Three years after abandoning his life as a stripper, Mike (Channing Tatum) is running his own furniture business. He receives a call from Tarzan (Kevin Nash) who informs Mike that Dallas is “gone”. Believing that his former boss has died, Mike drives to a hotel only to find that his friends, the remaining Kings of Tampa, are enjoying themselves at a pool party. After revealing that Dallas has bailed on them to start a new show in Macau and only took “The Kid” with him, the Kings let Mike in on their plan: to end their careers on a high note by traveling to Myrtle Beach for a stripping convention. Later, while trying to work, Mike overhears a song he used to strip to and dances. Reinvigorated, Mike decides to join them on their trip.
Driving in a fro-yo van owned by Tito (Adam Rodríguez) and Tobias (Gabriel Iglesias), they decide to make their first stop at Mad Mary’s. To prove to Richie (Joe Manganiello) that he’s willing to commit to the trip, Mike participates in an amateur queen contest. The others join him soon after. They then head down to a beach where Mike attempts to resolve his issues with Ken (Matt Bomer). The two later reconcile. Mike also meets a photographer named Zoe (Amber Heard) who tells him that she’s headed for New York. They flirt but Mike decides not to pursue her.
Back on the road, Mike suggests that they change their routine. They stop at a gas station where he coerces Richie into trying to make the cashier (Lindsey Moser) smile with an improvised striptease which he successfully does. This inspires the others to abandon their old routines. Soon afterwards, Tobias, under the influence of MDMA, passes out while driving and crashes the van. Everyone is left unscathed aside from Tobias who gets a concussion. In the hospital the group begins to lose morale, and contemplate packing up and heading home. Mike then reveals that his furniture business isn’t going that well, and that he’s no longer dating Brooke after she rejected his marriage proposal. The group decides to continue on.
In search of a new emcee, Mike brings the group to a Savannah strip club owned by Rome (Jada Pinkett Smith) whom Mike has a history with. Despite proving to her that his skills haven’t deteriorated, he’s unsuccessful in getting her to help them. However, she does give them a ride to their next stop by having Andre (Donald Glover), a rapper/singer who works at the club, drive them there.
