An Oregon Strip Club Has Gone 'Mad Max' to Save Its Business, and the Aesthetic is a Mood (NSFW-ish)

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, sometimes it feels like we’re living in a post-apocalyptic America where no one can leave their homes, the price of oil is essentially worthless, and the President of the United States is advising viewers of his highly-rated press briefings to drink bleach. In Portland, Oregon, a strip club called the Lucky Devil has gone a step further by adopting a post-apocalyptic aesthetic for their business.

The Lucky Devil Lounge has two concepts: “Food to Go-Go,” where customers can watch a burlesque show as they drive through to pick up their food, or “Boobers Delivery” — formerly Boober Eats, before Uber filed a cease and desist — where employees bring food to customers’ homes.

The programs were started to help the exotic dancers who had otherwise lost income during the COVID-19 pandemic. From the Post:

“The dancers are making money. Everyone that comes through is super stoked and videotaping and throwing money and just being super cool. It’s exciting when there’s a carload of people happy to see these girls dance,” Boulden told The Post.

For $30, a customer gains access to the drive-thru pole dance show where food, typical pub fare, is delivered while the customer enjoys a show. The access is typically good for one song — but the customer can pay for another as they would a private dance.

Food prices remain the same as before the COVID-19 crisis.

I’m not into strip clubs or exotic dancers, but I am into the impressive aesthetic of all this, and can’t help but think that this could make for a hell of a movie someday (Roxana suggested it should be directed by Nicholas Winding Refn). If a movie is produced based on this concept, they should definitely bring in photographer Steve Dykes, who captures one hell of a great shot, as evidenced here, where a Lucky Devil employee is pictured driving away in the delivery vehicle, a hearse.
