually a better overall deal for an evening at the club. You end up spending about the same but the advance package, they felt, got them superior service, which they liked.
Do they swipe your Driver’s license at the Palomino now? If so, I think I am going to try somewhere else.
Beau, I’ve never had my driver’s license swiped at Palomino, but they do know me there and I always pay for things with cash.
I’ll double check with the manager and get back to you.
Did you ever hear back? We have been there a few times and we don’t remember that being done in the past. My friends are pretty hesitant to go back if thats the case.
Beau, the club is not equipped to do a police scan of IDs.
I was sadly disappointed tonight visiting the Palomino. I spent $250 on a 25-minute private dance with two dancers (they told me it was basically buy one get one free and I should have known it was too good to be true), and then after about five or ten minutes tops they claim it’s over and we should go to a private bedroom for $600. I know it hadn’t been the full 25 minutes because when we finished I hadn’t even been at the club for much more than half an hour. When I mentioned that I didn’t think it had been a full 25 minutes, one of the dancers went out and basically loudly told the bouncer that she wanted to call the dance over because I didn’t want to tip them anymore, and then came back and said that time was up. There was a very nice dancer named Kitty who gave me a high mileage $20 lap dance to help cheer me up after I threw away that money, but overall disappointing considering the awesome reviews it got on here. Next time I will know that when something sounds too good to be true, it is.
Logan, I have never run into anything remotely like this in 13 years of going to Palomino. In my experience, a dancer who would do a thing like that would not be allowed to dance at the club. The VIP host would turn her in to club management.
I remember one particular dancer who was a knockout. I asked for her one week after I had seen her there the week before and they told me she’d been fired for being a troublemaker.
If you have the dancers’ names, I’ll pass them on to the club owner. He will know who the VIP host was at that time.
The dancer who went out and was talking to the host was named Kimberly I believe. She had a few piercings and was a brunette. Had some tattoos too I think. The girl she was with didn’t try to get me to fork over more money and seemed like she just went along with whatever Kimberly did, so I’d rather not give her name. I was there August 4th from around 12:30-1:30ish
Thank you, Logan, I’ll pass this on to the club owner.
Logan, the owners at Palomino thanked me for sending your report and said to thank you for the report. They are looking into it.
Thanks. At 9 pm, are there tables that already have ‘reserved’ signs on them plus others that are first come first serve? I guess I wondering that if I’m sitting at a table that is not already reserved (or if there are 2 of us and one of us always stays at the table if the other is in private booth), will they physically make me move like they do at Sapphire?
Nunya, the reserved signs are for people with packages who are arriving later. But yes, at 9 pm, there are usually both reserved tables plus first come first serve tables.
They won’t physically make you move at those non-reserved tables. But they will give away that table if you leave it to go to the VIP.
If there are two of you, and one of you always stays at the table, they won’t give it away.
If you’re going at 9 pm, they will probably offer you a package at the door that includes a reserved table for the night. (They will do that unless most of the tables are already reserved.) Those packages are usually a good deal.
I can’t remember but on a Saturday night, if you arrive 9 pm or so before it gets packed, are there tables available that are not reserved, so if you get one early, they won’t kick you out of it? Thanks!
Nunya, you’ll be able to get a table before 9 pm, but without a package they won’t reserve it for you for the night. And Palomino gets to standing room only on Saturdays by midnight, 1 am.
If you want that table for the night, I’d get a package.
One thing I left out. Drink prices. $7 for domestic bottle. $12 for rail drink. Very reasonable.
My GF and I went to the Palomino last night. We drove ourselves. Got there around 10:30. $10 cover. It was busy but not packed. The tables were about 1/2 to 2/3 full but the rest were all reserved. The bar was full. Fortunately there were 2, and just 2, seats on the rail. We grabbed them quick. We actually prefer sitting on the rail. Especially at the Palomino. Many of the dancers are soooo good on the pole. And of course since it’s nude it’s nice to have an up close view.
LOTS of ladies there. We stayed about 3 hours and only saw 2 dancers repeat on the stage.
When we were approached by the ladies they all talked to my girlfriend. Which I get. Make sure she’s into it before talking to the guy. We had some good fun with a few of them. I ALWAYS make sure I see a dancer on the stage before getting a lapper or private dance. If she’s great on the pole she’ll be great on your pole. :).
One final thing. I realize we all have budgets but a couple of stiffs near us never tipped. Not one dollar. Nursed their one drink all night. If you can’t afford at least a buck for each dancer maybe you should stay home and let someone else have your prime seat at the rail. IMO. My GF and I always tip when a girl first comes out on stage. And then it depends on the quality of the dancing how much more we may tip during her 2 songs.
Also, there were 3-4 other couples there. Maybe more that we didn’t see. I would highly recommend the Palomino for couples.
Jimmy, thanks for the report!
I am heading to Vegas in a couple weeks, flying on Saturday and landing late afternoon/early evening. What are my best options for Palomino that night if my buddy doesn’t want to go with me? I know they don’t usually do the flying solo on a Saturday. Maybe call and try to jump in with another group if their shuttle is coming close to my hotel?
What about Sapphire – should I jump on their website and book a solo package after I land? Thanks!
Nunya, yes, you should be fine if you’re flexible on pick-up time and willing to walk to a hotel next door or across the street.
And yes on the package at Sapphire. Even I book a package there to get the reserved seat if I’m going after 9 pm. Just be sure to call them and let them know that you just booked a package for that night if you’ve booked the same day you want to go, especially if you’ve booked within a few hours of when you want pick-up.
Do you know if Lily, the dancer you featured from Palomino, will be in dancing anytime during July 7th to July 11th?
Roy, Lily is definitely still dancing at Palomino and she dances full-time. So she is almost certainly going to be at the club a couple of those nights.
You can always call the club and ask if she’s in the house. I’d call around midnight. Lily is not only beautiful, she’s a delight.
I asked about the Palomino a few months ago and we finally went this past Monday. It was absolutely amazing! The girls were all ridiculously hot and had mad skills on the pole. So great for couples! As a woman I wasn’t sure how it would be but those girls made me feel so sexy too. Now I want to check out the clubs in my local state but my husband says nothing even comes close to our experience at the Palomino. I can’t wait to go back to Vegas just to go back to this club.
Blondie, thanks for the review. I really appreciate hearing from a woman about the club.
Rafael: Sapphire is best if you’re looking for a high-mileage lap dance scene. Palomino has a better stage show and less expensive private dances. Both clubs have lots of gorgeous dancers on a Thursday night. Sapphire has more dancers than any club in Vegas because it’s so big. It’s impossible to go wrong in either club.
Arnold, on a thursday night which one is better (in number of girls, service, how crowd it is), Sapphire or Palomino? Tomorrow is my last day on Vegas and I would like it ro be the best possible.
do you know if the the Palomino will be doing anything special for the 50th anniversary this year? My friends and I live on the east coast and would love to make a trip for that. Thanks!
Mike, the owner and manager say definitely yes, there will be something special, but they still haven’t decided what. I’ll be writing about it as soon as the info is available.
Thanks for your amazing informations.
Friend of mine and me come to Vegas in June (we are from Germany and Italy)
We Start in Vegas on a Monday and For birthday present I surprise him with a cabana at Bare Pool Mirage during the day. After that I would like to organize something special in a gentleman’s club. What club do you recommend on a Monday evening? How is Palomino on this day, because of their good prices for privat dances?
Can we pay for companionship, without dancing?
Snolli, it’s tourist season and Palomino will be excellent on a Monday evening. You can definitely pay for companionship. Just ask a girl if she’d like a drink, get her whatever she orders and slip her a twenty dollar bill. She’ll stay with you for two or three songs. Slip her another twenty to keep her for longer and she may give you more time the second time.
Be sure to tell the club that it’s your friend’s birthday. You’ll likely get a premium table and extra attention from the host and top girls.
Nunya: Just ask a host if she’s in the house. A lot of Palomino dancers come in late – midnight and after. I’ve never gambled at Jerry’s Nugget, but I love their coffee shop. Great desserts and good Greek food. Palomino’s posted policy is “no in and out.” I don’t know if they’ll bend the policy if you ask them.
Well, as often happens in Vegas, things don’t go as initially planned. Due to a variety of reasons, did not make it to Palomino on Sunday. Ended up looking to go to a club on Monday around 2:00 pm. Figured at that time of day Sapphire was our best choice – I’ll write a report over there in a day or so.
Regarding Krystal, I guess from what I’ve read that the club won’t know if she’s working until she shows up? If it’s say 10pm and I haven’t seen her, can you ask the DJ?
Also, is Jerry’s Nugget a good place to gamble? I like the low minimum options so maybe Ill go there early to gamble, then walk over. Will Palomino charge me $10 at that point? Can you leave Palomino and come back, like with a hand stamp? If I went in at 7:30 and it was just too dead for me, could I go gamble at Jerry’s for a while and then come back?
Thanks! What are my chances of seeing Krystal (January 2018 Dancer of the Month) on Sunday night (3/31) at Palomino?
Nunya, Krystal dances full-time, so she usually only takes off a couple of nights a week. Since Sunday is still March Madness, odds are better than even of seeing Krystal.
She is charming and even more beautiful than her photos.
Thanks. If I get crazy and hit a third club, it will likely be Sapphire Monday night (4/1). Would I still need a package to get a table, say after 10 pm? I’ve never minded doing long walkabouts in Sapphire, circling a number of times to see as many dancers as I can, then letting my chosen one(s) take me off to some dark corner (I don’t like Sapphires group VIP with drink add-on). Also, for future reference, what does a dance cost with the featured porn star, in-club nights and pool afternoons?
Thanks for all your info!
Nunya, the problem is the club reserves most of the tables. So you’d have to get a seat on the stage or one of the little seats against a wall, and those usually fill up around 9 pm. If you don’t mind walking around scoping out the girls and waiting for a free seat to open, which at 10 pm to midnight/1 am can take a long time, you can get by with calling for the free club limo to get free admission. (Technically, the limo is free only if you buy a 2-for-1 drink ticket for $18 or $19, but that’s a no-brainer.) You could also do something like get a host to open up a reserved table for you by slipping him a tip.
A twenty would definitely work. Probably a ten would work as well on a Monday night. He won’t accept the tip on a weekend night or if there’s some reason he can’t give you a table on a week night–like maybe he’s got 300 VIPs arriving at 11 pm.
The porn stars usually won’t do a $20 lap dance. After that, it depends on the star. Most want you to do an hour with them in a Skybox or VIP booth for $700 to $1000. Pool afternoons you can often get the star for less, some 30 minutes, some even 10-15 minutes at the normal Sapphire VIP rate.
Awesome,thanks for the detailed response. So at Palomino on Sunday using their limo, if I go before 8 I won’t have to pay the $30 but the club would be very empty until after 9 pm. After 8 I’d pay the $30 but get two drink tickets. I think I will have someone with me but if not I’ll check out the flying solo.
Then on Tuesday using the Deja Vu limo, anytime before 9 I have to pay $20 cover but after 9 no cover and $2 drinks. So if I’m not going to have 10 drinks before 9 pm, might as well wait. 😃. One other Deja Vu question – with the 15 minutes for $150, does the 2 drink requirement fall under the $2 price? I hate when they are $30-$40 drink cost to the private room.
Thanks again, great site!
Nunya, yes. Palomino will have around a dozen dancers in the club on a Sunday night at 8 pm, with more arriving every half hour or so. The stage show will go on even if there are few people in the club and every girl here is a good dancer. The club will be getting busy by 9 pm. 8 pm will have only a few guys, but more will be arriving as the hour goes on. On Sunday, March 31, things may get busy earlier than usual because of the crowd in town for March Madness.
I believe the club is now giving three drink tickets for the $30 cover. I’ve got to change that on the club review page.
Tuesday at Deja Vu, correct. Yes, on $2 Tuesday, the private-bedroom 2-drink minimum costs $2 for each of the two drinks as long as it’s a beer, well or call drink.
I think you’ll have a great time.
Love your site! My boyfriend and I are planning to go to Palomino on a Thursday night and have a question about packages/VIP.
