Many bars and strip clubs in Tijuana's red light district in which women are the feature entertainment also operate as brothels, which offer attached hotel rooms for short intervals of time. Many other bars, styled "lady bars", function as less explicit social clubs where prostitutes and nude sex shows are not accommodated on site, but fichas drinks for the working ladies are offered at elevated prices, and freelance prostitutes look for clients.
These compare in most respects to the hostess bars in Japan. Illicit drug sales are also common to the red light district, which happens night and day in plain view because the local police tolerates it in the form of collecting their commission.
Heroin use and theft, not common elsewhere in Mexico, are rampant here. The district is also known as La Coahuila for the name of the primary avenue that runs through it.

In addition to established brothels, there are prostitutes who work outside on the callejones or alleys and are referred to as paraditasSpanish for "the standing girls", for their practice of standing on the street to advertise their services.
Paraditas have been regarded as part of Tijuana's cultural history, and attempts to force the women off the streets to curb such public advertising have proven unpopular and unsuccessful.
