How To Be a Gentleman at a Gentleman’s Club

Most people have their stereotypes about strip clubs, dancers, and even the type of people who hang out in gentlemen’s clubs. However, not every strip club is the same and there are ways to have fun with dancers, get lap dances, have a great night out with friends, and make it a great experience for everyone involved. If you and your friends are thinking about heading out to a gentlemen’s club for a bachelor party, night on the town, or just because, here are a few ways you can be a gentleman, even at a strip club.

Tipping Well


Dancers in any gentleman nightclub work hard. Determined to entertain and provide a sensual experience, they make the bulk of their money off tips from patrons like you. If you’re planning on going to a strip club for a night of fun, be sure to bring cash to tip the dancers with. Not only will you be helping them increase their income, but you’ll be sure to get some attention for it. The reality is that any experienced dancer will tell you that they remember great tippers. Because their income is based on their customers’ generosity, they go out of their way to spend more time with those who appreciate the show by leaving good tips.

Entertainers in strip clubs are no different than waiters, waitresses, casino dealers, or bartenders when it comes to working for tips. If you aren’t sure how to tip a strip club entertainer, leaving cash at the edge of the stage is a good way to thank a performer for their show.

Treating Women With Respect


The very nature of strip clubs can make it difficult to remember that entertainers are people with feelings. One of the best ways to be a gentleman in a club is to treat the performers with respect. By treating women with respect, even in gentlemen’s clubs, you’ll be setting a good example for other customers around you and can feel good about having come out for some good, clean fun.

Some great ways to treat an adult entertainer respectfully are to avoid heckling, leave a great tip, and follow established rules. Some clubs don’t allow you to touch performers, whereas others are looser with guidelines, especially when it comes to lap dances. Perhaps you plan to get a private lap dance. Instead of making assumptions, it’s okay to ask a performer what is and isn’t allowed. In asking permission for any sort of contact and keeping your hands to yourself, you’ll help the performer to feel safe and give you a better show.

Following Establishment Rules


Every club is different. It’s a good idea to be clear about each club’s rules before sitting down at the bar or stage. You’ll want to know if it’s okay to order a performer a drink, how tipping works, and what it costs for a private show. It’s also a good idea to know about rules around COVID-19 precautions, alcohol, and interaction with other customers. What might be okay in one setting could be prohibited in another club down the road. When in doubt, ask a bouncer or bartender about specific rules for any strip club you visit. In doing so, you’ll be well on your way to a better experience for not only you but the entertainers, too.

In the end, you’ll have a better experience in any gentlemen’s club if you know the establishment’s rules, treat dancers with respect and give generous tips. By doing these things, you’ll be more than welcome back and will likely have a great time.
