The outside of this club
looks like any other City of Industry strip mall club. Boring. However,
the second I entered to the lobby area, I could already tell that this was
not any ordinary LA club. I've been told that there is a dress code so don't
dress like a bum. There is a nice video store with booths to the left. I'll
cut to the chase and skip that part here.
I entered the club and WOW! This is, IMO, one of the best looking club
in all of Southern California. For those reading this from Atlanta, Dallas
or Denver, please understand that the quality of clubs in LA is on the low
side. I'm talking about the look of the club itself.
Although this club is small and
2 is more glitzy, this club has the Rhino warm feeling to it. Yet, it
is even classier than the one in
Oxnard. If anybody remembers
my old reviews about that club, you know how much I liked it.
This club is upscale without being big or glitzy. The design of this
club is fantastic. There are little mini booths that are open to the club
but very private. When I say booths, I don't mean the type at
or Bob's. I mean the type
at restaurants, except they are embedded into the wall. ALL the chairs are
the expensive, rollable, soft types of chairs. Since the club is brand new,
everything is brand spanking new. The couches feel like leather, although
it's probably imitation leather.
The stage is
very large for a small club. It just about takes up all the room. The floor
is similar to the stage floor at
Olympic Gardens and
is really shiny and might be marble. There is a couch in the middle of the
stage. This couch looks better than any couch I've ever owned. I wanted
to go on the stage and sit in it myself. Actually, it looks good but it's
probably not that comfortable to sit in. Who cares, it just for show.
Enough bull about the look of the club. When the club first opened, the
quality of the dancers were top notch. It has gone down a bit since then
but the lap mileage and stage mileage has gone way off the charts. You have
to balance everything and that's what they have decided to do.
The topless laps are $20 and the nude ones are $40. When they first opened,
the laps were only $15 but I knew that wouldn't last forever. They also
have weekly features from Thursdays through Saturdays. On the nights with
big name features, be ready for wall to wall, standing room only action.
Since the club is so small, they need to really pack it in to pay for these
The dancer tipout is a little like filling out your IRS forms. Dancer
keeps $13 from $20 for topless and $24 from $40 for nude. They also tip
the DJ 10%, 5% to the floater and 5% to the doorman. The house tipout is
$80 with 6 drinks minimum ($100 house tipout and 8 drinks at night). Don't
make me repeat that.
My fave dancer at this club is clearly Yasmine. I've been told that she
now works at Rhino Rialto. If you want to see what I like, physically, just
take a look at this dancer. For those hating enhanced tops, you might be
disappointed. I don't care. They all taste the same to me. But be warned.
This gal is not a nasty dancer. She's just grown that way. I tried to break
my 48 record but alas, they had to close down the club... and unlike the
Jet Strip which stays
open as long as you want to do laps, they close at 2am. Actually, they closed
at about 1:45am. They have 2 for 1 but the songs are cut. Oh well, can't
have everything. My only other complaint is all the Rhinos have very limited
selection for drinks, unlike Bob's.
One other factor to consider when visiting this club is that it is located
in what I would call a sex mall. If you want a drink, you can walk to Mahoney's
(which also has male dancers on some
nights). If you want to watch pornos, you can visit the
Rhino Adult Bookstore
in the mall. This bookstore also has glory holes in the booths. You can
use your own imagination on that one. If that's not enough for you, you
can go to the VIP hostess club a few doors down and sit with a girl for
hours for not much money. Unlike other VIP clubs, I've watched customers
take the girls from the hostess club outside to the bookstore. What more
do you need?
looking club with high nasty factor.

Previously Exotica, and located in the
strip club capital of the Los Angeles area, the newly named Synn Gentlemen's
Club has joined the rest of the City of Industry clubs.
There's ample parking in the strip mall where the club is located, including
another lot nearby if the main one is full.
As you enter this sister club of Paradise,
there is a adult bookstore section (see picture), a small lobby area, and
the actual entrance to the main club (see picture). This is where
you will pay your $5 cover charge (plus $5 for 1 drink) during the day,
or $10 cover charge (plus $5 for 1 drink) at night (after 7:30pm).
Adult bookstore with DVDs, magazines and
toys. There are also video arcade private booths with doors.
Once you enter the main club area, you will see the bar to your left,
then the restrooms, some sitting area booths, the dressing room entrance,
followed by the DJ booth, then finally the stage on the far side, with about
10 seats. To the right is a separate room for VIP lap dances, and
another VIP room with a stage, which is perfect for private parties.
On the opposite side of the room are the ATM machine and a small bench seating
area. Behind this seating area on a higher platform is the main lap
dance area. This area is behind a low wall and people in the main
room cannot see the lap dances. Also in this area is another tiny
VIP room with a comfortable lounge chair.
Entrance to the club area from the lobby
area next to the adult bookstore.
As for lap dances, they are $20 for topless and $40 for nude. The
VIP rooms are $150 for 15 minutes and $300 for 30 minutes. Currently,
there are 3 areas where you can receive VIP dances but look for more areas
coming soon after some remodeling.
There are a wide variety of dancers here from small petite girls to tall
girls and everything in between. For the most part, the quality is
above average to good and there are enough of them to satisfy most customers.
Lap dance mileage is above average to very good but not insane like some
of the other Industry clubs.
At the end of the day, this remodeled version is more upscale, has upgraded
their dancer roster and management and is ready for some prime time action
to take on the rest of the Industry clubs.
