I'd like to draw your attention to Nick's new article Gay Nightlife 101. Nick worked very hard on it, going all over Vegas to do research on it. It took him months to complete it. I'd be interested to hear comments on it.

I noticed on the WoV homepage it lists the article posting date as 12/16/10 instead of 12/16/11

I'm guessing that this site is probably >98% male.

However, to be fair Nick, what about the lesbians?

Are they welcome at any or most of these clubs? Are there any men only or female only clubs?

I ask only because in my younger days(!), there was that distinction when we would go dancing at certain gay bars. They would specifically have men's night or ladies night, kinda like salsa night or 70's night.

I ask too because we have lots of lesbians here in NM and was just curious if you had noticed.
I don't know everything but I know a lot.

No mention of the Fun Hog Ranch. Did that one go back to being straight?

Krave has the following statement on it's website. Krave, a straight-friendly gay bar, fosters a diverse and inclusive atmosphere where all people can enjoy world-class nightlife, service and entertainment.

You should mention which places would be best to go if you have a mixed group of gays and straights.

I think most of these places probably try to echo a theme of "acceptance" and no longer emblazon a "Be Gay or Be Gone" sign anymore than the police post Raided Premises signs anymore.

For awhile Pink Triangles were posted at entrances to clubs in and around Long Beach, CA to alert straights to what the situation is likely to be inside.

A Smokers Welcome bar that had a Transgendered patron depart drunk and get killed was a mecca for all sorts of Gay, Bi, Transgendered, Swinger, Whatever types and when some political office-seeker moved his headquarters nearby it started getting a straight clientele during the day. The theme is often "acceptance" but I'd think its that young girls think the gay men are good-looking though mainly it may simply be that they are non-threatening.

As always, I think Las Vegas will rue the day they opted to chase after anything but Craps, Booze and Broads. Its supposed to be a gambling mecca, not nightclubs, not gourmet restaurants, not drunken yuppies buying bottles, not drunken yuppies in pools, not rock concerts. A place to run amok but not a place to run a marathon. Why should anyone trek out to the middle of the Mojave desert to go to a nightclub, there are nightclubs that are more conveniently located to just about any place.

Where should the people who live in Las Vegas go?
