You want to see some ass? They want to see some cash. It works out perfectly. I don't want to be that jerk that doesn't give the Clermont Lounge 5-stars, but I must take off one star for the mild trauma I experienced during my more sober state. Although I was well aware that this was pretty much a cool, local dive bar that just happened to have strippers with less than traditional aesthetics, I don't think I really realized just how intimate the experience would be with the stripper practically dancing on the bar. The bartender and stripper were as nice as they could be and were definitely having a good time. Actually, I think they were having a GREAT time. During my more sober state, I tried not to look directly at the stripper but once I settled in things began to feel a bit more normal. However, I couldn't help but question the underwear selection. Baggy, white Hanes Her Way briefs being slightly swallowed by butt cheeks does not constitute a thong. But I'm not hating. I'm really not at all. I'm just keepin' it real kiddos. Just trying to paint that picture for you like a lyrical Bob Ross. The drinks were pretty cheap though, so if you are up for the experience and don't mind a little saggums and baggums you'll be a-okay. And to keep it, TREAL with you...that stripper was the first thing I thought of when I woke up the next morning so she must have done something right. I guess the little game she spit to me may have worked. As she wallowed to and fro to "Roses" by Outkast, she pointed me out and said "I bet your shit don't stink! I bet it smells like petunias!"

First thing to mention is that they have BEDS! Yes, BEDS! I have apparently been caught rolling around on the queen sized ones with friends after a night of drinking and partying while trying to convince a stranger to give a poll dance on the pole (?) off to the side. The club is just asking for trouble with that kind of set up. Second thing to mention is that the basement is one big dance floor, and it's filled on Friday and Saturday nights. The DJ's are that good. Along with the "hot" girls that dance on pedestals in front of the crowd. Third thing to mention is that the dress code is enforced. My friend had to drive all the way back to his house to change his shoes. And if you know the special word (when I went in March and April was "icon" you can get in for free - don't ask me how I know that or if it changes, but you can try it) Fourth thing to mention is that it's on Cheshire Bridge Road, and that means porn shops are plentiful. So after getting sweaty on the dance floor, and turned on by the beds, you can go porn shop hopping! Fifth, check the website for any special events or promotions. Sign up for the mailing list and get in for free some nights. Okay, now the place just sounds sketch, but it really isn't. Go with friends and leave safe; the cops are always pulling over drunk drivers leaving the club. I've always taken a taxi home and picked up my car from the 10 dollar lot the next morning.

So after multiple visits here in the past 6 months, I've made my peace with the fact that parking sucks and you really don't have much choice except valet for $10 (they take forever with the return) The staff at the door and up front at the hostess stand area are always very welcoming and friendly. I love the little decorative dancing marionettes on the side wall above the inside bar. I don't know why but they make me very happy : ) I like the music they play it's mostly Spanish. I like the patio out back but don't like that the hallway that leads to the patio smells like patchouli and the patio gets very smokey.
