Las Vegas Strip Club Hosting “Coronavirus-Free” Drive-Through Shows

The show must go on

Coronavirus-free lap dance, anyone?

Remember the drive-in movie theater? Well, Las Vegas strip joint Little Darlings wants to recreate that magic, except with more nudity and instead of everyone just being really jazzed about owning cars because it’s the ’50s, everyone’s really terrified of contracting a viral illness because it’s 2020 and a pandemic is sweeping the nation.

As Sin City strip clubs close in response to Nevada governor Steve Sisolak’s 30-day shutdown order to combat the spread of coronavirus, Little Darlings has turned to “drive-up window strip shows” in an attempt to keep dancers employed and customers entertained throughout the pandemic.

“Guests can drive up to the front door and we’re going to have dancers separated by the 6-foot separation rule and they can enjoy a totally nude show right from the seat of their car,” Ryan Carlson, director of operations for Little Darlings, told the Las Vegas Review Journal.

Beginning at 8 p.m. Saturday, customers can enjoy the 10-minute drive-up shows for $100.

Carlson seemed optimistic that the new approach to strip shows in the age of coronavirus would continue to attract the club’s usual volume of patronage. “As funny as it sounds, Little Darlings has been around for 30 years and we pretty much sell out almost every night of the week,” he told the outlet. “It probably won’t be any busier than normal because, as I said, we kind of reach capacity every night anyway.”

Little Darlings will also be hosting a drive-through “nude hand sanitizer wrestling” show on Saturday, which is probably pretty much what it sounds like. Earlier this month, the club also attracted attention for handing out free bottles of hand sanitizer to all customers.

“It might seem silly, but we take the health of our guests very seriously,” manager LeAnna DaPoint previously told the Las Vegas Review Journal. “Being the most popular adult club in Las Vegas, we have to ensure the show will go on.”

As coronavirus shutdowns nationwide continue to threaten the livelihoods of sex workers and nightlife industry employees, the club is still committed to making sure the show goes on. “America is a free country,” Carlson said in a statement to KLAS-TV, “and strippers will continue to be a part of the fabric of American life.”
