Based on the hit film franchise, ‘Magic Mike’ and ‘Magic Mike XXL,’ Magic Mike Live in Las Vegas recreates the alluring Club Domina. The cabaret nightclub inside the famous Hard Rock Hotel & Casino offers first-class entertainment with state-of- the-art capabilities and a cast of 13 of the hunkiest and most talented men in the country. The idea behind Magic Mike Live was conceived by Channing Tatum, the actor who played Mike in the original films, as well as the films’ choreographer, Alison Faulk.
Whether you’re hosting a bachelorette party or just a girls’ night out on the town, Magic Mike provides show-goers a sizzling dance and acrobatic strip tease show that is guaranteed to bring out your wild side. The space inside the Hard Rock Hotel has been completely redesigned to capture the unique essence of the mythical Club Domina and has no doubt hit the mark. The club has created a 360-degree production that gives ladies on all sides of the stage an up close and personal look at the chiseled men. Channing describes Magic Mike Live as the first “gentle ladies club” as Vegas is already chock full of gentlemen’s clubs targeted to men.
While Magic Mike Live opens with your stereotypical male strip tease, the show takes a quick turn to deliver ladies with non-stop entertainment. The show introduces each of the thirteen muscular performers who aim to teach the clueless waitress Mike how to please women. The other performers teach through hip-hop, break dance, and tunes involving ladies from the audience. In fact, many of the acts feature audience participation from the hundreds of guests. Some women are given foot massages while others have the opportunity to stroke the dancers’ abs. While the dancing and strip teases are sensual, they’re also fun in a way that doesn’t feel cheap or demeaning.
When you enter the Club Domina replica, you’ll be met with classy interiors including cozy leather seating, oversized couches, and elegant décor. The stage is centered allowing every woman in the room ample opportunity to see the men at all angles. In the background you’ll hear the tunes of the female DJ, who has as much sass and wit as she does talent. The intimate theater has a high-energy party vibe with state-of- the- art features worthy of Las Vegas status. It’s no secret why Magic Mike Live has been regularly touted as one of the best male revue shows in the city.
While you’re visiting the guys of Magic Mike, be sure to stop for a drink. The venue offers a unique menu of goblet drinks as well as friendly waiters who are ready to cater to your every request. You’ll also want to stop by the Pleasure Shop on the way out for a souvenir to bring home. This is one night you won’t want to forget so be sure to have a token to remember it by. You may also want to stick around at the end of the show to get your picture taken with one of the guys.
While Magic Mike is a newcomer to Vegas, they’ve already made a major impression. The sultry performances in the custom designed showroom bring audiences to their feet night after night. “We want to create a place for women that is their gentlemen’s club, their Playboy club,” says Tatum. “It shouldn’t be sleazy.” Show times for Magic Mike Live range from Wednesday to Sunday at 8 PM and 10:30 PM. Round up your closest friends and plan a night out to see the men of Magic Mike at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas.
