Hey all, I know that this great club has been closed for a while now but I saw an old regular of mine from here a few weeks ago. She was drinking in hustler but I wanted to know where she is dancing now. Anyone know where Jessica is now? I loved her, domincan with great tits and some mad skills :-)
New owners, new managers, new girls, new club- sappire's

Ha Ha now thats funy!!! I think he is broke.
Sorry, I want the funny $. I hear that buster is in cheetahs every night. Maybe he will cash your receipt.
don't have a funny $, but i have a recite from priv. owning me $$
Has anyone got any old privilege funny money? I will buy it from you.
I was wondering if this club is hiring bartenders?? thanks!! xoxo
Hello Everyone Yes I was sad to see Priviledge close down it was horrible the way alot tof the girls found out too. But new beginnings will never hurt you things can only get better. Especially for those who stuck in the when at times it was like working at a place that had so much potential but one person holding it all back.Toni is there also what a great girl she's sexy and smart which is not the norm for alot of people.Her new name is Taylor. You know what Chris Rock says No Boom Boom in the champagne room! Ricks is a very classy upscale place and ther food is great!!!!!
Does anyone know the old dj's name from privilege. I think it was kevin but I am not sure of his last name.
this club is closed...:( fuck the owners!
does this place still have a petite asain girl with incredible ying-yangs still working here?? (they were bigger than my head)
I did'nt mean it I was just jealous of her. I am privileged no pun intented to be able to have internet access in prison I work out everyday I jerk off to internet porn prison is not too bad
right on billy! lol buster was a pathetic excuse for a human being, ripping everyone off like that when he shut the place down out of the blue. yah i'd love to see where that loser is in 5 years! ha!
Figures Buster is a loser. The only reason girls would actually talk to him was to avoid house fee. He disgusting, old and his breath smells so far beyond horrible.
Anyone looking for Buster he work's at devin tavern in tribecca, you can find him there drunk at the bar just about every night
Yes, the place is permanently closed down. Heard they had problems with their lease. You should check out other Clubs in the area like Headquarters and Hot Lap Dance Club.
is dis place still close
Did Channel retire? Does anyone know where she is now? I have to get in touch with her... any help would be really appreciated. Thank you.
Thanks... will check it out.
oh ya , chech out the vip club i go there with my wife all the time and we have a great time
My wife and I used to go to Privilege occasionally with some friends of ours. They're were pretty couples-friendly, and we always had a great time. Now it is closed, we're looking for somewhere new in the city (or NJ) that is also couples-friendly. Any recos? Thx
privilege is closed. you probably wouldn't have gotten paid anyway. they're crooks.
Thos club is awesome the girls were friendly great site
Any news on Chanel would be very appreciated... thanks.
Just so everybody knows the owners didn't pay their rent and got thrown out of the place. Buster is not just an asshole to his employees but to his business associates too. Keep your eyes on this place a new club will open up eventually. And one that will make money too. Buster is a joke.
Does anyone out there know how Channel is doing?
thanks for telling me. i gotta go see my girl teresa! and nikki loved her. yeah a lot of the girls told me Buster was a real prick. fuck him. he lost some of the best girls ever. gotta go see em this weekend. Jamaica!
Chanel, with that bubble butt and juicy breasts was the best... anyone know where she is now?
Alot of these girls hate the way Buster acts and runs the place. Most of the girls are working in Long Island at Gossip. Teresa and Nikki are the latest 2. Madison has been back and forth as well.
I had 2 favorites for obvious reasons. I liked the big black girl named Teresa cuz she always showed me her pussy in the room and she was an overall great performer especially when I would go with my wife. I liked Chastity, even though she literally only had nipples. But I liked her cuz she sucked a great dick with those fat lips!!! Can any1 tell me where they went? I miss my guls! Jamaica! Juicy poosy!!!
vip certainly busier, but harder to get a seat and hang out. and dancers are older, tougher veteran-pro types, and lap dances didn't deliver.
VIP is a much sexier club then tens. there are more girls there, and alot more customers. more private rooms are booked every night than at the other club.
tens has potential. saw one girl from privilege. tens is going to annoy you: 30 at the door, higher coat fee. ok, fine management has to earn a buck but they've got to deliver. the way to deliver is to hire younger skinnier girls and loosen up on the dances. instead of the belly on the butt thing not just let but teach the girls to do it right. then tens could be more than everything that privilege was.

