Did this place close, or change their hours? I was there today near 3:30PM, not a single car in the parking lot, and the place looks abandoned
I went there during the day a few times. what a joke. There's absolutely no girls that do anything. They had maybe three girls working. All ugly. This one looked like she was at least 50 years old and I heard she was the most popular one!! That shows how lame the other girls are. At night it's just a bunch of hood rat bitches dancing and wanna be thugs sitting around selling pills to al the hood rat dancers.
I was in Monday night. I had a great time and enjoyed myself. I met the owner Ken, and did a champagne room with a dancer who was very nice. One of the best times I have had in along time. The Manager was great and I will be back soon.
Congrats to this place, I had a great time Friday night and everyone there was pretty hot minus a few but I guess when you have 20 plus they all cant be hot. New management is getting the job done.
Kris blew smoke up the owner's ass. Hope the club does good now just to show the owner how bad he fucked up by getting rid of the people that made that club. Rob, Dre, Chuck oh yea Frank also thats when the club was fun
There is good news in Palmetto!! Kris was just fired today! Lets see if this place can be turned back around as it should be! Good riddance to that asshole!!
I never seen a club fold so quick... Great Job Kris
This place is a disaster. 10 customers and 3 ugly girls for the whole nightshift. This place needs Rob, Chuck, and Dre back.
For the love of everything good... PLEASE turn down the volume, I can't hear myself think. Loudest place I've ever been in. And maybe turn on a light or two, can hardly see the stage.
I am thinking about visiting the club this weekend looking for info. lapdance prices, hours, cover charge, etc..
To the Pondora Box management, my three friends and I are will be visiting in Palmetto for the spring break and we are considering to dance in your club, we would like to know the perfect time to see the management for try out. Thanks
Love this place...had the best time last Wed. and will be back for the Hip Hop night.
where in Sarasota is she dancing
If anyone is interested the daytime bartender (cute Blonde) is now dancing in Sarasota
what happend to this site
I thought i was in county prison this is the only place in town with more black girls then jail......
bartender on days is great tues, wed, thurs. manager needs to get rid of hope, she's a pain the ass dancer that does nothing but complain
Who is rob.... That's my GIRLFRIEND that bar tends during the day. WTF is going on???? Just kidding..... I go there all the time and I never have any issues with the bar tender or getting drinks anymore, I think she is great.... She is better then the old one with the fatt hips and azz... Woops............
I need some info! Is this place busy? Any money dayshift or nigth?
I can assure you that Rob is not dating anyone that works at the club. Too ugly for his taste. And he's married.
Sorry you have ill-fated feelings towards the club or me. I speak to John on a weekly basis and he has access to see who is posting anything about him or his club. Just ask him, Nice try Sherlock!
About time you guys got a new bartender! She is so cute and very attentive. Cudos will be back again this week.
the new bartender on days is off the wall, her name is Becky, worth the drive just to hang with her. Oh yeah, buy her a yagerbomb, she's great!

The place seems to be coming back, was in on saturday and had a good time. Can't beat the drink prices and no cover during the day. They need some more girls and back off on the $25 lap dance charge with $5 going to the house and girls will make more and more guys will come in.
Join us on Sat July, 28 for a Free Car Wash and BBQ
the club is great...very nice the design is the best i've seen in the area. Lots of girls but not to crowded. We had a blast!!! Lots and lots of attention. Champagne rooms rock. Will be back next weekend
Glad to hear that all the ex-papermoon asshats are now gone. They were just as bad as the ex-owner/manager, you know the no neck italian wanna be mobster who fucked everything up, John. Now all they need to do is get rid of the midget messican waitress who has the worst attitude ever and this place will be making positive forward progress. Good Luck.

Planning on coming by there this Friday night, Whats the Cover Charge?

What is the cost of the lapdances here?
Stopped by Monday afternoon the DJ was soooo fuckin hot I almost peed myself! Great music they know how to throw a party.
from out of town went three days in a row they didnt have thirty girls all togather in the time i was there even so nice club but no good girls
First time in Friday. Man this place is great. Lots of hot girls and great drinks the bartender hooked me up! Will be back again see ya this weekend.
