Strip clubs get innovative as lockdown regulations ease
Necessity is the mother of invention, it is said. Given that South Africa’s strip clubs have been in the doldrums during lockdown, the need to get their entertainers back to work is seeing some interesting innovations.
This week the East Rand-based Chivalry Gentlemen’s Lounge launched a new ‘strip club on wheels’ concept that it hopes will keep customers titillated and its ladies motivated until such time as things return to normal at the Germiston venue.
But, in these times of social distancing and COVID-19 health awareness, strict protocols will be maintained and a firm ‘no touching – for your eyes only’ policy will be maintained while the club’s party bus rolls around town. Masks and temperature checking are mandatory.
Chivalry has acquired and fitted out a special bus for the purpose and each trip will offer a high-level exclusivity. Only two-three passengers are allowed and six people in total, including the dancers/entertainers.
Should you be someone who wants to take exclusivity to an even higher level, you can hire the bus for yourself and fill the remaining slots with five entertainers.
The cost is R2 000 an hour. The mobile club concept began operating on 1 June and demand has been strong, Chivalry says. “We’ve been doing multiple trips per day,” notes Keenan Minne, social media marketing manager for the club.
He added that Chivalry “needed to find a way to do something different during lockdown”. It’s a party bus with its own TV, Wi-Fi, and luxury amenities, he explained. While the bus has a bar, alcohol is not being sold in Level Three due to the lockdown regulations.
“What we are trying to do is keep the ladies busy, keep the drivers busy … so that we can pay staff like the cleaners … so that everyone can carry on living,” Minne said.
Recently a Port Elizabeth strip club named at Candy’s Revue Bar launched a drive-thru strip club concept where dancers entertain patrons while they remain in their car. They can also enjoy drinks and snacks while the watch the dancers perform their routines.