Chanel was by far the hottest thing in Privilege... does anyone know what happened to her?
most of us girls are at the vip club on 20th street now. come visit us there. amy
Amy dancing at Ten's 21 st btw Park and 6th,
the acting owner "buster" is and always will be an asshole 4 what he did 2 those girls...
if you figure out where your faves went please post here. privilege will be hard to replace. great staff and owner. good luck to them.
Some of my favorites hadn't been in evidence for some time, namely Rebecca and Nicole. But on my last couple of visits I danced with a young girl from Japan called Amy (Aimee?) I'd really like to find out where she is now. Please post if you know. Finally, especially if any of the girls who worked there are reading this, I'd like to know if there is a club in Manhattan that has a similar vibe to Privelege. It would save me a lot of money over having to try them all out. ;-) In any case, good luck to all the girls, and RIP Privelege.
I went by the other night and, to my surprise, chains on the door! I am really sorry to see this club go. I tried a few other clubs, but I kept coming back to Privelege because I was always happy there. Of course some girls could be a bit pushy, but more often than not I found the girls friendly, ready to have a conversation, and willing to give very sensual dances. (The fact that I often came in early, and that I always made it clear that I respected their profession, was certainly part of that equation.) And when I ended up in the champagne room, it was always quite memorable.
I was so sad 2 hear this club shut down. I moved to CT and was in town. I remember I got the BEST blowjob from some little chick named Chastity in the Champagne room. She had a little troll friend who said she'd get in on the action too, I think her name was KIWI or Apples or something. ugly little thing. I passed on her. I even saw Chastity after hours. HOT! If any1 can tell me where she went, I would love it. Miss u girl.
Does anyone have any info. on where Chanel went? Any info. would be appreciated. Thanks.
lisa the shot girl and a bunch of us went to the vip club. we are there now, so if any body wants to know where most of the girls went, its at the vip on 20th st. 212-633-1199 jen
A lot of the old Dominican crew disappeared, anyone know what happened to them? There was a blond, petite, with huge D's... and there was Channel... anyone know where they are now?
Where's Margot? I came in and looked for her. Anybody know what club she's at?
does this club hire hot exotic black women??
This is Jenna....If you still come on here, write back to me.... I was in Vegas for a while.....and now I am in Long Island! Kisses
Was inthere last nigt. Many new hineyts strolling the cat walk. Very nice new black and spanish girls and of course new russian girls. All very sweet. Going to be there next week...
Does anyone know where Dominican Chanel is working now?
Saturday the club was bumpin'!!! I got the best lapdance from this slim beautiful ethnic queen. I can't wait to back !
to Michael Coxxx---see my post on 5/7---this is the main club where the Ohio girl worked. You might be able to order a copy of the 48 Hours Mystery show (CBS) if you are interested. What are the latest developments in the case?
There are ALL kinds of girls at this club. You will not be disappointed.
are there any black or spanish girls here?
So, apparently Channel's not working here anymore... anyone know where she went? Any help would be appreciated... thanks.
What is the name of the short, 21yo, little Latina )Brazillian( with the amazing ass? Thanks I have to go back and see her
What was gained by deleting my post? I love this club and am an patron of the industry. You leave MJC's accusatory post intact, though. What sense does that make?
I was just wondering if this was the Club the Ohio girl worked in before she was decapitated by a jealous ex-stalker. I follow the case I think the dude that killed her was a strip club list fan.
Just trying to get info., why the animosity on Channel sweety?
channel in a next club sucking bigger an better cocks
Has anyone seen Chanel recently? Has she returned? Help a brotha out.
so stay your ass outta there and leave it to the big boyz
the girls are so so, the club is definately not vip or pec, but for a second or a third tier club it was ok. i like vip and pec the most
need to hire a few more new dancers a few 9s
Chanel's one fine woman, anyone else know when she'll be back... haven't seen her the last few times I visited this fine establishment...
to "to Officer"...and you have nothing better to do than criticize what I post?
She was there at least as of a month or so ago.
Is Chanel still working here? Beautiful Dominican dancer with a stacked body...
do u ve nothing 2 do but write the same thing in every web site
Does a girl named Erica still work there? She was new very pretty. Havent seen her. thanks
I just watched 48 Hours Mystery on CBS, which concerned a dancer at this club who was tragically murdered. The dancer's name was Catherine Woods from Ohio, and she danced under the stage name "Eva." It appears that her boyfriend Paul Cortez is guilty, and he should be executed by guillotine in Central Park!
