    Hey, there is no good review of Little Darlings on Bourbon street. Can you share any information here on the website? Prices, dances, private rooms, etc…?

    • No problem. I’ve been meaning to get over to Little Darlings but haven’t found time. I’ve only ever been once. The only thing I remember is that it’s not very big and gets crowded on weekends. I think cover was like $5 on a Friday night. I didn’t get a private room but I imagine they’re as “high mileage” as any private room on Bourbon. I’ll try to post a review within the next week.

        How is the VIP rooms, are there cameras in them?

        Like

      • I did not notice any cameras in the VIP rooms. You can spot them pretty easily since they’re usually located in the two corners facing the couch you sit on.

        The VIP rooms were small. One small couch/love seat and one side table. My biggest complaint was the lighting. There was only one light in the room and the bulb was neon blue, so even at full strength it was pretty dark. It’s on a dimmer and the dancer turned the lights down to the point where I could barely make out her figure. I know some patrons may like that since that increases the chances of “special” services, but I’m a very visual person. If I’m paying a beautiful girl for a private room, I want to see what I’m paying for. I don’t want to miss out on that, but the lighting is so bad that’s kind of what happened. Ask her to tour the VIP rooms if you’re interested; they’ll always show you around if they think you’re interested. Another reason for the dim lighting could be that the curtain is partially transparent with the lights on. The managers are cool with whatever happens in there as long as they can’t see it.

      • I can’t say for certain, but I don’t think there’s any law explicitly forbidding registered sex offenders from working in strip clubs. I think that’s up to the discretion of the club owner. I know there are rules against sex offenders working in places where there are minors, like schools, malls, museums, etc.

        I could be wrong, though. It may vary from state to state.

      Here’s what I’ve heard about Passions. There’s more mileage here than any other club. The girls aren’t as attractive as other places. It’s a predominantly black club. The prices are cheaper than anywhere else.

      Public opinion doesn’t speak too well on Passions, but it didn’t for Little Darlings either and I was surprised when I went there (the club itself is a shithole, though). I’ll check it out.

    I’m going to be in New Orleans in November for the first time, coming down with friends for a Monday night Saints game. My guess is we’d hit a club either Saturday or Sunday night. Should I assume Sunday will probably be better in terms of smaller crowds, or is Sunday just as bad for the Bourbon-area clubs? And if Sunday is quieter, is the quality of girls lower too?

    Like

    • The quality of girls is definitely better on Saturday night. Although November is the beginning of the high time for tourism in New Orleans, Sundays are usually slow. The only clubs I’d consider on Sunday would be either Penthouse (my first choice) or Hustler or Barely Legal for quality girls. If you go on Saturday, you can avoid high priced rip offs like Rick’s, Hustler, and Barely Legal since clubs like Scores, Babe’s, or maybe Temptations will have hot girls. Temptations is pricey but the mileage is usually better. The one good thing about Sunday is the cover is generally free or heavily reduced.

    Love the site keep it coming any advice what bourbon club has decent looking women and mileage

    Like

    • Temptations probably has the best combination of good looking girls and mileage on Bourbon, especially if you get a VIP room. Keep in mind that mileage depends more on the girl than the club. Most girls dance at multiple clubs. There’s no club where every single girl gives a high mileage dance. Temptations has average to above average dancers, and the lap dance rooms and VIP rooms are completely private.

      If you’re not necessarily looking for extras but just good two-way contact and grinding, then Babe’s and Scores are also good options. Both have attractive women that give good dances.

Temptations and Lipstixx are also “anything’s available” for a price, but I have more fun at Scores.

    Oh, and I was planning on going to either visions are penthouse, should I tip more at penthouse above I heard that it is “better”? Thanks for your time.

    Like

    • $5 tips are unnecessary. The standard is still single dollar bills.

      The setup at Visions is different than other clubs. At Visions, the bar and the stage are the same thing. You sit at the bar/stage and girls dance for each customer one by one. The dance for each individual customer lasts for about 15 seconds. There’s no reason to tip any more than $1 per girl at Visions unless you really like that girl and want a dance from her (tipping $2 or more gets their attention).

