Strip House is quite the fun experience thanks to the seductive black and white photos from Studio Manasse, which feature Viennese women from the early 1900s, and the seductively-clad cocktail servers. With all the eye candy, you might wonder: Who looks at the steak? Well, plenty of people look, and even more people devour! If you’d like to know what to wear, where to sit and how to maximize the pleasure of your dining experience before joining them, please read on.
Reservations can be made by either by calling the restaurant or online via OpenTable.
Seating is more than comfortable, as chairs are 16 inches wide and banquettes are made of comfortable tufted red leather. You can sit at one of the corner banquettes, at one of the banquettes along the wall or in free-standing armless chairs that are made of leather and wood with curvilinear backs. If one of those isn’t to your fancy, there are upholstered higher-backed chairs in the lounge and high-backed red leather chairs at the bar. Otherwise, you can eat at the Steak Bar, which has chairs similar to those in the bar. Tables are generously spaced and at 36 inches wide have more than enough room for all the side dishes you might order.
The atmosphere at Strip House is sexy with a slight wink, so to speak. The vibe is fun and casual and doesn’t take itself too seriously, although the cuisine is extremely serious -- as in seriously delicious! The room is mood-lit in shades of red with a play on the restaurant’s bordello theme. Photographs on the wall feature tasteful retouched erotic noir images courtesy of Studio Manasse. Every night is a playful event at Strip House. It’s not the place for a quiet meal for two, as music adds to the restaurant’s vibrant mood; if you want to celebrate, however, have fun and see a little fun in the form of burlesque imagery and romantically-clad cocktail servers -- all while dining on succulent steaks -- then this is your place. Our server, Robbie, was exceptional and let us know all the ins and outs of the menu, plus gave us seamless service, never interrupting our conversation. He allowed us to linger, too, as we never felt rushed during our evening.
The restrooms at Strip House are located inside the restaurant and offer same-level access.
