Vegas Is Getting Its Stripper Pool

OMG, you guys. Guess what we saw when we drove behind Circus Circus over the weekend?

A sign and construction for Sapphire Pool. Yes, we're really getting our stripper pool, after all. Government officials first approved the idea back in November of 2011, but an expected opening of May 2012 came and went leaving us to wonder if plans were sunk.

The At-Work Nooner: Reading Yelp Strip Club Reviews

September 25, 2012 at 7:55 PM | by | ()

Remember NYE 2009? That was crazy.

Don't you hate it when a work-related search of the Internet at your desk always seems to pop-up an unfortunate ad just at the moment the boss walks by? You're diligently looking for a a fancier template to report those financials and another browser starts flashing letting you know that Pumpkin is in your town and is ready to chat now. Don't ask us how "hottest spreadsheet" results in anything but. That's sort of not at all how we stumbled onto Yelp reviews of Vegas strip clubs.

A lot of folks in Vegas frequent gentlemen's clubs and, thankfully, a good many of them like to write about their experience -- for the good of gentlemankind. Some even document their visits digitally and we thank them for their thoroughness.

BTW, Where's Our Stripper Pool?

May 18, 2012 at 12:35 AM | by | ()

First, we're to be denied Bagatelle this May and, now, must we be denied our stripper pool, too?

We just happened to flashback to November of last year when the Las Vegas Sun told us that Sapphire Gentlemen's Club was building its own pool after an attempt to partner up with the Rio went bust. (Literally.)

Will A Million Bucks Get You To The Riviera On Time?

Best use of the pick and roll ever.

A million bucks must be the magic number to grab the attention of Vegas gamblers, players, and sports fanatics these days. Yesterday we highlighted a million dollar money shot and a million dollar bonus win at Three Card Poker. Now, the Riviera is going mad this March with a million dollar contest of their own.

The March $1,000,000 Tournament Challenge will pair college basketball fanatics with college party fanatics. The challenge features 100% payback of up to a thousand entries at $1,000 a pop. For those whose mathematical brain cells are more long gone than their college days, one thousand entries times a thousand bucks calculators out to a million dollars.

If They Erect It Will You Come?

Sapphire wants to get you wet again.

When at first you don't succeed, build your own.

Sapphire Gentleman's Club tried to jump into the Vegas pool scene a few years back by keeping the ladies of the night poolside at the Rio as glistening advertisements of what awaited guests up in the club. Well, that didn't go well to put it mildly. But, Sapphire hasn't given up the dream of keeping things drenched. Now, it wants to build its own pool. And, Vegas is totes ok with that. At least, for now, as reported by the Las Vegas Sun:

Perhaps The Rio's Sapphire Pool Should Have Done Without The Stripper Pole

Where: 3700 W. Flamingo Rd [map], 89109
July 28, 2009 at 6:36 PM | by | ()

When The Rio's Sapphire Pool debuted this summer, we called it "stripper-friendly." That's because the pool was set up in partnership with one the Las Vegas's strip clubs, Sapphire. Oh, and because it had stripper poles on site.

But that may not have been such a good thing. After a few arrests for prostitution at the pool shut it down for a few days, The Rio has since ended all topless sunbathing for the rest of the season. The Daily Fiasco writes:

Though the Rioís pool area remains open, whatís unclear is the future of the relationship between the casino and the gentlemanís club of the same name. It was an internal decision to strip away topless sunbathing, and itís hard to imagine why the two entities would continue to do business without it. (Yeah, yeah, we know. We couldnít resist the puns.)

Indeed, this just might be the tip of the iceberg for both Vegas' party pools and its nightclubs. With Prive officially closed down now after some serious violations of their liquor license, all clubs are under scrutiny in town. Sin City's own all-knowing wizard, Robin Dumbledore Leach, has whispered (through his blog, of course) that a few more party pools and clubs could be shuttered as city official cramp down on the nightlife.

While the recent closings are a major bummer for Las Vegas, what would be worse is having more places close down left and right. So if you're running a club in Vegas somewhere, make sure you've got everything up to code, now.

Get Your Vitamin D Fix This Weekend at The Rio's Pools

Where: 3700 W. Flamingo Road [map], 89103
June 26, 2009 at 8:02 PM | by | ()

Although its location isnít in the thick of the Strip action, weíve always had a soft spot for Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. Especially this summer, when the waterfront scene Ė both beach and pool Ė has been hopping.

Sun worshippers have two options for getting wet and wild. Hotel guests and locals can get horizontal at VooDoo Beach, a faux sandy beach that surrounds a lagoon with waterfalls and Jacuzzis. Itís open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and access is free. Thereís also a deck with lounge chairs, poolside cabanas for rent and a snack bar.

Once a month, VooDoo Beach hosts a free poolside concert for its 18+ guests. Upcoming acts include Nine Days, The Ataris, Presidents of the United States and Marcyís Playground. The vibe is more relaxed (read: more family-oriented) than some of the Strip pool scenes and pretentiousness is kept to a minimum.

If you simply want sun and a fun afternoon scene, but donít want to throw down a lot of green, we recommend VooDoo Beach.

The Men of Sapphire Promise 'Gerard Butler's Body'

Where: 3025 Industrial Rd. [map], 89109

Sapphire may be Sin City's biggest gentlemen's club but that doesn't mean the ladies can't have a little fun themselves. The Men of Sapphire perform every Friday and Saturday from 10pm to 2am, largely for the bachelorette crowds. And this is what they promise:

This is your last chance to have what you really want: an evening with a roomful of incredibly hot guys with bodies like Gerard Butler in "300" who are there exclusively to pleasure you.

The "pleasuring" consists of typical male revue tricks with the men stripping off their long coats to reveal costumed fantasies such as fireman, cowboys and soldiers. A few lucky ladies who get pulled on stage will also be "treated" to some scandalous personal attention.

Tickets to the show start at $40 per person but the VIP package, "We're Bringing Sexy Back", promises a two-hour open bar, a VIP reserved front-row table, the chance for the bachelorette on stage and complimentary limo/party bus transportation from your hotel. But you better get those singles ready beforehand as gratuities are not included. Besides, half of the fun is when you tip the men yourselves.

The Sapphire Pool at The Rio is Stripper-Friendly

Where: 3700 W. Flamingo Rd [map], 89109

Itís not hard to catch a stripper outside her natural habitat in Vegas. After all, itís a legitimate and fruitful career in Sin City, so the place is chock-full of them. Catching them outside the strip club, topless, thatís another ballgame.

But The Rio has made that easier for everyone. The Sapphire Pool, a Brazilian-style adult pool experience, was created in partnership with the new gentlemen's club in town, Sapphire club. So essentially, the Rio has combined a strip club with a pool. And Sapphire strippers drink for free here.