      At Penthouse, if you’re sitting at the stage (also called the tip rail), you should tip at least one dollar. More than a dollar if she’s really working it up there or if she gives you special attention. $5 bills (or more) are only used to convince the girls to visit your table before the other customers (although this isn’t guaranteed). The top earning girls in the club go fast so if you see one you like – pull the trigger.

      Good luck and enjoy!

    I will be visiting New Orleans for the first time and will have limited time to find a club that suits my taste, so I’m hoping you can help. Keepin in mind that I primarily looking for Caucasian women, full nude private dances (if those actually exist here?), and a place that will let me get in and out, while getting a really hot time, for under… $150-ish. What place would you recommend?

    Like

    • Fully nude dances are *technically* illegal in Louisiana. If you want fully nude, you’ll need a (fully) private room. The going rate for private/champagne rooms on Bourbon Street is about $300 for the half hour. The least expensive private room is at Visions, which is in New Orleans East. If you’re a tourist, you’ll DEFINITELY want to take a cab out there, even if you did rent a car. Party Rooms at Visions start at $150 for the half hour (or 20 minutes if they decide to cut time) and are completely private. A lot will also have to do with when, and what time, you head out. Weekends are crazy on Bourbon. The clubs get super busy, and unless you’re in a group, it can be hard to get a girl’s attention. Especially around midnight.

      If you’re looking for primarily Caucasian women, you’ll want to stick to the higher-end clubs. Penthouse Club and Rick’s Cabaret have mostly white dancers. Hustler Club and Barely legal, I’d say, are predominantly white as well. Deja Vu and Babe’s Cabaret are pretty heavily white, too. Little Darlings is an all black club, so you won’t want that. Lipstixx and Stiletto’s are predominantly black, but have some white girls. Temptations and Scores are pretty evenly mixed between white girls and ethnic girls. Rick’s Sporting Saloon just sucks, so don’t go there.

      It’s fun to have much fun at Rick’s Cabaret without dropping a few hundred (the place is insanely overpriced), so I wouldn’t recommend there. Penthouse Club is also pricey once you factor in cover, (mandatory) drinks, possible dancer drinks + tips, and other miscellaneous costs. You may be able to get some decent action in the semi-private room if you get an hour ($375 last time I checked), but it’s tough for them to do fully nude since there’s no door. My personal favorite is Penthouse, but the girls here look for high rollers who will drop thousands and just lap dances. Same with Rick’s Cabaret and Hustler Club (Hustler is the worst).

      If you go to Temptations or Scores – you’ll find a girl willing to do fully nude. It’ll come down to price, though. Champagne rooms are $350 there.

      Considering all factors – dancer ethnicity, price, and mileage – I’d say either Babe’s if you want to stay on Bourbon or Visions if you want to venture out. Drinks at Babe’s are expensive, but the dancers over there are pretty chill and you may be able to work something out. As for Visions, don’t be scared off by what you read about the surrounding neighborhood. Just stay at the club (do NOT going wandering around) and you’re perfectly fine. There will be some clubs on Bourbon advertising free cover; stop in and see if there’s anything you like. If not, get out before having to buy a drink.

    • If we’re talking about mileage in private rooms, Little Darlings. If we’re just talking about regular lap dances, they’re the same. I always found both clubs use regular lap dances to sell customers on VIP rooms. Don’t get me wrong, the mileage isn’t bad for lap dances, but they’re not crazier than anywhere else.

      What’s interesting is that the stage dances at both of these clubs are terrible. No energy, no interaction … and not much fun.

I really liked Temptations (good mileage) but am open to your recommendations. Thanks!

    Like

    • I’m still doing reviews – I’ve just taken a REALLY long hiatus. I’m glad the reviews worked for you!

      I’m betting that Bourbon is going to be absolutely insane. All of downtown will be. The only worthwhile off-Bourbon club is Visions (in New Orleans East – about 10 minutes from downtown/CBD). Visions is packed on weekends and it’s a locals’ club, so most of the top girls have regulars that consume all of their time. The good thing about Visions is that they’ll likely have tons of dancers on shift through SB weekend; the bad thing is if you don’t like what you see when you get there (or if it’s too crowded), you basically have to turn around and go back downtown. Word of advice: take a cab. The neighborhood isn’t as bad as others say it is, but you don’t want to be wandering around NO East at night without a clue of where you are.

