Quality of dances (6/20) – According to the signs, you're supposed to prepay for all dances, but thankfully none of the girls tried to enforce this. As a general rule, if a girl ever tries to get you to prepay, she's not worth getting a dance from.
The 1-way contact rules are followed for the most part, but the dances aren't bad considering that limitation. The one dancer who didn't follow the contact rules practically sexually assaulted me, but I can't add points for that because it wasn't even enjoyable. Even if she really is a "freak," as she repeatedly told me, I still didn't want to grab her tits so hard that they felt like they were going to pop, but she kept putting her hands on mine and squeezing tighter, so I didn't have much choice.
Quality of dancers (5/10) – The talent here was better than I expected, but still wasn't anything great. There wasn't anyone who you'd have to look away from, but there weren't any 9's or 10's either.
Number of Dancers (5/10) – For such a small club, there were more dancers than I expected, with 3 on stage most of the time. They might be better off only having 1 or 2 on stage though, because there could have been more girls mingling with the customers.
Variety/Diversity of dancers (2.5/5) – Given the location, it's not surprising that most of the girls here are white, but there are a few black dancers and even one Asian, which is practically unheard of in New England.
Attitude of dancers (3.5/10) – Most of the girls are friendly, but they lose big points here because a girl yelled at me for having my phone in my front pocket. Besides the fact that not may people keep their phones anywhere else, if you're putting pressure on my leg, you aren't focusing on the right spot.
Value (3.5/10) – Drinks are $4.75, and even though there's no cover charge in the afternoons or on Tuesdays, the value is hurt by subpar dances for $20. The stage action is also average at best.
Dance Setup (4/10) – Customers at the bar and the stage can't see you in the dance room, but the plants that separate the chairs don't stop the guy beside you from watching. The booth in the back is fairly private, so you should ask for this one if it's available.
Club Setup (3/10) – There are some tables along the wall, but no more than 2 people fit at any of them, so they wouldn't work for groups. The bar is too small for a place like this, so most people don't have any choice but to sit at the average-sized stage.
Club Atmosphere (4/10) – There's a comfortable vibe here, but Castaways tries to walk the line between dive bar and club, and it doesn't really pull off either.
Club Accessibility (0.5/5) – Club Castaways isn't close to anything and it keeps very strange hours, so it can be frustrating if you drive to get here only to find out that it's closed. I'd call to make sure that they're open, but generally they are closed on Sundays and Mondays and they close at 10 on some other days.
Overall – If you live around Whately, there aren't really any other options nearby, but I'd still probably just save my money for trips to better clubs.
TOTAL SCORE = 37.5
