Elite men everywhere enjoy a high-class, luxurious Gentlemen's Club. Although the clubs vary drastically throughout the world, poles and private rooms are considered mandatory tools of the trade. Salacious entertainment has been around for centuries and when the Folies Bergère and Moulin Rouge became popular in Paris in the late 1900's, Europeans took notice and the attitude toward showing skin became much more relaxed.
In this century, every major city in the world has a variety of live adult entertainment clubs but the clubs in Vegas or Amsterdam are going to be slightly different than the clubs in Cleveland or Reykjavik. The services and customs differ more than you might imagine.
For example, in the U.S. all nude clubs can not serve alcohol, where in Copenhagen or Helsinki, they can. Some of the more casual clubs might be topless or bikini levels, while some clubs in Hamburg are brothels and are attached to hotels.
The more elaborate, elegant and luxurious stages have more than one performer and the dances are more staged. Feature dancers who are not involved in the nightly rotation during non-performance times are often the main attraction and the patrons get to know them by name. Nearly all clubs offer lap dances and private champagne rooms. Touching the dancers is against house rules in most clubs. Some might bend the rules for private dances, depending on the club and the dancer.
In Bangkok, Thailand, the Nana Entertainment Plaza is a four-floor structure with over 40 bars that offer various levels of erotic dancing and entertainment. Switzerland and some eastern European countries have legalized prostitution so the "gentlemen's clubs" have a more varied menu, yet sex is generally handled off-premises.
Nearly everywhere, the floor is the general admission section. There are premium lounges that are often called VIP or Champagne rooms where there is a substantial up-charge. Everywhere, near and far, the dancers are expected to entice customers to spend more money on drinks, dances and other guilty pleasures.
It's not easy selecting the world's most luxurious and pricey strip clubs, but we did the best we could based on a lot of research and paying attention to men's forums. Note, most of the photos are generic, as photography is forbidden for obvious reasons.