      Wherever you go – be prepared to spend mad cash. Strippers from all over the country will fly in for SB weekend, and they’re looking to make money fast. Maybe stick with some of the lesser known clubs here: Scores, Babe’s, Temptations, Rick’s Sporting Saloon (further down Bourbon away from Canal Street). Penthouse, Rick’s Cabaret, Hustler Club, Barely Legal, Deja Vu, and the other clubs that are national chains will be packed since tourists will go there automatically. Also remember to check out other stuff – there’s more to NOLA than strip clubs. Happy clubbing and good luck!

        Like

      • You’ll be fine. There should be a large crowd during SB weekend since most locals will stay the hell away from downtown. The problem with Visions is that it’s difficult for them to manage insanely large crowds. The lap dance rooms fill up and you’ve got to wait in line. That ties up the dancers – since they’re occupied and can’t dance on stage or talk with other customers. Keep in mind that Mardi Gras is also around this time.

        If you’re looking for good mileage on Bourbon, stick with Temptations, Scores, Lipstixx and maybe Babe’s.

        While here check out the WWII museum (or just the movie theater – it’s cool as hell). The American Sector restaurant is pretty good, too. If you’re looking to go out to regular bars, maybe check out Magazine Street. The Bulldog and the Balcony are two pretty good spots. The Republic is another cool place on South Peters (warehouse district – near downtown). If you need some good restaurants, I can help you out there. Most tourists hang out near Jackson Square. There’s lots of local artists, cafes, and other touristy stuff.

        Do NOT do any of the bus tours. The people guiding them are idiots. It’s funny, the city recently wanted to require that historical bus tours be able to prove that what they’re saying is historically accurate – and they’re fighting it: http://bit.ly/w5bbVH. Also, they are no Cajun people in NOLA (they live in Acadiana, which is near Lafayette and spans from Lake Charles to New Iberia); if you see any “Cajun experiences” tour, it’s pure bullshit. The coolest cemeteries are Greenwood (http://www.greenwoodnola.com/) and Lake Lawn in Metairie (http://www.lakelawnmetairie.com/location/about/cemetery.html).

        What stuff do you typically like to do? Art? Museums? Bars? Shop/antiquing? Sight see? Music? Let me know and I’ll give you some more recommendations.

    So, the bar scene is what I gravitate to but I’m not in to loud/crazy and really enjoy a good microbrew. By the way, I had never had Abita until last month (I know, I know…pretty sad, right?). Loved it.
    And of course there’s live music. I’m willing to brave the crowds in the Quarter for a good blue’s band, preferably not so loud that I can’t carry on a conversation, though!
    Thanks a lot – looking forward to having some good ideas lined up to get the most out of my next visit.

    what are the best black clubs to visit in new orleans

    • There are three: Little Darlings, Passions and She Shes. Passions and She Shes are both in New Orleans East; Little Darlings is on Bourbon. I’ve been to Little Darlings. They hustle hard and pretty much anything you’re looking for is on the table. The girls vary in attractiveness … a lot, but there are some cute ones on busy nights like Friday and Saturday. The club itself is shitty, dark and the private room kinda suck. I’ve never been to Passions, but hear it’s a straight-up brothel. The club is REALLY shitty (the stage is some portable table that you’d find in a kindergarten classroom). The VIP rooms are tiny booths that look like old time telephone booths. The hustle there is hard (but, from what I’ve heard, not quite like Little Darlings) and the mileage is legendary. I can’t comment on She Shes. It’s on 9000 Chef Menteur Highway; that’s all I know. They don’t have a website, but do have an old Twitter account (https://twitter.com/SheShesNoLa). The few reviews of the site seem favorable. Maybe somewhere to check out. Although, watch yourself and be alert: http://on.fb.me/Rw1QXm

      Club Eden has improved noticeably, but it’s not worth the trip all the way to Metairie (not worth the time or cost of cab). It’s a clean club (no extras inside the club). The girls are decent, but some days the club is just SLOW. Too much of a risk to gamble wasting away your night. Stick to Bourbon. A lot of cool stuff is going on downtown. Check out Little Gem Saloon on Poydras & Loyola if you get a chance (jazz club, not strip club). Supposedly they spent $9 million renovating the place. There’s another bar called Barcadia on Tchoupitoulas & Lafayette that’s kinda cool. Just opened. Walk-Ons is an awesome sports bar; there booths actually have beer taps at your table that you order from. Have fun!

