there was a shooting here a few months ago and now it is closed. it never had much business.
They don't clean the tables and it smells like poop.A girl tried to sell me a dance and she was picking at a scab on her neck while she talked to me. Nasty.
Going to be in town for Thanksgiving, and hope to hit a few clubs. Who are some of the hotter looking women I should look out for that also give good dances, when they stop by and ask for a dance?
Now called nicks cabaret. Nick from the dollhouse is running it
this club still hasn't updated their name on here to Escape or Aspen's or whatever it is called these days.
this club is ghetto and should be avoided. Go to their sister club Columbus Gold instead. Trust me on this one....
this club is sometimes open on sundays but sometimes not. management at this club is constantly changing so you never know the hours.
Rachel's and Escape have similar ownership along with cols gold, so she basically just transferred to a different location.
she is at rachels. m-f at 8pm .
what a rip off. during the uptimes they clip the songs short. basically like paying $60 in the VIP for 2 songs. Better off going to Sirens ($40/2song) or Club X ($35/2 songs)
Surprised she didn't go back to Sirens. She still has lots of fans there
I heard starr is now working at rachel's
They were suppose to have a grand re-opening with a steakhouse menu but they still are not serving food and never will! The door guy was an a-hole demanding a tip threatening to tell me I'll never be allowed to use a free pass again unless I tip him. What a jerk.
Club Escape is having a re-opening party January 19th. They are suppose to have a steakhouse menu as well. I doubt this will be sustainable because they barely have any customers and the seating in the club is poorly arranged. Not to mention the downhill economy of the area.
The VIP room is now $250/30 minutes instead of the old $150/30 minute price. I refuse to pay that much when the dancers here are not even that cute. I'd rather go to Club X, Cols Gold, or Kahoots and pay $250 for a HOT dancer.
She is the best looking girl there?!.......Sad.
I don't care who is managing the club. There was no stage show and the bar is wayyy too cramped.
Get over it. She is a very nice lady and looks better then all the others there. I love talking with here. I will keep comming there as long as she is working. Grow up.
Only when she needs too?! I guess times can get hard as a general manager. Just because you have been in the business for over 50 years doesnt make you a business woman. To say you "only dance for regulars" would be just as bogus of a statement seeing as how unprofessional and rediculous that would sound also, so no need for a rebuttle.
No i'm not . only when i need to . sometimes i have customers that come to see me but i dont dance much anymore. i have lots of things i need to do.
who cares about her. She is a control freak and damn near 40 anyways. Plenty of better clubs around in the area like Sirens or Club X.
Are you dancing regularly?
"Dallas" if I were her I'd hate you too. She has a tendency to be like that to people she "thinks" she has known for years, but she truely doesnt have a clue. Your a sweetheart and I enjoyed working with you years ago. Her loss. From the sounds of things it wouldnt be a benefit to any of us to work under her mediocre management.
I saw their sign saying they are going to open at 2pm instead of 6pm. I don't see how they can do this because they barely have enough dancers to work their already limited hours. Still not open on Sundays either.
Star a GM. Cracks me up.
I will return in hopes that Star is dancing when I'm there, call her what you want; GM, bartender, dancer, it doesn't matter as long as she is dancing. The last time I was at Escape there weren't any dancers only Star and a "bouncer". Not sure how she would be taking money from the current dancers if they aren't at the club
star would have never said that to you. she is doing the best she can. she is a great person and i like working for her. oh, ya, who are you and who cares?
And for the record.. I WAS the ONLY girl at Sirens to drive the Sirens car, cause I proved myself to be responsible and know what I was doing. I was also the only girl, who was paid to promote dreamgirls. So obviously I AM attractive and know how to carry myself in a professional manner. And I at least have the common sense to not steal from my dancers and wonder why nobody wants to work for me.
I have to say this club deserves better. While Star mite have been around long enough to know the "stripper" side of the business, there is ALOT more to running a successful business, I know this cause I am a local business owner. I do know that they could have help with bartenders, door, housemom, etc, cause I personally applied for it. Stars exact words were that I was "not attractive enough" and "she doesnt want "my kind" in the club! Funny cause she has not worked with me in over 4 years. But thats what they have running the club, i give it a few months and shes toast if they want the club to be staffed!
any problems that happen should be taken to the person in charge. they cant fix if if they do not know about it.