I was there on this Saturdayand what a show! They put our bachelor on stage with three girls, it was awsome! and the girls are just stunning! The best club in Manhattan because it's attitude free, everybody was sooo friendly! Be back for sure!
Went there last night and had a tremendous time. Everyone from the valet parking guy (very friendly and willing to look out for you) to all the girls(they know how to make you relax) to the bartenders (you'll never be dry). Keep up the great work guys!! see ya next week.
I've been djing' for three years in the Little Rock, Arkansas. I know how to work crowd real well and am trying to move to Manhattan. Anyone know a club that needs a good dj?
Was wondering if girls need some kind of license to work in New York? Some cities request that. Also, are the house fees high? I had heard that girls pay about 100 to 200 a night to work. Wanted to travel here. thanks
Does anyone know of a Brazilian girl names Stephanie still works there? i havent been to the club in a while...
the turnover in dancers and new hiring have left the club with majority of dancers who are black. i liked the european and south american dancers but they all seem to be gone excepting a chubby russion or two.
I love the new girls!!!!! keep them coming!!!!! the staff is very friendly too.....see you next week!!!!
When this place gets busy it gets less fun, but it is still fun.
Thanks to all the great people at Privilege. My wife and I had the best time. She had dances with only dancers that wanted to dance for her not just to get paid. I would like to thank the dancer from Jamaica for telling the other dancers about us. I will always remember my wife saying " I love woman" with the biggest smile on her face.
the dancers who are most fun are the new ones dancing part time while wtudying part time in college
Re who cares i am a dancer over 30 and blow away any twenty something in every way age doesn't make someone look better its an individual so f off
It's a good club; the contrast between the relaxing state of Privilege and all of the other clubs in NY is extreme. But Privilege needs to be reinvigorated with some additional girls who are new. One good thing is that they seem receptive to dancers visiting for a few weeks from out of town; they should do more of that.
They're all great. Management has a real knack for getting girls who are sincerely nice. This makes the club the best in NY. It's a real contrast to other clubs where you feel completely assaulted.
Who's the hottest and most friendliest dancer/dancers working here now? Recently I've noticed a turnover of new ladies. Thanks.
First of all, thanks to all who recommended this club. We were there this week and had an absolutely fabulous time! The girls are so friendly and attentive. Thanks to all.
i am from the midwest as well and i've been dancing here for a couple of years. it's a great club to work for. there is crap in every work establishment, but if you can hustle and keep yourself in shape..it's no brainer to make decent and consistent here. good luck
can someone tell me about this club... coming from the midwest do you have to audition?? do you have to wear evening gowns?? how much are the dances?? touch club??
i just want to say that alex geaa and roxy are the hottest guls i have ever seen
I was in the other night to see Kayla again. This is a terrific club and Kayla is an incredible woman. I feel privileged!
You don't tip for a dance at New York clubs. You pay the pre-set non-negotiable dance fee. Which, here like most places, is $20. You have no choice in the matter; that's what it costs. This is as good a club as any for a woman to get a dance, I would think.
I am coming into the city on Jan 4th, is this a good club for a woman to get a dance? Tipping is always a question, What is a good tip?
I agree with you about choosing girls to VIP with on the basis of personality more than "picture perfect" looks. But on the other hand, I also think Nicole is cute as hell. Irresistable, actually. So I'm not sure I see much of a compromise there.
We met the owners of Privilege down at bike week in Wildwood this past weekend and wanted to say thanks guys you all are great and we will come out to visit you guys soon when were in New York. Tell Mario Maybe I can cut his hair next time. Anyway Thanks guys see you all soon.
I was wondering what are the requirements to work here. Do you need gown or a certain kind of shoe. I used to work at Scores West. The rules there are pretty tough about what to do and what not to do. Any info would be great THANKS
I just started at this place last week and its awesome..the money is great and yes you can EASILY make $500+ on a Thurs, Fri& Sat. The house fees vary from $100-$150 depending on what kind of schedule you have and the tip out is $20 for the house mom and $20 for the dj. You make $300 per hour in the champagne room with a $30 tip to the host. I was told this was one of the best clubs in manhattan so I decided to audition and believe me, im happy I did. There are beautiful girls here of all different types also. Hope that answered your questions!
