Billed as “The Ultimate Girls Night Out,” the men of Chippendales The Show use song, dance, striptease and body butter to play out an array of female fantasies.
The Rio All-Suite Resort and Casino house were created by the Chippendales in 2002, and after 3 years of selling-out and dazzling crowds at Club Rio, the casino opened the doors into a custom designed theater complex assembled only for Chippendales in 2005.
A digital resort area which was designed by women for girls, the theater complex boasts 21,000 square feet of a woman’s oasis in the desert. The 40-seat balcony offers private VIP heavens lounges, where girls celebrate special occasions from bachelorette to divorce bashes and may assemble in groups. Likewise, the women room decor is alluring, feminine and chic, featuring an exclusive rumor orchestra pit and multiple mini-makeover stations. Besides the theater, there’s a broad 1,500 square foot ultra Flirt lounge with a pub offering a stylized, intimate feel. A menu of specialty cocktails continues to be created for “The Ultimate Girls’ Night Out!,” where flavored rums, vodkas, tequilas and, obviously, champagne, are combined with unique ingredients and fruit juices to produce innovative cocktails. A next 2,100 square-foot retail boutique is host to an assortment of items that appeal to girls, such as bachelorette party equipment and exclusive Chippendales apparel.
The Show was revamped into an even more notable performance, whole with costuming, scenic design and new musical selections.
