Hi friend,

Mike came to a strip club for investing the murder case. There were twenty cars in the parking lot out front. Mike had to pay a ten-dollar cover to get past the blonde in the foyer.

Does the word in bold mean 'entrance fee' or 'service charge' or else?

Thank you.
QP

Yes, an entrance fee. It will also entitle you to something like one drink once inside, but you don't get in without paying it.

In that way, it is not technically an entrance fee, since you are buying something.
