JP’s strip club is one step closer to reopening. Yesterday, the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs issued a permit to construct walls and stages inside 2412 Wisconsin Ave. The building shell is a replacement for the club’s original home, which was destroyed in a January 2008 fire.
According to notes on the building permit, the new interior will include two performance stages; three tabletop platforms upon which dancers may also perform; and two “cubicle-style” booths, each of which will accommodate one or two “VIP customers” plus a dancer on the table. “There is under no circumstances to be ANY lap dances, touching of customers, or the allowing of customers to touch you,” the building permit notes specify. “You are expressly prohibited from ‘MASSAGING’ a customer, and are expressly prohibited from ‘SITTING ON A CUSTOMER’S LAP.'”
