I don't know if this is happening in Sauget or not, but if a club is paying city officials to keep other competing clubs out of Sauget, then that fits the F.T.C.'s defiintion of unfair business practices, and it's illegal.
WTF? Unfair business practices? What planet are you from? It''s a strip club, not a union or an automobile factory. Then again, is there a stripper alliance or perhaps NCAA., or even the NFL imposes their sanctions on strip clubs. Perhaps they are holding out for a new stadium deal...
I can understand why you called Penthouse skanky and PT's Sports (also known as Country Rock Cabaret) skanky. It does very much make you wonder if the company that owns those 2 clubs (VCGH) is engaged in unfair and illegal business practices since PT's and Penthouse are the only 2 clubs in Sauget. Makes you wonder if they're paying off Sauget city offficials to keep out other clubs, reducing competition in Sauget so VCGH can increasie prices. Google "FTC complaint" to file a complaint with the feds.
Well there are hot women at all the clubs. The problem at skanky PT's Sports and Penthouse (which are both owned by the VCGH company) is it costs too much to buy lap dances and luxury suites there. And even if you do buy a lap dance booth or a luxury suite, there are no beds inside them, unlike at Huslter and Hollywood. So PT's and Penthouse offer an inferior product at a premium price.
The Hustler Club's chagres just $20 per song for couch dances VERSUS PT's Sports and Penthouse's $40 per song. And Hustler charges $30 per BED dance versus PT's and Penthouse's $40, but there are absolutely NO BEDS inside PT's Sports and Penthouse.
Not only are there NO BEDS inside the regular lap dance booths of PT's Sports and Penthouse, but there are also NO BEDS inside the so-called "luxury suites" that cost $225 per half-hour. There are just couches inside the so-called "luxury suites" (which is a laughable name for them). In contrast, Hollywood and Larry Flynt's club both have beds inside their regular lap dance booths, and the bed dances at these 2 better clubs cost just $25 and $30 per song, unlike skanky PT's Sports and Penthouse where they cost $40 per song (or a measley 3 for $100). Did you know at Hollywood, you can get 5 bed dances for $100. So do you want 3 couch dances at PT's for $100 OR do you want 5 BED dances at Hollywood for $100?
PT's Country Cabaret and PT's Penthouse charge premium prices for an inferior product. Troy and the management need to visit Hollywood and Larry Flynt's Hustler Club. The lap dance booths at both Hustler and Hollywood have beds inside them, and the cost is just $25 at Hollywood and $30 at Hustler per song. Compare that with $40 per song (or 3 for $100) at PT's Country Cabaret and Penthouse. So PT's clubs charge premium prices for an inferior product.
Larry Flynt's Hustler Club's lap dance booths are also far better than PT's (a.k.a. Country Cabaret's) lap dance booths. No comparison either. And Larry Flynt charges just $30 per song for a lap dance booth that even has a bed inside.
You got that right jack. Compare Penthouse or any PT's club's lap dance booths with Hollywood's lap dance booths. Hollywood's booths put Penthouse and PT's booths to shame -- deep shame. And Hollywood's dances are just $25 per song versus PT's and Penthouse's $40 (or 3 for $100). Hollywood's booths are far, far better than PT's in all respects. PT's (a.k.a Country Cabaret) aren't even in the same class as Hollywood.
Yeah, I hate this club's regular lap dance booths. The seats and booths are horrible and certainly not worth $100 for 3 songs or even for 4 songs. Now their VIP suites are much better than their regular lap dance booths, but the suites at 225 are over-priced, so there is no good option at this club.
Yep this club and Penthouse should have a special night once a week or once a month when the VIP suites are discounted to 150 from 225. Other clubs like Club Vogue run discounted specials once a week. Lots of girls are worth 150 for a half-hour or 15-minute suite, but few girls are worth 225 for a half-hour or 15-minute suite. This club and Penthouse are losing money by not offering a special once a week or once a month. 150 dollars is better for the clubs than zero dollars.
The entertainer would get $100 of the $150 for a 15 minute suite but not have to pay the $5/dance fee to the club if you did 3 private dance for $100. Better for the girl but worse for the club which is why you won't see it. VCGH thinks its Sauget clubs are the premier club a in this area but that's because of their location and not their management.
Please contact the F.T.C. (Federal Trade Commission) and ask them to investigate why there is no strip club competition in Sauget, Illinois. Both clubs are owned by the same company, Denver-based VCGH. You can fill out the F.T.C.'s official complaint form on their web site. Just google "FTC complaint". Quote from the FTC: "Your complaint may help us and our law enforcement partners detect patterns of fraud and abuse, which may lead to investigations and eliminate unfair business practices. Complaints are entered in our secure online database, which is used by many local, state, federal, and international law enforcement agencies."
I agree with you 100 percent. Washington Park must be 5 times farther away from St. Louis than Sauget, yet there are 9 strip clubs located in Washington Park but only 2 clubs in Sauget (and both Sauget clubs are owned by VCGH). You can't tell me if Wash Park can support 9 clubs that Sauget can only support 2 clubs, even though Sauget is so much closer to the big city of St. Louis. It makes you wonder if VCGH is paying to keep other clubs out of Sauget, thus decreasing competition. Denver-based VCGH is a blight on the East Side. VCGH get the fuk out of the East Side. Stick to Denver.
This club charges too much for vip suites. If they'd lower the price to $150 from 225 for a half-hour suite, they'd get a lot more VIP customers. I've bought 2 suites here and at Penthouse, but if they lowered tthe price to $150, I would have bought at least 6 more suites over the past three years. At least give us a 15-minute suite for $150. They don't understand the Walmart principle. Walmart is the largest retailer in the country by sales volume because of their competitive prices. Sauget's sister clubs like PT's in Brooklyn charge 150. That's the problem when you have the Denver-based company VCGH owning just about all the clubs in 3 cities on the east side: Brooklyn, Sauget, and Centreville. Don't let VCGH into Washington Park.
