5 Tips for your first strip club visit in NYC

For the first timer, we present 5 simple tips on what to expect, and do for your first strip club visit in New York City so you are more comfortable and not embarrassed.

Bring Cash

Unless you don't have a care in the world about paying service fees on your credit card, bring cash. This is a tipping Industry; before you leave you'll notice that you'll be tipping not only the dancers, but the waitress, bartender, floor host, door host (if they sit you in a nice area) and the valet.

Dayshift vs Night shift visit

If you don't have that much money to spend for a visit, perhaps you can have a dayshift visit for your first time.  Dayshift offers a Happy Hour special which usually includes no cover charge, discounted drinks and good lunch specials.  It's also not so crowded so you are most likely to get a special treatment from staff and entertainers who have more time to sit around and talk with you.  If you are looking for louder music, fast pace and more girls, then the night shift is for you.

Taking pictures

That is generally a no-no.  Many clubs have a no picture policy at all times.  If they see you take out your phone and take pictures of girls on stage you might get a visit from a few large friendly bouncers who will want to make sure you delete those pictures.  If you want to capture your fist club visit in a picture, you might have good luck if you find a floor host and ask them to take a picture of you and your friends.  They might be inclined to help out since its them taking the picture for you and they can make sure no pictures of the girl is taken.  If you have a nice enough entertainer sitting with you, she might even be okay with being in the picture.  Just make sure you ask first!

Buying a beverage

If you don't drink, buy a soda, bottled water or any non-alcoholic beverage.  If you really don’t want a drink, don’t expect to sit at a table and not order anything.  Tables are for customers that order….anything.  It can even be food if the club has a kitchen.

Sitting at the stage

Customers that sit on the stage usually do so to see the endless parade of girls doing a 2 or 3 song set.  Topless clubs only allow topless dancing and full nude clubs you'll see the whole enchilada.  These guys usually like to get their fill on watching all the girls the club has to offer.  They are not usually into buying a dance but don't mind sitting on stage with a stack of singles and tipping each girl a few bucks as they do their dance sets.
