What’s the age for going to a strip club?

I am going to be hanging out in Vegas with some girls who are 20, but we all want to go to some strip clubs. Are there any strip clubs in Vegas that are for 18 and older?

The answer is: No... and yes.

While topless clubs in Las Vegas are exclusively for those 21 and older, oddly enough the fully nude clubs are 18+ (except, for one, The Palomino, which has an age limit of 21). The reason is that topless joints serve alcohol but the nude clubs aren't allowed to. The Palomino is a fully nude club that has been around so long it was grandfathered in under the various laws and is allowed to both have butt-ass nekkid dancers and sell booze. Not surprisingly, a man can go broke at the Palomino way faster than at the blackjack table.

I'll warn you that many of the nude clubs are not particularly classy places. (That's strictly a personal opinion, of course.) Dancers at the topless bars often make quite a bit more money than their counterparts at the fully bare joints -- because drunk dudes don't keep careful track of how much they spend -- so the very hottest women tend to work there. The nudie bar workers are often the stretch-mark-and-stomach-scar types. There are exceptions to this rule, of course... every so often.

I kind of hate to tell you this, but Vegas really isn't much of an under-21 town. There aren't many clubs the young girls will be able to get into and they won't be allowed to hang around the casino. You might be better off ditching the youngsters and running off with your legally aged friends. But if you decide to try one of the nude clubs, here's a list:

  • Babe's
  • Can-Can Room
  • Deja Vu
  • Diamond Cabaret
  • Little Darlings
  • Palomino (21 and over)
  • Pussycat Lounge
  • Sheri's Cabaret
  • Talk of the Town

If you decide to skip out on your underage friends and head to a regular ol' topless club, some of the current favorites in town are:

  • Cheetah's
  • Club Paradise
  • Crazy Horse III
  • Deja Vu
  • OG (often still called by its former full name, Olympic Garden
  • Rick's Cabaret
  • Sapphire
  • Spearmint Rhino

Check with a hotel concierge or cab driver for any recent openings or closings. These people are always in the know about this sort of thing.

    Get started on your Sheriff's Card by going to a club, telling them you're a dancer looking for work and need a referral slip for your card. After that you'll need to take the slip to the police department fingerprinting office.
