Are we allowed to tip go-go dancers?

    I remember walking into the LVC Downtown on one of my past trips. It was pretty deserted in there. There was one go-go dancer who clearly wasn't too happy; probably thinking why she has to dance to an empty casino.

    I'm thinking if I tipped her maybe it would brighten up her spirits.

    Do you think they would be offended? I know they tip dancers at strip clubs but the dancers there dance more provocatively whereas the casino go-go dancers dance more wholesomely.

    Anybody ever tip the go-go dancers?

    Yes, you can.

    From what I was told, they make an extra couple bucks per shift for dancing and get to keep all the tips when they are up there.

    I regularly play blackjack at the Golden Gate downtown and routinely tip the dancers in the pit area. Rather than just toss them a chip directly, I give it to one of the pit bosses and he in turn gives it to the dancer. They always give me a big smile/blow me a kiss in appreciation.

    Tip everybody.

    Speaking of which, if you really want to make someone's day... shoot a red chip to the casino employees that empty trash cans, ashtrays, etc.

    I tip bathroom attendants here and there. Seems to make their day since they have a shitty job.

    There is a short list of people you can't/don't tip in Vegas. Off the top of my head, I can't of one. Maybe the TSA agents at the airport.

    I saw a few people tipping the girls at LVC. It was the only place I saw anyone doing it. We played a lot at the D also and I never saw their dancers receiving any tips. The girls at the LVC where grateful, usually blowing a kiss to the tipper.

    One day at the LVC there was a really drunk guy, I mean really drunk, and he kept giving one of the girls chips. He must have given her at least $50 over the course of a few minutes. She had a good shift that day.

    Yep - just give the tip to a pit-critter & tell them that it's for the dancer.

    ...and Mike... Spot On!

    Add in: Cops; WAX bus drivers; Pit bosses; Hosts (although, there are ways to get non-cash tips to PBs & Hosts).
     
    Seems like forever from now, but the flights are booked, so it counts!

    I've tipped my fair share of dancers at the Pleasure Pit in Planet Hollywood. They always seem to appreciate it

    I always tip 'em. They are working hard, and deserve the recognition.
