The upstate New York town of Rochester has had its ups and downs; but through it all has had a pretty good strip club scene.
During cold winters and economic downturns, residents of Rochester, New York have visited the local strip clubs to help provide escape, fun and excitement. This is a very similar pattern found in other upstate cities, as clientele of Albany’s strip clubs, Binghamton’s strip clubs, and Syracuse’s strip clubs have done the same for years.
The gentlemen’s clubs of Rochester have helped many get them through the day or night. Of course, Rochester is a business destination as well and its strip joints have provided company and entertainment to thousands of weary road warriors through the years.
The following are the three best strip clubs in Rochester, New York.
Rick’s Tally Ho
1555 East Henrietta Road
Rochester, New York
Founded in 2004 by a strip club owner veteran, Rick’s Tally Ho is very similar to its “sister” club in Buffalo, New York.
Its stylish and sleek interior belies the ‘down home’ look of the exterior.
The owner’s involvement and influence clearly plays a big role here, as customers are treated exceptionally well; though it’s not high end by New York City strip club standards, Rick’s Tally Ho is clearly the definition of ‘classy strip joint’.
Rick’s Tally Ho seems to subscribe to the philosophy that they are there to provide an overall ‘experience’; with the strippers an important component (in fact, the most important one), but that there is more to it than simply seeing hot women strip.
In fact, you are just as likely to see businessmen discussing a deal, happy hour revelers unwinding with a cocktail, or sports fans in to enjoy the big game as you are to see people there solely to get a lapdance and leave.
As you might expect, Rick’s typically has a cover charge, and while it may be on the high end by Rochester standards, it’s very moderate compared to cover charges in other parts of the country.
On Sundays during the football season, Rick’s Tally Ho offers the NFL season ticket package along with a free food buffet.
Barrel of Dolls Salon
173 Anderson Avenue
Rochester, New York
Like Rochester itself, the Barrel of Dolls is gritty but solid. A topless only club, there is never a cover charge here and the drinks are very reasonably priced, even by Rochester standards.
Now, the Barrel of Dolls Salon is nobody’s definition of a ‘high end’ strip club. To the contrary; this is about as unaffected and bare bones that a place can be. BUT, this Rochester stalwart (it has been on the scene here since the late 1970’s), is clean, friendly and safe.
The strippers here definitely vary in terms of overall look, attitude and age, but, depending on your perspective, that can be a good thing or a bad thing, as you will never confuse this for a cookie cutter place. There is a feeling of familiarity here as it is essentially a neighborhood hangout that just so happens to have strippers in the midst.
3800 West Henrietta Road
Rochester, New York
The Klassy Cat is what many would consider to be the flagship strip joint in Rochester. Opened in 1998, the Klassy Cat has quickly established itself as the preeminent place for adult entertainment in Rochester.
It is easily the most popular place for parties. Many bachelor, divorce and birthday parties are held here due to the big party room, pool tables and special party pricing.
The menu here offers a very wide selection, from appetizers to even chicken cordon bleu. Though I certainly wouldn’t call this a fine dining establishment, the food is good, particularly when you stick with the basics with selections such as burgers and chicken fingers.
Of course, the primary calling card of the Klassy Cat is its large number of hot and strippers. At any time, there is usually about ten to twelve strippers on stage and the lap dances are plentiful and reasonably inexpensive.
So if you live in the Rochester, New York area or are visiting on business, and are in the mood for adult entertainment, visit these places and enjoy!
