Nude ‘juice bar’ in US struggling to stay open
New York: A strip club in the US, which is called ‘juice bar’ because it does not sell booze, is at the centre of a long-running legal battle.
Club 35, where the entertainers are all nude, offers a range of beverages — soda or juice for 5 dollars and Red Bull for 7 dollars — and patrons over 21 can bring their own booze.
The New Jersey borough wants to shut down the X-rated joint in Sayreville, and argues it would not be a hardship because customers could take the Outerbridge Crossing to jiggle joints in Staten Island.
The New Jersey Supreme Court issued a 5-1 ruling this week that the “not in my state” argument was valid. The Club 35’s lawyer vows to appeal all the way to the Supreme Court, but no one at the club Friday seemed too worked up about the decision, New York Daily News reported.
“I don`t think they’ll close. They’ve been trying to since it started,” said Tara, a voluptuous brunette offering five-minute lap dances for 20 dollars.
“Nobody is forcing anybody here,” Tara added.
