Upon arriving at this scary locale, I quickly ran from my car to the door as to not be shot or mugged in the parking lot. After making it indoors I spent the evening being propositioned by ugly women for private dances and even uglier women for sex in exchange for money.
The place is just very ghetto. If it is your style, then cool.. just not for me...
Pros: easy to find drugs and prostitutes
Cons: Horribly run operation that deserved to be shut down
horrible atmosphere...do not recommend!
Worth a visit. Old fashioned kind of funky place - owners appear to be right out of Goodfellas - not too smart - place needs some management, but it doesn't get too much in the way of enjoyment.
Dancers are the usual range of hot to not, but there are one or two that - in my opinion - are the sexiest dancers in the city. My personal favorite is someone whose stage name is Holland. She's not only extremely sexy but, if you get a dance from her, she knows how to carry on a funny smart and flirty conversation. This is far from true for many dancers in town & is what keeps me going back.
Pros: Some hot dancers
Cons: Some not so hot dancers
why does this manager think its okay to touch the workin girls.. pushes his role as a manager too far. not good
this place has great everything else. enough to come back for more even if this dude is too touchy.. fun place. place has variety music and girls. if you don't likeit, its because you are too boring and should be beat.
being that portland is the "air dance" capital, with the rest of the country pointing & laughing, it's rare to find a club that actually is run... well, like a strip club. oregon has strict liquor control laws, meaning that there's no touching, but that's to be expected here in portland. quite a few truly beautiful ladies make up for this. unfortunately, this club's hiring standards aren't the highest, so for every hot/beautiful lady, there is usually one who'd you pay NOT to take her close off. food is good. staff is good. the hot dancers gave some hot, hot, hot lap dances.
Pros: hot girls. nice interior.
Cons: some ugly girls.
Okay so me and the wife went to this strip club on a Sat night. We were there about 30 mins before we figured out that this club was lame. Honestly, the dancers looked like they were sleepwalking through their dancesets and they didn't wanna be there. Only about three of the dancers were even worth tipping. And we weren't impressed with the lapdances. One girl was so skinny that you could actually see the whole g-string in her butt. Don't bother wasting your money to go here. Go somewhere that actually has strippers that can dance.
Pros: Cheap to get in
Cons: Strippers could care less about dancing
I meet my buddies here at least 3 times a week. We watch the games, eat some grub, drink some drinks, and just hang.....the girls are cool to talk to, they arent pushy and aggressive like a lot of other clubs in town. Its a cool place to go any night of the week.
I have visited several clubs in Portland. I love Exotica because I always know what to expect. Whether its 12 pm or 12 am, its the most professional run club in Portland. The staff is friendly and smiling all the time. The dancers and the music are a good mix. I always feel comfortable when I go. The place is clean and no matter who I take, a business associate or my brother-in-law, I always walk out thankful I took them to the right place! Exotica has my vote as Portland's Best strip club!
Pros: CLEAN, FRIENDLY, FUN, BUSY, GREAT FOOD
Cons: I live in Tigard!
I work at this club and think it has gotten very trashy. All they ever play is rap/r&b and it attracts the wrong customer. All I ever see anymore are thugs wanting to trick girls out and they never tip or gat dances. I am looking for another club to dance at because I'm an enetrtainer not a trick. I refuse to come to work and be treated that way. I also don't like the fact that I have to be tortured by the terrible choice in music. Also when I mention the music, I'm told that the daytime managers want to play this music. I would only recommend black chicks to work for this establishment.
Pros: The stages are well placed.
Cons: Customers, not cute dancers
THE ENTIRE AREA IS ON THE DRAWING BOARD FOR REDEVELOPMENT,GREGORY ALAN WHEELER

This is a GREAT club. Yes, it is a strip club, so it is a bit darker inside, but otherwise it is clean and comfortable. The chairs are great, you can sit at the stage or at a table away from the stage. No pressure, no one hassles you, the girls are friendly (sometimes they will want to sit with you to buy them a drink or get a private dance, but if you don't want them to sit down and/or dance, no big deal.) Some guys come in and watch but don't tip, but the girls all say the rule is that if you are watching a girl dance, you should tip AT LEAST $1 per song, or the bare minimum of $1 for a 2-song set. Private dances at $20 each, on comfy couches. The drinks are good, and a big screen TV is there if there is a big game on.
I have never been there after 10 at night, so if there are any fights or problems in the parking lot, I think it is after midnight or at closing it happens. Management has been doing a lot better keeping an eye out and with terrific bouncers. I am a middle aged white guy and have NEVER had a problem there.
A truly great place for gentlemanly entertainment: beautiful dancers!
This is a really dirty place inside and out. Illegal medicine (won't let me use the d word) deals and fights happen in the parking lot and in the shadowy parts of the bar regularly. Portland police have been targeting this place to shut down, and this was on the news recently. My old neighbor was recently fired from this place because of an overdramatic co-worker. My old neighbor did a really good job at the bar, and this bar will be hurting w/o this employee. Who goes to a 21 and over bar in North Portland anyway?
Cons: Bad to employees, customers, and the public
DUDE, IT ROCKS.
GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS ... WHAT MORE CAN I SAY? OH...AND DRINKS, TOO! DID I MENTION REALLY NICE, HOT AND DIVERSERE WOMEN?
GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS
Only strip club I consistently go to. I like the feel and the atmosphere, relaxed and chilled. Good place to come out to.
Pros: atmosphere, food, girls
Cons: sometimes bad dancers, earlier in the day, too full sometimes
