|Las Vegas used to
be a pretty hot town for strip clubs. But lately, they've been busting the
nasty clubs so less goes on but if you look in the right places, you'll
still find some gems. It's still way better than San Diego, but then, what
city isn't? As far as the quantity of good lookers, Vegas is right up there
with Florida and Texas. Some clubs are packed full with the best looking
dancers you'll find anywhere in the world.
No matter how you slice it, Las Vegas has so much more vices to offer than
LA. That's why I love it. Where else can you gamble legally, drink alcohol
anywhere 24 hours a day and go to strip clubs? People often ask me if
prostitution is legal. No, it's illegal in Vegas and Reno but you can drive
to another county where it is legal.
As far as working in Vegas, dancers have to go get a dancing work card. There is more information on
or call (702) 229-3271.

permit info on the website is outdated.

Last time I was here, it was more like "Can't Can't Room". Located in a
mini-mall and pretty small. Nude with no alcohol. Small club in mini-mall.
They try to sell you expensive drinks for the lady. Forget it! There is
also a private area in the back for nude dances. Don't even bother.
Nothing happens except you become broke. It's OK for just sitting at the
stage and tipping.

This club has gotten a facelift recently. As you enter, the first thing
you see is that the old VIP area has been removed and a new smaller stage
now replaces it. Once you get into the main area, it looks pretty much
Topless dancers work it on a very large stage and some tiny thin
counter stages with poles. You can get laps in the main room or in the VIP
room. The VIP room has been moved to where the small stage used to be to
the right of the DJ booth. Great place to hang out with buds and drink.

Topless, newer hot club across the street from Hard Rock. The place
looks like a million bucks. Lots of good looking dancers on main stage,
plus smaller stages. Get no contact table dances in main area or VIP area.
When I was there last time, the VIP area was not separate from the main
area but I've been told it is separate now.

This club has been completely renovated since my last visit here. It
looks nice and new on the outside as well as the inside. There are now 2
large stages and the strange booths with poles are all gone. Lap dances
are done on couches all around the club and there is also a private VIP
area where you have to pay $100 in advance to checkout. The dancers
provide a full grind in the club area and much more in the VIP area with
the right girl.

This club looks and feels like the Little Darlings about 1.5 miles from
this one. Same owner, same format. Same carpeting, wall, stage,
decorations, booth size/shape, drink cup, lighting as the
North Hollywood Deja Vu
(also owned 55% by same owner) that just opened as well.
You can take this as: Wow, that's good, it's a constant like going to
Denny's in any city. OR, how boring, why even go there?
The outside of the building is just another boring left corner of a small
mini-mall. The strange thing about is, there is no parking lot. There is a
driveway on the left side to the back which apparently has a few spaces.
As you enter, there is the required Deja Vu store followed by the bar
where you have to buy a $10 drink. Inside the club, everything is brand
new as you would expect from a new Deja Vu club. The stage is medium with
fancy lighting 4 IntelliBeams(tm). 5 booths in main area, 45 tables, 25
booths in VIP area, which also has a very large shower booth with 2 shower
heads. This shower booth would easily fit 3-4 customers.
All dancers must pay a $70 tipout, and must sell 8 drinks at $5 each. For
all drinks after the 8th, the dancer keeps the $5 via poker chip from the
waitress. $15 for any type of dance (table, booth, shower), dancer keeps
$10. Dancers at Little Darlings only have to sell 5 drinks. Dancers at
North Hollywood does not have to sell any drinks. I'm not sure I get the
point of why do they have to sell more drinks at the new club?
If you like next door type blonds, check out Taylor. But she's from
Seattle (Federal Deja Vu), so she won't be there too long. I got a double
trouble booth dance from Taylor and her friend Danielle hoping for the
same treatment as Little Darlings but the girls were not into it enough.
Nevertheless, Taylor is a cute dancer that would be good for a dance or
All dancers were from other Deja Vu clubs including Vegas, Seattle,
Ontario, San Diego, etc. Laura from Little Darlings (see review below) was
there and she does the best pole work I have seen in 5 years. Upside down
crawls, upside down, no hands, one leg hold (do they have insurance for
that?) and other moves that I've never seen before. She is such a sweet
little cutie, I can't say enough good things about her. She sat and talked
to us for a while knowing that I was not going to get any dances. She gave
me a copy of the March 1996 Deja Vu Showgirls Magazine which she is in
because Little Darlings is featured in this issue. For those interested in
seeing what she looks like, just turn to page 35.
Laura told me about a very interesting stage trick that Deja Vu uses.
They use stainless steel poles that spin. This makes spins of 18-20
revolutions possible by great dancers. But how do they dances after that?
I guess they just go down on the floor and pretend to do floor work while
they are dizzy.
The manager (Lee) was very nice and helpful. He told us what was going
on there and in Vegas and gave us free T-shirts. If you're reading this,
thanks again for your hospitality. A lot of clubs forget that it is part
of the service industry. These guys really know how to make customers feel
special. One of the dancers pointed out the owner of the club but he was
too busy for us to talk to.
Unfortunately, I'm already jaded with clubs and Deja Vu's constant same
look just adds to my boredom. I guess that's why they call it "Deja Vu"...
it feels like you've already been to this club before. The only good thing
about new Deja Vu clubs is that you get to meet dancers from other cities,
in case you go there. Strangely, both Deja Vu clubs in Vegas are very
mild. I also visited Olympic Gardens and
Cheetah's with JayJ and my friend and we got much
better dances there. It was almost back to the old time level (not quite).

