Strokers Club (Clarkston, GA)

Quality of Dances (8.5/20) – There's strictly one-way contact, but these are still some of the best table dances that you'll find at a non-dive bar in Atlanta.  Most of the girls alternate between grinding, friction and air, and you'll get the occasional tits in the face.  They almost feel like full fledged lap dances, so you really can't complain for $10 each.  It's just unfortunate that there's no VIP room at Strokers, because these are the type of table dances that whet your appetite for something a little more aggressive.

Quality of Dancers (6.5/10) – They have a few blazing dancers and lots of girls in the 7-8 range, but quality control is fairly low, with several 5s and 6s working the night that I was there. Some of the girls were too thin and some had saggy tits, but a room full of hypnotizing asses did a lot to help me overlook the less attractive ladies.

Number of Dancers (7/10) – They have plenty of ladies at Strokers.  There were a few dozen working late on a Saturday night, and even though the club was packed with guys, there were still more than enough dancers to keep everyone satisfied.

Variety/Diversity of Dancers (1.5/5) – Almost every lady is this place is black and in her 20's.  There's a good bit of variation of body types, but I can't give them many points here because every hot girl had a very similar look - dark skin and in good shape, but a little thicker than you'd see at a club like the Pink Pony.  

Attitude of Dancers (7/10) – Strokers is a nationally famous club, but it still very much has a neighborhood feel to it, and the girls treat you accordingly.  Everyone that I talked to was happy to sit and chat, and they were all very friendly to talk to, whether or not I accepted their offers for dances.

Value (8/10) – The address says Clarkston, but this is an Atlanta club, so you shouldn't be surprised to learn that there's a $10 cover, $5 beers, $10 table dances and a bathroom attendant who's looking for a tip.  If you've never been to the area, those are the exact same prices that you'll find at 90% of the clubs.  What you won't find at 90% (or even 20%) of the clubs are table dances that resemble lap dances, and that's what makes Strokers such a bargain.  The stage action isn't anything too fancy, but the view does make this an ass man's paradise.  And, since you won't be sitting at the stage anyway, it's a free show.

Dance Setup (0/10) – The dance setup for table dances is a zero by default, and Strokers doesn't do anything to make me deviate from that.  On a weekend night, you'll be lucky to even get a seat unless you're getting bottle service, but, if you do, you'll be right out in the open under the bright lights.  If not, you'll be standing.  It's hard to image a worse dance setup than this.

Club Setup (2.5/10) – The size is sufficient for the large crowds that are drawn to Strokers, but that and the awesome rotating stage with 3 poles are the only really good things about the place.  There are a bunch of pool tables on one side of the room, a long but insufficient bar in the back and several tables and seats that are reserved for VIPs and bottle service on weekend evenings.  If you can't and/or aren't willing to get one of those seats, you're going to have to stand, and there's really nowhere great to do that.  It's way too bright too, which just makes the standing situation even more awkward.   I found that my best chance of getting a seat was to ask the girls if there was somewhere that we could sit for a dance, and that strategy worked to get me a seat in the area in the back corner near a shitty, tiny stage and the secondary bar.  I'm not complaining though about that seat though - if you're at Strokers when it's busy, you'll be happy with any seat that you manage to get.

Club Atmosphere (3/10) – This place has a bit of a neighborhood vibe and can be kind of fun, but the intense security pat down at the door and the security guy inside who bitches at people for standing in the wrong place really detracted from the atmosphere.  The cops who were searching for someone in the parking lot as I left just sealed the deal for me.  The music is good, though, if you're into rap, and it's not so overwhelmingly loud as to prevent conversations.  

Club Accessibility (2/5) – It cost me $40 to cab all the way out to Clarkston to get to Strokers from downtown Atlanta, and I'm fairly certain that the taxi driver cut me a solid deal to even get it for that price.  If you're at Oasis and want to try something a little more exotic, Strokers isn't terribly far, but it really isn't close to much else.  Since it's in a strip mall, there is at least plenty of parking.

Overall – Strokers isn't quite as good as its reputation would lead you to believe, but it's still a very solid club if you're looking for attractive black dancers and bargain table dances.  I'd go to Magic City or Onyx if you're looking for the hottest black dancers or Kamal's 21 if you're looking to get to a neighborhood-style black club without traveling too far, but Strokers does have the best table dances of any of the black clubs in Atlanta.  I doubt that I'll be back because it's just not better than the other clubs by a wide enough margin to overcome the inconvenience factor, but if you find yourself in the area or have plenty of time to spare, then, by all means, stop on by.
