Sarah Palin could see Russia from her doorstep. We could see Circus Circus.
If you’re heading to Vegas and prefer to ditch the Broadway musicals, drag queen revues and shirtless male dancers for something gay, then have we got the place for you. Blue Moon Resort is proud to be the only gay men’s resort in Las Vegas. Tucked away a few blocks off the Strip (on the Stratosphere/Sahara side), the three-story hotel has been converted into an oasis for gay men, complete with clothing-optional heated pool area and 10-man Jacuzzi grotto.
The well-appointed rooms (and gigantic suites) don’t have your typical paisley-bedspread-chain-hotel feel. And with four free channels of gay porn, you may never see the outside of your room again (especially if they rebroadcast our favorite—gay clown porn)!
Even if you don’t choose to stay at Blue Moon, you can get a day pass to the pool, get your fill of naked men and still hit a $5.99 buffet before you head back to your own hotel.
It’s nice ice to be away from the hustle and bustle (and hustlers) of the Strip, but use these tips:
1. Rent a car (it’s as cheap per day as a one-way cab from the airport to the hotel) because even though it’s just blocks from the strip, walking to the nearest hotel will take you more than 30 minutes. And cabs aren’t plentiful on this hidden street. In fact, most cab drivers have never heard of the street name, let alone the hotel.
2. BYOB&F. There’s no bar or restaurant on site, so bring your own booze and pudding snack packs. But if you make like a good Boy Scout and come prepared, hanging out all day at the pool with a 30-pack of Coors Light is a great way to experience a different Vegas. Just make sure to hit the group shower afterward to wash off all the guilt.
Rooms start at just $99 per night. Complimentary continental breakfast, wi-fi.
