This place double charged me for two drinks with $150 dollar charge. I contacted to inquire about the charge and was explained that the waitresses are to inform customers when opening a tab there will be a $150 authorization charge which will remain in your account for 3-5 business days. Fallon (who appeared to hate her job btw), our waitress did not explain anything to us as I would never open a tab with $150 authorization for only a few drinks max if this was known. Outside of this, Penthouse was boring and stale. This is the best gentleman's club in NOLA but that's not saying much. Dancers are boring, all stay huddled in corner on cell phones, and are plan boring. If you're not from NOLA then lower your expectations for this club and all others.Edit: Two drinks we had were good so rating gets bumped up to 2 Star
A BUNCH OF CROOKS...AND VERY LITTLE "TALENT"!! Three points should sum it up (and hopefully make you think twice about visiting this dump):1. Mediocre talent (and saying this is a stretch, disgusting might be more fitting). Most girls were thin on top, many were heavy on the bottom half; no classic Penthouse pinup figures in this place if that's what you're looking for. Most of the guys in the place probably had bigger breasts that all but one of the girls we saw dance. Pole dancing -- forget it, no talent when we were there (Barely Legal had some excellent pole dancers, however).2. Priicccceeeeeyyyyyyy. Cover charge $12/person (and wouldn't wave it for my lady). Three drinks came out to be $49.75 (with tax and tip). Whew! At least they had a bit of alcohol in them.3. CROOKED, DISHONEST MERCHANT. We were there for about an hour, had 3 drinks, no dances, then left. Got a phone call from Capitol One's fraud dept the next day. SOBs at Penthouse charged us for an additional $150!! Capital One caught it and flagged it as fraud immediately. Of course, my card was compromised so couldn't use it the rest of the trip (good thing I had a second card!). Conclusion: There's absolutely no reason to go to the Penthouse club unless you want to bore yourself watching not-so-attractive women, pay for expensive drinks, and have to possibly deal with fraudulent charges and these RIPOFFS!STAY AWAY!! P.S. I learned my lesson in NOLA as this was one of two fraudulent transactions in 3 days -- go to an ATM, pay in cash. The character of most of these merchants stinks worse than Bourbon Street!
If you are going to NOLA this is the spot hands down. 5 of my friends and I went in two nights in a row both nights as soon as we walked in we got a table immediately and that was walking in around midnight or so the place was packed the cocktail waitress were on point the drinks wernt watered down like most places. The ladies were exponential. The doorman was friendly remembered our faces like we were bestfriends. The funny part is you can watch what the girls are doing they stay away from sleeze balls. Most importantly cant really go in to detail (what happens at the penthouse stays there) my advice dress nice act casual and you will have one hell of a night to remember. Also be ready to lay down some money after all it is a high end gentlemen's club. PENTHOUSE FOR PRESIDENT!
This is the best club in New Orleans! Right off bourbon street they have the hottest girls !!No rift raft, higher end clientele and top of the line entertainers. Staff is great, music is awesome. Head over for the best strip club experience in the Quarter!
I give it between 3 to 4 stars for my experience on Friday night.On Friday, as you should expect, it was ultra packed. The girls are all 5 stars, but because it was packed, I didn't really interact with any of them, nor did they interact with me. Personally, I look for interaction rather than a show. So, I can't rate the quality of their private dances, because I wasn't given any opportunity to get one. I'm sure if I really pursued, I could've gotten one, but I wasn't that motivated to squander my money.One girl was really amazing on the pole, though. I asked her to give my friend a lapdance. He enjoyed it, so that's a plus. She wasn't very friendly though, and said up front no touching, so that was kind of eh.The place was clean and well-lit, so that's another plus. Anyway, just know what you're getting into if you go. Pay a ($14, I think?) cover, gradually take over some bar stools so that you and your friends can sit, see some beautiful girls being busy with the many other guests that are present, and debate whether you want to go out of your way to spend a lot of money on a private dance.
Security are a bunch of dicks, accuse me of doing something in the bathroom I was obviously not doing and kicked me out. Other than that my experience was great. Security sucks a big dick!
My husband and I thought we would visit on our last night in NOLA since it wasn't a far walk from our hotel. It was $12 each to get in and you can get stamped on your arm to go in and out as your please-just don't wash it off! It's a small quaint place but beautiful inside, our Penthouse is much bigger in St Louis. The drinks were not cheap, but a good amount of alcohol in them. The girls were very pretty, but it was all the nice bootie team. I don't think one girl had boobs bigger than a small C (if that), so if you're a boob guy, it's not your place. A private lap dance was $40 but the beautiful girl I chose made it too quick and you could tell she didn't care. Otherwise it was a good time. Good people watching and the waitresses were very attentive.
