The Low Down No matter which Penthouse Club location I visit, it’s always the same… a well-appointed interior, amazing food and drinks as well as some of the most beautiful women ever to grace a gentlemen’s club stage. I arrived at Penthouse’s New York City location on a Friday evening, quieter than usual being a holiday evening but still an enjoyable and entertaining experience. As with all of my reviews, I’ve rated the clubs features and amenities on a scale of one to five, with five being the best possible score.
Location & Facilities – 5 Stars Located in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan and within a few blocks of the Lincoln Tunnel, Times Square and Madison Square Garden, this 10,000 square foot, two story club might be smaller than what you’d expect from a large chain club (due primarily to the high New York City rents), but makes up for it with a main floor with a stage, pole and bar and a second floor offering the club’s signature Harem Rooms, champagne court, bar and their signature Robert’s Steakhouse. When planning your visit, make sure to take an Uber/Lyft, taxi, subway or other mode of transit if you can to avoid the expensive nearby parking lots and garages.
Staff – 5 Stars The staff at Penthouse Executive Club are both friendly and professional, as one would come to expect from a club that caters to the most affluent and sophisticated of clientele. Special thanks to Sergio, the Floor Manager who gave me a tour of the club during my visit.
Food & Drink – 5 Stars The food and drink at Penthouse Executive Club are second to none. While I enjoyed a bottle of Sam Adams for $10.00 from their selection of great beers as well as top-shelf liquor selection, the club doesn’t hold back when it comes to luxury, offering a bottle of Dom Perignon for $600.00, a 12-liter bottle of Veuve Cliquet Yellow Label for $3,500.00 and Louis XIII by the shot ranging from $195.00 to $500.00. The one amenity that sets Penthouse Executive Club apart from many of its competitors is Robert’s Steakhouse, one of the few gentlemen’s clubs to offer a fine dining experience alongside the club atmosphere and lovely dancers. With steak selections including porterhouse, filet mignon, and rib eye along with stuffed lobster, pan roasted wild salmon and plenty of sides and appetizers, Robert’s Steakhouse is reason enough alone to visit this amazing establishment.
Dancers – 5 Stars While I didn’t spend time with any one particular dancer during my visit, I can tell you that all of the dancers at Penthouse Executive Club are amongst some of the beautiful you’ll find in the New York City gentlemen’s club scene, featuring a variety of ethnicities and ages to satisfy even the most discriminating gentlemen’s club connoisseur.
Value – 4 Stars With luxury comes a price tag, and since Penthouse Executive Club caters primarily to a high-end clientele, be sure to budget your trip accordingly. Don’t forget to visit PECNYC.com for a complimentary admission coupon.
Website & Social Media – 5 Stars The club’s website, PECNYC.com, is as high-end and lavish as the club itself, offering a beautiful design with plenty of information about the club, including general club information, directions, a free door pass, specials as well as a restaurant menu and pictures for Robert’s Steakhouse. Buried at the bottom of the page, you’ll also find links to their Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare social media pages.
In Brief… For the utmost in class and sophistication, few New York City gentlemen’s clubs can compete with everything that Penthouse Executive Club has to offer.
