People who have never been to a gentleman’s club or stripper bar often have a boat-load of questions. The same holds true for people interested in visiting RI Dolls for the first time. Sometimes, even people who have visited our club before have questions about the club. Here is a list of 7 gentleman’s club frequently asked questions, and their answers:
1. Does RI Dolls have a dress code?
The short answer is: not really. There is no official dress code at RI Dolls, but you should always look good when you come to visit. If you show up at the door looking like a grub, then don’t be upset if you aren’t allowed in. This is a classy club. We also recommend that you leave you baseball cap at home or in the car. If you are having a hard time deciding what to wear, then put on nice black dress pants, a button-down collared shirt, and pair of decent shoes. Notice I said shoes and not sneakers. If you don’t own a pair of shoes, make sure the sneakers you’re wearing are not all scuffed up and full of holes. Keep this in mind: The nicer you look, the more Dolls will want to hang out with you.
2. How much should I tip the erotic dancer?
If you’re sitting at the main stage, then you should tip a minimum of a dollar a song. If the stripper does something amazing, then definitely show your appreciation with a larger tip. It’s common to give Dolls $5 tips, and sometimes club patrons give $10, $15, and $20 tips. If you buy a table dance or a lap dance, then you should give a minimum of $5. A $10 tip is better. Since this is how an erotic dancer makes a living, the more money you tip, the more time a dancer will spend with you.
3. Do I need to tip the server and other club employees?
No, you don’t have to tip your server, the bartender, or other club employees. But, it is highly suggested that you do so. If you are really craving to hear a certain song, tip the DJ when you request it and it’s almost guaranteed he’ll play your song sooner rather than later. The more money you tip, the better your service will be, and the more fun you’ll have at RI Dolls. If you plan on visiting RI Dolls often, and you’re a great tipper, the club’s staff will quickly remember you and you’ll be provided with superior service.
4. What’s the best time of day to visit RI Dolls?
There really isn’t a best or worst time to visit RI Dolls. It depends on you. If you enjoy large and noisy crowds, then visit RI Dolls on a Friday or Saturday night around 10 PM. If you prefer a low-key experience, than come in around 3PM in the afternoon when it isn’t so crowded and you can have more one-on-one time with the Dolls. If you are looking to see as many different strippers as possible, then plan your visit so it straddles the dancer’s shift change. You can call the club to find out the exact time the shifts change on that given day.
5. What’s a private dance?
In the strip club industry, there are all kinds of dances, including table dances, lap dances, private dances, and more. Basically, a private dance is when a Doll performs just for you, versus a performance on the club floor where all the other customers sitting around you can watch your dance for free. Usually, a private dance happens in a more secluded area of the club, like one of our semi-private rooms.
6. Do I have to have a table dance?
Of course not! We want you to have a great time, and if that means you don’t want a table dance, then don’t get a table dance. There are so many other things to do at RI Dolls, from enjoying a few cocktails while you take in the sexy view, to getting a massage or watching a Doll in the shower room.
7. Am I allowed to touch the dancers?
Sorry, but you are not allowed to touch the dancers at RI Dolls, or any other club in Rhode Island. In fact, it’s illegal to touch them! If you are so turned on by the stripper dancing for you that you can’t keep your hands to yourself, you will get a warning. This warning may come from the dancer, or from the bouncer who has been keeping an eye on you. If you do it again, you’ll probably be kicked out of the gentleman’s club. If you feel so bold as to reach out and touch a stripper who’s performing on stage, then you could be kicked out of the club without a warning. The best thing you can do is to keep your hands to yourself and enjoy your stay at RI Dolls.
