Dance bars have been around for a long time, and as an employee in one, it is important to be aware of the laws that apply to them. In this blog post, we will discuss five of the most important laws that you need to know. Whether you are a bartender, server, or dancer, it is crucial that you understand these laws and follow them closely. Failing to do so could result in fines or even jail time. So without further ado, let’s get started!
You cannot touch a customer
This one is pretty self-explanatory, but as an employee of a dance bar, you are not allowed to touch the customers in any way. This includes hugging, shaking hands, high fives, etc. Even if the customer initiates it, you must decline politely.
The only exception to this rule is if the customer is causing a disturbance and you need to physically remove them from the premises. Other than that, hands off!
Violating this rule can result in losing your job or, in some cases, being charged with assault. So it’s definitely not worth it.
You cannot offer sexual services to customers
This is probably the most important law to know if you work in a dance bar. You cannot offer sexual services to customers, no matter how much they are willing or willing to pay. This includes lap dances, private dances, or any other type of dance that may be interpreted as sexual in nature. If you are caught offering sexual services, you could be arrested and charged with prostitution.
In addition, even if you are not offering sexual services, you should still be careful about how you are dancing. Some dances can be interpreted as sexual, even if that is not your intention.
You cannot solicit customers for sexual services
This is probably the most important law on the books when it comes to dance bars. If you are caught soliciting customers for sexual services, you can be arrested and charged with a crime. This is a serious offense that can result in jail time, so it’s important to know the law and make sure you’re not breaking it.
You cannot allow anyone under the age of 18 into the bar
The first law is that you cannot allow anyone under the age of 18 into the bar. This means that if you are working at the door, you need to check IDs to make sure that everyone who is coming in is of legal drinking age. If you see someone who looks underage, do not let them in.
You must have a permit to work in a dance bar
In order to work in a dance bar, you must have a permit from the municipality in which the business is located. This permit is obtained by the business owner and not by the individual employees. The permit ensures that the business meets all of the necessary safety and health requirements.
