In the best interest of the Gentlemen's Club industry and its patrons we
feel it necessary to make a few suggestions regarding Strip Club Etiquette. For you newcomers these hints might help you
achieve maximum enjoyment from your club experience. The Editor doesn't claim to Know-All but with over 30 years around
Gentlemen's Clubs of all types we've noticed a few things.
The Basic Nature of Dancers:
- While dancers have the same likes and dislikes as regular women they are the thoroughbreds of women. Combine that with
their open-mindedness and you have someone who is fun to be around.
- Dancers are there to make your club experience more pleasurable. They are beautiful, intelligent and alluring. Treat these gals
with respect. Communicating with a diverse group of men is not an easy job.
- Yes, dancers can be high maintenance. In the real world she could have the pick of any of us, but at this moment she is
choosing to spend some time with you. If you keep her happy; she will keep you happy.
- A dancer gets "Hit On" by 300 guys a night. If the club happens to be full of a tough crowd, she might have a shorter fuse
than a night where the guys are all charming and fun loving.
- Not all dancers are created equal. If one dancer doesn't trip your trigger another might. As with any relationship, a club relationship
will either mesh or it won't. When they mesh you will leave the club at the end of the night with a big smile. As with any woman, if
you say something really stupid chances are she will leave you cold. If you are "On A Roll" and are fun yourself, she can be the best companion
for fun around. Just remember she is working and makes her living by being the life of everyone's party.
- Something you will want to remember, she is not a hooker she is an Exotic Dancer. If she wanted to be a prostitute chances are she would
not be working in OUR Gentlemen's Club.
- A Gentlemen's Club is where you put on a high roller attitude. The reason we call it a Gentlemen's Club is you are
expected to act like a gentleman when in the club. Yes, you can just come in and drink, but our entertainment and
excellent atmosphere are provided by the dancers. Our door charge doesn't cover the dancer's income; you share in that expense through tipping.
Please take care of them.
- Tip the wait staff and bartenders, a Gentlemen's Club is no place to act cheap. If someone provides a service like making change or serving you,
show your gratitude with a tip.
- Always be charming and on your best behavior.
- While we don't have a strict dress code and all are welcome, try and dress upscale. A little hint: All dancers prefer you shave that five
- If you are going to sit at the tipping rail around the stage please have some bills available to tip the stage dancers. Have them out, don't
make her wait for you to pull them out! Expect to pay at least $1.00 per song while sitting at the rail. That means with three song sets you
will spend a minimum of $3.00 per dancer to be entertained. If you really enjoy a particular dancer feel free to tip multiple bills. That is a very reasonable
amount for the quality of entertainment.
- Feel free to mention to your favorite dancer that you would be interested in a couch dance after her set.
It is usually best to agree to meet at the couch room door. Don't keep her waiting and don't make her have to find you, it is much easier for
you to spot her.
- A Gentlemen's Club is a great place to entertain out of town clients. Quite often you will be still discussing business while at the club. When
a dancer visits your table it is customary to explain you are in the middle of a business discussion, hand her a dollar each and ask her to return shortly when it is obvious that business discussions are completed. She will understand
and no feelings will get hurt.
- Usually once or twice a night the flower girl will come through the bar. Feel free to impress a lady with a rose. I know very few women who
don't enjoy flowers. Don't over-do it, she would rather have couches than five dozen roses. It adds a nice touch to those six couch dances to buy the
lady a drink and a rose.
- Extra tipping after a couch dance issue... Quite often if a guy buys a $20.00 couch and she does a really good job you might want to hand
her another $5.00. It is up to you. Of course the best complement is another couch. If you really enjoy yourself it is proper
to tip a little something extra leaving the couch room. Whatever you do, don't over extend yourself. This means when she says would you like "ANOTHER"
means you just spent another $20.00. "Don't write checks your body can't cash."
- If a dancer joins you it is customary to ask her if she wishes a drink. It is also customary for you to tip a reasonable amount for her
time while she has conversation with you. Just remember for every song that plays she could be giving someone a couch dance at $20.00 each or 6-8 table
dances at $1.00 or more each. If you choose to monopolize her time, make it worth her while. Our club rules say she must move on within fifteen minutes, but
if you took care of her she'll be back.
- Please have fun when inside our doors. We want you to
enjoy your visit!
- Do not bring a camera or open up a cameraphone in our club. The camera will be confiscated and / or your phone held until you leave and your
- We like motorcycles at Scarlett O'Hara's however our dress code states we don't allow CLUB COLORS of any kind in the club. We would like
to have you as a patron in our club, but we don't want other customers to feel uncomfortable. Please leave the colors with the bike when coming inside.
