Like the fem-bots in Austin Powers, the dancers at this infamous celebrity hotspot are all almost identical, save for hair color. The gaudy booths allow for some expensive semi-private teasing. But reach out and touch, and the only thing you'll have scored is a strong-armed shove out the door by the bouncers. It's not as sleazy as the jiggle joints of the pre-Giuliani era; what you gain in safety you lose in prurient pleasures.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
