A Better Way to Choose a Vegas Strip Club


If you're looking for information on the best strip clubs in Las Vegas, you just hit the jackpot, Jack. You've found the ultimate Las Vegas guide to girls peeling off their underthings in public.

Las Vegas Topless Clubs, Nude Clubs and More

There are 16 topless gentlemen's clubs in Las Vegas, seven clubs where the girls are on stage fully nude, ten casino shows that feature topless showgirls, bars and nightclubs that feature erotic entertainment, peep shows, swingers' clubs, 10 adults-only topless party pools, and a dozen male revues, including one where the guys dance nude.

We've got strip clubs with such an awesome number of drop-dead gorgeous dancers that the scene rivals the harem of the Sultan of Brunei. We've got strip clubs that offer private VIP rooms where you can close the door and get creative with the dancer of your choice.

We've got high-mileage lap dances, nude bed dances, shower shows, mud and oil wrestling, bikini bull-riding, pretty beaver contests, and Monday night football titty blizzards. We’ve got strip clubs that feature stacked dancers, others that feature big booty, and still others that feature 18-year-olds who can fly around the stripper poles.

We’ve even got high-end legal brothels an hour's drive from Vegas.

As a traveling man, I've been to strip clubs in just about every state in the U.S.—including Alaska and Hawaii—and a lot of other countries as well, and I've never seen another town like this one for strip clubs. The best strip clubs in Las Vegas are some of the best strip clubs in the world.

Best Las Vegas Strip Clubs Updated for March 2015

The March 2015 update of TVO’s “Best Las Vegas Strip Clubs” has been posted.

In compiling the data I use to make my recommendations, I try to look at everything from the dancer quality and quantity to the quality of the lap dances, private shows, stage shows, and special events, to good value in drink prices and VIP room prices, to the general comfort and attractiveness of the clubs.

The clubs who made the cut this time each have different strengths, which you can read about in their descriptions, but overall I’m looking for the clubs most likely to turn you on, at the best value, and with the lowest hustle.

This list is always in flux, the competition is tough in this town, and there are some contenders who didn’t quite make the cut this time who may make it in a future update.  In the meantime, have fun out there.  The Vegas strip clubs are the best in the world.

Di’ Lovely

Cha Cha Velour’s Las Vegas Burlesque Studio will be conducting a workshop on audience seduction tonight.

The workshop, aimed at dancers, will be taught by San Diego burlesque performer, Di’ Lovely.  It starts at 8:00 pm and costs $25 at the door (or $20 if you reserve in advance–you’ll find a link to sign up below).

The workshop is titled “The Lascivious Approach,” and is described on the event’s Facebook page:

Take power of your audience, with strong eye contact and wanton glances. This class will focus on slowing down, being aware of your own body, and letting yourself go to raw, organic movement. Not only will you seduce the audience, but you may even turn yourself on!

This workshop is great for ALL LEVELS of performers who want to break it down, focusing on emitting more sensuality rather than being too focused on dance choreography. There will be interactive exercises with other students, as well as movement across the floor–on the floor. Wear long leggings and sleeves because we’re bound to get dirty! Shoes optional. No choreography will be taught.

The Las Vegas Burlesque Studio is located at 1800 Industrial Rd Suite 205, Las Vegas–right in the heart of the Vegas strip club district.

Deja Vu Showgirls Petitions U.S. Supreme Court

[See Feb 25 update below.]

Since 2006, Deja Vu Showgirls (club review /club website) has been fighting with the state of Nevada over the Live Entertainment Tax (LET). Deja Vu has already taken its case to the Nevada Department of Taxation, State District Court for Clark County, the Nevada Supreme Court, and the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals–all without success.

Now, according to Law360, Deja Vu is petitioning the U.S. Supreme Court to review the Nevada Supreme Court ruling, and I admire Harry Mohney for doing it.

Deja Vu is bringing the case as a First Amendment issue. The State of Nevada imposed a 10% Live Entertainment Tax, allegedly on all live entertainment venues in the state, then subsequently created 26 “exemptions” to the tax–such as the “family oriented” entertainment exemption, and exemptions based on the “occupancy load” of the venues, etc.–that has resulted in the tax being imposed on strip clubs only, which obviously was the intention all along.

Deja Vu argues that although the tax law never states that the LET is a tax on strip clubs, the effect of the exemptions written into the law has made the LET a tax on strip clubs, which is a violation of the First Amendment. All forms of entertainment are protected by the First Amendment and should be treated equally by the tax laws.

Deja Vu is seeking not only that the law be abolished as facially unconstitutional, but that all back taxes collected by the state under this law be refunded. In the fiscal year that ended in June 2014, the strip clubs in Nevada paid $3.76 million in Live Entertainment Taxes.

The question now is whether a U.S. Supreme Court packed with feminists and Opus Dei Catholics will even hear the case.



[Update, Feb 25, 2015: The U.S.Supreme Court has already denied Deja Vu’s request to review the Nevada Supreme Court’s decision. No surprise to me.]

Stripping for the Dead

Funeral Strippers in Taiwan

In 2011, Mark L. Moskowitz, an anthropologist, made a documentary film titled “Dancing for the Dead: Funeral Strippers in Taiwan,” in which he takes the wraps off the scantily-clad young female dancers who perform on “Electric Flower Cars” (essentially stages on wheels) that typically accompany religious processions.

