Debauchery and sex take center stage at the Emerson Theater, where the outfits of the female customer base are far more scandalous than those of the paid burlesque dancers. Painted-on dresses that terminate at the upper reaches of the thigh, sparkly stripper heels, garter belts and necklines that plunge to the point of no return define the general look for women, while men opt for dressed-down suits or jeans with velvet jackets.
Plush bottle-service booths and tables are situated arena style around the sunken dance floor, and every now and again a line of female employees wearing costumes plucked from the pages of a Frederick’s of Hollywood catalog parade to the tables with pricey bottles of illuminated booze. Cameras flash and a wave of Facebook status updates washes across the sweaty room as confetti drops from the ceiling and two towering jets of smoke erupt on either side of the DJ booth.
The space is designed to resemble a Prohibition-era burlesque club with lots of elaborate gold trim and wrought-iron railings. Long strips of vintage-style Edison bulbs with LED capabilities line the ceiling and provide a constantly shifting light show.
