What is the Strip Clubs Industry?
Companies in this industry operate adult entertainment venues in which striptease or other erotic or exotic dance is regularly performed for males, females or mixed audiences. Establishments may also serve food, beverages, alcohol or offer patrons the opportunity to bring their own beverages.