Shake those fine a$$ ti....oh sorry. Yeah, I'm reviewing the Penthouse Club. I don't really know how these stack against the other strip clubs in New Orleans but from others I've visited elsewhere I'll say:- First topless, not full nude.- Entrance fee (about 10 bucks) but drinks are definitely strip club priced, like 8 bones for a cheap beer.- It's very bright in there and not too quiet in case you wanted privacy to whisper sweet nothings.- There are TVs if you're not down with ogling.- What I was kinda blah about was unless you go private lap dance, the stage interaction is on the lesser end. Girls are more on the acrobatic/pole dance end than the get in your face and shake what their doctor gave 'em end.- That said more on the classy end of strip clubs if you feel uncomfortable about the whole thing.Now you know.
one of my favorite stops during mardi gras was the penthouse. if you're gonna do NOLA, do it right. and classy, of course.no complaints... mostly because i got in for free, got free drinkies, and was fawned over by one of the girls. pretty sure she was serious about coming home with us....yup, great night.
My posse's on bourbon. For all you sir mix a lot fans out there. Most of the gentleman club's have their dancers out front to coax you in. Penthouse does not. You can walk into a swanky bar lobby area but the dance area is hidden. Charging a cover I was a little hesitant going in without knowing what I was in for. I must admit I wasn't enticed by the other clubs at all but my reservations were quickly nullified after taking a seat. The women here are much higher caliber than anything I witnessed on the strip. Drink prices are high priced and I wouldn't use the ATM there. GO for the ladies!
Felt comfortable going ( 2 females), much cleaner and nicer than the skanky ones on Bourbon. Bartender was real nice BUT they held $150 on my ccard (for a $48) tab and it's still on hold 4 days later---that sucks!
It's a strip club. Much cleaner than traditional Bourbon holes and 80% of the girls are FINE. It's always packed on weekends and has a total party vibe. It's more like going to a club where half the girls are nekkid (I say half b/c there are LOT'S of girl patrons here). As with any establishment of this nature, expect high prices.
One of my favorite places for ass and tits. Vibe is nice and there's always pretty girls! It's one of the nicer strip clubs compared to the others. Place is always clean. Great place to hang out with great eye candy.
What are the prices? Does this place get busy?
Casper ... you friendly ghost ... isn't so friendly ... girls watch out and dont fall for this wanna be pimp. Makes every club in New Orleans get a bad name. Especially this one! This club isn't the same as before. They had awesome girls, but now all the girls that are linked to him are Terrible. Bunch of scam artists. I got my wallet stolen from a girl that gave me a lap dance. Called security and didn't do anything about it. This guy that pimps girls out, he actually trains them to be steal wallets, phones, etcs... so watch your belongings guys!!!
Ladies 18-30 years old: We are seeking 20-25 more beautiful ladies that are fun, and love to have a great time. We are the largest class A escort service in New Orleans, and we are always busy! If you want to have a blast and make money at the same time, then give us a call at 636-375-2938. Ask for the director of Bare Necessities.
Does Logan work at this club?
Do you need a license to dance in New Orleansor Lousiana?
For the most part the features are good looking but I must give my opinion about one that I met. She said her name is Honey De La Cruz but she looked more like a cruise ship. I have seen NFL linemen smaller than her she must have weighed in at about 150 pounds with a horrible make up job and to top it off she had the worst attitude out of anyone there. Dont waste your time going and ever seeing her.
Most of the girls here are very nice but there is one who thinks that she is to good to be there. To the "dancer" who does not take off her clothes and refuses tips from people, please find a new job you are not good at being a dancer.

The penthouse club is a franchised name, they are all over the country and no this one is not connected to the one in NY. If you had worked there you would already know that. There are no clubs that don't want a girl because she is asian and if you had worked anywhere, you would know that. (except maybe in asia) The cartoon picture you posted that was apparently supposed to represent you was such a moronic idea that if you are having trouble getting hired, the problem is you and not the fact that you are asian
To Asian Gem: you're asking at the wrong place. This website isn't owned by Penthouse Club, it's a REVIEW site. The management might not EVER check here, or they might check daily. Go to the website OWNED BY THE CLUB in order to contact their management. And BTW, so far you're doing a great job of keeping up with typical dancer mentality ... :)
you sound like a putz. ignorance seems to suit you fine.
Again, I ask, would I be a welcome addition to this club? I would like to also know what the house fees are lately plus any other fees. Thanks ahead of time!
