On Saturday nights it's $20 to get in with a $3 mandatory coat check. Not sure what it is on the other nights. Lapdances range in the 20-30 range. A corona is $8. I think the talent in this place is high when compared with the strip clubs in the area. I will say that I prefer "ethnic" strip clubs and this definitely fits the bill, mostly latin and black strippers with a few eastern european and white american thrown in. The service is good although if you're sitting at the bar you might have to give it up at some point because people can reserve them.

Strip Club ? No more like a dump! This is one of the most disgusting establishments I have ever been to. This establishment is for those looking to throw their money at hood rats so if you are then this is the venue for you. Vip is gross. I have seen restrooms in truck stops that are cleaner. The music they play is all low down dirty ghetto hood rap. Dancers are sloppy and unattractive. Bouncers are very strict and do a good job of weeding out most of the garbage that this place attracts.

Tsa pat down that made me feel like a criminal on my way in while others just walked by and tipped the bouncer to not be searched, I was insulted at the door and did not feel welcome at all! Go somewhere where you are treated like a person!

Probably one of the better strip clubs in the city.. I organized my friends bachelor party here - at first considered the champagne room but the prices were ridiculous so just had everyone pay their own way and get a seat by the bar - it was all good... They have a good mix of women - all shapes and colors, Black, Latina, Asian, Eastern European -you can have whatever you like.....

Always a party up in this spot! Can get pricy but the party is well worth it! Strippers are hot, drinks are strong! Music is good.

I've been to this strip club twice and both times were quite impressive! THE GIRLS HERE ARE GORGEOUS and equally had moves to even make a straight woman like me question her sexuality. I ran into a few of the exotic dancers in the bathroom and they were all so friendly... complimenting me on my looks/hair and such. :)The beautiful Russian girl who gave me my lap dance had big, natural boobs. Definitely natural as she rubbed them all over my face. Yum.Not as swanky as some strip clubs in Manhattan, however I do rate many of these girls a 10. Plus the service from the cocktail waitresses & bouncers were great.Some of the men that go here are annoying though... many of them mistakenly thought I was one of the strippers. Can't a girl just enjoy her time staring & drooling at other ladies without a dick getting in the way?!?? Dammit.Riviera can expect to see me & some guy friends again in the near future! Woohoo!

Since Wiggles, the last all-nude club in NYC closed some years ago, this is my go-to strip club. Pros: Good-looking girls, good music, and a generally clean atmosphere.Cons: Mandatory and constant tipping at the bar, smoking allowed, music excessively loud.For your own comfort and sanity, bring a good wad of cash with you when you go, keep your credit card out of the equation, and don't think about tables or bottles unless you know you can afford it, come what may. I agree with Matthew L.'s review, including the fact that, no matter what you do or where you sit, you will be spending at least $20/hr., although I might put that number at thirty. Between cover, coat check, drinks, and tips, even if I don't get any dances the minimum I spend here is $150 for 4-5 hours of entertainment, and I know that going in.The fact that panties never come off is the biggest drag, but the place can't help that. The current cover on Friday nights is $20. Cigarette smoking is "allowed" here, although it is supposed to be illegal for all businesses in NYC. Combine that with the hookah smoke that many patrons partake of and the place eventually becomes a choking, smoky mess - the thing I hate most about Riviera. Even with all that, though, people including me keep coming back because it's a relatively safe environment, it's conveniently located, and... pretty girls shaking that ass!

This place has more dudes than women. Turn off. Very few of the girls do anything acrobatic. Turn off. I went to the VIP. The upswing is a very private booth. The down swing is that other than that, this place feels.... skeevy. I've been in clubs that weren't half a big which felt classier. You are very aware of the racket. That literally makes this place feel like an actual meat market. So there is a sadness in the room. The girl who gave the private dance gave me her number afterward. When we talked later, she mentioned that the club takes about 50% with fees. I mentioned for that much, they should get their hairy behinds up on stage and shake it.

