Monreal's "Encore" Gentleman's Club (Milwaukee, WI)

Quality of dances (0/20) - Before you even get into the club, you know that you will not be getting a good dance. Posted prominently on the front door is the following sign "Do not touch the dancers. Touching the Dancers is a Class E felony punishable by 9 months imprisonment or $10,000 penalty." I took my chances with the law and got a dance anyways. As one dancer appropriately said "the dances are only $10 for obvious reasons." The most contact I got from the dance was the dancer's hand bracing against my knee as the rest of her body was arm's length away, with the occasional fake tit coming within 7 inches of my face.

Quality of dancers (3/10) - That being said, these could be the most attractive women in all of Wisconsin, minus the fake bombs. Only one girl in the whole place had real tits, and the fake jobs were so bad they look like a small child sculpted them with homemade play dough. This is clearly where Steve Carrell got the line "it was like a bag of sand" in the 40 Year Old Virgin. I can proudly say that I saw the oldest woman I've ever seen dancing in a club here; however, she danced in some sort of ball gown the whole time, only showing her mummified breasts in the last 20 seconds of the song.

Number of dancers (6/10) - There were girls pouring out of every mouse hole in the building. There were at least 15 senior citizens in the bar, and there was pretty close to a 1-1 ratio of girls to old dirty men.

Variety/Diversity of dancers (2.5/5) - Milwaukee's mixture of Latina women, old German beer maids and college students were all adequately represented. If you're into white women under the age of 46 or anything other than Hispanic women, you may be out of luck here.

Attitude of Dancers (4/10) - I was only able to get two dancers to talk to me as they walked around for their "tip walk." The one was fairly friendly, and the other one talked hockey with me for at least 5 minutes, and selected a song just to taunt me for my hockey affiliations, so she seemed to enjoy her job. However, the other girl basically said that the club sucked, so it's mostly hit or miss.

Value (1/10) - $4.25 is the most I've ever paid for a PBR in my life. It won the Blue Ribbon, but not in the last 100 years. No cover, but I hear there's one at night. $10 for a dance might seem great, but you're better off driving down I-94 and buying a DVD at the trucker store for your $10. Also, no matter where you are sitting at the bar, the girls do a "tip walk" after they get off stage and expect you to give them a dollar regardless of your proximity to the stage or whether you could even see them dancing.

Dance Setup (0/10) - The room is basically just a half wall in the middle of the room with drapes over the front. There are individual chairs all next to each other with no dividers between chairs. There is some privacy, however, since no one ever gets dances here so you won't be bumping into other guys in the room. Also, the dance room shares a wall with the kitchen, so at lunch time the whole room just smells like fried fish.

Club Setup (2.5/10) - When you walk inside, it's basically just a bar; when you walk in further, there is a stage within view of half the bar, and there are seats at the stage and further away from the stage. If you aren't sitting at the stage or one of the three bar stools that face the stage, you're not going to have a great view.

Club Atmosphere (1/10) - If you are an old man, part of a welder's union, or just drink because you hate your life, you will love this place. It's in the middle of a grave yard, and has a sign telling you that you will go to jail if you touch the dancers. Also, I'm 90% sure one of the guys was wearing a prison jumpsuit. The only way you will enjoy the atmosphere is if you treat it like a bar with overpriced beers and girls walking around with their fake bombs hanging out. One small benefit is the cigar ash tray at every table, although I doubt anyone has ever smoked anything but Marlboros or Kools at this place.

Club Accessibility (4/5) - I imagine this is the only reason people come here. It is right off of I-94 by Miller Park, and only about 1 block off of the freeway. They even have a free shuttle to and from Miller Park from the club. However, two sides of building are basically surrounded by a graveyard, so you almost have to come from the freeway to get here. Unsure of public transportation access.

Overall - If you want to get a fish fry, have a beer, and look at fake tits with senior citizens, this is your spot. Otherwise, I would not recommend this club.

TOTAL SCORE = 24

  4. I just stumbled upon this and I am completely disgusted. What makes men think that dancers want to be fondled by a man or have full contact with their smelly ass for $10 bucks or even $20? At Silk the girls only get $13 out of the $20. My first club was Encore and I worked at Silk for 2 years. I drank my life away to just have the guts to give some pervert a good time while working at silk. When I went back to Encore I was relieved to never have to do a dirty dance again. I agree it's a hole in the wall but it's a place that is filled with women who are not slutty and the majority have other jobs or they're getting an education. It's the place to go for a women who refuses to to degrade them self for a buck. It's a shame that a place like that has to be judged for not being "slutty" enough.

