A timeless staple of the entertainment scene, burlesque shows in Las Vegas have entertained visitors for decades. Perfectly fitting the “Sin City” moniker, burlesque shows are racy and sexy, often featuring topless performers and striptease routines.
Below, I’ll summarize which burlesque shows in Las Vegas that are currently running and rank them from best to worst based on customer reviews on TripAdvisor.
Ticket prices can vary when looking at the box office vs. 3rd party ticketing websites. I’ll link out to a couple of ticketing options for each show so that you can quickly compare prices and get the best deal.
Best Burlesque Shows in Las Vegas
Zombie Burlesque at Planet Hollywood
Transport yourself back to the late 1950s and enter Club Z, a window into zombie culture. A unique twist on the traditional sexy burlesque show, Zombie Burlesque has earned 4.5/5 stars on TripAdvisor after 2,700+ reviews earning it the crown as the best burlesque show in Vegas.
Rouge at STRAT
The self-proclaimed “Sexiest Show in Vegas” is one of the newest burlesque shows in town, incorporating the “sexpertise” of both men and women.
Uniquely, the topless show also incorporates a variety of “non-burlesque” acts like comedians, contortionists, and acrobatics into the production.
Reviews have started to trickle in, and Rouge has earned an impressive 4.5/5 stars on TripAdvisor after 80+ reviews, ranking it among the best options in town.
Fantasy at Luxor
Billed as “The Strip’s Biggest Tease”, Fantasy entertained its first fans 20 years ago, and has racked up an impressive amount of awards since.
Earning a rock-solid 4.0/5 stars on TripAdvisor after over 765 reviews, Fantasy finds itself in a tie as the second-best burlesque show in Las Vegas. Tickets typically cost between $50 – $75.
X Country at Harrah’s
Another themed Las Vegas burlesque show, X Country is a topless revue set to hits from the country music genre.
Although there are only 15 reviews, this “Kick’n Topless Revue” has earned 3.5/5 stars on TripAdvisor and should be a consideration for visitors that consider themselves to be country.
X Burlesque at Flamingo
Playing in Flamingo’s X Showroom, X Burlesque incorporates a classic striptease in a champagne glass, in addition to a full 75-minute topless revue production.
Earning 3.5/5 stars on TripAdvisor after 570+ reviews, X Burlesque is a well-respected option.
Exxcite at Rio
A product of Jennifer Romas, Exxcite is a 75-minute “crazy train” that now calls Rio’s Duomo Theater home. Choreographed to rock music, Exxcite tracks the history of female sexuality from the 1950s to today while paying homage to the Sin City’s glamorous showgirl past.

Another Burlesque Attraction – A Museum!
If Burlesque is your jam, then the Burlesque Hall of Fame could also be of interest!
Located in the Las Vegas Arts District, the museum boasts “Several thousand costumes, stage props, photographs, and personal effects” from burlesque performers throughout the decades.
Currently Paused Burlesque Shows
Caesars recently re-shuffled their entertainment options leaving several shows, including X Rocks and Crazy Girls, theaterless for the time being. I’ll be sure to update this post when and if they’re able to find a new home!
If bands like Metallica and AC/DC are up your alley, then this topless revue set to the hits could be a great fit. With performers adorned in a leather wardrobe and even “Slash-inspired” top hats, this sexy burlesque show could be the perfect way to rev your evening up. While not the best burlesque show in Vegas, only earning 4/5 stars on TripAdvisor, this could still be a solid option for rock fans.
A classic, and long-running Las Vegas burlesque show, Crazy Girls once called the Riviera Hotel and Casino home. Today, the sexy topless revue can be found at Planet Hollywood, and the iconic bronze statue depicting their backsides that once sat outside Riviera is located on the casino floor. Earning only 4/5 stars on TripAdvisor, this show could still represent a good value at its price point. Even if you don’t stop in for the show, the statue is rumored to provide good luck to those that give it a rub.
Hopefully, I was able to help you find a burlesque show in Las Vegas that will fit the needs and preferences of your group! Of course, I’d also recommend checking out this compilation of male revue shows in Las Vegas which is also ranked based on customer review scores.

I’m a former software salesman turned Vegas aficionado. While the craps table is my preferred habitat, I pull myself away to explore new attractions, shows, restaurants, and outdoor activities around Las Vegas with the intent of sharing my experiences.
Ultimately, I just want to help folks plan a better trip and save a few bucks in the process.