    • Thursday: I would try Penthouse on Thursday. It’s going to be mad packed on Friday and Saturday, but Penthouse should have a good lineup on Thursday.

      Friday: Scores on Friday. Scores/Stiletto’s/Temptations/Lipstixx get better lineups as the crowds get better. Believe it or not, some clubs are much better during the day since they draw a higher paying clientele that doesn’t go out late and doesn’t like crowds. Scores likes crowds.

      Saturday: Babe’s. I personally think it’s now the second-best club on Bourbon. Keep in mind this is NOT an extras club (they strongly discourage it), so if that’s what you want stick with Lipstixx, Stiletto’s, Temptations … or even Scores.

      One fun idea could be Little Darlings, just to freak him out a bit. The girls there are super aggressive and openly proposition sex, so I could see that being entertaining for a bachelor party. Also keep in mind Little Darlings is a predominantly black strip club – if that matters one way or another. Temptations has some cool rooms upstairs reserved for larger parties, so you might at least ask about those.

      All in all, remember that the best part of Bourbon Street is bar (and strip club) hopping. There are tons within just a few blocks. Don’t be too militant and try to plan everything out – just go with whatever happens. Good luck!

    Knock Penthouse down another notch. After all the good reviews of this place, I was really disappointed. Forget this place, don’t go! It’s just like every other tourist trap French Quarter club. Yes, some the girls are hot but their attitudes are terrible. Never ever give Katarina any of your money. She has dark hair and asian looking eyes even though she is russian. Worst experience ever in a club. Did the upstairs, 20 mins, $125, she gave me about a 1 minute lap dance and I could swear the bouncer cut it short. She told me to stop grabbing her breasts, I barely bumped them. Then after I wouldn’t touch her because she was clearly nuts, she called me weird and strange. All she did was sit next to me and talk. I’ve never gone to management to complain about a dancer but I did this time. Total waste of money and time. Really upset after this experience. I had thousands to spend and this dumb girl ruined it. Also, the dancers really weren’t astronomically better looking than other nearby clubs. Some were old, some had fat on their stomachs. I guess this place has really gone downhill after a good year or so. The dancing on the main stage stinks because these chicks are so stuck up, they feel like the don’t even have to dance in front of you on the rail. There’s enough dummies there that will tip for no reason. Sometimes 3-6 girls were just standing by the bar not approaching or talking to anyone. The only chance you have in this club is if you’re a really good looking guy, otherwise the dancers will straight up ignore you. The average and below average girls will talk to you, but I can get average looking girls in a much cheaper, friendlier club with at least full contact lap dances. Again, don’t fall for the positive reviews of this place, I think the club might be writing them.

    Scores is ok, but its not like the SCORES in New York. GUY owns this club…has the four club that stink on Bourbon. Temptations, Scores, Lipsixx and ick Stillotes.

    Now the Penthouse Club…they are crashing. Can I just find a good local strip club I can enjoy? We have none. HELP.

    • The rate of turnover for any strip club on Bourbon is high. However, July/August/September is horrendous for tourism in New Orleans. July is okay (just okay … definitely not good), since you’ve got the 4th and Essence Fest. Maybe things will pick up – but I wouldn’t count on it. The clubs will improve in October. The summertime always sucks.

    • The entrance to the Party Rooms is to the left of the entrance to the VIP rooms (or the $30/song rooms). I think they still go for $150/20 minutes, although most dancers will request an additional tip.

      They are in a separate room and fully private.

  29. will be in NOLA next year with a bunch of gal pals – are there any good clubs with male dancers for us to visit?

