A LAP dancing club featuring naked and topless women is to open in the heart of Worcester’s Lowesmoor.

The ‘Black Cherry’ gentleman’s club is to open at the former DNA club in the new year after a second, successful attempt by the businessman behind the scheme.

Ash Patel chose to withdraw plans for a similar club at the former Images and Funk nightclub, in the Butts, in September amid public outrage over possible corruption of young people and the club’s proximity to the Hive.

However, Mr Patel has succeeded in getting the old DNA club’s premises licence transferred to him two weeks ago, which will now allow him to now run the venue as a lap-dancing club.

There will be on average 15 different dancers performing each night, all of whom will have been selected “for their engaging personalities,” said a spokesman.

He said celebrities, including some big name television stars, had been invited to the opening, the date of which has yet to be confirmed.

“This is a Bohemian part of Worcester, very cosmopolitan. It is perfect for this venue,” he said.

The club will feature a main bar area and a stage but also six private dance booths and three VIP rooms.

Before midnight, dancers will wear elegant evening gowns but, after this time, they will be allowed to wear various outfits.

They will only be able to be fully naked in the private booths and the stage will feature topless rather than fully naked dancers.

The plan is to open from 9pm to 4am on weekdays and 9pm to 4.30am on Saturdays.

Mr Patel’s spokesman said the windows outside would be blacked out.

Ash Patel, the licensee, said: “I’m looking forward to opening the only licensed gentleman’s club in a 30-mile radius.

“This is a legal form of entertainment regulated by the council and by a licence, issued and paid for.”

Because the venue has an existing premises licence, as long as he does not try to vary the hours of operation Mr Patel does not have to apply for permission.

But the council has now adopted the regulations of the Policing and Crime Act, which will make it tougher for sexual entertainment facilities to get a licence in the future.

About time too!
Well done to all concerned, let's see what the self imposed moral guardians of Worcester have to say about this perfectly legal and licensed venue now.
I presume that nobody will be forced through the doors to watch the entertainment and only consenting adults will venture in, so what's the problem?
The council has charged a fee to grant this licence and it's in a part of town away from the library and all the objections that brought up so let's just encourage a new business in the city to thrive, like any other bar or club that adds to the local night time economy.

So with its' sex shop, pound shops etc. now being joined by a lap dancing club - St Martins Quarter is really attracting the better businesses! I'm sure John Lewis will now be putting in a bid to open a flag ship store in the Faithful City!

John Lewis is a pipe dream.

At least be happy someone wants to invest in the City, or would you prefer more units with for sale/to let signs outside them?

John Lewis wont move to Worcester as there isn't anywhere big enough for them. But I am sure that there is a John Lewis in London, Solihull to name a few. I am also sure that these places have clubs of this nature to, along with pound shops etc...

So don't think this will put anyone off moving into Worcester!

Their prices are just a competitive as anyone else. They offer better warranties , exceptional customer services, brilliant return policies. When you look at the value they deliver they easily out perform 96% of the standard high street and even on line shops.....

Speaking as a woman, my objection is not to the club itself but the scum that it will attract. Unfortunately, I have to walk through this 'bohemian' area to get home at night and the thought of doing so once this establishment opens fills me with trepidation. I stupidly thought that the idea was to make Lowesmoor slightly more upmarket.

So you’re happy to have pictures of women in their underwear as well as models in bras and pants in windows all along the High Street (M&S, Debenhams, Anne Summers) but you object to similar hidden away behind blacked out windows in an out of the way part of town.

Methinks some people need to have a reality check.

Yes, valid point...But those 'models' are mannequins. Personally, it doesn't bother me what goes on inside, but why a lap dancing club?? Was their a petition and this was everyone's answer to attract business in to Worcester. There are many other establishments that this area could have been used for. In my opinion, I think it will end up attracting the wrong kind of people. And they certainly won't be coming to see Worcester.

I repeat, my objection is that this place will attract more lowlife to an area which is already less than salubrious. Also, this is not an 'out of the way part of town'! I don't personally care what goes on inside this place, as the 'employees' are presumably consenting adults, so your argument about M & S, etc, is totally irrelevant.

Why would you and others think that this venue will only attract 'scum' and ''lowlife'?
Don't you think that successful businessmen along with lawyers and Doctors ever visit such clubs?
Do you believe that couples won't also go in?
If you do, I believe you need to get out a bit more love...

Feel free to open your own business selling whatever "other things that could go there" that you wish.

There are plenty of empty premises available. If you think you can do so much better then do it.

Like What? It has been empty for a long time now. No one wants to move in there.

