It’s clear that Las Vegas has the best strip clubs in the world. There are over a dozen different strip clubs, giving you plenty of options to choose from. But unless you know someone who has visited each club, how do you know which ones are worth your time, and which ones are a bit too shady? I decided to do some in person “research” to find out which Vegas strip clubs are the best.
Spearmint Rhino arguably has the hottest girls in Las Vegas, regardless of your taste. They have girls of every ethnicity from all walks of life. Some have been stripping for a couple years while others fly in from around the world to work during busy weekends.
If you’re looking for the highest quality girls, Rhino is the place to go. The club itself is very well established, so you don’t need to be concerned with safety (this is not an issue at most clubs but is worth mentioning). It is newly renovated and has two main rooms with 4 bars. Both rooms have a large main stage with multiple girls dancing. There is plenty of comfortable seating around the stage area.
There is a smaller more quiet room hidden in the middle, plus several private VIP rooms discreetly located throughout the club. If you want to go the VIP route just talk to the dancer you want, and she will bring you there. Each dancer typically set their own prices, so it is extremely important to find that information out before she starts. If you don’t, you may find yourself on the hook for something outside your price range.
I have heard countless stories (at every Vegas strip club) of someone who got drunk, went into the VIP room, and came out with a several thousand dollar bill. Don’t expect to talk your way out of it. The bouncers have heard every sob story, and don’t care. So know exactly what you’re paying for ahead of time. On average VIP rooms typically cost around $250 for half and hour and about $500 for an hour.
The VIP rooms are fun because there are less rules (notice how I said less rules, not no rules). If you don’t want to go the VIP route, lap dances cost $20 a song (which is about 2-3 minutes). I prefer this because it’s much cheaper and honestly more convenient. You can get lap dances right in your seat without having to move. And in most cases, the dancers will come to you.
The food here is surprising good, and honestly can complete with some restaurants. I highly recommend the chicken fingers. And obviously, they have a wide variety of alcohol available. You’ll definitely feel out of place here without a drink, so plan to getting a few.
The cover charge at Spearmint Rhino is $50, or $20 before 5 pm. Spearmint Rhino also offers a special, where they pick you up in a free limo and waive the cover charge. You just have to pre-purchase 2 drinks when you walk in the door (which most people are going to do regardless). All of this costs $40 and you don’t pay until you get inside the club.
Bottle service at strip clubs is also well worth the money in my opinion. It’s much cheaper than bottle service at nightclubs and all the dancers will flock to your table. Bottle service starts around $250 but they have periodic specials. The easiest way to reserve bottle service is to speak with a VIP host that works for the club. Let me know if you want to order bottle service, and I’ll put you in touch with a host that works at the club. You can do that here.
Sapphire claims to be the world’s largest strip club. After spending an extended amount of time here I can confirm that claim. This place is huge, 71,000 square feet to be exact. Because of the sheer size of this club, they also have the most dancers. In fact, probably too many dancers. Every time I come here I see a few of them bored out of their mind, standing by the bar!
There is a wide selection of girls here, so chances are you’ll find at least one you like. And when you do find one your type, you can either get a lap dance in one of the seats surrounding the stage or in one of the many private VIP rooms. Sapphire has the largest selection of private rooms of any Vegas strip club. You can get group rooms with bottle service or private rooms. They range from sky boxes, to normal VIP rooms, to my personal favorite, the karaoke room.
Bottle service at Sapphire is slightly more expensive than Spearmint Rhino, and starts around $500. But the wider selection of table options makes up for it. The skyboxes are awesome because they overlook the entire club. The karaoke room has a large TV and sound system. It can seat up to 20 people and you don’t even have to do karaoke, you can use it for whatever. Plus, the strippers love to hang out in these rooms.
Then you have the Rockstar table found in the center of the club. This table get the most attention from the dancers, making it ideal for bachelor parties. Every time I’m here this table is flooded with girls! The table itself is located underneath the glass stage, so if the view surrounding the table isn’t enough, you can always look up.
Sapphire, like Rhino, has a free limo special. The special gives you free entry if you pre-purchase 2 drinks when you enter the club. Again, I think this is a steal because most people are going to buy at least 2 drinks anyways. You might as well get a free limo and a waived cover charge out of it.
Crazy Horse 3
Crazy Horse is another large Vegas strip club, but it feels almost like a nightclub. There are a wide range of girls here are that are again, of top quality. Several stages are spread throughout the venue, so you have a choice of which one to pay attention to. This club also has luxury seating in the form of sofas, that are quite comfortable.
