The Legends Room – Las Vegas Gentlemen’s Cabaret Blockchain?
The Legends Room is a unique gentlemen’s club in Las Vegas that made headlines for being the first gentlemen’s club to accept its own cryptocurrency. Find out how this unique system works today in our review.
What Is The Legends Room?
The Legends Room is a gentlemen’s cabaret based in Las Vegas. The cabaret officially launched in April 2017, with the token sale taking place throughout March 2017.
The club is operated by Las Vegas club manager and promoter Nick Blomgren, hosted by UFC Hall of Famer Stephan Bonnar, and curated by Asa Akira, one of the world’s best-known adult entertainment stars (initial press releases mentioned Asa Akira as a prominent member of the team, although it’s unclear if she’s still affiliated with the project, as all mentions of Akira have been removed from the official website).
In a press release announcing The Legends Room, the creators of the cabaret described how they aim to “exceed all expectations for club life in Las Vegas”:
“We have created an experience unlike any other club in Las Vegas,” Blomgren said. “Beautiful girls, amazing service and unparalleled exclusivity.”
The club will accept traditional forms of payment. However, it will also accept bitcoin as a payment platform. That effectively allows someone to pay for a wide variety of Vegas experiences with bitcoin – like hotels, exotic cars, fantasy excursions, training with UFC stars, and more.
You can also pay for the club’s services in their own digital token called LGD. LGD token holders can purchase membership plans or get a 20% discount on food and beverages at the club.
The Legends Room Memberships
During the ICO, platinum lifetime memberships were available for $5,000 each, while silver memberships were priced at $1,500. Sales were limited to a lifetime permanent limit of 6,000 members.
All platinum members receive $2,500 in drink and $2,500 in dance credits, while silver members receive $500 of each. Anyone who participated in the token sale also received a personalized welcome video “from a celebrity associated with the Legends Room.”
You can also purchase LGD tokens that can be spent at Legends Room. 30,000,000 tokens were created during the ICO.
Other benefits of Legends Room memberships include:
- 24 hour access through a private entrance
- A reserved bar with a dedicated mixologist
- A members-only menu
- Hidden conversation areas
- Ultra private rooms
- “Special evenings with some of the world’s most well known adult stars”
- Additional acts from entertainers and globally-recognized personalities, including celebrities from MMA, boxing, film, entertainment, and music industries
- Access to discounted airfare prices, exotic car rentals, hotel rooms, and car or limo services
- 20% discount on products and services when spending LGD tokens
- Members receive a 50% discount on all club services except gaming
One of the unique features of Legends Room membership, however, is the ability to rent or lease memberships on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. Members can lease memberships through their own private transfers.
Or, they can do so through the club’s concierge. Memberships are also available to be traded on multiple digital-currency exchanges. It appears only VIP members can “share” their membership, and this option doesn’t appear to be available to Silver Members.
During the ICO, you could buy memberships using one of 30 different digital currencies, including Bitcoin, Ether, Dash, Blackcoin, and Dogecoin.
What To Expect At The Legends Room
The Legends Room consists of two large, well-appointed rooms inside a club. One room is for non-members who have purchased entry through a nightly cover charge, while the other half is for the limited number of Legends Room members.
If you’re a Legends Room member, you’ll show your Legends Room app to gain entry – similar to how you’d show the QR code for a digital wallet or a boarding pass.
Digital tokens can also be spent in the main room by nonmembers for club services (although you can’t spend digital tokens on gaming). As the LegendsRoomLV.com website explains, “dance dollars have now gone digital.”
Each week, Legends Room features a top adult star in a weekend residency. Some of the Legends Girls listed so far include Penthouse Pet of the Year Kenna James, Kat Dior, Tasha Reign, London Keyes, and others.
If you’re a Legends Room member, your membership covers yourself and a guest. There’s also no fee to share a membership, or allow another guest to use it.
The venue itself is located at 3750 Valley View Blvd.
About The Legends Room
The Legends Room was founded by three individuals who have been active in digital currency since 2014. Those individuals include Nick Blomgren, the founder of Legends Room, who has been associated with some of Las Vegas’s best-known gentlemen’s clubs for over 20 years. Nick is also an accomplished martial artist.
Stephan Bonnar is listed as the “Host” of Legends Room. Bonnar is a UFC Hall of Famer who has recently become an active financial trader.
Finally, there’s Phil Baroni, described as “The New York Bad Ass” and “a strip club expert” who will hold court nightly with Legends Room members.
Legends Room initially scheduled its ICO for February 2017. That ICO was canceled after a change of venue and allegations of wrongdoing. The company claims to have canceled the ICO because they were offered a better venue at the last minute.
It’s also unclear how Asa Akira is associated with the project (if at all) because early press releases mentioned her name prominently, although we could find little mention of her available online today.
You can find the Legends Room at:
3750 Valley View Blvd.
Las Vegas, NV 89102
The Legends Room Conclusion
The Legends Room is a unique concept that allows you to pay for strip club services – like lap dances – with bitcoin and other digital tokens. You can use the Legends Room’s own tokens, LGD, to get a 20% discount on club services.
Or, you can sign up as a member (by buying one of 6,000 available memberships) to enjoy the benefits available. There are two membership tiers, including VIP and Silver memberships.
Initial press releases showed that adult entertainment celebrities like Asa Akira were affiliated with the project, although it’s unclear if that’s still the case. However, the venue is open to the public in Las Vegas today at 3750 Valley View Blvd.
