Recently at SXSW, Beatking named his top 5 stripclubs in houston. I am sure many will disagree with his choices. A lot of it depends on what kind of culture you want to surround yourself with.

Louisiana is considering a bill that would require strippers to be at least 21 years of age to work. The logic behind the bill is to help cut down on human trafficking, as most of the girls working in clubs are barely 18. The current age to work in the clubs is 18. Of course strippers and club owners are against the new law, which currently has overwhelming support in the house and senate. If it does go into effect, you might see surrounding states get an influx of girls migrating to dance on stage.
The Harris County Attorney is going after a southwest Houston strip club described as a thorn in the side of the community. Vince Ryan's office has filed a civil lawsuit against Wonderland Men's Club on Hillcroft Avenue.
The county attorney's office says the club has become a haven for violence and crime. Investigators say there have been 65 incidents over a two-year period at the after hours venue including a shooting that left a Houston-area rapper hospitalized in February. Assistant County Attorney Celena Vinson says the office is asking a judge to order the club owner, as well as the property owner, to clean up the business or face closure for a year.