Sounds like the $180 two of a kind package is our best best with a reserved table, mixers, etc. However, we also would love to do the 30 minute bedroom dance, so that’s $500+ already before any Lap dances or stage tipping (which we love doing), plus that’s a ton of booze we won’t get through.
Would you recommend we take our chances and not get a VIP package in advance and see if they’ll give us a discount on one at the door? Or contact the club for a custom package and let them know we’ll be getting VIP dances once there?
Also sorry, I know this is a super long comment!! LOVE your content on women visiting strip clubs, including the couple from Arizona. It would be great to have a more in-depth post on advice for women, like what to wear/not wear, dancers’ pet peeves about when women visit, or maybe a first hand account from a woman who visits strip clubs and their experience? It’s so hard to find information on this, but your site is the best by far. Thank you again! Thanks to your site, I love going to strip clubs with my boyfriend.
Anna, Palomino is now getting to standing room only by 9:30-10 pm. Since this is a date for your boyfriend and you, I’d recommend getting a package in advance so you have a VIP table for the night.
I would contact the club for a custom package. Say you’re looking for something like the Two of a Kind package but you intend to get the bedroom dance. Could you prepay for the bottle for the bedroom dance and maybe get a break on the Two of a Kind package or something with less booze? Tell them you enjoy a cocktail but that’s a lot of booze for the two of you.
I think they’ll work with you. I think you’ll find getting a VIP package also saves you money overall. For example, you get unlimited free mixers with that instead of paying for each bottle of water or juice or soft drinks. What dancers want most of all when you invite them for a drink is usually a bottle of water. This way you can entertain dancers for free. You will be much appreciated by the dancers for that.
For a first-hand account of a trip to a strip club by a woman, see I Took My Wife to a Vegas Strip Club and Lived to Tell About It. My wife wrote the text in gold. It’s about what she expected vs what the dancers and club were actually like.
Just quickly, my wife says to tell you that you can wear anything you want, from jeans and a shirt to the kind of dress you’d wear to a nice nightclub, but clubs seem to treat customers better who dress up a little. Maybe a sport coat for a guy and slacks with a silk blouse, or a nightclub dress, for a woman.
She says what dancers complain about is women who get angry at their boyfriends or husbands for looking at the dancers in the club or getting dances from the dancers. Some women who think they can handle it just get jealous after they actually arrive. Dancers have told us stories about getting screamed at by wives and girlfriends!
And my wife says to compliment the dancers. At Palomino, the dancers are actually great dancers and acrobats in addition to being sexy and beautiful. Let them know how beautiful you find their dancing and pole dancing. Let them know if you like their outfit. Let them know if you find them charming and fun to talk to. Being a dancer is a tough job, and everyone appreciates a genuine compliment.
Heading to Vegas this Sunday, 3/31 – staying 3 nights. Planning to hit two clubs – which ones and which nights would you recommend? I like to go early enough to avoid cover charges but don’t want to be 1 of 3 guys in the whole place. Also, how much is a pitcher of beer at Palamino? If I had to do the two drink minimum, would they let me do a pitcher for those tickets?
Nunya, Palomino is a great club and I highly recommend it. They won’t sell you a pitcher of beer though except in a package. You might want to get the Flying Solo package for $60. That includes round-trip limo transport, a line pass, three drinks and free admission. If you call the club at 702-642-2984 you can probably work out a custom solo package that includes a pitcher of beer for that price.
I was at Palomino Thursday night and the place was packed by 10:30 pm. If you go on March 31, you probably want to get there by 9:30ish pm to get a good seat because it’s still March Madness. On Monday or Tuesday I’d get there by 10-11 pm. If you go at 8 pm, you can get in for no cover but you may be one of only a few guys in the place. You can go to Palomino any night of the week and it will be great.
You might want to consider a high-mileage lap dance club for Tuesday night. Deja Vu has $2 Tuesdays, which means every beer, well and call drink is $2 all night. That gets big crowds and a Saturday night quality/quantity of dancers. Both $20 lap dances and private-bedroom dances are super high contact, and the private bedroom dance rates start at 15 minutes for $150. That’s a great deal in Vegas. After 9 pm admission is free if you arrive by the free club limo and you also get a free drink coupon. The party will be in full swing by roughly 10-10:30 pm and keep growing until 2-3 am. Before 9 pm admission is $20, even if you arrive by the free club limo, because of the open bar, and the crowd will be small.
Sapphire is another great bet any night of the week for gorgeous dancers and high-mileage lap dances. You can’t get into their private Skyboxes for less than an hour at $800, but the lap dance orgy is a lot of fun on the main floor. There will be about 120-130 dancers in the club the nights you’re in town. Unless you want to go when the club is nearly empty, I’d recommend a package for the reserved VIP seat, drink discount, free limo, etc and get there around 10-10:30 pm. Otherwise, if you don’t mind a smaller crowd, get there just before 9 pm to get a seat on one of the stages. In that case, be sure to take the free limo to get the buy-1-get-1-free drink coupon. Your admission will be free as long as you arrive by the club limo.
Arnold, not sure if you have this knowledge but doesn an Amber fromt midwest still work at the Palmino? Shoulder length Auburn hair and curvy. Wife and I had a great time with her last September and hoping to go back ASAP.
Steve, I believe Amber is still there but let me confirm with the club and get back to you.
You’re the man!
Steve, Amber hasn’t been at the club the past few weeks but everyone thinks she still dances there. I’m watching for her and will let you know if she’s spotted.
I had a similar unpleasant experience as 7Y13r above. I was in town for playoff football with 2 other friends. They hadn’t been to the Palomino before (went to CH3 night b4). I talked them into going. We went to jerry’s nugget via lyft and played craps for a bit. Walked across the street around 9:30. It looked slow from what we could tell.
the bouncer asked how we got there and i told him. He said $30. I said it should be $10 due to lyft, etc. He caught a nasty attitude and said it’s $30 and “I decide what we charge and if you don’t like it then tough” – we proceeded to leave and headed to CH3. F the palomino. They have been on steady decline.
Arnold, if you talk to mgmt feel free to relay. It was Sunday night 1/13 when it took place.
Chris, I’ll pass it on to management.
But Palomino is not in decline. Next time, ask to talk to a manager and tell the manager where you read about the $10 admission.
Thanks Arnold. Love your website (and your blackjack info). The big lug that was working Sunday night January 13th sure put a blackeye on the palomino for me. My guys proceeded to spend quite a bit at CH3 after the strong arm tactics by the door guy. Should be pretty easy to figure out who was working that night. I’m heading back to Vegas for a week for March Madness with a group of 6. After this last incident I’m not sure if we’re going to give them our business.
Chris, if you do decide to go back, if you let me know (shoot me an email) I will contact the club about improving your experience.
Hi Arnold, I’m loving your site! Me and my husband are headed to Vegas for a midweek trip in May and are planning to do a Two of a Kind package at Palomino. What would be the best night to go? Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday? It’s my first time to a strip club and my husbands first time to one in Las Vegas.
Blondie: All three nights should be good at Palomino. Monday would probably be the busiest and Wednesday the most relaxed.
Is the 15 mins VIP for $150 still available? I noticed that it’s missing on the summary break down on the review for Palomino and also not listed in the Best VIP for your money article.
B-Wizzle, the 15 minutes for $150 private-bedroom dance is still available at Deja Vu. It’s not a standard private-bedroom dance price at Palomino at this time, though it’s still a standard price for a nude, high-mileage private-booth dance.
Fifteen for $150 is definitely available at Palomino. I think the sign on the wall lists 3 songs for $100, 15 minutes for $150, a 30 minute and a 60 minute. One girl wanted double for my wife and I (she could probably get it as she was the hottest girl in the club at the time) but most accept $150, especially if it’s early (before 10pm) like you said. A $20 tip was most appreciated after a wild time.
Hi Arnold. Did you have a chance to ask around to see when and if there are any special events for Palominos 50 year anniversary? Thanks and keep up the awesome work on this website!
B-Wizzle, Palomino is going to do something, just not sure what yet.
Thanks Arnold. Lesson learned!
We took a Lyft to Jerry’s Nugget because we didn’t want to wait for the club’s transport and tipped him well to prevent any hard feelings.
The Palomino doorman asked us how we got to the club which kind of threw me off since I didn’t think it would matter. I don’t know why but I said we drove to Jerry’s Nugget. And since we couldn’t produce car keys, he caught my fib and we ended up being charged $30 per person with no included drinks. Arnold: Any reason why it would matter how we got to the club if we made it to Jerry’s Nugget on our own?
Apart from that, the other bouncers were friendly and there was a good selection of girls.
7y13r, yes, it makes a difference. If you said you had taken a Lyft to Jerry’s Nugget, he would have known that the club didn’t have to pay a cabbie a big tip for bringing you. Usually that would mean you could get in for $10.
He assumed a cabby was collecting $30 per person for bringing you, so he had to collect the higher cover.
The cabby spiffs make strip club covers complicated in Vegas.
Arnold, Trip update – Palomino Tuesday night. Arrived with my wife at 7:30. $10 cover as we drove ourselves and one of us would not be drinking alot. Around 10 customers and 8-10 girls. An “older” girl (late 20’s instead of 19) caught our eyes on stage. Ashley, nice natural C cups and super tight everywhere else. When the dancers started repeating for 15 minutes, my wife went to the washroom and Ashley came off stage and followed her in. I was hoping they would come out together and they did, after meeting and talking about what a threesome in the curtained booth might evolve into. We invited her to sit and have a drink so we could see what her personality was like. So off we went for 15 minutes. The booths are different since our last visit – a bit lower with a heavier curtain. Still private. My wife unbuttomed her sweater and Ashley told her to take it off. A few minutes later the bra came off and I had two sets to play with along with Ashley’s tight legs and bum. A reminder for couples – look for a dancer that may have a bit more life experience (late 20’s to early 30’s while the assets are still firm and holding up) and talk first about what she will allow and how much participation the wife/girlfriend can get into.
cancon thanks for sharing your experience. I’m going in august with my husband and hoping for a similar experience. I’ll definitely be on the look out for ashley.
Awesome site. I never would have discovered Palominos if it hadn’t been for your review. I went tonight (Wednesday) and all the women in there were beautiful. I got dances from both Katie and Thailand in the VIP 3 songs. They were great and high contact. I also liked that there wasn’t a bar tab attached to the VIP dances. The only part I didn’t like is that it’s in a sketchy part of town.
Hey Arnold, figured it’s time to ask the expert. Will be visiting Vegas for a friends Bachelor party and this is going to be one of our stops. Question is: our buddy is a big Boob obsessed gentleman, but is not a fan of extra enhancements if you get my drift. Any naturally stacked girl we need to make sure to set him up with to make his night special? Also an old buddy from Vegas thinks he remembers getting free drinks here with his $30 cover is that true? Nobody in our group has ever been here so we’re not sure what to expect. Thanks a bunch!
Hayden, the $30 cover always includes two free drinks. You’ll definitely see both natural big boobs and enhanced big boobs at Palomino. I think you’ll find it easy to make his night special.
Thanks Arnold. Just an update of my trip:
Went there this past Sunday and everything went pretty smoothly. Booked the limo through their website, the driver texted me to confirm pickup time and location. We did get there a little past 8 pm so we were charged the $30 fee but we also got the two drink vouchers that were easy to use without any hassle. It was pretty slow since it was an early Sunday night but I prefer it that way. I did go with my gf and I noticed about half of the people there were couples.
Sat on the rail and there was a few that put on a great show (spinning, climbing, doing tricks up high on the pole). There was one girl in particular, sadly I don’t remember her name, that clearly put on a better show than the rest. This place was great as that’s what my gf likes about strip clubs, the entertaining pole dancing. We weren’t looking for a lap dance or anything so it isn’t a big deal but we did notice that no girl approached us but approached all the other couples. Maybe because we were a bit younger (mid twenties)? We were both tipping and my girl always has fun and is all smiles, but she also does have a resting bitch face so maybe that spooked them away haha.
Anyways thanks for all the info, made a right choice picking this place. Maybe we can give it another try when it’s more busy, I’m assuming the girls performances are better as well?
