Strip Club Etiquette

So you're in Atlanta and you want to see what the hype about adult entertainment is all about.

While we have no problem providing you with the best experience you can have, we do want to implore upon you that prior to hopping in a freinds car or cab and barking, "To the strip club!" you take the time to read -- and understand -- a few Rules O' The Game.


DRESS CODES: Some of the more upscale joints require shirts with collars -- and they must be tucked in. We're cool with the come as you are idea. The general rule is common sense; after all, you're going to be surrounded by beautiful women, so you should at least look the part. Come in looking like a bum and they'll give you the bum's rush.

DOOR CHARGES: The fact is that most strip clubs increase their door charge during fight parties, special events or convention season. We tend to keep it pretty consistnant for general admission. 

STOCK UP ON CASH: Money makes the world go 'round. This statement can't be any truer than it is at a strip club. You can get drinks with your debit or credit card, but you can forget about stage or lap dances. Dancers are cash only. Yes, there is an ATM in the club, but many charge you a few dollar more than the average ATM fee.

HANDS OFF: Perhaps you've heard tales of wild and reckless abandon taking place in Atlanta strip clubs, or perhaps you've seen some sort travesty on your buddy's camera phone. Understand this: These women are, no matter what it may seem like, working. Keep your hands to yourself and you'll avoid a kick in the groin or a bouncer's meaty shove. Leaving the grinding to the gals will result in a better lap dance anyway.

TIPPING: Hellooooo, anybody home? Who's not used to getting their mojo working on the Net? Unlike the digital kind, these gals work for tips and tips alone. That means this: (1) Don't go into a strip club with barely enough dough to cover a round of drinks; (2) Don't look repeatedly at a dancer working her stuff without walking up and tipping her and (3) Do not, under any circumstances, sit at stageside seating without a pocketful of dollars. How much will you need for a night? If you are an average drinker, figure at least $20 per hour for a drink or two and stage tipping; lap dances go for $5 each, so add that on if you think you'll find the woman of your dreams (You will, so add it on now).

PROSTITUTION: 100 percent illegal in Fulton County. Don't solicit, suggest dinner or ask for a date; these women are dancers, not hookers.
