The Penthouse Club Philadelphia
3001 Castor Avenue, Philadelphia, PA

The Low Down
“Where the Magazine Come to Life” is aptly names for one of Philadelphia’s most extravagant and upscale topless gentlemen’s clubs, one that I greatly enjoyed reviewing recently.
Location & Facilities – 4.5 Stars
The Penthouse Club Philadelphia, although located minutes off of I-95 in Philadelphia’s Port Richmond section, surprisingly wasn’t built closer to major businesses and transportation. I arrived at 9:00pm on a Wednesday evening and, after valeting my car for $7 and paying my $10 cover (Thu-Sun, $20 Fri & Sat), I made my way into the elaborate interior of this two-level club, which features three bars, eight flat screens in the main club area and two motorcycles that descended from above the stage for a very sexy bike show with a couple of the lovely dancers. The men’s room was stocked with cigars and the normal accompaniment of mints, colognes and body sprays, attended to by the very friendly Ralph that evening.
Staff – 5 Stars
I was greeted at the bar by Robyn, the knowledgeable and outgoing bartender who was quick to attend to my food and beverage needs. The staff at The Penthouse Club doesn’t disappoint as their main focus is making your customer experience as exciting as possible. Even on a weeknight, the lovely Lisa was offering massages to bar patrons for the length of two songs for $30.
Food & Drinks – 5 Stars
The Penthouse Club goes all-out with its food and beverage options, starting out with appetizers such as Asian dumplings, wings and shrimp cocktail and continuing on with their entrée lineup that features filet mignon, chicken marsala, salmon and fettuccine alfredo. I started my culinary experience with a Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale and continued along with the crispy barbecue shrimp appetizer and a Penthouse Burger, both excellent choices. Sushi is also available on Friday evenings after 7:00pm.
Dancers – 4 Stars
My major complaint with The Penthouse Club is that there were very few girls when I went; I wasn’t directly approached for company until about forty five minutes (!) after I sat down at the bar. The club features a number of attractive, mostly younger Caucasian dancers, but I found myself drawn to the Puerto Rican cutie named Jocelyn who provided excellent company at the bar and an even better experience during my couch dance upstairs.
Value – 4 Stars
The Penthouse Club caters to a wealthier clientele, and the prices certainly reflect that. The club offers bottle service with a wide selection of vodka, scotch, tequila and cognac. Bottles of Patron Burdeos tequila and Ace of Spades champagne top the list at $900 each. Lap dances are $30 per song and Champagne Court experiences are $300 for 30 minutes and $500 for one hour although neither include alcoholic drinks.
Website & Social Media – 5 Stars
The Penthouse Club’s website offers a wide variety information on upcoming events (such as UFC fights, couples nights on Sundays and drink specials), party packages, videos and links to their social media sites so you stay up to date on news and special events.
While you may need to be able to afford the rock star life to enjoy all that The Penthouse Club has to offer, you won’t be disappointed at the amazing experience that you’ll find there on almost every budget!
