Transphobic! Do NOT go here! – This site won't let me post a link so search "Trans discrimination at The Pink Pony" on youtube to see the video.
Here you see us as I've already shown my ID and gained entry to the club (after a funny look, but still). Then my friend, a black trans woman shows her iD and is refused entry. When we ask why the armed security guard says he'll have to get his manager's approval to let her in. He explains "it's about this", as he points to the gender marker on her ID. He says it's a 'restroom issue'. I said "she's a woman, she uses the ladies room". He says he'll still have to get approval. Finally I decide to take out my phone and start recording at which point he attempts to *take* my phone. I warn him not to touch it at which point he starts to try to hide his face and block the view. The woman you see briefly in the red and white striped skirt was identified as the giggling house mother who on a previous visit to the club (wherein my friend and another trans woman had no trouble getting in) confronted my friends in the ladies' room and ordered them to use the men's room. My friend very politely explained that (a) she had no idea what was underneath her skirt, and (b) what could and likely would happen if she were to enter the men's room presenting as she does. They were then asked to leave the club. Finally a dancer intervened and protested on their behalf declaring that if they left, she would also leave as my friends had spent hundreds of dollars that night tipping her and her co-workers. Do not give them a DIME of your money!
Strong-arm bouncers – The girls are nice and for the most part good looking. After we were there for about 30 seconds a waitress came over and asked if we needed a drink. We said that we were okay for the time being. She then said in a very rude manner "it's a two drink minimum". So my friend went on to buy two $4 waters and I got three $6 beers; after tips we were only out $59. Thats $3 for self-parking and $10 each for cover. Lap dances, which we got later are $10 per song and The VIP room varies by the girl.
I had been to the Pink Pony on a couple of occasions and had always spent upwards of a hundred and fifty dollars on drinks and dances, but last night I wanted to take it slow. I got a dance with a girl and tipped her amply and then walked up to my friend. The waitress who served us our drinks walked up to the two of us looking somewhat nervous and said, "there's a two drink minimum." I told her that I had already ordered two and my friend had just finished his third beer. She said the bouncers would kick us out if we did not order more drinks, completely unresponsive to our candor.
At this point I walked up to a bouncer and politely said, "I was given an ultimatum to order more drinks or get out but I've satisfied the minimum and am about to get more dances." The man turned to his sidekick, a less attractive Ron Jeremy look-alike and said "listen to this guy." Then when I reiterated the same story his friend said, "order more drinks or you're getting kicked out." He repeated this three or four times as though this would be his response to anything.
Finally, feeling bullied and realizing he would not listen I made the fatal mistake of saying, "I guess I'm talking to a hick and not a rational person." At that point, the guy immediately started yelling, bumped me in the chest and continued grabbing me before even asking me to leave. Ironically, he was yelling "I'm not a hick" while apparently disproving the point through his actions. I have a feeling he doesn't know what a hick is.
The bottom line is that the club is dirty and if you have even the smallest disagreement you cannot solve it by discussing it with the management or bouncers. You also cannot be certain the bouncers won't try to kick you out just as a way of extorting more money from you.
When I asked the guy outside if he was allowed to use force even though I was already leaving, he said eloquently, "he can kick you out for wearing a yellow shirt if he wants to." Then he added "now get the fk out of here" just to show how arbitrary he's allowed to be. If you are going to go to a strip club, by all means have a great time, just don't do it at this one.
Not what it once was. – I remember going to the Pony back in early 2000's, and I remember having a blast each time I went! The women were hot, the featured performers were crazy, and the vibe was fun. 96 Rock used to do a lot of fun events with them, especially when Southside Steve was there. The Pony used to be a crazy good time.
Recently though, it seems like the place has kind of gone down hill. Not sure if its new ownership or what, but it just doesn't seem like the staff and performers enjoy themselves as much as they did back in the day. The girls are just decent looking and not as much fun. Don't EVER go there between 2am and 3am. You won't get a lap dance to save your life and you can tell the girls are all tired and just trying to finish their shift. I had to ask one girl for a lap dance and she turned me down! Can you believe that?? A goddamn stripper with standards?? Here she is sticking his naked ass in front of some Mexican for maybe $10, and I was going to give her $20 and better conversation for the same amount of work. What a dumb broad! That NEVER would have happened 10 years ago. This place isn't worth the price of admission anymore which is too bad. Used to be a great place, or as great as a strip club can be anyway.
Not such a good time – Had drinks watched a few so so girls, not much energy in the place, everyone seemed a bit bored. Probably won't be back since there are so many other spots to go to.
Big Name with Sh*tty quality – Really regretted that I didn't read the comments on this site before I went there. If you thinking about spending some good money for some good time go ELSE WHERE NOT HERE. You get more with your money and freedom with your hands, instead of $10 "table dance", not a lap dance. Only a few girls were decent looking and natural. The rest were just Silicon Valley with a very cold attitude.
