After 23 years in the game, we here at Showgirls Brisbane have picked up a few pieces of valuable advice along the way when it comes to having the best night out possible and thought it would be helpful for us to pass them along to you!
Here are a few “do’s” and “don’ts” to make your strip club experience truly unforgettable.
1. Book In Advance For Packages/Events
The very last thing you want to hear after gearing up for a night out with your mates, is that all the VIP booths are booked out. This is often a reality, especially on Friday and Saturday nights when we are at our busiest.
To avoid disappointment, we recommend booking at least a week in advance if you are planning on getting a VIP booth or package. Of course, our helpful staff will always do their best to accommodate last-minute plans, but the more you can plan ahead the more you will be guaranteed the night of your dreams.
2. Get Cash Out Before Arriving
Continuing with the theme of “plan ahead”, we strongly recommend getting cash out before arriving. Our venue is equipped with its own ATM machine however to avoid lining up, additional fees, and the off-chance that it may not be working (or that our bar staff don’t have the right change to break notes) it is advisable to ensure you’ve gotten some money out beforehand.
This can also help with sticking to a budget / allocating a specific amount for spending on the night.
3. Tipping Girls On Stage
It is very important strip club etiquette to tip our dancers when they are performing on stage for you. Dancers rely on cash tips and lap dances from patrons to make their money. If you are in our venue and benefitting from the show on stage, it is polite to tip the dancer for her services
We also have specific “tipping chairs” set up around the stage – if you are sitting there with your friends and enjoying a few drinks, make sure you use the area as intended and show the girls your appreciation.
4. How To Choose The Perfect Lapdance For You
Sometimes, especially for first-time strip club attendees, it can be overwhelming (and intimidating!) when it comes time to choose who to take for a lap dance. Some people may prefer to make this choice based purely on their own aesthetic preferences, but for a truly rewarding and intimate experience, we recommend taking the time and chatting to several girls before making your decision.
This allows you to find common interests and make a unique bond with a girl who is the perfect fit for you, resulting in a far more fulfilling and enjoyable lap dance. It may be a cliché, but sometimes you really will be surprised what you find without judging a book by its cover.
5. Don’t Use Your Phone Near The Stage
When inside a strip club, it is best practice to avoid using your phone at all and turning it off before entering if possible. If you do need to use it once inside, we recommend placing the phone with the camera facing down onto a surface i.e., on a table or on your lap, while using it. This way, there can be no misunderstanding or concern about you potentially filming or taking photos.
We have a strict no photos/recording policy in place to protect our dancers, and if you are found to be violating that you will be asked to leave our venue.
6. Follow The Rules & Respect Our Girls
While strip clubs create a magical atmosphere where reality can melt away, it’s important to remember there are still rules and regulations in place. These are to protect our dancers, as well as our customers and staff.
If you are unsure of what is allowed, it is always better to ask than to assume. Our girls are always happy to answer any queries you have and it is much better to check with them first. We ask that while in our venue, you treat our dancers with the same respect you would treat your partner or friends with.
7. Bringing Partners
There is nothing we love to see more than a fun-loving couple who want to share the strip club experience and have a great night out together! Our dancers love giving doubles lap dances to couples and are always excited to look after you, particularly if it’s your partners first time at a strip club.
Sadly this is not always the case, and sometimes the partner who gets brought along is not willing or excited. This creates an awkward atmosphere for you and for our dancers, as it can result in the partner being rude or standoffish.
To be on the safe side, make sure you have an open and honest conversation with your partner about their boundaries and expectations before having a fun night out together at our venue.
8. Dress Appropriately
When visiting our club, we ask that you dress as you would if going to any other nice venue or restaurant; enclosed shoes, long pants, a nice shirt – things you look and feel good in!
9. Ask For Prices Before The Dance
We recommend always talking to our dancers and getting all the information you need before going to the lap room. Ask our prices before committing to a dance to make sure it is within your budget, and to avoid any confusion and disappointment.
10. Leave The Dancing To The Dancers
We love seeing patrons having a good time at our venue, and with a playlist as lit as ours, we understand it can be difficult to resist the temptation of getting up and having a boogie. However, we do ask all customers, particularly female customers, to please treat us and our dancers with respect & not like just another nightclub. Our girls are the centrepieces of our club and therefore the attention should be on them and their dancing only.
