DC's gay entertainment complex reborn
A whole cast of female illusionists at Ziegfield's and the chorus of all nude male dancers at Secrets are the draw at this two-level entertainment venue, which manages the feat of both great drag and great stripping. The cover charge includes a discount on your first drink. A must-stop! But remember, 21+ and every girl must have a male escort to go to Secrets.

      More straight than gay on Saturdays
      I've been coming to Ziegfield's since the 1990s. So I've been really saddened by the fact that it's been taken over by hen parties on Saturday nights. The last time I went (4-22-17) was particularly bad: the entire floor area in front of the stage was women only, many of whom were loud, drunk, and rude. More than once the owner had to yell at some of them, to little avail. I understand that women like the "safe" space of gay bars, but this is too much.

      Hot naked MEN and drinks - fun times!
      Want more can you ask for? I was in DC last week on business and took a short Uber ride from my on hotel on a Thurs. night. Z/S is in a dark industrial area. Only the upstairs Secrets bar was open, but that is what I came for. There was a nominal cover charge and the drinks were more then average, but was expected. There were about 20 people in the bar at any given time and 4 naked men dancing continuously. 2 directly on the bar and 2 on boxes. The dancers were very friendly and attractive. A couple had erections at times which was a crowd pleaser. I stayed longer than I thought I would. It was told it was more livelier on the weekends. I would be there a lot if I lived in DC.

    • Ah the good old days
      Been going to Z/S since the early 90's during the heyday of DC club culture. DC was so raunchy scary and exciting back then. Z/S is a dimmer version of itself but still my go-to place in DC.

      Nice Place
      There should be more venues like this in other cities! Had a nice visit, would like to see the club add a drink menu, with prices, like some of the other venues in town!

      Best strippers I've seen
      I'm not a local but every time my partner and I go to DC we make a trip to Z/S. The drag show is always enjoyable but the best part is all of the strippers. They have a man or two for nearly every taste which makes it a nice variety. The best part is that most of the strippers are very approachable and will actually speak to you without being pushy. Would like to explore more of DC nightlife but this will definitely be a staple.

      eye candy yum
      I've enjoyed myself here. Hot bodies everywhere with beautiful packages. Dancing on bars over your head and hanging on poles flipping and near tricks. Must go

      OK CLUB
      The club is ok...I used to go a lot along with alot of my friends. However, Rusty (the bouncer) was extremely rude and crude to a friend of mine. All of us have been restricting our use of the club. Sorry Steve.....but he is down right rude!!! We used to go almost nightly. Now maybe once in a blue moon.

      too many women to have fun.
      Even on amateur night, packed with women. The dicks are nice, but hard to enjoy with shrieking drunk chicks.

      Change has not been good
      Visited in April after several years absence. The new location is essentially the same area as before, but the personality is definitely NOT. Rude bouncers make for an unpleasant entry. Dancers now are restricted to their little platforms. It is no longer a "user-friendly" stripper experience and, frankly, the strippers now all look like straight drug addicts. I'll never go back.

      what's not to love?
      great place. a lot of fun. chock full of strippers. and should be there. it's funny to be in a place where there are men dressed as women right next to men dressed in nothing. unless you count socks. fun to dance so close to the strippers. a bit odd at first, but you get used to it real fast. ;) music isn't bad. and i've never had a hard time bringing my female friends with me. i wonder if the doorman just assumed they were drag queens.. come to think of it, they are kinda mannish...

      Naked guys
      As a huge fan of strippers, this is one of the best places in the U.S. to hang out. Crazy hot to see the guys. Whether out on the stage or above your head at the bars, it is the mecca for guys who love to lose themselves in getting worked for ca$h. Are there some downsides? Yeah, sometimes too many females and the bar management is aggressive in terms of policing any additional sexual activity, but I can't deduct from my rating for that--after all, they need to stay in business. By about midnight, guys are so crazy horned up if you can't find someone to take back to your hotel room you aren't trying... everyone is trying so hard to find a release after being toyed with by strippers all night that they'll hook up with anything male that moves.