I don't like how they have $12 table dances at Cols Gold but they don't bother with table dances at Escape. Also I overheard bouncers talking about drug dealing - I do not feel safe and comfortable at this club so I doubt I will return.
I have known Star since her days at Dreamgirls. She is a very professional and experienced dancer. I thought it was genius of these owners to hire her as GM, No one knows more about this business. I have heard that, because of difficulties attracting and keeping dancers and other help, she has had to double as bartender and triple as dancer. I dont think its her fault that Escape cant keep employees. No touch dance policies, drink hustle, and agressive bouncers keep customers away. Without customers, no one can make any money. But give Star some credit for doing her best in a tough situation.
I think the club is a nice one. I have had fun everytime I've been there. Everyone I have meet has been very nice and I will keep going in there.
I so agree with the previous comment, you have to lead by example, if the dancers are there to dance and make money then WHY would ANYbody else.. bartenders, managers, housemom, waitresses do dances? They should push the clients to get dances with the girls! DUH! Looks as if "starr" should just put her heels back on and get back on the pole and quit robbing her dancers, she wont have many left doing that, cant say I blame them. You get a paycheck and yet you dance?! Get your shit together.... boring.... boring... boring club! Columbus gold blows this place out of the water, actually DREAMERS blows this place out of the water! Ha what a joke!
I really can't believe that a person who is a GM can also be a bartender, waitress, and a stripper. Oh and don't worry if her regulars come in hopefully nothing happens in the club while she goes and does private rooms with them!!! She thinks she is the Starr of the club lol.
this club is sad and depressing. ugly dancers, pot head staff paranoid that everyone is undercover agent. I almost most a dance from an ugly dancer just out of sympathy it was so depressing. I was shocked to find out columbus gold owns this club because cols gold is so much better.
already going down the drain...they cut back hours from opening at 4pm to now opening at 6pm. No other strip club I know opens that late. Lazy management. the club usually has more people outside in the smoker's area than in the club itself.
Escape now has free passes in the Ohio night vision magazine and The Other paper. Now the place gets full of customers instead of just being an empty club. Kudos to management for their marketing.
Where are the free passes on the website???
They run a 2fer1 every hour but supposedly you can do them any time you want if you just ask but even with this 2fer1 discount it is a rip off considering these are strict no touch dances. Dancer wouldn't even let me touch her hips they were so uptight. Bouncers also have a staring problem and stare right at you doing the dance ruining the experience. Better off going to Dreamgirls, Club X, or Kahoots.
I have been in here about 4 times and love ladys are great and so is the staff. I think everyone should try it. They will have a great time. I know I did.
Yes Dockside has been reopened as Escape but it is boring and only about 5 dancers working on a friday night with about 8 customers. They should do some marketing or free admission campaigns to fill the place up with most customers to tip the ladies there. All the locals are going to Doll House or Club X because they have free admission passes on their website.
This club is open! It called Escape Gentleman's Club now and I strongly suggest that everyone check it out. Great staff, beautiful girls, good drink and dance prices!
It will never open. And the guy looking for Selena, she works at the Xcalibur usually.
I read in Ohio Night Vision magazine that Dockside dolls is reopening as Club Escape...any details on it?
Cbus sucks. Just know this.
Hi At what clubs can a visitor from California get a good grinding lap dance and bust a nut or two? Sick of all the air dance crap.
There used to be a girl who danced here whose name was either Serena or Selena....pretty brunette, early dto mid 20's nice figure with huge natural boobs and an outgoing personality....that was like 18 months ago when I was in town so she's probably retired by now I guess lol. Anyone know if she is dancing here still or somewhere else? Would love to see her again when I'm in town in a few weeks!
We just tried to open this location and the problem is that the liquor license is no longer available. A new liquor license cannot be obtained for this address due to past criminal activity. That should close the bantor!
so that new club whispers cabaret is already out of business after 5 months.. I think it is because they had a bad location (hidden behind a grocery store in an apartment complex) and it might have done better if they just remodeled the old dockside dolls instead. Dockside dolls has a great location and was nice and spacious inside. I am surprised a successful club like Club X does not buy it and move their operations to someplace more visible from the main street.
