clip joint

Definitions

Construction

Slang

  • noun originally a club or bar which employs hostesses who encourage clients to buy them (inevitably hugely overpriced) drinks in the expectation, rarely fulfilled, that their generosity would be reciprocated with sexual favours. The phrase may now be applied to any overpriced, low-quality establishment. Clip, like ‘trim’, is an old euphemism for ‘relieve someone of their money’.

Travel

  • noun a low-class club or bar, where guests are charged too much for their drinks
