Nothing quite says "Vegas, baby!" than the allure of visiting one of its many gentlemen's clubs with your guys (or gals, let's be honest).
From the famously infamous Vegas branch of Spearmint Rhino to the largest adult playground in the world, and everything in between, you're going to want to know your options for visiting Vegas' world-class strip club venues before your big trip.
Here's some things you might want to know when booking your strip club plans!
(Or just skip it and go straight to making a reservation on the button below!)
Contrary to popular belief, if you've never been to a gentlemen's club in Las Vegas before, most of the top strip clubs are TOPLESS ONLY, not fully nude.
That's not to say that fully nude clubs don't exist in Vegas: Little Darlings is an 18+ strip club that doesn't serve alcohol, and Palomino is the only 21+ fully nude strip club in the Vegas Valley that does serve alcohol.
Most of the best talent and the best venues (and the closest ones to the Strip) can be found working at the topless-only bars.
WALK-IN VS. MAKING A RESERVATION
Everybody walking into a strip club will have to pay a cover fee, even if you book a reservation.
However, if you showed up at the strip club without making a booking, you're paying about the same amount – or even more, since the club can charge whatever they want at the door – to enter the club as you would with one of our basic packages without any of the extra perks.
All of our packages include VIP transportation to pick you up from the hotel of your choice (the vehicle is provided by the club; unfortunately, you can't choose which kind), expedited entry on arrival, and in most cases, two free drinks per guest for what you would've paid just showing up on your own (and sometimes, even cheaper than what door cover is).
UBERS ARE A NO-NO!
If you made the right decision and made a reservation with us for the strip club, make sure you only use the vehicle we send from the venue to pick you up.
Rideshare and taxi drivers are all paid a referral fee or a "kickback" for bringing customers to the strip clubs. Because the club is now having to pay someone out for your business, the savings you would've gotten via the package you booked with us is now null and void.
All customers arriving in non-designated vehicles are treated as walk-in guests, and any extra perks are no longer available to you.
THE Las Vegas Strippers aka the DANCERS
Ahh…this is the part you've been waiting for. The lovely ladies that work the poles of Las Vegas are going to be some of the hottest, most exotic entertainers in the world – and they're here for you.
Typically, a lot of the best talent can be found at the most popular strip clubs – Rhino, Sapphire, Crazy Horse III, among a few others – as club managements typically only select the best girls to dance at their clubs.
Be warned: Any stripper that you meet at these clubs is a professional hustler – they are there to make their money, and they are going to say and do anything to part you from yours, and you're going to get a hell of a show while it's happening.
Every dancer has to pay a "house fee" to the club every night before she's even able to get on the floor, which means that all of them start off in the red – in short, they're going to be aggressively pushing themselves on you and your guys to try and turn those losses into gains.
Their business model is simple: while out on the main floor, they're going to try and lure you in with a $20 one-song lap dance, hoping to entice you just enough to make you want to take them back to the VIP rooms, where they can start charging all sorts of crazy numbers to their now-captive audience.
Here's what you should know: if you decide to take a girl back to the VIP room (it's really just a small booth with a curtain), prices are negotiable. Aside from the amount the club charges the girls to have someone inside those booths, she sets her own prices on what she wants to charge customers she brings back there – so you can definitely try and haggle!

Planning a bachelor party in Las Vegas? While planning your strip club jaunt is certainly a big item to have on the list, it's not the only thing to do in Vegas! For more information about bachelor party activities, check out our guide here.
EDITOR'S PICKS: TOP LAS VEGAS STRIP CLUBS
CRAZY HORSE III
Crazy Horse III takes our top spot for best strip clubs in Vegas, though one could make a case for any of the other venues. CH3 (as it is known locally) is the epitome of a premiere Vegas gentlemen's club – from its gaudy front entrance (that has a CH3-themed backdrop set up for guests to take pictures) and its secret VIP back entrance (for high rollers) to the high-end entertainers that take its stages nightly, Crazy Horse III will surely not disappoint.
