Bourbon Street strip club illegally expanded into bar next door

Owners of the Bourbon Street strip club Scores cut a hole into a wall that allowed dancers to take customers into the third floor of a neighboring bar where they performed in private rooms. The neighboring bar, Beerfest, is not licensed as an adult entertainment venue and its license was suspended for 60 days Tuesday (Feb. 20). The business was also fined $3,500 as a result of the illegal strip club expansion and other violations.

Beerfest's suspension came after a nearly four-hour hearing at the New Orleans Alcoholic Beverage Control Board that included extensive testimony about a slew of violations that could threaten to ensnare Scores. The strip club is already on probation after its liquor license was suspended during a series of state Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control raids last month in which authorities documented prostitution in the club.

Beerfest and Scores are controlled by a family that also ran two strip clubs, Temptations and Lipstixx, that shut down after the January raids. The Olano family is also facing an eviction proceeding brought by Beerfest's landlord and violations at Scores that are scheduled for another city Alcoholic Beverage Control Board hearing next month.

A fourth Olano-owned strip club, Stilettos, is also on probation following the raids. That club was not the subject of the proceedings Tuesday.
