Plans for adult clubs on Arch St. stopped for now

Two potential “adult entertainment” clubs up the road in Pulaski County have been stopped for now. In the past month, the Pulaski County Quorum Court tabled a resolution for one of the proposed locations and an owner withdrew his application on a separate spot.

            Due to a new state law, before a business can request a private club permit from the Alcohol Beverage Control Board to serve alcohol, the applicant must receive an approved ordinance from the applicable city or county.  Businessman Jason Castillow’s request for a private club to be located at 11900 Arch Street, Little Rock to the Pulaski County Quorum Court was tabled permanently on April 9 during a regularly scheduled meeting.  The business was to be known as “Peaches Gentlemen’s Club.”

            On a nearby property, 10305 Arch Street, at the corner of Dixon Rd. and Arch Street, another property owned by Choice Equity Investments, was denied a permit by the Little Rock City Board on Jan. 31 and the owner had 30 days to appeal the decision.  That application stated the bar would contain a “runway elevated above the floor where female entertainers will occasional dance in a burlesque fashion to music.” The bar was to be called “Sky Bar.”

            The appeal was placed on the Little Rock Planning Commission’s agenda for Tuesday, April 16 however, the applicant dropped the appeal at last minute.
