Tips for Visiting Las Vegas Strip Clubs
Some of the more upscale joints require tucked-in shirts with collars. Others allow untucked collared shirts or T-shirts. Shorts are a big no everywhere. The general rule is “look presentable.” If you can swing it, look good. You’re going to be surrounded by beautiful women after all, so rep yourself well.
Bring however much cash you’re willing to spend.
Money makes the world go round. This statement can’t be any truer than it is at a strip club. You can get drinks with your debit or credit card, but you can forget about stage or lap dances. Dancers are cash only. Yes, there are ATMs at strip clubs, but many charge a 15 percent fee or more; if you withdraw $100, you’re giving up nearly a lap dance-worth of fees. Stop by an ATM before you head to the strip club. Even if it’s at a casino, the fee is likely less than what you’ll pay at a strip club.
Do NOT ask your taxi or uber driver to take you to a strip club.
Strip Clubs in Las Vegas are notorious for gouging out of state tourists at the door, often charging exorbitant cover fees as high as $50. The money is paid as a kickback or commission to the taxi driver, limo driver, hotel doorman, or promoter that sent the business to the club. As you can imagine, asking for a recommendation does not usually lead to a honest rec – instead, they will send you to whichever club is paying the highest commission. The practice of Las Vegas cabbies muscling strip clubs and ultimately their patrons into paying high dollar kickbacks has earned them the nickname of the Las Vegas Taxi Mafia.
In general – keep your hands to yourself.
Maybe you’ve heard tales of wild and reckless abandon at Las Vegas strip clubs, or maybe you’ve seen that travesty of truth, “Showgirls.” Either way, understand this: These women are, no matter how it may seem, working. Keep your hands to yourself and you’ll avoid a kick in the groin or a bouncer’s meaty shove. Leaving the grinding to the gals will get you a better lap dance anyway.
Don’t forget to tip.
Hellooooo? You gotta tip. These gals work for tips and tips alone. That means this: (1) Don’t go into a strip club with barely enough dough to cover a round of brew; (2) Don’t look repeatedly at a dancer working her stuff without walking up and tipping her; and (3) Do not, under any circumstances, sit stage-side without a pocketful of dollars. How much will you need for a night? If you are an average drinker, figure at least $30 per hour for a drink or two and stage tipping; lap dances go for $20 each, so add that on if you think you’ll find the woman of your dreams. (You will, so add it now.)
Prostitution is 100 percent illegal in Clark County.
Don’t solicit, suggest dinner or ask for a date. These women are dancers, not hookers.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Are the strip clubs full nude or topless only?
Most of the clubs are topless only.
What kind of girls will I find at these clubs?
The girls stripping in Las Vegas are a pretty diverse group at depending on the time of year is estimated to be about ten thousand strong between all the clubs. They come from all walks of life and range from professionals who have been in the game for over a decade to the cliched college student striping their way through school. Every ethnicity is represented. Asians of all variety, europeans, latinas, ebony, and I once worked at a club that had one Eskimo stripper. In the topless clubs all the girls are 21 and up and range in age from early 20s to mid 40’s. If they still have the look, still have the body, and still have the passion to strip the clubs don’t discriminate. If the younger set is your thing, all the girls under 21 dance at the all nude venues. Little darlings and Palomino club are easily the best when it come to young all nude dancers. Overall (and speaking from experience) most Las Vegas strippers are sexy fun girls who enjoy what they do, and would rather work in a party environment than work a desk job. Don’t be shy — they’re at the club to hang out and entertain you!
How much are lapdances at Las Vegas strip clubs?
The Las Vegas strip club industry standard is $20 per song on the main floor. This can vary and we have heard of floor dances occasionally going up to $30. Vip rooms are a different story and again vary from club to club. Most Vegas VIP rooms have drink and/or bottle minimums, although some do not. The VIP rooms are generally based on time: the more time you decide to spend with an entertainer in the VIP, the more money it will cost. Industry standard is 3 songs for $100, half an hour from $250 to $300, and an hour from $400 to $500. Make sure you confirm the price before going in, or you might end up saddled with a very expensive tab!
