There are always rules when it comes to the etiquette in a strip club. There has to be, for the safety of the dancers, as well as the club’s clients. Just to make sure you are well aware of these before you decide to visit a strip club, we’ve compiled a list so that you don’t make a fool of yourself or end up being asked to leave. No one wants that, do they?
From the very start, you want to give the right impression. Turning up at the club in jogging bottoms or equally casual attire will not get you past the front door. Make a little effort if you’re going to a classy club like 4Play Lounge. After all, you want to impress the ladies, don’t you? Jeans are fine as long as they are not ripped or dirty. Smart casual is the way to go: shoes are better than trainers and shirts are better than T-shirts. Have a shave (if you’re not going for the bearded look!) and make sure you look and smell divine so you get your pick of the gorgeous girls!
The girls won’t be impressed if you stand there shouting and swearing at them. Seriously, in a well-run club, that kind of behavior will get you thrown out immediately. Try not to get too drunk. Sounds obvious, but dancers aren’t keen on giving private dances to guys who are swaying on their feet and slurring their words. Don’t start a fight, either with each other or any other clients attending the club. It’s not tolerated and the bouncers will ask you to leave.
As a general rule, many strip clubs (especially in the Western world) have a ‘no touching’ policy. There are exceptions to this rule and at 4Play Lounge, touching is allowed during the private lap dances, VIP, etc., however, not during the table dance and always within reason. You are not expected to sit on your hands, but be careful not to overstep the mark, no matter how much you would like to. Most dancers will let you know if you’ve gone too far, so please listen to your dancer or you may find that your night finishes earlier than you thought!
Be careful about the types of accessories you wear. We’re talking about sharp belt buckles, rings, watches or anything that could mark the dancers’ skin. Accidentally grazing or cutting the skin is easily done if you have had a few to drink, but don’t forget that looking good is part of the dancers’ job, they don’t want to be covered in cuts and marks. So leave your accessories at home – you don’t need them here anyway!
Rules of the Cloakroom
The cloakroom is free to use, and we only assume responsibility for valuables placed in the cloakroom. If you lose your cloakroom ticket, you will only be able to retrieve your valuables after you have clearly identified they are yours. Otherwise, we will give out the valuables after our last guest has left the club. We keep all left clothing for 1 month, then we donate them to homeless people.
Please remember: if you are unsure about any of the rules of a strip club, give them a ring and ask! They would rather you do that than kick you out of their club needlessly!
