There's no touching the performers in a strip club, and it seems there's also no touching Silk Exotic when it comes Milwaukee's choice for best bar for a boys' night out or bachelor party.
For the third straight year, the gentlemen's club at 11400 W. Silver Spring Dr. topped the competition, finishing far ahead of runners-up SPiN Milwaukee (soon to be renamed Evolution Milwaukee Gastro Pong), Jo-Cats Pub, Trinity Three Irish Pubs and Safe House.
With almost 200 women on staff and celebrity clientele, Silk seems to be the strip club of choice (if that's your thing). It dominated the former "Best Strip Club" category in the past, and if the last three years have been any indication, it seems that domination has continued into the "Best Bar for a Boys' Night Out/Bachelor's Party" arena as well.
And judging from its attempts to open another club downtown in the Ladybug nightclub – officially called 618 Live on Water – it might keep a solid hold on that crown for a while.
The editors of OnMilwaukee.com decided on a more clothing-friendly option with their choice, the Safe House.
OnMilwaukee.com editors' pick: Safe House
2. SPiN Milwaukee
