Melbourne, Oct 5 (ANI): A strip club in Gold Coast, Australia can no longer have its dancing girls strip completely, because of licencing issues over non payment of debt.
Players Showgirls, in Surfers Paradise, was stripped of its adult entertainment permit by the Office of Liquor and Gaming after it went into receivership in April with debts of nearly 1 million dollars, the Daily Telegraph reported.
Several customers have contacted the Bulletin to complain they had not got what they paid for after splashing out 50-60 dollars for five free drinks and a private lap dance expecting the stripper to take all her clothes off.
"They get you in on the drinks card and lap dance but you're not getting what you paid for. It was bit of a rort," a customer said.
"One of the girls even apologised to us. She said they weren't allowed to strip because of the licencing issues," he said.
A liquor licensing spokeswoman confirmed the ban on stripping at Players, but said moves were under way to reinstate its full strip club status.
"Players at Surfers Paradise does not currently hold a permit to conduct adult entertainment, but is licensed to supply liquor," she said.
"OLGR has provided assistance to representatives of the licensee of Players to assist them in ensuring that entertainment conducted at the premises is not of a nature that requires an adult entertainment permit.
"An application for an adult entertainment permit is currently under consideration by OLGR," she added. (ANI)
