The 24/7 Strip Club

By Vince Leona

Mason Gleiver who was born and raised in Philadelphia has created a strip club that never closes! I talked to Mason about this new venture!

VL: 24 hour strip club! That is very ambitious.

MG: I worked in the fitness club industry, and by far, the clubs that made the most money and had the most success were the clubs that didn’t close. So when I partnered on this strip club project, I said that it had to be twenty four hours a day and seven days a week. I said that we have to be open on Christmas, New Years, Easter, Thanksgiving, etc. We wanted to operate like a casino! We are a destination that is always there. We will be here for anyone that has nowhere to go on a holiday, weekend, bored night, etc. We are much more than a strip club. We are a place that people want to go to. We are also the best at what we do, so it will always be a phenomenal experience whether they are here on a Saturday at 8PM or on a Tuesday at 8:30AM. We want to deliver the best 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.

VL: What kind of business do you expect to do on off hours?

MG: We are finding that since we are known as the place that never closes; we are getting big crowds all day and night. We have third shifters who party after work. We have retired golfers who stop in after 18 holes. We have the post after hour’s club kids. We have it all. Also we have 5 vehicles that will drive our client’s home. We will not let them get in their cars if they are too intoxicated. We will make sure that their car is safe and that they are safe. I pay 4 guys 24 hours a day to drive people home. We will also pick them up the next day and bring them to their cars. We have really thought of everything.

VL: A lot of strip clubs have lower quality strippers during the off hours; this is definitely not true at your club. I was there on a Tuesday at 10:30AM and the girls we amazing.

MG: Thank you for noticing that! We definitely only hire the finest girls around. And being 24/7 we are able to work with all of our girls schedules, and get them the amount of hours that they want. We want this place to have a family atmosphere! We have the best girls and we treat them as partners. We don’t rip our girls off like other places. They make a lot of money and work when they want to work!

VL: I also think the stuff you do for our troops is amazing.

MG: Every member past or present of the military will never pay to get in. We also give them a free drink and lap dance. I think it is the least that we can do for their service!

Carl Burnell is a Male Stripper who recently celebrated his 30th birthday. His looks are what got him in the door as a Male Stripper, but his personality is what made him one of the most famous Male Strippers in all of California. Carl has recently started a very popular radio podcast that has generated more than double his yearly salary as a stripper. Carl now officially retired from stripping, sat down and told us about his new venture!


VL: So you were making a lot of money as a Male Stripper, why retire now?

CB: Well I am making double per year doing the podcast as I did dancing. So I want to focus all of my time on the radio show, and see where it can take me.


VL: Why not just do both? The podcast has made you a big star. You can use it to promote your Stripping.

CB: Its funny you say that, because I haven’t completely retired from the game! I do weekly appearances at strip clubs across the country. When I said that I was retired, I meant that I don’t do private Bachelorette parties and stuff like that. But these appearances are pretty big money. So between my appearances, and the advertising on my podcast, I have developed quite the little empire!


VL: Tell me how this podcast got started.

CB: I was always known for my funny personality. When I would go out and do private parties, I had the highest referral rate in company history according to my boss. My best friend hosted a weekend radio talk show, and he would always have me come on the show to talk about the business. My segments were becoming really popular, and a light came on! This was what I was meant to do. I started doing my podcast with my best friend as the co-host. He really helped me a lot when we got started. It turns out that radio is a lot harder than it looks. Those first couple of shows were rough, be the social media comments kept me wanting to do it. My followers were really supportive, and each picked out different parts of the show that made them laugh. So I instantly knew I was on to something. A lot of hard work and a few years later, my podcast has become a real business.


VL: Other podcasters are very envious of the advertising revenue that you generate. How did you go about getting so many great sponsors?

CB: I started with a lot of affiliate programs, which means that I don’t get paid unless people click on links and buy stuff. After the first 6 months where I had over 200,000 weekly listeners, I was getting between 20 and 40 thousand clicks a week to these affiliate programs. Before long, I was making thousands of dollars. I then convinced a lot of these companies to pay me a banner fee plus the affiliate rate. Now I am making a lot of money to have fun! It really is the American dream!