    Like

    • As far as male strip clubs go, your options are limited. I’m not very familiar with the male strip club scene in NOLA and I’ve never been to one, but here’s what I can tell you.

      There are two gay bars, Oz (link) and The Corner Pocket (link), that are both gay strip clubs. Then there’s LA Hard Bodies (link), which is a male strip club that caters to women – but they also get gay customers. It’s on the West Bank, which means you’re going to have to either take a cab or drive if you’re staying downtown.

      Your other option might be to have a stripper service to send dancers to your hotel room (or wherever you’re staying). Again, options for women are limited but I was able to dig up a few possibilities:

      http://bachelorpartyneworleans.com/bachelorette-parties
      http://www.omenneworleansstrippers.com/
      http://www.breathtakers.net/strippers_in_louisiana.html

      **NOTE: I cannot verify the legitimacy of any of the above sites. I’ve never used them, and I can’t vouch for them. I’m sure you’ve got nothing to worry about … just use caution when pre-paying for anything and be aware if something something sounds fishy.

      Good luck!

      Visions Men’s Club is really the only strip club that draws a consistent crowd throughout the day, but even Visions has been kind of off lately. Thursdays and Fridays aren’t bad during the day; Saturdays are usually good (at Visions). Most of the strip clubs on Bourbon, that I know of, don’t even open until around 6pm. Maybe Hustler or Barely Legal? I know those places are total rip-offs, but that might be your best bet during the 4pm-5pm hour.

    Just got back from NOLA with a few guys. Your site was a big help before we went. Obviously everything was slow. Went to Visions Monday night , very dead but cheap drinks and limited talent but found one i liked and got some good mileage in the VIP 30 mins for only $100 to club and $150 to girl plus tip. Went to Lipstixx late one afternoon, the place is truly a shithole, didn’t get offered anything special but at least they had 2-1 beers. no talent at all, but i think it was because of the time, as we were leaving and the girls were coming it to work the evening it seemed to improve. Gets the award for the worst bathroom ive ever been in and ive been in some bad ones. Lastly went to Stilettos wed night and it was a great time, decor not pretty but plenty of attractive girls willing to do pretty much anything upstairs for 15 min for $200, didnt even have to spring for the 30 min rooms. Very reasonable and we all took advantage. Drinks were crazy price for a place like this, but at least no cover. Overall i think we did pretty well, places were very slow cause of time of year and during the week but in some ways i think it helped because prices were very reasonable for what we got.

    • I wasn’t strip clubbing in the ’90s, and really not much of the 2000s. I can’t say for certain, but I think it has/had more to do with the club itself rather than the era. People are more likely to get dressed at Penthouse or Rick’s Cabaret than Stiletto’s. There have always been dive clubs, where people dress casual, and there have always been the upscale “gentlemen’s clubs” where people would sometimes go after work and conduct business. Today, I rarely see anyone in a suit or tie. I’ll see people where button-down dress shirts, but never more than that. I think I’ve seen a couple of people wearing jackets, but it’s uncommon.

      I understand dress codes have relaxed over the past couple of decades, and this is especially true in New Orleans. We used to have tons of fine restaurants that enforced dress codes. Today, I think Galatoire’s is the only restaurant that still mandates that men wear jackets. I can only assume strip clubs are the same. Sorry I can’t be more help.

Well, DejaVu/Flynt had four, now three, so it seems to be the favored trend, or at least a way to sit on the valuable B-St.-address licenses and leases). At least The Guy could take advantage of running so many joints to take one at a time briefly offline for upkeep and improvements (that some of them needed badly last time I was there).

    You have mentioned elsewhere the high prices on Bourbon down to and including water at the price of beer — Would you say that this may be a case where the clubs on Bourbon mostly seeing themselves serving a tourist/conventioneer trade and their big paydays being associated with specific events and dates during the October-May season (Halloween, NYE, Football Playoffs, MG, JazzFest, etc.), have not much motivation to build and encourage return regular business?

    • Thanks for checking in. I have been SOOOO busy at work that I barely have time to eat dinner. However, I have a few posts lined up and ready to go. Keep an eye out – I’m reviewing two places for the first time soon!

