Club Bulletin March 2014 35 www.ExoticDancer.com 3. Proper lighting is essential to helping her look—and feel—beautiful. Another reason for locker room design in strip clubs is the lighting in the locker room. If you have lighting, such as the strip lighting for example, that radiates too much heat, is very expensive to operate and maintain or isn't the correct type of lighting for applying makeup, you have more problems then you may realize. The problem is that strip lighting is too hot, in terms of what is known as "color temperature." That is, it adds a yellow tint to flesh tones. When talking about white light sources we use the terms "warm" and "cool." Architectural lighting enables us to specify cooler "midrange" lighting, which enhances facial tones evenly. Also, lighting that is not radiating directly outward enables the entertainers to apply their makeup effectively. This may be an insignificant issue to an owner, but you can be sure it's of major importance to the entertainers. 4. Pamper your help. Consistent with the lighting, including other upgraded amenities will go a long way and will ultimately result in a win-win relationship with your entertainers. The locker room project we designed at Cheerleaders Philadelphia was consistent with every other project we did at that club. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if the entertainers are disappointed to go home at the end of the day! The locker room design at Cheerleaders included the following features: • Design concept, including floating double-mirror design, custom millwork and wainscotting, custom soffits and custom seating design by Cabaret Design Group; • Lightplane recessed linear lighting by Architectural Lighting Works; • Hunter Douglas open-cell ceiling by Hunter Douglas Contract; • Custom wall coverings by Koroseal Interior Products Group. • Custom carpeting by Alpha Patterned Carpet. There are many other products and improvements, but I think you get the point: Pamper your help. This approach will pay incredible dividends, as I am about to explain. 5. In the end, it's a win-win. Gentlemen's club owners who invest in locker room design will reap the rewards. First, you will attract the best entertainers, and the best entertainers will attract the customers with the most money. Guess who wins in the end? Of course, the rest of your club has to be up to par, in terms of design and operations. Don't think you are going to shortcut your way to financial success in the strip club industry if you aren't willing to invest in your club and your help. Design can help you maintain the competitive edge your nightclub needs in your market, and it doesn't need to cost the king's ransom (for example, Cabaret Design Group offers room makeovers starting under $1,000, and design fees for larger projects begin as low as $3 per square foot). We would be happy to assist any gentlemen's club, nightclub or bar owner who would like to incorporate time-proven design ideas into their venue.
