Washington, DC

“Dear PoPville,

As I’m sure you recall, the Gentleman’s Club at 5th and K St. NW, “the Cloakroom” (formerly Louis’ Rogue) has been closed since it partially collapsed last spring. Construction activity to repair the building has been intermittent and it hasn’t been clear if it would ever reopen.

However, I saw some curious activity going on behind the mural wall separating the remainder of the building from the street. It looked like some people were shooting glamour shots of young, scantily-clad women in construction worker outfits. Photos attached – I guess this indicates that the Cloakroom is preparing some marketing for the club and is therefore planning to reopen sometime after all.

PS: Credit to the young woman who toddled down into the construction pit in very high heels to do a lying down pose on the equipment.”
