The Grand Theft Auto series has long been known for its inclusion of strip clubs as a way to pass time between missions, and in some cases, the location where missions take place. The Vanilla Unicorn in GTA 5 is the game’s strip club and preserves this tradition while upping the ante with fully topless strippers this time around. Here’s a look at the history of the Vanilla Unicorn, what you can do there, and a few fun facts about it that you may not know.
Vanilla Unicorn History
The Vanilla Unicorn in GTA 5 was founded in 1984 according to an in-game text advertisement that reads, “For the finest girls in Los Santos visit the Vanilla Unicorn – Objectifying the female form since 1984.” GTA 5 takes place in 2013 and at the time, the strip club was owned by a man named Leon until Trevor kills him and takes over. After this legally questionable transfer of ownership, Trevor, Michael, and Franklin can use the Vanilla Unicorn as a safe house.
What You Can Do at the Vanilla Unicorn
You can do pretty much everything at the Vanilla Unicorn that you can do at real-life strip clubs. You can order food and drinks, you can throw away your money to pole dancers, and get lap dances in the back rooms. And, just like in real life, you’ll get kicked out if you’re caught touching the girls.
You can also get the strippers to invite you back to their place for a little sexy time without having to give them drugs. This is done by paying for a private dance and filling up their “like” meter without getting caught touching them by the bouncers. You can even talk dirty to them using your headset to make the meter go up faster. Just be aware that everyone in your lobby will be able to hear you if you’re playing GTA Online so be careful not to humiliate yourself.
Interesting Vanilla Unicorn Trivia
This wraps up with an overview of a few interesting facts about the Vanilla Unicorn in GTA 5. First of all, the name “Vanilla Unicorn” is a parody of the real-life chain of strip clubs known as the “Spearmint Rhino.” The establishment seems to be quite popular since even Michael’s incel son Jimmy De Santa has a Vanilla Unicorn calendar in his room.
Also, despite Trevor becoming the owner of the strip club during story mode, members of the Families gang can still be found there. This is probably because it is located in their territory though it is odd for Trevor to tolerate another gang on his property.

Speaking of Trevor, one of the most interesting things about the Vanilla Unicorn in GTA 5 is how it changes after he acquires ownership. At this point, everything is free for Trevor and he can touch the girls as much as he wants. He also won’t be kicked out for causing a ruckus in the building either. Michael and Franklin will also be able to touch the strippers as much as they want, but will still have to pay up to do so. All the money goes straight to Trevor Philips Enterprises, of course, because Trevor is a criminal genius.
