‘Shrewsbury’s answer to Spearmint Rhino’ lap-dancing club opens

‘Shrewsbury’s  lap-dancing club opens its doors

 We have been informed that a lap-dancing club in Shropshire would open its doors for the first time next month at Baker Street. The manager of Source Bar Mike Page made a promising statement he would open ‘Shrewsbury’s answer to Spearmint Rhino’ after gaining council’s approval.

The club has applied to Shropshire Council’s for a permission to host more lap-dancing evenings, from 9pm to 3am on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. The venue has already been given a permission to run lap-dancing evenings on Thursdays.

The club already had a licence to run lap dancing evenings on Thursdays.

Mr Page said they were thrilled to have gained permission.

He said: “We are delighted with today’s outcome. Shropshire’s only lap dancing venue will be opening on February 11 which is a Valentine’s weekend.

“The venue entrance will be situated between KFC and Source Bar and it will be known as ‘The Gentleman’s Club.”

“It will not affect the current Source Bar, which will continue to operate as a normal bar being completely separate to the lap dancing business.”

He added: “The Gentleman’s Club will be a premium venue offering premium ladies and premium drinks for both elite male and female customers. This will be Shrewsbury’s answer to Spearmint Rhino.”

Chelt Fems feminist group objects to license renewal for Fantasy lap-dancing club in Cheltenham

Fantasy lap-dancing club applied for their license renewal. However, the application has been objected to by a feminist group, inadequately relating the existence of an adult entertainment venue to the sexual harassment that women are experiencing when walking on the streets: “effectively women in the area will be kept under curfew, with the rights of lecherous men prioritized above our right to walk as we like free from harassment.”

The application has been lodged with Cheltenham Borough Council in the name of a club called Fantasy by Massimo Salatino, who runs a club of the same name in Swindon.

Unfortunately, the application has been rejected by the ward councillor.

Councillor Garth Barnes has opposed to the club to be given its licence two years ago, stating that it is inappropriate to have an adult entertainment venue in a residential area.

Bournemouth lap dancing club bids for outdoor seating and VIP private booths

A lap-dancing club in Bournemouth town center has applied for permission to erect outdoor seating just yards from the pavement and install private VIP booths inside.

The refit of the premises would allow customers to consume alcohol until 11pm on part of the premises visible and within earshot of Old Christchurch Road and Lorne Park Road.

The proposal was submitted before the council’s licensing board chairman, Cllr Andrew Morgan, suggested during a meeting that strip bars could be banished from the borough or moved to “some sort of industrial estate”.

There was only one formal complaint about the changes made by a resident, made on the grounds that they could potentially cause “public nuisance”.

Wiggle’s solicitor, Caroline Morgan, opposed to the complainant explaining that the club is subject to “a whole raft of restrictive conditions” because of its licensing status as a sexual entertainment venue.

“To our knowledge, Wiggle has no history of crime and disorder problems,” she said.

“Measures to be adopted for the external area include full CCTV monitoring. CCTV is a tool used as a matter of course throughout operating hours due to the need to monitor the sexual entertainment taking place and the associated customer behaviour.

“My client is an experienced operator and takes these obligations extremely seriously.”

Ms Morgan added that the premises are “set away from the public highway” and that door supervisors would monitor the outside areas.

“The principal attraction for the majority of customers is the entertainment, which takes place indoors,” she said. “It is likely that there will be a more limited use of the external facilities than at, say, a public house or casual drinking/dining venue with a beer garden”.

The club is also seeking permission to install a new “VIP area” on the first floor containing CCTV-monitored private booths separated by “lightweight curtains”.
