Philadelphia has its fair share of establishments that provide adult entertainment. Also known as strip clubs, these venues across the city include bikini bars (topless clubs)—which offer food and enough alcoholic beverages to qualify as a full bar—and all-nude clubs that have a bring-your-own-beverage policy regarding alcohol.

While there are a few strip clubs and adult entertainment venues for patrons seeking male strippers, the following feature female dancers and offer private parties.

Additionally, as with all bars, you must be at least 21 years of age or older to enter any of these.

Whether you're looking for a place to take a groom-to-be on his last night as a bachelor or you're looking for a place to unwind on your trip to the city, these adult entertainment venues are sure to delight.

This gentleman's club in University City offers a free lunch every day, which is an incredibly effective incentive to keep customers coming in during slow hours. Additionally, Atlantis offers VIP rooms, a full bar, food, and televisions throughout the evening as well as a variety of special events each day of the week.

Highlights of the weekly schedule include Monday and Thursday night football with complimentary pizza, wings, and drink specials; dancer showcases on Thursday nights; and a "smoking-hot happy hour" daily with a free buffet.