Also unrelated question, I notice girls come and sit on the guys laps, how does that work? Are they just having a conversation and they go on their way at the end? I’m assuming it would be the norm to tip them after or do they charge you a set fee like a lap dance would be? Is buying them a drink enough to keep them on their lap? We were people watching and were curious about that. Thanks again.
Was going to go ahead and book the limo to get to the club but I noticed at the bottom of the page it states that there will be a “2 drink minimum purchase required at the door regardless of how guests arrived.” Do you know if this applies even before 8 pm? Or is it set regardless of day and time. Thanks for all your work and information.
PV: This should not apply before 8 pm. Otherwise, it applies no matter how you arrive (even via their limo). There will usually be an extra cover charge if you arrive by cab, Uber, Lyft or someone else’s limo.
All Vegas strip clubs technically have a two-drink minimum, but many are loose about enforcement.They get stricter when you arrive via cab or rideshare (where they have to pay a spiff to the driver), or via the club limo (because they have to pay their limo driver), or when crowded, or when crowds are expected (like on weekends or holidays).
Happy Holidays Arnold!
I remember seeing some old photos of Palomino “back-in-the-day” on their Instagram account. Caption within the photo was the fact their 50th anniversary will be next year in 2019. Do you have any idea if they’ll have any sort of celebration and when? My buddy and I love this place and are planning to go there again next year.
B Wizzle, I’ll check on that and get back to you. I can’t imagine that they won’t have some kind of celebration. I love the club too.
Arnold first off thanks for the great site and reviews. There are just so many options this really narrows down the list where you know what to expect at each place.
Reading all of the reviews of all of the clubs I chose Palominos. I was in Vegas by myself so I opted for the “Flying Solo” package. Since it was same day, I called the club and they were super friendly. I arranged for the Limo to pick up at 9, but told them I wouldn’t mind at all if they have others being picked up at the same time. Prior to pickup the driver texted to confirm the appointment, then 30 minutes before and 5 minutes before he also texted to let me know his progress. He arrived exactly at 9 and luckily they also arranged to pick up a party of 5 and a party of 2 at the same strip hotel. The Limo was huge so we weren’t cramped for space. I never looked at the address, but it was pretty far from the strip.
Arrived and checked in. The driver told the cashier of the different packages and no problems what so ever.
The place is not huge, as you have read in other reviews. One main stage shaped like a barbell with two poles and a side stage. It was a Tuesday and 40 degrees outside and raining, so it was not crowded at all. I would guess maybe 30 patrons total, and probably 15 girls. Flying solo I picked a seat right on the stage. Standard three song set that ends in total nudity.
I would guess at all times there were about 50% of the men there with a girl sitting on their lap. Within 2 minutes of getting there I was approached but told her I just got there and was going to get a drink and watch for a while. Girls were 7-10’s in my opinion. After about 10 minutes she came back and sat in my lap. You can see the girls going lap to lap, stay a couple few songs then move on if they don’t get dances. Same thing with mine, after a song of talking she went into the prices. Of course they push for the VIP dances that start at 3 songs for $100. For this first girl I opted just for a topless dance. She took me to the back area, which was completed deserted and sat for the next song. During that song she really tried to upsell to the vip dances. Stuck with the $20 topless and she gave a great dance, but low mileage (no touching above the waist). Ended and went back to the stage. After not even 10 minutes the cutest 19 year old you have ever seen plopped herself on my lap. After talking for a song or so, she really went on the sales pitch. She was really pushing the high priced long vips. I finally agreed to do a topless, and she said “do I look like a $20 girl?”. The answer is NO, She then offered 4 songs for the $100, so how could I resist. Went upstairs to one of the curtained couches and she gave an awesome 4 song dance, super high mileage. Completely worth the money.
After that I watched the stage show and got a few topless dances.
I give the place 5 out of 5 stars! Super nice, friendly and hot girls and no problem what so ever with the flying solo. They do upsell, but they are just trying to make a living. I ended up saying no thanks to probably 10 other girls, but it was no problem at all. They just moved to the next guy.
When I wanted to leave, the limo was gone. Rather than waiting I just took a taxi. This place is really out there. Thanks again for the great info.
I have read on line that this club has been taken over by Cubans and that it is a lot like a brothel. Have you noticed a big change in the last couple of years?
BK, it sounds like you are reading about the club before the new owners took over in 2005. The club is owned by a family of Vegas attorneys who aren’t Cuban, and it’s not like a brothel. It’s a strip club full of gorgeous dancers and with high standards of service.
I am taking my wife the first weekend in January, I was just curious as to how much contact could my wife get in the private VIP dances such as 30 minutes. Would the stripper make out with my wife? We are looking for high contact and are curious as to how much action my wife will get.
Mark, it would typically be full-body contact if your wife indicates she’s into contact. Likely mutual touching above the waist, sides of hips. A dancer will often give a kiss, though making out would be very unusual. I’ve even seen below the waist contact with the customer through clothes.
Just came across your site as the Mrs and I have a trip middle of the month. If it is a slow season will the club experience be sub par? Or are the dancer looking to cash up for their shopping for holidays.
Eduard, Palomino will be one of the best clubs in town whenever you go. It’s never sub-par. They’ll still have gorgeous dancers, only you’ll see maybe 60 dancers, depending on exactly when you go, instead of 130. The ratio will be similar at all other clubs in town.
But the stage show will still be outstanding and when it’s slower, dancers’ prices come down and the whole scene is more relaxed. They take more time with you. I prefer it.
Went with my wife and another couple here on a Monday. It was pretty dead. Are Sunday or Tuesdays better than Mon?
Skip, Monday is usually good at Palomino Club, but we’re in the slowest period of the year now for Vegas tourists. Vegas and the clubs will be busy for National Finals Rodeo and then slow until the holidays.
When did you go and what time?
About a month ago. Prob got there around 930pm left around 1130. Rail was full but tables empty. We left disappointed.
Skip, 11:30 is still early in the Vegas strip clubs, and 9:30 on a Monday is really early, especially at this time of the year.
Tim, the regular VIP private booth prices are consistent, but the private bedrooms and theme rooms vary widely by dancer.
There are a handful of stunning dancers in the club who will quote you a price of $1300 or even higher, especially on busy weekend nights. But you can also find beautiful dancers who will still quote you the old prices, especially on weekdays or after you’ve turned down a few dancers who quoted higher prices.
Hi Arnold, based on your recommendations I visited Palomino in October and the regular booth vip prices haven’t changed. However, I am going back in a few days and was wondering if you can confirm the themed room vip prices? Have they gone up to $800 for the hour or what Jake is quoting for $1300!? I understand that they are independent contractors but it would great if you could give me an approximation/average. Thank you for this amazing website.
Great site, Arnold. My husband and I are making the journey from Australia soon. Not to be a prude but if we go to a VIP bedroom can we request she leave her bottoms on? Or is that a no no.
Liv, that’s fine. Any dancer will be happy to tease you no matter how you’re most comfortable.
I will be renting a Ferrari for the weekend – is Palomino’s valet parking lot safe for parking such a car late at night? Who has the safest valet parking?
Doig, Palomino’s valet parking lot is well-lit, well-guarded, well-fenced and absolutely safe. The valet will place your car where he can keep a close eye on it. Don’t worry about it.
If I can convince my wife to go to Palomino, will she receive high mileage attention? She is 51 and average build and appearance. Or will the younger dancers avoid her? I want to make sure she has a positive experience and leaves feeling like the girls liked her. It is an illusion I know. But last thing would be for her to leave feeling like she wasn’t attractive to the girls.
Philip, the dancers will be friendly and sensitive to what your wife wants. If your wife wants high-mileage attention, she’ll get it. My wife is 60 and the dancers are wonderful to her.
Your wife should go out of her way to let the dancers know she likes them. Have her tip the dancers on stage herself. And don’t hesitate to ask a host or waitress to send over dancers you like. Once you break the ice, the dancers will all know your wife wants to be approached.
Thank you for the info Arnold. She’s nervous about going and fitting in. Your reply helps. I don’t want any dances myself. Been there done that. But she has a curious side and this seems like a fun way to explore it.
Philip, your wife will see many other couples at Sapphire of all ages. My wife was nervous too but felt comfortable right away. I think you’ll both have a great time.
Palomino was my go to place. They prices have skyrocketed. Girls are all asking for $1000 for an hour and a $300 bottle. I had this happen in October and 4 different girls all quoted same price. I said, it’s supposed to be $450 i said. They all were that was old pricing, etc. I said no thanks and just had a few beers and left. Beer prices are still good though.
The only dancer’s name I remember was a cuban girl named Nana. Caveat emptor fellas.
I think Babe’s is going to be my new place.
Jake, there are plenty of girls at Palomino who take far less than $1000 an hour, which I would never pay. Once you say no to a few girls at this price, you’ll start hearing lower prices.
Arnold, it used to be cheaper I agree. Loved the place. It’s definitely changed over past 18 months or so. I got just as much play at Babe’s in back room as Palomino. Plus, not trying to jack up prices. I get it. Palomino is super popular now so they’re trying to take advantage. I’m sure they’ll do fine without my $$.
Jake, it’s mostly that dancers have been suing strip clubs that try to control dance prices and Palomino is determined not to be sued. The club has gained a lot of exceptionally high quality dancers and they can and do ask more.
But the club itself has never even raised its beer prices from the old days.
The club is terrific, you just have to be aware that a number of the top dancers get top prices for private bedroom dances.
Wife and I will only be in town one night and would like to visit the Palomino, but wanted to go early, 5 or 6 to leave time for other adventures that night. What can we expect for stage shows and girls that early? Thanks for your help.
Lloyd, there will constantly be a girl on stage and new dancers keep arriving so you won’t see the same dancer on stage twice. The stage show will be exceptional even early. I think you and your wife will have a great time.
First time at the Pal in mid october, 2018. Sunday night around 10:30. Took an Uber to Jerry’s Nugett and walked across the street, thanks to this site. I paid $10 to enter. Place was not very busy, but still had people there. No seats at the main stage were available, other areas didnt look open. I went up to the bar to by my $7 miller lite bottle. Lots of groups of girls around room still standing around. As I ordered my drink, I was moved in on by two girls. Pretty attractive I must say. Didnt get the names but it was one black chick and one latino girl. The high pressure sales act started immediately. They wanted to go the VIP room after the standard questions. I balked, saying, i just got there and still havent even gotten a drink yet. They would not take no for an answer so the pressed on. Eventually I caved for a tour of the club, which i found out to be a tour of the VIP rooms. We went upstairs and they showed me the “small” room. I was pulled in the room and they immediately closed the drape and started “getting close”. Knowing what was going on, i took a step back and opened the drape and asked to see the other rooms. They looked a little surprised, but i wasnt about to pay for a VIP dance I never agreed on. So they brought me down the hall to the “best” room with the full bed. I wouldnt move past the door way and they kept ushering me in. I held my ground, saying i can see the room very well. They plead again for the VIP dance and I said for the 15th time, I just got to the club and i wanted to watch the show before deciding on a dance, let alone the VIP room. The leader of the two girls finally realized I wasnt budging and literally turned her back on me and walked away. I was kind of surprised by the rude act. Her partner and I made small talk on the way back down to the club, and honestly i would of got a dance with her if she asked later.
Finally found a seat at the stage. Watched 4-5 girls go by, many very attractive girls. No contact (eye or otherwise) and it was kind of a bum out. After they were done they went straight to a table of regulars they must of known. No one else asked me about a dance. I figured out that lead girl was standing on the wings with the other girls and pegged me a cheapskate. Realizing this, I left.
Sorry Palomino.. I wont be back.
Doesn’t sound anything like the club I go to weekly.
Trip Report for Saturday 10/6/2018
Was asked about my transport choice, told them self delivered via rental car and admission was $10.
Last time I was here was in 2011, the remodels have seriously changed it. Heavy crowd, dozens of dancers. Getting rail time can take some patience and effort.
As our esteemed host says, the stage shows here are great. Pole work, movements and grinds and the lot. Downside with the involved show and the size of the crowd is that there’s less likelihood of personal contact at the rail.
Jonnie Walker Black Labe was $13, average for a Vegas club, bottle of Guinness = $8.
