If ever there were a strip club that broke the strip club mold, Rick's would be it. Maybe the world has seen one too many movies or maybe we're all just buying into a slightly negative view for reasons unknown, but most people wouldn't say "class" is the first thing to spring to mind when contemplating gentlemen's clubs.
Now, no one's saying "class" is on everybody's lips first at Rick's either. Sex appeal, attractive women, dancing, those all come first, but class is on there.
See, while Rick's is a strip club, it seems like they fancy their image just a little beyond that. So elements of other Vegas faves - nightclubs, upscale bars, tasty eating establishments - are also given their due at Rick's.
The actual space is massive (something you'll notice as you pull up to the venue - it almost looks like a palace of everything good in the world, or so our most enthusiastic male friends tell us), but it's laid out in a way that isn't overwhelming in the slightest. The main room, with bars scattered for convenience throughout, has seating that goes beyond serviceable and is full of lighting accents that seem more upscale than they do in even some restaurants.
Wait, wait, did we just mention lighting accents? Sorry, that's not what we want to focus on and not what you'll end up focusing on, trust us.
The dancers. Ah, there it is. You've got to figure that a place that decorates its space with dark wood and strategically-placed televisions (and those fancy lighting accents) is not about to scrimp on the dancers. And Rick's doesn't. The women are pretty much universally attractive, with small traits that might make one stand out more than the others to you. If you find your dancer, you can rest assured that all this class is not forgotten in VIP rooms either.
Rick's has a few other things you might not expect - but will definitely come to appreciate. They've got stuff like a food menu put together by an actual chef, not the frozen food factory in Medina, Ohio. They host a lot of special events and parties and cater well to you, should you be in the market to throw your own party (bachelor or otherwise).
Basically, what it boils down to is, yes, Rick's is a strip club, a gentlemen's club, but Rick's is a lot more than that. Just like you're looking for a lot more out of your night than just seeing some ladies. So, really, you and Rick's go hand in hand.