Michigan clubs are really laid back where you can touch and be touched. Are there any clubs like that here in Columbus area? I was really disappointed from the lap dances here. Or do I have to spend more money to get some hot dances/action?
Yeah it seems that mgmt is more interested in making money off the girls with the house fees, tip outs , etc. than in greeting customers.
You can find Selena working at Club X on saturday nights. You can find Aspen working at dreamgirls on saturday nights. This club did have one of the best locations. Right next to a 24/7 Walgreens and 24/7 CVS. After clubbing I could go pick up milk, eggs, bread, etc. lol From the outside it did have a nice appearance but it became low class on the inside when they installed metal detectors.
I know this place has been closed for a while but, I had SOOOO many good times in there that I just had to say something. In it's prime this was the best club ever. Remember a young Aspen with a ass that would bring tears to your eye's, pre-baby and drama? Also Selena just started dancing and was so very fine and innocent also pre-baby and drama. Then there was Madison, Amanda, all pre-baby and drama. I think there is a common theme going on here. Long for the good old days of strip club glory. Now it's just a bunch of loser management hustling there own girls!! The customer is definitely an after thought now. Sad.......
this place sucked but it had a very easy to find location (right on a main road) and close to I-71. I hope new management takes over and turns this club into something good. Also I remember when I was here a dancer told me it is owned by a chain...any one else know of the other clubs in the dockside corporate chain?
First the hooter's across the street went out of business, then Dockside dolls went out of business, and then Danny's Gold Fox went out of business...it seems like Route 161/E. Dublin Granville in general is going downhill. This club (Dockside) has been closed for over 1 year...but I keep hearing rumors from dancers that they are reopening soon but the parking lot still looks abandoned and has weeds growing all around so I doubt it.
hey i was wondering if this club has a housemom, Im a housemom in the detroit/ dearborn area I also run a small business as a traveling store selling dance wear, dance shoes, jewelry and other accessories. I do travel around the state and outside of the state at times and set up in clubs and give the girls an opportunity to purchase dance wear and things at very reasonable prices. I'm wondering who can I contact to see if I would be welcome to come to this club and let the girls see what I have to offer, I do have a few dancers that do travel with me and work the clubs im invited to for the nights im in town. Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks Jo Ann Fantasy Nights Dance Wear
Will be re opening soo as lollipops
Out of business!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This place is currently closed. It has been closed for several months now. I heard from one stripper at a different club that it is being remodeled, but who knows how reliable that info is. Also Danny's Gold Fox down the street is closed down.
does this place have a phone number? i cant find one that works.

I don't know her, but most of the good ones that were still there at the very end went to Rachel's. If she's not there, they might have a clue where she went.
Looking for a dancer who used to work here. Went by Dusty? Green eyes, great fake C's, amazing tan, sometimes blonde sometimes brunette. Any of her regulars know where she dances now??? I miss those great lap dances!
I heard from a dancer at Gold Fox that Dockside Dolls is not out of business but is closed for remolding. However, I remember going to Dockside Dolls in March 2008 and one of the girls telling me she is afraid of moving to Columbus because the laws are so strict and this club could be shut down any time now. She had a one hour commute from Cambridge, OH. I gave her my phone number to keep in touch if it does close down but she never called lol..go figure, she prolly just ripped it up. I also heard one male patron in the club talking about how he almost hooked up and had a threesome one night. lol, good times and memories...
just want to thank mike ross and everyone else in managment for putting us all out of work.promises of this and that and being a competitive club.wow i swear if i didnt know better id bet you were abes brother.u suck
Even though Dockside Dolls is out of business. If they try it again (temporarily) without a liqour license, will they try it for a short period of time with fully nude dancers?
Out of business :-( 3 years ago this was still the place to be. They ruined this place with a shitty remodeling job.
looking for a dancer named blaze -- short red-head, punk-goth look -- used to dance at dreamgirls . anybody help?
Is this the Andi formerly of Sirens? Blonde, older, yet incredible fit with great hands?
hot girls. Andy is amazing.
Does Selena still dance here? Short Brunette, very large natural chest, pretty and great attitude. Anyone know?
Does Tia still dance at Dockside or is she just the bartender?
I'll even admit, it is getting better with the new manager.
