NYC club debuts 25 foot stripper pole for Super Bowl visitors

With tens of thousands of Super Bowl fans ready to flood New York City bars and restaurants for the big game, one Midtown strip club is doing its part to handle the overflowing crowds. Well ... at least for the overabundance of dancers expected to arrive vying for the visitors' dollar bills.

Vivid Cabaret has installed a 25 foot steel pole — more than twice as tall as other stripper poles in the city — that can hold at least a trio of twerking dancers at once, reports the New York Daily News.

That's almost three stories of near-nakedness.

“It’s sturdy enough and long enough to do all the tricks I know,” said 22-year-old dancer Carlie. “There are a lot of clubs, but the poles are never big enough to do all the tricks I’ve learned.”

The club had its “soft opening” this week, with an official G-string cutting on Jan. 29 — timed to the opening of “Super Bowl Boulevard,” the NFL’s strip of Broadway from 34th to 47th Streets. 

Its nearby Sixth Ave. location will make it a convenient spot to watch the ladies work the pole if another chilly polar vortex hits town.

To the uninitiated visitors, the dancers are never naked because N.Y. state law forbids nudity when alcohol is served. And liquor is available.

Manager Shaun Kevlin says a number of professional athletes have already reserved tables for Super Bowl game day, Feb. 2. He declined to name names  — of course.
