Hundreds of Stacked Dancers & High Mileage for Lap Dance Aficionados
No matter how many times I’ve gone into Sapphire (club website) in the decade or so since it opened, I’m always amazed at the sheer number of gorgeous babes with big boobs walking the floor in platform heels and skimpy lingerie. If a selection of 300-400 slender, busty, beautiful dancers available for high mileage lap dances is enticing to you, buddy, you’ve come to the right place.
Sapphire markets itself as the “World’s Largest Gentlemen’s Club,” and it may well be. The main showroom is 10,000 square feet, and that doesn’t count the gourmet Mexican restaurant or the smaller showroom where the Monday Night Football and comedy shows are held.
To give the club a more intimate feeling, Sapphire uses a huge floor-to-ceiling curtain to cut the main showroom into more intimate spaces during all but peak hours. This squeezes the dancers working the floor into a tighter space, which increases the agreeable impression of a wealth of available female flesh.
The lighting is mostly Sapphire’s signature wall of small twinkling turquoise lights, which means it is suitably dark for a man to unwind with a beautiful woman in his lap. There are three full bars and three stages, the center stage on a platform about 20 feet up. The guys on the main floor watch the dancers on the two small stages at either side of the center-stage platform.
The stage shows are among the best of the Vegas topless clubs, with erotic pole dancing, acrobatic dancing, and floor work, but the stages are too high for guys who like to sit on the rail and watch the show close up. The stage shows here are more like a decorative bonus amidst the splendor of all the beautiful women around you.
Sapphire is a Tit Man’s Paradise
Sapphire has a preferred type, and if you like big tits, you’ll be a happy man here. Most of the dancers are on the high end of the spectrum for both beauty and body, and even when there’s a big crowd, there are plenty of dancers working the crowd.
The lap dances on the main floor are probably the highest-contact in Vegas, priced at $20 per song like everywhere else. The dancers in this place work the crowd relentlessly when they’re not on stage, but if you turn down a dancer, she’ll move on to the next guy gracefully. If you’re the shy type who doesn’t know how to approach dancers, you don’t have to worry about that here. Just sit anywhere by yourself and you’ll be approached over and over again by knockout babes looking for a comfy lap to dance in.
After a recent visit to the Sapphire comedy hour, I stopped in the club for a while. There were women draped across nearly every available man. I’ve never seen so many men in one room look so happy.
Sapphire VIP Packages
If you’re coming for the evening, check out the VIP packages at Sapphire. There are packages for single guys, groups, guys who prefer a specific bottle, etc.
The packages include free admission ($45 savings), free limo transport, a line pass, host service, a reserved VIP table in the center of the action, and a discount on drinks if you buy online. Even with the basic VIP65 package (suitable for the average guy going solo), you essentially get $69 in alcohol plus the royalty treatment at the most elegant club in town for $65.
The package is worth it for the value of the reserved VIP table alone. At peak hours at Sapphire, this may be the only way you’ll be able to sit down. Here’s how it breaks down:
|VIP65 Drink Card Package||Arrive by Cab|
|Free limo to club||$20+ cab fare to club|
|Free admission to club||$45 admission|
|Includes $50 free drinks plus free shot if you buy online = $69 value in booze||No booze included|
|Limo driver escorts you straight to front of line||Wait in line|
|Reserved VIP table waiting for you in the center of the action with a great view of the club’s three stages||Wait for a seat on the rail to open up|
|Summary: $134+ in value if you buy online plus reserved VIP table and royalty treatment for only $65||Summary: Pay $20+ for cab plus $45 admission = $65+ before you’ve had a single drink, plus no royalty treatment and no reserved VIP table.|
The Sapphire Monday Night Football Party is the Best in Vegas
From September through December, you can start the week at Sapphire’s Monday Night Football party (excellent man chow buffet, three drinks, three giant screens and a roaring crowd for $20), where you can sample the lovely dancers at half-time with their 30-second $1 topless lap dances (in my opinion, the best lap dance experience in Vegas). When the game ends you’ve already had three drinks and you have a better idea of which girl you’d like in your lap for a longer stay.
Sapphire welcomes couples and the percentage of couples in the audience has been increasing, so if you bring your wife or girlfriend on a busy night, she won’t feel alone or awkward.
The VIP Skyboxes
Sapphire also has 10 “skyboxes,” which are essentially private VIP rooms, some with multiple couches that accommodate a dozen people and some designed for 1-on-1 time with a dancer. The skyboxes are 25 feet above the main floor and have full-length one-way windows that overlook the main floor below; they also have their own controls for lighting and music volume and even a flat-screen TV.
Skyboxes are $500/hour for the dancer, with a $300 bar tab. Check the Sapphire website for deals on larger rooms suitable for private group parties (bachelor parties and the like), with prices dependent on the number in the group and the number of dancers.
At $15 for a bottle of beer, Sapphire is in the middle of Vegas clubs for drink prices (a beer at the major clubs ranges from $12 to $18). But at Sapphire, the drink price gets you a superior dancer selection. Again, you can get more for your money by getting one of the drink package deals at Sapphire’s website.
Sapphire Free Limo Transport
You can also get free admission (a $45 savings) by calling for the free club limo. The $15 reservation fee will be waived if you purchase a buy-1-get-1-free drink coupon at the door (a no-brainer). Call 702-869-0003 to reserve your ride.
Sapphire is the only strip club in Vegas that makes its free limos available 24/7. You can also call for free limo transport to the Sapphire Comedy Club (see below) or Pool and Dayclub. If you’re going to take the free club limo to get free admission to the club without a package, I recommend you arrive before 9 pm in order to get a seat.
As a local, I go to this club for their terrific parties, or just to bliss out getting girls in my lap. Plus the Sapphire Pool and Day Club (see below) is my favorite way to while away a summer afternoon, ogling the Sapphire dancers in their teeny bikinis and pasties, and watching the go-go dancers jiggle.
Sapphire Pool & Day Club
Sapphire’s Pool & Day Club is open during warm weather (April through October). It’s not completely topless, as pasties or body paint on nipples are required (due to a dumb Vegas law), but it’s the best pool party in town, with the largest number of gorgeous topless girls. Read my full review: Sapphire’s Pool & Day Club.
Sapphire offers a special arrangement on Sundays for people who are checking out of their hotel room in the morning and would like to spend the day at the pool before catching a flight home Sunday night. Take the free club limo to the pool (call 702.869.0003 to reserve your ride), and the club will store your luggage for free. Then they’ll give you a free ride to the airport when you’re ready to leave to catch your flight.
There is normally a $15 reservation fee for the limo ride, but the club will waive that fee if you purchase a buy-1-get-1-free drink coupon or buy a bottle. They’ll offer you the drink option when it’s time to collect the $15 fee.
The Sapphire Pool & Dayclub offers packages starting at $70 that include free limo transport, a lounge chair for the day, a line pass, and $50 in drinks (purchase at the pool website).
Sapphire Comedy Club
Every Saturday at 8 pm, you can see a comedy show with burlesque dancers in Sapphire’s showroom. The comedians range from open-mic quality to top pros; the pole dancer and burlesque dancer are superb and worth coming to see all by themselves. The strip club audience is here to party and tends to be quick with comebacks if a comic says something lame. See my full review: Sapphire’s Comedy Hour.
For transport to the comedy show in the club limo, call 702.869.0003 (return ride depends on limo availability). There’s a $15 reservation fee for the limo, but the club will waive that fee if you purchase a buy-1-get-1-free drink coupon or buy a bottle. Tickets to the Comedy Club are $20.