  5. Anonymous,

    Thank you for visiting our blog. Peter Tips appreciates input from all our readers. Your perspective is not uncommon but by no means represents the views of our readership as a whole. Peter Tips strives to be as objective as we can in order to be as broadly informative as possible. Also, remember that a club's ultimate score takes into account many different criteria. A lower rating does not necessarily follow from a weak showing in any particular category.

  8. I worked at the Encore for many years and I would not have wanted to work any where else in the business! I made good money without doing all the nasty things that the rest of the clubs require you do to make money, some girls perfer a no contact club. I worked with many beautiful, smart women there whom had other goals that they were working on while at the Encore. As far as the customer base, old men, young men, business, drug dealer, athlete whatever you deal is, they are all the same, we didn't give a f*ck as long as you tipped. At the end of the day nothing mattered but the amount of tips I had and remembering that I didn't have to dry f*ck you to get it. I loved the Encore, and now I am a young successful business woman, thanks to the Encore and the money I made to finish school. I can not vouch for all the girls exspecially now my run was almost 5 years ago and before but when I was there the Encore rocked, it was little and not that fancy but the girls were always classy and the regulars are what made that place the Encore! I shall never forget the good ole days there and the very beautiful women I once shared the stage with! Encore is the Cheers of Gentlemen clubs!! Tabby!!

  9. Hey Jada !! Lmao... I will say to that whoever made this page probably is not an ideal customer. If you want girls to talk to you, don't be creepy. I'm guessing Peter what's your name…most likely is. Everyone feeds off eathothers energies. You sit down with the intention to be a total dick, we are going to pick up on that…and leave you alone. I mean, really, if your good company, then you will get attention. Learn how to act, silly boy. -DAMN SKIPPY BayeeBay

  10. This is a fun place to hang out. It's kind of pg-13...but there are some cute girls here. Some actually really know how to dance and I can appreciate that. It is really pretty cheap to have some drinks and hang out with 1/2 naked girls. If you buy some drinks for the girls and just have fun...it's a cool place to hang out. If you are looking for the perv experience, it is not the place.

  11. It's been a long time since I've worked here but it always been a great place for the girls and the customers. Your right you can't touch the girls and that's a wonderful thing, the girls there don't have to sell their soul to make a buck and can still look themselves in the mirror the next day. It's sad that a club gets shit on for not being a stereo type strip club. For me and plenty of other girls this is the best bar they have ever worked, the girls were a family and the customers were respectful and our friends. We all looked out for each other and it was and still is a good time. The Encore is a corner bar that happens to have dancers, they have always accepted everyone and made girls and customers alike comfortable and always welcomed. I often miss my girls, customers and friends I've made there. You sir are wrong about the Encore it is one of if not the best Gentleman's club in all of Wis. Emphasis on Gentleman, we expect you to behave like one and enjoy the show for that's what it about right Entertainment! "Little" Michelle 1994-2001

  12. I always thought it was a cool place to hang out. I even knew a girl that danced here that I went to high school with. I never went there to be a pervert. I just went to have some brews and admire the beautiful girls. I give it two-thumbs up.

  15. How can you say Encore doesn't have whores remember Annie?

  16. Holy shit, I know it's been a while since I've worked there, but the reviewer needs to spend more than an hour there to justify a shitty review. Honestly, I wish there were an Encore type club down here in FL, because I truthfully miss my Encore family. LOVE YOU GUYS~

    P.S. While I bounced there, I definitely brought up unacceptible behavior to the management as soon as I saw it. So, if you're into girls grinding on you, leaving nasty snail marks all over your pants, then SILK is the place for you. If you want a nice, quiet bar to chill at, Encore's your place. I'm pretty sure my friends down here are tired of me bragging about how awesome Encore was.

    P.P.S. As soon as I can afford another trip up there, I'm probably spending most of my time there. You've been warned! (I might even try to work in England coming to visit for you, Teri!)

  18. I visit there from time to time. Being a female who enjoys to watch beauty at its best going there is always a good time. Every place has its share of ugly, to old dancers but that makes you appreciate the pretty ones more. nice relaxed setting. If youe ever there get a dance from georgia.
