Pandora’s strip club indicates it’s opening this afternoon

Posted by Mike on July 12th, 2011

Update July 13: From the club’s Facebook page: “Ladies and Gentlemen, Pandora’s is OPEN FOR BUSINESS! Club hours are 1pm to 230am, cover charge is $10 and $5 for a drink. Hope to see you all here!”


On its Facebook page the new strip club on Lake City Way indicates it will open this afternoon at 1 p.m., and stay open until 2:30 a.m.

In a post from around midnight, the club said “we’ll be open tomorrow.”

Pandora’s Adult Cabaret, 8914 Lake City Way N.E., was originally set to open July 6, but but was still awaiting an inspection, the club has said. That location is right on the line that splits the Maple Leaf and Wedgwood neighborhoods, and the community councils of both have written the city to say they believe the club’s permit was improperly issued. But the city refused to step in.

The sign outside the club, which used to be the Seven Seas Restaurant, is now covered in black. At 8 a.m. workers were visible inside the open door.

The club has posted several photos on its Facebook page, including one of a stage, at right.

The club has generated considerable discussion, with around 200 comments on the Maple Leaf Life and Wedgwood View neighborhood blogs and their Facebook pages.

    Good, now I won’t have to drive all the way across town for my adult entertainment. :)

    As a small business owner, I’m happy to see anyone willing to start a legal business and hire right now, regardless of whether I like the business’ practices.

    Dee, you got that right. At least they could pretend to fit into the neighborhood. Sure, we don’t have to pay attention to what is happening on the inside but the outside looks like a cell block. Not what I would have liked in that space.