      February is a great time to visit strip clubs in NOLA. The strippers are hotter and strip clubs have fuller rotations of dancers. Mardi Gras Day (Fat Tuesday) is on March 4, but the parades begin much earlier than that. I think the parades start around the middle of February, with the bigger ones later in the month. The daytime (or evening) is tough, though. Penthouse Club doesn’t open ’til 6:00pm. Rick’s Cabaret used to open at 2:00pm (and earlier on Fridays for lunch), but I think they don’t open until 6:00pm either. Stiletto’s and Temptations usually open around 2:00pm-4:00pm, but they might open earlier (maybe 11:00am) during peak season. Rick’s Saloon also opens at 6:00pm. I’m not sure about Scores; I think they open later.

      I’m pretty sure Hustler Club opens during lunch hour … that, or Barely Legal. Those places aren’t great for high mileage, but you’ll get a decent lap dance. I’m pretty sure Babe’s Cabaret opens at 11:00am (but maybe not on Sunday – Tuesday). That might be your best bet. And that new place Centerfolds opens early, so you might try there for some good mileage.

      Sorry I can’t help more. I rarely go to strip clubs during the day and am unsure of which ones still open early.

Maybe even Visions still (the $30 dances, not the $20 dances). Understand that every dancer on Bourbon does regular lap dances in order to sell VIPs. That’s just how the hustle works over there. But, in general… Scores, Temptations, Lipstixx and Stiletto’s will give you more mileage than places like Hustler Club, Barley Legal, Rick’s Cabaret/Saloon, etc.

I would start at the “local clubs” on Bourbon and then work your way to Penthouse if you don’t like your options.

      And every strip club is overpriced. When the cheapest place has bottled water selling for $5 – it’s all overpriced. Visions is your best bet in that department ($3 bottled water—a steal!), but you’ll have to brave New Orleans East.

      Your best bet downtown (on Bourbon St.) is Deja Vu, Scores, Stiletto’s, Lipstixx, Temptations and Centerfolds. Clubs like Rick’s Cabaret, Penthouse, and Hustler Club are picky when it comes to dancer weight. Rick’s Cabaret and Penthouse Club are ultra strict on tattoos and weight; they don’t want any dancers that are too curvy. (They would put it this way… Jennifer Lawrence is fine, but Kim Kardashian — too curvy.)

      Babe’s Cabaret, Larry Flynt’s Barely Legal, and Rick’s Saloon are a little less picky. But all three clubs have mostly fit, white dancers. The other clubs I mentioned get the leftovers. Some of their dancers look good, others… not so much. On some nights, you won’t find too many white dancers there. But the good news is that none of those clubs have a cover most nights (save for Friday or Saturday), so you can move on if you don’t like what you see. You’ll find something you like.

      Off Bourbon, the only worthwhile club we’ve got is Visions Men’s Club. Visions has variety, curvy girls, thin girls, black girls, white girls… you name it. It’s worth a visit if the Bourbon clubs don’t satisfy. Good luck!

    Like

    • I’ve also wondered about (and asked) this same question, and I’ve gotten different responses. But this is what I’ve heard:

      Many dancers hate when other girls come into the club with their boyfriends, husbands, friends, etc. They think the girlfriends/wives are at the club to keep the guys from spending too much money, or spending foolishly. And the dancers are right. Unless your wife/girlfriend is into swinging (or threesomes), most will put a stop to expensive VIPs and private rooms. Since dancers make the bulk of their money with private rooms, you can see why they’d have a problem with this. Strippers don’t want to vie for the attention of customers, especially with the customer’s significant other; it’s often a roadblock to more income. But it’s not always the case, though. Some girls are more than happy to spend their boyfriend’s money recklessly, no matter where they are.

      Other dancers feel the female customers are judging them the whole time (specifically girlfriends of other customers) and give off a weird vibe. At least that’s what I’ve been told.

      Strip clubs used to ban single women from entry, thinking it was an angry wife or girlfriend looking to catch their husband/boyfriend red-handed. I don’t think they can (legally) do that now. (Same reason bars didn’t have phones (before the days of cell phones) … they didn’t want wives calling up and telling their husband to leave the bar and come home.)

