For several years now I have traveled to Ohio to watch the dancing boys. The state has a strong following for exotic male dancers. Each year new guys come onto the scene as veteran dancers retire. I look forward to each visit to the Buckeye state and have made many friends there. The quality of male dancer entertainment is excellent and many of them have made it into our blog features as favorites.
NOTE: This listing is based on pre-Carona virus information. The clubs listed did feature male strippers on a regular basis, some monthly, weekly or daily. We will make modifications and update this list as we are made aware of any changes that have taken place. If you are aware of closings, new openings, etc., please let us know in the comments below.
Although some clubs are opening back up, they are not yet featuring male stripper or go-go boy entertainment. Also, some clubs have opened and have had to close again due to local laws, or virus outbreaks, etc. Check with the club social media to confirm that they are open and male dancers will be present before visiting.

Phone: 614-291-4008 WEBSITE
We have been to Axis several times over the past few years. Each time we visited was on a Sunday night. We have gone there each time to see Johnny W. Dangerously who was performing there when we were in town. There has always been a fun crowd and the drinks are done right.
Pre-Carona -Male Strippers on Sunday nights. Anisa Love has moved her show to a new club in Columbus. We will update this listing as we learn more.
Boscoe’s features male strippers several nights a week. Boscoe’s was selected as the Males In Motion Favorite Club that features male dancers for 2019. Read our review of Boscoe’s and our epic night. Check their social media to see what dancers are scheduled for a specific night. We recommend you get there early and park on the street in front of the club or across the street. Our favorite place to sit is at the tables just to the right of the entrance and next to the stage. The club will get packed as it gets closer to show times. This is a good place to be when that happens. We also recommended their drag shows. Everyone is welcome at Boscoe’s, the crowd is mixed but mostly gay men. There is no cover and the drink prices are within the average for similar clubs.

Cavan Irish Pub
We popped in to Cavan Irish Pub one night and watched our male stripper friend Kit Wiley perform. We liked the neighborhood bar feel of the Pub and hope to return in the future.

O’Connors Club 20
If we’re in Columbus, OH, we will be at O’Connor’s Club 20 on Sunday evening for Show N Tail Sunday with Abortia Clinique and her male stripper show. They advertise that it starts around 6:30ish but we recommend that you get there early for a good seat because the place fills up for the show. Getting there early is a good idea for parking by the club as well. We’ve parked in several spots on side streets and walked back to the club. It’s an easy walk and in our opinion, well worth it.
Location: 20 E Duncan Street. MAP
We have never been to Southbend Tavern. I’m sure we’ll catch it on one of our trips to Ohio.
Location: 126 E Moler St. MAP
The Toolbox Saloon was the first club with male dancers in Columbus, OH for us to visit. It was several years ago and we had a lot of fun. There were 3 dancers performing that night and I distinctly remember one of them performing to the classic song “The Stroke” by Billy Squire. I’ve added it below. Watch and let your imagination run wild!
Location: 744 Frebis Avenue MAP
We’ve visited Tremont Lounge a couple of times. The dancers they feature are varied. The nights we’ve been there, the dancers were daddy and bear types. But I have seen ads posted on social media where they have featured other types as well.

Featured Male Dancers:
Johnny W. Dangerously
Johnny is one of our favorite all-time male strippers. We have had the pleasure of watching him perform in several different venues. He has been featured in the Males In Motion blogs an social media posts more than any other male dancer. We recommend that you go to a Johnny W. Dangerously performance for your personal pleasure.
Grayson L Knight-Lites
We have been a fan of Grayson for several years. We have watched him perform in person several times in the Columbus area. He is known for his fantasy costumes. There is much entertainment value when it involves Grayson. We recommend that you start with his Twitter account and go from there.
I recommend Ohio, and especially Columbus as a destination city for enjoying exotic male dancers. While in the city try to hit It as many clubs that feature male dancers, as you can. There is a variety of different venues and I’m sure you’ll find one that best fits your enjoyment. If you see Johnny W. Dangerously or Grayson L. Knight-Lites, tip them a dollar for us and say Males In Motion recommended them to you. Most importantly, have fun!
If you know of any other bars or clubs in Ohio that feature male strippers or go-go boys, please tell us In the comments below. Thanks.
