Nightclub gets go ahead to have strippers

/ / News, Uncategorized

THINGS are heating up at MIePLACE. The Gladstone nightclub has been approved for an adult entertainment permit and expects to offer adult entertainment by the end of the month.

The two-level club will have female strippers upstairs and topless waitresses downstairs.

Club owner Aodhan McCann expects to have eight female strippers and possibly male strippers.

“The reason I applied for both upstairs and downstairs was so that if we have a male show, that can be held downstairs,” he said.

Mr McCann has waited for approval for six months.

Objections on the basis of moral grounds were made by Gladstone residents.

The Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation received three objections and one petition, containing 11 signatures.

“If you can drive past and see anything – you will be doing very well,” Mr McCann said.

“By law I can’t allow anyone to see anything outside the venue, and there will be no external advertising saying there will be a strip club inside.”