With the increase in dancers/customers comes an increase in your chance of experiencing hustle. As can always happen at a club, some dancers say they won’t do couch dances, expecting you to go upstairs right off the bat. Some have friends that they “always dance with” and expect you to jump at the chance for two gals. I myself almost never have two at one time.
Couch dances in the downstairs area are $20, upstairs has curtained booths that start at 3 songs/$100. Arnold lists the prices on his site pretty accurately.
My first dance was in the downstairs area. Gal named Cecilia started in the middle of a song (warning sign!). After a song and a half, she says “That’ll be $80.” Uh, wha…? Spent a few minutes arguing with her saying “You said you wanted four dances.” First off, no I didn’t; second, even if I had, she only danced for one and a half songs. Normally, I go along to get along, but this time I held my ground and paid her the forty.
Recuperated from this and encountered a great gal with a fantastic stage show named GiGi. Threw caution to the wind and took her upstairs for a 15 minute dance. Top shelf all the way. Friendly, fun, took suggestions for the occasional pose.
Spent some time at the bar and some at the rail. Got another “meh” level couch dance.
The next young lady went by Brooklyn. Waited for the next song, close and intimate while also being fun.
After her stage set, took her upstairs and finished with another top 1% of my lap dance history.
As always, YMMV, but I have to say, with their pricing structures, furnishings and dancers, this place rivals the Rhino. The only advantage I’d give to SR over Palomino is closeness/contact at the rail.
And to reiterate, if you have the chance to cuddle with GiGi or Brooklyn, take it.
Gotta say thanks for all the input and dedication you’ve put into this over the years. Reading through all of these comments was awesome, you’ve helped a ton of people out with your advice and tips.
I wanted to ask you for input on an upcoming trip my girlfriend and I are taking. We’ll be in Vegas October 22-24 and celebrating my birthday on the 23rd. We’ve been to several clubs in the Midwest and usually have a great time. We’re leaning towards checking out Palominos when we’re in town because of the value and the rave reviews above. I wanted to check if there’s any benefit to going to Palominos or other clubs on Birthdays. Any specials offered?
Thanks in advance. We’ve never been to Vegas and want to have a blast.
Andrew, I’d let them know it’s your birthday. I’m not sure what they’ll do for you, but they’re sure to give you something extra, even if just a better table.
Arnold – – as previous, will be in LV mid-January. So, latest question re Palomino’s: as a naive old fart going solo and who won’t know his way around the town or the strip clubs – would I be better off going to P’s on a Thurs or Sun night, rather than a Sat night in January? Asking, as I wonder if a Sat night as an out-of-town first-nighter might turn out to be a bit more overwhelming for me that I’d like. Would a Thursday night be easier for me to manage?
Greg L, Palomino Club will make it easy for you whichever night you go. Thursday or Sunday night will be busy, but less packed than Friday or Saturday. That can make for a more relaxed experience.
Hi Arnold…. you’ve given me great advice in the past, thank you. Pal has become my favorite club, though I will go elsewhere sometimes for variety. In Spring of this year had a great time over a couple nights with a dancer at Pal. Is it okay to ask a waitress/bouncer once I get there, on my upcoming trip in early October, if she is still working there or working that night? She went by the name of Frenchie. I will be in Vegas three nights, plan two nights at Pal and one elsewhere. Either LD or Sapphire. Thanks Arnold for this great website!
Scott, absolutely it’s fine to ask a waitress or bouncer or host if the dancer is working that night. Another person who will almost always know for sure is the DJ.
Also, thanks for the feedback, much appreciated.
Hi, Arnold. Thank you for all of the great information on this site. Your reviews directed me to Palomino Club when I was in town, and I visited on Thursday, Sept 13.
I arrived about 9:30. The tables were half-filled, most seats on the rail were taken, and there were lots of dancers (at least 25, maybe many more). I sat at the rail, and the dancers steadily came by and asked about a dance or VIP. Not too high pressure, but steady. I got a lot of practice politely declining dances, and also got dances from three different girls.
I was having a pretty good time. Then, I was fortunate enough to meet Reagan, and my evening immediately went from pretty good to fantastic. Beautiful, charming, and about the best pole dancer I have ever seen (she reminded me of Olympic gymnasts on the rings or bars), she completely captivated me. We had a fabulous VIP experience.
I should also mention that the VIP rooms can fill up here on a busy night. Reagan and I got one okay, but it seems that a line to use the rooms had formed by about 2-3am.
Arrived at 8pm on Sunday of the labor Day weekend. Only a couple of people there but the dancers had started. Sat through 12 – 15 dancers with a couple of repeats. My wife and I had our eyes on a cute blond but she must have been busy in the VIP. We had a 15 minute dance with a a mature blonde (mature being closer to 30 than 20). Great hands on performance but still reserving some priviledges for the bedroom she said.
A – – okay, so (tentative):
Wed, Jan 16 – – Sapphire’s (8PM-2AM apx)
Thurs, Jan 17 – – Little Darlings (8PM-2AM apx)
Fri, Jan 18 – – Deja Vu (8PM-2AM apx)
Sat, Jan 19 – – Palomino’s (8PM-2AM apx)
any weaknesses in proposed schedule?
Greg, I foresee a terrific weekend for you.
Palomino versus Sapphire?
Meaning…if I’m looking for max opportunities (mileage) at Palomino in January – – ought I schedule my visit to Palomino on Wed night and Sapphire on Sat night – – or reverse this, visiting Sapphire on Wed night and Palomino on Sat night?
Greg, both clubs will be great both nights.
Thanks Arnold for all the info on this site. I typically visit LD’s when in town (I don’t drink much) but based on your recommendations I checked out Palomino last Friday. I drove myself and paid the $10 cover which is a great deal. Friendly staff and girls with an outstanding stage show make for an enjoyable night. I got a bunch of lap and VIP dances before meeting Leticia. She hung out with me for most of the night and we made up a game of which customers would spend the most on her. She asked me who to approach and then reported back. Kinda interesting to see what goes on in a stripper’s mind and how they do stereotype. Bottom line is no matter what you look like, be nice and a gentleman and your money will go far.
I had such a great time that I returned the next night. I met the fabulous Regan Reily and her famous stage show. Then I spent the rest of the night with Shelby. I met her the night before and she hoped I would return. Very fun and friendly lady with a natural body and minimal tattoos. We did the VIP before trying the private bedroom (first for her as she is new to the club). Great experience with mirrors all around. Pricey considering it was more at peak hours but she made it her mission to make me spill in my pants. Good times.
Nate, thanks for the great feedback.
Arnold, are there 15-minute private room dances at P’s? info above conflicts on this a bit, as I read it. cost for 15-minutes, if it be, and any mileage differences between 15 and the twice as costly 30 minutes?
Greg, you can get a 15-minute private bedroom dance at Palomino’s a slower times and weeknights when the girls are selling fewer 30- and 60-minute dances. When there’s a line for 30- and 60-minute dances, forget about getting a 15-minute dance. The cost is dancer by dancer, but think in general of roughly half to 2/3 what a half hour costs. Mileage will be comparable, meaning excellent.
is there ever any kissing that takes place in any of the clubs’ VIP or private rooms?
Greg, I’ve had a dancer ask me to kiss her breasts. Other than that, no.
In your review you say “If you drive yourself to the club, the admission fee for out-of-towners who arrive by their own car is $10, but you may also be charged a two-drink minimum at the door ($30) at peak hours. If you’re charged the two-drink minimum, you’ll receive two drink tickets to give the cocktail waitress.
And the club offers free admission, with no cover charge at the door, if you arrive by your own transportation or the free club limo before 8 pm”
It seem confusing to me is it only free if you’re local and drive yourself? also free limo but not solo? They said they always charge 2 drink minimum unless you buy a package
Rick, it’s free for everyone who arrives by their own transportation before 8 pm. After 8 pm, there’s usually a cover.
If you’re willing to go to a hotel where they’re already doing a pick-up, you may be able to get the free limo solo. Otherwise, you need the solo package, which includes round-trip limo.
If I’m on the rail watching the fabulous stage show and opt to go get a fabulous private nude dance, will I lose my seat at the rail? I won’t be on a package – would a host hold the seat for me?
Tony, you’d usually lose your seat if the club is busy. If you’re tipping the dancers big on stage, getting drinks and lots of private dances, the host may hold the seat for you. Never hurts to ask.
I was wondering if you could confirm the minimums and maximums for the 30 and 60 min private dances, and the 30 and 60 min fantasy suites. I am just a little confused with house price and maximums and the two different rooms and want to know exactly what to budget for.
Jamie, you can see photos of the VIP booths at Palomino vs. one of the private bedrooms here. The bedrooms are literally rooms with furniture. Both the rooms and booths have opaque curtains covering the doorways for excellent privacy.
There is no minimum price for a dance except for the booze charge for the private bedrooms. There is no booze charge in the private VIP booths. The practical reality is that high-mileage private booth dances start at 3 songs for $100, with no additional booze charge. Everything longer or in a private bedroom is negotiated up from there.
The maximum prices the last time I checked were as listed on our VIP price comparisons page except for the private bedrooms. The new maximum for an hour in a private bedroom was officially $2000, but I’d be very surprised if more than a handful of very drunk guests ever paid that rate. I have in my notes that the 30-minute private bedroom rate was either $600 or $800, but it may be $1200 now.
Again, the way to think of these official max prices is as a negotiating aid for the dancers. They can point at the board, quote these very high prices, and some guests will just pay.
But if you have the ability to negotiate at all, I guarantee you can get much better rates. For example, many dancers will start things off by saying the price is $1200 (or whatever), but they can give you a discount so the price is only $800. It’s your job at that point to say something like, “You’re gorgeous, but I paid $450 for an hour last time I was here. Can you meet me half way at $600 for an hour?”
You have more negotiating power earlier in the evening or on week days. If it’s a Saturday night at midnight or 1 am and the club is packed, especially on a holiday or big fight weekend, you have less negotiating power.
Keep in mind that at Sapphire, a full hour in a Skybox is $800. Let that be a guide. At Palomino, the dance is fully nude, so a private bedroom dance may be worth a bit more. But just because the house has posted a max price of $2000 an hour doesn’t mean you should be paying it.
I’d aim for the prices I’ve listed on our VIP price page. I’ve listed those prices at this club because the max price listings are new, I’m not sure how long they’ll last, and that’s about what I’d pay here.
On the other hand, there truly are dancers here that are Victoria’s Secret quality, and on a busy Saturday night they may ask for and get $2000 for an hour in a private bedroom. It’s up to you to decide.
Going to be going to Palomino Wednesday and I have a girl I met last time stating the house price is $800 (admitting to charging more at $1k) plus s bottle. Have prices changed since I was there? Or could you confirm the house prices so I know where I stand.
Jamie, the house maximum prices are posted on a board by the stage. You’ll find many dancers automatically ask for the maximum price, but you can get dances for less by starting negotiations at a lower amount. Just say, “Last time I paid… Will the price be the same as that?”
First of all, Arnold, I appreciate this site. My husband and I were headed to LV for vacation and I wanted to check out a club with him. I used this site for all of my research. Second, I wanted to give my out of towner experience for others. For my previous experiences, we come from a place that has no bar, but free beer, the ladies come to the edge of the stage and put on a show for each customer and move to the next after slipping a dollar in their garter/ankle cuff, and generally have a very friendly stage presence.
After researching here, we decided on palomino based on full nude and the $250/30min Private. Our pick up service was great. I can’t remember the name of the guy that picked us up, but he was awesome and so much fun. He spelled out all the offerings for us before we arrived. We weren’t going to get a package but decided on the two of a kind. Upon entering.
We were seated at a table that was as close to the rail as possible, which I liked initially. The dancers never came around the stage to perform individually and tips were only thrown on the stage. No individual attention from the stage. My usual club, all the ladies say hello to you and usually make some kind of ‘I’m so glad you came’ or ‘oooh how exciting, I love when a woman brings her man here’ kind of comment.
As I said, we were sitting at a VIP table but at the back/entrance of the stage. The first girl that approached us was very sweet and fun, and toured us through the VIP theme room area. $1100/hr. Nope. We weren’t that lucky in Vegas. Discount to $800/hr I believe. Weren’t too thrilled when she poured a drink into a very tall glass, effectively draining a quarter our little half bottle. Considering the prices, I decided I liked home where the dancers don’t drink a little better.
