    Looks like they have a facebook page up giving the address as 1155 N. Front St (Front & Girard), aka Club Ozz.

    1155-57 N FRONT STREET, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19123 - Google Maps

    The owners of the Gold Club also now own Club Ozz. So it was likely coming. Can anyone who has been to both compare them?

    Wasn't the Gold Club going to open a few years ago at 13th and Locust? They failed in that, but if I recall their argument for a license was that they were a first class operation. Maybe this will be an improvement over Ozz.

    Um.....there's no way to improve Club Ozz. It's perfect.

    The Gold Club is on Chancellor Street in Center City off of 15th Street, basically it's behind the Applebee's. They were busted last year I think for offering sex acts in the private rooms. While it's not a dive like Club Ozz, it's also not upscale like Delilah's.

    If that was the Gold Club, apparently they did manage instead to open in the alley between The Bellevue and Applebee's.

    EDIT: I see MNG1324 was posting at the same time I did.

    so, it's going to go from one strip club to another... shouldn't come as a surprise. don't see any point in sounding the NIMBY dog whistle, either. the status quo is going to stay the same at that corner until we get more residents living closer to the El and more pressure to clean up that crucial intersection. FNA, KSNAC (or whatever they're called now), and NLNA need to work together to make this a non-scummy 'gateway' to the various neighborhoods.

    You really need to lay of the McMeth from the McDonald's bathroom.
