If you’ve got a friend or business associate who likes to socialize or make deals while surrounded by semi-naked women, take him (or her) to one of these Austin strip clubs.
The front façade of the building looks like the Las Vegas version of a beautiful palace. Inside, there is plenty of dark wood, a granite bar and monogrammed curtains. The well-spaced tables give the dancers room to mingle with the crowd. The bartenders and the dancers are gorgeous, and the place is clearly well managed and not at all smarmy. 501 East Ben White Boulevard; (512) 445-6655
One of the oldest gentleman’s clubs in Austin, The Yellow Rose has attracted a loyal following because of the beautiful women and the consistently delicious food. The lunch specials, in particular, offer steak and seafood at bargain prices. The DJs do a good job of keeping the place hopping with a combination of upbeat classics and a few unexpected choices. In addition to bachelor party packages, the club also offers divorce celebration deals. Ask about the free limo service to and from most downtown hotels.
6528 North Lamar Boulevard; (512) 458-2106
The name of the club demonstrates the owner’s confidence when it comes to presenting some of the most attractive dancers in Austin. Many of them are also excellent at the actual dancing. Loyal customers often praise the good attitudes among the employees here. A multi-level layout provides abundant viewing and seating options. Multiple big-screen TVs also make it a good spot to catch pay-per-view boxing matches and other big sporting events. 16511 Bratton Lane; (512) 238-7700
The ancient Romans would probably not be happy that their architectural styles are being copied in strip clubs like this one on South Congress. Beyond the overly dramatic entryway, Expose gets all the strip-club basics right: nice-looking women, good service and a friendly vibe. Drinks here tend to be a little more affordable than at the ultra-upscale places. Unlike most gentleman’s clubs, Expose is walking distance from a residential neighborhood, which may account for the generally laid-back atmosphere.
At lunch, the food is cheap too. 3615 South Congress Avenue; (512) 447-5353
This is the place to go when topless is not enough. The club features all-nude dancers, which means it doesn’t have a liquor license -- so BYOB. Since there are no liquor sales, the cover charge can be a bit steep. Regulars appreciate the wide variety of dancers and the fact that smoking is allowed here. It’s located on the northeastern outskirts of town, which is a slightly sketchy area. 3501 Andtree Bouelvard; (512) 929-3558
For clients who want to proceed directly to a strip club from the airport, The Landing Strip is a convenient choice. It’s located only about two miles north of Austin-Bergstrom Airport. Regulars point out that the club is always clean and there are frequent drink discounts and reasonable cover charges. 745 US 183; (512) 385-2878
