VIP Entry into the venue
Sophia's is one of the newer additions to the gentlemen's club market in Vegas, brought to you by the same management team that brought Sin City the (now-closed) Olympic Gardens.
This 17,000 square-foot adult playground is a smaller venue than some of its bigger contemporaries but makes up for it with its talented entertainers that are available at your beck-and-call.
In addition to the customary bar and bottle service offered by most strip clubs, food is also served here, and you can also order and smoke hookah at your table, making it a fun, laid-back place to relax and enjoy your stay.
While many people might prefer the bigger strip club joints right off the Strip, Sophia's Genlemen's Club is a nice alternative experience that is a treat for all (21+ patrons).
This is what you're here for. I've heard the hype, but what's the best deal to get in? Let's dive in!
Complimentary Transportation – Yes, it's FREE
Sophia's, like most strip clubs in Las Vegas, offers solid packages to incentivize customers to come in. This includes FREE TRANSPORT to the club for guests that book one of the packages. The club employs a large selection of luxury transport vehicles, from limousines, party buses, and more; unfortunately, you cannot pick which will come to get you, but hey – it's free.
Once you book your reservation, the venue 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 vehicles have their logo on the side and will contact you once they arrive to pick you up. Please note that it is customary to tip your driver, especially since the ride itself 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 something way off the Strip, schedule your ride after you see a show, or go to dinner near the Strip to be eligible for pickup.
It is imperative that you ONLY use the vehicle that Sophia's Gentlemen's Club sends in order to be eligible for their packages.
UBERS, LYFTS & Taxis: Why You Shouldn't Use Them
It only 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?
Well, 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.
Any guest who arrives in a taxi or rideshare vehicle is treated as a walk-in guest and is all required to pay the full cover charge with no free drinks.
What's the Cost of Entry for Sophia's?
There is a $50 entry fee for patrons arriving in rideshare, taxis, or in their own cars – though pricing may inflate due to demand, especially on holiday or big event weekends in Las Vegas.
What are drink prices like at Sophia's?
Sophia's has a reputation for higher-than-expected drink prices, so it's highly recommended to have a few cocktails before attending and then take advantage of the free drinks with our promo!
If you are looking to pre-game, I strongly recommend using some of our all-you-can-drink packages before going to maximize your experience.
Do you need to buy Bottle Service to get a dance?
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 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 having your own designated section, not to mention the amount of attention you draw from all the dancers from being in the VIP section.
Where's the catch at Sophia’s?
At this point, you're probably thinking to yourself, "This seems too easy. Where's the catch?" After all, we've already offered you free transportation and free entry on top of already entering with drinks in hand.
The catch is, once you enter the venue, it is now the dancers' goal to try and upsell you and get you to spend the most 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 very expensive thing, and I would recommend trying to remember that before you buy your first dance.

How much are dances at Sophia's?
Single song dances are $20 (industry standard), and private rooms generally run about $160 for 3-5 songs and includes 2 drinks, for a half-hour and $400 and that includes 2 drinks, and for a full hour $800 amd that includes 2 drinks. Keep in mind these prices are negotiable, if it’s a slower night, we are certain you can “cut a deal.”

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

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 with any table reservation – assorted juices and soda and garnishes like limes and lemons.
What is a "minimum"? Do I have to pay for a table separately from bottles?
Vegas nightclubs often operate on a minimum spend requirement (or "min," for short) system regarding their table reservations. The customer must either reach or exceed the amount set for their minimum spend. The table itself doesn't cost 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, etc., all count towards 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 generally are 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 making bottle service actually cost, after fees?" Let's break it down. Assuming you have a $1,500 minimum booked (and don't go over that total), here's how the bill would end up breaking down:
$125.63 (Nevada sales tax is 8.375%)
$300 (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.
*That total doesn't include any potential "handshake deal" you might want us to make with the club's host podium to secure express entry or preferred location (on extremely busy nights). A handshake is a tip in industry terms; basically, there are times when we can cut a deal and tip the host podium to give us preferential treatment, whether it's to hold a specific table or give you a table at a lower minimum than advertised. These deals are cut on a case-by-case basis; contact us on the button below, and we can advise you accordingly!
The girls walking around not in underwear are cocktail servers and bartenders. They are gorgeous, yes, but please do not ask them for a dance.
With a roster of dozens 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 perfect girl.
Also, just so you're aware: the girls pay the club a fee to dance at the venue, 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 & Big Games
Strip clubs are insanely popular whenever a sporting event occurs – like the Super Bowl, or a big boxing match, or even just Monday Night Football – and there will usually be a themed event at the club to match with special deals all around, and 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 those events typically sell out completely.
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 Dress Code?
Sophia’s has a very relaxed dress code– that is to say, there really isn't one – but general going out attire should be adhered to. The typical dress code in Vegas dictates no tank tops, no shorts, and no sandals – this especially applies to those who want to hit another venue afterward.
The Sophia’s Las Vegas Fire Truck!
Yes Sophia’s has it own fire truck and they have enough room in the cab to put a handful of strippers and drive around sin city trying to attract attention and lure gents. Now, we don’t know how well this marking ploy works, but you have to give then a “A” for creativity
Sophia’s Gentlemen’s Club Security
Before entry, all guests are required to turn out their pockets (for ladies, they will ask to look in 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; the dancers are allowed to do 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.
