If there is one thing that people in Atlanta love it's... well, these 29 things... but if there's just one thing, it'd probably be strip clubs. And why not? Unlike most cities, you never have to wonder if the ATL's clubs serve booze (they do!), or if the girls get nude (they do!), or which one is best (they're all pretty great!). You just have to figure out which one is best for you, and maybe where you can find the best deals.
That's where our guide to Atlanta's 11 best strip clubs comes in...
887 Spring St NW
What to expect: The classiest girls, well-dressed clientele, no stretch marks.
What it’s known for: It's the only club in town with an actual restaurant inside. Steaks, chops, and lobster are complemented by an exquisite lasagna and duck à l'orange.
Best deal: Free admission with your game day ticket stub. Of course this goes for all the Atlanta pro teams and college games, but if you can turn that high school wrestling admission ticket into an freebie, more power to you.
1888 Cheshire Bridge Rd
What to expect: 360 degrees of nudity. These girls will be in front, in back, above, and maybe even below you.
What it’s known for: The largest, most acrobatic pole skills. You’ll see women in all stages of contortion, in every position, and with every body part moving seemingly independently of the rest.
Best deal: $5 lunch drinks and $5 dances until 4pm.
789 Ponce De Leon Ave NE
What to expect: Very “affordable” drinks, women who are glad to be the age of your aunt, liberal hygiene standards.
What it’s known for: Naked “mature” women who collect your tips... and sometimes social security checks.
Best deal: Free admission before 8pm (and $2.75 PBRs all the damn time). It’s always dark inside the Clermont, so get in during the day shift and get yourself a bargain, plus a prime seat at the (sticky) bar.
2050 Cheshire Bridge Rd NE
What to expect: Cool girls, cool clientele, and ice cold beers.
What it’s known for: A chill, intimate vibe. It’s a place where everyone knows your name, and you aren’t going to be hassled for every last single. Also, they are VERY female-friendly.
Best deal: Half-priced thirsty Thursday drink specials. Free admission for servicemen and women, and for ladies in general.
4401 Fulton Industrial Blvd
What to expect: Girls that can tell a tale, cool trucker stories from other patrons, and a good value on a lap dance.
What it’s known for: Making it rain until 4am Monday-Friday, so you can shower, shave, and then head right to work. Just make sure you get that glitter off your neck.
Best deal: $4 vodka cocktail specials on “hump” day.
241 Forsyth St SW
What to expect: Highly energetic women, moves you won’t see anywhere else, and constant rain showers inside.
What it’s known for: Being the birthplace of twerking, the absolute go-to for Atlanta’s hip-hop moguls, and girls who are incredibly athletic, talented, and all have a music video resume.
Best deal: Free admission on Tuesdays (and karaoke?).
5275-A Roswell Rd NE
What to expect: Clean, courteous, and hot girls ITP.
What it’s known for: Being attached to a male strip club. Not that you’re into that stuff. You’re just into meeting the very “enthusiastic” women who are.
Best deal: Print off a free admission coupon at their website. Keep using it as long as you can get away with it.
6363 Peachtree Industrial Blvd
What to expect: Beside a damn good time, really cool chicks who just might want to be your real-life girlfriend.
What it’s known for: The most creative, fun, and food-friendly club on the Northside. You can really tell these girls enjoy being naked.
Best deal: Free daily buffet from 4-7pm, $5.95 lunch specials, and weekly themed costume nights.
2075 Piedmont Rd N E
What to expect: This cozy little spot that’s been located under the 85 overpass for nearly 40 years has a great DJ, hardworking girls, and a real rock vibe.
What it’s known for: Being mentioned in
Mötley Crüe's “Girls, Girls, Girls”, and personable girls who will probably let you know their real name after a few drinks and dances.
Best deal: A free entrance pass that's on their website.
1837 Corporate Blvd NE
What to expect: High-end girls, celebrities, and probably your neighbors.
What it’s known for: All the big name touring adult stars stop in here, almost weekly, to acquaint you with things you’ve only seen on the Internet so far. Get dances, autographed memorabilia, and a whole load of memories.
Best deal: $20 for a bucket of 5 beers and 10 wings.
2788 E Ponce De Leon Ave
What to expect: The wildest scene in town, especially if you stay until daylight.
What it’s known for: It's open until 8am on the weekends. Yes, that’s the closing time -- they even serve breakfast at 7am. Use this information with extreme caution.
Best deal? “You Da Man Mondays” with $5 dances, $5 wings, $4 top shelf liquor drinks, and $3 beers. And free admission before 5pm.

Virginia Highland's Clermont Lounge is oh-so many things: a dive bar, a live music venue, a frequent karaoke spot, and, perhaps most notably, Atlanta’s oldest strip club. What more could you ask for?
Known for a chill, intimate vibe. It’s a place where everyone knows your name, and you aren’t going to be hassled for every last single. Also, they are VERY female-friendly.

Of Waka Flocka Flame fame, (he named a song after this place) it's the go-to strip spot for rappers, from Lil' Wayne to T.I.
This is a male and female strip club sandwich -- on one side is a male strip club, (Main Stage), on the other, female, (Coronet Club). Just... try not to get them confused.
Known for their diverse selection of lovely young women, Oasis' famed lunchtime special provides a real “bang” for your buck.
Stop under the I-85 overpass and check out a pretty talented group of ladies dancing, as often as not, to guess what 80s hair metal song...Girls, Girls, Girls!
Pink Pony knows what guys want: a ton of inexpensive food AND scantily clad women. Stop by Pink Pony for some lovely ladies, plus wing and beer specials, or all-you-can-eat prime rib deals. Win-win.
