So The Lion's Den is now known as "Kittens". (ironic) I guess this could be a good club if you are trying to get your feet wet in the industry, but keep in mind this place has a nickname as "The Litter Box" and I will definitely say they live up to that standard. It is a SLOW club. I'm used to pulling in $500+ on a slow night. A "busy" weekend night at this club only really pulls in about $250 if you have a good hustle. You may be able to pull $500 if you do a double on a Saturday... and again. That's if you pull a really good hustle. The house fee is $40 and if you work a double it's $70. You have to make a schedule with them a week in advance, and if you miss a day on your schedule you will still owe them the house fee. No exceptions. If you can't make your house fee while you are there they will add it to your next shift. Day shift is 2- 7:30 and night is 7:30 - 1am, they are a fan of closing early though. So make the night shift 7:30 to like... midnightish. Day shift is always dead. Even on weekends. People might come in around 3 - 3:30 but they are by no means big spenders. Majority of their customers are locals who spend their time in the cheap seats or at the bar. Basically not at the rack. They are closed on Sundays which is unfortunate. Honestly, it's just always slow here. So don't show up expecting to bank big bucks. Don't plan on leaving early unless you want to pay for it. Go ahead and add $15 to your house fee. Hah. They don't have any tip outs but a lot of the girls will tip out the DJs. They are always willing to play songs of your choosing and they're all nice. The bartenders are ok... they are kind of the only real "management" that's ever around. The actual owners are very absent and you'll probably never meet them. I never did. Overall... even if you are just starting, try checking other options. This place is not busy and I don't see it being around much longer. If you are an experienced dancer, don't waste your time.

Additional Information
The Lion's Den is now called Kittens and has been under new ownership for a little more than a year, I believe. They DO have a partial liquor license now, whereas it was just a juice bar before. However, it seems like they have not been able to get the word out and people stay away because they think there is no alcohol there. This club is SLOW. The club is completely empty more often than not. The club opens at 2 but it's very common not to start rotation until 3-3:30 PM since there is not a single person there. Half the customers who do come in are the type who claim to be "good friends of the owner" and won't spend a dime. I worked there for two months and did much better on day shifts than night shifts. It's really quite a frustrating place to work for a few reasons. First, VIP dances are all over the place. It's hard to sell air dances, period, but sometimes you can give light contact and management turns a blind eye and sometimes the bouncer will rush in and yell at you for breaking the 3-foot rule by an inch. As a result, custies don't know what to expect and won't buy dances. They don't tip onstage either because they are used to bored girls giving them lots of free attention and conversation and don't expect to pay for it. When you consider the fact that they offer free cover when it's slow (which is almost always) combined with the heavily advertised "free soup bar," you get a lot of freeloaders. In fairness, I worked there for two months during the winter and a lot of girls said it gets packed in the summer since the club is right on Salisbury Beach, but this is a place where girls would be literally be ecstatic to hit $200 on a Friday night, so I took such statements with a grain of salt and didn't waste any more of my time there. There are a few positives to this club. The girls are GREAT. Very down-to-earth, friendly, and low-drama. Tip-out is a flat fee of $35 per shift which covers everything, so there's no worry about stiffing anyone. Shifts run 2-7:30 and 7:30-1. Amateur night is on Wednesdays. They only award first prize, which is $100, NOT $500 as the website states. I was pretty disappointed when I won and collected 1/5 of what I thought I was getting. If you want a job just show up at amateur night - you don't have to win to be hired.
