Gentlemen's clubs – or strip clubs – are the ultimate form of adult nightlife entertainment Las Vegas can offer, and Crazy Horse III – or CH3 as it is referred to in the industry – might be the best one in a very competitive strip club market.
(This venue is not to be confused by another Crazy Horse strip club in Vegas: Crazy Horse Too, aka "The Deuce" – which is now closed.)
CH3 is the epitome of a premiere Vegas Strip Club from its gaudy front entrance (with a CH3-themed backdrop set up for guests to take pictures) to 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.
Located just west of Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino, CH3 is not only one of the most accessible gentlemen's clubs in the city (for guests staying on the Strip), but also has one of the best layouts and some of the hottest girls working – making it our bid for the top strip club in the city.
Let's cut to the chase: here's what you need to know to set up your visit at Crazy Horse III.
Complimentary Transportation – Yes, It's FREE
Like most strip clubs in Las Vegas, CH3 offers solid packages to incentivize customers to come in. This includes FREE TRANSPORT to the club for guests that book any one of their packages.
Crazy Horse III employs a large fleet of luxury transport vehicles from limousines, Mercedes Sprinters, party buses, Tesla SUVs, and more.
Once you schedule your itinerary, the club will always call to confirm your scheduled ride. If you miss their call, you will need to call them back to confirm your pickup time and location. All strip club fleet vehicles have their logo on the side and will contact you once they arrive to pick you up.
Please note it is customary to tip your driver, especially since the ride is free.
Pro Tip: You can only schedule a pickup in the vicinity of the Las Vegas Strip, so take that into account when planning your evening. If you are staying at an Airbnb or at something way off the Strip, schedule your ride after you see a show, or go to dinner near the Strip to be eligible.
It is imperative that you ONLY use the vehicle that Crazy Horse III sends to be eligible for their packages.
It seems like common sense to request an Uber/Lyft to the strip club you've heard so much about, right? I mean, you've already booked with us, and the club knows you're coming. All good, right? Not exactly. Most strip clubs in the city have a payout program for Uber, Lyft, and taxi drivers, and when you arrive in a non-contracted vehicle, the club has to compensate the driver, which means that whatever savings you were going to get via the package is no longer on the table.
IMPORTANT: Any guest who arrives in a taxi or rideshare vehicle is treated as a walk-in guest and will be required to pay the full cover charge with no free drinks. Again, only use the vehicle that is sent to come get you!
How much are regular entry prices into CH3?
Regular entry prices (without booking a package) can get pretty expensive for unassuming guests without a reservation. General admission can range between $50-$100, depending on the night.
Fortunately, we offer our guests pretty great deals: all of our entry packages include a free ride to the club, 2 drinks voucher, and VIP entry into the venue for discounted rates.
How much do drinks cost at Crazy Horse?
If you thought drinks at the nightclubs were pricey, wait until you order a drink at a strip club. Expect somewhere in the vicinity of $15+ for a beer and $25+ for cocktails. Think of it as the venue charging a premium for the ambiance and the "scenery."
Do you need to buy bottle service to get dances?
Just like the nightclubs have a similar business model, you don't need to buy bottle service to have a good time at the venue, but it does elevate the experience.
All the seats in front of the main stage are free seating, and there is a designated number of tables for guests to sit and get dances at and order drinks from without bottle service reservations*.
*The advantage to booking bottle service at a strip club is the level of privacy of having your own designated section, not to mention the amount of attention you draw from all the dancers from being in the VIP section.
What's the Catch?
At this point, you're probably thinking to yourself, "This seems too easy. What's the catch?" After all, we've already offered you free transportation and free drinks on a reduced entry package.
The catch is, once you enter the venue, it is now the dancers' goal to try and upsell you and get you to spend a bunch of money. A typical one-song lap dance costs about $20, and from there, expect that they will try to get you to book a VIP Room with them ($100+ for about 3 songs). The phrase "falling in love with a stripper is a real and potentially a very expensive thing. I highly recommend trying to remember that before you buy your first dance.
Whether you just want the standard limo ride + entry and drinks package, or if you want to go the extra mile and reserve bottle service, we can accommodate whatever you're looking to do!
Pro Tip: In addition to the Main Room, which features all of the stages and majority of the entertainers, and the section of VIP rooms for private dances, CH3 also has a VIP back bar area reserved for high rollers. Some of the hottest entertainers only stay in that area, giving it a very exclusive vibe; it's definitely worth a visit next time you go and buy bottle service!
Frequently Asked Questions About Bottle Service
What exactly is table/bottle service?
By definition, bottle service means that the customer chooses to purchase their alcohol by the bottle and not individual drinks, which you would typically do at the bar.
In Vegas, this equates to paying a premium price for bottles but includes a table inside the club, a personal server for your section, security, and VIP entry into the venue. Basic mixers are also complimentary – assorted juices, soda, and garnishes like lemons and limes.
What is a "minimum" spend?
Vegas nightclubs and strip clubs often operate on a minimum spend requirement (or "min" for short) system regarding table reservations. The customer must reach or exceed the amount set for their minimum spend. The table itself doesn't incur a separate fee, but the better the location, the higher the minimum spend requirement.
To reach this minimum requirement, the customer can order anything from the beverage menu (bottled alcohol, cases of beer, bottled water, Red Bulls, food etc., all count toward your minimum requirement).