Riviera Gentleman's Club def got my engine going. Granted I went with all of my good friends which was an added bonus, getting in was no problem, had to go through a metal dectector but I figure that was for safety. The only gripe I had was to get a lap dance you had to head to the back tables, and that a few of the uglier dancers kept coming around. But there were two beautiful spanish women who absolutely had me mesmerized on the pole with their tricks and just their beauty was out of control, I basically was like damnnnnnnnn! The last girl of the night was this White girl who shook her badunkadunk for the cash, I have to give it to her she did her thing. Overall its a fun place for a group of people, id go back

This club is racist!!! They donor hire black girls unless they look Spanish!! The club reeks of old smoke. The manager is a severe coke head who ttys to offer girls in exchange for coke. The house mom comes on the floor looking for coke as well. All the dancers have nasty habits & will deffinitly suck your dick for a hit of something. So before you offer your cash offer coke & your dick.

Let me preface this review by the fact this is the first strip club I've been to in Queens/ NYC. I usually go to Montreal and Vegas clubs.I feel that the $10 cover was semi-reasonable for a Monday night, but felt the mandatory coat check after paying cover was a hidden cost. I had made it 1/2 way in before being called back to the door for more money to be extracted. I decided it wasn't worth the additional $3 from what I had seen 1/2 way in and proceeded to the exit.This is New York winter. Why not just be upfront and charge a $15 cover?

two questions on how does the lap dance work: 1) is every lap dance $30 or just the first one? 2) who times the dance, the girl or the bouncer?

Don't know what was worse, ridiculously LOUD music, unbearably nauseating BASE turned up to make sure you get an ill feeling in your stomach and head, or the filthy smoke drenched air. This place caters to the 21 to 24 year old poser "wanna-be" semi-urban children of Queens. Only path to bathroom is via tight, tight, tight crowed corner of bar. $30 lap dance. Too bad!

Does this club have a lot of South American Latinas? you know Brazil, Argentina, Columbia, venezuala, etc.... I'm not looking for a club of Domenican's, however I do think that Puerto Rican ladies are so so fine... Any help appreciated, and if yes which days are better than others, and what is the price breakdown- how much for a dance and how much to tip, how much for a CR etc and drink prices.

Not happy with G2000 any more. I am hoping someone can give a short review on what kind of lap dance will I get here. I guess easest way to answer (if you can) would be to compare it to other clubs... such as the old Stilletoes that was on 8th Avenue in NYC over a year ago or G2000, or any other reference you think may help to describe the LD. Much thanks!

What are you a fucking cop? Or are you just spreading "rumors" yourself by publication here? Think before you speak. Also how would the truth or falsity of such rumors matter one iota to whether your out of town friends can come? How would it affect them? How has it affected you? Do you stay up at night worrying about this? LOL Man people are so strange. unbelievable.

tuesday night first time here $20 cover , full pat down , lots of security, Like a strip niteclub here crowded lots of girls who are not dancers many young attractive girls USA born mainly, smaller than it looks from outside. horseshoe shaped bar dancers in the middle.There is a bar area off to side with dining tables , no dancers in there. I was there for a couple of drinks and not one girl approached me, offering laps , (It never would happen at gallaghers 2000 ) felt a bit out of place here , just not a place for forty year old guy, i guess, very loud and bright, but nice eye candy. The crowd is more MTV video extras than ghetto, one block from Steinway street R station safe neighborhood.

So I made my first trip to Riviera tonight (Tuesday)... I was there starting between 8:30 and 9:30 or so. Very nice atmosphere, friendly girls in the 5-7 range, friendly staff. Didn't do a LD but found out that they are $30. Champagne room is $150 / 20 minutes. There's also a "bedroom" for something like $500 / hour! Why would you want to sleep for that price? :) I'll be back for a private dance (not in the bedroom) soon. I strongly suggest you try it out, because the place is still under the radar and it seems that dancers will be extra-friendly...
