Area 51 Alien Center And Brothel

Interesting place to stop and check out all the alien stuff in the store. The brothel beside the store gives free tours...worth the extra time to do the tour.

Are 51 Alien Center.

Area 51 Alien Travel Center and Brothel

Highway 95, next door to the giant firecracker, is another spot designed to lure in the weary traveler. Bright lime green and pink, it is a gas and convenience store with a pink brothel around back. The wholesome looking Daddy D's Rocket Diner in the rear of the store doubles as a topless bar at night.

[Meg Zorn, 10/11/2013]

This building with an Old West facade was previously named "Nevada Joe's." The brothel, "Alien Cathouse," bills itself as the only themed brothel in the U.S. Free tours are offered by its genuinely friendly staff, who say that the Cathouse's most frequently requested fantasy outfit is Princess Leia.
