The owner of Chinatown Coffee and residential neighbor of 477 H Street NW, Max Brown, has alerted us to a proposal for a Vegas-style strip club at that location (5th and H St NW) by Douglas Development.
This recently purchased property is next to several properties with school-age children including the home next door to it. The ANC is meeting tonight, Monday, February 9th at Feb 9th at 6:30 PM, at MLK Library Basement to discuss this use.
The proposed strip club owners were turned away from NYC in 2007 and only have two other venues which are located in Las Vegas and Atlantic City hotels. An article about the strip club proprietors can be read here.
A community meeting will be scheduled later this week at Chinatown Coffee to organize opposition to a strip club located next to residential uses with school-age children and in a location only blocks from another property with strip club use. In addition, a Facebook group called No Strip Club on H has been formed.