Going to dockside was the best time i've had in a long time. Dockside is really getting itself back together after their fall. This club is worth your time. the women are so hot. there are also many different varieties of woman so i highly reccomend it. Be sure to check out the hot ass bartender. The only dissapointment was that she wasn't a dancer!!!!!

I am a paying customer that travels I thought you were aloud to have an opinion on this site! I like several clubs in Ohio that one is my favorite when I am in town.
I am that guy, stop tossing your adds around all over this site. If you want to draw customers from c-bus spend some change and put a coupon in the other paper.
the last guy is right have you ever been to Diamonds in Centerville that place put this one to shame
There is no way you can place this place as best in Ohio. Where have you been?
My friends and I had a great time, id did seem for the size of the place they could have had a few more girls, however the ladies that were there were hott and knew hoe to give a good dance, never saw a girl named Karma, did meet Jeff, he seemed really cool, He hung out with us for a while, he even introduced us to the owner Brett. Brett seemed kinda standoffish. dont know how this place was before but its the best I'v been to in Ohio
Um, can someone explain to me what the hell has happened to this place? Where are the girls? Where are all the cool people who used to work here? Where's the party? Certainly not at Dockside. You would think that the people that own this place would take off their blinders for just one min and see how this place has bottomed out. Seriously, how is this place making money?
screw dockside. they've lost their hottest girls and their best dj's. it's just plain sad to see how this place has been reduced to an empty shell of it's former glory due to a string of poor management decisions. yes, at one time it was THE place to be, but these days for anybody looking for a solid good time, you'll find the action right up the street at X showbar (former Xcalibur, but completely redone). that is where all of us go now.
if u think karma's fat n she gives the best dance and u kno what shes a sweetheart n she doesnt even work there n e more shes at x now b-cuz jeff and every1 kno's who he is hes a major dick...
Sirens or Kahoots. They are the only places where I ever drop way more money than I should have.
We used to love this place. Sounds like it has taken a major dive for the worse. Where is the best place to go now in Columbus?
it's not the law, it's the management
Wow! Is this the effects of the new Ohio laws that passed? Was in there last spring and the placed rocked. Was in there Friday night around 11:30 and there were 4-5 dancers and about 7 customers. Very sad. Plus a police officer stud back in the corner watching then he escorted a customer out, for what reason I don't know? I left after 20mins.
This place still needs to be fixed up to be a legit contender again. Bathroom smell still bad. Entrance still messy. Also do the girls a favor and put them back on a 2 song rotation. If there aren't enough dancers offer more up times. Just because the place isn't busy doesn't mean up times won't help. Trust me. I follow the magic and the magic is not here right now.
you can not judge all of the girls on the attitude of others!!! the club is comine back it will take some time the reason alot of the great girls left was because of the nasty old men that wants their dick sucked for $1 go down on high street and find one and just because a girl told your nasty ass to go fuck yourself doesn't mean she is a bad dancer it means she respects herself people like you are the reason the law was put in place in the beginning
what happened to the days of annamarie, dusty , and mia? they made that club
Did you go to the couch room? IMHO the remodeling backed there killed the club. That room is a disaster.
Lure girls out of town??? Why would I want to lure girls out of town. From what I saw this week, the Columbus girls are nothing but white trash. Why would I want them to come out to some other club and poison that talent pool too??? DD is another situation where the club itself looks good. The infrastructure is there, and if management would catch a clue, they could dominate the market. DD had its heyday, and its just sad to see how far they have fallen. I don't care about pasties or other rules, just maximize what you have got and DD could be great again. Glad I don't have to be back in Columbus till spring 2008.
I replied on Kahoots too, but you are dead on with this club. It has hit bottom, though I kind of wonder if you aren't trying to lure girls out of town. To what end I have no idea.
Will not go back since they have back their liquor license. I only like it fully nude!
Did they fix that aweful shitter smell? That was really really ridiculous. Real buzzkill or boner-be-gone depending on perspective.
they got there licences back and are coming back up in columbus
Will pay for how to get hold of Angel. She came back from SC early in the year, but worked here for several years off and on. just give me an email address, it's easy to make one.
does anyone know where the cute brunette by the name of selena is? short, large chest and very pretty. pls post response
