Scruples (Bridgeport. CT)

Quality of dances (8/20) – You'll get some decent grind action here, but two way contact is not encouraged and, with a bouncer closely monitoring the action, it isn't the type of place where you'll want to push your luck.  Considering the things that go on in some of the other Bridgeport clubs, Scruples needs to step their game up, because "decent" just isn't good enough to compete.    

Quality of dancers (7.5/10) –  There's a lot of variation from night to night, but I've seen plenty of 8s in here, and it's very rare to see anyone below a 5 or a 6.  The top end girls aren't all that much better than in most other Connecticut clubs, but the quality control seems to be significantly above average.      

Number of Dancers (6.5/10) – This place can be packed with both dancers and customers on weekend nights.  Though the ratio of dancers to customers isn't always great, there are usually enough girls to choose from so that you shouldn't have to wait too long to get someone's attention for a dance.  That's particularly true if, as is often the case, one of the other clubs in the area is shut down due to legal troubles.          

Variety/Diversity of Dancers (2.5/5) – There's a nice mix of fit white and Latina dancers, but I've been surprised by the relative lack of black dancers and big asses.      

Attitude of Dancers (3/10) – These girls are hot, but a lot of them think that they're hotter than they are.  It's not that they're nasty, but they just aren't all that inviting either.   

Value (3.5/10) – The $8 cover on weekend nights seems a little on the high side, the mediocre dances are $20 each and cans of beer are $4 each.  They have bottles of beer as well, but I can never pass up the opportunity to guzzle a few cans of beer in a strip club, so I'm not sure of the price for them.  Like all Connecticut clubs that serve alcohol, this place is topless, but I never feel like my dollar bills are well spent at the Scruples stage.    

Dance Setup (1.5/10) –  The owners of this place seem to have more invested in the club than do a lot of the other Bridgeport club owners, and the dance setup is designed to make sure that nothing happens that will cost them their club.  That's logical from a business perspective, but it's unfortunate for us customers.  All of the dances are given in a small sectioned off area in the back of the club where a bouncer watches everything.   The chairs are attached as if they were all part of a bench, but arm rests thankfully separate customers from each other.  The dance setup is really the main reason that I haven't spent a whole lot of time in this club. 

Club Setup (3/10) – There's a massage chair, a huge bar and a long stage, but the stage isn't placed at a logical angle and there are barely any tables. Worst of all, the club is way too bright, so you (or at least I) feel kind of creepy sitting at the stage staring at a girl.  Unfortunately, thanks to the odd angle of the stage, you don't really have any other option if you want a decent view of the action. 

Club Atmosphere (5.5/10) – The atmosphere at Scruples isn't bad at all by Bridgeport standards.  When I've been here, the crowd has been mostly small groups of guys who are stopping by on their way home from work.  The lack of tables prevents it from being great for larger groups and I probably wouldn't go here for a night out, but it has a nice relaxed vibe that makes it a decent option if you're looking for a place to enjoy a beer or two.     
Club Accessibility (3.5/5) – The neighborhood isn't the greatest, but it's not terrible for Bridgeport and the parking lot is monitored.  There's no fee for parking, though tips to the parking lot attendant are always appreciated.

Overall – This is one of the cleaner Bridgeport clubs and really isn't bad overall, but the dance setup and the dance quality will need to improve for me to ever make this one of my regular stops.  Unfortunately, I don't imagine that will be happening anytime soon.
