You can expect Taboo to close soon up for sale as soon as done closed cuz won’t be able to get license 

Sorry, but that wasn't very clear. Could you explain a bit more?

Since the owner passed away the building is up for sale. One offer already refused. Once building sold Taboo is done as new owner won’t have a strip Club license.

Thanks for the update Rugbyman.  Many of the girls at Taboo wouldn't get in at Pigale and with Club 61 gone there is only really Club 77 (is it still open?) and Playmate left for the Taboo girls.

 

So does a club license stay with the owner and not the land?  Does Gatineau have a restriction that basically reduces the # of licenses as properties are sold.

Ur right club 77 still open or Playmate. License is the owners and a new building owner would have to apply for his own.  Given past trouble there very doubtful one would be granted

I heard from a former Taboo dancer that Frank from Pigale's (formerly of Pigale's? I have a hard time keeping track) is buying Taboo and is planning to do some renos soon. Will have to see if that actually happens...

I was wondering is  Taboo still open daily ?

Thanks

Yes..and daytime most customers are there for a quick release...rarely do any girls go on stage during the daytime and most girls bring privacy curtains for the CR.

It seems Taboo has been sold (not sure to who but it seems it won't be a strip club) and closed as of yesterday. If anyone knows where particular dancers land (ie, Ginger), if anywhere, please post here.

Well it is the end of an era.  The writing was on the wall for a while as the place was never very busy and most the money was made on dances that the girls keep and not the bar. 

 

Most girls don't have a lot of options of other places to go to in the area.  Club 61,  Le Pink, Barbarella's, Silver Dollar and now Taboo all gone in the last few years with no replacements.

Bar 77 is now opening at 12 noon and has invited all the girls from Taboo.

I heard that Ginger for one will be there Thurs and Friday this week.

Thus should breath new life into 77

I think it closed in maybe 2011 or so....it made Taboo look classy :):)  No dj, just a CD jukebox, retro porn on small tv's and lots of dance options available.  After it closed it became a high end steak house and then that closed and I think it is another restaurant.

 

Has anyone been to Club 77 now that Taboo girls may be there?  What is the privacy  like in the CR.  I went once about 10 years ago and it was very quiet.

A baptist church now occupies the upper part of the building.

Did the Adam Motel buy the building ?  I know the Adam requires some people staying there to sign a waiver promising not to bring any dancers from Pigale to their room or they will call the Police, seems very heavy handed to me. 

Maybe they were just targeting me cause I was alone but they wanted me to sign the waiver promising not to bring any dancer to my room or I could not stay at the Adam.

No idea whether they were targeting you. It could be because you look like a high roller but I doubt it. I stay in a lot of hotels all over the place and I have never had to sign a waiver like that but I guess where Adam Motel is situated the owner is worried about being shut down by the Police. If he has something signed like that then he has a plausible deniability defense. The lawyers always like to have some sort of defense to make their clients not liable. 

In case you were not aware, Gatineau Police frequently have nothing else better to do but hang out in that area and go into the strip club to check out  the strippers.   I suppose if I were in their shoes, I would be doing the same thing.