Hi everyone, I am from raleigh north carolina and wondering if the club could use an olive toned Italian from the south? I'm going to be moving up there in a while figured I would try out the club and see what I could do up there. Do newcomers usually do well? What are the flavors of girls they have there now? Would a southern accent turn most guys off up there? Thank you for all your help in advance :-) Smile Bella~
So what's the money like here? Can $600+ be cleared easily on a Fri or Sat? How many days are you req to work? House Fee? I know management might read these but in any event is management cool or are they creeps and/or do they fine you for every little thing?
Can someone tell me is a girl that goes by the name of Britney works here?? She real short, latin, but white looking.
Don't forget about the dress code! If you come with a T-Shirt, shorts, or sneakers you're going to get turned away! Anyone hear of a club called Chorus on the West Side, 28th St.?
hi all...can anyone tell me if Ruby formerly with Scandals now works here. Ruby is a dominican with short dark hair and freckles, slammin body. any help is appreciated, thanks
Coming up to NYC and would like some info about this club. Is the money good? What's an average night? How slow does it get in the summer? Can you still easily pull off $300 to $500 a night in the summer? Thanks!
This is a great club, but they need to hire some new talent advertise and get some momentum again. It used to be you could go on an odd day of the week and meet the newly hired dancers with the odd days in their schedule. Hiring a few new dancers would attract more customers.
Dropped in last night and was pleasently surprised. Nice selection of black/spanish girls. Chanel, big butt Dominican beauty brickhouse will rock your world. Once you get passed the hustle you'll notice a body made for Hip Hop videos. Anyone know what the deal is with this chicky? Let a brotha know.
i m very happy to know that ur club is very
Can anyone tell me if Stella, cute curvy blond, still works here? If she is what days, and how is she with private dances and VIP?
I wish maya would still post. One of the few real voices; a woman who is not full of herself (at least not too much) and really goes out of her way to help the guys. From what I understand, she is not in the business anymore. Just wish she'd at least stop back here once in a while.
I've never understood the Maya thing.
Well since this is a strip club, Yes then they hire dancers. Where are you from the sticks.
I just can't say enough how much I love Privilege... been there a few times over the past few years, most recently last Saturday. Had a great time - beautiful women, really hot lap dances. Awesome stuff.
Hey! Does this club hire dancers? What are tip outs? Thanks for any information!
came here last nite with a few friends and had a blast. The music was great and the atmosphere was fun. I spent my time with a drop dead gorgeous girl named daisy. can't get her out of my head. anyone know what nights she's there?
What ever happened to Maya? Still work here or does anyone know where she is working??
Any particularly interesting new faces now that springtime is here? Have had some travel recently and it really makes clear how lame the local clubs are, in general. Privilege is probably still the best of them (no BS) but the crew of girls has been static for so long, I've lost interest. Used to be you could pop in and see new model class women in town for a couple of weeks, or a new student arriving a couple of months early before they started school. No more. What happened?
Hey your right there r alot of grls at hustler from here. But I found Minks. I used to see her at vip's awhile ago before she broke her back. I can't believe she made it back to the business. Can't keep her down she looks better then before happier probaly to be walking it's a amazing. She is a dancer to watch for and worth the wait
out of towner, i'm sorry she has been gone since last year.
A dancer named Ivy, if I remember right, who danced there a while ago? She's tall and skinny, long blonde hair. Met her there my last trip to NYC last summer and wondering if she is still around.
What are the tip outs and house fees?
boy i love this club.. rock on girls the easter bunny is coming this weekend so hop to it
Hey what else does that dominican blond do? What about dirty talk? Does she whisper nice things? Wow, I gotta make a special trip tp this club when I get a chance. let me know more about her!!
chk this place out again last wk, it was fun! I'm a guy that goes solo to get my lapdance fix and I gotta say the grindage was great for an open area dance setting. Is Bianca (tall mexican girl, with big round ass) back yet? I still miss some of the girls that used to work here last year. Monica, Victoria, Jenna where are you?
so do a lot of the girls let ya feel them up at this place?
