It takes a lot more than naked “wimmen” to turn our head when it comes to Best Strip Club. After a whopping $1.5 million renovation, which includes a posh and private VIP area, the addition of a head chef to prepare everything on an extensive menu from scratch, and a wall of screens to rival Vegas, Fantasies qualifies as a full experience. Located at the foot of the Curtis Bay neighborhood, Fantasies boasts a clientele with 20 percent women, which we noticed right away during our visits. This is not a low-down strip club, but more of an adult entertainment venue. The ladies were nice, beautiful, not intrusive at all, and actually fun to hang out with. One discussed a pretty obscure band with us as we sat at the bar. The dancing routines were top notch and the beer prices fair. Fantasies is pretty much the gold standard for what we look for in a strip club.
