Strip Club Etiquette: Learn the Ropes

You might think that just because you are entering a strip club that you can act the way you want. Sure, it is a place where the rules are a little more relaxed, but that does not mean that you can behave inappropriately or act outrageous. Here are some dos and don'ts when it comes to the world of strip clubs.

Do: Dress Appropriately

Sure, some venues let guests walk in with T-shirts and cutoff shorts. But if you are going with friends for a night on the town, then you want to wear something that is both comfortable and that you can sit down in. You will be taking in the sights, so you want to do so comfortably. Plus, you do not want to stick out in this crowd. People are here to see the strippers, not you, so try not to draw too much attention to yourself - either by the way that you dress or by the way that you act.{relatedarticles}

Don't: Be Loud and Obnoxious

There is one in every crowd, but do your best to avoid being that guy or girl. Even if you feel like you have had a bit too much to drink, rein it in as much as possible. You might think of it as a strip club, but it is a business - and it is a business that relies on repeat business from its clientele. Act professionally (considering the circumstances), and you will be asked to return again.

Do: Be Nice to the Bouncer

There is almost always someone at the door who either is taking cover charges or working to ensure that there are no brawls or unsightly guests making their way inside. Be nice to this person. He could be your ticket to better seats and better experiences. You might even want to consider tipping him so that you have an ally. Chances are that he can get you some pretty cool perks if you make nice with him.


Don't: Assume Anything

There are strip clubs that just offer chances for you to watch strippers, but there are clubs that allow much more. If you are unsure what type of services the strip club that you visit provides, then you will need to ask. Either check its Web site before you go or ask the bouncer or a manager once you are there. You do not want to be put in a situation where you thought you were getting more out of the experience than you actually can get. It can be embarrassing for all parties, and you might not be asked to return to the club.{relatedarticles}

Do: Ask What Everything Costs

In addition to making sure that you know what kinds of services you can get, you also want to know what everything costs. Again, most of this information can be found on the club's Web site, but if you do not get the chance to check beforehand, you should be able to talk to the manager or get a price list from someone at the club. This is particularly helpful if you are taking a friend out for a night of debauchery. You will want to know just how much you are paying for him to have an unforgettable experience.

Don't: Get Too Drunk

Yes, you want to have a great night and an unforgettable time - but the key word here is unforgettable. If you get too excited about your trip and drink just a little too much to relax, it could end up being way too much by the end of the night and you will have forgotten everything that happened. Plus, you may have caused a scene at the club, which no one wants. Instead, pace yourself so you can enjoy the night without having to ask your friends about it the next day.


Do: Get a Designated Driver

That being said, if you are going to drink, you should only have enough alcohol in your system to have a good time. Whether you are out with a few friends or a large group, you want to have a designated driver. Talk to someone at the club about the cab companies that they use frequently. Their recommendation can be helpful as the night wears on and you find that you cannot possibly get behind the wheel. You can always pick up your car the next day - sure, it is a walk of shame of sorts, but it is well worth it.{relatedarticles}

Don't: Try Any Funny Stuff with the Girls

This, of course, is unless you are at a club where this is welcomed. But for the most part, each service that is provided at these clubs costs money. If you simply walk in, sit down, watch a girl dance, and then try to touch her, you might risk getting kicked out. Look around the place to see what other guests are doing and how they are behaving. Fall in line with them, and you will be fine. Step out of line, and you could get into big trouble.

Do: Get to Know the Club's DJ

There are DJs at virtually all strip clubs, and they are the ones who are in charge of the music that is being played. You of course can make requests, but you also want to talk to the DJ to learn more about the place. Chances are good that he knows more than most people about the club and the types of services it provides - not to mention the overall atmosphere. He can be your best ally if you treat him right.


Don't: Skimp

These girls get paid for their work, and they get paid by people like you. Most of the women who work at these clubs rely entirely on tips. If you like what you see, then be generous. {relatedarticles}The days of dollar bills are being replaced by 10s and 20s. These women work hard for your enjoyment, so the least you can do is reward them for it.
