Sophia’s is Reopened
Sophia’s is back up and running under new management (formerly at the now-defunct OG). Long-time Vegas strip club regulars will notice that Sophia’s is in the venue that used to be Badda Bing, though it’s been totally remodeled since then. It’s a two-level club. Downstairs is the main room with the big central stage, two bars, and a VIP room used for the 3 for $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. It will give you an idea of the problems with dancer quality that even with half-price drinks and a luxurious setting, this club fails to attract locals. If you’re paying full price, you will be depressed at how ripped-off you feel after you leave this club.
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 (which also have real doors). The private rooms go for the same $800 Sapphire charges — that includes a bottle at both clubs. But Sapphire has 400+ of the finest babes in Las Vegas on offer for those rooms, while Sophia’s is more like a dancer retirement home.
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 club offers typical bar food.

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