Want to know which strip clubs are the best in Winnipeg?
Canada has a reputation for its quirky strip club laws with some states having peculiar bylaws restricting how many venues can operate, where they can open and even the level of contact allowed. In Manitoba, the law requires dancers to ensure that their buttocks be covered when they are not performing. Despite the eccentricities of some of these rules, Winnipeg has a good selection of venues where you can get a lap dance or enjoy some erotic dancing.
In this feature, we take a look at the best strip clubs in Winnipeg to give you the full details of what to expect, opening hours and prices. If you’ve not visited a strip club outside of the USA before then you might find our guide to how Canadian strip clubs operate useful.
Though there used to be quite a few more strip clubs in Winnipeg, there are currently only three main venues offering a striptease experience. All have pretty good reputations for offering a good night out.
1105 Arlington St, Winnipeg, MB R3E 3L1
Combining a strip and night club with a sports bar, Lipstixx is a popular go-to in Winnipeg for a night out for exotic entertainment.
It’s a casual club with a friendly feel to it and has a good reputation for its entertainers and bar staff. However, the place is generally busier on a weekend and late nights/early mornings. Head to Lipstixx at 5pm on a Tuesday and you might not experience the best the club has to offer.
At busy times, there are usually half a dozen girls working the floor as well as regular choreographed performances on stage. $30 will buy you a private lap dance but remember to take plenty of cash for drinks as well as for entertainment and tips.
The venue covers more than 10,000 square feet and incorporates:
- 20 HD Televisions
- VLT Lounge with video poker machines and slots
- Pool Tables
- Private VIP rooms for lap dances
- Sports Bar
- Beer Store
- In-house DJs with Special Guests
Lipstixx is open as follows:
- Sports Bar: 10.00am to 2.15am (Monday to Sunday)
- Beer Store: 10.00am to 2.30am (365 days a year)
Solid Gold Club
216 Notre Dame Ave, Winnipeg, MB R3B 1N6
Situated a short walk from Portage and Main, the Solid Gold Club is a popular bachelor/bachelorette party venue and usually has quite a few of these groups in over the weekends. It is a lively club that has a reasonable reputation although there are some negative reviews online from dissatisfied customers. As with many strip clubs, it is worth taking some of these with a pinch of salt as they can often be from disgruntled guests who were shown the door as a result of their own behavior. By and large, customer comments are good, the prices are typical and the dancers of a high standard.
The main dance area is a keyhole stage with dance poles and seating around the outside. There is a large, well-stocked bar with further seating plus private dance areas. Decorated in dark blues and touches of opulent gold, the club has a glitzy feel to it but is far from being a ‘prestige’ venue.
Cover charges are around $10 with a lap dance costing from $20 with average drinks being $6.
The club is open from Monday to Saturday from 7.00pm to 2.00am.
Teasers Burlesque Palace
611 Archibald St, Winnipeg, MB R2J 0X8
One of the more highly regarded strip clubs in Winnipeg, Teasers is owned and operated by strippers. What this means is that the dancers welfare is paramount and this shows in both the quality of the performances as well as the recruitment.
It’s a club that has a good atmosphere, great service and friendly staff (including the bartenders and security). However, there are aspects of the club which do need some attention such as the restrooms and parts of the décor. Teasers has been open around eight years and, in places, this is beginning to show.
Covering 7500 square feet of space, the club has a large, fully-stocked bar which serves a range of liquors, beers and soft drinks. Happy hour runs from midday to 7.00pm daily (not Sundays) with specials offered during this time.
Of course, it is the performances that lure punters back to the club time after time and the dancers specialize in burlesque routines as opposed to a simple ‘striptease’. It is this that sets the club aside from the others and Teasers certainly has one of the better reputations in the city.
Ladies get a free cover to the club and a private VIP dance will cost you as little as $30
Opening hours are as follows:
- Monday to Saturday: Midday to 2.00am
- Sunday: 7.00pm to 2.00am
