Toronto Strip Clubs

Toronto strip clubs date back to the 1960s when the liberalisation of city regulations brought go-go girls and topless dancers to Yonge Street.

While the best strip bars are now scattered city-wide, you can still find some gentlemen’s clubs on Yonge.

In our guide below, we look at the best lap dance clubs around Toronto, including some of the most famous gentlemen’s clubs in Canada; where exotic dancers and beautiful strippers strut their stuff on a nightly basis.

A Guide to Toronto’s Best Strip Bars & Nude Bars

Brass Rail strip club Yonge Street

Our guide includes the Brass Rail, a legendary strip club of over 50 years on Yonge Street. Photo from their website.

The Brass Rail

701 Yonge St, Toronto, ON M4Y 2B6

Phone: 416 924-1241

The Brass Rail isn’t just a strip club. It’s a Toronto institution. Located on Yonge Street — the beating heart of Toronto’s strip club heritage — this establishment has been satisfying the punters for over 50 years.

Brass Rail Tavern hires some of the sexiest show girls in Canada, with over 300 on its roster. They perform regular live all-nude shows in a wild club-like atmosphere.

For a slightly more intimate vibe, the club has a private VIP lounge area called the Upper Brass. It has a $20 cover charge but once inside, you’ll appreciate the aura of elegance, class and sophistication from upstairs. Nice choice for stag parties.

Opening Hours at Brass Rail Tavern:

  • Monday to Saturday: 12pm to 2am
  • Sunday: 5pm to 2am

Another strip bar on Yonge Street is Zanzibar Tavern. And it is unmissable.

Seriously… unmissable.

This venue used to be famous for the many bands that passed through its stage. These days, it houses an eclectic mix of Toronto strippers and go-go girls.

Billed as ‘Toronto’s World Famous Strip Bar’, where the show never stops, and fully nude dancers bump and grind the night away, Zanzibar is just as likely to attract tourists as it is the local clientele.

There are private VIP rooms and lap dances are available from a crazily diverse mix of show girls. No minimum or cover charge.

Opening Hours at Club Zanzibar:

  • Open every day: 11:15am to 2am

For Your Eyes Only

House of Lancaster

House of Lancaster Etobicoke: 689 The Queensway, Toronto, ON M8Y 1L1
House of Lancaster Toronto: 1215 Bloor St W, Toronto, ON M6H 1N4

Phone: (416) 534-2385

The House of Lancaster is known for its two gentlemen’s clubs in Toronto and Etobicoke. Their ladies are a mix of local girls and Eastern Europeans. All of whom can be found dancing fully nude in what is described as the ‘ultimate nude sports bar’ experience.

If you’re coming here for a mix of sports and eye candy, the big screens and surround sound will certainly make it an all-in-one experience.

Both the House of Lancaster clubs hold regular events and themed nights where their show girls will dress up in any number of erotic outfits, for your viewing pleasure. There are package deals for groups from as little as four people, up to parties of 30.

While the clubs are similar in style, the downtown House of Lancaster attracts a younger ‘grittier’ crowd, whereas the Etobicoke venue is known for luring in a more laid back suburban clientele.

Opening Hours at House of Lancaster Gentlemen Clubs:

  • Monday to Saturday: 12pm to 2am
  • Sunday: 6pm to 2am

Backstage Theatre / Fairbanks Hotel

2418 Dufferin St, York, ON M6E 3S8

Phone: 416 781-9317
No website available.

Backstage Theatre (formerly known as Fairbanks Hotel) looks like a battleship tin from the outside, but step in to this intimate den and you’ll find a variety of dancers wearing little or no clothes as they entertain the York regulars.

It’s not likely to win any awards for the decor, but if you’re looking for an authentic hole-in-the-wall strip joint experience, this place ticks the boxes.

Opening Hours at Backstage Theatre / Fairbanks Hotel:

  • Open every day: 12pm to 2am

Club Paradise

1313 Bloor St W, Toronto, ON M6H 1P3

Phone: 416 535-0723

Another low-key and fairly discreet lap dance bar situated in Bloordale. They have around 20 ladies and a full dining menu; which is more than you’d expect when viewing the premises from outside.

Club Paradise has a reputation for friendly service and beautiful dancers without the pretension of some of Toronto’s larger strip clubs.

It’s popular with the locals and doesn’t suffer as many stag party invasions as Eyes and Brass Rail, nor as many inquisitive tourists as the bright-lit Zanzibar Tavern.

Opening Hours at Club Paradise:

  • Open every day: 5pm to 2am

Remington’s Men of Steel

379 Yonge St, Toronto, ON M5B 1S1, Canada

Phone: 416-977-2160

Toronto’s premier strip joint with male dancers draws a combination of gay men, and bachelorette parties of rowdy women enjoying their very own Magic Mike nights out.

As you’d expect, the men here are ripped, buff and only too ready to strut their stuff. There are regular live shows as well as private rooms for those seeking an intimate lap dance. This is the only licensed male strip club in Toronto.

Opening Hours at Remington’s:

  • Open every day: 5pm to 2am


212 Dundas St E, Toronto, ON M5A 1Z6

Phone: 416 921-2191

Filmores claims to be Canada’s ‘ultimate gentlemen’s club’ with some of the world’s sexiest showgirls and hottest stage shows. It might not be as prestigious as that, but it’s still a good night out.

Filmores is certainly an iconic venue. It sits on the corner of Dundas East rising up like a regal, classical strip club from an era gone by.

Inside you can expect to find a variety of local dancers, many of whom will be glammed up for one of the venue’s many themed nights. Nurses, police officers, wild west girls and horny devils… the ‘bad girls’ have a pretty expansive wardrobe back there.

Check out the private VIP Players Lounge for a more intimate experience.

Opening Hours at Filmores:

  • Monday to Saturday: 4pm to 2am
  • Sunday: 5pm to 1am
