How to Handle Strip Club Dancers and Employees Who Try to Overcharge You
Some customers have posted comments on TVO that the prices quoted here are not being honored at the clubs. For example, “lvchulo” wrote that dancers at Little Darlings (club review / club website) were quoting him a price of $40 for 2-for-1 dances instead of the club’s official price of $20. He said that even for single dances, dancers were quoting prices of $30 and $40, with one dancer quoting him a price of $60 for a dance “with touching.”
He also said that a few dancers told him that the $125 for 15 minutes was the “club price,” and that they have to charge on top of that for themselves. One dancer wanted $50 more, another wanted $75 more, and another wanted $25 more.
I checked with management at Little Darlings, who told me dancers are not allowed to set their own rates at Little Darlings.
A sign that hangs right outside the entrance to Little Darlings’ VIP rooms posts the club’s lap dance price prominently, and asks customers to see a manager if they are asked to pay a different amount. If you see a manager and report you have paid a different amount, he will refund the difference and get it back from the dancer.
Commenter David had a different kind of problem at Deja Vu Showgirls (club review/ club website). He asked the “doorman/bouncer for the private section” about the $250 deal for a 30-minute private room dance. He was quoted $250 for the dancer and $120 for the room/bottle. That too is incorrect.
The private-bedroom drink requirement is two drinks for 15 minutes, a $50 mini-bottle for 30 minutes, or $100 bottle for one hour.
Anyone quoting you a higher rate is either misinformed or perhaps getting a commission on bottles he sells, so he’s trying to make a few extra bucks. Customers are allowed to order more expensive bottles in the private bedrooms. But never required.
If a dancer or club employee won’t honor the correct private-room price, ask to speak to the manager.
