How do you sell a place that was previously a strip club



I'm curious. There is an old strip club here that has been closed for years. The building is for sale, and I was considering buying it and altering it into a bar or something else. I have no interest in opening it back up as a strip club, as it's clear it didn't work out for them when they were originally open.

Anyway, I was wondering, is it tougher to sell a building that was previously a strip club?

It shouldn't be tough. If it's remodeled and all that, it should be fine. As long as it's a good property and isn't in rough shape, it should sell fine. I'm sure most people wouldn't care about it.

A strip club closed down and was later bought and turned into a garden shop. After this, sold again and replace with a strip club. Finally, this one closed and the new owners who currently have the property run a restaurant out of it.

You have to market it as a number of things. I would avoid restaurants as those tend to be a hard sell when things like COVID are happening. You can pitch it as all sorts of business fronts.

I'm not sure it matters what the building was as long as it doesn't have a terrible history behind it.

Fix it up and present it as a building ready to be anything. You don't even need to mention what it once was.

Good marketing I suppose. You don't want to label it as a previous strip club for example. Call it an adult-themed bar or topless entertainment bar. It sounds less off putting. You can also use the term gentlemen's club depending on the build and general area.
