Looking for a night out in Barcelona to sample the city’s more adult delights?
The cosmopolitan capital of Spain’s Catalonia region is renowned for its nightlife and excellent adult entertainment. As well as brothels, erotic massage parlours and libertine clubs , Barcelona also has plenty of gentleman’s lounges and strip bars. Here, you can enjoy the attentions of exotic dancers before heading to a private suite for some one-on-one time. The Darling Strip Club is one of a few dozen such venues in the city and they have a fine reputation for service as well as for attracting some of the hottest strippers in town.
In this feature we’ll give you a full rundown of the facilities and services on offer at one of Barcelona’s top strip clubs and brothel as well as take a little peek inside.
The Darling Strip Club
‘Live what others only dream about’
Situated in the heart of Barcelona, the Darling Strip Club has a reputation for being one of the best gentleman’s clubs and brothels in the city.
Opened in 2015, it is a modern venue that is elegantly designed in a high-end style and offers a professional service. From the bar and waiting staff, dancers and courtesans to the security and management team, the atmosphere here is safe, discreet and welcoming.
The double-door entranceway opens into a small cocktail lounge in which most of the space is taken up by a fully-equipped bar . Comfortable seating is then arranged on the other side of the room with a single podium and dancing pole from which one or two of the resident companions will perform.
Ladies also circulate the bar area to perform lap dances and to meet and greet guests in the hope that one (or more) will want to take them upstairs to one of the ten private suites. The idea is that customers can enjoy the company of their professional courtesans in the comfort of the lounge bar before deciding on who to accompany upstairs.
Whilst there is no obligation to do so and you can certainly enjoy a few hours here watching the dancers, the Darling Strip Club primarily operates as a brothel.
The Girls at Darling Strip Club
‘Simply the best’
Whilst all of the dancers at Darling Strip Club can put on a show in the main lounge including pole dancing, lap dancing and generally behaving seductively, some are available for private hire. Yes, for the right price (see below), you can take one of the ladies upstairs to one of the ten private rooms and enjoy their one-on-one ‘company’. This doesn’t apply to the waitresses of bar staff, only the some of the dancers or other bar girls.
Like many of Spain’s adult venues, the stable of girls available at Darling Strip Club is subject to constant changes. Some dancers work seasonally whilst others may be touring venues across Europe. However, Darling’s has a good reputation for hiring some of the most beautiful dancers and courtesans in the city with a high standard in terms of physical beauty, temperament and talent.
Unlike some of the ‘seedier’ clubs in the city, reviews at Darlings suggest that the ladies are friendly, not too pushy and eager to please.
In all, there are around 40-50 girls working the Darling Strip Club on a busy night; not all of these will be available at any one time but work in rotation with some providing private companions services, some performing and others circulating the bar to entertain customers.
The Suites at Darling Strip Club
‘Where your sex fantasies come true’
Though the central lounge and bar isn’t the largest you can find in Spain, nor would it pass for a ‘super-club’, it does have ten different suites offering private accommodation for hire.
Each room is themed around an international city or country and, in addition to a bed, is equipped with a spa bathtub, television and music.
Sleek and simple in design, the facilities are modern and are created with hygiene and comfort in mind. All rooms also come equipped with a safe for guests to store their personal and valuable belongings.
- Bali Suite – inspired by the ‘Island of the Gods’, this room is decorated in black, gold and yellow with a corner tub, toilet and bed.
- Barcelona Suite – decorated in the famous Gaudi trencadis style, this room is fitted with an enormous walk-in jet shower.
- Bora Bora Suite – with a step-up sunken whirlpool bath, this room features a feature wall that will transport guests to the Pacific islands of French Polynesia.
- London Suite – an unusual choice for a thematic style, the décor here is apparently inspired with an urban feel from the UK’s capital. However, it is a feature print of a huge red telephone box that dominates the room!
- Moscow Suite – A small room that tips a nod to the Russian capital with a large print on one wall of St. Basil’s Cathedral.
- New York Suite – another urban landscape provides the backdrop to this room and the Big Apple is rendered in monochrome with a large black and white print.
- Paris Suite – a functional room with bed, bath and toilet facilities, the design here is based around a view of the Louvre; the cradle of France’s rich art history.
- Roma Suite – with an elegant step-in mosaic-tiled tub, the Roma Suite is inspired by the classic elegance of the ‘Eternal City’.
- Sydney Suite – again, a room that has been ‘themed’ around a city with a view of its most iconic landmark; here, it’s the Sydney Opera House that provides the un-erotic backdrop.
There is also a VIP suite available to hire that provides a far more luxurious and exclusive experience.
