Club Review

Formerly owned and run by Paul Perry until he passed away, the club is now run by his widow Gale Perry. As you step into this immense club, you can tell that Paul had a vision. After paying admission, you walk through a seperate set of doors into a long corridor. At the end of the hall, you can go either one of three ways. Straight to where the main stage is. Left and go up a flight of stairs to the Penthouse. Or make a right into an overflow room for private dances or bachelor parties. The main stage is very nice, with 2 poles; one at the end and one towards the back.

The main stage downstairs basically features the Palomino house feature dancers who do a burlesque style of show, actually stripping to a 3 or 4 song set. This is a nice break from the traditional floor shows at most other nude clubs. A dancer to note here at the feature stage is Frankie Bautista, a petite Puerto Rican brunette who had the crowd mesmerized. Pretty much every dancer that dances on the downstairs stage has some sort of list of credits to her name. There is also a nightly amateur contest as well.

After you've had your fill of the amazingly talented dancers, you can head upstairs and to the right to the Penthouse for some traditional strip club action. There is a stage/ring with tip rail and seating all around. The girls up at the Penthouse primarily consist of 5's to 7's with an occasional knockout. There's also another room upstairs to the left, but it seems like it's primarily used for overflow or private parties. It has a circular stage.

Onto the private dances. There are topless dances available for $20, and nude laps for $40. Ask the gal for a topless first. If she is persistant in pushing the nude laps, she might not be for you. Since the laps are in another room, it will be difficult to see the mileage until you try one for yourself, hence the topless dance test. I've seen some very nice things go on with several other dancers in the nude area, but they seemed to be tied up for quite a while. At $40 a pop, it isn't cheap, but the men getting the laps seemed to think it was worth every penny. This is the only place in Vegas where there are nude laps and alcohol at the same time.
