harmony reopened but reviews are not good
Given the city's libertarian approach to SW, the Harmony has potential to rise to its former glory.

Would be truly ironic if Harmony fully reemerges from the pyre of draconian New York while disgraced, drunken Giuliani ends up being remembered as America's bankrupt, unhinged mayor.

So in the past few months I wanted to change it up ans try out some of the previously mentioned places on here.

First place I went to was Rick's Cabaret and I have to say its a good place if you want a large variety of girls. You get what you pay for and the vibes are great when the place is busy. Definitely plenty of pretty girls who are waiting to take your every cent. There are days though like yesterday that it is dead and you can tell the girls just wanna go home. I'd say its a good place to get a few dances and then head to amp.

Second place I've visited was Le Rouge Lounge. A more open area with plenty of seats and the bar facing the center stage. I've only gone once and the choices were not my taste. You can get dances up on the balcony overseeing the stage which is nice view. Might come back around again on another day.

Last place was the Rosewood Theater. This place is a little more intimate setting I feel and has a wider variety of ladies. I've visited this place twice and have had my cash burned in no time. Girls here will take payments through the apps so even if you run out of cash they can try to hose you down for more. You are allowed to explore a lil more at this place but personally its a little far. Def a place I recommend trying out.

I haven't tried Sapphire or some of the other clubs but maybe throughout the year I'll give them a shot.

Rudy Guillini closed it as the other spot around 27 street .
They were great fun places on the cheap .
The “new “ Harmony is upstairs from the old Harmony location on W22nd that Rudy shut down in 1998
They are open on Friday nights and I think Wednesday nights as well. I tried it out a few weeks back. When I got there only one girl was working. Probably I would not return for a variety of reasons. Reviews on other sites have been meh

Bottom line ... The big differece between lap dance parties and regular strip clubs .... At lap dance parties you can suck on their tits during a public lap dance but at strip clubs you cannot .

I hope it gets better. With the influx of new immigrants they should be able to get new staff like in the old days.

There’s a lap dance party being advertised on Bedpage today. Via Temptations/Taste of Honey. Somewhere downtown tonight. Bodyrub section.
I went this weekend to Taste of Honey, plus once in 2023. $50 cover, I was given 1 drink ticket with cover, hours on instagram are 9pm-4am. I came 910 pm, door was locked:eek:, came back 940pm, they were open. There were no men and just me, 1 dancer, and staff until 1030pm, by 11pm it was 10 women, me and 1 other customer guy. 15 dancers by 1130pm. it peaked at 13 AAs and 3 latinas at 11pm, hottest latina was getting dances with another guy, and I think left early before I was freed up with my first girl (other latina). I saw 3 other customers during the night (I left at 2am), 1 cust did get a VIP room with the hottest one, she then left. Throughout the night, I saw 4-6 half staff or promoters of the girls. Practically no real customers but me and exactly 1 other guy an hour all night. I wanted to see if it ever picks up, or is some kind of after party zone. Its not. Every girl and legit monger is there by 1130pm or 12am.

Some the girls were only about blazing with their handlers, or couldn't say anything more than wanna dance, I tried to talk to them for 1 minute, they said excuse me and spent the rest of the night smoking with their managers or staff n other ho friends. I'd rather goto Showpalace or Sugardaddys instead, same mixed/latina looks, more filtered on looks, and better chances at grabbing next girl if the first you say hi to has a sour pure biz attitude. I was the only person to every buy a lapdance or spend $ AFAIK, plus that 1 VIP room guy. I did click with 1 latina, who knew perfect english (probably USA born), said it was her first night ever being a stripper, I was able to talk and smile, had well taken care of fake blonde hair, but pretty bad Fish BO during the dance, so that prevented me from asking about extras or bothering to get her num. I got a couple offers of private strip club parties in Bronx and Brooklyn from the various promoters, but b/c of lack of talent here, which would represent whatever other things these promoters promote, I skipped swapping numbers with them. My spring 2023 visit was also unimpressive, but I stayed only 20 minutes and left 1030pm. It was 6 AA girls, 2 white, zero latinas, and maybe 5-6 guys. I saw no hope and left quick.

I'll stick to Experience on Thu night, at the same venue. which is always atleast 20 girls, and much better looks/attitude of the girls, for the same exact expenses.

