I’ve been to Headlight’s Go Go Club in Elizabeth, NC a few times, and the name still makes me laugh. Other than perhaps the “Red Snapper” or ” Boobs R Us”, could you have a better name for such an adult oriented establishment. It is a fun place to see exotic dancers “do their thing,” and while not fully nude, it is topless. The ladies are required to wear g-strings, which leaves little to the imagination, and on a couple of visits I’ve gotten a slight peak behind the “gift wrapping.” This hole in the wall isn’t anything fancy, but it is not a shabby club, even though there’s really nothing but abandoned factories and a few stores surrounding it. Its close to Virginia Beach and Norfolk, VA, and worth the drive, due to the Commonfilth of Virginia requiring tassles and underwear for exotic dancers. Thankfully the short trip down south allows for a better experience.
Headlight’s is open from early evening to the late morning hours on weekdays, with longer hours on the weekends. There is a $5 cover charge, and you have to register at the front desk with a valid state driver’s license or other form of government identification. The door folks are pleasant enough, and also efficient, so you don’t have to waste a lot of time here to get to the main floor. This is of course, where the action is, and there’s a variety of seating options. You can sit on a stool right next to the stage, which is huge, or kick back at a table or one of the plush leather booths. Those are optimal for the table dances, which are only $5, and quite “riveting.”
The women here are really attractive. There have been some clubs where a lot of “trainwrecks” were on the stage, but not here. While there could be a bit more diversity, there are some blondes, brunettes, redheads, and a few African American women. I’d like to see some Asian and Hispanic dancers, but they don’t seem to be part of the entertainment here. Thankfully the ladies here know how to “strut their stuff,” and have a great sense of humor. They aren’t stuck up, and will have a lot of fun. During each night they announce a special gift for all celebrating a birthday, and you can get whipped by all the ladies on stage, which will have everyone in the audience just roaring out laughing. A friend of mine received this punishment, even though it wasn’t his birthday, but rather we threw him up on the stage. He could sit down properly for a couple of days, much to his chagrin.
The table lap dances are very good, and at the reasonable cost, they are well worth the small investment of money. At the end of every night, the professionals allow ladies visiting the establishment, to get up and strip on stage. Dollar bills are everywhere, and its a lot of fun for the locals to also get in on the act. During our last visit, one of the dancers “made out” with one of these ladies in the audience, which drove us close to being rabid. Absolutely incredible, and the beer and cocktail drinks only increased our awareness of this event.
Beer and mixed drinks are expensive. You aren’t going to get anything for less than $5, but you aren’t pressured to drink all night either. As long as you tip the ladies $1 and $5 bills on occasion, no one is going to kick you out. Its a very laid back crowd, and while it can get busy, I’ve never heard of or seen any type of altercation here. There are some beefy security guys in case it “gets out of hand,” but they just seem to like standing by the front doors. They were all pretty cool, and due to everyone getting along, haven’t seen any real action which is common at other adult type of entertainment venues. Be sure to bring some cash though, as the ATM has a $5+ surcharge, and cigarettes from the vending machine are a whopping $8!
I really like Headlights, and fully recommend it to those in North Carolina, or who are visiting from the Virginia Beach area. Its a fun place where everyone gets along, and a lot of the women dancing are college students who are simply gorgeous and fun. For the record, they are very aware of what the “shocker symbol” is all about, and had our group rolling by flashing it at us for the better part of an evening. Weekdays are not as busy, but you’ll still have to contend with some crowds. That’s okay, as everyone here just wants to have a laugh and look at beautiful women dancing on the stage. The mirrors surrounding it are a nice touch, and offer you a unique view from all parts of the club.
