It is a crime in Nevada for people to expose themselves or others in an indecent or obscene manner. According to the Nevada Supreme Court, this includes exposing a person's genitals or anus. In practice, Nevada police also arrest women for going topless and arresting men or women for mooning. The laws are a little confusing in Las Vegas when it comes to going topless.
While public nudity and indecency laws are still in place throughout the city, there are certain areas where exceptions are made. For example, at adult-only pools such as Sapphire, Bare at The Mirage and The Artisan Hotel. The M Resort is located 10 miles south of the Strip, in the suburbs of Henderson, making it a destination for locals. DayDream is the pool of choice for Las Vegas residents, and they always know the best places to relax and have fun without breaking the bank.
Topless pools are small, but Naked Pool is even smaller than other European pools, giving it a more intimate feel. Naked Pool is a good option if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the Strip. Like Marquee Dayclub, Tao Beach is mostly a pool party (on weekends), but it turns into a European pool from Monday to Wednesday. In recent years, Las Vegas has gone crazy; today, there are at least a dozen pools that offer topless baths.
Deja Vu dancers Showgirls and Little Darlings compare shoe heights while inside a truck to announce clubs on the Las Vegas Strip late on Monday night, Nov. Often characterized as a playground for adults, Las Vegas has a reputation as a destination for bachelor and bachelorette parties, and other libertine getaways. Adam Solinger, lawyer for Las Vegas Defense Group, said one reason for this ordinance change could have been because completely naked clubs and alcohol “invited a lot of trouble. When it comes to topless casino shows and erotic magazines, there are age restrictions for performers, crew and the public, depending on the availability of alcoholic beverages on site.
There is a belief that the city is a place to “come and go crazy,” said Las Vegas criminal defense attorney Michael Pariente. Strip clubs, once called gentlemen's clubs, quickly made their way to Las Vegas when it was still a border town. Casinos located outside the city limits of Las Vegas have different, and generally stricter regulations. Alcoholic beverages cannot be served in a Las Vegas room where female genitalia are on display; however, if you are going north of Las Vegas, Palomino Club and Lacy's Lounge have full nude shows and full bar service.
Topless shows may allow attendance by guests under 21 years of age if the show is held in a theater without beverage service during the show, but topless shows cannot allow minors (under 1 year old) to attend. These days, M Resort, also in Henderson, is circumventing this regulation in its premises and at the party-oriented Daydream Pool Club by allowing women to be topless, provided they wear patties (available at no additional charge by pool staff). When Green Valley Ranch in Henderson announced that its small adult pool (The Pond) would be optional, local police informed the property that non-topless pools are not allowed in Henderson. So, to stay in compliance, Tao Beach at Venetian allows topless females on quiet weekdays, but never on weekends, when the celebrity hotspot dissolves into a boiling mass of party-goers.
Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Aden Ocampo-Gomez said that when it comes to arrests for indecent exposure, there has to be a victim. Las Vegas casinos can have both topless pools and topless shows, as long as they follow all local laws and ordinances, of which there are too many to list. .
