Dream Boys Bar
The Dream Boys is a strip bar situated along Aurora blvd. in Cubao beside the Betty Go Belmonte station of the LRT2 line. The place is cramped and their makeshift stage is covered with magazine collage.
The performers I saw were mostly young without any evident of gym workout in their bodies. Probably because we went on a Christmas day so most of their performers are on leave. I was surprised that their rates are more expensive than the better looking strip bars (gay bars) around the Metro.
We were charged with a Php200 entrance fee. And we were required to purchase a double drink on our first order (another Php200 for the 2 drinks). These payment requirements are pricier compared to the more notable bars I have been to - Valentino (Malate), Planet Xanadu (now in Quzon city) and Adonis.
Their performers are aggressive. They routinely go around and shove their merchandise on the patrons in echange of a tip (sige na, kahit pamasahe lang, malayo pa uuwian ko, sa Bulacan). I was a bit irritated with the uninspired transexual performers go around demanding for a tip from everyone (aggressively yelling Merry Christmas to eveyone).
When a good looking performer approached me to touch his merchandise, I willingly gave him a tip. But when a not-so-good-looking performer came up to me, asking me to play with his erect toy, I apologized and declined. He was pushy and was not willing to take a no from me. So I told him bluntly, he is not my type. He angrily banged the tissue holder on the table next to me.
Let's just say the Dream Boys is not exactly a "dream place" for me.
