Gladstone Street to get a strip club?

By johnboy 23 May 2010 20

The Canberra Times brings word that Melbourne’s Fulvio Gobeo is planning to expand his X-rated businesses in Canberra (facebook tells us he is a director of “TIFFANY’S PALACE, 5 star bordello, escorts available for $280 per hour”).

The new venture, planned for Gladstone Street in Fyshwick, is going to be a strip club to break Sinsations’ monopoly on that part of the entertainment dollar. (Unless you count Lakeside Ferry Cruises.)

The CT’s Louis Andrews cheekily slips in this bit of barely veiled menace:

Mr Gobeo declined to comment until the application process had been completed, other than to say Capital Men’s Club would be spending ”a lot of money” on promotional material ”if and when” the application was approved.

(So mind your manners if you want to get a slice of the ad spend)

The latter part of the article seems to be hinting that previous efforts, by other parties, to start a second strip bar in Canberra have been headed off through fear of the reputed owners of Sinsations, The Rebels OMCG. An un-named senior rebel denies they own that establishment.

What’s Your opinion?

According to an ABN search, Sinsations is a family business.

Correct, I know the owners and it’s not Rebels owned – although there are some rebel connections.

Canberra is barely big enough for one Strip join, let alone two.

I know unnamed sources don’t mean very much but I like the idea of the CT having a hotline to a Rebels PR guy. It would be even better if they started issuing media releases.

Interesting angle to this story was that apparently there is already a strip club at Mitchell. Clearly doesn’t have the promotional budget that Mr Gobeo claims his one will have…never heard of it.

You mean Sinsations, mentioned in JB’s original post?

The Rebels are as frightening as the Owners Association at Goodwin Homes

LOL’d HARD! at what a keyboard hero you are.

You must be hard as nails bragging on RIOTACT on how tuff you are.

Lol at bagging someone for being a keyboard hero, then pretty much doing the same yourself.

Then we all LOL’d at Tooks / Captain Obvious

I’d better quit while I’m behind. I’m obviously dealing with a superior intellect here…

Off topic: the juxtaposition of having one Hoskins St brothel upstairs from the maternity and baby goods shop must result in many a wry grin?

Does this mean that Fyshwick will become the ‘golden mile’ of Canberra?

It’s already the “golden shower” of Canberra.

What a joke the Rebels have their finger in every pie, they just get people to put the clubs in their names!
