When you’re rounding up the crew and planning a guy’s night out, there are a few different ways the evening could go. The best kind of nights are the ones that take you to a place where the women are gorgeous, scantily clad, and more than happy to put on a sexy show: a gentlemen’s club. 

But before one of your buddies tries to argue that the neighborhood strip club is the same thing as a first-class gentlemen’s club, there are a few things you should know.

What Is a Gentlemen’s Club?

A gentlemen’s club provides an experience that’s worlds away from the one waiting for you at a strip club. Comparing the two is like trying to prove that a five-star luxury resort and a small-town motel are the same things – impossible. 

From the experts behind Bucks, here’s everything you need to know about the major differences between a gentlemen’s club vs. a strip club:

The Entertainment

Let’s get real – there are plenty of things to enjoy at just about any adult entertainment club, but what you’re really interested in is the entertainment. Beautiful ladies in barely-there outfits, baring it all and treating you and the boys to an R-rated good time – that’s what it’s all about. 

You can generally expect a gentlemen’s club to employ dancers that are of a higher caliber. Sure, there are plenty of dancers out there who you might not kick off a stage, but the dancers at a gentlemen’s club take things to the next level. Because a gentlemen’s club is designed to deliver a higher-end experience, it’s a business that’s in a class all its own. 

Guests’ expectations are higher and the club’s reputation is well-respected. This means that when it comes to putting together their lineup of dancers, gentlemen’s clubs can – and must – be particularly picky. Onstage, these high standards mean that every entertainer is bound to be unbelievably beautiful, with a jaw-dropping physique, impressive (albeit temporary) outfits, and more.

The Atmosphere

If you typically frequent local strip clubs, your first visit to a gentlemen’s club is bound to wow you. From the moment you walk through the door of a gentlemen’s club like Bucks, you’ll immediately realize that the ambiance is completely different than a strip club. Luxurious furnishings, clean and comfortable surroundings, and a classy vibe are the key characteristics of a great gentlemen’s club.

In contrast, most strip clubs keep things pretty low budget – we’re talking cheap tables and chairs, stained carpets, and dimmed lighting to disguise the especially rough spots. Unlike Bucks’ clubs in Philly, South Carolina, and Texas, strip clubs aren’t aiming to offer you a VIP experience… they just want you to come in, drop some cash, and head back out. But here at the Bucks gentlemen’s clubs in Dallas and around the U.S., we want you to kick back, relax, and be treated like a rock star (and of course, come back to see us on the regular!).

The Food and Drinks

Last time we checked, strip clubs aren’t exactly known for their five-star food. Usually, standard strip club fare involves a bland rotation of overcooked burgers, soggy fries, and tasteless wings. Pair that with some room-temperature beer, if you’re lucky, and that’s what you have to fuel you for the night.

But since a gentlemen’s club is designed to be the very best in nightlife, fabulous food and drinks are considered part of the experience. For example, Bucks Clubs offer a tasty selection of modern American-style dishes, including homestyle barbecue ribs, bacon-wrapped shrimp, gourmet burgers, and even T-bone steak. Our bars are well-stocked with a diverse mix of imported and domestic brews, champagne, and spirits, so you can toast your favorite dancer with your drink of choice.

So, you see, there’s just no debate when it comes to which is superior: gentlemen’s clubs are clearly the winner. From the fully-nude entertainers (and their extra-impressive lap dance skills) to the club’s ambiance, food, and bar, gentlemen’s clubs consistently come out on top.

Ready to see for yourself why a gentlemen’s club is so much better than a standard strip club? Bucks Clubs has gentlemen’s clubs in Philly, around Texas, and even in Greenville, and we promise that after a visit, you’ll never go back to a strip club. Our girls are gorgeous, our food and drinks are top-notch, and the vibe is the perfect combination of laidback and luxury – what else could you want?