      As for some dancers getting more grabby with female customers – I think that’s a ploy to get more tips from male customers. Some men bring their wives to the strip clubs hoping the strippers will do all sorts of freaky things to them, and that drives more tips. Some dancers make a lot of money from couples and will do couples dances, and others don’t want to bother with it.

      From my knowledge, female customers don’t get any kind of discounts or special perks. I’ve gone to strip clubs with female friends and we’ve been charged the same. Unlike regular bars, where the goal is to get as many female customers as possible (preferably young and hot), strip clubs don’t want female customers that badly. They’re likely to spend less, much less (particularly on lap dances). Lonely, single men are their bread and butter, so there’s no incentive to give special offers to women.

    • 1.) If you like thick and/or heavier women, you might actually try somewhere like Artist Cafe or Dixie Divas. They’re both located on Iberville, about a block off Bourbon. Normally I stay away from both clubs, but I’m not big on heavier women. The majority of girls there will be white and will be older, but they’re definitely not the best looking.

      Otherwise, I’d direct you to Scores, Tempations, Stiletto’s, or Lipstixx. However, these four clubs are about 50% black (or more), and some of the girls are pencil thin, so maybe that’s not what you’re looking for. Penthouse, Rick’s, Hustler, Barely Legal, Deja Vu, etc. won’t hire bigger girls, so don’t waste your time there. Visions may have some, but it’s all the way out in New Orleans East (unless you don’t mind the cab fare).

      I’ve never been to the Asian Massage Parlors, but know people who have, and they say most of those girls are older and a little heavy. So if that’s your thing – there are a bunch downtown. Hollywood Spa, Green Door, etc. Also, they’re mostly Vietnamese girls, so keep that in mind.

      2.) I understand wanting to get to the club during an off time, but there problem with the downtown strip clubs is they’re all on Bourbon Street. Bourbon is crowded until well after midnight, so even if the club is empty, people will see you walk in. Not that anyone on Bourbon cares who goes into strip clubs, but if you’re worried then be expecting that. If you want to avoid the club’s peak hours, then either go early (before 9pm) or late (after 1am). I wouldn’t be embarrassed at all. People like strip clubs, as evidenced by the plethora of them on a single street in NOLA.

    • Dixie Divas and Artist Cafe are both traditional strip clubs, yes. If those don’t have what you want, I’d suggest walking down Bourbon and checking out Stiletto’s and Temptations (they’re next door to each other) as well as Lipstixx and Scores (which are near each other). Those clubs usually have free admission on weekdays, so you’ve got nothing to lose by checking in. There are two other places called Big Daddy’s World Famous Love Acts and Live Sex Acts (yes, both are VERY skeevy)… will probably have older, heavier girls.

      The Asian Massage Parlors (aka “rub and tugs”) are… complicated. You walk in, and you’re just paying for a massage and table shower. HOWEVER, any extras beyond that could change everything. Yes, full service is available. Happy endings are available. They are not required. The massage / table shower is $60. Any other “activities” cost extra. I have never heard of any stings or arrests of customers at the AMPs downtown. Some of the owners of AMPs in New Orleans East and Kenner have gotten in trouble, but none of the customers (to my knowledge). If it makes you uncomfortable, don’t do it. But there are illicit things that go on in strip clubs too, just like in the AMPs.

But what the doorman told me… every 20 minutes or so, a couple would get on stage on start “getting it on with each other.” I don’t know if anyone had sex up on stage or not, because I left shortly after I walked in. I will tell you they had a bed on the main stage. It’s dark and dingy inside, with those cheap, metal folding chairs you’d find in an auditorium. I can’t remember if I’m confusing Big Daddy’s with another place on Bourbon, Live Sex Acts. They’re both free admission, but drinks are ridiculous ($7 or $8 min. for one drink).

        I’m not sure if any club specifically hires older and/or heavier women. The top-end clubs on Bourbon (Penthouse, Rick’s, etc.) get their pick on the bunch, and draw the younger, slimmer, more attractive dancers. Then clubs like Hustler, Babe’s Cabaret, and Barely Legal draw the best dancers that weren’t taken by Penthouse and Rick’s. The rest of the bunch gets what’s left over, and that’s where you’ll find the older, heavier girls (the girls that the other clubs don’t want).

