Hollywood actor-turned-bad boy Charlie Sheen will bring some star power to the Memorial Day Weekend party in Las Vegas at Sapphire Pool & Day Club, which bills itself as “the world’s largest gentlemen’s club.”
Sheen will mingle with male guests and scantily clad women on Saturday. A red carpet walk is scheduled for 2 p.m.; the meet-and-greet is expected to continue until about 5 p.m.
Admission is $50.
Sheen’s big break came in 1986, when he landed a leading role in the epic Vietnam movie “Platoon.” By 2010, he had become one of Hollywood’s best-paid actors, earning a reported $1.8 million per episode on TV’s “Two and a Half Men.” His well-publicized struggles with drugs and alcohol led to his departure from the hit show in 2011.
Sapphire, just west of the Strip at 3025 S. Industrial Road, features free limo transportation to and from patrons’ hotels.
The club’s newest feature, Sapphire Grill, opened in early May. It offers a diverse menu from snacks to complete meals and is the creation of celebrity Chef Kerry Simon, the proprietor of restaurants in both Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