We returned to our table and we both had a couple people in mind we would like to see based on this site and the palominos own site, but they weren’t dancing that night. It was slow and a Wednesday night, around 11pm. We stayed until 1am, were approached by 3 different people, all friendly. We were getting ready to leave (as in I was picking up my purse and stuff, already texted the driver we were ready to go back) when the most beautiful blonde goddess walked over and sat in my lap. Not my husbands. Ok. This is better. We chatted a few and decided to go with the half hour for $250 as posted.
Cannot say anything bad about Cole. She was amazing. I consider the dance high mileage for both of us, but this was our first VIP service. More focus on me than my husband, but he was included. We both left pretty happy with our experience. So we get home and I tell my husband I’d like to leave a review and sadly, neither of us could remember her name. I FB the club and by the end of the night had tracked down for us who our dancer was. When I told them why I wanted to know, they told me your site ‘is very trusted’.
I will say between home and LV, I’ve noticed a new trend, where dancers pair up and walk around, talking to each other and not the customers. I personally don’t like it, because you are there to work to get me to pay you to dance. I’m not there to work to score a dance from you. I’m paying you. I shouldn’t have to chase you down or feel rude for interrupting your conversation.
If there weren’t so many clubs in Vegas, we would definitely come back here. This was the only one we went to, despite reminding my husband there was one with an open bar for a few hours. I’d like to see what others are like, but I can say the Palomino definitely made us both VERY happy, and a very special thanks to Cole. Amazing. Loved her. My husband keeps raving how soft her skin was. I loved watching his face, and he definitely loved what he saw.
My husband wanted me to point out he liked that we were not approached until we were seated and had drinks on our table. He said it was nice to not be bombarded the minute we walked in the door. He also asked that I point out that the girls did say hello to us as they entered or exited the stage, and we always threw a couple bucks on the stage for them.
Wifey, thanks to you and your husband for the review. It’s unusual not to get personal attention from the stage. I wonder if it was because of your location near the back of the stage, or whether the dancers were extra cautious because you were a couple.
Your experience with the first dancer is a perfect example of something I talk about here again and again. The first dancer to approach at any Las Vegas strip club will usually be the most aggressive one in the club. She’ll typically quote ridiculous prices and she’ll often hustle drinks. But once you get rid of her, you can often find someone great like Cole, the dancer you had so much fun with.
I have read online that this Club has gone downhill a ton in the past year. It is under new ownership and the quality of girls isn’t what it used to be. Most of the quality high class girls have moved on to different Clubs. Do you find this to be true?
K…I didn’t find that true on my visit last month.
K: I know the owner of Palomino very well. He’s had it for more than 10 years and I’d be amazed if he ever sells it. In the past year, he’s upgraded it substantially upstairs and down. It’s small but absolutely one of the top clubs in Vegas and the dancer quality is extremely high-end. Somebody’s pulling your leg.
I have written to you before and you have given me very great advice. I will be in Vegas during the 4th of July holiday week. I’m thinking of going to the Palomino on Wed the 4th. Don’t know if it will be busy on that night,being it is a holiday night to warrant buying a package. Again I will be going solo. Any sound advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance
Joe, I’d say you’ll be okay without a package going solo on a Wed., even July 4th, although a crowd will likely arrive after the fireworks on the Strip.
You could get one of the solo guy packages–that would get you free round-trip transportation in the club limo. Or, if you drive yourself, you could get a cheaper package at the door that will guarantee a reserved table for the night. But as a solo guy, you will likely be able to find a seat somewhere, so you might want to just pay the cover if you drive yourself.
Stopped in with my wife on Tuesday at 7:00 after Saphire. Five guys and 7 or 8 dancers. About 10 guys and 12 dancers at 8:00. None of them had adequate boobies for my taste so we didn’t spend any money on laps or booths. I think we’ll have to show up later, pay the cover charge (ouch) in order to see bigger boobs and do the $100 booth. I was thinking of Deja Vu for a Tuesday but we don’t drink enough.
Hi Arnold just wanted to drop a line for you.
I went to Palomino’s for the first time last month on my last visit to Vegas. It was a little different, a little smaller than I thought but otherwise it was great. The customer service was pretty good. There was almost a mix up at the beginning thinking I was at a different hotel but that was straightened out quickly. The driver was great and said since i was getting there a little early, it was going to be before 9pm,maybe i could upgrade to a half bottle service. So I said sure and he set me up when we got to the club. Everyone at the club was great, the host showed me around a little bit where everything was since I had never been there before and my seat was next to the rail in the corner where the girls come out for their stage shows. It was a fantastic seat.
I didn’t feel pressured for a dance, except once but handled that. The dancers that came over sat down and just talked for a bit. Again never felt pressured and some said they felt at ease with me for some reason. They also liked the Ginger Ale I had on the table as one of my mixers so went through the Ginger Ale quickly.
But again the service was pretty good, a couple of the hosts joked with me during the evening, Once dancer even told a host that I was one of the good guys. I kind of looked back and forth and got patted on the back, so assumed it was a good thing she said.
Funny part is when i tipped one of the hosts he seemed surprised by it. Only down part was not getting the ride back to my hotel but it wasn’t that far away so easy cab ride.
But the one thing that kind of made me notice is by the stage they have prices on a board about how much a lap dance is, VIP dance etc….and the dances I did have, the dancers kept pretty strict to those prices which surprised me a little. So I don’t if it was because of the night I went, which could have, or something else but the dancers kept to those prices for the dances. Of course didn’t include alcohol or any tipping.
It was also different, for me, seeing the dancers take off everything before a VIP dance. Just not used to that one.
Going back to Vegas again next month and may try out Palomino again but just wanted to drop a line. I really have no idea where the bad reviews are coming from and you were correct Arnold about probably something else being behind those reviews.
Thanks for the report, Ryan. One thing people should know is that those posted prices are the club’s maximum prices. You can negotiate for a lower price but dancers are not allowed to charge more. Also, always let your host know the general time you want to leave so he can set up your return ride for you.
That ginger ale is a great tip. People often ask me what dancers like to drink.
Hey Arnold, went last year and had a blast, met this cutie, Jasmine, blonde, early 20s, any idea if she still works there?
Hey Mike, I just had a private dance with Jasmine two weeks ago, so I believe yes.
Perfect thanks, appreciate the response.
My experience with Palomino on Friday night (April 20, 2018):
A few days before our arrival in Las Vegas, I called Palomino around 5:45pm to see if I could customize the “Two of a Kind” package. There was going to be three in our group, and the service rep said I could purchase the “Two of a Kind” online to get the current 10% discount for prepayment and then pay the $30 cover charge which would include 2 drink tickets for our third person. I asked about substituting the pitcher of beer for bottles of water and she said it should be possible but she would need to check. She seemed like she was in a hurry to get me off the phone. After verifying the information that she has relayed me, I said thank you and was about to ask another question, when she hung up on me. I thought that was a little rude and not indicative to the service that the club is supposed to have based on the reviews. So I feel like they didn’t take the time to figure out my groups needs, but perhaps our group was too small to matter?
I purchased the package online and listed the liquor preference and the wish to substitute to the complimentary pitcher of beer with bottles of water. Since out of the three of us (and two of us weren’t heavy drinkers).
On Friday afternoon, I received a text from Joey the driver for that night detailing where to wait and confirming our pick up time. Joey texted us 15 mins before he arrived and told us to start heading to the pickup spot. He was courteous and asked what we wanted for our mixers. I again mentioned substituting the pitcher of beer for waters and he said he’ll have to see.
When we arrived, we were escorted to the front of the line where we paid for the third person and then was shown to our reserved table for the night (this was right behind the chairs next to the rail so the view was spectacular. The waitress showed us the 375 mL (1/2 bottle) of Jack Daniels and proceeded to pour my two friends a drink. I asked her about the substitution of the pitcher of beer for water, and she said she’ll have to ask her manager. She came back and said because the beer was complimentary she could only give me 3 bottles of water… This seems a little stingy? A pitcher of beer is 5 bottles of beer. So I expected 5 bottles of water.
I got a total of four – 15 minute VIP dances. With the following four girls: Leilani, Lily, Amy and Lexus. The mileage varied with each girl, but they were all pretty high mileage in my opinion. I had found Lily via Palomino’s Instagram page and had to go ask a host to go find her for me; and she was everything I imagined. So definitely ask for Lily if you get a chance. Lexus was my last dance and she was by far the best for the night. I wished that Jasmine was still there, she set the bar super high. I think if you go back to last year’s comments, someone else also mentions Jasmine by name, but she doesn’t work there anymore 🙁
The dancers and the stage show was everything I remembered about Palomino and I cannot wait to come back next year!
Thanks, B-Wizzle. I’ll forward this to the manager at the club so he can think about the issue with your custom package and set some policies.
B-Wizzle, management sent thanks for the comment. They’ll be talking to staff. You should have received equivalent bottles of water for the beer and the phone girl should have gotten your number for a call-back if she had to get off the phone.
Hi Arnold. Thanks for following up with the manager and forwarding the response to them. You are awesome and this site is the best!
B-Wizzle, thanks for the feedback and also the club was appreciative for the feedback.
Damn when does Valentina dance?
JR, every Friday and Saturday night.
Darn I’m there tomorrow
Does valentina ever dance during the week or do private shows? Thank you
JR, yes, she dances during the week but not necessarily always the same days. Yes, she does private shows and she’s terrific.
How do we get in contact with Valentina for a private show? Thank you
Valentina, just go to the club on a weekend night near peak hours and Valentina will likely be there. If you don’t see her in the club, let a host know that you’d like a private show with her and he’ll make the introductions.
I wanted to double check with you about Palomino providing custom VIP packages.
MB, they’ve always offered custom packages in the past and I haven’t heard of any change. There’s a contact form at the club website you can use or just give them a call.
I can double check over the weekend and make sure the policy hasn’t changed.
Arnold thanks for the information.
Just booked the flying solo package. If you pay online its only $54 not $60.
Thanks, Justin. I’ll update.
This question may be outside your bailiwick, or slightly off topic, but I figured it couldn’t hurt to ask. I’m planning a trip to Palomino later this spring. I like to take my time there and enjoy the stage show in between VIP dances. One difficulty with this is that the club gets busy and then the tables fill up and it becomes much harder to enjoy the stage in between lap dances and/or VIP trips.
There are packages that include a reserved seat like the “Pre Game” if I arrive early enough (though it’s unclear if the reserved seat continues past 7pm) and “Two of a Kind”. The prices for those aren’t outrageous, especially if I can negotiate the bottle purchase to overlap that for a VIP room.
My question is what liquor I should get. I don’t like beer at all, and don’t drink enough to know what might be tolerable. What mixes well with something to end up reasonably innocuous? What might be good to share with dancers? Any suggestions for a drink plan for someone that doesn’t like most alcohol and doesn’t like getting drunk/buzzed? I usually just order sodas or water, but I’d really like to have a secure seat this trip.
Brian, if you get a package that includes a reserved seat, like the Pre Game, it’s your seat for the night. Just be sure to let your waitress or host know that you’ll be returning if you head off to the VIP for an hour.
If you’re going on a Sunday through Thursday night, and you get to the club by around 10 pm, you can usually get a VIP package at the door (that includes a reserved table for the night) for less than you’d pay for any of the packages on the club website. For example, a typical package at the door might be $60-$70 and include a half bottle with a reserved table for the night.
On a Friday or Saturday night, you likely need one of the website packages you’re talking about to have a reserved table for the night.
Another thing to consider is that many of the dancers at Palomino are under 21 and can’t drink alcohol in the club.
For dancers who do drink, vodka tends to mix well with most things. Also, most dancers seem to like champagne.
You might want to work out a custom package that includes extra mixers and soft drinks, some nice bottled water, maybe some Red Bull for you and all the younger dancers, and a bottle or two half bottles of champagne and/or vodka for the dancers who drink. If you’re getting a private bedroom dance with a booze requirement, ask for the custom package to include that so you can have that booze on your table as well. You can be the guy at the VIP table fully stocked with everything every dancer likes to drink. You will become the host of your own private party at your table.
