Scores has been hugely expanded
Scores is a national chain of roughly a dozen gentlemen’s clubs that started in NYC in the 1990s. Las Vegas had a Scores strip club until 2008, when the property was purchased by Rick’s Cabaret. With cheap drinks for locals and plenty of pretty dancers, Scores was one of the most popular strip clubs in Vegas at the time it was taken over by Rick’s. Locals bemoaned the change in management, as Rick’s ignited the taxi wars that put half a dozen popular Vegas strip clubs into bankruptcy.
The new Scores is located on Highland Drive, about halfway between Girl Collection and Spearmint Rhino. It’s the same building as the now-defunct Foxy’s, a hole-in-the-wall locals’ titty bar, but completely renovated. It is now a glitzy high-tech club, though much smaller than competitors like Sapphire or Deja Vu.
The club opened its doors last Friday and is selling drinks, though there were no dancers on stage when I was there early on Saturday night. They are now hiring dancers and there may have been dancers later in the evening. They won’t be having their Grand Opening party until April. There are video monitors yet to be installed, and lots of artwork and decorative features yet to be added. But they are opening each night at 8 pm and they have a full bar. No cover charge for locals, so check it out.
If you order a drink, be sure and tell the bartender or waitress you’re a local as your drinks will be half-price ($7.50 for a domestic beer, instead of $15). Again, I can’t comment on dancer quality, ambiance, or much else yet, as the club is still in the hiring process and not much was happening on my Saturday night visit.
Once the property is in full swing, watch for MNF parties, UFC viewing parties, feature dancers, etc. See my full Scores Las Vegas review for info on VIP rooms, dance prices, etc.
Arnold, wife and I wanted to finally give this place a try Friday 12/10, end of NFR. Parking lot is tore up due to the remodel and it is valet only. Met nice valet attended, tipped him $5 and we walked up to front amidst many potholes or even ground. The front host knew we drove ourselves and saw we were locals, but said cover was $50! Rubbed me wrong seeing how supposedly locals are free. Likely due to NFR or door man trying to make extra income, but we opted out and decided to drive down the block to the Rhino that had a $43 cover (posted right at the register!). We will go back to Scores to give it a shot…but again hard to pay a $50 cover when CH3, Treasures, Hustlers and Pal are free for locals and Rhino (an international club) is less for cover.
My favorite dancer moved from Treasures to Scores, so I followed. The club is clean/new but girl quality is very very low. Literally nobody I would want to pay for lapdance (even during peak hours). I tried the club 3 times and then gave up.
I returned to Treasures or Spearmint for future dates. They give me free entry and/or half price drinks, where Scores gave NO discounts. Goodbye scores.
Davehat, thanks for the review of Scores. I’ve been in there but could never get a good feel for the place. But what you say is right.
Came in here a week ago on Friday 1/17. It was my first time. Place was full and there were a lot of dancers. I’m local so half priced drinks and free cover. As soon as I walked in girls were already asking if I wanted a dance. One of them even quoted me $50 a dance. VERY HIGH hustle factor. The club is very small. They said they’re in the middle of expansion so maybe once they expand I’ll try it again. Hopefully the hustle factor won’t be as high.
Thanks for the report, AG.
What did the $50 lap dance girl look like? Hispanic? Big Tits big ass?
Will be in town next week and was wondering if you had any updates on Scores? Have been to most of the clubs in town and wanted to know if Scores was worth a visit. Thanks as always for all of the great info on this site. I never plan a trip to Vegas without it!!
Jon S, I stopped into Scores about a week ago. My review above was updated then. My view is the club is good for locals, who get in free and get drinks for half price. If you’re stopping in on your way home from work for a drink and a dance, it’s a good deal.
If you’re an out-of-towner paying full price, Sapphire or Treasures are a better bet for the same price.
But they’ve got a good manager at Scores. He brings in good dancers and has plans to expand the club. I’m keeping my eye on it.
Trip report for Friday 10/5/2018
Got there near midnight. Valet parking only, but no fee charged (I tipped the guy a few bucks.)
Entry was $20. Club looks good, furnishings don’t seem worn that much.
Two connected round stages in the middle, somewhat crowded collection of tables surrounding. Smaller stages by the back wall and bar.
Fairly good sized crowd (although this is apparently a UFC fight weekend or something.) Guys were tipping at the rail, but not at the every seat filled rate.
Good selection of ladies, three or four dozen. All body types thin to thick, A-cup to D (both natural and enhanced.)
Stage/rail work varied from involved and fantastic to perfunctory and ignorable.
Drink service was a bit slower than I like. Jonnie Walker Black Label was eighteen dollars (not the most expensive I’ve ever paid), bottle of Guinness was fifteen bucks (ouch!)
Floor dances in a regular club rolling chair are posted at $25, but I was told there was a $5 fee for “the clipboard guy”.
Three for a hundred are on more comfortable couches against the far wall.
Privates are done in curtained booths at the other side of the club. Rates shown to me (and listed on the club’s sight) started at three bills for three songs (includes a couple of drinks), six hundred for thirty minutes (with house champagne or two “Premium Drinks”) and $900 for the hour (with better hooch.)
I did not partake of these offerings.
Got a meh level dance on the floor, a pretty good three for a hundred spoiled by hustling for tips, and a fantastic one off that would have easily upsold except she was called to the stage and it was pumpkin time for me.
As always there is a huge variance depending on dancer’s mood, customer’s mood, individual dancers and the connection you build, you know the drill. YMMV.
Don’t know if they’ll keep this level up or if it’s different on week nights vs. weekends, but this is looking like a strong, if pricey addition to the scene.
Arnold….back for another trip in early Sept…..any news on Score’s?
JD, the club was still trying to find its customers and dancers as of early August. I’ll check again before Sept.
Any news on this Place? Will be back in town in June….
JD, they’re still trying to get up and running. I stopped in a week ago at peak hours on a Saturday night and there were about 8 dancers and the same number of customers. I’ll take another look soon.
