San Bernardino Owes Money to a Strip Joint

Stiffing the pole dancers isn't cool

The city of San Bernardino has many creditors, according to documents recently submitted to a federal bankruptcy judge. There are banks, construction firms, a local sign maker… and a strip club.

Of all the creditors, the Flesh Club might have the longest and most litigious relationship with San Bernardino. The city went to court nearly 20 years ago in an effort to shut down the club over alleged code violations.
