When in Sin City, there’s no better place to take a walk on the wild side than Cheetahs Gentlemen’s Club.

In business for more than two decades, Cheetahs is a throwback to Old Las Vegas as the dancers cast their sensuous spells under bright purple, pink and blue neon lights. If you feel a tinge of déjà vu when you walk through the doors, it may just be because the club just happened to star in the 1995 quintessential stripper film “Showgirls.” Now you know.

Cheetahs has always been a favorite with the locals but it’s location on Western Ave just west of the Strip makes it just as popular with tourists, so you’re likely to find a good mix of both on any given night.

The club claims to put 500 girls on stage during a single 24-hour period during the weekends. That may seem a bit extreme but the venue does have multiple stages and 10 (!) stripper poles, so it could be true. Besides, who can count that high anyway with so many gorgeous women grinding to the beats? Even if it’s a fraction of the advertised 500, it’s a lot, so you’re bound to see something that will get your motor running.

When you do find that special someone, go ahead and order up a lap dance or two. Pay regular price for entertainment on the main floor or up the ante a bit to join your girl of choice in the mirrored G-spot room for a more private encounter.

The manager of Cheetah’s is none other than former WWF superstar wrestler The Godfather. Every Friday and Saturday night, the Godfather is available for a meet and greet with his guests. Though how he manages to attract their attention away from the bare breasts and booty shaking is honestly beyond our comprehension.

Happy Hour rarely ends with drink specials available daily from 7 am to 8 pm along with free wings and pizza every day from noon to 5 pm. In other words, just get there before dark to get the most for your stripper entertainment dollars.

Other Las Vegas strip clubs may be bigger and more modern but Cheetahs is the best option for anyone who craves topless entertainment with a heaping helping of vintage Vegas vibe.