Crazy Horse has many similarities to the previous two strip clubs mentioned. They are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. So if you feel like partying at 3 am in the morning, Crazy Horse has you covered. In fact, between 12 pm and 5 am are the best times to go, since that’s when the majority of the dancers will be there. Also, the club is conveniently located directly off the strip. Sapphire, Spearmint Rhino and Crazy Horse are all 5 minutes away from most major Vegas Casinos.
Little Darlings is a fully nude 18+ strip club. Sounds pretty good doesn’t it! But, before you rush over to get lap dances here, there are a couple things that you’re going to want to know. First, Vegas strip clubs that are fully nude can’t serve alcohol. They do serve soft drinks and the bar is surprisingly busy, but you’re wild Vegas trip just got slightly less wild. You can still have plenty of fun here (trust me), but no alcohol is a deal breaker for many.
Second, while all dances are fully nude and take place in a private room, there is no touching (for the most part). That goes for both you and the girl. All dances are essentially air dances. While a bit disappointing, these rules are in place for obvious reasons.
But on the bright side, many of the private rooms used for longer dances (30-60 minutes) are furnished with full beds. Even without touching, fully nude lap dances on a bed are a win. There is no shortage of exotic girls to choose from, so every fantasy will be realized here.
The club is 18+, so many of the girls are around that age. This also allows guys who are under the age of 21 to experience a Vegas strip club. There isn’t much to do in Vegas if your under 21, so Little Darlings should definitely be on your to do list.
The club is open 11 am to 6 am Monday through Saturday. On Sunday they open at 6 pm and close around 4 am. You can find Little Darlings north of the strip. It’s within 5-10 minutes of all major casinos.
If you got excited from the fully nude aspect of Little Darlings, but were turned off by the no alcohol policy, then you’ll want to check out the Palomino. The Palomino Club is the only Vegas strip club with both full nudity and a full bar. It’s the oldest standing Vegas strip club, so the newer laws regarding alcohol where grandfather in.
Don’t let the fact that it’s an older club scare you away; It’s always being renovated and the girls are definitely not that old (there are a few in their 30’s at every club if your into that). The girls are also more experienced than at Little Darlings, so the dancing on stage is slightly better.
Normal topless lap dances cost the industry standard $20. If you want a full nude lap dance you’ll have to get a private VIP room. Luckily, 3 songs only cost $100, which is a bargain compared to most private room dances.
The Palomino Club is located relatively far off of the main strip. They do however offer a free shuttle to the club on their website (depending on how busy the club is). They will bring you both to and from the club. It’s open from 4 pm to 5 am during the week and 4 pm to 7 am on the weekends.
Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club
Larry Flynt’s Huslter Club is gigantic. It’s 4 floors combine to around 70,00 square feet, which is just shy of Sapphire. But, Hustler is much different from Sapphire. Walking through Hustler, feels like your walking through a maze. Each floor has a slightly different ambiance, making your first time here something of an adventure.
The club boasts 6 bars, 15 private suites, a 24 hour kitchen, after hours terrace and a cigar lounge. There is no shortage of things to do here, making the beautiful women walking around almost an afterthought. Hustler has plenty of TVs that have popular sporting events on all night. The strategically placed TVs won’t keep your attention too long, as Hustler commonly has events featuring popular adult stars.
Above the strip club, on the roof of the building is an outside terrace. Every Saturday night (Sunday morning) the terrace is turned into a popular after hours spot, called Terrace After Hours. You can watch the sun rise while listening to some fitting deep house music. You can find Hustler just south of the strip. It’s 5-10 minutes away from the major casinos.
I would call Treasures the most luxurious strip club in Las Vegas. It’s designed like a large Italian villa with high ceilings and super comfortable easy chairs spread throughout the building. There is even a gourmet steakhouse built directly into the club.
Before you question the quality of “strip club food,” it’s actually really good. This makes Treasures a solid spot for bachelor parties, since you can eat and enjoy the dancers all in one place. The happy hour specials make the case for Treasures all the more compelling. From 4 pm to 7 pm you can expect these prices:
- Domestic beers – $2
- Imported beers and well drinks – $3
- Call drinks – $4
- Premium drinks – $5
Those are some of the best happy hour specials in all of Las Vegas. Plus from 7-8 pm all drinks are half priced.
