I was contemplating a Documentary along the lines of National Geographic Channel actually.

Cathouse is OK to take a Western woman to. The girls there stay behind the bar and don't dress in an overly slutty manner.

Shanghai would also be OK.

Larry's would be a waste of time for this type of excursion, it's not a hostess bar, more of a drinking-focused place for middle aged American guys who like to smoke and flirt with staff.

Howie's is also very foreign female-friendly and might be fun if you are out after midnight. It's not really a hostess bar but the girls there really do hustle lady drinks.

That place is a trip! I would suggest it!


And I agree about Larry's.

It's a great place, but wouldn't be very fun on your itinerary.

Suprised no one has mentioned the Black Cat on 51st its been my local for about 9 years since it opened. Its an inside / outside bar - having an outside section of chairs and tables and the bar itself is open to the outside imo its a low key hostess bar. Given its position it seems to avoid much of the rif raf which tend to bypass it going from Walkabout to GSM. It seems to attract western couples of various ages despite being a hostess bar. My wife likes to go on music nights (Mon Thir). Hostesses are very polite and friendly to couples. Heres one saying hello :D

I believe it was Leibniz, in his discussion of the problem of evil, who referenced this duality as "the worst of all possible worlds."

I'm surprised no one hasn't mentioned Blue Chili, not a "hostess" bar per-say but interesting to see the different side and shows Fri-Sat if I'm not mistaken.
