Adonis Lounge :: The All-Male Review Redux

by JC Alvarez
Sunday Mar 17, 2013

New York City's all-male revue Adonis Lounge is moving into its new digs in midtown, Manhattan. The new location at 22 West 39th Street between 5th and 6th Avenue is bringing all the hard-body action into a new fully-realized luxury space. Tim Adonis the brains (and the brawn) behind one of the only all-male strip joints in the country, promises big thrills for your stash of bills. "As a result of having a much larger, more state-of-the-art venue for hosting the Adonis Lounge shows," he said, "we are much better able to accommodate all our patrons and rapidly growing fan base."

Spending more than a year on the East Side and building a sizable audience, the new location is much more upscale and guarantees everyone a full-eye view of the stage's reigning act. The midtown location has a larger and fully lit dance stage that can be clearly seen from the main room's comfortable sofa seating and tables. "Adonis has become synonymous with providing the biggest, best, most varied and diverse pool of talent in the entire industry," Tim added. "In the new location we will be able to provide even more dancers for your viewing and groping pleasure."

Certainly the biggest draw bringing fans back again and again to the Adonis Lounge is the fact that Tim has mastered continuously attracting one of the most exclusive and sexy line-ups on its roster of performers. "Besides our core dancers who have become Adonis legends and are always in demand, we also know that variety is the spice of life," said Tim. "After all, who wants to eat the same hot dog every day?" Yes...he said that as well.

Big Bodied Headliners

Adonis Lounge never fails to deliver with some of the adult industry’s most well-known headliners. Crowd pleasers have included Randy Blue Studios porn stars including the beefiest biceps in the biz Braden Charron and Brad Barnes. "We will have muscle gods, bears, cubs, twinks, Latinos, Europeans, porn stars, fitness models, as well as occasional weekly guests we fly in from across the country like Marcus Patrick, Zeb Atlas, and MC Sean James." All in all, every night that the Adonis Lounge is in effect (shows nightly on Wed and Sat), guests can expect 30+ acts to take the stage, and be accessible to them for private lap dances in the Champagne Room.

The new location features more space in its curtained Champagne Rooms, as well as new reclinable seats for an ultra-private experience. As Tim put it: "The goal is to make every Adonis Lounge experience the best and most memorable for all our patrons!"

With the growing appeal the Adonis Lounge brand is enjoying, it’s no surprise that the Adonis Lounge will soon be launching on the West Coast. Tim’s brother Matt, who was in NYC to help with the move to the new space will be in charge of the Los Angeles branch. "I have my own personality, flavor and humor," Matt insists, "but I’m right in line with Tim’s vision of Adonis Lounge and I’m sure LA will be a big hit as well!" The intent is to duplicate the format and formula, everything that has made Adonis NY a hit. "We’re super excited to get it going! Two brothers on two coasts leading the Adonis charge! Come see us!"

Sex Appeal

It’s hard to imagine that with today’s Internet sex sites and our "hook-up" app addicted culture that the live all-male revue would even have a place in the scheme of nightlife titillation. But as evidenced by the success of what Tim and Matt are brewing with Adonis Lounge, the curtains into the Champagne Room are still being readily drawn nightly.

"We are surprised and humbled daily by the success of Adonis and the continued support from all our patrons," Tim said. "We really take pride in what we do, what we provide, how we provide it and how our patrons respond. I think this has really contributed to the growth and success of Adonis." With Matt now at the helm of the LA space soon to launch, the two brothers are more than happy to share in prosperity of their brand and bring more hot action to their audience. "We want to extend the opportunity for Adonis enjoyment and entertainment to all our friends and patrons in LA."

In the meantime visit the Adonis Lounge in New York City at 22 West 39th Street, between 5th and 6th Avenue. It’s a $10 cover to the more than 30 dancers featured every Wednesday and Saturday night with drink specials from 9pm to 2am.