If you look at the Club Lacy’s bottle prices here, they are the same as Palomino prices and you’ll have a good idea of what you may be able to substitute for what. The list is a year old, but prices will still be close.
Don’t hesitate to call for a custom package (or use the form on the club website) and tell them exactly what you told me. This is a club with excellent customer service and they’ll work with you to make you happy.
Excellent web site – thank you! My GF and I are planning to visit the Palomino in about a month. We go to strip clubs on occasion, but are excited to try a place that is full nude and that serves alcohol. My questions are: would it be too much if GF dressed nicely but went without bra and/or undies? We want to be respectful/tasteful but also want to allow, with the least obstruction as it were, for as much mileage as possible for GF.
Unfortunately the only night we can go is a Friday. Can we expect that dancers will be charging much more for themed suites? And do dancers also increase fees for the smaller private rooms?
MJR, your girlfriend’s choice of undergarments is up to her. I will say that if your girlfriend is wearing a skirt with no panties, it might result in less contact rather than more. A dancer will likely go there if she can do it through some fabric.
There won’t be an increase in the fees for private-booth dances. The price for the private bedrooms might go as high as $400 for half an hour, $800ish for a full hour with some dancers at peak hours. Other dancers will likely be less. But Friday’s a great night to go–don’t hesitate. The show will be great, the dancers will be great, the club will be full and it’s a great party.
Thank you for the quick reply – and point well taken. We’re looking forward to our visit!
MJR, I think you’ll have a great time.
Within the packages there are different amounts of drinks, do you happen to know the volume?
How many cups/mL is the 1/2 bottle vs the full bottle? Or does that depend on the liquor?
How many pints is in one pitcher of beer at Palomino?
Bruce, a bottle is 750 ml, or a little over 3 cups. A 1/2 bottle is 375 ml, or a little over a cup and a half. There are 60 ounces in a pitcher of beer (or 5 12-ounce cans/bottles).
After getting a lot of advice from your site, I went to Palomino about two weeks ago with my wife. We had a great time in a themed bedroom with an amazing girl. Way beyond any mileage I thought was even allowed, it was awesome! But, I have to let you know that the price was much higher than what you have listed here. You have the price as “Private theme room nude dances: 35 min./$250 + $100 bottle”
We were charged $400 and a $150 bottle for 30 minutes. This was not the price the dancer told me, this was straight from the bouncer upstairs. It’s possible they charged extra for a couple, but you had mentioned to me that they do not charge extra for couples. Maybe they just raised their prices? I don’t know. The limo driver told us that pretty much every strip club in Vegas is constantly changing prices. I’m wondering if they just charge what they feel like based on the night. It was a Wednesday night at 4:30 am. Maybe they had a slow night and just tried to get what they could from us?
Thanks for the report, Jason. It’s true that clubs and especially dancers can change prices, but usually it would be on an exceptionally busy night. I’ll check and see if they’ve permanently raised the official club price for bedroom dances.
Arnold did you verify the prices? Has it increased or stay the same?
B-Wizzle, I’ll get an answer for you when I go in this weekend.
B-Wizzle and Jason, I got some dances at Palomino Club last night (what a job!) and verified the prices. There is no increase in the official club price. The only thing that’s changed is that the club has set an official maximum price in addition to a minimum price.
Dancers in the Vegas strip clubs are independent contractors, so they can set their own prices within club policy. The club’s official prices are posted on a sign at the entrance to the first floor VIP. The club minimum for the private bedrooms hasn’t changed–it’s still $250 plus 1/2 bottle ($100) for 30 minutes and $450 plus a $150 bottle for 60 minutes. But dancers were always free to charge more.
What’s happened is that the club felt some dancers were charging too much more. So now the club has posted a max price as well. The maximum price is $400 plus 1/2 bottle for 30 minutes in a private bedroom or $2000 plus a $150 bottle for 60 minutes in a private bedroom.
Since you can always extend a dance once you’re in the private bedroom, obviously it would make sense to get a 30-minute private dance and then just get another 30-minute private dance when the first 30 minutes are up.
The private booth dance prices haven’t changed either.
When Jason asked the VIP host what the dance prices were, he quoted the max price rather than the minimum price. Since he gets tipped by the dancers, he makes more if they make more.
Be sure to check out our post on how to negotiate in a Vegas strip club. Know the minimum price and when a dancer asks if you’d like a dance, ask if a dance is still that price (or a little below that price, to give you some negotiating room). This is a case where you want to be the first to name a price to anchor the negotiations lower rather than higher.
And now you know that there’s a max price beyond which the dancer cannot go.
Hello! My husband and I are visiting Vegas for the first time in April and would like to go to a strip club. Do you think if we went earlier in the day the music wouldn’t be so loud? Or can you suggest a strip club that has more of a lounge feel rather than one of a dance party? We’re getting old and don’t like super loud music. We’d like to be able to talk. Your site is really helpful, thank you!
Kate, I took my wife recently to Palomino at about 5 pm and the music was definitely not too loud to talk. We were conversing comfortably with each other and the dancers. As it gets later, especially after 9ish pm, the crowd gets big, it gets noisy, and they crank the sound up for the crowd. I’ve noticed the same thing at other clubs. If you let me know the day of the week you plan to go to the club, I can give you more tips on the best time to go.
Is it still free before 8:00 PM if you arrive on your own (non-local)?
Mansory, yes. As long as you arrive before 8 pm and you arrive by your own transport or the club limo, admission is free.
I want to give a quick recap of an amazing time I had at Palomino last Tues, the 13th. First, Matt, the driver that picked me up, was stellar! He was very responsive via text & I arranged to be picked up earlier than first planned. Since I got the earlier pick up I wanted to change my package from flying solo to pregame (since it was now before 8). He took care of it, messaged the club and they had all the changes waiting for me when I got there.
I couldnt have asked for a better time hanging out with Madison all evening who also gave the best milage dances in the theme rooms you could ask for. She was incredible! Having the reserved table was well worth it, and even though Im not a big drinker, the extra bottle with the pregame is great to share rounds with the girls. The only thing I would do different next time is to try to speak with management before arriving to ask about bottle deals in the theme room. Since I had a package already with 2 bottles, the 3 more bottles total for theme room visits was way too much. I asked about a deal on the bottle charge for my 3rd 30 minute theme room visit but was told no. That bottle ended up never being touched & I just left it behind because I wouldnt have drank it anyway. But even with that, it was a greart time.
And thank you, Arnold, because of this great site I saw about the change in Little Darlings touching policy and decided to just switch to Palomino last minute. I am sure glad I did and have the awesome info on your site to thank for it!
Norman, thanks for the review.
You raise a great point, if people know they’re going to be getting theme room dances, you might want to see if you can work out a custom package that includes one or more.
Arnold, thanks for this amazing site. Just a stupid question – if I do the Theme Room packages (that include a bottle of liquor) – where do you put the liquor? Does it come to your table? or do you have to finish it in the room before going back to your table?
John, you’ll get full bottle service in the theme room, with glasses for you and the girl. There are tables in the theme room.
When you leave the theme room, you can take the bottle with you to your table in the club’s main room and, at Palomino, you can even take it home with you if you don’t finish it in the club. (I’m not sure that you can take it home from every Vegas strip club–it depends on the exact location of the club.)
If I get a dance from dancer that is under 21 in the themed room, would the bottle service only be non-alcoholic champagne or something similar?
Mikey, it would be up to you. You can still have the booze or you can request something she can drink.
My buddies and I are planning to go to Palomino in May based on your reviews and we are excited! I was looking through the rest of your website and found a commenter mentioning Dr. Strip Club. What he says about Palomino is a little concerning…Do you agree with his sentiments?
“Palomino has steadily gone down hill in the last 12 months. I’ve recently spoken to four groups of tourists who were refused the promised ride back to the strip even though the club’s van was available and the driver was sitting in the lobby. And since Palomino is way off the strip the cab ride back costs $30-$40. I CAN NO LONGER RECOMMEND PALOMINO UNTIL THINGS IMPROVE.”
When was the last time you were there? And do you think it has gone down hill? What about the new management?
I plan on going to Palomino with a bunch of buddies in May based on your reviews. We are excited, but then I was reading through some comments from this site and a user mentioned Dr. Strip Club. His site seems less put together, but I am wondering what the validity of what he is saying in terms of Palomino going down hill. When was the last time you were there, and has the quality gone down? Do you see the difference since the new owner took over?
I read through the older reviews of Palomino and saw a review by “Tommy” from October, 2016 that caught my eye.
He says. “The dancer that we had in our previous trip blew our mind. She was very open to couples and made us feel just like our bedroom. First we wanted to try the 15 mins but after just 5 mins we changed to 30 mins. She got me GOING DOWN ON MY WIFE, TAKE OFF MY SHIRT AND PULL DOWN MY WIFE’S TOP AND ALL.”
Wow! Is that a normal thing that can happen, or is this some extremely rare case? I would think that the guy getting his shirt off and oral sex with his wife would be against all kinds of rules. I plan on going with my wife to Palomino next week and getting one of the themed bedrooms, and it would be a dream come true if something like that were allowed.
I kind of had the idea of paying for 30 minutes and at the end of the 30 minutes, let the dancer know that she MIGHT be able to convince us to go for a full hour and she what she says. Not sure how a dancer would handle that situation.
Jason, it would be extremely unusual for a wife to disrobe that much. I wouldn’t expect that. But a guy going down on his wife or girlfriend through her clothes wouldn’t be unusual. Shirts open wouldn’t be unusual. And it wouldn’t be unusual to have a terrific time in a private bedroom dance at Palomino. You’re in a full-sized bed with a naked girl. Hard for that to go wrong.
Starting with 30 minutes and extending to an hour is a good way to do it.
MB, reserved seating means you have a table for the night. If you go to the VIP, you don’t lose your table. That’s nice on weekends because Palomino gets to standing room only.
Preferred and premier seating are reserved tables in the best locations (closest to the stage). Premier is the better of the two (closest to the stage, first crack at the best dancers).
Would it be a waste of money to buy a package for a couple on a Wednesday night in March?
Jason, no, not a waste of money. A package would get you a reserved table for the night close to the stage plus a discount on booze and the royalty treatment. It’s a nice way to do a date.
Thanks for always answering quickly. This site has been more useful for my upcoming trip than any other site on the internet!
I was just wondering if any of these clubs would ever give you any kind of special treatment if you told them it was a special event, like an Anniversary. I’m sure if I asked, they would say they could help me out, but would they really do anything out of the ordinary, or just bs me into thinking I got a special deal. Do clubs do this kind of thing?
Jason, it would usually mean they would make a special effort for you. For example, you’d likely get a better table, maybe a fancier limo. At a club like Palomino, the girls would pay special attention to you. You might even get a booze upgrade or a free shot.
Arnold what’s the different with preferred seating, reserved seating and premier seating?
How many dancers are at Palomina on weekday as compared to a Friday night? I am tempted to add Palomina to my clubs to visit in Vegas in early May. I’ve noticed based on club photos many dancers have a lot of tattoos. Tattoos aren’t really my thing which may sound weird. Is there still a good selection of dancers without tattoos? Thanks.
MB, probably 60-80 dancers on a weekday, 130+ on a Friday night. But there are no 2nd tier dancers at this club. They’re all beautiful, all Friday night quality.
Maybe half to 60% of the dancers you’ll see have no or very minimal tattoos. For some reason, dancers with tattoos tend to be more likely to be willing to pose for pictures that will be on a website.
This is a great club any night of the week. I love this club.
Thanks for the prompt reply Arnold!
Two additional questions:
– what’s the best time to arrive at Palomino (assuming a pre bought package)
– do the price for the packages already include the cover for everyone to get in?
bwizzle, yes, the package includes the cover for everyone to get in.
When you have a package that includes a reserved VIP table, you can pick whatever time you want. I’d probably arrive around 11 pm to have the club at its absolute peak for your entire visit, but you can go as early as 10 pm or even earlier, and you can arrive as late as 1 am.
Hi Arnold, this site is best place to find reviews and up-to-date information about the events happening at Las Vegas strip clubs. I only wish I had found it before my bachelor party (which was a few years ago). Keep up the good work!!
