Cover fee- just recently went up from a lifetime membership of $5 to $7.
Drink- two drink minimum (non-alcoholic) of $4.50 each, then a waitress
puts on a colored paper bracelet (color changes daily) on your wrist which
lets them know that you've purchased drinks.
Dance Boothes- five were initially installed a few years ago. Now, two
more boothes were added three months ago. The boothes are the club's
version of the ones at DV and Lil D's except the entrance to the boothes
are draped with wooden beads which act as curtains.
Girls- have improved since your last visit as there are more young
girls working with a few lookers, avg and below avg variety tossed in the
mix during night shift. Two girls (Angel, Tiffany) have
remained since your last trip in '93. The rest are all new.
Mileage- with the advent of the private dance boothes, there's lots of
contact on the customers part(ymmv). Certain dancers do peekaboo's similar
to DV. How does the club getaway with it considering it's in san diego?
According to one of the floor mgrs, the club is under a "grandfather
clause" umbrella. Meaning, the establishment is considered a theater as
opposed to a "gentlemens club" which all the other clubs in san diego fall
under and subjected to strict non-contact rules. The Body Shop, along with
Les Girls, is one of the oldest clubs in town.
The club is now known as "Tens Showclub." I haven't been there in years,
but a dancer who works at the club mentioned that it's under new ownership
and has undergone renovations recently. Unfortunately, they've yet to
improve their hiring practices which needs renovating the most. The
majority of the girls are below avg in looks, and there's no contact
Star & Garter 2000
The 2000 was added when the club put up their website last year. The site
has been down for months. I was unfortunate enough to have attended the
club last year which explained why you don't recall your visit. First
thing, the club is in the ghetto. It's located in the bad area of town. A
few months before I visited, a bar room brawl took place between a
customer and bouncers. As a result, the wall beside the bathroom had a
massive hole. I think the customer was thrown against the wall, and it
collapsed as a result. The wall was covered up by a big advertisement
banner. Need I say more? To the club's credit, they're advertising on TV
and radio promoting $5 laps in hope to lure back customers. Of all the
girls that approached me, only one was decent looking. The rest were below
avg, fat and out of shape. Like Ten's, the dances are non-contact, and the
bouncers will let you know firsthand.
Dv Chains including Lil D's
Laps- their dances went up from $15 to $20 ever since the new law came
into effect at the beginning of the year. Lil D's in Lemon Grove held out
for months at $15 before succumbing to $20. The dances that are out in the
open couches (at DV) are non-contact. However, depending on the girl,
there's lots of contact in the booth on the customer's part along with the
customary peekaboos from the girl. I used to see a black dancer last year
at the DV on Midway who went by the name of "Naughty Nyla." She was
one of the better mileage girls in the boothe (by san diego standards) but
has since left for better clubs last I heard.
I hope this helps a bit.
Tijuana has much changed after the events of 9/11. Due to the longer
and more difficult border crossing many US residents stay away and the
entertainment business has undergone some "consolidation". Here are some
strip clubs which are still going strong and are worth checking out. In no
4th Street btw Ave Revolution and Constitution
Cover: $3 after 8, Beer $4, Table dance $5, Lap dance $20-60
As one approaches the club it is pretty clear that the managers studied
the US strip club concept well. After one pays the cover, a security guy
quickly searches you. The inside looks like many clubs in the US. It is
clean, table booths to the left, a bar towards the front side on the right
as you enter. The stage is towards the back, with stools surrounding it
and some more table booths further to the back. The bathroom is in the far
right and has private dance booths to the right and the DJ booth to the
left. The floorshow is one of the better ones in TJ and the lap dances are
given in truly private booths with benched. The management counts the
dances, but does not observe what you and dancer do during the dance. The
club runs frequent specials, so called flash-dances. The girls give you a
free table dance and entice you for more in the back. The lap dances run
from $20 to 60, but most of the time you can negotiate a full contact,
topless dance for $20. The 2for1 dances are often cut like they are in LA.
It is important, however, to make clear to her what you want and what you
are willing to pay. Once inside the booth it is too late to change the
deal. Most dancers speak enough English to communicate about the dances.
The talent level is decent, but many dancers have silicone implants.
Obviously all the blondes are fake, but the latinas are hot and real.
Fortunately the tattoo epidemic has not hit Mexico as hard as it has
Most dancers will not join you for private time at your hotel. Do not
come here if this is what is on your mind. You may hear stories of
Madona’s dancer who follow clients to the hotel, but this only happens if
dancer knows you well and is far more expensive than in the bars in the
red light district.
Madona’s is a sister club of Boleros, which is located in Pueblo
Amigo. Dancers switch back and forth between these clubs. Boleros had
opened a speak house with striptease this summer on Revolution (Plan B in
West-LA was not the first). This bar has been closed following the overall
decline in business after Sep 11.
Summary: Low hustle factor, nice dancers, mileage compares to the good
times at Jet Strip or TL, but not more. My favorite stage show in TJ.
