One of the WORST Strip Clubs in Atlanta (FOR CUSTOMERS) – FOR CUSTOMERS:
Be prepared - this club has undergone an extreme transformation over the years and not for the better. This is no longer a mixed/diverse establishment - it is very much a predominantly BLACK strip club (especially at night). Which means the crowd tends to get very rowdy, aggressive and just plain ghetto. This club is VERY money hungry and will allow almost anyone inside, just to get a few extra dollars. What they don't understand is that the quality of the customer effects EVERYTHING---including the atmosphere, safety, dancers moral, the quality of the dancers and overall revenue. Affluent customers who come just looking to have a good time are turned off by the thugs that are starting to frequent and with the nightly club brawls and the recent shooting that left one of their club bouncers DEAD back in November 2010, this club has become one to avoid.
They also have a new DJ that is horrible and you will find that the quality of dancers is absolutely RIDICULOUS! Lots of fat girls with ugly faces that have no discretion or class about themselves, and will try to hustle you for even the lint in your pocket! There may be a handful of pretty girls there but again the poor management, unsafe environment and the inability to make money in this club are sending most of them to more attractive clubs. Bottom line, Shooter's Alley has become a hell hole and if you are a selective customer who wants to go some place to relax, have a good time, hear great music, feel safe AND see beautiful women, AVOID SHOOTER'S ALLEY at all costs!
One of Atlanta's WORST Strip Clubs (FOR DANCERSS) – FOR DANCERS:
For anyone considering working at this club, may I suggest that you really look at other options. Shooter's Alley is no longer a place where a dancer can come to make make money, earn a consistent living, be protected, feel like management cares and go home with their dignity. First, there really is NO money in this club and even the most skilled dancer will find it difficult to make consistent money there anymore. All of the spenders have gone elsewhere because the quality of the club has hit rock bottom. Dancers now have to deal with a bunch of broke THUGS who want to come in, harrass you, watch you dance naked and not spend anything! And now that there really isn't a means to make good money, all of the good dancers are going elsewhere - leaving a bunch tacky girls with bad weaves, bad attitudes and who are so desperate to make rent, they are willing to do anything! These aren't' the type of ladies you want to work with because they will make your job that much harder and customers will now expect you to do more, for less. No money in a strip club means that you're dealing with a club of angry strippers, lame customers and hostile management! Expect to be treated like a HOE, having to walk around begging for dances and going home with a headache every not, not even having made the kind of money you need to deal with it all. The atmosphere is just ridiculous!
You will also have to deal with the "shittiest" management ever. They don't care about the dancers whatsoever and run that club like a slave ship. Be prepared to be degraded, talked down to, cursed at, talked about and hustled - all by mgmt! One of the owners treats the club like his own personal candy jar and sleeps with some of the girls (so unprofessional). The general managers & the "House Mom" (she's a fat, old ex-stipper from the 1920s... and a total BITCH) spend their nights cracking the whip & yelling about almost anything. They act like "pimps" and will treat you like dogs, with absolutely no respect or regard for you as a woman. Overall, it is just a very stressful, hostile environment and you will not make enough money at that club to even want to deal with it all.
There are far too many other clubs in Atlanta that treat their dancers better and make it more attractive to work elsewhere. Shooter's Alley is a joke! Other little things about this club that you may not like is that the music is horrible, they don't do any promotion to draw people in, there are no real incentives like most clubs have (i.e. a discounted house fee on a certain night or one free drink per night, etc) and there is no bathroom in the dressing room. Also, they impose a $60 house fee at 10:30pm and if you aren't there by 11pm, you can't work at all. My only reason for saying this is because there are other clubs in Atlanta that charge that much money for signing in as late as 12:30am! They really want you there a full 8-hrs to stand around an EMPTY club and if you are not there early, be prepared to pay the cost. Another thing they're starting to do (which is ILLEGAL) is imposing dancers on a schedule and making you pay $50 if you don't show up. As a dancer, you are an independent contractor which means you are NOT suppose to work on their schedule anyway. Another money making opp! If customers wonder why the dancers are walking around angry & trying to hustle for every dollar, it's because they aren't making any money and on top of it they're having to tip out $50-100 a night minimum, depending on what time you get there (and this doesn't include xtra to the DJ).
