Staff doesn't care about customers – The more I think about this, the angrier I am. Went to Dancin' Bare, sat at tip rail, even though the dancers weren't really my style. Then, accidents happen, the girl kicked my beer onto me. Not her fault, I want to make this clear, I'm writing this review everywhere I can, so I know I seem like I'm griping.
The thing I'm mad about is the freaking barmaid. When the dancer tells you "I spilled this guy's beer, bring him another one" That should be your priority. She never even said she was getting my beer. She just left, I waited and waited, then I had to go, guess I don't get another beer.
She even came back to look and said "is there more broken glass?" (the glass was broken by the dancer kicking it off the rail) I was like, "yeah", then she walked off without saying a word. Nothing happened, nobody cleaning it up, No, "oh sorry, let me get you another one" How hard is that?
It is THE neighborhood club – Calling Kenton a "bad neighborhood" is a bit of a misnomer. I walk to this place as often as I drive, and not once been hit up by a dope pusher or beggar and just as often walking home at 1:00 AM can see a jogger or old folks walking alone. The only reason you see boarded up storefronts on the main street is the city is not letting the owners remodel without tons of permit money up front. The owners of several nearby businesses fear retaliation from the city if they work on their places and someone objects to it due to not getting their cut.
The girls are friendly and good looking, but things there are a bit threadworn and rough around the edges because the entire business has been hit by the economy like everywhere else around here.
Don't know about the bouncer cruelty thing because I am a big guy and former bouncer (not at that club) myself, but what I don't see there is the police feeling like they need to constantly cruise the parking lot or street nearby because of problems from the club. If the on site staff sniff a problem, they tend to react quickly in order to avoid the need for police. Staff at some other clubs seem to take pride in how often they get folks arrested, but that does not seem to be the issue at Dancin Bare.
Bouncers Assault Customers – Worst experience at a strip club ever. The place was empty and if the rudeness of the bouncers was not enough one of them attacked my friend when he was just standing in one place holding a beer. They grabbed his arm and put him in a choke hold when he tried to defend himself.
That bouncer should be locked up, The place is also extremely dirty and located in horrible area. Dancin Bare should be avoided at all costs.
attitude problem – Akira and mercedes were awsome although the overweight bartender who looks like fred flinstone ruined the whole experience for me.I have never been treated so bad by a bartender.I later found out from the bouncers that he is the bar manager and the owners cousin,I guess that is why I am one of 4 customers in the bar on a saturday night.
Eww! – Yuck dirty. Won't go near the place again. The entertainment was as dirty as the rest of it. This place should not be located in a residential neighborhood.
easly accessable – great access via the MAX yellow line (right at the station but i forget exactly which one) the ladies are awesome and a very friendly but watch the lottery machiens you can burn $20 very fast
fun for boys and girls!! – Hot chicks plus personality, and some of the best pole dancers I've ever seen!!! They make it a relaxed atmosphere that I noticed attracts many females as well as males. Amatuer night is a must for all!!!
