    hostess, night club's's waitress?

    Does "hostess" have the meaning of a "geisha" in a night club in North America?
    A dicitionary has such a definition, so I wondered if it's correct or not.
    I haven't seen or heard of such people in Canada, but there are many such peple in Asia, who pour alcohol into customers' cups, talking and singing at bars.

    A "hostess" in a restaurant is the person who escorts you to your table. I am not aware of any "geisha" type of service in the US at bars or clubs.

    It's in naver, a Korean online dictionary, in the definition 2. I
    http://endic.naver.com/enkrEntry.nhn...&query=hostess

    t's a regret that the description is in Korean. It explains that it's entertaining girls at a night club. Maybe my translation is wrong, it's not geisha but entertaining girls like in this link. Who are these people?