- Please don't ask a dancer, "Do you date?" They almost always respond very negatively to this question. Just incase you have been locked in a closet for
thirty years, the term "Do You date?" doesn't mean, "Hey you wanna go for coffee after work and get to know each other better?" Most dancers are desensitized
to guys opening with that line and will shrug it off. The reason they are so insulted is, you have snubbed a very inexpensive $1.00 table dance, an elaborate
personal couch dance, any conversation to get to know her, and went right to, "Hey babe are you a prostitute?" You have just lost major cool points. In all
my years I have never met a girl who reacted positively to such a come-on. You come to our club to meet ladies, we hire dancers not hookers.
- Don't try and HANG AROUND OUTSIDE A CLUB AFTER CLOSING. You aren't going to meet a girl outside and chances are you will meet a bouncer who thinks
you are stalking his dancers. This can get very bad. You might not know this but the dancers get really scared at 2AM when approached outside. We
walk our girls to the car. If you try and follow a dancer from the club chances are very good you will be arrested by a POLICEMAN who has a very low
tolerance for this sort of behavior. If you can't get enough conversation that night with your favorite girl, come back the next night. Attempting
conversation outside will just get you in trouble no matter how good your intentions are.
- If your conversation turns bad with a dancer, chances are you managed to offended her. If you start a fight, call a girl a derogatory name
or treat any of them with disrespect, expect to get ejected from our club. Treating a girl bad will get you permanently ejected. Fighting will
have you thinking about it overnight in jail.
- Do not touch the dancers, even if it is just a quick touch. Club security is watching for touching violations, you will be warned once and the second
time you may be ejected. If the dancer doesn't respond negatively or if she responds slowly she may be fined. The dancer is caught between a rock
and a hard place. She doesn't want to have to tell you no, but she doesn't want it to cost her her livelihood.
- Keep your stupid comments to yourself. Making cracks about, "Man she has no tits", or "Hey look at the Gams on that one!" just confirmed
youself a fool to half the bar. With loud music playing and the alcohol flowing you talk louder than you think. You would be surprised
how much dancers overhear and it hurts their feelings. Even if you don't care, we do and you risk being ejected from the club.
- Don't swat, grab or touch a dancer or waitress' butt to get her attention. That surely will get her attention in the most
negative way and you will most likely be ejected from the club.
- Don't sit at the tip rail at the stage and not tip. Have your bills ready. If you choose to not tip a dancer get up from the stage and let
a tipper sit down.
- Just because you tipped a dancer $10.00 or bought five couch dances doesn't give you the right to say lewd remarks to her. Sure you have seen
her up close, but as with any woman you should always be conservative with your sexual remarks. It is uncool to "Go To Far".
- A Gentlemen's Club is the only place in the world that four quarters does not equal a dollar. It is way uncool to tip with coin in a Gentlemen's Club.
If you start running short of bills but have a stack of quarters head for the cashier's booth. It is there to convert that stack of quarters into useable
money. Don't ever try and tip a dancer with coins, this is a severe insult!
- Don't ever throw anything in the club, napkins, coins, anything. The only time you may is if it is "Your Turn" with a feature to toss a dollar
at her target. Throwing anything else will get you ejected from the club.
- A dancer is not a change maker! One of the uncool things to do in a Gentlemen's Club is pull out a bill and have a dancer make change.
You are supposed to be in your High Roller mode at the club, not in the cheap mode. If you don't want these beautiful women thinking
you are tacky, walk up to the cashier booth and have the cashier bust up your big bills. Take this seriously, pulling out a five spot and asking for
four in change is uncool! If in a pince the wait staff can break bills, but it is best to walk to the Cashier Booth.
- Don't attempt to drive home drunk. Always save
yourself cab fare. If you over indulged we will be glad to call a cab for you.
The management and staff wants you safe, healthy and back with a smile on your
face tomorrow night.
We have always welcomed women at Scarlett O'Hara's and accept them as equal customers of
our Gentlemen's Club. We hope female patrons welcome the dancer's company and attention just as much as the male patrons do. You should not feel
threatened by any of our dancers as none of them are looking for conflict with you. Please keep a positive and fun loving attitude while visiting us; the
last thing the club needs is a jealous wife or girlfriend starting a fight or insulting a dancer in HER place of employment.
We hope utilizing these concepts makes your visit to Gentlemen's Clubs more enjoyable. Please come and see
us often. We are waiting to please you!
