New Carlisle nightclub Kiss will have topless bar staff

Hunks in trunks will serve drinks at a new Carlisle nightclub that is aiming to attract a female clientele.
Owners of Kiss say they want women in the city to have a place where they can go to enjoy a fun, novelty night out.
The club, in the former Terminal 1 in Englishgate Plaza, has employed “young, good-looking men” to serve cocktails and drinks.
The male bar staff will be topless – wearing just cuffs and collars – and there will be a ladies night once a month featuring exotic male dancing.
Licensee Mike Tudor said: “They are a bit like male Chippendales but we wouldn’t call them strippers. They are exotic dancers.
“We want to reinvent the nightclub but make it girl friendly.”
The club features a dance floor, stage and VIP area where women on hen parties and birthday nights out can sit and be served drinks.
Richard Kane, the club’s general manager, said: “We want to create a good, fun atmosphere. We are a female friendly nightclub and we don’t want it to be sleazy. We want it to be fun.
“The club is open to men as well as women, although it is primarily for women aged between 18 and 35.”
“We think Carlisle needs something like this. It is a place where people can come and dance to chart and commercial music. We are geared up for the mass market.
“Women can come with their friends and if they give us their camera cards then we can put them in the projector and show their images on the big screen.”
Clubbers will enter via the old Terminal 1 entrance.
Customers can walk between lap dancing bar Rouge, Kiss and Big Al’s sports bar upstairs.
The club, which is free for women, is open on Friday and Saturday nights between 10pm and 4am.

Have your say
Is it even legal to let women in free and charge men, surely thats sexist... and what's the point in alienating half of your customers before they get thru the door?
Typical pessimistic people of carlisle wating new ventures to fail! Carlisle needs a new place and its good there is a dress code to keep out the dregs of carlisle! Hope it succeeds good luck.