Because of this site and your reviews, my friend and I have been going to Palomino annually (for a guy’s trip) for the past three years. This time (mid April) we have a few more people joining us and I am looking at getting a package. Specifically I am looking at the either the ‘4 of a Kind’ OR ‘Best of both Worlds’. My questions for you are:
– whether it is possible to negotiate substitution for the pitchers of beer since we are not really into beer.
– what would the expected substitution be? should I start the negotiation with what I want to see what I can get instead of them telling me what they are willing to offer? for example instead of 4 pitchers of beer it would be substituted with one full bottle of Jack Daniels
– do you know what the difference between PREFERRED seating and PREMIER seating is?
Thanks in advance!
bwizzle, sounds like it’s going to be a fun party. Yes, you can definitely negotiate substitutions in packages or any kind of custom package. I’d go ahead and make your offer of substituting the Jack Daniels for the beer. You’re bringing a big group. You have bargaining power. They want to please their customers and if they can’t do exactly what you ask, you’ll be able to come up with something mutually agreeable.
The difference between preferred and premiere is how close your table is to the stage. Premiere gets a better view and the best dancers tend to approach the premiere tables first. But preferred is still excellent seating. If you’re sitting there with a party of guys and a bottle on the table, the best dancers are going to find you, no question about it.
Have a great time, bwizzle.
Me and my wife are coming to Vegas from England in June. We did a lot of research on the web for the best strip clubs for couples, with no doubt yours was the most detailed one we come across. At the moment out choice is Palomino club with the 2 of the kind package. But our only concern is we also found a website called the Dr Strip club which is saying all bad reviews about the Palomino club, one is about the Limo services waiting a long time to be
dropped off back at the hotel etc. The question is do you think we made the right decision, my wife would like high mileage contact if possible.
Tony, Dr Strip Club probably doesn’t get a kickback from Palomino. (I don’t either. But I love the club and so does my wife.) They have multiple limos running constantly back and forth to the Strip and downtown. It’s not impossible that you might have a wait if you want to suddenly leave at some time when all of the limos have just left for a bunch of groups on the south Strip. But if you ask a host to let you know when a limo is leaving when it starts getting to be that time, he’ll come and get you and you won’t have a wait. Just talk to them about the best way to handle it when you arrive. And remember the last limos to the Strip leave at about 3 am (confirm that when you arrive).
The VIP couple’s dances in the private booths or bedrooms starting at 3 songs for $100 are usually terrific, high-mileage dances. Look for dancers who make contact with you when they approach. An 18-year-old who stands three feet away and asks if you’d like a dance will likely not give a high-contact dance. But a dancer who sits with you or makes physical contact with you, even a light caress, will likely give a high-contact dance.
I think you’ll have a terrific time. I’ve gotten nothing but good feedback from couples who’ve gone to Palomino.
Thank you for your advice, we will definitely be visiting the Palomino.
Tony, I think you’ll have a great time.
Hey Arnold. I’m planning on going there this Thursday night with my wife around 11-12 p.m. Do you know if it is busy at Palomino around that time on Thursday?
Also I noticed a few people post above regarding VIP rooms being quoted at $350+$150 bottle charge…I thought VIP rooms were $250 for 1/2 hour with no alcohol charge and that the private themed rooms were $250 + $100 alcohol charge.
Lastly, my wife will partake in a private lap dance with me…do you know if the club charges a premium for couples or is it the flat $250 rate? Granted I guess there will be upsell by the individual dancers but I guess I can hash that out before going into the room.
I just want to know i’m coming in prepared.
John, there will be a good crowd at Palomino on Thursday after 11 pm but you’ll be able to get seats. If it’s going to get packed, it will be after midnight (1-2 am).
You are correct, the standard price of a 30-minute private VIP dance is $250 with no booze charge in the club’s private booths with a curtained door. In the private theme rooms (like the bedroom), 30 minutes is $350 and that includes a $100 bottle. But the dancers at the club are considered private contractors, so you may run into some dancers who charge more. The bottle fee shouldn’t go up though.
Most dancers do not charge extra for couples. My wife and I have never been asked to pay more. But we have people in the comments who say they’ve been asked to pay 50% more and I assume they’re telling the truth.
A lot of the time when you run into dancers who are asking more, it’s Friday or Saturday night when the club is packed. It’s less likely on a Thursday night.
When a dancer you like asks if you’d like a couple’s dance, and you want to say yes, you might try saying, “It’s something we’d like to try. That would be $250/$350, right?” If she says a higher price, you can offer something in between.
You could even try, “At home, that would be $200 for 30 minutes. Are you in that ballpark?”
The club is full of very beautiful, charming dancers, and you and your wife will probably enjoy the stage show while you scout girls, so don’t feel like you have to grab the first girl who asks if she quotes some out-of-line price. There will be more beautiful girls arriving all night.
I believe you’ll both enjoy the club, John. Let me know if you have more questions, and have a great time.
One thing I forgot to mention. As I was sitting at the rail, a very attractive girl sat down and threw her legs over mine and started talking. I don’t remember her name, but I think she was from Columbia. As we were talking I asked her if all the girls danced on stage. She said she doesn’t dance on stage and I asked her why. She said, “look at me. I’m too hot to dance for $5.00 on stage”. I promptly told her I just had a dance and was good for now. With that attitude I think she would be all about trying to get extra money out of you and would be a lousy lap dance experience. Beware.
I went to Palomino for the first time Saturday 1/20/18. I arrived at 7:45 by my own car(rental) and parked in the lot. No charge. Valet was not open yet. I walked in and they asked how I arrived. Said my own car and there was no charge to get in. She did say there was a 2 drink minimum and they would take care of that when I was inside. I happened to walk in behind a group of 6, so when I walked in there was no one to “show” me to a seat. No problem. I sat at a table by the bar as a lot of the tables in the main seating area had reserved signs on them. It only took a few minutes before an attractive, but a few years older than most came over and sat down. We talked for awhile as I told her this was my first time there and she explained how things worked, like the difference between the topless lap dance and the fully nude private dances. Also that the prices were posted on the wall for all to see. She eventually asked if I wanted a dance and I opted for the 3 for $100.00. It was a great start to the night. When I was done I sat at the rail and watched a number of the dancers with a pocketful of singles. Some of these girls are exceptional on stage with what they do with the pole. The athleticism is unbelievable. There were a few of which I would like to have gotten dances from, but by the time they made there way back out to the floor they had already been grabbed by someone. Then Marianne came on stage. Tall, long legs that went to heaven, nice, real boobs and dark hair. This girl was dripping with sexiness and sensuality. When she was done I did get a 3 song dance from her. It turns out, that was her first night at Palomino also. She will only be there until April before she goes back to London. I think I will be visiting Palomino again when I go back in February. Great first time experience.
I just went to Palomino last Friday night and it was quite the experience. All I did was call the club and told them I was interested in the 2 of a Kind package for me and my friend, they asked what time when we wanted picked up, and that was it. I didn’t have to provide a credit card over the phone, and we just paid when we got there. The driver took care of all details (e.g. type of bottle) en route. Thanks to the high amount of hustle I didn’t get to enjoy the stage show that much, but the lap dance mileage was great. I did 2 sets in the nude lap dance curtained booths – 15 min for $150, but the girl told me it was actually 5 songs afterwards, and 20 min for $200, but that wound up being shorter, I’m guessing it was more like 6 songs. The booths were the most uncomfortable seats I’ve ever had a lap dance in, but still worth it. The girls were also not shy about pushing for the VIP rooms and what they would offer inside. I was quoted $350 + $150 for alcohol for a 30 min room, but was promised closer to 40 – 45 mins by multiple girls. I didn’t partake but wanted to pass along the news. Hopefully I’ll get back here someday.
Jim, I’ve always found the booths comfortable. Glad you got good mileage.
Jim I know what booths you’re talking about. They are quite uncomfortable. Arnold, Palomino added new booths that are upstairs and to the right. They wouldn’t be too bad if the seats were extended about 8″ or so.
What you bigger guys might want to do is go for the private bedroom dances. Most nights, the club will allow a 15-minute dance there. There’s a booze requirement, but it’s not bad if you drink, and you get your choice of a full-sized bed or deep chairs and sofas big enough to lie down on.
Nothing like stretching out on a full-sized bed with a beautiful naked girl.
Arnold, thanks for your previous reply. Is it possible to negotiate with someone @ Palomino to combine a 2of a Kind package together with private VIP’s for a couple of 30min dances? I’d prefer not to have to buy more than 1 bottle and save a few $$$. Also, where is the best seating suggestions for reserved tables for couples? Finally, will I need to pay up front or when I get to the club?
CoBill, I’m pretty sure you can negotiate the package you want at Palomino. Best thing to do is call up the club and ask to speak to the manager about a custom package. Best nights to call to work out a custom package are Tuesday through Saturday.
He can’t guarantee you the dancers’ prices for the private dances because they’re independent contractors, but he can work with you on the house charge for the bottle–reduce it or waive it.
There’s also a contact form on the website that you could use to get things going, but I’d call for this kind of custom package.
Talk to them well before you go and if you run into any problems, let me know, and I’ll see if I can help. But I don’t think you’ll run into problems.
Usually they let you pay when you get to the club, but if you’re serious about good seating (since it’s a date with your wife, you probably are) they may require a deposit for a Friday or Saturday night. You want to sit near the stage for a good view of the great show and for easy access to the stage if you want to tip a dancer or talk to a dancer about a private dance.
Quick question before I go tomorrow night. The single package requires a credit card or should I say proof you paid for it when you get to the club yet you recommend not carrying a card to the club. What is the best way to handle. Also if I missed it could you point me to the polite way to ask for a specific dancer you saw online you wonder is working that night. Thank you.
Mike, if you’re going to Palomino, it’s safe to carry your card.
To ask for a specific dancer you saw online, talk to one of the hosts. He’ll be able to help you.
Arnold, great site & info. My wife & I are going to celebrate New Years Eve weekend in Vegas & plan on visiting a couples friendly club Sat. night. We’ve been to strip clubs before and she gets really turned on with the whole experience, including lap dances. We’re seeking a classy couples erotic experience with very high mileage. Which club would you suggest, Palomino or Sapphire?
CoBill, they’re both great clubs for couples. If you’re looking primarily for high-mileage $20 lap dances, Sapphire is the way to go. Sapphire is topless, Palomino is nude. Palomino has the best stage show in town and it’s fully nude but Palomino’s $20 lap dances are topless and not as high mileage as Sapphire’s.
If you’re looking for high-mileage private dances, where you’re completely alone with the dancer, Palomino has great mileage starting at 3 songs for $100. Those dances are in the club’s private booths with an opaque curtain that covers the doors and the dancer gets fully nude.
The group VIP at Sapphire starts at $140 (you get two drinks with that). The private Skybox dances are great at Sapphire but start at $800 an hour. For around the same price, you can get a 60-minute couples’ private bedroom dance at Palomino, with the dancer completely nude. This means the two of you stretched out on a full-size bed with a naked dancer.
So think about how important the stage show is to you, and think about whether you’re focused on high-mileage lap dances vs private dances and that should help you decide. Both clubs have an outstanding selection of gorgeous dancers.
Hi Arnold, sorry if this has been covered before but Palomino is closed on Thanksgiving Day. Just drove by and it’s a ghost town.
blueocean, thanks. We put that at the top of the Thanksgiving weekend post yesterday. But I appreciate it.
Apologies Arnold. As to my trip over Thanksgiving, it’s a mixed review. I got 4 dances total, 3 in the booths and 1 in the VIP. The VIP and a 30 minute booth dance were forgettable, almost anger inducing because both girls tried to cut the sessions short. Fortunately the second time I had my receipt and saw the timestamp and I had at least 14 minutes left. As to the other two dances, one was a 3 song for $100 with some decent mileage, the other was a 15 minute booth dance with Scarlett and she made up for the whole night. I plan on going back and spending more time with her for sure.
Great advice to keep your receipt. I love Scarlett too.
David, you should be okay getting a seat that Friday if you arrive by 9 pm. Call drinks are a deal here (for a Vegas strip club) just like a beer. A Jack n Coke is $12.