This club is in the downtown area of Las Vegas near Union Plaza (or
whatever it's called now). During COMDEX or CES, they have tons of
waitresses who pounce on you like vultures. It's a relatively small and
dingy looking place for Vegas standards. There are 2 stages with multiple
dancers on busy nights. There are couches all around the club where
lap/chair dances are performed. There is no compelling reason to come here
unless you are already in downtown and must go to a strip club.

If you want to see where the locals hang out for their strip club
entertainment, you might venture out here for a quick look. The
sign on the door tells you everything you need to know about what to
expect. The club is very old and needs a lot of work but is a fair size
for a local hangout. There is a stage with a runway that has holes for
fog/smoke to shoot out from all over the runway. Booths and chairs all
around the club, broken pool table, and a half working pinball machine.
There's a large bar to the right of the club with stools and video
poker machines embedded into the table top. Most of the regulars where
just sipping beer and gambling on the video games. The few dancers I saw
should not be working as dancers. I'd rather see them as waitresses or
bouncers. I didn't see any table or lap dancing and in fact, I really
didn't see much dancing even on the stage.
This is obviously a local beer joint for the locals to come and drink
and hangout with the dancers. There is a time clock at the entrance with
the dancers names so I assume they get paid to work there. Therefore, the
dancers are not expecting to make much money on stage and are happy just
talking to the regulars.
Update November 2001:
Rockin'Queen (DOM May 2001)
reports that she is working here and there has been some improvements at
this club, including a new lap room (where the pool table used to be), the
pinball machine is gone, and the dancers' attitudes have improved. She
reports that the drink prices are reasonable and there is no cover charge.

