Sapphire Las Vegas Celebrated 14 Years with a Cowboy Themed Heck of a Party
Sapphire, the world's largest strip club (more than 70,000 square feet), celebrated its 14th Anniversary on December 8 with a party that was a hoot and a holler and a lot more besides. It was Rodeo Week in Las Vegas. If you didn't know it before, you found out fast as one of the lovely ladies near the entrance handed you your complimentary cowboy hat to help get you in the mood.
And the cowboys were there, enjoying the band, Guitars and Cadillacs. A two hour hosted complimentary open bar and a extensive buffet added to the vibe as guests did some dancing and had a chance to see and hear hilarious comedian Vinnie Favorito who appears at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino.
The theme was “Beauties and Bandits”. Easy to tell which was which. There were lots of Sapphire ladies there, as well as many women who come to enjoy the fast paced festivities and maybe to meet those cowboys... There certainly was plenty of mix and mingle throughout the evening which lasted far into the night at this 24/7 facility.
The food was fab. Sapphire Grill served up roasted artichokes, pulled pork and other western foods such as cornbread. El Dorado Cantina supplied their Chili Verdi and other heathy Mexican delicacies. Zenshin Asian Cuisine served up sushi and other Asian food. Fat Bar and Sysco also contributed to the eats and drinks.
Of course, patrons needed beverages to wash down the huge amount of food and the Sapphire happily provided the same. Jack Daniels and Coors Light are the club's major liquor partners throughout the two weeks of rodeo in Las Vegas. Patron, Baccardi and Jagemeister had booths providing ice cold shots. If you could not find your favorite brand at a booth, you only had to go to one of the numerous bars for a drink. Yes you could get a non-alcoholic beverage as well. Adding to the fun was a bull riding contest and some special prize give aways. Oh, and yes, some of the Sapphire girls performed on the main stage.
I've been to Sapphire many times for various events including special celebrations and comedy nights. I've always found it to be one of the friendliest places with high standards and good business practices. It is a Vegas classic in its category. Check out their upcoming events including aSuper Sunday Viewing Party and their annual charity Poker Tournament. Sapphire is a great fun place to go for partying of all sorts.
