A Melbourne strip club where the body of an English table-top dancer was found has spoken out about her death.

Stacey Tierney's body was found at Dreams Gentlemen's Club in Melbourne's CBD on December 19.

"The owners, staff and management of Dreams Gentlemen's Club extend their sincere sympathies and condolences to the family and friends of Stacey Tierney, who recently passed away," management said in a statement on Wednesday.

The club said it would not many any further comment until the police investigation into the 29-year-old's death has concluded.

"We will continue to co-operate with and assist Victoria Police with their ongoing investigation into the circumstances surrounding Stacey's death," they said.

The circumstances surrounding the Englishwoman's death are yet to be determined, and Victoria Police say the coroner will investigate the cause.

Police revealed they were investigating her death on Tuesday, and the club has increasingly come under fire from exotic dancers who knew Ms Tierney.

News Corp reports Ms Tierney had been partying at the closed club with several men on Sunday, December 18.

The men reportedly left the club before her body was discovered 12 hours later, just before midday on Monday.

The club was open for Sexy Poker Tuesdays the day after Ms Tierney's body was found.

Ms Tierney's supporters have criticised the club's actions in the wake of her death, and say the club has been deleting people's comments from its Facebook page.

"What happened to Stacey Tierney?" one woman wrote on Wednesday.

"You probably should close down the venue for a week or so out of respect."

A fitness instructor from Manchester, Ms Tierney had reportedly been travelling in Australia for three years and worked in several venues across the country before her death.
