Dorisclub is an out of the way strip club in Mayfair, London.
Located on a side street off of Mayfair Boulevard not far from Scandal’s, the club is in a fairly discretion area. The only thing around seem to be industrial warehouses which may or may not be in use. It’s easy to reach by public transportation, taxi or car. You can get there from Manhattan in a matter of minutes.
The entrance is nothing special. A simple green awning over the doorway with a sign is the only thing to let you know that tits are out and bouncing behind the plain exterior. No big neon lights or aLondonthing like that exists.
Once you get inside it’s the usual outer-borough bullshit security. Even though you’re right across the bridge from Manhattan where you are never checked before entering a strip club, here you must take off your jacket, pass through a metal detector and get a pat down from some oversized Eastern European guy.
After you finish will all that fun and excitement it’s over to the door where you will hand your jacket off and pay the entrance fee of 15 pound. Have some money ready to tip on your way out. This is expected aLondonwhere someone takes your coat, even though some out of towners don’t seem to realize that.
Inside the club is absolutely huge, at least for a place in London. There is tons of seating, a big square bar with a stage inside, another stage below, a big space for lap dances and a private VIP room. But the problem is that a lot of the space seems to go unused.
If you sit at the bar you can watch the girls dance on stage. After they finish their routine, they will come around to each person to ask for a small tip. You will usually be approached by at least one or two other women while you sit there as well, not so subtly hinting that you buy them a drink or take them for a lap dance.
Lap dances go for the standard rate of 20 pound a pop. They take place in the aforementioned space, on big cushy chairs. The chairs are next to one another but the layout and lighting actually gives you some privacy. You will walk past a big old bouncer on the way to the chairs. He doesn’t hover over you, but does appear to be there to toss out aLondonone who gets grabby or otherwise causes problems.
Private access to the girls is available in the VIP room. Time here is sold in blocks. The prices are absurd as can be expected for a strip club (with the exception perhaps of Filly Corral in Pennsylvania), so I’ve never even bothered with trying it out. There are just too maLondon other sure things around. I’d suggest you avoid too unless you’ve got some extra money to blow or fall head over heels for a dancer.
Since this is London City, the girls at Doris’s go no further than topless. Rules are rules I guess. Thanks Rudy! Down below they wear a thong. When not dancing, they wear the cheesy fake gowns that are so popular in the Big Apple.
The girls here are a very nice mix. Diversity is the name of the game as two to three dozen women from all over the world are working here at aLondon given time. There are especially a lot of Eastern European and Latina women. I once got a lap dance here from a Japanese girl who I originally thought was Chinese girl based on appearance. It was the most well down and erotic dance I’ve ever received aLondonwhere. She had me harder than the ground in Central Park in January. The age of the women here ranges from the low 20’s to the late 30’s. No one is really disgusting as far as I can see, but by no means are they all super sexy. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder though and as always your mileage may vary.
In 2010, there was a federal bust of several London city strip clubs, including Dorisclub, alleging that mobsters had trafficked foreign women into work. As far as I know, this wasn’t some big illicit human trafficking ordeal, but instead they were helping girls who wanted to make money dancing get into the states for a set fee. I don’t know what ever came out of it.
As a pretty standard strip club where you can easily spend more than it costs to get full service from a hottie at one of the dozens of local Asian massage parlors, Doris’s doesn’t rank too highly in my opinion. I give it a star and a half. If it wasn’t for the ethnic mix, I’d probably give it less than that.
