Breaking the mold on the gentlemen’s club, Peppermint Hippo is now open on the Las Vegas Strip. As the only club of its type in the tourism corridor that bridges center Strip with Downtown, Peppermint Hippo re-envisions adult-driven nightlife with state-of-the-art sound and lighting, VIP amenities, a podcast studio, speakeasy and 24-hour entertainment. The newest Peppermint Hippo location follows popular venues in Lust, Ohio; Reno, Nevada; Neenah, Wisconsin; Little Rock, Arkansas; and Akron, Ohio.
The Doors are Open
“I am thrilled to unveil our newest Peppermint Hippo concept in Las Vegas,” said Peppermint Hippo CEO Alan Chang. “The city has welcomed us with open arms and it is good to be home. When we embarked on the Peppermint Hippo journey more than four years ago it was always our vision to ultimately land in the entertainment capital of the world.”
Since 2017, Chang has acquired and redeveloped gentlemen’s clubs around the country - taking the dark, outdated venues and transforming them into Las Vegas-style nightclubs. Thanks to that vision, the Peppermint Hippo brand has become known for its high-energy vibe, best-of-the-best entertainers and exceptional customer service.
A New Home With a History
Peppermint Hippo occupies the historic former home of Olympic Garden, which was a Las Vegas institution for decades as the only gentlemen’s club on the Las Vegas Strip. Sitting at the intersection of Wyoming Ave and Las Vegas Boulevard, Peppermint Hippo is the beneficiary of an ongoing $125 million construction project to improve a 2.5-mile stretch of the city’s epicenter.
“Everyone has a memory of OGs and we love and embrace that history,” Chang said. “The building built in the 1940s is a Las Vegas landmark and we are proud to give it a $4.5 million top-to-bottom remodel.”
Inside Peppermint Hippo Las Vegas
Upon entering Peppermint Hippo from the expanded porte cochere, which accommodates all modes of transportation to and from the club, meet the lady of the house, Pepper, a life-size stainless steel hippopotamus, weighing 888 pounds, constructed onsite.
The 27,000 square-foot Peppermint Hippo features multiple areas with different entertainment experiences. The main room features a bar, 40 stage side seats, 20 tables and seven bottle booths. This is where the act unfolds nightly. In the Hippo Room, five bottle booths close to the stage so VIP guests can easily make it rain, creating the ultimate party vibe.
For those who like being close to the action, there is an additional bar in the Hippo Room as well as 30 stage seats and 15 tables. One of the most exclusive features of Peppermint Hippo is the Speakeasy, and there is also a large VIP area that is transforming into a podcast booth so high-profile clientele have the option to record their content onsite. Throughout, there are private enclaves for exclusive parties.
Peppermint Hippo’s parking lot offers more than 300 convenient parking spots as well as an ongoing selection of food trucks to cater to a variety of tastes.
