Since its founding in 1996, The Lodge has set the national standard for elegance, beauty, class and integrity. The Lodge continues to win local, regional and national awards, including 'America’s Best Strip Club,' 'Number 1 Strip Club in Texas' and 'Best Men’s Club in Dallas.' A beautiful establishment to wine, dine and entertain, The Lodge offers an opportunity for networking and indulging clients as it brings together corporate executives, professionals and business owners from all areas and fields.
Our female dancers include professional models, aspiring actresses, feature exotic entertainers from other clubs as well as college and graduate students. All dancers are independent contractors that set their own schedules and entertainment fees.
Dawn Rizos is the owner and CEO of our renowned Dallas club. “We opened The Lodge with a vision of how this business should be. Our desire has always been to provide a beautiful, sophisticated club where customers are proud to visit, and where men and women are proud to work. At The Lodge, we bring class and integrity with the intent of having a positive effect on our industry.”
Although winning awards wasn’t the top priority, recognition for The Lodge and Dawn Rizos’ management came quickly. The Lodge has received many local, regional and national awards for atmosphere, service and cuisine; praise from distinguished media sources ranging from USA Today to Howard Stern to GQ Magazine; books, films and TV shows invoking The Lodge and filming on location, including Chuck Norris’ famed TV series Walker Texas Ranger, Showtime’s Paul Mooney: It’s the End of the World! as well as Key & Peele's cinema introduction to their recent movie Keanu.
Dawn has personally received several honors over the years including 'Industry Innovator of the Year' at the Gentlemen’s Club Owners Expo in Las Vegas and 'America’s Best Overall Club,' the industry’s top honor. “It’s a wonderful tribute to all the great people who dedicate themselves to making The Lodge so unique. We have a lot of fun here, but we also have serious goals, and we keep both those things in mind every day.” That success is evident from the first moment of a visit to The Lodge, which is located near a busy highway in Northwest Dallas near DFW Airport.
As much as she appreciates the national recognition, Dawn receives far more satisfaction as a hands-on CEO, helping young women support families, put themselves through school and use their years at The Lodge as a springboard to the rest of their lives. Dawn believes in setting high aspirations for these ladies. “We set a standard that our women be interesting, intelligent, good conversationalists, as well as beautiful. Our customers want great entertainment and good company for an hour or an evening, not just a dance or two, and that’s what we deliver.”
While the minimum age to experience The Lodge is 21, there is no maximum age and many of our patrons are over 40. While most of our guests are men, The Lodge is couples friendly and welcomes women as well.
