The Lusty Leopard
The Lusty Leopard is a strip club located in New York City. The entire gang have visited the Lusty Leopard at least once. However, of the five, Barney is the most frequent visitor. The gang can be seen here in multiple episodes.
- Jasmine a.k.a Stripper Lily
- Quinn Garvey a.k.a. Karma (resigned then re-applied)
- Destiny (resigned)
- Treasure (unknown if she strips here or not)
Barney tries convincing Ted to accompany him to the Lusty Leopard for Thanksgiving. Ted refuses, but after he inadvertently gets Barney fired from his community service job, he and Robin accompany Barney to the Lusty Leopard. He meets a stripper named Tracy there that night, which Future Ted jokingly tells his kids is the mother.
Barney takes Marshall to the Lusty Leopard, leading to the discovery of the third doppelganger, Stripper Lily.
They bring Lily and Robin there to see the doppelganger, where Marshall is surprised to learn Lily doesn't disapprove of him visiting strip clubs, and Barney is surprised to learn that Robin doesn't approve.
Since Double Date, Barney and Marshall seem to frequently go to the club together more often. Marshall sees a girl that makes him not want to name his daughter Esther. He also imagines having a daughter who would end up working there.
Barney takes Robin, Ted and Kevin to the Lusty Leopard to forget about Marshall and Lily.
Barney's new love interest, Quinn, is shown to be an employee at the club under the stage name Karma.
Barney decides to pursue Quinn, despite discovering she works as a stripper. Barney tries to ask her out on a second date, and although she appears interested, she continually avoids answering and only wishes to hang out at the strip club; she always claims her boss is watching, and requests more money to make it appear like she’s working.
- The Stamp Tramp (mentioned)
Quinn is back stripping at the Lusty Leopard after her breakup with Barney; the episode's subplot focuses on Barney trying to find a new strip club, and shows several of the managers and strippers from the Lusty Leopard trying to convince Barney to stay there.
- The name may likely come from Dante's Divine Comedy, which is referenced in at least one other episode when Ted recites it in Italian in Robots Versus Wrestlers. In the story, Dante wanders off the path and encounters three beasts, one of which is a leopard that represents lust.
