"Doris close yer legs, all I smell is fish!"
We're not sure who the marketing genius was that came up with having a seafood special at Scarlett's On The Bay for their grand opening in 1988, but it seems like they should have known better than to make a strip club -- OK, "exotic lingerie" club -- smell like a fish house.
In any case, this seems to be an early outpost of the infamous Scarlett's, now in Hallandale. We can't find info on the place anywhere, and aren't sure why tonga dancing in "the most intimate and elegant restaurant and club in Florida" didn't succeed. Maybe they did and we just don't know it. Got any insight or info? Leave a comment.