To the person who had a comment regarding my posting. Who are you to call someone a liar? There are people who are mixed with other nationalities in this world. So, instead of being an ass, perhaps you can learn to just accept the world as it is and keep your mouth shut unlesss you have something intelligent/nice to say.
Does this club have any job openings for entry-level management? If so please post an email address for the general manager or owner so I can send them my resume. I am currently living in Lake Charles, and I am seriously considering moving to New Orleans. I will be there for a few days in the near future to investigate employment options. Thank you
To the few girls who are asking if the Penthouse is good...IT'S VERY GOOD. I was recently in New Orleans for about 4 months and did totally killer. Penthouse and Visions are the only ones worth really working. Visions is a little more liberal. I had to leave and go back home. Boyfriend problems, but plan on coming back within a couple months.
No go work in a nail salon because your a liar. Half Italian my ass your straight off the boat from some rice picking country. Why do these pure asians want to say they are half something else??? I love Asians but not the kind who come out with lies from their first sentence.
I am korean and italian, I just recently moved back to New Orleans to find that The gold Club is now Penthouse. My friest question is, would this be the same as the one in New York? My second question is, are there any asian women in the club or would one be welcome? Must one do an amateur contest to be hired or does management make the decision? I have been in and out of the business for a few years and I would like to end my time in the profession with the Penthouse Gentlemens Club.
Just checking in before heading back to NOLA - is Miss Lori still the housemom here? Hoping so!!!!! Dancers, how are things at the club? Would I be wasting my time coming back? Should I look elsewhere?
Tourists may drop more money here in one shot but the regulars are appreciated here for being here as long as they are respectful to the dancers
The biggest volume in business is being done at Visions in New Orleans, but that is a significant drive away from downtown & French Quarter. Penthouse is one of the good FQ clubs, right smack in the middle of tourist district. Other good FQ clubs are in the Deja Vu / Hustler chain -- DV, H, Lil Darlins, Barely Legal. Then there are some FQ dives -- if you're a high-extras girl, maybe they'll want you. :)
yes, i did work in memphis at one time. i wasn't there that night but that was my main income. so is this place good?and is it downtown??
Hey, "Help Me." You wouldn't formerly have danced at until the Nashville ordinances shut down profit in that city, would you, and then a certain club in Memphis?
i'm about to fly here from nashville to work. is it worth my time and money?? what's an average night here, income wise?
after a yr of being a vip at hustler, i decided to dump the club and their rude mgrs and staff. after 2 w/e of wandering the nearby clubs, i ended up in the penthouse. 3 ques came into my mind. 1. where have all these hot women been hiding? 2. why havent i come here soner. 3. will they let me move in? staff/dancers are absolutely b-e-a-utiful!!! managers seemed very cordial and polite. even introduced themselves to me. bartenders? forget about it, they are breathtaking!!! I know where ill be going for now on.
You need to eat more. Milkshakes are good.
I went to Penthouse this past Friday. I was impressed with the number of girls working as well as the level of attractiveness. I've been here a few times before and was never really impressed...the atmosphere is beautiful, but the energy level was always pretty low. This time around, things were better...energy was positive, music was good, girls were hot!
the club is a little slow right now but it always is in the summer. the managers are definitely nicer than the club in baton rouge!
I agree with you on the drink prices and on the energy. I don't even see any dancing going on anymore. What happened to the flow of this club? They use to have a big group of good looking girls. Where did they all go? I don't want to go out anymore for the fact is no one is the place right now. I liked the old days better with the great music and the hot girls.
The Penthouse (defunct Goldclub) never has more than 6 girls working and they are never that good looking. The drink prices are high with low content and while the club is a nice atmosphere the vibe is flat.
Scarletts is not in N.O. anymore dancer. Hustler ownes the club now and has turned it into a baby banger place. Sick people! Penthouse is the best place down town to hang out. I don't think it is nice for them to advetising on our web page anyway. I think it makes Tempt sound a little ceap if they can't do the work themself. Don't put your name on Penthouse coat tails. Act classy not trashy.
Ive worked at Temptations before and its such a horrible club both as a customer and a employee! Customers didn't come in because the dancers there are mostly trash! There isn't even a good mngnt team there.... take my word do not go to Temptations! Penthouse is the best, and scarrletts isnt bad either!
Where's Kendra? Miss that girl.
Temptations and it's sister clubs are providing free lodging, NO tip outs ever, reimbursed travel fees, and a limo will come and pick you up at your house if you can't get a ride into work. I've been there for 5 years. Good club. average girl will make $500-$1000 a night. no bad girl stuff required ever.