Its a lap dancing club, nothing else just somewhere people like to go and relax, have a drink and see the sights. If that is what they want to do then good on them. I bet there will be a mixture of people in there no just all the perverted, sad little men that you refer to. But the easy thing is, if you don't want to see this then don't go there.

Calm down! Why is the story published if it isn't open for debate. I didn't realise everyone had to have the same opinion and if it was wrong they would be dismissed. We'll see where this place gets this city...It didn't work with Images did it?? Just because this new LD club may have a famous guest list for it's opening or be considered a 'gentlemen's club', giving it the impression that it is going to be upper class doesn't mean it will work or will in any way benefit anyone...It will meet the same ill fated demise that Images did. Pardon me for having an opinion. If we weren't allowed to share them there wouldn't be a 'comment' section. We'll see what comes of it when it has opened.

Blackcherry Manager says...

As the manager of this club I've watched the response to the article with interest. Obviously I was expecting a range of generalisations and stereotypical comments combined with some bawdy school boy humour.
Until the club is up and running there can only be speculation as to the class of customer we attract and the indignation of the few people who who will be anti us, whatever, due in many ways to their archaic and small mindeded attitudes.
Can we just remember that all of the licensable activities will take place inside the club.... There will be no salacious advertising on the exterior and no one who does not wish to come in will be under any compulsion to enter. I think the doubters will be surprised at the high standards throughout the venue and will be disappointed that the club is not as seedy or sordid as they might have hoped for.
We looked forward to opening and working with both the police and Worcester regulatory authorities to ensure that we become an established addition the the night time economy of the City, employing local people and ensuring that no crime and disorder or public nuisance emanates from the club.
I look forward to seeing all readers of this newspaper as our guests on the opening weekend.

I'm a pragmatist and realise that clubs such as Blackcherry will always exist - and subject to the correct controls by both the management and authorities will cause the minimum of trouble. However in an ideal world they would not exist in a city centre but at an out of town location (within an industrial estate for instance) I do not wish Worcester being turned into a Stag venue (I lived in Blackpool for some time so I know the mayhem that rival stag parties can generate!)

There's your business opening. Let us know when it's starting up and we can all complain that it's lowering the tone of the area.
I'm glad you finally agree that a LD club would lower the tone of the area it's in
I don't, I was just jumping on your bandwaggon.

But hey, ho, you don't like it. We get that, but at the end of the day tough, it's there. If there's a market for it it will succeed, if there isn't it will fail and nothing you or I will do will make any difference.
That's my whole point. Like I said, we'll see what happens. I know that nothing anyone says will make a difference. That's not why I say it. I'm just voicing my opinion, like you. We are, sort of, on the same page!!
You could always go to worcester news and say your unhappy with the idea. You can get get your photo taken with a professional photographer who will tell you to cross your arms and look discusted.

@ Brocky80 ...... please do not misconstrue my words, when referring to 'small minded" people, I was meaning those who self appoint themselves as the moral guardians of the population of Worcester, objecting to the club on the basis of their own morals, without ever seeing for themselves how the club is run and the high standards therein. If one has never been into this type of establishment and particularly this club itself, I feel it is impossible to make a value judgement and thus be totally objective on the subject.
I invite any near neighbours of the venue to contact me without delay if they feel there is an issue that effects them that stems from the club once it is open, in order that I might take steps to rectify the situation to their satisfaction, if it is within my power.

@pinkfluff..... Thank you for your response too. I can assure you that the notion of fines for staff in the industry is outdated and will not be seen in this club.

As a businessman, Mr Patel is obviously hoping to make money out of his venture. Other than that, surely any type of business here in Worcester is going to be good for our economy. It's also going to create jobs. There will be rules and regulations that have to be abided by so I don't see what the problem is. As as woman and a patron of a couple of pubs in Lowesmoor I can only see that it can be regarded as a relatively good thing for the area. Why should places like these be expected to open out of town? As someone said further up, the sights one sees in other parts of town are likely to be so much worse. Obviously I won't be a patron of this new club but I wish Mr Patel the best of luck.

Until the club is up and running there can only be speculation as to the class of customer we attract and the indignation of the few people who who will be anti us, whatever, due in many ways to their archaic and small mindeded attitudes.
Can we just remember that all of the licensable activities will take place inside the club.... There will be no salacious advertising on the exterior and no one who does not wish to come in will be under any compulsion to enter. I think the doubters will be surprised at the high standards throughout the venue and will be disappointed that the club is not as seedy or sordid as they might have hoped for.
We looked forward to opening and working with both the police and Worcester regulatory authorities to ensure that we become an established addition the the night time economy of the City, employing local people and ensuring that no crime and disorder or public nuisance emanates from the club.

