Even before they enter bar of nightclub in centre of city, patrons can hear music. regular beat, only slightly muffled, spills out onto street. Inside smoky, dimly lit space, women in tight mini-dresses and and teetering heels stand by stage where nine men play various instruments. Occasionally one woman, known as ‘waitress’ although she appears to do little waitressing, breaks into song, usually accompanied by one of male visitors to bar.
