BLIND ITEM: Hedge Fund Portfolio Manager Gets Five Lap Dances Before 5 P.M.

A portfolio manager from a large hedge fund that we won’t name (yet) insisted two guys cancel their afternoon meetings one day last week so they could all go to a strip club.

The pair agreed with the PM’s request and hit the club at 3 p.m.  Of course, there wasn’t the usual strip club crowd at that time of day.  In fact, it was pretty much empty.

A spy says group imbibed on gin and tonics and vodka sodas, while strippers danced completely nude to “smooth R&B” music.

We’re told the club charged 10% fee on the credit card and gave the group a cash advance so they could tip the dancers.  Obviously, strippers don’t accept credit for lap dances.

We also hear the hedge fund PM had about five champagne room dances for about $40 a pop.

Here are some pictures taken from inside the club.