As usual, I wanted to go to a club I haven't been to yet, so I went to
the Deja Vu affiliated Little Darlings. It's almost within walking
distance from Cheetah's. The building looks like a
warehouse but is new and clean. Upon entering, it's the bookstore first,
then club layout that many Deja Vu's seem to have.
Right off the bat, I got p***ed-off because I forgot my Deja Vu VIP
card and couldn't remember my number. We tried typing in a couple of
numbers with no luck. Now for those of you thinking, VIP card! What kind
of hardcore Deja Vu customer is ZBone? Well, FYI, if you go to the Deja Vu
booth at CES in January, they will send you a VIP card for FREE (worth
But I digress. So I end up paying an extra $20 for me and my friend. We
walk thru a long hallway and the bar is on the right. You have to buy your
OWN drink right at the bar before you can go in. $10 per drink but refills
Medium sized stage in the middle with chairs and tables all the way
around. Against the walls, they have mini-couches (more like soft chair)
with a little booth hiding the customer but not the dancer. There is also
a VIP room with larger couches. Also, behind the bar, there is a open room
that is raised a little higher with couches. This area reminds me a little
of the Cheetah's "VIP" room except much smaller.
We watched the stage show for a while without being harassed for a
while. There was a dancer that did back flips on stage! Not too sexy but
fun to watch.
A couple of dancers walked up to us and we politely refused dances.
Then a dancer came on stage and put whip cream on her body, nipples, into
her mouth and put cherries into her mouth and on other parts of her body.
Interesting but very messy show. I hope that have a shower in the back. I
know they have a shower dance so .... get the hint? Sure.
After turning down more dancers, my friend says to me, "The mug says,
100 beautiful dancers and 3 ugly ones... looks more like the opposite." I
had to admit he was right. I looked very carefully and did not see any
good looking dancers. Not a good sign to come. But it was very early
(7pm?) so I was hoping the night shift was not in yet.
We wait and wait and sure enough, there were more dancers appearing
from somewhere that we had not seen before. They were looking better. No,
there's no alcohol so we were sober. Although the taxi driver said it was
BYOB. We don't drink that much anyway.
While I was there, they did one of those ALL dancers on stage things
and I counted about 45 dancers plus a few not on stage. I'm sure this is
because of COMDEX and is not normal. Some of them looked fine. Then they
stand on the tables and dance. REAL table dancing. The one dancing behind
me looked good so after she was finished, I motioned her to come over.
She was not my type (very petite, small t**s) but nice face and good
bod. She told me her name is Laura.
While I am talking to her and finding out that she worked in Florida, San
Diego, Los Angeles, Arizona, etc, another dancer walks up to her and
starts to flirt with her and grabs her butt. OK, I'm sold. Off to the
booth I go.
I get a double with both girls in a very tiny, tiny booth. I couldn't
have planned it better! The boot was so small, we could barely fit. It is
nude laps but no heavy grinding for $15 per song per girl. However, no
rules about the girls touching each other. My favorite activity. Laura
also turns out to be an ex-gymnast and stands on her hands and puts her
point of interest up to my face while she balanced. Never saw that before.
I was hoping she would lose her balance but amazingly she didn't. I
thought that was going to be her excuse to fall on me, but nope.
Luckily I was wearing a short sleeve shirt because that booth was
really cramped. I later got a dance in the VIP room but I actually got
less there because it isn't cramped so the touching was very brief (slight
pokes and whoops only).
The second dancer used to work at .... yup
Mon's. So my eye's lit up until she
said, "Yeah, I started to hate it there and I got so burned out I had to
move. All the groping got to me. Luckily, here we don't have to put up
with that." Oh, well. I got so disappointed, I didn't ask any more
questions after that. She even wanted her money up front. Boy, is she
jaded or what. I don't really blame her especially during COMDEX.
That's about all. We got a few more nude table dances right at our
table and that was about it. I have to admit, when you are in a very
crowded (standing room only) club, and a dancer does a nude no contact lap
dance at your table, it's kind of sexy. We watched a few more dancers and
split. They didn't even have business cards there. How can I do a decent

Probably the largest club in Las Vegas, and to top it off, it's right
on the strip. This club is topless with alcohol and there is no shortage
of dancers. As you enter, there is a big area to the right (with 2 or 3
stages) and another entire large area to the left (with 2 more stages) and
plenty of space for table and chair dances.
There is an upstairs where on some nights, male exotic dancers dance.
During the last CES (or was it COMDEX?), the upstairs was open for the
female dancers and the stage is enormous and 2 or 3 dancers would go on
stage at one time. If I remember correctly, there is a micro-stage in the
VIP room and including that stage, I think there are about 7 or 8 stages
in this huge club. Some of the stages are high and the stage floor is
covered with black plexiglass.
There are booth type seating, tables and chairs, all over the place.
Last time I was there, I got some hot table dances there. Plenty of touchy
feeley stuff with some great looking dancers. Some dancers will sit with
you for a while and chat.
Don't come here if you don't like fake boobs and tall blond chicks. If
you want to checkout just one strip club in Vegas, put this one on your