The Las Vegas location of this popular gentlemen's club chain has been a noted hub for some of the hottest entertainers in Sin City for years and is one of the most sought-after strip clubs for visitors. Notorious for having strictly high standards for the girls they put on their floor, you can expect to fall in love with a stripper at Rhino. (Also, try their chicken fingers – thank me later!)
The World's Largest Strip Club certainly lives up to its name, housing not only its gentlemen's club but also a male strip club section for bachelorette parties plus a topless day club. Sapphire is (possibly) the most-requested venue on this list!
From the same company that brought you Hustler Magazine comes a scene that could be described as one of its iconic centerfolds brought to life. Perhaps the most visible gentlemen's club (located off the I-15S freeway) for visitors just getting into town, Hustler and its Honeys are waiting for you to meet them! Hustler Club is also home to one of the few after-hours parties in Vegas and has a male strip club section as well.
All class, Treasures Las Vegas brings a unique level of luxury to the gentlemen's club scene in Sin City. With a rousing roster of entertainers ready to cater to its guests' every need available each night, Treasures definitely earns its spot on this list as one of the strip clubs you need to check out on your next visit.
While the big topless bars grab all the attention right off the Vegas Strip, there is little debate as to who holds the crown as Las Vegas' best 21+ fully nude strip club. Palomino’s selection of entertainers + full nudity + booze = awesome.
Spacious and eye-catching, Centerfolds Cabaret is one of the most easily accessible gentlemen's clubs in the city, sitting right across the new Virgin Hotel & Casino (formerly the Hard Rock) just behind the middle of the Las Vegas Strip. Combined with its scintillating and sensual performers, Centerfolds Cabaret is the perfect mixture of convenience and quality.
Scores Las Vegas is a mid-sized gentlemen's club in the middle of the city with giant-sized value. With a plush, luxurious interior, a great-looking group of entertainers, and a top-notch hookah lounge on its premises, Scores is the perfect place to go – whether it's to get a lap dance or catch a game.
Sophia's is one of the newer additions to the gentlemen's club market in Vegas, brought to you by the same management team who brought Sin City the (now-closed) Olympic Gardens. This 17,000 square-foot adult playground is a smaller venue than many of its contemporaries but makes up for it with its talented entertainers available 24/7.
Little Darlings is possibly the city's most well-known 18+ fully nude strip club and continues to be a destination for locals and visitors alike. Featuring hundreds of entertainers and adult film star appearances throughout its lifetime, Little D's has been – and continues to be – the best 18+ strip club in Las Vegas.
A rebrand of the infamous Cheetah's Strip Club, The Library's newly-renovated interior promises a much more modern and luxurious gentleman's club experience than before.
Girl Collection TMT
Girl Collection doesn't try to reinvent the wheel with strip clubs and is best known as "Floyd Mayweather's Club." While that in and of itself may warrant the venue a visit, it definitely has garnered a very hit-or-miss reputation for guests.
Once upon a time, Déjà Vu carved out a strong niche for itself as Little Darling's biggest competitor in the 18+ market. Now a 21+ topless club, it is firmly in the middle tier of all Vegas strip clubs.
Talk of the Town
Speaking of Little D's competitors, Talk of the Town is another fully nude gentlemen's club that is 18+. As with all 18+ venues, there is no alcohol allowed or served at the venue.
Diamond Cabaret – Will be reopening as Eve’s Cabaret
Can Can Room – listed as closed (for now they may have lost their license)
Unfortunately, most strip clubs that only have female dancers aren't too friendly with all-female and bachelorette groups, and some won't even allow those groups in. Ladies can come watch the female dancers if they come with guys in their group. For example, if you are all coming from a nightclub after a night of dancing.
For our lady friends who want to enjoy the strip club ambiance, I recommend checking out our guides on Male Revues and Male Strip Clubs for our top recommendations.