        I don’t think it’s weird to ask what kind of girls the clubs have before going in, but many of the clubs are free admission, so you can walk in and see for yourself. The clubs that do have a cover (Penthouse, Hustler Club, etc.) probably won’t have many older or heavier girls, but the doorman will probably lie just to get you to pay admission. Same if you call the club ahead of time; they’re not very helpful on the phone.

    In general how rare is it to find a stripper in her 40s?

    • It’s not rare, but the industry tends to force out older strippers. (Unless she’s hot and in great shape.)

      Most customers want younger girls. The girls over 40 won’t get as many stage tips, won’t sell as many dances, etc., so they end up leaving the industry for something else. You’ll find older dancers at the lower-end clubs on Bourbon, like Stiletto’s and Lipstixx. You may also find older dancers at Visions. Some girls have no alternative to dancing so they’ll go to whichever club will take them.

    Trying to plan a bachelor party in a few weeks and was looking for an update on a good club to check out. Probably only getting one shot at it since he won’t do a club two nights in a row. What are your suggestions?

    • It depends on what you’re looking for. Are you looking to buy one of the VIP/bachelor party packages and get a reserved table/room, or are y’all just heading out to the clubs? I can’t comment specifically on bachelor party packages in NOLA, since every one I’ve been to has been outside the city. Generally they’re just a waste of money, except that Penthouse Club and Rick’s Cabaret get super crowded on Friday/Saturday nights, and you’re not always guaranteed a table or even somewhere to sit. Reserving a table ensures you don’t have to stand the whole time. How much “fun” are y’all looking to have? Some groups just want to pound beers and look at naked chicks. Some want dances for the bachelor. Some want aggressive, very hands-on dances for the bachelor. And some want more than just a dance. If it’s not the last one, I’d say Penthouse Club is (still) your best bet. I haven’t been to Bourbon much in the last six months, but Penthouse still has MUCH better dancers than the other clubs. Hustler Club and Barely Legal are two popular bachelor party spots, but I hate both clubs. If you’re looking for more mileage, I’d head for Lipstixx, Scores, Temptations, and Stiletto’s. I know those clubs just got busted for prostitution and fined, but they haven’t changed much. Just make sure you arrange everything with the dancer before committing to the champagne rooms.

      Strip clubs after Mardi Gras can be good. The strippers make a ton of money, so some of them take the rest of the week off. But you should still see a good lineup. Good luck and happy clubbing!

    Are there any clubs that are female friendly? I’m a bi-woman and want to experience the clubs but not get treated like a tag along girlfriend. Basically I want to have the same experience as any guy would and not have some timid “we treat girls differently because they can’t handle it.”

    • I would look at places like Penthouse Club and Rick’s Cabaret. I’ve seen lots of female guests at both clubs. Hustler Club also has women customers, but that place sucks, and the dancers will be more interested in selling your boyfriend an obscenely overpriced VIP (and might see you as a hindrance to that). Visions is pretty easy going and I see female guests there from time to time.

      I would stick with Penthouse. The dancers are experienced with female customers, especially first-time female customers. (I’m not sure if you’ve been to other clubs before.) A lot of men who want their girlfriends/wives to come out to the clubs with them will take them to Penthouse first. Penthouse is the nicest and cleanest club and has the best looking dancers, so that’s the best gauge to see if they’ll like the clubs or not.

      I’ve heard that some clubs will refuse entry to single women with the idea that it’s an angry wife/girlfriend looking for their husband/boyfriend. I don’t know if any clubs here do that, but I’ve heard it happens in other cities.

      I think you’ll be fine. You sound like you’ve got a great attitude, and it’ll be appreciated. There are women who are dragged along by their boyfriends and they (the girlfriends) really don’t want to be there, and it shows. And then there are girlfriends who tag along because they don’t trust their boyfriends (out of jealousy or suspicion) and that’s the worst scenario. They’ll make passive aggressive remarks to the dancers, or complain about how much money their boyfriend is spending, blah blah blah.

      Enjoy yourself, and happy clubbing!
