The mayor of Providence, R. A producer for WJAR was allegedly offered sex for money by dancers during each of four trips over the past three months to a Providence club called the Cadillac Lounge. Read the WJAR reports here and here. In addition, private investigators working for a private client in Providence alleged in confidential reports provided to WJAR that prostitution was occurring at two other strip clubs as well. Video from the Cadillac Lounge and Club Desire documenting the offers of sex was aired on the station Monday and Tuesday night, and the investigators also provided a report alleging that a similar offer was made at a club called Fantasies.
A strip club site in Providence tries to shake off its sordid past
Hemenway's Restaurant | Menu | Providence, RI
Friendly, creative, and gay-welcoming Providence is one of the great success stories among industrial Eastern U. The nightlife is mostly concentrated in the downtown area, so tourists need not venture too far from their hotel rooms. Maybe it has something to do with its young demographic, but Providence's bar scene is hip and lively enough to rival Brooklyn's. For a small city, Providence has an impressive number of designated gay clubs more than gay bars, in fact. So, after you finish your beer at Providence Eagle, your cocktail at The Stable, or your round of trivia at Alley Cat, hit these happening clubs for a night of riotous dancing. The gayest diner in town, DownCity where the hostesses dressed in drag , has closed, leaving Providence's gay-specific culinary scene a bit lacking. You're likely to stumble upon gay-themed events in Providence's bars and clubs during your regular weekend romps, but for something even more celebratory, join in on one of these annual LGBTQ festivals.
THE RAW BAR
Medeiros also runs neighboring strip club Wonderland, the adult entertainment Megaplex, and Club Wave. Silhouettes will open in February. Charles Tapalian, who owned and operated Cheaters, still owns the site, listed under its corporate name, The Pink Building.
