Review of Flashdancers strip club in New York, NY, USA
Summary: This is a pricey strip club in Manhattan, but it is not necessarily up to level of the rates charged. The chicks are hot though!
No strip club website would be complete without a review of Flashdancers in New York. If you’ve been to New York City you probably know about Flashdancers, even if you haven’t been there.
They advertise the place heavily with small signs posted on top of taxis. It’s funny seeing titty bar advertisements in Times Square as families make their way to the latest Disney on Broadway mess.
Flashdance was a popular movie back in the eighties based on the story of a female steel worker in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Flashdancers is nothing like that movie or any of the strip clubs in Pittsburgh.
Flashdancers calls itself “New York’s finest strip club.” I don’t think it’s anything close to that. For a high end corporate strip club Rick’s Cabaret is probably better. For the kind of down and dirty place you might expect if your idea of New York comes from the 1980’s, then someplace in the Bronx would probably win.
The truth is that Flashdancers is middle of the road. It’s also in the middle of the city. It’s easy to find and you can get there on foot, by subway, or in any of the taxis that advertise the place on their roofs.
The cover charge at Flashdancers changes. If you show up before 5:00 pm you get free admission. Between 5:00 and 8:00 pm you pay $10. After 8:00 pm you pay $20. You can get a discount if you get a flyer from one of the guys or girls they pay to hand the things out in Times Square, but if you’re scrimping on money, a Manhattan strip club is probably not the place for you.
Drinks are somewhat expensive but you expect that in Manhattan. A beer is ten bucks or more. Mixed drinks costs even more than that. Everyone in the club usually tips the waitresses several bucks with each round of drinks too.
The club isn’t all that big or great as I said. They do have a lot of dancers, and they tend to all be decent to good looking. You get a nice mix too. There are white dancers, black dancers, Asians and some Latinas. As is normal there are plenty of Eastern European women too who are capitalizing on what they have.
The best thing about Flashdancers is the women. They are all pretty hot. Some might even say there are real stunners and stars on the staff. I wouldn’t necessarily agree. The dancers only get topless, but that’s not the fault of the club. That’s a Manhattan rule which like most regulations on titty bars around the world is weird.
A lot of Wall Street guys come to Flashdancers and drop huge amounts of money. That doesn’t necessarily spoil the place for normal guys, but it does set the stage for the kind of high prices you might expect in Manhattan. For example, the Champagne room costs $600 an hour for the house plus any dancers who go in there with you expect tips on top of that. Even with those high costs, there is no sex in the champagne room. None.
The crazy thing about this New York City strip club is that it gets so crowded that you can find yourself sharing the champagne room with as many as five or six other guys! Seriously. That’s not exactly the VIP treatment by anyone’s standards.
There is a real VIP room at Flashdancers called “the blue room” but that costs a whopping $1500 to start, plus the dancers expect even higher tips. Still, it’s not much more than a place to hang out and spend a lot of money.
Besides the Wall Street guys, Flashdacners also attracts a lot of tourists. As you might expect this also contributes to the environment and probably the prices too.
Flashdancers is owned by the same people as Private Eyes. Private Eyes is actually a slightly nicer club in my opinion but Flashdancers clearly gets the better looking girls on average.
To be fair Flashdancers moved to a new location on West 45th Street. They left the old location on Broadway where they were set up for years. I think the place flooded and even caught on fire once. I guess they figure it’s time for a change. I think everything at the new location will be pretty much the same as it always was, but if I’m wrong I’ll update this review.
Flashdancers is located at 320 W 45th St, New York, NY USA 10036 (MAP HERE). The club is open every day from 12:00 PM to 4:00 AM. The phone number is 212-315-5107. The website is http://www.flashdancersnyc.com/.
