The Floppy Rooster 7018 NW 72nd Av ( Palmetto Expressway at NW 74th St exit ) Miami, FL 33166 786-766-0778 Open Thu- Sun 9PM to 5AM www.floppyrooster.com At loose ends on a Thursday night in Miami, I ventured out to the deep dark western edge of Miami to see if The Floppy Rooster was worth the effort. With no reviews to speak of, I set my sights fairly low, but was VERY pleasantly surprised. Since I was at a hockey game in Sunrise, it took about 15 mins to get to the location, in the industrial section west of the airport. Probably 25/30 mins from Fort Lauderdale in the evening traffic, about the same from the Beach. Free parking. Cover $5 early, $10 later, drinks priced about average, good quality, not weak. On this Thursday night, a lone bartender with occasional backup handled a crowd of 40 to 90 people, a mixed group 3/4 guys, 1/4 gals. A mix of young and more seasoned spectators, this 50 year old tourist did not feel out of place. As this was an "anniversary celebration" weekend, there was a headliner "porn star" of which I had never heard, but he was the only performer who didn't get full nude that night- all the regular dancers dropped briefs, and almost all had a hardon at some time during their performance. Most of the guys were VERY well endowed and not shy to show it. A varied mix of sizes and body types- the typical Miami Cuban- Puerto Rican - Colombians were in force, some African-American, some dark Anglos, but one thing in common was each had a fine bubblebutt! Not a skinny behind in the bunch! The dancing quality varied from "shake da booty" to very difficult acrobatics on the pole, no disappointments from any of the guys. Club layout is cozy, a large stage in the center of the smallish room, VIP niches on one side, some chairs and table scattered on the sides but the bar is quite close to the front of the stage, so getting a drink can be a challenge if every one is in front watching. I stayed to the left of the bar and had no issues viewing the action. Buying a wristband gets you access to the $20 per song lapdance area (separate from the main room but not private,) and $120 gets a private room for 15 mins. The dancers seemed very willing to go private, and more than one charmed the ducats out of my sweaty hands. A brass pole at each end of the stage allows two guys to work at the same time, some of the guys did solos. I wholeheartedly recommend the Rooster, especially if you cannot or will not make the trip up to Pompano for the new Richard's location.
