PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island (AP) — Rhode Island’s Supreme Court says one of New England’s best-known strip clubs, the Foxy Lady, may reopen for now.
Thursday’s decision puts a temporary hold on Providence’s move to revoke the club’s licenses last month, after three dancers were charged with prostitution. The Foxy Lady’s management has said it was unaware of any prostitution.READ MORE: TD Garden Requiring Vaccination Or Negative COVID Test For Bruins, Celtics Games And Concerts

State regulators previously reinstated the club’s liquor license, but said they had to present a business plan first to the city before reopening. A city spokeswoman says they’re asking the state to clarify what the court decision means for the liquor license.MORE NEWS: Retired Hudson, New Hampshire, Police Sgt.
