A legendary Toronto strip club, The Brass Rail has been delighting all who visit since 1958.
Viewed by its many regulars as a more ‘upmarket’ establishment than many of its neighbouring downtown city competitors, many celebrities have been known to haunt the neon-lit bars and comfy private booths of the Brass Rail strip club.
The following is a guide to what you can expect to find when you step through those famous Yonge Street doors. It includes prices, getting there, premier service and other essential information. You can also read more on their Facebook page.
What’s the Brass Rail like inside?
This Toronto strip club is pretty big, considering there are seats for up to 500 visitors at the Brass Rail as well as plush, comfortable booths upstairs in the Upper Brass area where you can enjoy some fully nude private dancing if so desired.
The lighting in the booths – which are reasonably roomy – is excellent and it’s even possible to see a little of what’s going on in the other booths.
(Although do keep it in mind that they may be able to see yours too!)
Stag parties of up to 50 guests are welcome in the VIP private champagne lounges, or they can also enjoy some entertainment at the bar on the Mezzanine level.
Up to 100 ladies are employed here as dancers (the club boasts both quantity and quality), with their appearance alternating nightly.
There’s a fair number of strippers of all nationalities and persuasions, from blondes to brunettes and red heads, dancing in a sensual and delightfully acrobatic manner most evenings. Prior to strutting to their personal pole, each lady makes a stunning and mesmerising entrance onto the stage via a grand staircase mid-century Hollywood-style.
The impressive DJ-run music system, colourful lightening and the extensive ceiling height of the building’s modern and smart interior create a dramatic and charged theatrical atmosphere (especially near the main stage area).
Touching isn’t necessarily off-limits when you order a private dance, depending on the lady and you won’t be hassled to hand over more money than you were planning to.
The club is female-friendly with many of the dancers happy to provide lap dancing for their own sex — or for couples.
If you fancy celeb spotting at the same time then best way to bump into the likes of Samuel L Jackson and Charlize Theron is to go during the city’s International Film Festival from 8 to 18 September.
The club is open every day.
Predictably, it’s busiest on Fridays and the weekends.
Opening hours at the Brass Rail:
- Monday to Saturday: 12pm to 2am
- Sunday: 5pm to 2am
Opening hours at the Upper Brass:
- Every night: 8pm to 2am