Its still full contact full liquer. A lot of new talent...was in on Friday and saw over thirty girls. A nice varity loved the cute blond soo very friendly.
Do they still grind all over you when you get a lapdance? Or is it that 6 foot rule crap now? Thanks change is always good!
I just started working here and lovin it! Everyone is so nice and we have so much fun. Stop in and see me soon. xxoo
They have a great mix of girls and the crowd is very very mixed. Old, young, white, black, you name i've seen it there.
All these people sayin the club sucks are Lame ass people. I been going to strip clubs around this area, and none of them play enough HIP HOP or have any black girls. This club plays mainly Hip Hop, and has a bunch of THICK black girls. I dont know about fat but they are definately thick as hell. This is the best club in the Bradenton/Sarasota/Pal metto area that I been to. If you like Hip Hop and Black Women, check this place out. This is NOT a drug dealer hang out, those comments are coming from ignorant White people who feel like all Black people are thugs.
Things sure have changed. You actually have some pretty girls!
Jason you've taken the club up a notch. Great job you actually have girls working and everyone seems to be having a good time. Will be back on your shifts.
Jason the new manager is the shit!! Hooked us up with whatever music we wanted and took care of us at the bar! He said he works Sat day Sun and Mon nights. See you next week
I'm sure it was a misunderstanding with the staff... Come back by and ask for John he'll take care of you, and maybe you will have a better experience!
As long as john is in charge club will continue to go down hill, drives dancers and customers away by trying to milk them for every dollar he can get. new owners wake up and fire this idiot!!!
unless you like thugs, drugs & 'gansta wannabees.
Did that girl die on Sunday nite? The little spanish dance fellout she looked blue! Just wondering?
Hay John , 90 days till wayno's out of the BIG HOUSE and then we are on our way get the shots ready
There hasn't been more then 4 girls working at anytime i've stopped in! Don't waste the $7.00 drive to tampa or clearwater.
I miss the old club to, but in the past month I've been stopping in and actually having a good time (day time). granted not enough dancers but the quality has been good, I get a feeling that things are improving. I heard they are going to revamp the VIP area and as the word gets out number of dancers and customers should improve! Also heard they are doing away with those lousy bar stools!!
miss the old club TEMPS cleos has always sucked it only gets worse as time goes by i go to all the clubs some advise to the new owners run this place like a toy and it will break i could go on and on but you already think you know what you are doing
all the + comments are self posted the club sucks there is only maybe 2-3 girls that are even kind of hot the music sucks they really need to re think their business plan
Was in the club Sunday and saw the owner beat up some little spanish kids. Thank god for that because the music sucked and they only had a few girls. It was worth the admission to watch him smack those kids around!
Stopped by this afternoon. Got a beer. Nursed it for almost half an hour. Not a SINGLE dancer appeared, so I split! My advice? Don't bother!!
Love this club... Everything was great the place is so nice well decorated high class, the girls need work, and the staff is very friendly.If your into hip hop and big girls this is the place to be. I've been to clubs all over Florida and this is the best one yet. Keep up the good work I'll be back! Good lookin out John thanks for the hook up.
Beautiful girls. Beautiful club. Many thanks to John.
Jay Hill is working on Mon. Wed. and Thur. come have a drink with me. no cover drink special all day $3.00
I recently heard that the club had reopened for day shift. I stopped by today to check it out. The club looked different but I couldn't figure it out. I was pleasantly surprised...there were five girls that I saw(this is a change) and I was really impressed with the DJ, great music! It has been a long time since I've been in the place and at that time there was only1 girl and the DJ Mike was not very good. I've been reading the message boards and it looks like the new owners are doing something with the club. I'll be back especially during the day. I might even check the club out at night. I'll be sure to let you know what I find out.
New name, new owners....same club. I stopped in last night and was disappointed to only see 3 girls working and that is not the worst of it, when I received my tab there were A LOT more drinks on my tab than I ordered. I will not be back to this place and I will be sure to warn all my friends. BIG MONEY!
