should this be in off topic?
anyway, for those that care, the following (after the ****) is copied from a yahoo group dedicated to the london strip pub scene and mentions most currently active pubs. I didn't write it, and hardly ever visit the group any more because although it was very vibrant some years ago this group now appears to be virtually dead. Google should provide the address of any that catch your fancy. My recollections of the Axe, although several years out of date, were that is used to have the ropiest flea bitten (literally in at least one case - though it may have been scabies I suppose) lasses on (although the odd gem) but also provided the raunchiest dances of the licensed venues, but the old bill got wind and it was forced to introduce cctv to monitor how naughty the girls were being. No idea what happens there currently.

I was in London last month on my now annual trip to the UK where I managed to visit the following pubs...
The Flying Scotsman, I never much cared for this pub, there were 6 or 7 girls performing, 2 or 3 were ok, the others were not really worth the £1, my least favorite venue.
Nags Head, someone has taken the Stones song 'Paint it Black' too literally, they do have some good looking girls though.
The Griffin, I like the way they have remodeled this venue, I was there on a Sat night and it was the busiest venue I attended, Derek was in good form.
Ye Olde Axe think it was £3 to get in, I was there on a Mon early evening the girls 12 or so outnumbered the customers, most of them were doing their best to tout for a private dance, I think the place is worth a visit.
Browns, as per The Griffin I like the way it has been redone, this pub is though probably the least changed of all London venues, some good looking girls (there did not appear to be too many plastic tits on display) doing fairly routine stage dances.
Horns was there Mon night it was very quite, about 6 customers.
White Horse - this is still a popular venue, I managed to get myself one of the perve' seats by the stage, possibly the best of the central pubs.
Royal Standard - it's £2 to gain access to the strip bar, I was there about 6pm there were 4 girls one for each customer, I have always had a liking for good looking girls in a rather grotty pub, and this venue is the best example.
Finally as my favorite workaround venue The Victoria has fallen on it's hypodermic I ventured out of town to try and get my 'fix' so I visited J9 (previously Wagon & Horses) £5! to get in there were 4 girls, I think all of them said it was the only place they worked, again this has been 'tarted up' since my previous visit some years back, the girls were good and it was a proper workaround venue, but there were only 5 customers, a good pub but not in any sense convenient.
I did not make it to Metropolis, possibly in 2015?
The scene is nothing like it's heyday in the early 90's, but there are still some good looking females on show for a pound in the jug, what's not to like.
