13710 Eight Mile Rd., Detroit; 313-371-3700; playersdetroit.net

Players is known for its premium cuts of meat — literally, this club's menu includes a number of carnivore delights, and even if meat is not your thing, you gotta respect that. Plus, it serves up a different dinner special each night of the week, so you're in for a treat whenever you stop in. Sure beats dinner and a movie, eh?

20771 Eight Mile Rd., Detroit, 48219; 313-541-7000; penthousetdetroit.com

This Eight Mile gentlemen's club is known for its exciting performances. According to Yelp reviews, "At certain times during the night, two dancers will get up on a pair of motorcycles that come down from the rafters." The dancers tend to use a lot of props, and the club seems to care about production value, as they utilize a lot of fun costumes and lights for the performances.

31 N. Washington St., Ypsilanti; 734-487-2110; dejavuypsilanti.com

Déjà Vu prides itself on being the area's only fully nude strip club, although the tradeoff is that the club only serves pop. Yes, on some nights, you may see more than your fair share of late-teens desperate for their first look at a booby. But somehow, that makes it all seem quite sweet.

515 S. Washington Ave., Royal Oak; 248-515-2551; five15.net

We have to agree with our readers; this event is awesome. The host of the evening is a drag queen who spits vile, crude humor at the crowd all evening. It really is so much fun, and is especially fun if you grab a drink or two before it starts. In our own review, we wrote that the event "transcends bingo; it becomes an experience of its own." We're not sure what that means, but transcending bingo sounds like a lifetime goal, so we'll see you there next week.

24500 Henry B Joy Blvd., Mount Clemens; 586-468-8900

This Mount Clemens classic is popular with those who want a $15 dance and an affordable beer in a no-frills environment. Sure, the place could do with a lick of pain, but who wants to pay $20 for a dance?

415 E. Congress St., Detroit; 313-961-5005; legendsindetroit.com

Back in November, a small fire erupted in the club and it's been closed for repairs ever since. That didn't stop you from voting it No. 1. We're sure when Legends reopens, it'll pick up right where it left off: offering three floors of high-quality everything. From its beautiful dancers to a state-of-the-art sound and lighting system, the downtown club is a feast for the senses and a destination for those with discerning tastes.
