Full story: Fox6 23
The owners of Silk Exotic tried to open another club in Walker's Point in 2009. They backed out, because residents were opposed to the gentleman's club being located in the bar district neighborhood. Full Story

I have been to Silk Milwaukee & Silk Juneau. They are a far cry from what most people invission when it comes to a place that provides this type of entertainment. Without getting into a battle of semantics, they are the only ones that actually captured the gentleman's club amenities, pervasive in larger markets such as Las Vegas and New York. I hope they succeed. Milwaukee could use more convention attracting venues downtown.

You are right there really hasn't been any problems. I live over by the one on the north side. However it's just the whole "image" of it that is disturbing. I find it funny that one of the owners is a children's author or was anyways. Hmmm I wonder what his next book will be?? Maybe "Milo's Trip To The Strip Club With Grandpa".

DISGUSTING! Get out of our city and state! You are ruining our city and making it seedy, classless, promoting crime, problems, filth, trash, and bringing in problems. This is so low, disrespectful and insulting! We need to make Milwaukee a classier, more upscale city with culture. People like you should not even be allowed to hold a job, you're pathetic with no morals or integrity. How do you live with yourself?!
Great Idea

What a great idea! SILK is very well run and very classy. I am supportive of this venture as it can only increase business in downtown. This will attract more conventions and bring in more money. Go Silk Go!

Why does it matter. People who oppose things like this, usually haven't gotten laid in like 40 years. Go For It, that's what I say. To anyone who doesn't like it, they can go to hell.

Really? Do we need more filth in the city? I don't think so. Strip clubs attact unsavory and disgusting people.(I am generalizing here. Maybe a few people that frequent strip clubs aren't disgusting but I am speaking about the majority) I don't think we need yet another one of these establishments in the area. People who frequent these strip clubs really need to find something better to do with their time other than ogle naked women. Truly pathetic.

Well Steven C Jensen, you obviously are the type of person who frequents placed like this based on your uneducated and rude remarks. Do you honestly think that sticking that $1 bill into the strippers g-string is going to get YOU laid? Think again. Those girls are shaking their stuff to bilk you of all of your cash and make you "think" that they like you! ha ha! Who's the idiot now genius?
Go ahead, waste all your money. Im sure your future wife/girlfriend will be impressed with that. Loser.

Anyone who goes to these establishments disrespects the women and themselves. It's perversion and is sad that it is allowed and that so many men defend it. God didn't create our earthly bodies to be used in such a way. It's disturbing that so many accept it as fun and innocent. What if it was your daughter?

Most normal people dont go there to get laid. They go there to watch them dance and have a good time. I go there with my husband and find nothing wrong with it. Maybe you should try a few out before you make a stupid remark!

I post this to "destruction of a city"
See the work "CITY" yes this is a city of all kinds of mixed attractions. This does not mean that there is no place for you. Go move to the woods up north. Live with the bears and deer and where social events are far and few between. Your attitude would keep us living in the 1800 are whole life. If you need help moving just post for Help, I have a big Truck....

I don't mind the idea of strip clubs, as they can be fun to go with a group of friends, however, property values are going to decline due to this and I think that's a big concern of the community. 1st and Pittsburgh is just a couple of blocks from the Third Ward. They have spent so much time and money trying to build this place into a nice community and I think by adding a strip club, it'll decrease property values. I'm also opposed to it being opened up where Martini Mike's used to be. That are is just TROUBLE. And having a strip club there isn't going to make it any better. I'm sure the shootings and prostitutes will still hang around there. Again, this will decrease property value. Hopefully the Alderman will do what's best for these communities. We're trying to rebuild Milwaukee.

The problem with so many of the comments here, is that they stem from what so very little people know about these operators. They have raised the bar in milwaukee regarding adult entertainment. Their club on silverspring is more of a complex than a club. They have a night club, a comedy club, and a gentleman's club in one venue. They do well maintaining a good customer demographic in a poor area. They run tight, well staffed venues. I personaly take visitors,(male & female)there from out of state that want this type of back drop to conduct business. It sounds crazy, but a good strip club is needed downtown. It will save me a 20 minute drive from down town to the northwest side for this type of quality club. Bring it, we need it!

You need to stop watching Glenn Beck and start making your own intelligent <==*key word* decisions. The fact that you seem to think a few strip clubs make my city classless is insulting, to begin with.

Second, if you had any open-mindedness in you at all you would realize that we do have a wonderful piece of Caltrava's work right here in the city, but you don't deride that based on the fact that it is used to house corporate venues, or that it is created by a foreign architect, do you?(Google that since I know you don't understand what I'm referring to).

Last but not least, if you've traveled outside of the USA, you might learn a thing or two about the way the world ACTUALLY works outside of your television-infused vision of a doomsday moral scenario whereby strip clubs and porn shops create serial killers and socialists.

Bottom line: Be proud you live here- perfect or not. You don't like it, move to Botswana, It's nice this time of year.

I totally agree. We are built to like sex, why deny it? For more information, see my earlier post entitled: "You don't like it, move to Botswana. It's nice this time of year."