Don't you know that the BR girls and the NO girls don't get along? The only reason the old girls are in BR is the living space. Get a clue??? I have been hearing mix messages from Penthouse on what is going on. I do know it looks great! Everyone loves the new look. What is with the cash and run of girls?
If any of you girls want to make money its all at the gold club in baton rouge, along with alot of the old regulars i used to see when i was in town
What are you guys talking about! Every girl I talk to say's they hardly charge any tip out! Also, the girls have been some of the best looking ones they had in years. Two weeks ago had 3 fine girls from Hustler that said they were treated way better here at the PC. Get a life my man!
Yo Cyd, where you at? In for Fest next week!
The fact is that all of the good clean dancers can't work with the skanks! Now they are jacking up the price to work with little money going round. Not planning things out at all! I would much rather see a beautiful girl and talk to her than get my junk rubbed on by a skank. If you want a skank to rub on you go to Big Daddy. If you want pretty then go to Pent but that is not the case anymore. Do you understand now? Do you not know how a club works and what it is that guys like me wants? I tell all of my friends not to wast the time and cash in that place anymore. The club looks great but not worth my hard earned cash.
I was an un prepared fool, and now I am gonna lose my job. I parked the buses underwater just like I was so supposed, and now I'm gonna lose my job. We got a whole team of doctors at the superdome and everything is just fine, keep them feds outa my way. I guess there really is justice in this world! Ahhhhhahahahahahaha
Never complain about girls performing well in the VIP. Complain about what you want, but not that.
Great Renovations in the club but the Quarter atmosphere has changed completly.The cliental is mostly the spanish construction clean up workers , they try to get a little handsy but nothing I can't handle with my mini stun gun. They have started tacking on the House fees & nickel & dime charges probley add up to $ 80 in House fees per night.Last Sat. paid out more than I made with the new locker rental fee. I am trying to be optimistic but Thinking about all the money I have 2 pay for scuzzy guys 2 grope my body all night is bringing me to the verge of insanity !!!!!
Does anyone know if 'Mercedes, ' a beautiful, thin, Mulatto, black girl, 21st Birthday last June/July, danced at the Gold Club, and prior to that briefly at Larry Flynt's Hustler, is still a dancer in the New Orleans scene? We miss her!
I like the people that work at the club but the girls they have working are skanks. The pretty girls that worked here are mostly gone and working where they can make money. The brown sugar girls are selling themself in the so called VIP. I don't spend any of my money in this place anymore. My girls are no longer here so I will spend money where they are. This club has no idea what loyalty really is. Sad to see this club go down like this.
wondering if the girls are making money? Is it safe in the clubs?
Has anyone been to this club since it has been the penthouse? Ive heard mixed things about it... whats going on?
curious about inexpensive accomodations?How do you describe the club? How's the cash? Any info is greatly appreciated. Hope to see you this summer.
was wondering if there is any hotel open yet? wanted to come down and work. Any good money? need to make at least $600 a night. Any info, thanks
Was in there last Sat and had a great time. This is a very nice club. If you want hot and classy girls this is the club to go too. Check out Kendra and if you like brown sugar get a dance from Felicia!!!
Was in the club one day this week and set at the satellite stage near the bar. Waited about a half hour and no waitress would wait on me. Especially the blonde in the pants suit. The waitresses acted as if they were in another world and you know what that means. The managers walked around like so what. Finally moved to the bar and got a drink and notice that others customer had to do the same to get drinks. This place needs some managing.
In response to curious, Yes the girls are making money but we are always open to new talent, besides whats the worst that could happen if you come down on a saturday night.
I was wondering if anyone can tell me if everything is back to normal? Are u girls making Money?..would like to come down and work but just worried. thanx
I just wanted to thank Mark, Chuck, Jimmy, Ben & the rest of the crew @ The Penthouse Club for all their help during the Golden G-Strings contest... The club looks amazing and the girls are hotter than ever... I had a great time there and was treated with nothing but respect & can't wait to come back next year to pass along my title...Thanx again for making my dream a reality.:)
They are not treating the girls well at all. The crew are the same but the face lift is great. All the good looking girls from before don't want to work because of the club making the girls work for cheap. Don't blame them at all. The few that I have seen are new and it's no wonder you have the kind you do have. Give the girls what they want so they will come back. Be smarter than the rest of the strip clubs don't stoop to the level.
Hands down the best looking strips club in the South! This club is better looking than it was before! When the girls find out about this place and how good Chuck and the Crew take care of the girls- this will be the best club to work in the South! By the way the Crew is back!!!!!!!
Yo Cyd, Wjere you at? Fest schedule announced today! 77 days and counting. I hope you are still reading this board. Let me know?
