A Place for Gentlemen
So. The folks behind Rick’s Cabaret and the folks at Vivid (we’ll assume you’re passingly familiar)
have collaborated on the very purple new club Vivid Cabaret
. It’s now open, and the words below
are things you should know about it.
Feel free to do a little window-shopping first.
They’ve got a full-time go-go dancer
on a small platform in the front window. It spruces up the block quite nicely.
The tallest stripper pole in this city is now 25 feet.
It’s here. One of the dancers
has a trick where she slides full speed from the top and stops on a dime with her face just off the stage.
That mirror on the upstairs stage/balcony—it only works one way.
And not for the
Porn stars are launching radio careers in the booth next to that.
sipping bottles of Dom, some of Vivid’s better-known talent is on the air discussing... uh, the pros and
cons of universal pre-K. Something like that.
There’s a terrace. And yes, they can dance on it.
... When it thaws.
Sure, you’ve got to be a super VIP (or was that Super Bowl MVP?) for access to this outdoor-deck extension
of one of the third-floor private rooms, but we believe in you.
If you’re a public official, or aspire to be, no worries.
There’s a discreet
second entrance that looks very much like a classic New York walk-up stairwell.
Because that’s what it is.
