Traditional Gentlemen's Club

Originally set in the United Kingdom, facilities at each club, typically located in historical buildings, often included a formal dining room, bar, library, billiards room, and parlors for gaming and other social activities.

The club was a "second home" where men could relax, get a good meal, and meet others that share common interests with men of same moral code. 

Traditional gentlemen's clubs grew in popularity throughout the 20th Century in all major developed countries, including the United States, Canada, India, Australia, Japan, and Hong Kong.

In Thailand, the Royal Bangkok Sports Club is the most prestigious private social club still active today.

And it's interesting to note that entertainment and live music performances are not a feature at these traditional gentlemen's clubs.

Even in the early 20th Century, the British Empire was boring and needed American entrepreneurs to spark the flame.

Striptease refers to a dance where a sexy woman slowly removes her clothing.

After World War II, veterans returning to America imported these styles of European dance.

They created strip bars all across the USA, mostly in run down nightclubs. And many of the these were low-class joints referred to as "titty" bars. They were known for "peep shows" and frequented by prostitutes.

However, in the 1990s, entertainment entrepreneurs, funded by organized crime and bustling drug trade, started to create prominent gentlemen's clubs in large cities like New York, Chicago, and Las Vegas. 

The largest venues were posh, costing millions of dollars to build. They included immaculate interiors, great bars, plus Member's only access zones, with some clubs having private rooms open all night.

So the new designed modern facilities catered to the same needs as traditional members only clubs built a hundred years earlier.

There was a place for men to meet business associates, not to read or discuss politics, but to close deals and enjoy the company of erotic dancers in a thriving club scene with gorgeous women.

The focus of attention was the beautiful entertainers (models, not prostitutes) called "strippers" that would typically perform nude for their clients.

These erotic dancers became part of pop culture during the 1990s. Hit movies from Hollywood, such as Striptease, starring Demi Moore, helped launch an adult industry worth USD 8.3 Billion in the US in 2021

There are now exclusive high-end "Strip Clubs" in all major cities worldwide including Moscow, Paris, Tokyo, Montreal, and Prague.
