Gentlemen's club, picadilly
The notorious club 'turned a blind eye' to strict 'no touching' dancers rules. A notorious London strip club famed for the motto "we never closed during the Blitz" has lost its appeal to keep its windmill gentlemens club licence. Windmill International, where many star comedians including Peter Sellers launched their careers in its cabaret past, has had its appeal to get its licence back turned down by Westminster City Council. The club, which also inspired the movie Mrs Henderson Presents, was under threat of closure following a series of undercover stings which revealed licence breaches including allowing punters to break 'no touching' dancers rules.
Legendary soho lap dance club windmill international loses fight to get its licence back
Chief magistrate Emma Arbuthnot this week upheld the council's decision not to renew windmill gentlemens club club's Sexual Entertainment Venue licence. The Soho club, owned by Big Country Ltd, faced licence breach claims after an anonymous women's group complained to the council. The group had sent former police officers undercover into the club in late They provided written evidence to the council that the dancers had repeatedly rubbed up against them and other clients in private booths in the red velvet and brass-furnished venue.
I bought her a white wine and a Malibu and coke for [another] performer. He wrote that the dancer initiated sexual contact despite his protestations, and he said he witnessed another client sexually touching a lap dancer.
The former police officer described two more lap dances in which another dancer broke the no-touching rules. He said Summer approached him around 2am as he was leaving and said: "You have travelled the world tonight!
You have been to Colombia, had a dominatrix and a sex change person. Over the past two decades, the club had been run by Oscar Owide, a notorious London strip club tzar, who died in December He was described in the judgment as a "Zeus-like" and "colourful and domineering character" who had once served a prison sentence for VAT fraud.
The Windmill had been run by his son Daniel Owide since his death. He did not respond to a request via the club for a comment on its future.
The judgement said since the breaches were uncovered, Mr Owide had taken steps including windmill gentlemens club training, dismissing dancers, insisting cash payments went to cashiers, not performers, hiring new security and improving CCTV coverage. However, Judge Arbuthnot found while Mr Owide was of "good character" with no convictions, his management of the Crazy Horse bar in Stanmore had also had licensing problems and she concluded he had demonstrated a similar inability to manage the Windmill.
I think it is a fair suggestion that it was so widespread that the customers must have known that windmill gentlemens club paying extra they could obtain rather more than the usual dance. Westminster's cabinet member for public protection and licensing, Cllr Ian Adams, said the judge's decision set a "powerful precedent" for similar venues that they "cannot turn a blind eye to bad behaviour".
