Lap dancing club Elegance currently based in Granada Road seeks to move into the former Southsea Conservative Club in an attempt to attract more customers.

Paul Oija, director of Lap dancing club Elegance and owner of Wiggle strip club in Surrey Street, said the move would enable the club to move out of a residential area into one that is more commercial and that now is “the right time” to make that change.
