|The Pole Position Club|
|Game||GTA Vice City|

|Owner(s)||Tommy Vercetti (from 1986)|
|Location(s)||Ocean Beach, Vice City|
|Gang affiliation||Vercetti Gang|
|Mission appearance(s)||The Party|
The Pole Position Club is effectively the only strip club in the city accessible to the player. The club is first introduced during "The Party" when player escorts Mercedes Cortez to the club. Following "Shakedown", the club may be purchased by the player for $30,000, becoming one of the their business assets.
In addition to open stages, the Pole Position offers backroom dances by a stripper, which the player may pay by the minute ($5 every 5 game minutes. Note 5 seconds in real life equal 5 game minutes) to watch. By spending a total of $300 on the dances, or watching the dances for 5 minutes real-time, the player will complete the club's asset mission, allowing the club to earn the player $4,000 a day; the stockier backroom stripper seen in the original round of dancing is also replaced by a slimmer, more scantly-clad counterpart.
Once the club's asset mission is completed, another backroom of the club is opened. Upon entering this room, a cutscene is activated showing a more animated stripper dress in a cowgirl theme dancing to "More Bounce To The Ounce" by Zapp & Roger for Tommy. Before this room is unlocked, the room is closed, with a sign reading "No Entry - Management Only" posted on the door. The stripper in this room is rumored to be one of the twins mentioned in the game's manual. The other is a bartender in Malibu Club after that asset is bought.
- The name is a reference to the retro racing game of the same name.
- Note the patrons, the two bikers and the taxi driver in a blue suit who are not seen anywhere else in the city.
- A bleet in Grand Theft Auto V offering 50% off dances to customers in wheelchairs suggests that the Pole Position still exists in the HD rendition of Vice City.
