LAS VEGAS — The largest Penthouse Club opened this week in Las Vegas, complete with a blessing by Mayor Oscar Goodman who presented the key to the city to a number of Penthouse Pets.

The Penthouse Club Las Vegas, located at 3525 W. Russell Road in the space formerly occupied by Sin, counts more than 46,000 square feet of room for exotic entertainers to strut their stuff.

The gentlemens club also includes dining and a separate area called the R U 702 Locals Only Lounge where only Nevadans can gain access and receive their first drink free.

At its grand opening, more than 100 Penthouse Pets and Key Girls welcomed celebrities and others. Attendees included comedian and The Howard Stern Show host Artie Lange, St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson, comedian Jeff Beacher, “Saved by the Bell” star Dennis Haskins and poker player Todd Brunson.

Goodman, who in return received a key to the licensed Penthouse club in his office chamber, is no stranger and isn’t timid to adult brands, particularly if it involves the adult playground that is Las Vegas.

Several years ago, hizzoner was chastised by political gadflies over a photo shoot he participated in. Goodman criticized his opponents, calling them “haters and those who need to get a life.” He later vowed the shoot was good publicity and fun, “and I would do it again.”
