From an email:

“If you have ever dreamed of investing in a nude dancing club, now is the time. A DC nude dancing license in conjunction with a pre-approved 30,000 SF site in the recently redeveloped Hecht warehouse district [2046 West Virginia Ave, NE] is just waiting for someone to step in and open the newest club in DC.

The moratorium on nude dancing licenses in DC makes the opportunity to open a club like this few and far between. The license combined with the huge pre-approved location, redevelopment of the area surrounding the site on West Virginia Ave in NE, and the impending opening of the casino at the National Harbor provides the perfect storm of opportunity for someone to step in and become DC’s newest club mogul.

Since the closing of Nexus Gold Club in 2006 there has been a gap in the market for a large, upscale nude dancing club that caters to the conventioneers, tourists, and heavy hitters in the DMV.

Someone is going to seize this opportunity, but who? Rasmus is doing a private treaty sale for the combined license and location.”

    That location is nowhere near National Harbor. Worst correlation ever!

    • Philippe Lecheval

      And there aren’t a lot of tourists or conventioneers out there, either.

    • textdoc

      Yeah, I was thinking the same thing!

  • a

    Why doesn’t Atlas get in on this? I see some synergies!

  • Joaquin Pheonix

    Tits n Brews – I called it first! Every Sunday is Sinful Sunday(tm).

    • sproc

      Kegs ‘n Legs rolls off the tongue much better.

      • Claytron

        Beers and Leers?

      • KenyonDweller

        Boobies & Brewskis.

        • dc_mike

          Why does it have to be a straight strip club? Drafts and Shafts wins hands down (if you will)

          • KenyonDweller

            Suds & Studs.

  • Kingman Park

    Stadium Club might have some competition. Let the ratchet Olympics commence!

  • anonymous

    Are they trying to turn this stretch into a red light district? I wish they would shut down the existing “go to have sex” place that’s in the next building over.

    • The OP Anon

      People are boning in Atlas? News to me!

  • Great Idea

    How about this…

    Bottomless Topless Tapas?

    • textdoc

      With artisanal, locally sourced nude dancers?

      • sproc

        Somebody funner than me please, please turn this into a Stefon pitch!

    On a sort of related note – is Royal Palace (Connecticut & Florida) closing? I saw a for lease sign, I’m not sure if that was for the upstairs, but it was above the RP door.

  • baz

    i give them three dollas and forty too cents for dat license!!

    seriously, nobody makes money on strip clubs anymore.

  • NW_Sammy

    Wait, is this the nude, gay bath house?

    Reminds me of this quote from Wedding Crashers: “Soft mattress? Maybe, or it could have been the midnight rape, or the nude gay art show.”

  • spookiness

    Why? Are patrons parking on your property? Is there a building code violation that threatens the safety of the public? Does the establishment impact the neighborhood in a way that is disproportionately different than other businesses? Who is the “they” you reference twice?
