For Women Who Want The Ballerific Life!
Im thinking about a waitress job at a strip club. There is only like 2 good white clubs in my area though, but I dont think I can do the black strip club. Its a private club so they smoke and Im not sure if I can deal with that..but I may try it out and see - If I can pull 300 a night - I'll wear a wig on top of my weave so it's not all smoked out.
I didnt know they had that...going to pick that up and stop by the club tomorrow
What do you have to lose by trying it out aside from money for a permit unless your city does not require one? I think you should try it out and see how it is. It's no harm in that. The smoke is the only thing I hate in there. I hope OSHA decides to visit us one day to be honest maybe then we will have better ventilation. I always have to keep my Isoplus Hair Freshner in my arsenal.
I worked as a cocktail server/bartender at a highend gentlemens club while I was in college. Its was fun, the strippers and staff were cool. The money was great and I met a alot of ballers. I never once considered dancing while working there nor did I show my tits on stage like the other cocktail servers did.However the adult industry is not for weak minded girls, there are alot of men who are seasoned at taking advantage of the fresh meat or naive women.
These clubs already dont want to hire too many black females soo my advice for blacks females trying work in a high end strip club is: This advice applys to all females
No arm, neck, thigh, face tattoos or piercings
No colorful or matted weaves, only black, brown or beyonce blond color. No natural hairstyles like twists or braids (sad but true)
You should look young college aged, fresh faced, tight body, slim
Big Boobs will get you $$$
A Big Ass will get you $$$ when the athletes and young blk ballers come in
When you go in to apply wear slim jeans or tights, fitted t-shirt something causal that shows off your figure. Not club dresses or booty shorts or strippers outfits. Dont bring your fugly friend with you too apply because that can have you turned away at the door. No crazy makeup just eyeliner,lipgloss, mascara will do. Be nice to everyone because if you act shitty to the doorman or cashier they will tell you the manager is busy. The best time to apply is when the club just opens, never apply on the weekends. If you are told the manager is busy or in a meeting or to come back, then chalk it up and move on to the next club. They never turn away a hot chick they want to hire.
Tell my girl S____ (waitress) I said hey! lol. I want to work at one and am happy I came across this discussion. I am thinking about doing it as well on the side. I have a nice career, but while beginning, and all during college I worked at Hooters, Kilts, etc....so I tknow I'd do well. Plus like it was said, it really helps build your personality, make connects, and your confidence. Since I now live in Atlanta, I want to see what DOA is about... I'm not into all of the hood stuff, but my tl is always going crazy about on twitter. I only told my mom and 1 of my aunts about it because I didnt want ppl judging me (which were usually the broke ppl whom shoulda been serving tables/ drinks alongside me). Also, a lot of our girls did eventually get on the poles after leaving the company, but I was fine where I was, I think it depends on your personal morals/ values
OMG thanks for this a lot!!! I was really contemplating where to go... A lot of my friends from college work at DOA, Kamals, Onyx, and the rest of the AA places. Now I am not knocking them, cause all $$ is green, but I have hung with them before at work, and there seems to be a lot of mess going in there that I'd rather not deal with. With DOA, they just seemed like they are poppin, but I kinda think the hype will die down, plus a lil bit ago on twitter, a person I was following used Central Station & DOA in the same sentence... Ummmm red flag cantdoit.com/never! lol.
Also, being the big boob, no ass club chick that I am, I'd prob fit in better at the places you named :) I will def go and see how I can make things happen. I am have a lot of free time in the summer, with my profession lol. So I will prob go aroung April to ease my schedule into things. I will prob be inboxing you as I get ready to go just for some tips. I am from up north and I know that this is a whole diff league down here (which I am rdy to conquer!)
Go for it!! Especially here in Atlanta. My suggestion is that you apply at places like Follies, Oasis or Cheetah. DOA seems like its going to be very fly by night. I don't think its worth paying $350 for a permission to work there. But I may be wrong because I've never worked in a black club. I swear that building is cursed,lol. The permit system is better for clubs in Dekalb county. The people you meet will be priceless. My concierge business if off to a great start because my first twelve clients are regular customers of mine. Since you have restaurant experience you should check out Hal's in Buckhead. Old and new money frequent that place daily. The Club at Chops is also a great place. It's a hidden cigar bar and food lounge in the basement of Chops Lobster Bar. It's members only at $750 and up per membership the "who's who" of Atlanta frequent there everyday. Hope this helps, feel free to ask about anything else.
A waitress is a waitress...
