Planted in the seediest section of downtown Young Street, but reassuringly close to la-di-da Yorkville, there’s a wide spread of client types. With a (top-) shelf life that’s endured, it’s popular with young jocks and athletes, businessmen and baldies. Downstairs is bathed in sultry purple glow, with a small stage for athletic pole dancers to writhe round. It may be of interest that girls in Toronto dance completely nude, and men can touch anywhere apart from their ‘cookie’ (their word, not ours).
There’s a row of discreet booths for private dances, and at least 120 girls a night to choose from. Upstairs is Upper Brass, billed as upper-class with a higher calibre of girls and $20-cover charge easily afforded by the visiting VIPs. To get more bang for your buck, $400 buys you an hour’s dance in the Champagne room.