About Harmony, I went back in November on a Friday, it was 9 guys, 4-8 girls, plus some questionable purpose, but very hot girls, that came in groups, wearing upscale pants, I couldn't tell if they are sugars/working, single female guests, or girlfriends of customers. I'd recommend every guy to ask any solo female guests "hey you look great tonight, who did you come with?", I suspect some of them are available/working girls, they just don't want to wear stripper clothes. Some of the not-strippers girls did swap numbers with old guys. 3 of the pleaser girls quit between 930-1030pm, because the guys were not spending and just smoking and hanging with other guys. I was the richest guy in the club I felt. Its mostly AA or latina, 1-2 blondes. Max 10 girls on paper or max 10 thru the night if you stay from opening to 12 am which I did. Venue has a bar/social area in the front, narrow hallway with a bathroom, storage closets, and VIP rooms, and in the very back a smoke room and a 2nd room that has a DJ more seats, with a stage and pole. Venue is decorated well. I never saw any girl use the stage, any guy throw singles (guys seem broke), or buy a dance. 1 bathroom total at harmony, there is always a line. Piss or take a dump before you get to harmony. Bring alot of $1s and $5s, esp $1s. Its BYOB take your bottle back, but the bartender wants $1 per drink as a tip, or I'm too nice because it was free cover. 420 friendly, lotsa 420, hotbox time. Cover was free all night back in november, latest ad says free cover before 11pm, $20 after. harmony is on my revisit list. It has alot of overlap in faces with customers and strippers from Experience party, but no common staff or promoters. The dancers, at harmony the attitudes were much friendlier than Taste of Honey, all Harmony girls I spoke with could do a 5-10 min convo about random crap. Looks wise, were hotter than Taste of Honey but the hottest ones, were snapped up so quick by other guys, I had no chance. Harmony BADLY underbooks girls. I got a more of an apartment party feeling, or everyone is family feeling at Harmony than I did at Taste of Honey, where the girls were married to their plugs and drivers. At harmony, there were some other AMP mongers, had a drink with me and we talked biz and they passed on some amps and agencies intel to me. At Taste of Honey, all guys who started a talk with me, were there to make $, not spend $, not a good vibe.

There is a semi brand new lapdance party opening up Jan 23 Tuesday night 7pm-2am lower Manhattan, I've been to it before, getting into it is very hard without an existing member/hookup, extras are possible, it has some advertising on other sites but not alot, not sure if I can name it publicly, its never been reviewed on AMPR. I'm going to the Tue Jan 23 party, if someone wants its full details DM me. If someone went before, and is brave enough to drop a full review on here, go ahead.

I went to HotSpot last night, moves around, but Wednesdays often at Madame X on Houston. Was there 10 - midnight. Decent crowd, but nothing crazy - my guess was 25 girls, maybe 30? Tough to tell because there is a bar area, back area, and upstairs. Upstairs has 2 sides. Best case 30 girls. A little bit of everything there as far as looks go. $40 to get in, $20 high quality dances. Worth a repeat, but still far from what it was as SVT. But trending better.

I wish there’d be something starting around 6 or 7 , especially on a Friday, for the dudes who can’t be out roaming around at 1am on a weeknight

How was the January 23 party?
Cover was $40, Alco was $10 a for everything. Soda was $3. mostly latina or AA, rare white, I counted 25 girls and 35 or 40 guys. Way unbalanced. sausage fest. half were brand new to me (good) and I goto alot of clubs on the regular. other half i recognized from other strip clubs. some were first time strippers, but said they are usually internet book me girls or gfe massage girls. Come exactly 1 min after opening time and pray, u get chance to walk up first to a hottie, you have to be aggressive, cant wait for them to walk up. 4 of 5 girls I spoke to, had a menu for vip, some had limits but 4 of 5 had a menu, it wasnt just tease, girl gifts were flexible/negotiate but 150-400, depending. no set prices by mgmt. hip hop vibe, there was a pole, but customers were 75% biz suit types. vip rooms (basically only for extras) were $60/20 min, pay girl sep (awesome). there was also a semi private $30/song area that was a pointless upgrade, b/c a bouncer sits on a chair in that room. the free lapdance area ($20/song) vs $30 a song upgrade had zero benefits according to my coworker friend i brought with me. I got a pop in vip from a new girl and her contact info around 1230am. metal detector/patdown, ID check but not scanned or ever recorded. hours were really 7pm-3am but ad said 1 am. maybe 1am was last entry. Not going to publically name the Jan 23 event.

