From the September 2012 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:
Two building permit applications have now been filed for 2412 Wisconsin Ave., the once and likely future home of JP’s Night Club. One permit would allow the construction of interior walls, while the other would permit “new bars and stages” as well as mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and carpentry work. The building’s exterior shell was completed in 2010, more than two years after the strip club’s original home was destroyed in a fire, but it has never been occupied.
Paul Kadlick, who in May represented himself to Advisory Neighborhood Commission 3B as part of a group that had recently purchased JP’s, did not return our calls. The club’s liquor license is still in the name of the man who bought the business last year, a shadowy figure named Brian Petruska who provided a nonworking number to ABRA and whose representative, Andrew Kline, does not return our calls. (We don’t know whether JP’s licensee Brian Petruska is the same Brian Petruska who graduated from Georgetown University in 2005 and founded the Petrus Group real estate investment firm, because that guy won’t return our calls either.)
