A strip club is a strip club. It doesn’t matter what you call it, we all know what goes on in there. People, usually women, but sometimes men, take their clothes off, lap dance, pole dance and gyrate to a throbbing or slow sexy music for the single purpose of getting you excited. These days, they come complete with “fantasy viewing rooms”, where you can pretend to be a sultan or an English Lord, or some such. But we believe that, if you’re going to do something, you’d better do it in style. Which is why we’re introducing the
top 10 strip clubs out there.
10. K5 Relax Club, Prague, Czech Republic
Located in central Prague, K5 Relax Club is a kind of upmarket strip club cum country club. Working girls are legal in the Czech Republic, and there’s even an escort service, in addition to the sauna and steam bath. If you aren’t totally relaxed after sharing quality time with your chosen one playing emperor in the Roman Room, or try the Tantra Sexological Bodyworker massage.
9. Scores, New York City
This is a “gentlemen’s club” spread over 3 floors with lap dancers, a main stage for stripping, private room, and an upscale restaurant called Robert’s. Ypu may even hire the Presidential Suite where the Scores girls will do private lap dances, back rubs, “and anything else you can think of.”
8. Temptations, Bristol, England
Temptation’s job posting asks, if you have what it takes to swing on a pole and take your clothes off, and promises “full training”. The lower level is a bar complete with a 10 foot pole. On the ground floor, you can sip sparkly in the champagne bar and rent one of their VIP suites that can accommodate a crowd, and comes complete with leather couches, a private pole and a pool table. One intriguing item is a service for “couples” who want to experience Temptations together.
7. Spearmint Rhino, Las Vegas, Nevada
Maxim has called Spearmint Rhino “the reigning king of Las Vegas topless temples”. Spearmint was voted the best Vegas strip club. With 250 exotic dancers, a private Rhino room, and an over the top Vegas crowd, it is certainly not the place to go for a quiet night out.
6. 4Play Gentlemen’s Club, Los Angeles, California
Think lots of silicone and bleached blonde hair, nude stage shows and pole dancing to die for, and you’ve got 4Play. There’s no booze, but with lap dances, couch dances, even bed dances, you probably won’t care that much if you opt to stay dry.
5. Mary’s Club, Portland, Oregon
Portland has an amazing number of strip clubs, but Mary’s is probably the most iconic. Founded in 1954, it is not posh or swanky, more a joint than a club, but it feels homey and real. Look out for their Topless Blonde Ale. And for the topless blondes. This is an American institution, in the best sense of the word.
4. 2001 Odyssey, Tampa, Florida
Like Mary’s, 2001 Odyssey is unimposing from the outside, but once you get in, it’s all gyrating blondes, brunettes and red heads. It’s full nude and pulsating with light and juking with throbbing music. $25 buys you a full service lap dance; feel free to check out their Facebook page for the latest hottie on a beach picture.
3. Le Crazy Horse, Paris, France
Le Crazy Horse calls itself “avant-garde”. Dances are choreographed by a noted French choreographer, and lighting illuminates, but tantalizingly hides the good bits. A favorite with Asian businessmen, it carries on the tradition of Folies Bergere. If you can’t make it to Paris, check out their road show schedule.
2. Playhouse, Warsaw, Poland
Billed as the finest in Warsaw, it meanders over 3 levels, with a warm, if slightly quirky, atmosphere. Its 4 bars are certainly the center of the action, with dancers and girls without much to keep them warm wandering about in lingerie.
1. The Lodge, Dallas, Texas
This strip club is very Texas, with soaring ceilings, wood paneling, dead things mounted on the wall. The girl dance, they prowl around in cat suits, they do acrobatics above you as you eat or drink. Fire acts, juggling, and live snakes even get some air time on The Lodge’s impressive six stages.
