I've been to a few clubs, but visiting a mate in the town this was my first visit here. It seems kind of small and there were way too many girls for the amount of guys in the club - not a bad thing, except when I get my credit card bill. Seriously, though, it was pretty intimidating to be asked by a different dancer every few minutes.
The decoration is good but because of the layout of the club there is no really great place to sit. Prices for dances are £10 fully nude and the beer is average prices (to me - but I am from London so may be wrong!). There is a DJ but don't expect him to do much as far as I could tell he spent as much time upstairs in the dancers area than he did in his booth (lucky git).
Like all clubs there was something for everyone and ST1 does not let you down in the girlie department. I don't like to sound like a pimp but two girls stood out for me. Natasha is a spikey haired brunete who does a very good dirty dance and definitely left me feeling like I wanted more, without her breaking house rules. Stella is another brunete who is more busty than Natasha but who has the most amazing eyes, if you're a fan of Jenny McCarthy then go see Stella and you won't be disappointed. She obviously practices as she gave me several great dances, which varied everytime and which I think is a nice touch.
In conclusion ST1 is an OK club: it has lots going for it but the layout and the amount of girls working in such a small club lets it down

ST1 in Stoke has opened another club about five minutes from the old club, which I understand is staying open. If you need directions ask a local or ask for directions for the Stakis Hotel which is opposite. There is a big pay and display car park next door so parking is easy. Door prices are £10, but its worth going into town and having a walk as the club nearly always has girls giving out promotional tickets, and if you get one its free to get in before 10.
The venue is decorated nicely and looks like money has been spent. The other club has a stage and a pole, but here, the stage is so small, and is by the door. If you're a fan of the free shows clubs put on, you're going to be disapointed, as you cannot see too much unless you're standing almost on the stage.
The beer prices are ok, no more than you would pay in a nightclub. I didn't count how many girls were working, but it was easily 10+, so there was a big enough choice for even the most picky of guys. The private dance area is communal like the other club (one big room), and is on a cash basis with dances being £10.
I don't like to recommend particular girls, as tastes vary, but my favourites were Mel, a blonde, who was so friendly I got smitten, and was glad when she left me alone as I would have spent all my money on her; Louise, a short spikey-haired brunette who, while not "classically good looking", is a great dancer; and Christy, who really gives value for money - I had three dances with her and she varied them every time which I thought was a nice touch.
In conclusion a upgraded version of the old club and definitly worth a visit.

ST1, Stoke. The premises are down a side street and are a little on the tatty side compared with say, the Purple Door in Leeds. Dances are 10 quid and take place in a curtained off area at one side of the club. There can be up to 8 girls, and guys, in this area at any one time, so lots of different views to be had!! I had about 10 dances with about 6 different girls, the best being a little blonde with virtually no tits but she was fully shaved and made sure you knew it!!!
I found it best to offer the girls another dance as soon as they had finished so they carried on naked and got a lot raunchier. There were a couple of girls who had driven down from Bolton, one of them Bobby was a real stunner, a little more mature than the others, well worth the visit for her alone. There are tickets available for free entry before 10pm.