Will be in town March 2nd and 3rd. Bachelor party. Planning on coming here. 8 guys. Assuming we have to get a package to sit together? We plan on doing a bit of everything, do you suggest working in reverse. Strip club first, club, gambling, etc….
Jordan, that’s a Friday and Saturday night at a very busy time in Vegas. That means all of the club’s most gorgeous dancers will be there. Yes, I’d get a package at Palomino for a bachelor party of 8 guys at that time.
For me, I’d set up the trip where the strip club was the climax of the trip on Saturday night. Don’t blow all your money gambling!
Be sure to set up your party well in advance and let them know you’re a bachelor party. They’ll take really good care of you.
Great website Arnold, thank you for the info.
I plan on going here Thanksgiving weekend, likely the Friday. I’m undecided on the pre-game package or solo. Do you think seating will be hard to come by around 7:30 – 9 where I’d need reserved seating?
Also do you know the price range for non-well drinks? Things like Jack n Coke? Thank you
What is considered a normal tip while sitting at the rail? If a dancer does 3 songs, should you tip each song? Should rail tips be higher at an all nude club like Palomino? I’d like to sit at the rail and watch 10-15 dancers to decide who I like for private dances. I also don’t want to have to fend off other dancers every two minutes while I’m watching? If it’s 10 pm and very busy, how likely am I to be approached over and over if I’m sitting at the rail? Thanks,
I’m just like you, Jobu. I like to sit on the rail and choose who I like for private dances there.
You won’t be approached on the rail even if it’s 10 pm and busy unless a dancer thinks you’ve been looking at her like you’re inviting her over. If you’re tipping, you will usually be approached by the dancer on stage for special attention, and she may ask you from the stage if you’d like a private dance after. But she’s in the middle of her show, so if you give her a quick, polite no, she won’t ask again.
You should definitely tip at least $1 per song if you’re sitting on the rail. A lot of guys don’t, they wait for the second song when the dancer is already nude because they want extra attention then. But I think they’re crazy. If you tip in the first song, you get a lot more extra attention because few others are tipping.
If you like a dancer and you can afford it, by all means tip more, especially at a club like Palomino where the dancers are truly putting on a show. But bring a lot of ones so you can do that extra tipping a dollar at a time. If you put out a five or twenty, the dancer will likely assume it’s a dollar. A lot of ones make more of an impression.
Not going til the first week of Dec. Going to try the flying solo package and see what happens. Going during the week. Any suggestions on time of day that time of year? Thanks.
Mike, club will be getting busy around 9 pm, coming into full swing around 10 pm, and just keep getting more crowded until 1 or 2 am. The show will be great from the time the club opens and so will the dancers.
I think you’ll have a great time.
Hi Arnold, just wanted to post a follow up.
We did go with a package Saturday night as it was just busy enough warrant one but it wasn’t extremely busy. I suspect a lot of Halloween festivities and parties around town played a big factor. So in the end, we did got more attention than we were hoping for, both a positive and a negative.
One thing I find pretty frustrating though is the inconsistencies of VIP dances even though I appreciate the fact it’s all flexible due to the independent contractor nature of it all. Of the half dozen plus VIP sessions my group had, we encountered stuff like: One girl that did not take off panties but only occasionally slipped to the side, half the girls asked us to tip the hosts in VIP, after giving one girl $100 on the main floor to pay for 3 VIP dances for a friend she still asked for more money from said friend before starting to dance. It’s less of an issue if the dances were amazing, 2 of which fell into that category, but I feel I have to more strictly play 20Q’s with each potential candidate going forward while balancing the fine line of ensuring expectations are aligned while not sounding like a dollar pincher. It’s not the fault of the club but realistically it does factor on how willing we’re wanting to go back. I do give props to the club services though: Transport, waitstaff, hosts, etc
7y13r, thanks for the report. I would just say don’t be afraid to sound like a dollar pincher–the dancers are dollar pinchers, after all. When I get quoted a price, I always just quickly restate the price and expectations no matter what club I’m at. “$100, and that’s for a fully-nude dance,” or whatever. Do you remember the two dancers who gave the amazing dances?
Sorry can’t remember Arnold. The names kind of start blending in as the night wore and the drinks kept flowing.
Thank you Arnold for all the info. Although we’ve been to Vegas over a dozen times, we’ve never gone to a gentleman’s club, thinking the ones in Vegas would be extremely expensive with too much hustle. Because of your guide, we went to the Palomino Thanksgiving weekend last year and while it wasn’t super busy, there was still a lot of talent, and we had a great time.
We’re heading down to Vegas again this pre-Halloween weekend and are going to visit the Palomino again Sat and/or Sun. This time we’re likely going to get a 4 or 5 person package for 3 us. Do you think we’ll be able to wheel and deal a bit on the packages or it going to be too busy this event weekend.
Also, any suggestions on how to tone down the attention in the preferred seating area? I’m pretty low key and I just find it a bit of a chore sometimes constantly telling white lies (“I’m just watching the stage show right now”) to reject the girls I’m not interested in while still trying to be polite about it.
7y13r, Saturday night is going to be very busy. You may be able to wheel and deal a bit if your planned arrival time is early–say 8 pm.
Sunday will be less crowded and you’d have more wheeling and dealing power.
Always worth asking. Palomino is very good at working with people.
Regarding dealing with the attention. One advantage of going on Saturday night is that there will be 500+ customers in the club for 130+ dancers. There’s no way you’ll be approached as often as you were approached on a Thanksgiving weekend when there were fewer customers per dancer. You may even need to ask a host for an introduction when you spot a girl you’d like to spend some time with.
just visited the club on Thursday 10/12/17. Had a great night with one of the dancers. Sadly forgot her name. She was from South Africa, so hoping that will narrow it down. Just looking to pass on appreciation to management so she gets a little recognition. Also be good to know her name to look out for her on the website.
On a side note is it the norm to be allowed to be so hands on? Was struggling to find anything I wasn’t allowed to do and at points was directed by her to be a lot more intimate.
Hands down best dance I’ve had and how hands on I could be is way more than any european strip club.
Carl, I’ll pass on your compliments to Palomino so they can give the good feedback to the dancer and try to get her name for you. Yes, high mileage is the norm at Palomino in private dances.
Perfect thanks. Yeah a name would be great so i can look out for her when I’m back.
Again thanks for the site.
With the 60 minute bed dance it says you get a bottle for 600 total. What kind of bottle?
I am considering the $150 package. if it comes with a booth, is there easy access to the rail by the stage and will my booth be saved?
Thanks a bunch
Tim, the $150 “Pre-Game Package” that’s available until 8 pm comes with two 375 ml bottles and reserved seating. That means you keep your VIP booth for the night until you leave the club. You’d be close to the stage with easy access to the rail.
The 60-minute bedroom dance usually comes with a 375 ml bottle.
If you’re sure you want a 60-minute bedroom dance, you can probably work out a custom package where you either don’t have to buy a third bottle or you get better booze. I’ve got a call in to the manager of the club and will get back to you as soon as he calls (he’s off Sunday & Monday, so likely Tuesday). You can also contact the club directly to work out a custom VIP package that gives you exactly what you want. They work with VIPs.
Thanks for all this great information. I have not found a website this good in years that kept stuff up to date. I often go to the clubs single and this information on packages etc is beneficial. Had been to the Palomino years ago for a bachelor party and had a great time. Will check out the packages you suggest for my trip in November. Thanks again.
Thanks, Mike. I like getting comments like yours. If you haven’t been to Palomino Club in two years, wait till you see the remodel and the awesome selection of dancers.
Went to Palomino with my wife really early, 6:30pm, on Thursday August 31 to see if anything was happening. There were 4 girls who immediately took turns dancing with a couple of songs in between just to fill more time until more people arrived at 7:30. My wife and I took Delighla to the main floor curtained cubicles for 3 songs/$100. Not as great as previous trips. She said my wife couldn’t drop her top as there were cameras but this was never a concern with Cally in the upstairs cubicles. Also shut me down on mouth to nipple after the first attempt even though they stayed within 3 inches of my face.. Maximum mileage otherwise, and extreme closeups of her lower half. Next time we’ll go a little later as I think the upstairs cubicles are a bit more free wheeling after 9pm.
Damn, Cancon, that is freewheeling.
I am going in two weeks and plan to schedule limo service to the palomino club, is there a cutoff time that they won’t pick you up? Also, when you say main room $20 topless dance does that mean wherever you’re sitting that’s where you get your dance or do they have a separate like back couch for that?
Dan, the Palomino limo drivers make their final runs to the Strip around 3 am, so the final pick-up time is around then. Be sure to call in advance to set up your pick-up time and double check that. If they have a group to pick up at 2:45 am, that might be their final run.
The Palomino dancers usually take you to a more private area in the back of the club for the $20 topless lap dances. But when the club gets really packed, they start doing lap dances where you’re sitting.
Have a good time. It’s a great club.
2 of us went Thursday about 6:30 pm and rode the club shuttle. Despite the fact that the club was pretty dead at that time, we were charged $30 each at the door – received the 2 drink tickets each. There were about 5 dancers there and we were the only 2 customers for at least an hour. By 8:30 or so, a good number of dancers had come in and the crowd strarted to pick up. By 9:30 there was a ton of top talent. Ample tables available – one dancer said it was slow but was fine by us. Went for a 15 minute private dance for $150, upgraded to the 30 minutes for $250. Seemed even longer than that which was great for me. Rode the shuttle back to the strip around 1 am.
Jordan, I checked with the Palomino Club manager. The policy is free admission before 8 pm. So you should not have been charged a $30 cover. The manager told me he will look into what happened. I’ll report back here.
Does anyone have any incite in the difference between the $150 private dances and then then fantasy dances behind closed doors?
Chad, the private dances for $100 at Palomino take place in a roomy cubicle or booth with an opaque-curtained doorway. The fantasy bedroom dances are a full room with either a full-sized bed or sofas where you can stretch out and get horizontal with a dancer.
Both offer excellent privacy. The big difference is the positions you can get into with the naked dancer.
You can see photos of a Palomino Club private bedroom and private-dance booth here, as well as more detail about the difference between private-booth shows and private-bedroom shows.
Thanks Arnold. I should note that when I called, I did not specifically ask about cover – assumed at the early time there would be none. As we neared the club, the driver did go through the available packages as you mention (one package offered was better than anything offered on the website), but since we are not big liquor drinkers, opted not to buy. Since one of your notes says sometimes on Thursdays they do charge cover, we did not want to argue at the door. Not a huge deal since I likely would have spent that money on beer anyway. Couple other things to note – we did get ‘vultured’ by two ladies as soon as we stopped at the bar. I am usually good at getting rid of the vultures but it was extremely difficult since my friend and I were the only 2 guys in the club for an hour (and best I could count, only about 5 dancers). I got myself a good liquor drink with one of my drink tickets and a drink for the vulture with the other. She was ok but not really my type, not extremely pushy but continuously ‘there’. I ended up getting one $20 lap dance – something for the effort, I guess. The other thing to note is that when ordering the shuttle, I clicked on the phone number listed above and it went to Andrew’s cell phone. Left a couple messages but no call back (I was told later at the club that he was out of town). I ended up going to the club website and clicking on the phone number there. Lastly, great site! Comprehensive in every way. One (minor) suggestion – due to the ebb and flow of popularity and features of clubs, I would suggest maybe adding a date at the top of each club review, such as ‘date of most recent review/update’.
Jordan, thanks for the comment. You still should not have been charged a cover at that hour–both the owner & manager reaffirmed this week that policy is no cover until 8 pm. I’m waiting for the manager to get back to me.
I’m not surprised at 5-6 dancers when you arrived, that’s what I’ve found, though usually dancers keep steadily arriving so there will be about a dozen by 7-7:30, 15 by 8 pm, and so on. August is one of the two slowest months of the year in Vegas, with December. I suspect that’s why it took until 8:30 for everyone to arrive.
I’ll add the club phone number to the review.
I update every club every week or two, probably should note that somehow.
Hi Great website!
we are planning a trip to palomino for me and 2 other guys.
we see this package on the website but its day time only(4-8), does it mean we just have to arrive by 8 or be on the limo by 8?
also many of the packages have “half” bottles, does it mean its a already opened left over bottle ?