I know what you mean about that Dominican dancer. She's pretty fun, and has a good playful sense of humor... not taking anyone too seriously, let alone herself. She's an asset to the club. That said, are there any new dancers here? I was around a couple of months ago when they auditioned a spectacular tall slim brunette student type. She left and never saw her again. With new dancers turning up more often, I'd show up more.
used to go here a lot early last year. Does anyone know if Jenna, hot blond italian woman or Monica, superfine Isreali girl back?
Last week I had a few dances with a really hot Dominican blonde, don't know her name, she has medium length straight hair, slim, dresses especially sexy, I think. Had her do 2 dances for me one other time. Recognizing me, she came over, she at first grabbed at my dick, slid her legs across it much to my enjoyment. Then I was kind of all over her, sliding my hands over her legs and hips, eventually squeezing her ass quite a few times. Spanking her too, which she really seems to like a lot. Ending up doing 3 1/2 songs with her, afterwards a manager came over and told me to watch my hands, whatever.
how were the lap dances? BE DESCRIPTIVE
Beautiful antique decor, i know who cares right? nice mix of gals white, black, hispanic, mostly all hot and and sexy. recommend
Whatever happened to this dancer named Grace? Saw her around the holidays. She was caramel skinned Colombian mixed girl, with an amazing body and a beautiful natural rack on top. She also did crazy pole tricks whenever she was on stage.
Yeah, definitely shoes, no T-Shirts, no shorts.
I've been not let in when wearing $400-a-pair french leather walking shoes.
Please update you website with correct information as I was there with two friends Tuesday night and they could not get in because they were wearing sneakers. Obviously there IS a dress code.
They don't HAVE a day shift.
Are there lots of Brazilian girls who dance during the day shift?
The club is great, but they ought to hire a few new faces.
What is the cover here? Any "special" deals in the back room?
is this place back to what it used to be before they remodelled back in Aug-2004, Back then the LDs was soo hot, I was a reg, used to be able to hold a girl on the hips while she grinded, when she start to stand, I could pull her back down and any girl would just keep on going, caz they all knew how much a guy needed that contact. Has it gotten back to the LD heaven I once knew?
This club is great to come visit and work at. We are the more reasonable priced clubs in the city and the atmosphere is very relaxed and chill during the week. There are tons of beautiful exotic women to chat up with and the guys at the door will get u what u need. During the week, it's a little more laid back and quiet, but weekends start up later and with more of a younger crowd. All I can say is to come in and check out, you won't be disappointed. :)
Now that the holidays are over how are things at Privilege? Any new faces to come see?
this club any good? i was thinking of visiting when i came to new york city on a convention
i had a party there by far the best i have ever been to blows scores away thae chicksare smokin.......need to looses the high fee on the atm
if you want to come out and fill out an application....talk to marilla. she is the manager. i would say best time is 8-4.
Hello Maya. You seem to be the one to speak with. I am not sure if you still work at this club or not but I would like to ask you how they go about hiring bartenders. My friend and I would like to try this place out. Thank You
I was there for the first time last Friday, I found the staff to be very professional and upscale, from the guy in the bathroom to the cool bouncers. We arrived early (before 12) and that was a mistake, place was empty and the girls were agressive. Some of the asian girls were very agressive. As the place filled up it was normal club atmosphere. We had an excellent time and spent a lot of money. Dances varied from terrible "all-air" to very good. The girls chatted a lot and led to a very friendly atmosphere. I even met this nice mixed Indian gal... I will be back again, keep up the good work.
Hi guys have not been there in such a long time...I was just going through some some of the comments and noticed that someone "choo"? was asking about me the Lating hotie... well i am now living upstate...working for a brokerage firm trying to manage the 9 - 5 world ... I do miss the atmosphere and the challenge of dancing once in a while ..and of course the MONEY.. Lets see who knows i might be back someday.. I also wanted to say hello to Lisa and the girls ..your all very sweet down to earth nice girls...:)
The club is great nice decor and friendly atmospere. privilege is the complete upscale club valet attendants are pretty cool to talk too while enjoying a smoke. the girls are stunning. all in all i had a very good time. i plan on going again and agian. try it you'll like it!!!!!!!!!
Gossip section. I've read that Tommy Lee was here, anyone seen him?