Separatly DM me if you know of a weekends "private party" on 39 street between 5 and 6 Ave. Same block as sapphire but isn't at sapphire. I don't have access or any ads or contact info to that one, but perhaps someone else here knows what I'm talking about, but if there is no ad, no public way to sign up, and no way to be verified/invited, it can't be reviewed.

One girl on Jan 23 party said her usual strip club is https://www.instagram.com/theloftpartynyc some addresses promoted are reg strip clubs, but some ads promote a secret address, someone TOFTT.

http://instagr.am/p/C1insPTN5Ui/ I'll pass on Loft NYC unless someone writes a review, but what's private strip club #2?

I will write an update on Harmony, this is 2nd hand info, not my info, vibe deteriorate since November, song over counting, VIP room prices do not include the girl but are NOT the same price/time for all guests, owner makes up VIP room fees on the spot based on how u dress/look or IDK. My guess maybe the girls DO get a $10/20/30 secretly under the table, then charge for the actual extra. I'll still be back to Harmony to re-eval the neg reviews floating around in December, but it's seems at Harmony you need to be damn careful abt ur wallet, and budget. Basically my November review was "we brand new, everything is free", but December and Jan 2024 comments on other sites say there were mega price increases/fees/etc at Harmony. need to revisit it.

House of Scorpio (needs a membership) has a lapdance party on Feb 16th. https://houseofscorpio.com/membership.html Anyone a member or been to one?
I went years ago, at their old address, it was 100% burlesque, some dollar tossing but not hip hop. 50% female guests. I never saw a lapdance except pulling a guy outta the crowd and putting him on a stage in a chair. Some of the strippers had alot onlyfans/AVN looking hobby fans (customers?) looking for autographs after. Social media says all strippers are regulars at Pumps or Lucky 13 but my info is very old. I actually am member RN, thanks for reminding me to go. Scorpio was a great selective entry swingers club to bring a woman on certain days before covid, but after covid, all play parties were ended for PC reasons. Scorpio is very LGBTQ, dress "bi" or EDM or burning man alternative if u go any event any theme there. The "Met Gala"/high society mixer, after the show and after the strippers left, was more useful to me. They not hobby, just lifestyle.

Reading the Feb 16 invite, vip rooms r brand new part, its capped at 8 models, idk if it's a copy paste error, but "membership req, dress code req, partner req". 2 men are a couple under the rules. Years ago, I did lapdance at Scorpio solo, nobody followed dress code. Guess I'm not going if I need a woman on my arm, or I gotta find a bro to go. I pass #1, #2, but not #3. Partner rule, ur sidekick, any gender responsible to get u home if ur drunk, low bouncer event, I agree with it, but partner rule is excessive if it's a strip club, I'd need ano hobby bro, to go with me to get a review. meh.

I went to Ricks and Le Rouge in the same night last month. As someone said above, Ricks was a great atmosphere for a NYC strip club. Good variety of dancers and they’re not pushy about spending a fortune for a private room. I headed over to Le rouge around 11:30 somewhere in flat iron and the place was visually cool I guess but bad atmosphere. A lot of “dancers”, predominantly high college girls and junkie Eastern European types. I got lapdances with five different dancers, not roaming or flirting with any of them, mostly disinterested kind of attitude. Ended up getting scammed by a junkie that I refused a lapdance with and got ambushed by staff until I paid her for 10 dances. Seemed like a routine they’ve done before. Needless to say, I won’t be going back to any of the Le Rouge branded events.

There were a bunch of places in NYC that I remember
Church street just a bit south of Canal. I used to go there on lunch hour $10 at the door and the girls were very accommodating lots of touching in all the right places.
15th or 16th street just west of Union square park

These are all Harmony/ Melody Burlesque locations . The Union Square one was on 17th Street- I just passed this old spot last week- block is very different now, full of popular restaurants with big crowds.

The Harmony was the best place ever. Don’t know if we’ll ever see another place like this again