This place has nude with alcohol. Downstairs contains a runway stage
with D.J., M.C. and manned lighting. If you go on a busy night, you'll
have to tip the guy big to sit on stage. Otherwise, go during the day and
sit there for free. Last time I was there, if you tip big on stage, you
can get full Stevie Wonder, chest rubdowns and hand traps.
There are 2 small stages upstairs and a private dancing area. Nude laps
are good but don't expect Mon's type
action. I found it was better to get a nude private booth dance from one
of the girls from downstairs because they have more juice with the lady
that watches over them. This means that they can cheat a little more than
the new girls that dance upstairs.

This yet another addition to the Rhino chain is located in a strip mall
which used to house the old Runway 69 Club, which then became all sorts of
other clubs before finally turing into a Rhino. They bought the gay club
next door and since then have gone from nude to topless with alcohol, as
well as combined the space for a much larger club.
You enter through a micro lobby entrance area where the cashier is to
your right. After paying, you enter the front area of the club where the
first bar is located. There is a micro stage in this area as well as tiny
booths to sit and drink or watch TV. Past this area is the VIP room on the
right side and the main room with stage and another smaller bar. The DJ
booth is past the stage followed by some offices in the extreme back area.
Although I did see a few marginal looking dancers, keep in mind that my
trip was during CES and this can cause some strange temporary hiring
practices. On the night I visited, the club was promoting a regular club
with a "real" DJ. It got super crowded with normal club goers and it
looked like a rave, but most of the dancers stayed and kept doing chair
dances. I still saw some great action with one dancer and a female
customer, then another dancer doing some ass shakin' during many chair
dances. Couples flooded the place and some girls went up on stage and
started to take their clothes off. The bouncer had to stop this action
several times. Later in the evening, I saw Dennis Rodman come in, and was
seated by a club manager. His posse later went into the VIP room, then
All in all, although not the gigantic size of Olympic Gardens, it's
upscale with alcohol, and plenty of ladies to make anybody happy.

This club is owned by the owner of
Crazy Girls (Seventh Veil, etc) in Los
Angeles. The owner used to be a great fan of the Rio Hotel/Casino so I
would guess that's why he chose this location close to the Rio. When the
cab driver didn't know exactly where the club was, I knew that they don't
get a lot of customers at this club.
If this club opened in the 80's in Los Angeles, it would have been a
nice one. However, by today's standards, especially by Las Vegas
standards, this club is just your average run-of-the-mill club with no
There is a sign on the street but the actual club is not located on the
street but more inside the strip-mall. As you enter the club, there is a
long hallway that leads to a opening in the wall to pay your $20 cover
(bottomless drinks) and you turn left to enter the club. The stage is in
the center of the club but is hidden behind a partition. The guy that
takes your money is also the bartender. The DJ booth is all the way to the
far right of the stage and there are private lap areas to the left of the
club. The bathrooms are toward the front on the left and the women's
bathroom also doubles as the dressing room area.
There are several lap booths (similar to Deja Vu) behind the stage area
which are relatively private. There is a floater near that area who takes
the money if you are going into the VIP area room and theme rooms. The VIP
area room is a small separate room with seats for laps. If you are not in
the room by yourself, it's actually not as private as some of the booths
behind the stage. The theme rooms are interesting for people who like
fantasy laps and the little girl's bedroom looked interesting.
There were about 8 dancers in the club and 2 more came in to work while
I was there. Several dancers did pole work and danced more than I'm used
to seeing in Las Vegas at some of the more showgirl type clubs (read: OG).
One dancer was more interactive with the customers on stage than the
others but nothing crazy going on.
I did get some average laps in the VIP room but my perception is that
the mileage is not any better there than the booths.

Tiny club with only bar and bathroom on the first floor and micro stage
on second floor. All seats are lazyboy type chairs. Couch in the back of
the room and private room with couch for nice dances. The private room is
the way to go for hardcore lappers. Nude with no alcohol. The dancers use
a jukebox so lots of long dead times between songs. This used to be my
personal favorite in Vegas.