Try day shift the music and the crowd are much diffrent then the at night. Jay is the shit...great music. $3.00 dollar drinks
I stopped in yesterday for the first time. talked with rob and akira for awhile, very nice club. the music was great the drink prices cant be beat, but they only had a few girls. hire some more girls and you guys have a new customer for life.
The club is nice. Almost all rap music. All the girls are ugly and way out of shape. John the new owner is nice but evertime he came over to talk to us made us buy a round of shots. Easy up chief!
This place has only one skinny girl and the rest are fat. Not one has a normal body. They need some girls bad!
The club is now open from 1:00pm-2:00am. Happy hour all day free entry and $3.00 dollar drinks & beer. Dance specials 3 for $30.00. Lap dance are $20.00 Cover after 7:00 $7.00 21 and up Come check out our hot new staff!
have her call me or i am comming for you
no girls and the drinks are too much money!
i can wait till she comes back so i can come visit you all. haha
i see you. can you see me watching you? haha
guess you arnt quite as smart as you thought
what is the name of the girl with long black hair and blue/gray eyes. short and friendly?
I was a dj here up to about 2 months ago. It was a great club. The owner mark is great. The ladies are all sweethearts. I personally would still be there except for a change in management. John (the manager with the NY accent) and I do not get along well due to our personality clashes. I wish the best for the club, for Mark, and for the women. PS If anyone works in any clubs and knows of openings for a DJ, leave the club name here.
Ok went last night, very comfy place, very clean, the manager/owner not sure which was extremely friendly, he came sat with us and talked to hubby and i. the waitress was friendly and on the ball. the girls were friendly especially....i wish i remembered her name but she was i think asian....... my hubby took to the cute blonde.....so bad at remembering names... ....not bad at all for a sunday just wish we had gotten there earlier........i will def go back!
coming in 6/30 i hope this place has a champaine room i like it chilled at midnite
Has anyone been here recently? If so whats it like now, cover charge? how are the dances/woman etc... Thanks!
Stupid place for condo's!! This is America, everything is for sale. BTW, John & Rob ex of Bliss are back. Been there 2x, both times only BBW in the house, not my type. Nice club, very clean.
Does anyone know if this club is still open? I heard it got sold and is being built into condo's? thanks for your time!
Looking for the Philipino girl who worked here. SexyDiva, real named Nicole. Important to find her if you have a clue I would apppreciate.
I heard they are going to shut down and tear down the building to build condo's?
this club sucks! don't waste your time
I like the one DJ that works Sunday nights. He's nice. He came down and talked to me for a second before the Blonde manager lady told him to go back upstairs (rudely, I might add). There was a nice bartender and a few ok girls, but A LOT of rap. I asked the DJ why he played so much. He said that he gets tipped out by the girls, so he has to play what they like or he doesn't get much. I kinda felt bad for him since it seems like he was a rock fan after talking to him. Sounds like the dancers have too much power in this club. I like the Moon better. Management must make them dance to upbeat rock stuff over there.
Time to retire don't you think? Looking kinda rough alot of miles on that body. And this Trish chick looks like mr. ed with a bad attitude.
contact and how, friction lap dances
is there any contact at this club?
Hmm wonder if anyone from the club management reads these things. Yo, MGMT ... YOUR DJ ... yeah the guy who was there last night... HE SUCKS....
Well, they still have that sucky a$$ DJ on Fri nights. I was there just too see if things changed. It was really kinda sad because they had some nice looking ladies. I must've heard four or five of them bitching about the DJ, too. Anyone from the club wanna tell me why I'm being forced to listen to the same sorry songs over and over on Friday nights? I mean if there's relief in sight from this new Friday night DJ... Please, let me know. Otherwise, I might have to start going to Scoreboard or Peekaboo's.
Jack and Steve are both out state. I miss them both!
