aye from the observer alright:

"Despite excitable press reports of four-figure nightly earnings, table dancers are just as likely to make a loss. Because many clubs charge dancers around £70 to work a shift, on slow nights or in quieter venues they may not make this back. The going rate for a three-minute dance is £10, a percentage of which is usually paid to the venue.[35% in the case of SR]

The big money possible at clubs like Spearmint Rhino and Stringfellows is mainly through tips, which have topped £1,000. Punters also pay up to
£200 an hour for chats. The male dancers at Stringfellows do less well: it seems their conversational skills are in scant demand, with their
admirers happy just to watch."
