Food at PDX Gentlemen's Clubs

  • 2

As I understand it, there are 49 "gentlemen's clubs" within city limits, and that they are all required to feature a food menu as long as alcohol is also on offer. I have heard of only two which make more than a legally-compliant fuss about their food:

1. Casa Diablo, which offers a vegan-only menu

2. The Acropolis, which has a reputation for its steak.

Are there any other clubs where the food is anything more than code-compliant? Typically I see Select-or-lower grade steak, burgers, chicken sandwiches, tenders, fries, and the rest of the Sysco fryolator stuff.

  1. No, strip bar food is uniformly horrible. At least Mary's allows you to bring in food from the neighboring Mexican place.

    1. You've identified the 2 best places. Acropolis has more than reputation for steak. It has a reputation for quality sourcing. As the frugal travelor for the NY Times wrote:

      My little sister liked it, however, not for the performers (who earned it its nickname, the A Crop) but for the ludicrously cheap steaks. My eight-ounce sirloin cost $5.50 and came deliciously medium-rare. This being Portland, the meat was locally sourced, too, from cattle on the owner’s ranch.
