The range of NYC strip clubs includes classy cabaret clubs through to your traditional backstreet strip club with topless dancers and lap dances, ideal for a bachelor party or bachelorette party.

Strip clubs no longer mean seedy; this is our guide to the Best Strip Clubs in New York.

Rick's Cabaret

Rick's Cabaret is more a New York institution than a strip club. It has a steakhouse restaurant with a full bar and more than 100 dancers working daily, while Howard Stern has used it to host his wildest parties.

There are three levels, including a roof deck where you can escape the noise for ten minutes and take in the fresh air or have a smoke.

Meanwhile, the "Super Executive" package includes a personal VIP host and your tables of choice if you're looking to impress clients. The package includes complimentary admission (free entry) for up to 10 guests and two premium bottles of bubbly.

Gallagher's 2000

Located in Long Island City, an unobtrusive exterior gives way to a vast hall with two stages. One is free-standing, and the other is surrounded by a full-service bar.

Doors open from noon; this club offers excellent food, including a Friday afternoon buffet and a lunch special with $4 beers that includes a free sandwich.

There are between 20 and 45 performers each evening on the main stage, while dances are cheaper than you'd find in Manhattan. $20 will get you a lap dance, while $180 gives you the chance to enjoy a half-hour private dance in the exceptional Champagne Room.

Sapphire - Best Strip Clubs in New York

On first impression, this Upper East Side club has an elegant, sexy nightclub feel. The attached steakhouse, Primal Cut, looks like an upmarket eatery. Only the sight of exotic dancers drinking expensive cocktails alongside well-dressed customers gives away Sapphire's true purpose as a VIP lounge.

In the club, several adult stars perform on the two main stages, with many names familiar to those interested in adult entertainment on its rollcall. Happy Hour offers $5 cocktails between 6 and 8 pm on weekdays; however, many clients prefer to use the full bottle service at this high-class establishment.

There are also Sapphire establishments in Midtown Manhattan, Times Square, and Las Vegas.



While Hunk-O-Mania is tailored to the hen party crowd, just as many everyday admirers of the male human form take in the sights and sounds of this elegant establishment. Rather than having the feel of a dime-a-day strip club, this Hell's Kitchen joint is as glittering and high-class as anything Broadway offers.

The male entertainers are excellent dancers and will flirt their way through the club, meeting and greeting the patrons. Admirers of abs, bulging biceps, and tightly-packed thongs will be in heaven as they indulge their Adonis fantasies.

Hoops Cabaret

For fans of sex and sports, Hoops is one of the best strip clubs in NYC. Where most clubs in New York focus on girls, this lounge gives equal billing to sports. With nine TVs devoted to showing sports, Thursday night football is top-rated, as are Saturday nights and Sunday nights with games showing.

The private Champagne rooms are sports-themed, while the equally private balcony rooms oversee the central part of the club. A $20 cover charge makes this sports-themed strip club the ideal alternative to your average NYC sports bar.

The Slipper Room

Not everyone is comfortable at strip clubs, yet that doesn't mean they don't have an appreciation of all things sexy. The Slipper Room offers a compelling and intoxicating alternative.

Their cabaret shows involve excellent burlesque and circus acts with comedic vibes. Although nudity is concerned, the focus is very much tailored toward sensuality over overt sexuality. And the mix of men and women performers means plenty for guys and ladies of any persuasion to admire.

This East Williamsburg site is ideal for people wanting to visit one of the least pretentious strip clubs in New York.

The setup of seats at the bar facing the narrow stage makes this a much more casual experience than at many other New York clubs where a good time is a priority.

Happy Hour is every weekday between 3 and 6 pm, with beers and liquor costing just $4, making this the perfect place to catch up with friends, have a few drinks, and watch some dancing.

Regular special events include variety shows and fire breathing for patrons who like something different from their NY sex-themed nights.
