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.

Other Vegas Strip Clubs You Might Enjoy

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.

Treasures (club review/ club website) is the most luxurious of the high-mileage Vegas topless clubs, populated with stacked 9s and 10s who know how to pamper a man.

    I have hopes but not a lot of expectations.

    Went here back in late ’11 when it was “Privilege” (time between “Bada Bing” and “Sophia’s”). Outstanding building, but dead as anything on a Friday night.

    Can’t comment on other strip clubs as this was my first time in Vegas. Got $20 entry plus 2 x free beers from some fixer with a couple of mates. Venue is nice, not too big – good main stage with stools surrounding, lounge areas to chill and meet the girls. $20 (15min) area just to the side of stage (which my mate hit), $160 lounge area for a longer session and more private dance (which I and another mate hit). Good service, nice Looking girls. Offered the upstairs area for a price – $300…but that would’ve probably risen with certain extras – Couldn’t be fucked to be honest! (Although I was given a tour…which was obviously to tempt me I’m!) It was a nice area of private rooms, with balconys (with curtains) over looking the main stage. Decent strip club. Although I haven’t been to Sapphire or Spearmint….other worldly apparently, along with the prices I bet!

    Im heading to vegas for a Bachelor party super bowl weekend with 11 guys. What club would you recommend? Last time we went to Rino it was a blast but looking for something different and not as crowded/ more attention if possible. Any ideals?

      James, I recommend Palomino Club. The stage show is the best in town, and the dancers are gorgeous and will lavish attention on you. They have different bachelor party packages, including one where you can get the entire second stage to yourselves, or you can work out a custom package.

      It has a different feel than the major topless clubs like Sapphire or Rhino because it’s a nude club and a bit smaller (though with the same quality dancers and royalty treatment). You want to plan to enjoy the stage show and get some private-booth dances, which are fully nude.

    I visited this club in mid-Dec 2019. It was a decent experience, so I paid another visit recently–and got a completely opposite experience.

    I rolled up to the front entrance. There was no doorman or valet. Not a problem; it was very cold (below 40). I parked my own vehicle. I opened the front door, and found the doorman. I showed him my NV ID. He seemed confused. He asked me where my car was. I explained I parked myself because there was no one outside. He says that’s was okay; he wouldn’t charge me a cover–but there would be a two drink minimum. I figured that I’m a local–how much could that be? The girl at the register charges me $40! I go inside–and the place is empty! There’s no one on stage; there are no dancers in sight, and there are no customers in sight.

    I did find two lonely dancers. I chatted them up to try and figure out if business was just bad “here”, or if the other clubs would be just as bad. I consumed my two drinks, and left–but that was because they decided to close and announced “last call’.

    Knowing how dead the club was, the doorman should have explained the situation, and offered to let me take a look before deciding whether or not I wanted to buy my drink coupons. This club must have been really desperate for my $40. Not a good move if you are trying to build a regular clientele.