The practice has been going on in rural Taiwan since the 1800s, and according to Chen Chung-hsien, an official at Wu Fu Temple in Taiwan’s Taoyuan county, the dancers “… perform for the gods and the spirits to seek blessings … They have become part of our religion.”

What the hell is wrong with religions in America that they can’t show the same respect for the dead and for the living?

In Taiwan, people line the streets just to watch the funeral processions of departed souls they never even knew. On the Electric Flower Cars they’ll see strippers in schoolgirl outfits, pole dancers, and even strippers who juggle flaming torches. Now that’s a proper send-off!

The video below is a trailer for Moskowitz’s film:

Best Time to Go to a Vegas Strip Club

Prime Time in the Vegas Strip Clubs is Later than in Other Cities

Las Vegas strip clubs are on a late schedule compared to strip clubs in most other cities. Prime time in the Vegas clubs—by which I mean the hours when you’ll find the greatest number of lap dancers working the floor and generally the best performances on stage—is from 1:00 am to 3:00 am.

This isn’t because the dancers who show up early aren’t good performers.  It’s just that a big crowd tends to bring out the best in any performer, and the crowds start getting serious around midnight in Vegas.  The clubs get packed between 1:00 am and 3:00 am, and stay crowded even later than that.

If you show up at pretty much any Vegas strip club at 10 to 11 pm, don’t be surprised if the audience doesn’t fill the club and you see a smaller number of dancers than the TVO club review told you to expect.  That’s because half the club’s dancers are still in the dressing room chatting and putting their make-up on.

You might deem this club a waste of time and never return, when in fact the club is only starting to wake up.  Come back in a couple of hours, and you’ll likely find the joint is jumping.

Las Vegas is a town that comes alive in the wee hours, more so than any other city in the country.  There are a number of reasons for this. First and foremost, Nevada is the only state in the U.S. that allows the on-premises sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages 24/7/365. There’s no “last call for alcohol” in any bar or nightclub in Nevada unless an establishment elects to shut down its bar service voluntarily.

Nevada is also one of few jurisdictions anywhere in the world where public drunkenness is 100% legal and where state law prohibits local jurisdictions from making public inebriation a crime.

In most cities, the majority of the work force gets off between 3:00 pm and 6:00 pm–rush hour–a time when the local bars see a slew of customers coming in to unwind with a drink or two (or 3 or 4).  But in Vegas a huge chunk of the work force is employed on swing shift in casinos or hospitality-related businesses like restaurants.

The Vegas swing shift ends between midnight and 3:00 am. So, that’s when the night clubs and bars (including strip clubs) really come alive.

Vegas strip clubs that have special events like feature dancers often advertise these events as starting at 10 pm, 11 pm, or midnight, but you shouldn’t be surprised if the event doesn’t actually get going until closer to 1 am.

So, if you’re looking for the biggest crowds, best stage shows and greatest selection of top-end dancers in the Vegas strip clubs, the wee hours of the morning are your best bet.

But, late night isn’t always the best time strategy for everyone.

The Benefits of Coming Early to the Vegas Strip Clubs

I am usually one of the customers you will find at 10 or 11 pm–or even earlier–in my favorite Vegas strip clubs, large or small. Here’s why.

Showing up before the big crowds arrive puts you in an excellent position for getting the best selection of available lap dancers in the major Vegas strip clubs.  What good is it to spot that dancer across the room who is exactly your type, if there’s virtually no chance she’ll make it to your side of the packed club before she’s snapped up by someone else?

And dancers who come to work earlier at the clubs usually pay a lower stage fee to the club.  That means they don’t have to sell so hard just to get in the black for the evening, and that tends to make the hustle factor a lot lower earlier in the evening.

Earlier in the evening, the dancers are relaxed.  Their feet aren’t hurting yet from those awful shoes.  They haven’t been turned down a dozen times for lap dances yet, or had rude customers insult their looks.  They’re fresh and charming and natural.

They can take the time to have a drink with you and chitchat (always tip for their time regardless!), without feeling that they are wasting time they should be spending in the VIP with someone else.

The lower-stage-fee enticement also tends to eliminate the first-string/second-string effect in Vegas.  Dancers who start early tend to stay on into the peak hours, and dancers who start late tend to stay on until the early morning hours.  Both sets of dancers are peak-hour worthy.  They just have different starting-time and stage-fee preferences.

And even if you see fewer dancers in the room than at peak hours when you arrive, you can be sure you will see a lot more dancers in the room and on stage before you leave.

Also, stage performances tend to get better if there are customers showing appreciation, whether the crowd is huge yet or not.  To me a stage performance is as erotic as a lap dance, and so I’m prepared to pay as much for a stage performance as I would for a lap dance.  So even though I often go to the Vegas strip clubs early, I tend to see great stage performances because I tip the stage dancers a lot.

In addition, you will often find exceptional drink and private dance deals in the afternoon and early evening, plus other amenities like free or discounted food (see the club reviews for details).

So there’s no reason not to come to a Vegas strip club early if that’s what  you prefer.  Just understand that the party will just be getting underway, and don’t read anything into it.
