This club has been sold to new owners.  The following review is from before the sale.

FrontThis is one of those neighborhood clubs that have been around for a while. As a matter of fact, it has been privately owned by the same 2 owners since 1976 and is not affiliated with any other club. There is free parking at the club, or you can simply park on the street.

From the outside, it looks like a regular bar. The entrance is on the side where the parking lot is. It's a nice comfortable looking place inside. It's not glitzy but very laid back and relaxed atmosphere. As you enter, the DJ booth is now to the right side and he will collect the $5 cover.

There is a stage in the right side room, as well as another stage in the left side room near the bar. On busy nights both stages are used.  The stage near the bar seems to be the main stage. The pool tables have been moved towards the left side of the room and the video games are now on the left side of the main stage.

This club is a full bar so you can order beer or hard liquor. The waitress was friendly and did not push drinks like at some factory clubs. You can also order some good food for lunch or dinner. Nic's (as the regulars call this pace) has a weekly pool tournament with cash prizes every Wednesday night starting at 9pm and the cover is waived. On Tuesdays, they have a 2 for 1 lunch special (2 for the price of one, so bring a friend) and $2.00 MGD and Miller Lite, all day and night. On Monday through Saturdays from 5pm to 8pm, Nic's have their happy hour. Every other week, they also have a Miller Beer special with giveaways and once a month, the Miller Girls come to visit.

Although there were not tons of dancers here, the ones that I saw were good looking for such a small neighborhood club. I didn't see anybody doing chair dances but I was told that they are available for $10. Since it is a topless with alcohol club, I would have to guess that it is no touch or very mild. This is not the place for that kind of activity.  Come here to drink and chat with your favorite dancer.

This is definitely the RJ type of local hangout. If you are nearby and want that cold bottle of beer while looking at "half nekid wimmin", try this place out. If you like small petit girls, checkout Cream and Luscious.


2.0 Cozy neighborhood type club.


2.5 Not bad for such a small club.


4.0 Very friendly. Talk forever.

Nasty Factor

2.0 Higher during the day.
