San Antonio Men’s Club offering drive-thru entertainment during coronavirus pandemic

San Antonio Men’s Club is closed per Gov. Greg Abbott’s latest order to curb the coronavirus, but found a way to continue providing adult entertainment.

Customers can experience a drive-thru option this weekend in which masked-dancers perform around each vehicle.

The club’s manager, Albert Cortez, said the drive-thru model debuted Thursday night and will be offered from 6 to 10 p.m. through Saturday.

Cortez said San Antonio Men’s Club was inspired by similar businesses throughout the nation who have found alternative ways to operate during the pandemic. A club in Portland received national attention in May for providing social distance-approved dances. Cortez believes the club is the first in San Antonio to offer the option.

“We figured we’d take a stab at it, and try to provide some entertainment for our city and try to generate some money for our staff and independent contractors who work with us during these uncertain times,” he said.

When cars drive up to the door, a staff member will take food and drink orders. As customers wait for their to-go bites and beverages, entertainers will dance around the vehicles on small stages for the duration of two songs. Once the tracks are done, guests will drive forward and receive their orders. Dancers are allowed to accept tips, Cortez said.

Cortez provided a photo that shows a tarp conceals the outdoor entertainment from public view.

He said the debut night had a “good” turnout and the team is anticipating a longer line Friday. The club is considering hosting the drive-thru on a regular basis if the shut down continues and customers are receptive.

Online promotions show entry fee is $20 per car. San Antonio Men’s Club is located at 8244 Interchange Parkway.
