Neighbor Beefs

A Red Hook nightclub has pulled one over on its community board and the neighbors by billing itself as an upscale burlesque, then operating as a run-of-the-mill strip club. Instead of artful Gypsy Rose Lee-esque routines, we're talking poles, lap dances, soft-core porn screenings, and the requisite customers peeing on nearby stoops. We'll see how long it lasts—the DOB says it doesn't have a cabaret permit on file for the property, and the owner explicitly promised no poles when applying for the club's liquor license.