VIP room here was the biggest ripoff and the worst I have ever been to. Every girl I talked to told me $150 for 1/2 an hour, $50 for the room and $100 for her. So I negotiated with this girl $150 bucks the usual price that she will do everything to me but sex, and the same for me. Come to find out, it was $55 for the room and $150 for the her, and the b*tch didn't even do f**king sh*t. I even tipped the bouncer before came into the room. After the b*tch was dancing for me and he came in saying, you can't touch her, keep your hand back or I will put you out. Is this what a VIP should be treated after all the money he spends? So big F**K YOU Pink Poney and F**K YOU bouncer. I will definitely never go back to this place again.
It's ok if you want to go here have a few drinks and looking some T&A, but don't let them sweet talk you to go into the VIP room. It's just not worth it at all. Go to Follies you will definitely have more fun with your money.
BEWARE!!!!!! – Beware!!! Never pay your waitress with a credit card if you plan on settling the tab at the end of the night with cash. Took my friend their for his bachelor party, spent plenty of money on lap dances for my boy. Even sent him back to the VIP room, but when it came time to pay the bar tab, we paid with cash. The waitress took the cash, said goodnight. Get back check my credit card statement, and the waitress charged my card. So basically I got ROBBED!! What a disappointment. NEVER, EVER, PAY WITH CASH IF YOU OPEN A TAB WITH A CREDIT CARD YOU WILL BE VICTUMIZED!!!!!
Go elsewhere – This place is lame. They overcharged my card $200 for a beer. The girls are fat and old.
WOW.. had a blast – So the first time I went to the Pink Pony was for a friends bachelor. We had a great time. So a week or so later some friends and I went again. MORE FUN.
Now down to brass tacks...(The STUFF you need to know).
DANCES AND VIP: Table Dances are $10 per dance VIP cost is per girl IE you work it out with the girl. There is a room charge ($40 per half hour I think was a bit drunk) and you need to tip you waitress but thats any strip club you goto.
DRINK COST: Right on Par with Other Adult Clubs in Atlanta. Not as high as Ive paid and not the cheapest but not a rip off by any means.
Door Charge: Come in early and you dont get charged. Found that out our second trip and its saved us some cash. Its $10 per serson after 7pm i think and after midnight it goes to $20 cause the place is packed out. I do know that Cops, Firemen and Military get in free with ID. Cause a buddy of mine who was home on leave got in free and thats what the doorgirl told us.
THE GIRLS: WOW... they got them all and most are hot as hell. Yeah sure there are a few who need to retire but its great... some of them are a bit crazy but they are strippers.
I give it stars for being the a great place to party.
best club best food – Ok first impression VEGAS style club, gorgeous girls, real drinks and the most amazing food
MY 4 friend?s and i we got out on a Saturday for some fun we end up after a ride with our bikes to the pink pony south.
We enter the club after a small search from the security at the entrance.
Wow Vegas style baby everything luxurious.
One of the staff welcomes us at the door and asks us if it was our first time visiting the club?
We answer yes and he took us for a small tour
Man!!! It is a very fine club 1 big center stage 2 satellite stages at opposite sides of the club plus another upstairs floor overlooking the whole club down with its own bar and 2 pool tables AND a sushi bar yes a real sushi bar.
THE GIRLS oh my god the GIRLS YOU had to visit the club to witness the GIRLS Vegas style baby.
The DJ was announcing the new menu of (the pink pony tavern)
We grab the menu from the table and WOW what a selections
Definitely not your average bar food they have subs, Quesadillas, egg rolls, wings, shrimps, pastas even filet mignon and salmon. BUT by far the best gyro wrap in the south with that gyro white sauce that I use it to dip my ff in.
Next time you want to go out to the club choice is hands down PINK PONY SOUTH.
Biggest rip off club / owner in the country – I can tell ANYONE BEYOND A SHADOW OF A DOUBT...this place is a rip off, and JACK (I should be in jail.) GAFARTY..is a world class..A..... The last time I was there( and I WORKED in a class adult club) I stopped in for an after 18 round of golf for a cold beer. Gave the bar maid (little did I know it was one of Jacks many up close ,personal employees ) a 20, and got back a buck and some change. When I asked WHATS THE DEAL?...she says...I'll get my manager over and we will do a quick count of the cash drawer...O.K...Fast eye contact between the two..and guess what??? HE tells me she is over (which is a red flag for stealing anywhere else) and I'm wrong...2 seconds later I have 2 bouncers pick me up an toss me out the door. Being in the industry at the time(yeah It's dirty because of A holes like Jack Galardy...or how ever you spell your FRIGGING name) It has become not only dangerous,but if Atl doesn't get it together instead of padding their pockets with dirty $$$...well ..you know.
