Baltimore Scores to Open

Baltimore- Scores, a New York upscale adult entertainment club made famous by shock jock Howard Stern, will open in Charm City as early as this June. While Baltimore Street’s array of porn shops and strip clubs have comfortably thrived among the downtown businesses and government buildings, the city had not been courted by the high-end adult outfits that cater to businesspeople until Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club’s debut in November. Now, the city that has snagged upscale chains such as Fleming’s Prime Steak House and Morton’s of Chicago is getting a higher-end version of adult entertainment.

“The name [Scores] is known in many cities due to years of publicity and attention,” said Lonnie Hanover, a spokesperson for Scores Holding Co. “We have a very trendy, hip club.”

The Scores clientele reads like a who’s who of the music and movie industries. In just the past 30 days, Kid Rock, Sting, and Vin Diesel are among the celebrities who have frequented the New York outlet, Hanover said. Offering high-end decor, top-shelf wine and champagne, and a dress code that prohibits ripped jeans, T-shirts and sneakers, Scores features evening-gown-clad dancers who remove everything but their g-strings.

Owners of the company Club 2000 Eastern Avenue Inc., which operates the club known as Chubbies Club on Eastern Avenue, have entered into a a multiyear sublicensing agreement with the Scores licensing company.

Club 2000 spokesman Andrew Alley could not say whether the new club would open at the Chubbies spot or elsewhere, but that the agreement was for Baltimore and the surrounding areas.

Chubbies is in a renovated corner bar in a rowhouse neighborhood north of Fells Point.

Alley said it is too soon to reveal too many details, but Club 2000 investors said in a statement that the club will help city businesses.

“We believe that the opening of Scores Baltimore will have a positive economic impact on the city by attracting conventions and tourism, upscale businesspeople, celebrities and sports figures,” the statement reads.

In cities such as Atlanta, for instance, adult clubs generate $240 million a year, according to the Association of Club Executives (ACE).

The abundance of strip clubs in cities such as Atlanta, Dallas and Las Vegas has made such places popular convention destinations, said Angelina Spencer, ACE’s executive director.

In many cases, meeting planners choose a convention location “based on the adult entertainment that is available — though no one will come out and admit that,” said Spencer, who authored a report titled the Financial Impact of Adult Business in America.

Officials at the Baltimore Area Convention and Visitors Association (BACVA) said an upscale strip club could boost convention sales. In a statement, Debra Dignan, associate vice president of convention sales, said “a facility such as this enhances the experience of certain travelers looking for these types of venues while on business.”

Scores has chosen Baltimore, along with Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, and Miami, as key cities for its aggressive expansion plan, Hanover said. Scores opened a club in Chicago last September, and made Baltimore its third city because it found the right investors and the timing was right, he said.

“We’ve been negotiating with many cities for a while,” Hanover said.

Meanwhile, business at the Hustler club has been brisk, and will likely pick up further once baseball season starts, said Manager Hal King. Is Hustler worried about competition from Scores?

“In all honesty, Baltimore needs a little bit of a change in the style of its adult atmosphere,” King said.

But neighbors who live near Chubbies’ East Baltimore location say they don’t want a new club, whether it is high-end or low-brow.

Donna Zebe, secretary of the Mid-Point Community Association, said neighbors fear that Club 2000 will take over the building next door to Chubbies for expansion.

Members of the community association have complained about noise, garbage and traffic at the Chubbies location, she said.

A strip club is “no draw for people we want in our neighborhood,” Zebe said.
