Our Story

Venus Unveiled opened in 1999 as an exotic dancer’s dream store.

Since then we’ve grown to be known as everything dance, everything sexy.

With a history of outstanding customer service and support of the LGBTQ and Kink communities, Venus Unveiled continues to offer a respectful shopping experience to all.

Something for Everyone

We love bringing new and unique styles to the community with a goal to have shoes and attire that you can't find in department stores. Our unique collection of corsets and platform shoes are perfect for goth, fetish, exotic dancing and of course casual wear.  ...well casual may be a little different in our meaning.

Our store is always fun and full of energy.  And if you need to shop secretly just give us a call and set up an appointment.
