A REVIEW OF PRINCES OF THE NIGHT
When someone mentions ‘strippers’, the words ‘class’ and ‘comedy’ aren’t usually what come to mind. But to our pleasant surprise, this is exactly what we got when we went to the Princes of the Night show at Crown Casino in Melbourne.
A striptease with a story-line, the talented cast had the entire room engaged from the moment they hit the stage. Without giving too much away, it was their choreographed dances, unexpected humour, moves that I thought only pro gymnasts could pull off and, of course, semi-naked appearances that made up most of the performance.
But funnily enough, it wasn’t the men who made the biggest impression of the night. It was Miss Juliette, the ‘Mistress of Ceremonies’. Quick witted and very entertaining, she had us in tears of laughter throughout the whole show. In fact, the thought of her mischievous banter still makes us giggle!
To top it all off, the staff were extremely welcoming, as were the ‘Princes’ themselves. It wasn’t unusual for one of the team to stop for a chat, a laugh, a photo op, or even a bit of a dance if they had the time! Such friendliness really set the tone for the whole experience, helping to create a fun atmosphere from the get go.
Overall, Princes of the Night provided a lively and safe environment that allowed everyone to let their hair down; It wasn’t what many would assume a night at the strippers would be. In our opinion, the Princes lived up to their claim of being ‘the perfect balance of class, sex appeal, comedy and naughtiness’; and because of this, I definitely recommend that you consider it if you’re planning a hen party – especially if you’re after a cheeky activity that a range of ages and personalities can enjoy!
GOOD TO KNOW
LGBTQ FRIENDLY EXPERIENCE
A great activity for hen parties and same-sex couples celebrating their upcoming nuptials (in fact, another highlight of the night was seeing a gay couple, on their combined bucks night, up on stage together – they stole the show!)
DANCE & MINGLE AFTER THE SHOW
Following the performance, the venue turns into a night club - meaning you don't have to physically leave the building to continue the party (honestly, the music is worth sticking around for! The DJ absolutely nailed the 'girl's night out' tunes)
Tickets include free VIP entry into Crown Casino nightclubs on level three after the show
FUN PACKAGES (PUN INTENDED!) AVAILABLE
A range of exciting dinner and show packages are available on request.
INCORPORATING PRINCES OF THE NIGHT INTO YOUR BEST FRIEND'S SPECIAL DAY
Love the idea of a cheeky night out and looking for ways to incorporate the Princes themselves into your best friend’s hen party? See below for some inspiration (just keep in mind that these ideas are to help get your planning started, and it’s a great idea to add some of your own special touches as well!):
START THE NIGHT RIGHT
Start the night off right by devouring some delicious food and beverages in one of Melbourne’s beautiful restaurants. Whether you decide to dine inner city, on Southbank, or in Crown itself there are SO many options when it comes to filling those stomachs (you could even play some cheeky games whilst waiting for your food to arrive)! Once you’re well fed and hydrated (cocktails, anyone?!), hit up the Princes of the Night performance.
Hire a hotel room and ask all of your guests to meet there at a particular time. You can then indulge in some food, drinks and cheeky games before heading on over to Crown ready to rock your naughty night out!
PURCHASE A PACKAGE
Purchase a Princes of the Night package that includes dinner and a show. Once again, have a few games up your sleeve to play whilst eating – they make for great ice-breakers and hilarious memories!
Following the performance, you can continue the party in one of the nightclubs on level three at Crown (as you get free VIP entry), or at a venue around the CBD!
MAKE A WEEKEND OUT OF IT
Combine it all! Make a weekend out of it – hire a beautiful room at Crown and enjoy all that Melbourne has to offer. Bars, restaurants, photo booths, clubs, cafes, parks, the Casino, and of course, the Princes of the Night show!
