Parties and Very Special Events!

With three days packed full of staff training and entertainers-only seminars, two Keynote Addresses, the legal & marketing panels, and a two-day, 100-booth Tradeshow with a large Mainstage area, it’s clear that the Annual Gentlemen’s Club EXPO is about doing business. But it’s also about having a great time! As is the case each year, EXPO 2024 will be packed with evening events, parties and the Annual ED’s Awards Show, all designed to allow attendees to network, get caught up with old friends, make new friends and … PARTY!

“First Night Fandango”
Cowboys Red River Dance Hall
August 26, 2024, 8 – 11 pm

The Cowboys Red River Dance Hall is the true definition of a roadhouse honkey tonk, and will play host to the EXPO’s “First Night Fandango” (aka the Opening Night Party) on Monday, August 26, from 8-11 pm. The Burch brothers (Scott and Duncan), owners of Red River, are presenting true Texas-style hospitality by offering food and an OPEN BAR for the first hour! Ride the mechanical bull, do some line dancing, enjoy some great music or just have yourself some tequila shooters, this year’s Fandango will be unlike any opening night party attendees have ever witnessed! And speaking of that mechanical bull, give it your best shot — the guy and gal who ride that bull the longest get $500 each!

Please note that transportation will take guests to Cowboys Red River starting at 7:15 pm. 

Opening Night After-Parties
The Lodge and Baby Dolls
August 26, 2024, 11 pm – 2 am

For those who aren’t ready for the party to end, giddy on up to one (or both!) of two legendary Dallas adult clubs, The Lodge and Baby Dolls! Transportation will take you from Cowboys Red River to either of the clubs at 11 pm. If you’re coming to Dallas for EXPO, you don’t want to miss your opportunity to see these amazing venues!

The ED’s Awards Show & Reception
Gilley’s Dallas 
August 27, 2024, 9 – 11 pm (reception at The Saloon inside Gilley’s from 7-9 pm)

The Adult Nightclub & Exotic Dancer Awards Show — the ED’s Awards Show — is still the ONLY awards show in the world honoring the top adult nightclubs, club staff and feature entertainers!

On Tuesday evening, we move onto another legendary location as the renowned Gilley’s Dallas hosts the ED’s Awards Show on Tuesday, August 27. Within the walls of the historic Schepp’s Grocery Supply warehouse, using many original resources such as the existing brick walls, tin roof tiles and steel-fire doors, Gilley’s Dallas, established in 2003, is uniquely Texan and hosts concerts and private events in their seven unique facility spaces, including the South Side Ballroom and The Saloon which will be utilized for the ED’s Awards Show & Reception (sponsored by Expose in San Diego).

The 2023 ED’s Awards Show will be hosted by top comedian Shane Torres, a Fort Worth, Texas native who quickly made a name for himself when his very first comedy special — “The Blue Eyed Mexican” — became a hit in December 2023. Vulture named it a stand-up special “not to be missed,” noting that Torres has a “beautiful directness and keen sense of good storytelling and … a refreshing combination of delicate and obscene.” Shane has been seen on Conan (twice), The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, NBC’s Last Coming Standing and much more! He’s also been a special guest on “Bertcast” with Bert Kreischer, Barstool’s KFC Radio, and his own podcast, “Not Accounting For Taste” with Kyle Kinane. 

Back by popular demand: Roundtable seating! That’s right, gather with your friends in a more relaxed setting with 10-top roundtables, 4-top high-tops, or individual seats at the rail. Get your tickets right here!  

Transportation will take you to and from Gilley’s (which is less than 2 miles from the Hyatt!). And don’t miss the Official After-Party (yes, Partypus returns!), which will be held at Club VIVO in Downtown Dallas!

$10,000 Bikini Contest and Pool Party!
The Men’s Club Dallas (pool & patio)
August 28, 2024, 4 – 8 pm

Ladies, it’s time to take the “bikini contest” to the next level! You’re invited to compete for $10K in cash and prizes, courtesy of our sponsors BanQone and Fiji Water. We’ll close EXPO ‘24 with a pulse-pounding, show-stopping event that no one will want to miss: Our $10,000 Bikini Contest and Pool Party!

Yet another legendary Dallas venue, The Men’s Club, will be hosting this year’s Bikini Contest at their outdoor pool and patio. PANDA (The Professional Adult Nightclub DJ Association) will also be on hand to help host the festivities as we close out the 2024 EXPO in Dallas with one more big fiesta!

Please note: This is not a topless bikini contest; contestants must wear a bikini and cannot remove their tops (this is because Dallas has specific licensing laws that require entertainers to submit to background checks and get licensed. We cannot put the entertainers or the club at risk, so girls must remain in their bikinis!

Bikini contest sign-up will happen on-site only at 4 pm at The Men’s Club.
