There's a new strip club in town, and it comes with one of the biggest names in adult entertainment.
Vivid Live, a strip club concept by celebrity porn company Vivid Entertainment, is scheduled to open next month just outside Miami Springs. Vivid, for you pervs pretending you didn't know, is the company that distributed Kim Kardashian's sex tape, Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham's sex tape, and most recently, Weinergate, Anthony Weiner's not-so-secret lover Sydney Leathers' solo porn project.
According to a press release from Vivid, the 30,000-square-foot club sits on 2.5 acres of land near the Miami airport. It had originally planned to call itself Club WET, but its owners opted to partner with the porn giant instead.
The business plan: target upscale clientele with a $10 million investment that includes 22 VIP suites and four "extra-exclusive luxury sky suites." (We're not even asking what "extra-exclusive" benefits come with those rooms.) There'll also be a cutting edge sound system, 20-foot projector screens, and 40 plasma TVs showing sports.
Also drawing in the hornballs: Boobs. Lots and lots of boobs. The "Vivid Girls" will make regular appearances at the club, the announcement promises, along with "dozens of the most beautiful dancers from around the world."
Like any upstanding gentlemen's club, "Vivid Live takes special pride in its world-class dining room." Get ready for Churrascaria night every Thursday, "with an array of mouth-watering carved meats." And there'll be great steak, too! Ah, jokes.
The club opens with an appearance by adult star Tera Patrick on Sept. 12, which just so happens to be Thursday meat night. What luck.
