      Great bar
      I found the staff to be friendly. The Dancers were very hot, fun, friendly and playful.. If you do not enjoy this bar your nothing more than a bitter queen. The guys are hot, sexy, and fun and very playful. LOVED IT>

      Great Place
      I have been to Swinging Richards several times and have enjoyed every visit. I do have a couple of favorite dancers that I spend my time with (Tripp and Travis) and they are the best. All the dancers are super nice and no one has ever pressured me into anything. I would encourage anyone wanting to see some HOT guys and have a good time to check this place out.

      Strictly eye candy, don't do a VIP room
      This bar is expensive, plain and simple, and while a few of the strippers are hot, the majority are mediocre. A 30 minute VIP will set you back $275, an hour VIP is $525. Most dancers here are straight and won't do anything sexual I spent $525 for an hour and left really disappointed, the dancer was very lackluster and basically was riding the clock trying to kill time, after 45 minutes he tried to leave even though we had 15 mins left. Needless to say I left And will never be back

      I was a dancer in 98-99 at Richards and visit often. I just have to speak out about the outright lies I have seen in reviews...sure Richards is a little pricey. Come on, dollar bills. Some of the dancers lose money dancing and nobody cheats anyone. They are all at least gay friendly.

      Best male review I have ever seen. A "must" in Atlanta.

      My partner & I decided to give it a try& it was really bad. Sleazy gay for pay strippers + watered down drinks = one big ip off! Do yourself a favor & give this place a pass.

      Unbiased review from out of town traveler
      I was told SR was one of the places to check out because there are very few places like it in the US, or in the world for that matter so who wouldn't right? I got dropped off by a cab and ran into a guy sitting in a chair in front of the club asking me for 3$, I was like I thought cover was 10$ tonight he said NOTHING so I go ahead and gave him 5 and told him to keep the change. I walk in the club and a very nice guy welcomed me, asked for my ID and 10 dollars cover. I told him I paid outside and then he informed me that was for my parking....but..um..I took a cab and he saw me get out of one right in front of him. So I went outside and got my money back from a douche and told him that was a bad first impression, he just smirked. Well every place has a bad apple or two right? I walk in the club and it truly was something different and unique. Guys were naked, flirtatious, easy on the eyes it was a gay heaven. Drinks were super strong and worth the price, one sufficed for me I kept sipping slowly with some water because I don't drink often which results in low tolerance. First thing that rubbed me the wrong way was manager/pimp Matt kept yelling at girls and people not tipping. Of course you want to encourage people to participate but there is better way to come across than calling people FAT, UGLY, WHITE TRASH etc. I felt like I was in the middle of a fight, uncomfortable and awkward. I turn to couple of girls and apologized to them for Matt's behavior ensuring them that he does not represent gay men in general. One of them told me she knew him personally and learned to tolerate him but if you take every negative stereotype of gay men and wrap it into one you get Matt. She said it was ironic because on his FB page he will belittle overweight and older people yet that was a big percentage of his clientele. He is not aging gracefully so he abuses his position to mingle with young hetereoflexible boys thinking he's still got it. Then come the dancers, oh boy where do we start, I guess we can with con artist, stay away from ...well most of them...they will lie about the number of dances they provide, offer drugs and sex for extra money, watch out for Sean, and David they are the worst! One in particular that stood out as predatory towards women was Czech guy who went by Dani. In PRIVATE dace he told me how he didn't like working in Miami club because of all Latinos and tonight was slow because black people only tipped black dancers and they never have any money. I WAS APPALLED! But it doesn't end there, he kept going from girl to a girl asking to "give them a ride, and at closing time he kept pulling up by girls waiting a cab to take them home. One day I run into him jogging in park and this one girl stopped to get some water out of fountain he kept following her around and trying to talk to her despite her having headphones on! So I kept getting dances from different guys hoping I'll find a decent guy that will not offer me anything illegal but that never happened. I did find out that most of them are married, got girlfriends and play on the side, and when I asked about Bliss one of them told me" THAT'S WHERE ALL THE TWINKY FAGS WORK THAT GOT AIDS. I dropped $600 on drink, tips, dances etc and really wanted to take it in and get the experience that I got at female strip clubs but this place is a huge waste of time and money and it was my first and last time here. Don't believe me? By all means check it for yourself and learn the hard way. Next visit I will check out Bliss.

      Fun Fun Fun!
      I recently moved from Charlotte, whereas the boys can go down to their undies; however, there's not such non-sense at Richards. One sees it ALL! I was lucky enough to have one of the strippers tell me the ropes....of how some strippers try and trick one with additional songs, etc. So that was a good thing. Out of all of the strippers, I have narrowed mine down to 3 chosen one for my $$$, who treat me the way I desire. However, beware of the short, loud, Italian looking guy who claims to be a porn star, he is a con-artist, and even the other strippers consider him to be a douche bag. Otherwise, have fun like I did! I don't mind paying $3 to park, because my car is watched by the attendant, and it's well lit in the parking lot. NOTE: I am not a drinker, so my mind was always CLEAR during my visits.

      Gay men need to wise up
      Stop the self loathing, and stop giving these str8 assholes your money. The place needs a new paint job and new carpet to start with. The dj spends the majoity of the evenig putting women down. The majority of the dancers are there to make money of the gay crowd, which in turn, they talk bad about, and put you down behind your back. Most of them are gay for pay, which explains the boner pills, and being in an altered state just to get through the night. My advice is to find the gay dancer, if any, and spend the money on him.

      Had a great ime
      Guys, it's a strip club. Don't go there if you are looking for something other than that. Sure the prices are steep and I really don't expect the stripper who comes up to me to do so because of anything else then to make a buck. I loved it. The venue is great the drinks are fine and the guys look amazing. What more do you want? I don't expect to meet mr right, I just enjoy the hot guys and I expect to pay for that. Just let yourself go and have fun, I did!
