Bikini bars are the strange cousin of strip clubs—though some aficionados will insist they can’t be called strip clubs at all—and in LA they host some of the best pole dancing shows in the city. They also usually don’t have a cover. Bikini bars tend to stand out as fantastic dives with fun atmospheres, creative dancers and a solid mix of customers (we'll take our hipsters with a side of dirty old men—and there will always be dirty old men). Turns out, all the best bikini bars are in Hollywood—central location, only marginally seedy, easily Uber-able. These bars are great for a fun night out with a group of friends or the occasional adventurous Tinder date, or when you're just in the mood for some sexy dance moves. Note: Not all bikini bars offer private dances, but those that do start at $20 a pop, which seems to be industry standard in LA.
