Reno tends to get overshadowed by a certain other hardpartying Nevada City, but the newest Penthouse Club is putting “The Biggest Little City in the World” front and center.
THE PENTHOUSE CLUB RENO is located a few miles east of the bustling casinos and hotels on the main drag of Virginia Street, but it’s practically a small city in its own right: At 10,000 square feet, it’s the largest gentlemen’s club in the Reno-Tahoe area. And when you see the top-notch talent, five-star service, and luxurious amenities, you might find it hard to believe you’re in low-key Reno.
At the club’s two-day grand opening event in April, four gorgeous and very special guests helped to make the festivities unforgettable: 2011 Pet of the Year Nikki Benz, 2010 Pet of the Year Taylor Vixen, December 2010 Pet of the Month Sabrina Maree, and February 2010 Pet of the Month Heidi Baron. In the days leading up to the club’s launch, the ladies made the rounds of local radio stations to spread the word. Then, when the doors opened, the Pets were on hand for the VIP party on Friday and the public kickoff on Saturday, which included a meet-and-greet session where they posed for photos with lucky patrons. The ladies also took the opportunity to enjoy everything the club had to offer—especially the sexy Key Girls. “The girls were hot!” Nikki raves. “I couldn’t decide which one was my favorite—they were all my favorite. I was tipping the dancers like I was a customer!”
The Key Girls can be found on the club’s three stages, although the main stage is also used for burlesque performances and bachelor shows. When you’re in the mood for a more private party, the club features Key Suites, Key Rooms, and a Key Lounge. And if you want to party like a high roller—or just need a deca dent way to spend your winnings from Reno’s roulette tables—take the elevator to the Penthouse Suite and enjoy its VIP bar, glass stage, and skyboxes overlooking the main room. Nikki has danced in clubs across the country, so she knows how you can make the most out of your visit to the Penthouse Club. Her recommendation? “You have to get a bottle of champagne and get a girl to dance for you. Get your own private booth, have fun, and let your hair down. I mean, Goddamn, I wish I was a guy!”
If you manage to tear your eyes away from the frisky females, you’ll find a tech geek’s paradise: The sky boxes feature interactive videogames, so you can put the smackdown on the bachelor party in the next box. Or enjoy your favorite sports on a 15-foot screen or 85-inch plasma, enhanced by the state-of-the-art sound system. No need to leave for lunch or dinner, either, since the club offers five-star entrees, tasty tapas, an impressive wine list, and even a selection of cigars. “Everyone should check out the Penthouse Club Reno, if not for the girls, then for the food,” Nikki says. “Seriously, the girls are beautiful, the club is amazing, the food is great, and the staff is friendly. That’s what I’m looking for in a club.”
In other words, watch your back, Vegas—there’s another party paradise in the Silver State.
