The Sapphire strip club, which bills itself as the largest in the world, has just announced plans for an adults-only pool, built next to the club on Industrial Road. It'll be a pool complex with cabanas and DJ, due to open this spring at an as yet-undisclosed date, according to a press release.
Expect club dancers to enhance the appeal of the $8 million Sapphire Pool & Day Club; however, the Las Vegas Advisor says that women who doff their bikini tops must wear pasties.
This is not the first time Sapphire has dipped its toe into Vegas' bubbly party-pool scene. The Sapphire Pool at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino drew dancers, and was a talked-about scene until it voluntarily closed in July 2009 after failing what was called a Las Vegas police "integrity check."
The Las Vegas Sun reported that nearly a dozen people were arrested in a drug and "prostitution-related" bust and published a photo gallery of some of the people arrested.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that Harrah's Entertainment, which owns the Rio, said at the time it had police check up on its clubs, pools and other attractions just to be sure there's nothing illegal going on.
