Every strip club isn’t the same. If you’re going to go out on the town with your buddies to enjoy some dancing ladies, you should decide first what type of place you want to go to. This will make a huge difference in the quality of the girls, as well as the dent it will put into your wallet.

The Gentleman’s Club – These are the really upscale places that you see in movies. How can you tell if it’s a GC? There will be a valet parking your car, a nicely dressed bouncer, and they won’t let you in if you’re wearing a t-shirt and jeans. These are the high class places, which means two things – the girls are hot and the drinks are expensive. Even if you’re not into the high-scale atmosphere, it’s definitely worth checking out these places once in a while. It’s way different.

The Wanna-Be Gentleman’s Club – Another type of strip club, which is way more common, is the club that wants to be a Gentlemen’s Club. These are places that try to look like they’re upscale, but you get inside and realize it’s not all that. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing; they’re always a step up from the neighborhood place. But they’re not quite the real thing. It can be tough to tell if it’s a real or want-to-be GC. The best way to know for sure is to ask buddies who know the local scene.

The Neighborhood Place – Then, there are just neighborhood bars where they started having girls dance. I don’t mean in any way to make these places sound bad. At these places, you’ll find the girls to be a little lower caliber, but they can still be fun. This is the type of place where the girls hang out with the customers, you can buy them drinks and have a few laughs, and the prices are much lower. You’ll also often find girls here who are just starting out; they’re not bad, but not experienced yet enough to get a gig at the GC. You can have a really good time in places like this, so don’t know them until you try them.

The Adult Emporium – Sometimes a strip club will be connected to an adult book store or adult theater. These are often in really bad parts of town or on the highway for truckers to stop at. The quality of girls here is not very high, so these places are not recommended. They’re sleazy and cheap, but you’re not going to have a really good time there.

Denver Strip Bars / Bar Mix – Lately, as the whole stigma of the strip club has been wearing off, there are places popping up that are regular bars with dancing girls in the back. You can hang out in the bar area and just drink, or pay to go into the area where the girls are. These are especially popular in areas where alcohol can’t be served in clubs.

Every guy has a certain type of place he likes. Check out every type of strip club and see what kind of place appeals to you. Then, you can make the best of your guys’ night out.
