Usually, when a strip club rents out a space in its building to a third party, the tenant is often... how do we put this nicely? Unsavory. Even if that space is a dining establishment, one would expect it to be a fried food or pizza spot. But, what if -- and stay with us here -- what if it is a good restaurant? With good food? Maybe even a zealous dedication to non-GMO sourcing? Perhaps a Mexican place?
New-ish El Dorado Cantina shares a building with the strip club, Sapphire. Luckily for most (and sadly for a few, we suppose), the spaces are entirely separate. Other than the fact you can see a marquee that says "Sapphire" from the parking lot, you wouldn't know that just feet away through soundproofed walls, there is a strip club. At certain times of the day (the restaurant is operational 24/7), you can even see families and couples coming in for a nice dinner. While not on the top of our family friendly dining list, we suppose it's certainly an option!

If you’re coming to Las Vegas for a bachelor party, chances are you’ve already got your evening plans set. Assuming you actually wake up during the daylight hours, what is a group of guys to do? This was the question posed by VegasChatter Twitter follower @sahilsharmauk.
For one, many strip clubs are open 24 hours so that doesn’t necessarily have to be relegated to the evening hours. If you want to get the strip club affect and still get your vitamin D, Sapphire Pool, the new(ish) dayclub of the famous gentlemen’s club, opens for the season May 2.
Glitter Gulch is, of course, the famous nickname coined for the the conglomerate of Fremont Street casinos. The Girls of Glitter Gulch is the downtown strip club that has forced its ta-tas into many a Fremont photo, whether intended or not. ("I was admiring the Goose, I swear!")
We've often wandered past the GoGG, but admittedly never been tempted to step inside by the real-life
toothless strippers advertising their goods outside the entrance. The show we got when one barely bikini'd senior citizen employee took her break by popping a squat on Fremont before shooting firing up... cigarettes... we'll assume they were cigarettes.... was enough of a peek behind the curtain for us.
Gambling in Las Vegas isn't confined to your favorite casino. You can play video poker just about anywhere. It's kind of surreal the first time you walk into a gas station and see a line of people playing video poker.
At first, it seems cool, but then you wonder if these people just cashed their check at the gas station (because you can do that, too) and went straight to the video poker machine. At that point, a feeling of sadness creeps in as you see them jump for joy when they get a royal flush. At least that's how it was for this writer.
We're not too proud to admit that we enjoy the occasional trip to a strip club. Recently, we found it interesting that there are only two strip clubs in tourist areas of Las Vegas that offer video poker and naked ladies.

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.
Shuffling through the Caesars Palace parking garage recently we came across this rather well-dressed beaver. At least, we think that's a beaver. Proving once and for all that you can take the beaver out of the strip club, but it's best to leave it outside the casino.

We're not quite sure when a visits to the club got this complicated, but now you can pre-plan your trip to see gals strip.
Crazy Horse III recently revealed eight VIP packages for the strip club-goer who doesn't want to think about anything other than being in the lap of luxury. Or, errr.. having someone in their lap.
For all you white collar workers fresh off the clock, there's a Professional Package which gives you a ride -- no, an actual ride.. in a car -- as well as free entry, "premium" seating and a $40 drink card for $55 bucks. Looking to belly up to the bar and stay awhile? Check out the Open Bar Package which give you unlimited booze for two hours, a free ride and, once again, "premium" seating. (Can anyone tell us what that means?)

We told you about our first time...visiting Vegas, that is. And you’ve told us about yours. Now it's time for another VegasChatter member, EastCoastGambler, to tell you about busting his Vegas cherry.
My Vegas Virgin story began what has turned into an annual tradition for my friends and I (even as I live in Vegas). The week before Christmas is one of the least crowded weeks of the year in Las Vegas, something I first learned from a blackjack dealer at MGM Grand. The great thing is Vegas is never quiet, so there was still a lot going on. This is when we decided to take our first trip and have every year since. (Hotel rates are super cheap this time of year, too.)
One of the strange, yet interesting, things going on was the cheerleading competition that still goes on. Even though the images of cheerleaders running around a casino for days is the kind of plot Cinemax late night movies are made of I get a little weirded out by Toddlers and Tiaras type children. I don't even find that curious for people watching. It's the only thing that mars the memory of an amazing trip.
Now this is more like the Halloween activity we expect from Vegas – costumes, prizes and almost certainly guaranteed nudity. Shame we had to wait for a strip club to do it, but whatever. Hurrah for the Crazy Horse III!
The strip club is giving away $10,000 this Halloween weekend and splitting it into two fancy dress prizes: sexiest costume and Jersey Shore costume.
The Sexiest Costume Contest takes place Saturday October 30 under the watchful eye of pornstars Mya Luanna and Lux Kassidy. The three ladies (sorry gents) who come dressed (or rather undressed) in their sexiest kegs will split $5k between them. Not one of the three sexiest ladies in Vegas? Don’t worry, if you’re local, you’ll still get an open bar from 9-11pm.
And if you’re more trashy than sexy, you should probably pop by on the Friday night for the club’s Jersey Shore Costume Contest. It’s hosted by the “original Las Vegas guido” Gino LoPinto (we assume this is him, in which case he looks amazing) and the most guidoey or guidetty looking unfortunate will get $5k in cash and prizes.
Not many things make us chuckle on a Monday morning, but this picture does – it’s what we snapped driving up Industrial Road towards Charleston on Friday (no, we weren’t looking for a strip club, FYI, we just happened to be driving by them).
Coins once accepted by slot machines at Larry's Villa.
Sometimes it’s best to keep happy hour simple – tits, ass and a cheap beer. When multi-tasking locals want topless dancers
Make no mistake about it; Larry’s is definitely a dive bar. Its slogan pretty much says it all, “Girls, gambling and booze since 1972”. But, Larry’s has improved its dumpy image with an upgrade in eye-candy, new plasma TVs, a bumpin’ sound system, new décor, new bathrooms and a fancy new draft beer system.

Be proud, Vegas: your little darlin' has grown up good and proper, and now it’s about to fly the nest.
That’s right – the Stripper Mobile, which took the news bulletins by storm when it launched (and was quickly closed down) in November has captured the spirit of the nation. So much so that it’s going on national tour.
According to the Las Vegas Sun, TSM will tour all 15 states in which Déjà Vu –the club whose brainchild it was - owns strip clubs. Marketing man Larry Beard says its journey will be filmed with a view to broadcasting it on cable. Naturally, the girls will stop the grinding to pose by national monuments such as Mount Rushmore.
TSM is slated to leave Vegas on January 10, and weave its way around southern California, before going up to Oregon, where lax decency laws mean they can dance in the nuddy. Then they’ll hit Seattle, drive across the Midwest to New York down to Kentucky, Tennessee and Louisiana, before returning to the Strip after spending Mardi Gras in New Orleans.
Let’s reflect on this for a second: the same Stripper Mobile that was taken off the road because it was deemed too lewd for Vegas is going to ply its wares Minnesota, Ohio, Michigan and Kentucky.
One word. Amazing.