I was there Friday day last week and this place was awesome. Good looking women and the music was good too. I stayed until about 7pm. Great Club!
don't know jack or steve... old managers maybe? I think they used to have an old DJ named Steve....
What ever happened to Jack or Steve They knew how to run a club and not try to rip you off
Thanks for the compliment on the throw back rock style. My boss Mark and I both like it. If you want to come see me DJ, I work Sun night, Mon night, Tues night, Friday day, Sat Day. I am Justice's and Angel's ride to work so they are usually there the same days. Night shifts tend to lean toward the younger crowd, but I definitely like to throw in good ol' rock on my Fri/Sat shifts. Hell we even throw in some country sometimes when Danielle works with me. Darah, my daytime bartender, is awesome. We'd love for you guys who love rock to drop on by and party with us on Friday/Sat. We usually have about 4-6 girls on our day shifts. Come get wasted with us ... we party.
The girls here are bomb ass. I really like Tina. She's very pretty and is a sweetheart. I wish I had taken a thousand dollars to spend on her; she was just plain great. I also liked the new girl called Angel - also a total sweetheart. Justice was really cool too... plus she danced to some cool rock. Godsmack and disturbed... rock on sister.
ya puhleeze no more of that bubble gum shiot.... Fire that DJ that worked this last Friday... he sucked
Please no more spears music friday nights!
Great club... some good looking women. Some decent ones... very few that are below avg.... Only thing that is below avg is their DJs. They have one good one that works the start of the week and works Friday Day shift. I like going on his shifts cuz he whips out some of the old rock. ZZ top, Motley Crew, and AC/DC.. But they had a really loud one that worked Friday nights and he sounded good but his music was blaring loud. Now they have a sucky a$$ one on Friday nights. What the hell are they thinking ... he only likes Brittany spears I swear!
Ex Cleo dancer = ? just outta curiosity.... Ashley maybe? Hunter? just wondering shrek
the club looks nice.....but there are no girls here
Lindsey!! Go see her--she's awesome with a great personality-definitely the most intelligent one to talk to if you're looking for good conversation plus good looks. Champagne room should be closed off like the last one though-just a thought.
The Moon has a lot of inside problems that aren't visible to you. Stuff that the forum rules do not allow me to post. (Do not write about anything that is illegal. Do not write negative comments about specific people). They are there. I even got blamed for some of it when I worked there, but I work at Cleo's now and the Moon is still having the same problems. As for me, my new boss Mark is cool as hell, and I'm happy. I'm not accused of anything. I go to work, do my job, get paid, and leave without any problems. It's so nice and relaxing to know I'm in a good work enviroment. This is why Cleo's is better, and if you haven't been to our club lately, come back and check it out. You'll have fun I guarantee. DJ KiDD aka James
i need info on the naughty lady boutique up the road fom this club
Whats going on with manatee co. are they going to shut you down the word on the street they are gonna pass a law taking away the booze and 6 ft rule say it isnt so
Paper moon papermoon paper moon papermoon it dosnt matter how you say it they putting you out of business
Thanks for keeping us in your thoughts..hope everything is well. your personal vendetta with john should be worked out between the two of you not through the club. take care best wishes
Still happy to be away from that joke of a club oh by the way big fat stupid john i will be back in florida may 21 i will stop by and see you because you aint never were and never will be shityou took ass kissing to a new level i think you are a bully and a pussy ass coward happy happy happy making fat loot ps. just in case you are not sure its steve yhe old dj who worked there cause i know you are a little stupid
Stopped in on the way back from mia thought my old sweet granny was working
be careful with the batf they will be cracking down on after hour liquor sales for the up comming months just a concerned regular
Dont waste your $7.00
herd that the club was for sale how much ? if it was ran right it could be good
Club really sucks tampa is only 20 minutes away well worth the drive
The club is a pleasant change from the old building. the staff is friendly and the girls are hot. well worth the $7.00. a fun filled nite for the whole family
Sunday nite is hip hop nite and rap. Plenty of free drinks... The girls are ok but not very many of them. not worth going out of your way.
what a bunch of want to be's what do you guys care about the staff for? it's the strippers that make a club. strippers come and go sometimes its good other times its bad. The club is nice and the staff is there to kiss our ass because that is what we are paying for. Check out the club if you like something alittle more elegant then the other clubs around. If the could bring in a few more pretty girls this club would be the place to be.