I am not a fan of these places but they employ dancers, not whores. The women are the ones with the power and they will be queuing up to work there.

Amy and co, its not a bad idea to go along and actually experience this type of club. You will be far from the only female customers and may get a better idea of what they are all about.

I do enjoy a debate about safety around these clubs, women should actually be safer with doormen and cctv on the outside of clubs. Of course there have been claims that these clubs cause men to go out and rape and pillage. However strangely this is not true. So first I would suggest you read http://strippingthei
llusion.blogspot.co.
uk/2012/04/violent-c
rime-report.html and compare that with the average night club. The ones that do seem to have issues are located in areas alongside night clubs. I know because I have investigated crime around these places.

You often see the Lilith report quoted as a reason not to open clubs. However it seems that the Charity that commissioned the report have removed it from their website as their maths appear a little off. A more accurate analysis http://strippingthei
llusion.blogspot.co.
uk/2013/08/ding-dong
-lilith-is-dead.html and yes I was the one that got the FoI and went over the figures.

So in reality the challenges to these clubs come from moralists and more scarily scaremongers. There have been clubs for Ladies when men take off their clothes I believe one is still operating in Blackpool. There have been clubs where ladies dance for ladies and there are clubs that cater for men with male dancers. Strange it is only ever the women dancing for men of their own free will that gets objected to. I could go on as I have a whole blogs worth of information but I think people get my point.

It always amazes me that someone choses to go on a crusade about how terrible one of these clubs is with no knowledge or experience of them.
If you take the femanism argument about how degrading it is I suggest you speak to the ladies who work there who often make a great living. I have met both lawyers and school teachers who supliament their incomes very well doing such a job. It is rarely seedy as you suggest, and empowers the performer far more than the person watching.
Secondly - Attract dirty old men? I doubt it - more likely to be business men, friends on a night out, stag dos and couples etc.
Amy you seem horrified that a couple might enjoy a lap dance together. Appreciating the female form is no different from appreciating any art form! Just as the male form, think Chippendales etc.

People have a set of inbuilt moral beliefs and these vary. Some people put up spurious or uniformed arguments as an attempt to justify their beliefs which at the end of the day is all they are. Experience is reality.

This type of entertainment venue has no specific social demograpic that it only attracts. They are not just frequented by perverts and rapists or dirty old men. Their clientel is probably no different to that of John Lewis.

There certainly is a market for you and I feel any new business in Lowesmoor is better than another sad and lonely, empty building.
I look forward to receiving my invite and meeting you :)
Best of Luck.

I think you need to get out more. I'm a lawyer, married with two kids and I don't go to nightclubs because it's for the younger generation. I don't go to pubs very often but I do go to a Cheltenham lap dancing club where I go with a few of my friends and we can have a quiet drink in a very relaxed atmosphere. I will say neither me or my friends are dirty old men or what your perception is of the type of clientele that go to these clubs. As for the women that work there, they're very intelligent, well mannered and have self respect. Even if I was a 'dirty old man' I wouldn't be able to touch any of them. I most likely would get thrown out by one of six security guards, which unfortunately happened to one of my friends when we were 'dirty young men'.

I'd like to know why some women have commented on here about being too nervous to walk up Lowesmoor at night and even more so when this place opens. The Pig & Drum, Firefly and Brewery Tap all have bouncers as will this club. There's generally a police presence around which, I believe, is from certain people causing trouble in the Brewery Tap. I'd say it's probably one of the safest parts of town on weekend nights. No-one is forcing any of us to go into the club so we don't go. I also seem to remember that the main problem with the original site down the Butts was because it was opposite the Hive, which is frequented by younger persons. Considering the Hive is open in the day and this club will be open at night I don't understand why this would be a problem. Is the Private Shop not open during the day when many school children are walking past? I really do think that some of the people that have commented on this thread need to get a grip with reality.

Because of my past experiences and the way society views female victims of rape or sexual assault.

Just for balance, this is what I do to keep myself as safe as possible and if the very worst should happen then hopefully I won't be implicated in any way.

Always immediately lock my car door when I get in....day or night.

Walk away from the kerb and/or bushes. This can be a dilemma though if bushes on one side and road on the other.....will it be safer to walk closer to the bushes or the kerb. I have to weigh it up sometimes.

Taxi to and from home if I wear heels.

I try to avoid walking anywhere alone when on a night out.

Plan outfits carefully when going out.

Walk on the side of the road where the traffic is oncoming.

If I do have to walk anywhere after dark I try to look as confident as possible.

Have keys ready to unlock my front door before I reach it so I can enter straight away and close the door.

Feel free to ask if you have any more questions.