Most of the VIP rooms are upstairs, and the rates are in line with most other Vegas strip clubs. The smaller VIP rooms have glass doors and aren’t fully hidden, but they aren’t in a high traffic area so it doesn’t matter. The larger VIP rooms are much bigger and have plush couches inside. If you would rather have the complete girlfriend experience instead of a lap dance, Treasures is the only club that I know of where you can actually invite the dances to eat dinner with you.
Treasures is within a 5 minutes from the strip. The club is open from 4 pm to 8 am on the weekends and 4 pm to 6 am during the week.
Centerfold’s is located on the east side of the Vegas strip. This makes it the most accessible strip club for anyone staying at hotels on that side of the strip, specifically the Hard Rock. Centerfolds is a solid club with excellent customer service. The VIP “blackout” rooms are more private than at most Vegas strip clubs, making for a very intimate experience. In addition to top shelf liquors, the club also has food available for order at the bar. Centerfold’s is open every day from 4 pm to 6 am.
Deju Vu Showgirls
Deja Vu is a smaller strip club, but still a solid option, since it’s conveniently located 5 minutes from the strip. The club offers several attractive promotions including $2 drinks on Tuesday and an open bar on Monday until 9 pm. These happy hour specials allow you to save money on drinks so you can put more towards lap dances. The private VIP rooms are also top notch. They have an actual door you can shut for complete privacy. Some of the VIP rooms also have beds available for topless private dances. The club is open everyday from 6 pm to 6 am.
Cheetahs is another smaller niche strip club. The club can be found a bit north of the main Vegas strip. It’s a bit further away than most strip clubs but Cheetahs is still only 5-10 from most major casinos. Similar to Deja Vu, Cheetahs has $2 drinks every Tuesday. That includes beers, cocktails and shots. It’s also the place where the famous 1995 movie “Showgirls” was filmed, making it a Vegas icon. Cheetahs is open from 4 pm to 8 pm on the weekends and 4 pm to 5 am during the week.
Sophia’s is a newer strip club, located within a 5 minute drive from the strip. The club has 1 large stage in the center and 3 total bars. The main bar has several TVs that play whatever sporting event is on that evening. The club isn’t too busy during the week and early in the evening, so you’ll have no trouble getting the attention of girls. You’ll find plush VIP rooms on the second floor of the club where you can order bottle service or smoke hookah. Drinks are priced fairly as the club has alternating specials including $2 drinks on Tuesdays. Sophia’s is open everyday from 6 pm to 6 am.
Girl Collection is a strip club run by the famous boxer Floyd Mayweather. The main room has 2 stages and 3 total poles for dancers but the club is relatively small overall. It’s open 4 days a week but I found Girl Collection to only get busy on Friday and Saturday. Do to it’s affiliation with Mayweather the club takes boxing matches seriously, as every VIP room has at least 1 TV (even the bathrooms are stocked with Televisions). Girl Collection seems like a better place to hang out and watch boxing matches than a place to get lap dances. It’s open Thursday – Sunday from 10 pm to 5 am and can be found north of the strip near the Stratosphere.
Club Platinum was featured on the show Bar Rescue and is the smallest Vegas strip club. It looks like it’s closed from the outside but it’s open from 7 pm to 3 am everyday. The pros of this club are no cover charge, they have video poker and the drinks are cheap. The cons include being super small and not having a lot of dancers. This is a club you would visit for convenience, since it’s one of the few clubs found on the east side of the Vegas strip. It’s close to the many hotels located off of the main strip on East Flamingo Road.
What is the dress code at Vegas strip clubs? Vegas strip clubs dress codes are more relaxed than nightclub dress codes. Most items are allowed into the club. For example you can where jeans, sneakers and a t-shirt without a problem. Items not allowed are sweatpants, jersey, shorts, flip flops, tank tops and sportswear.
How much does a lap dance cost at a Vegas strip club? Lap dances cost $20 per song (2-3 minutes) at most strip clubs. Each dancer sets their own prices but private dances typically cost $100 for 3 songs. The industry standard for a private VIP room dance is $250 for 30 minutes and $500 for an hour.
Do the dancers at strip clubs come to me or do I go to them? For the most part, dancers at Vegas strip clubs will come to you. They will either start a conversation or ask you directly if you would like a dance. It is also acceptable to approach a dancer yourself, as long as they are not with another client.
Do Vegas strip clubs have cover charges? Most Vegas strip clubs have cover charges, which range from $20-$50 depending on the club. Some strip clubs have free limo pickups available where they waive your cover charge and bring you to the club for free. Those specials require you to pre-purchase 2 drinks once you walk in the door.