For the respectable dancer, please WAKE UP because this is not how a strip club should be ran! Shooter's Alley is not the only option in Atlanta and it's when you stop letting them treat you any kind of way and talking to you any kind of way... they won't. You do not work for the strip club - they should be working for you because without the dancers... there is no strip club.
Worst in Atlanta – Terrible Customer Service & the music sucks now, the best dj they had is no longer there he use to work weekends now they have some boring guy working. The girls are just hustlers and they all seem either drunk or high on something. If you want to have a good time this is NOT THE PLACE FOR YOU. The drinks also taste like water. This is the bottom of the barrel for adult entertainment. The day manager looks like a throw back from the 1950s trying to act like a mob boss. What a joke.
It was good when I was visited in Feb 18,2004 – I went in Feb 18,2004, that was my project's first day, on the way to my apartment , I got myself last in here, I could not go back to my apartment around 2am, so I decided to stay back till early morning then I went to office right away, and got sleepy all over day, then I was visited on 24th Feb, I thing, those time the girls were, baby, and other 2 white girls, one short mexican girl, african girls etc., I was enjoying when baby was dancing for usher's song..then I gave dollars to the girls, one was tall white girl, new girl was introduced by her father in my next visit that is on 24 Feb,2004 over all it is ok for $2...you watch them for entire night...from 7 to 6am...girls were good that time, I do not know now.. they can come up with web cams now, so that everybody can watch in the net...
Not very diverse – I have been here many times off & on throughout the years. They use to have quite the diversity when it comes to girls, but these days - there is pretty much only african-american gals. I still have a good time there, but do wish they'd bring on some other races as well.
What the foshizzes – WAA THE FAAAAAAAKKKKK, them fat bitches need to get ottta there!
them beeeeotches are Hustlers – they'll hustle u for ur money....they'll tell u its for 1 dance which is $10.. and then them bitches dont stop dancing and then tell u.. it'll be 40 bucks.. wtf..
ok atmophere pick your dancers carefully and you will be satisfied – This was my first time in Shooters. It was the Friday after New Years so i decided to just go to a spot and just chill and look at a few ladies. i usually go to Strokers but decided to try something new. They dont have as many beatuful black females as Strokers but they do have some, along with females of other races. I sat at the bar just in front of the main stage and ordered my first drink which was a beer that cost 4.25. I gave the bartender a 5 and she didnt even think bout giving me my change back but it was only 75 cent so i said f&*# it and sat down. There were a group of 4 or 5 dancers sitting just down the bar from me chatting and seeming like they were having a good time. One of them came up to me and struck up a conversation so i decided to let her give me a dance. she put some effort into it so i tipped her well. After that dance i noticed a girl on the stage furthest away from me who gave me a perculiar feeling. after she came off stage and walked near me i asked her for a dance. To make a long story short after 2 songs we chatted and she made me an offer i couldnt refuse!!! We went to VIP and i got my fifty bucks worth of "special"......very "special" time in there. so after that i was pretty much satisfied with my experience and will be returning to shooters in the future.
MACENZIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – Went there today to celebrate for a belated birthday celebration. The experience at the club this time was very exciting due to the fact that Macenzie was working. She is by far the best stripper in any clubbing experience I've had. In fact she is Atlanta's best kept secret. The girl was gorgeous, with a very engaging and friendly personality. It was the best belated birthday present to oneself.
DAY SHIFT – Shooter alley has the best day shift around. Its very LOW KEY and personal. They have the best choice of women. Very diverse. Lunch special is great and its low key. This white girl Macenzi showed me the best time she can dance and she's hot. Alot of talent.