Just because a lap dancing club is opening doesn't mean you are more at risk of assault it can happen any where and usually not in a busy place with loads of people about. As a woman I would rather be walking through Lowesmoor than say Warndon Villages late at night. As for slimy men they can also be found anywhere but the difference is rather than standing in a bar and oggling women, in the club they will have to pay to do so. Hope the club does really well and the women make good money. Quite jealous really always fancied pole dancing but not sure my back is upto it now lol

On a lighter note, another new business, another building not standing empty, more jobs and something for people to travel to come to Worcester for, its a win win situation.

Would rather my fiance go to a place like that where he can admire the beauty of the female form from afar rather then end up in a s**thole like tramps where the girls dress in less then strippers attire anyway and are NOT under a 'no touch' policy ;) *evil giggle*

On a lighter note, another new business, another building not standing empty, more jobs and something for people to travel to come to Worcester for, its a win win situation.
Nice to know that you have so much trust in your 'fiance'!!!
Oh believe me love, i trust him 100% and couldn't care less where he ends up on a night out. Small thing called sarcasm, hence the evil giggle.

Nowt at all wrong with window shopping, does not mean you have to buy the goods.

It would appear that the excellent and rather upmarket florist on the corner of Lowesmoor is now about to move. Is there any connection between this and the opening of 'Black Cherry', I wonder?!
Actually the reason why the florest is moving, is because they are not doing as well as they thought. That's business for you, you either make it or you don't, so if this new club is still around after a year then they are doing ok and if they close so what. Different businesses coming into the area will be good for other local businesses as it will bring a variety of new people around Worcester. Hopefully there is no objections and I for one hope it does very well.

This is madness...

1) if a man is sick in the head and thinking about attacking somebody a strip club isn't going to make any difference to whether he does it or not!

2) if you as a woman object because your partner might go in there... Get over yourself go buy some sexy underwear and show him what YOU'VE got!

3) it's a club with blacked out windows... If you don't like it don't go in there!!

4) stop spending so much time arguing on a computer about something you won't change anyway and go do number 2! Might loosen u up a bit!!

Engaging personalities alone will not keep a 'strip-club' open long. The girls in the former Images nightclub were horrific, and look where that place ended up.

And for too long Lowesmoor has been a dump, opening this place will not make the slightest bit of difference.
Just because a lap dancing club is opening doesn't mean you are more at risk of assault it can happen any where and usually not in a busy place with loads of people about. As a woman I would rather be walking through Lowesmoor than say Warndon Villages late at night. As for slimy men they can also be found anywhere but the difference is rather than standing in a bar and oggling women, in the club they will have to pay to do so. Hope the club does really well and the women make good money. Quite jealous really always fancied pole dancing but not sure my back is upto it now lol
If you are going dislike my comment at least leave a comment as to why!

Without wishing for any invatation (well not at my age now) I hope this venture is successful. Having some years ago visited similar clubs in London the thoughts of anyone going in for a quick grope will quickly be taken care of by (to call them a nice name) the security staff.
And like other comments on walking through Worcester after 10pm I have seen more knickers and bits & pieces on show outside the pubs than is good for me.
I hope that this club is monitored and the girls who work there are doing so of their own free will. Having said that those who are offended don't have to go there or even pass by there.
We have seen gay pubs and clubs open here which I do not subscribe to but I do not clamour for their closure.

If you take the femanism argument about how degrading it is I suggest you speak to the ladies who work there who often make a great living. I have met both lawyers and school teachers who supliament their incomes very well doing such a job. It is rarely seedy as you suggest, and empowers the performer far more than the person watching. Secondly - Attract dirty old men? I doubt it - more likely to be business men, friends on a night out, stag dos and couples etc. Amy you seem horrified that a couple might enjoy a lap dance together. Appreciating the female form is no different from appreciating any art form! Just as the male form, think Chippendales etc. People have a set of inbuilt moral beliefs and these vary. Some people put up spurious or uniformed arguments as an attempt to justify their beliefs which at the end of the day is all they are. Experience is reality. This type of entertainment venue has no specific social demograpic that it only attracts. They are not just frequented by perverts and rapists or dirty old men. Their clientel is probably no different to that of John Lewis. Amy, if you wish to open your mind I would be happy to accompany you on a visit to the club, I understand why people are scared or fearful of the unknown.
I smell a romance on the horizon, should I buy a hat?
Ha ha,

Sadly not I am afraid, I am a happily married man!

I do however enjoy the odd bit of entertainment so I will see you there Black Cherry Manager.

So there can't be a strip club opposite the office of the council leader's "work" place, but there isn't a problem with opening one in a residential area.