Make sure you make plans to come and see the hottest Features. I can't wait! Leslie Culton
Dose anyone know about a dancer that worked there? I think the name she used was Keanna. She's a Hungarian girl, Real name is Timea or Tammy. about 5'3, with dark brown hair. I think she's 27 or 28. She moved down there from CT. She has some friends that are wondering If she is OK. Any info on where she is now would be appreciated!
they will be in N.O. on March 1st-4th.
When and where are the Golden G-strings this year? I can not find any information on the site or anywhere else!
I am coming down that way to look at clubs to dance in. Wanted to check out a couple of Bourbon street. Wanted to know if you were hiring? Hope you like my pic-coming from jackson, ms. Currently dance at Bo's Hideaway in pleasant Hill. Thanks, Moka
Listen Bob You can fuck off. I lived in New Orleans for 6 and half years and still have lots of friends there and they are the ones who told me about this.
I am so glad that you just now took the time to find something to bitch about. Don't you think the people of N.O. have other things on the mind? Do you think you are the only person on the planet? Why don't you get a clue and get a life. The people here don't care about you and your drama.
Cyd. Its a date. Fest or no Fest, I'll be down to visit and spend a week. Could be spent building or fixing, giving back to my favorite city. I wish I could say Michigan would be a good place to work but we are behind the curve on the rebounding economy. Post when you land somewhere.
Sid, I hope you and your family are ok and you home is not too torn up. My best to all the dancers in NOLA. I'll be back for JazzFest!
Thank you for trying to help us all out. I worked at the gold club in Mimphis 2 days ago and Bryan hooked us up and Thank you guys for every thing. Do you have any clubs in Pen FL or around the area? Thank you for your sister club in Mimphis you guys were great!!

I would assume that your club is closed due to Katrina, and if it is, how long do you expect to be closed? What kind of devastation has Katrina had on your club, but more so, on gentlemen's clubs in the area? How many dancers have been put out of work? ETC...... Rick Ryan Night Shift Adult Newspaper Kansas City, Missouri
Can anyone tell me if a woman coming into this club by herself would be welcome? could I get a dance or go into the VIp.
Does anyone know if Walter still works/djs at the GC? How about Miller and Christy? Too bad about Tim, I used to work there long ago and he was always nice to me (perhaps things change). For all of the ladies considering working there: I loved it and I miss everyone dearly, it is a great place to work. If you go, send my regards.
This is owned by the same group! This club over the last 3 months have made great changes. The whole bottom floor has been redone and new furniture is on the way! These guys have hired some new talent and has made them the top club in the quarter! If you cant find a hot chick here you are not looking!!!
One of the better strip joints in the French Quarter. A few steps off Bourbon. For big spenders there are private niches upstairs. Ahem. You can forgo the cover if you get a coupon, available on the street from random bums.
Just wanted to chime in and say Hi, Tell my friend Donna Doll, your feature this week, I said Hi and be good to her she can be fun, if your nice.. Love you guys.
Her name is Lily and she is at Scarletts down the street. We miss her over here but at least you can find our wee one.
There used to be this tiny black girl, something under 5', at the Gold Club in New Orleans. Her name was something like Rose or Lily or Tulip or something. She still work there?
Thanks for sticking up for us. Guys like you rock. The other gut just did not meet me & my girlys. I don't hang with ugly chicks and we always get heads to turn. He should come back & try again. Thanks to mick from gc girls
You must have went on a bad night. i've been going to the gc every time i'm in town. love the place. maybe you missed all the hotties on the night you went. try more towards the weekend. love you, ladies!!!!
good enviroment. fun. but the girls are overrated.. not the prettiest faces, although all the bodies were nicely fit... but damn, some funny looking(terrible) boob jobs! if you like freak shows , here's the place to be.
I worked there last fall and had more than $200 in funny money that they refused to cash out. They promised to send it to me and have not sent it yet. I have called twice. What else do I need to do to get my cash? I won't be back until Jazzfest.
Best time i've had in 20 years.Classy and beautiful girls. Mats Mounts XOXOXO ;-)
I would just like to thank the staff for a good time at the Golden -G strings as always the most fun a contest can be... I will be featuring therre sometime this summer so keep an eye ut for me and get to the club and have some fun.. I love the place.
From what I gather Chuckie is still at the club and this guy Jimmy has not got a clue of how to manage a club. The girl are the one thing that I go for and this guy is making them all mad. I don't want to have to look all over bourbon for the pretty girls I have here. Do what you have to do to make your girls happy. Hire some one who thinks about them for once guys.
I believe so, plus there is another manager, Jimmy. Seems like a really fair and decent guy
