Pole Position: The Subjective Guide to San Francisco Strip Clubs

You pass them every day. Local history is built on them. In honor of our licentious past, and in a sincere effort to separate the women from the girls, one writer gets $500 from 7x7—and permission from his wife—to embark on 
a highly subjective tour of local strip clubs.

I’ll level with you: I’m not much of a strip club guy. I went to one for my bachelor party, but I’m hardly a regular. That said, I dig the idea of tawdry San Francisco, blinking lights, hired flesh, and slick-talking doormen. Luckily, there’s no shortage of grit on any after-dark walk down Broadway. The strip just east of Columbus is also the last vestige of our Barbary Coast past.

The 411 on San Francisco's Most Popular Strip Clubs: Cover, Ambiance and Bargains

Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club, 1031 Kearny St., 415-434-1301

Cover Charge: Your best deal is a $5 cover during the day. After 7 p.m., the price jumps to $10 on Sunday and Monday, $15 Tuesday through Saturday. On weekends, the price jumps to $20 after 2 a.m.

Ambiance: A fresh-faced crowd and basic setup: tables, bar, low light, loud pop music.

What You Get: It’s $20 for a short lap dance in full view of the club, $100 for three songs in the VIP dance lounge, and in the champagne room it’s $250 for 30 minutes.