Group size could also be a factor in raising your minimum spend. The larger your group, the more accommodations the venue has to make to provide the same VIP experience to its customers. For example, a wedding party of 15-20 people will require a larger space and more staff service than the typical customer, and thus, their minimum would be much higher than a customer coming in with five people.
Significant events and time of year, such as national holidays (and Hallmark ones like Halloween), typically trigger larger events and performances in the city and drive more people to come to Las Vegas. Rates on these dates are generally higher due to the higher increase in demand. In other words, the same pricing on a random November weekend won't likely equate to the same price quote you might get on Memorial Day Weekend.
How much should you tip for bottle service?
What you're really asking is, "how much does bottle service actually cost after fees?" Let's break it down. Assuming you have a $500 minimum booked (and don't go over that total), here's how the bill would end up breaking down:
$41.88 (Nevada sales tax is 8.375%)
$100 (20% tip to the server)
Just like you would with any investment (e.g., buying a car), it's always best to assume that there may be more to pay than the sticker price.
We've included a handy tool below for you, or don't hesitate to contact us with any questions or recommendations.
No Vegas bachelor party is complete without a visit to the famous (or infamous) strip clubs, and we have the best packages available for Crazy Horse III. Feast your eyes on some of the hottest ladies in the city. Our goal is to make your "last hurrah" your best hurrah. Check out our bachelor packages below.
Bachelorette Parties & Male Strip Club
Crazy Horse III is one of the few strip clubs in Las Vegas that allow groups of all ladies to pay cover and enter (most strip clubs only allow male guests or ladies who come with males). You're more than welcome to purchase any of our entry packages and attend! Just to reiterate, this is an all-female dancer strip club!
Ideally, you want to have the whole group together when you walk to your table. However, we understand that sometimes life (or at least, Vegas party life) gets in the way.
Suppose your table has already entered and is sitting. In that case, the person joining you can go to the host at the table reservation line and give your table number (you can find out your table number by asking your server or security staff if you are unsure).
Please note that if you book a package for 10 people at the strip club and you have extra people joining, be sure to communicate that to us beforehand; they won't be able to drop your table reservation at the front, but we can possibly get them in for free and have them meet up with you once inside. We will send a ride from the strip club to pick them up.
Can I order a bottle presentation at CH3?
If you order bottle service, your server will let management know, and especially if you order champagne, you can expect a bottle presentation of some kind. This is a great experience for you and your group; expect to grab the attention of the entire room and every dancer in the place during the presentation.
If this is something you want to happen, just let us know, and we will be happy to communicate that to your server.
Does Crazy Horse III Serve Food?
Yes, CH3 has a pretty good food menu, they used to serve some bomb sushi, but that has past, now I recommend the meatball sandwich or the pizza that is as “hot and fresh” as the girls

We offer ultra-reliable service, insider information, and always the best price. We can offer better bottle packages and get better table locations than merely making a reservation online.

The girls walking around in corsets are cocktail servers and bartenders. They are gorgeous, yes, but please, do not ask them for a dance.
Las Vegas Strippers at CH3
With a roster of a hundred or so of some of the most beautiful Vegas girls you will ever see at any given time; you can be sure that you will be able to find someone that piques your interest and can make your whole night. Just make sure you bring some cash to get a dance from your ideal girl.
Also, just so you are aware: the girls pay the club a fee to dance at the venue; it's called a "house fee." This means that the girls are already in the hole before they even start their shift, and whenever they talk to you, that takes time – and time is money. Expect to tip or buy a dance if you want to get a girl's attention.
Sporting Events at Crazy Horse
Strip clubs are insanely popular whenever a sporting event occurs – like the Super Bowl, a big boxing match, or Monday Night Football – and there will usually be a themed event at the club to match with special deals all around. Oftentimes there's even a delicious buffet for guests.
For the big events – like the Super Bowl – make sure you have a reservation and come early because these events typically sell out.
Strip Club ATMs
Strip clubs usually have their own ATMs inside the venue (these ladies only take cash, fellas), but I highly suggest stopping at one before coming because the fees are ridiculous. Expect as much as $20 to make a withdrawal at one of these ATMs!
What is the Crazy Horse III Dress Code?
While not quite as strict as the nightclubs on the Strip, even strip clubs have a basic dress code that all of their guests must adhere to. This helps the club's management maintain the right aesthetic with their customers and ensures they are letting in the right type of guests.
The dress code required is pretty simple (and really only applies to male customers):
No open-toed shoes (including sandals)
No tank tops or sleeveless shirts
No white t-shirts
No jerseys, shorts, or sweatpants, or other athletic/athleisure wear
No bandanas, beanies, or do-rags
It's always a good idea to dress up for a night out in Vegas, especially if you plan to hit a strip club. It seems like common sense but easy to forget when you're on vacation.
Strip Club Security
Before entry, all guests are required to turn out their pockets (for ladies, they will search your purse) and submit to a metal detector test to make sure everyone entering is not bringing in anything dangerous – it's almost like going through the TSA line at the airport. This applies to all guests, whether you're going in with a table or general admission.
It is important to note that while the security staff is there to help make your experience great, they're also there to protect the girls from unwanted advances.
Please do not touch the dancers. They are allowed to touch you when they're giving you a dance, but security will give you a warning if you're touching the girls inappropriately.
Pro Tip: If you purchased a table and some unwanted people wander in on accident, it is always best to have the security staff ask them to leave instead of doing it yourself to avoid potential altercations. In the event of a confrontation between guests, it is very likely that both parties may be asked to leave, and security has the final say on such matters.