Do the private areas have a couch? Or is it just chairs. I know Penthouse has a couch in the private area. As for the comments on the theme, it doesn't matter as long as the ladies are attractive and affectionate.
I don't get the complainers, this place is different and for that reason I like it. If you don't like the theme so much than head over to the other clubs in the area. This is a new and fun atmosphere they are creating and I very much like it.
It's been awhile since I've been to this club and I was pleasantly surprised by the new theme. Like the new decor and music. Like the new shot glasses and mugs. Dancers were great too. Penthouse and this club always have the more attractive dancers than any of the other PT's club in the area. Smart move by PT's to change the theme of the club and don't worry its still a great place to watch a ballgame. Hey if your into the gangsta type club then by all means head over to Brooklyn or pretty much any other club in Wash park. They will take care of you!!!
Maybe bi-racial would be more accurate. I referred to a person as a black guy in front of another black guy one time and he promptly told me that he was a colored guy. I do not keep up on which word is currently politically correct. As long as I don't use the N word, I should not offend anyone.
You won't be disappointed with Summer. She is probably the best of all the colored girls that dance there. While we're on the subject, does that massage girl named Jackie still work there? I have not seen her lately. She is a real attractive colored girl with a nice body. She looks a lot like a dancer with the stage name Robin that danced there several years ago.
The waitresses can do private dances and suites but they r more expensive than the dancers. With dancers its 1 song for $40 and most do 3 songs for $100, a 30 min suite is $225 and an hr suite is $450. With waitresses 1 song will cost u a crazy $150 and a 30 min suite is i think something like $280 and the hr suite is something like $520. Most of the waitresses will do them but there r a cple that wont.
The private dance area is chairs and the suites r couches. Yes its just the theme thats changed, but really barely anything is different, they just added a cple things, i dont know what all these people r talking about, its almost the same.
It's too bad they destroyed this club. We'll leave you redneck hoosiers to "rock out" to lame ass country pop music. What a bunch of retarded bullshit. LOL. I'll listen to gangsta rap all day long rather than listen to Taylor Swift and Achey Breaky Heart.
This is what will happen! The young and good looking gals will either go to penthouse or another club, this place will become an inbred fest and it will either go back to a sports theme or close it's doors for good. There's noway a country bar will make it in sunny east St. Louis. This could be the biggest mistake in strip club history.
Yep, after the big drawing the customers all poured out the door. I was one of them, so I don't know how many people were left for the rest of the night. I have to say, I just don't get the thinking here. But since they really didn't spend very much cash on the few changes that were made, it will be easy to switch it all back again in a few months. The grand opening should have been April 1st, so if it didn't work out they could always say it was just a big April Fool's joke.
This is St. Louis not El Paso Texas! Why would you open a country strip club with a mechanical penis? There was about 400 ppl there last night drinking one beer and as soon as they gave the grand prize it was a ghost town. Since I'm not into country music and im not in El Paso Texas I'll pass on this atmosphere and bar. Horrible idea
Super terrible idea about the country theme. But i think for the most part the same girls. Although they did stop in and tell the fat girls they had to lose some weight or else they had to go. And also told the too skinny girls to gain weight or else they had to go. But you know this business is a lot of turn over anyway. Only girls that seem to stay are for a while are the ones who can keep regulars. Which is not many.
"Sports" no longer exists. The club is closed this week for remodeling (whatever that's going to amount to... you can't exactly remodel a club in one week, so don't expect anything to be cleaned up or shiny and new here.) When they reopen I expect the same crew of girls. The food menu will be new (again, I can't imagine much of a difference here) and I assume you'll be assaulted with horrible country music during every set. I'll be over at Hollywood or Penthouse, so I guess it won't make much of a difference to this customer!
Turning this place into a country-themed titty bar has to rank right up there with destroying the Diamond Cabaret as one of the worst ideas of all time. I fucking hate country music, so for that reason alone I will never come back to this club. (I've been coming here for around 25 years.) I really don't see why you would want to alienate such a huge segment of your business. The clubs should cater to a wide customer base, not a small niche. Who has more money, rednecks in pickup trucks or businessmen in suits?
haaaaa..... Yes i agree also with all the post. This place needs to get cleaned up. Although some of the girls cover themselves with that antibacterial hand sanitation stuff. Guess that helps. I mean it is what it is and ton clener here than rozys. But right ....Cleaning it once is one thing. Dude you got to keep it clean tho. I doubt much will change now with the name change. Except that is will scare the hot ones away. And the waitresses have to line dance so i have heard ?Absolutely crazy what a waste of time! Hate it!
this place is dirty and gross the mens bathroom with the keg urninals is a shit installation nothing is straight plumb or level changing to country western theme will drive most girls away and what with the people line dancing insane its a strip club nothing more
I have to agree, this place is filthy. The girls walk around this place then get on stage and lie down. Next they rubs their tits in your face. Hell you might as well lick the floor. The girls wipe off the pole, but I've never seen the stage cleaned. But this place is a whole lot cleaner than Centerville !
I was in this place not to long ago. Did a suite with a lovely lady. Had a great time but at the end of the session i had to turn my light on on my phone to find an ear ring that the dancer had lost. In doing so i realized how dirty this place is. And mouse poison on the floor behind the couches? My honest opinion of this place is a good one but they really need to clean it up. Private dance area and the suite area. If that's that area that brings in all the $ well then it needs to be in tip top shape. As for all the dancers here i think they deserve for the place to be held to higher standard. Most of the girls seemed nice and seemed like that's the least the club could do for them.