Dont you remeber me anymore...Ru..Hope to see you some day. Arte you dancing anywhere else
Yes, my voice really IS terribly annoying. I've tried everything to take the edge off of it but nothing seems to work. Although after partying too hard this past weekend I've developed this crazy raspy-ness that seems to be working. Sort of like a chain smoking Kirstie Alley. Sounds gross, but it amuses the hell out of me. In any case - the cute redhead named "Alexandria" that someone mentioned might be the spanish Alexandria, who infact is not a redhead as far as I remember, but is definetely very cute. I'm glad to hear the girls are finally making some $ again at this club, tis that time of year again, I suppose.
Can anyone tell me if there is a cute red head named Alexandria or Alexandra there? She is pretty young, probably early to mid 20's?
Now that the baseball games are over, business at the club is really picking up and the girls are doing great. Watching it is like watching the rains end the hot summer in the plains. Money is pouring down and the girls are happy. Also nice is that management is bringing in some new dancers. And there's some promo where you can win a fabulous chopper motorcycle, which is on the stage.
Hi Maya...remember me...Ruwan..Hope to see you one day
hi, i'm a pervert with money, i dress nice, i'm clean and i'm always respectful of the dancers, but i love good action, i'd like to know from a girl's prospective, what club in ny would be the best for me, thanks
Did you guys see the calendar girls on the site. HOT HOT HOT. I love it when clubs actually put pictures of their girls. They must make more money having photos on the site because i know when there working along with names of the entertainers. Gotta love America. Jessica, what are your days.
Any new dancers of interest in the past three weeks?
so who are the hottest girls here these days?
Your comments are as annoying as your voice was when you danced at this place!!
Why do people always ask "do any black or spanish chicks work here?" of course they do. Aren't there black and spanish chicks working at every club in the city? There have been at every place I've every place I've visited.
do any black or spanish girls work here?
Sure there are guys who'll drop $200 for 10 lap dances in a series without a thought, but they're rare. The place where dancers have a chance of making money is with the guys that seem to be sitting around not buying. In fact, these guys have plenty of cash in their wallets, and they are just waiting for an excuse to spend it. There are plenty of women at Privilege even now that are wonderfully hot, but they don't know any better or just choose to give air dances. If guys are dumb enough to get one such dance, they aren't usually dumb enough to get a second. If these dancers would get a clue wallets would be leaving the club empty instead of full.
I actually don't think that's the problem, Anon. Ask even your relatively high earner how well she's been doing the last year or so compared to previous ones and I'm sure you'll see my point. Also, I think that the multiple dance scenario is more a product of the dancee than the dancer. Some guys just spend their money in chunks like that when they go to strip clubs - and some don't. Just my perspective.
The thing is, if you watch how the evening goes for different girls, some girls consistently get second or third dances, and some girls never do. And I think the difference is that the former girls aim to please, tune in, respond, and entertain. The others don't; they're doing fussy repetitive butt-on-the-belly air dances. I think the clubs would actually be better off if those girls moved on. The club would improve and business would improve with a hotter mix of entertainment.
Hi James - sure, I remember you. That was quite a while ago! Yes, I'm doing something very far removed from dancing nowadays - definetely a big adjustment for me. I don't know what happened to my old roomate - we sort of lost touch but last time I saw her she had gotten away from the industry as well. Hope you're doing well.
Maya, glad to see you posting. Remember you from a few years back when you brought some friends over from Paradise. Glad to see you've moved on... is your roommate still dancing anywhere in the city? She was nice, too.
Yes, the business is all about money - obviously. And of course it's reasonable that dancers be expected to take the good nights with the bad nights. But I still really think that regardless of all that, the house fees at most of the "upscale" places in Manhattan have remained too high to justify 1) the number of dancers, and 2) the gross increase in competitive businesses opening up over the last two years. What's important to understand is that most dancers are experiencing those "bad" nights almost every night of the week now due to the current industry conditions. It's just not what it used to be in a lot of ways, I think there's been a huge shift within the last 3-4 yrs.
Isn't the nature of the business to make money? for both the club and the girls. When a girl has a night where she makes $800 or $1000 does the club ask for more money? I don't think so. They are setting up the forum for the dancers to make their cash, if it's slow oh well you have to take the good nights with the bad ones. Just like girls who make money outside of the club, everyone knows 90% of the girls in the business date customers outside of the clubs. Where are you working now we met a couple of times and I would love another CR!!
Did you infer to regulars that you were going to go out with the guy eventually?
