Las Vegas is famous for blurring the lines separating concepts and there's no better example of that than Club Paradise. A gentleman's club that at first glance comes across as a nightclub, Club Paradise straddles both concepts flawlessly.
The club (which sits across from the Hard Rock Hotel and is easily one of the most conveniently located gentleman's clubs in town) is swanky and upscale, without being off-putting.
The main showroom is decked out like any high-end nightclub on the Las Vegas Strip, with maybe just a few more dance poles. There are dark, rich colors and plush seating that looks more comfortable than intimidating (and trust us when we say seating in other clubs is sometimes a little questionable).
The main stage (inside the main showroom) is well-positioned -- meaning easy to see from just about anywhere in the club -- and frequently utilized by some of the sexiest dancers in town, but we'll get back to that in a second.
To the side of the main room, there's a bar (and another bar in the VIP Room) and although you might not be on the lookout for bargains during your crazy Vegas nights, it's still worth noting that Club Paradise occasionally runs special events and drink deals (like a nightclub would) that help your dollars go further (the ones you're not handing over to the ladies, we mean).
In addition to the nightclub look of Club Paradise, there's also a nightclub sound -- DJ-spun music is less choppy cuts from the '80s and more about flow.
So, décor, music, what else is there? OK, all right, here's the rundown on the dancers: they're some of most talented and attractive in the entire city. Dances are intricate and performed with skill and, combined with the atmosphere, there's an air of class to the entire experience that's lacking in most other clubs.
When not dancing on the stage, the ladies mingle with the crowd, offering dances, but also conversations -- and we're not talking pushy, one-sided ones.
Because Club Paradise is at the top of the list when it comes to gentleman's clubs in Sin City, be advised that lowbrow behavior probably isn't going to be tolerated for very long. This is a nice place and, well, you should be nice, too.
