Let me get this straight there are no nude strip clubs in Orlando? no high class ones etc? like big city stuff

Please note that this information is based on my experience as a young twenty something almost 20 years ago (Miami experience), and the experience of a friend who visited Orlando almost a year ago. Not that I want to portray myself as someone who is a prude or 'above' going to a strip club. I just haven't made enough money over the past 20+ years to see the cost/"benefit" of going to be of value.


That being said, there is a 'chain' called Rachel's and they are VERY classy. The only 'problem' is they wear pasties and g-strings. There might be other clubs that I am not aware of, but I would be surprised if it was different. I remember that Rachel's about 4 years ago (when the laws were being protested) held nude plays (like Shakespeare and the like) to get around the nudity laws, but I have no clue if they have done anything like that since. Miami certainly had a great strip club scene 20 years ago. While I know some of the more interesting places have come and long since gone, there are still clubs there doing good business. The surviving clubs were not very seedy back in the day. I imagine they haven't declined since.

Miami (certainly for adults) is a WONDERFUL place to VACATION. I wouldn't wish living there on Osama bin Laden, but it's a great place to party and have a great time.

Seedy? Haha... no.

There are many things you could call Orlando but 'seedy' wouldn't be one of them. But judging by the insightful one word post the OP made, I think this post was just trying to stir something up.

Yes, above sunset is nice but have you ever noticed the sidewalks? They haven't lined up in about 50 years!

Lol, what is seedy slang for?....I'm guessing a slummy part of town. If so that's a bad choice of slang. lol
