Strip Clubs in Denmark
Denmark is well known for its Strip Clubs and the red light district "Istedgade" in Copenhagen is a popular place to visit. In earlier years this is where you used to find all the Clubs in the city, but the last years several high end Gentleman Clubs has established themselves in this great night life city.
The Strip clubs in Denmark are based on the Champagne and private show system, but its also common in several clubs that the customers can pay the club to take the girls with them. Aarhus and Aalborg is the two other citys in Denmark where you will find Strip Clubs. In Denmark you will find strippers with all nationalities from within the European Union, there are less and less Danish girls that work in the clubs, compared to earlier years. Denmark is know as a safe and good country to work in with a strong economy, so its a popular destination for dancers to work in.
Copenhagen has the main concentration of strip clubs in Denmark. There are only a couple of cities outside of this with striptease, notably Aarhus and Aalborg. Patrons are expected to buy dancers bottles or ladies drinks in order to gain the time of the dancer as the clubs operate on the 'Champagne System'. They also offer private shows. Prices start at around 1000DKK and stage shows are also common, though tipping is not standard.
Stage shows normally take the form of a basic pole show and not a feature show in strip clubs in Denmark. This means dancers will normally dance in what they are wearing already without specific costumes and props. Dancers in strip clubs in Denmark will commonly go full nude in stage shows. These are not of significant length, maybe one or two songs.
Dancers will put less pressure to go into the private rooms immediately with Champagne being offered. Customers in strip clubs in Denmark have a chance to get to know the dancer a little more, whilst still paying for her time. It is of a slower pace with larger hits of money when it arrives. Most of the profit for the girl does, however, come from the privates so there is an expectation to take a show at some point. Some of the well known Strip clubs in Copenhagen are: Angels Club
, Madame Amour
, 7th Heaven
, La Dolce Vita
and Maxim Bar
Legalities of strip clubs in Denmark
Attitudes to stripping in Denmark vary hugely from the majority of Scandinavia. It is less conservative than Norway and Sweden in terms of the sex industry and prostitution is legal. A dancer must take care to ensure a contract is booked with a club that is purely striptease. Customers can book out girls in a lot of Copenhagen clubs. What happens once off the premises is at the discretion of the girl. It is unlikely that any extras happen onsite due to the specific legislation in place, which does not allow for a third party to profit from the transaction. There are, however, clean clubs available with purely dancers where girls work only in the venue. No allowances outside of dancing are available in the private rooms.
Clubs will offer compensation for stage shows and a fixed salary is not unusual. Dancer numbers are kept fairly low as payment is offered.
