With many businesses in the Las Vegas economy having to rapidly reinvent and transform themselves just to stay afloat, Las Vegas Backstage Access thought you’d enjoy a quick staffing operations recap on booze and boob joints in Sin City.
For Las Vegas adult strip clubs the general rule is that for 18-and-over clubs you can see the barely-legal dancers completely in the buff, but – always a catch – they can’t serve you alcohol.
Now, if you want to drink alcoholic beverages, you’ll have to hit up a 21-and-over Las Vegas club for a lap dance and a cocktail; the dancers there are of legal drinking age as well. (The rare exception to the rule is the Palomino where—through a supposed deal Frank Sinatra made back in the Mob day—the club has 18-and-over fully nude dancers and serves alcohol.)
On the other paw, Déjà Vu Showgirls, has just made the switch from completely nekked and dry to 21-and-over, topless, and offering a full bar. And, to celebrate the change in these tough times, Déjà Vu marketing and promotions director Larry Beard says, “We will have free draught beer for a short time to promote the change to alcohol.”
While there was no official reason for the switch, according to Beard, if you still really want to see dancers completely in the buff, you can still do so at their sister property, Little Darlings.
Embodying Las Vegas craziness, decadence and adult strip club allure, the new Playboy TV reality show King of Clubs is filmed in Las Vegas at the legendary Palomino Club, the venue’s second foray into adult TV (the first being the humorous lap top dance/quiz program Show Us Your Wits.)
The show follows the Gentile family as they take over the only strip joint in town with a full-nude license and a full bar, plus dancers who are as young as 18. But this show is not just merely a half-hour’s worth of lap dances and nudity on the small screen.
King of Clubs premiered on September 25, and though sexuality is a strong component of each episode, it’s easy for the viewer to become wrapped up in the stories of the individuals involved in the night-to-night operations of the Palomino Club.
The family running the club presents an interesting dynamic, but also that the show reveals that strippers aren’t as dumb as tacks, the prevailing stereotype.
If you don’t subscribe to Playboy TV, no sweat. Las Vegas locals and military are always free at the Palomino Club and they’re considering adding the channel to their cable package just to get the show.
And even if you aren’t intrigued by the business side of King of Clubs, there’s plenty of titillating content. One upcoming episode, for example, features “Design a Vagina” night, complete with a naked backstage cat fight.
Playboy’s May edition will include Las Vegas native Alicia Taylor,37, in their “Women of Wall Street” spread on page 40, curled up next to an Investor’s Business Daily and a pillow.
The Rancho High School homecoming queen and UNLV business management graduate is also in the running for the new Bravo TV series, “Real Housewives of Las Vegas.”
Taylor, a self-made multimillionarie, married her high school sweetheart and has worked in the lending and finance industry for almost 20 years, founding Mortgage Solutions LLC in 2004.
