As a big renovation project progresses at the historic Clermont Hotel, its famous basement dive bar/strip club is going on hiatus. The Clermont Lounge will close for roughly six weeks, killing the lights from January 1 to "February 15thish."
The Clermont Lounge will TEMPORARILY be closed due to hotel construction starting on January 1st. We will reopen on February 15thish.— Clermont Lounge (@ClermontLounge) December 21, 2016
There has been some concern the opening of a sparkling boutique hotel would spell doom for the seedy vice den, a favorite of soon-to-be-hungover locals and visiting celebrities alike. But, developers say the Clermont Lounge will remain open. With a long vacation in the near future, a New Year’s Eve visit may be appropriate. Stop by, grab a PBR, and say hello to Peaches.
