Hostesses ‘plied with booze’ at Presidents Club dinners

A FORMER hostess at the Presidents Club men-only dinner said she and her female colleagues were “plied with alcohol” and treated like escorts.

The 26-year-old, who worked at the event in 2016, said she saw men “touching up” women who were young enough to be their daughters.

“When you walked into that ballroom, you fully realised it wasn’t a case of being a hostess. It was essentially escorting and it wasn’t billed as that, but that’s essentially what it was”, she added.

“Most of the men there were late forties or older and I remember looking at their hands and going: ‘Oh wow, you’re all married.’”

Hostesses were paid £130 to work from 4pm to midnight and those who wore red belts so that the men “knew they were more up for it” were paid “extra” if they agreed to stay until 3am, she said.

The Presidents Club, the charity behind the dinners at the Dorchester Hotel, has said it is to disband after two undercover journalists exposed the scandal.

I worked undercover as a lap dancer – the Presidents Club is the tip of the iceberg. There were businessmen, sales directors and – creepily – a gynaecologist. The men were not ambiguous about what they wanted. One asked me specifically, ‘how much for a f***?’ Here.
