Sophia’s is back up and running under new ownership and management.
OG (Olympic Garden), a Vegas landmark topless club, has moved its entire staff and operations to the recently closed Sophia’s. OG is now closed.
This was a very fast and unexpected move. In fact, Sophia’s had just closed two weeks before OG bought the place and moved in. Sophia’s is the club that used to be Badda Bing, though it’s been totally remodeled since then.
This is a two-level club. Downstairs is the main room with the big central stage, two bars, and a VIP room used for the 3/100 dances only.
Upstairs is another bar, another VIP room for the 30- and 60-minute dances, and seven private suites, for 60 minute dances. The VIP rooms are group VIPs. The private suites are plush and large enough for a few friends to be entertained by a few dancers. All have windows that overlook the main room downstairs, with curtains that can be closed.
The new main stage is low and surrounded by seats. (I mention this because Badda Bing had a main stage so high there were no seats on the rail.) If you like watching dancers close up and tipping them, this is an excellent stage.
A domestic beer at the downstairs bar cost me $7 (because I’m a local), but drinks for non-locals start at $15.
Lap dances are $20. 15-minute dances in the downstairs VIP room are $160 (price includes two drinks). Upstairs, 30-minute dances are $300 (price includes three drinks). Also upstairs, 60-minute dances are $600 (price includes five drinks). There are also private rooms with curtained-doors, about one step down in elegance from Sapphire’s Skyboxes for the same $800 Sapphire charges—that includes a bottle at both clubs. But Sophia’s offers nowhere near Sapphire’s dancer selection.
Cover charge for out-of-towners who arrive by cab is $45. Locals free. Out-of-towners who arrive in their own transportation will have to pay a two-drink minimum. The amount of that charge seems still in flux.
OG had male strippers in their upstairs showroom five nights a week, but Sophia’s has no upstairs showroom, so that feature of OG is now dead. Sophia’s is now offering food.
On a recent Saturday night visit around midnight, there were a couple dozen dancers in the club.

Deja Vu Showgirls (club review/ club website) is offering the best private show deals right now among the high-mileage topless clubs. The elegant rooms are furnished with large sofas or beds where you can stretch out with the dancer of your choice, and start at 15 minutes for $150. That’s only $10 more than most clubs charge for 10 minutes in the group VIP.