Ave Revolution No. 1326, btw 9th and 10th, Tel: (664) 684-1629
East side on Revolution btw 8th and 9th. Cover $6, after 9, often
waived if business is slow. Once inside you can pick up coupons for free
return visits. They often have beer specials, asks the waiter for it. The
club place is large, has comfortable seats and is very clean. As you
enter, a round center stage is in the middle of the large club. Lighting
is good and the interior design is as close to a place like
4 Play as you can find in
TJ. Surrounding the stage are small uncomfortable chairs, but the rest of
the club has very nice lounge chairs. The best spot is towards the right
as you enter; this gives you a view of the stage and the large screen TV
at the same time. They have all Lakers games and always accommodate wishes
to switch channels if you prefer hockey over hoops. The bathroom is
towards the left far end and the private area is in a separate room
towards the mid left.
Lord Black is the best place for your first trip to a TJ strip club.
The hustle factor is lower than in most US clubs. The private dance area
is very clean and has the best lap capabilities in TJ. Table dances $10,
private $20 – 60. Like over clubs in TJ, they frequently offer “flash”
dances when the dancers give free table dances. These are good to check
out the girls dancing qualities. A lot of Mexican dancers may be hot with
great personalities, but sometimes fail to give good lap dances. Dancers
push hard to have you buy a $40 or $60 dance, but I always get the $20.
Before 9 pm all private dances are 2for1, but the talent level is rather
low in the early hours. After 9 the club runs 2for1 specials and, in
contrast to Madona's, the songs are not cut. Mileage is comparable to the
Jet Strip and SRI. As always in TJ extras are possible, but this is not
the place there this is easily available.
Summary: Clean, large. Good dancers at night and weekends only, good
club for the first visit in TJ.
Hotel Cesar’s Bar
Cover: $0, Beer $3, Lap dances $10-20
The strip club is located in the back of the hotel bar next to Hotel
Cesar on Ave Revolution. It is the only “typical” revolution bar I can
visit. The hustle factor is low, no transvestites work here and it is
reasonably safe and clean. You get to the club by walking all the way
towards the back of the hotel bar. This bar is btw one of the better spots
on Revolution to chill, watch a game and drink.
A well lit, round stage fills the center of this almost square shaped
club. The DJ booth is to the far right and the bathrooms to the far left
as you enter. On the left facing the front wall is a simple bar with a
basic liquor selections. Table booths are lining the walls. This bar is so
small, that only 30 customers fill it nicely. The talent level is far
lower than at Lord Black and Madona's, but the mileage possibilities are
more of what one expects in TJ. Most girls have very engaging floorshows,
which are often unconventional. Private dances are to be negotiated
freely. The most one should pay is $20 for 2 full songs. Mileage is off
the chart compared to LA clubs. Extras should be negotiated before you
step into the both. Some dancers will go to your hotel, although their
main business is dancing.
Summary: The best sleaze without hustle.
Hong Kong Bar:
Primer Callejon Coahuila No. 2008, Tel: (664) 684-3116 (new # after
Cover: $0, Beer $2.25, Lap dance: $20 for 2 full songs.
This is not your ordinary US strip club. The place is located in an
alley between Ave Constitution and Ninos Heroes, just south of Coahuila in
the red light district of Tijuana, the Zona Norte. The bar is thoughtfully
designed and despite the sleazy neighborhood it is clean inside. As one
enters, the stage is straight ahead, with a cat-walk-like extension
pointing towards the entrance. To the left is a long bar, with TV and a
decent selection of liquor. To the left is the wall separating Hong Kong
from the adjacent Miami. This is a regular hooker bar, with girls chatting
and drinking with clients. Hong Kong’s girls mostly work both clubs and
there is a frequent walking back and forth. While Miami has action from
early afternoon to 3-6 am, Hong Kong does not start until 9 pm.
When you enter the bar, a waiter who guides you to a table most likely
welcomes you. I usually prefer to sit at the stage, or at the bar. The
waiters here never have ripped me off and are very helpful if you are
interested in a special dancer, or in any of the Miami girls who stroll
through Hong Kong. Lap dances are given in small booth towards the back of
the bar. These booths are not very comfortable and very few dancers in the
Zona Norte understand the concept of teasing. My recommendation is to
invite a dancer to sit with you for a drink (her drink will cost you
$6.50) and see how well you hit it off. Very few speak English well
enough, but you can ask the waiters to point out the ones who do. If you
like her, take her to a room in a nearby Hotel (Cascadas). The cost will
be $50-60 for the girl and $12 for the room. This gets you 30 minutes and
a sexual encounter with a stripper. Not all the girls will agree to join
you in the hotel and finding this out early on is important.
Some local customers are hustlers and may try to get you to buy them a
beer, or give them money. I always ignore these advances, and every time I
pointed this out to the staff, these customers were removed. Summary: Honk
Kong is a combination of Hooker Bar and Strip Club. The floorshow is
continuous and decent for Tijuana standards. For the more advanced Tijuana
traveler, more is possible.
Other clubs I will report on in the coming weeks: Playboy Club and El
Pollo Bar (Zona Norte), Penthouse and 5th Piso (Ave Revolution)