This club has it all...Last weekend I watched a live sex show with two of the asian chicks, and this weekend I saw one of the girls get punched in the face by a man. Very entertaining! I'll be back for more.
$$$guy What John does outside of the club is none of your biz. He has been a positive change he is the only manager that gives everyone free drinks, and lets you get a little more from the girls without any problems. I'm sure he has even set you up a few times to! Keep up the good work
I've been going to the club for years...back in the day the bartender you are talking about used to be Princess. She used to be the best dancer in the club! She still looks good for her age and can still keep up with the younger bartenders. loyal fan regular
This club made me feel like I was home back in mexico. the bartender looked like my mother
The best club south of the skyway! so many hot asian chicks..... Stop in and check out Tai and Misty!!!! I've never had a club give so many free shots All in all a great club
Great new look same old staff....get some younger pretty new bar staff. The hottest thing in the club is the door girl. The dancers have inproved greatly...very, very, friendly they seem to go the extra mile for the right price. worth a stop in if you need some quick relief.
I don't think John is the owner, he is the general manager. He knows how to treat poeple right I went to this club with less then 40.00 and got hammered from all the rounds he sent me. The are so many new girls this place is so much better then it ever was. John's the man he sent me and my friends to the VIP area for free with drinks and had the girls take extra special care of us! If you are looking for VIP treatment on a budget Cleopatras is the place to be.
I agree Slater, other than that bartender the place is great... You should try going on Wed. day or Sun. Night. John the owner is there and always gives away free drinks all night! Awsome club keep up the good work John.
Had a great time! the club is the best looking club in the bay. the girls are much better now and more variety. the only thing that i could complain about is a loud, rude , old bartender that can barely speak english! other then that the club rocks
Love the place the girls are great the club is perfect. The security guys are great too they go both ways if that's your thing! Love ya big John...So yummy.
I enjoyed the club January 2nd, and mostly the company of "Lissa". It was my best experience in the Bradenton area. I wish her "best friend" had not shown up. Unfortunately, too many of the girls call in and do not work. I would like to keep in contact:o)
i worked at cleo's for a few months and i loved it at first. it started getting boring to many t-shirt reviews and we weren't making any money there. friday or saturday maybe 300-500!! it sucks all and all. guys save your money
I have't been back either because of the high dance prices, lack of privacy, annoying lighting and too loud music. Any improvements to the above?
does anyone still go to this club? Is Wanda still there on days? got sick of the prices after the remodel and haven't been back.
Tampa's democrat mayor, Pam Iorio, wants to increase ALL business license fees. Her stated purpose is using the money to better monitor the adult businesses in Tampa. So don't think democrats are exactly your friends.
TO THE GIRLS: I dance in New York and recently found out that most of my co workers are not registered to vote. I have been registering them. The point is our opinion matters. Right now with our present government, we stand to lose our reproductive rights... more of our freedom of speech and we are all making LESS money. It won't be long before they start infringing on strip clubs too. We count for a lot of people. Get out there register and VOTE. After all everybody knows... Strippers don't need Bush!
I USED to go here all the time but since Cleos remodeled the dance prices went to 20 each, the music is too loud, the lights are too bright, and the lap contact isn't what it used to be.(It never was up to Tampa standards) Do yourself a favor and blast up the freeway 30 mins and land at Ybor Strip, by far the best club around. Save 5 bucks off the cover with an internet coupon or get the coupon out of Nightmoves or V2 magazine. Mags available at XTC adult videos. You will get full nude contact for 20, 3 for 50, and 2 for 1 specials in a private room with curtains for 10. Enjoy
I wll be staying in Bradenton later this month and would like to stop in, what exactly is allowed, how much contact or does it very from dancer to dancer? If they are just air dances I'll just drive up to Tampa! Any info would be appreciated
I worked here after the new opening and they weren't giving air dances. They weren't full blown miami stlye contact but there was contact.
