El Paso’s Funny Trend: Strip Clubs Turning into Formal Establishments
El Paso has a brand new Starbucks and according to Monika over at our sister station, Kiss, it has the best views of the sunset. However, it wasn't too long ago that it had a different type of view!
The new Starbucks is located where the old Prince Machiavelli used to be- which is hilarious. I'm sure many El Pasoans remember it; and I still maintain that they should have kept the castle motif for the new Starbucks- but I digress.
Funny as it may seem, the new Starbucks isn't the only establishment to replace one of El Paso's iconic strip clubs.
Recently, another of El Paso's famous strip clubs became a wildly different establishment: the Lamplighter turned into a church! So, if the featured image looked a little familiar to you- you are naughty!
The Lamplighter Lounge on Montana was around for many years before closing down. It was vacant and then suddenly, it became a place of worship- except many will be worshipping God this time, and not some woman name Diamond.
I want to know what's next? What will Foxy's turn into next? The building is for sale- could it be the next Peter Piper Pizza? It does seem big enough for a play place.
What about the Naked Harem? That place has been vacant for far too long!
If anything, I'm amazed that none of these places have been turned into a Spirit Halloween store. But I am intrigued to see what will become of these establishments.
