Striptease clubs in Ottawa are a surprisingly good and fun way of spending a night out. I said “surprisingly” because I’m used to the European standards of titty bars, rape drugs, and credit card scams. I suppose coming across an exceptional striptease club is rare no matter the continent, but Ottawa does not disappoint. Playmate (http://theplaymate.ca/) at 175 Montreal Rd and The Nuden (https://www.nuden.net/) at 1560 Triole St are both classy spots, respected by the locals. Good food, cold beer, pretty ladies and a great time. Shoot some pool, have a few drinks, enjoy a lap-dance. It’s all good fun; just don’t go in thinking it’s a brothel.
If you’re looking for something different, more exclusive, then Brass Club (http://www.brassclub.ca/) could be more up your alley. I like the secretive vibe about it, no one really knows where it is; you need an invitation and all that. One can only wonder what happens behind the closed doors.
