Tampa's well-deserved reputation as a strip club mecca is no doubt helped by the out of this world landmark known as 2001 Odyssey. The adult strip club is recognizable by its spaceship exterior (in reality, an old model house from the kitschy past). Part of an area of strip clubs known as the Bermuda Triangle on Dale Mabry, the Odyssey features private rooms, champagne rooms and VIP rooms. Beyond that, we can only say this is the place that the NFL warns its players about whenever the Super Bowl is in town because of its lap dancing policy. Consider yourself on notice.