If you're sticking with the Bradenton/Sarasota area, I think Cleopatra is the best dance for your money. HOWEVER, it's well worth the drive to check out Ybor Strip if you're ever in Tampa. I go to Cleo to drink and Ybor for ladies.
Bob, the new club has air dances and its boring!! Please don't waste your time or money there! I ask though, what club you know of offer the best contact lap dances for the money?? Thanks
is new club grind or air dances? Thanks
stopped in the new club one afternoon, to sum it up in one word, BORING. stick with Cleopatra's
Does anyone know anyting about the new club in Bradenton called Golden Cabaret?? I saw something in the newspaper about them looking for dancers for the new club. Just wanted to know if anybody knew anything, if so please post. Thanks.....
FORMER DANCER If you would like to send me the info on Tia by e-mail, my hotmail e-mail address is srq_rich Thanks
Thank you Former Dancer for the info about Tia. Do you know how I can get in touch with her for a private show. What agency and name is she working under. I would really appreciate it.
Was there on a sunday nite. Had a great time!! Thanks, Eva. Keep in touch.
I would like to know if anyone is making money at this club. I've heard that it is really beautiful on the inside now but what about the $$$? If any dancers know, please comment.
I stopped in Thursday early evening and to my delight found "Isis" is still entertaining here. For her other admirers she is now working nightshift Thurs-Sun. For you other guys she is one of the best ever, check her out!
wow i went in for the first time in a few weeks and too my surprise was this sexy busty blonde by the name of tiffany! i mean wow! she is worth going back again and again! natural huge tits and bangin body .. absoultely GORGOUSE! tiffany if you read this! holla atcha boy!
Anyone know if Daphne has come back...and is she days or nights?
Does anyone know if "Isis" is still here and if she is still working the dayshift?
For the guy trying to find Tia-unfortunately the last I knew is she's now just doing private shows at house parties and escorting. I ran into her at a party recently and she was escorting that night. For the guy looking for the bartender named Christina, she is no longer an employee there.
Hey, I used to be a regular here before they closed for a while, I go past there every day from work, the outside looks amazing, like an Egyptian Temple, did i read the sign right where it says "Buffet" ?? Hot women and all you can eat food -- Good Combo! I'll have to check it out again sometime this week.
the new look is fantastic, blows away anything else in the area. Was great to see all the ladies back! Just turn down the lights, to bright!!
Good to see the Club has reopened. Lots of questions. Are any of the girls from the past back? Is Christine back behind the bar? Anything new in the club? How does the dayshift talent compare to nights? I'll be back in the area in a couple of weeks and would like a preview of what to expect when I stop in.
Last night was awesome!!! There were a lot of costumers and lot of ladies!! Sorry you couldn't make it but the party will continue! The dances are the same except we don't have a champagne room right now. The dances are contact lap dances which are done every where through out the club for $20. Hope to see you there!
Couldn't make it to the grand opening, how was it? Plan on going today!!!
Never was at the club before remodle, what were the rules on dances and what can I look forward to?
Excellent !! Can't wait. By the way, Same Old "Rules" on dances??
Sorry we did have to wait another day. But yes we will open at 7:00 tonight. There are a lot of pretty ladies going to be there so come and see us!!!
I just called the club and was told they will open Friday the 13th at 7:00pm. I hope "Isis" and "Renee" will be back. Somebody give us a review!
Yes, they have remoldeled the club. It will be opened on Thursday, Feb. 12 at 7:00 pm.
What is the latest on their opening? Have they/Are they remodeling? Hope so
I hope they bring in some better talent on the day shift, was getting tired of the old hags with bad teeth.
word is they will open on Thursday the 5th of Feb, can't wait!!
I have been looking for a girl that worked in this club last summer. She danced under the name of TIa. A thin young beautiful girl. Does anyone know if she is still in the business, and where she is working? Thanks