I really strongly disagree about the hefty house fee being a good thing. I think it just leads to the dancers feeling anxious about making enough money and thus giving the customer crappy, rushed, and pressured service. (Not that a lower house fee necessarily rules out that kind of behavior.) Dancers like clubs that have a good balance and where they feel like they're getting an ok deal money wise. If the club's gonna charge them over a hundred bucks a night, the management had better be promoting the place well and putting some kind of limit on how many girls they pack in there every night; otherwise most girls will move on pretty quickly. Unless you get some good regulars, you're pretty much screwed.
Does anyone know what happened to an Asian dancer named Nina? She used to work there last year.
Not bad, need a few more young and b girls. A little small but it is a good club to get a hands on experience.
What does Lisa look like?
there are hot asian dancers here!
Lisa is the hottest.
Who is the hottest girl working in Priviledge right now?
Now that I think about it, that "looks too much like Denny's" comment is EXACTLY what I don't like about the main feature of the new decor. I suppose we're supposed to appreciate the increased privacy, though.
Maybe having a house fee on the high side is a good thing. Dancers who are uninspiring of laps don't make any money and move on, making room for new dancers. Dancers here who pay attention, who are hot, who do a decent job with costume, have a nice personality, and do a little friction do well here.
Yeah, boy, I really miss the old days when there was integrity in the strip club business.
"There's no integrity in the strip club business anymore" - Yeah, understatement of the year! (although I don't know that there ever was any integrity in the strip club business) Anyway- I had the chance to check out Privilege's new look last week and would have to give it a mixed review. The new color scheme is great but they really need to lower the lights in there - there's a reason these places are usually dimly lit. I also thought that the cushiony dividers they put in to replace the old metal bars make the place look a bit too much like Denny's. LOVE the pole though. I agree that they need some more dancers, but that's never gonna happen unless they knock down that ridiculous house fee and stop being hardasses all the time.
Hey, is that to say that touching is not allowed in the VIP room? And it isn't $600 is it? That is crazy. There's a club in Stamford off exit 6 on I-95 called Beamers, where you pay $30 to get in back and touching is allowed. How do they make money and get away w/ it? There's a girl I would like to see dancing there, but if I cannot touch at all, why go there and pay $20/dance + house fee. No way. Another interesting addendum, the girl on the phone there said I'd have to come down to find out how much the back room is. Sounds like a mafiosi scam to me. Just be honest about what it costs up front. That's good business. There's no integrity in the strip club buz anymore!
There always appear to be lots of strippers of different ethnicities there.
Does this place hire minorities???
This is funny. I completely agree with you about this club's -- which I otherwise really like -- lacking buzz. But OTOH, when I think about it, I have no idea what "buzz" actually means. What do YOU think we mean when we say Privilege is a really good club but lacks buzz?
They shouldn't advertise for more customers, they should advertise for more DANCERS. Posting photocopied notes about the job around FIT, Hunter, Cuny, would be almost free. If they landed a half dozen hot new dancers, they'd have buzz, and with buzz, they'd have a party. The rest of this club is great (staff, bar, music, etc.) and the girls are great too, it's just that there's no buzz.
Management: Wanna increase business? set up a web site, post dancer schedules, have coupons for discounted parking and discounted admission, moderate drink costs, set dance times at no less than 5 minutes, reduce tip outs.... etc etc etc.
It's a shame if this club doesn't do enough business. It really is better than any comparable club in NYC.
The renos are fine, but what they need to do is up the rate of new interesting dancers to mix with the current repertory company. Can't they entice some of the aspiring models that are wandering around the city this fashion week to dance a couple of days at the club? They used to have more variety.
FWIW, I've never been there at a time when they had anything other than sports on the TV screens. I don't know about the rest of you guys, but I find it hard to look at naked women when I can be watching Manchester United instead. Well, once ONE of the TV screens was showing "Saturday Night Fever". It was funny watching that in a strip club.
wow, a pole!? Now I MUST go check it out.... What's with the videos on tv screens though? Sounds kinda weird - like shopping in foot locker or something. I guess it's one of those things you have to actually see. I hope they finally put down some new carpeting.
The new setup that they did with the stage extension is excellent; they now have a pole, and it really makes a difference in the dancing. There are music videos in the rotation on the video screens, and better stage lighting. The trees are far better than the old structural columns. And while doing this they didn't mess with the beautiful old historic antique bar area.
Just revamped. (Meaningless addendum to overcome this board's ban on short posts.)
