A FAILED lapdancing club in Durham City has reopened in drag.
Eazy Street club in North Road will feature cabaret, drag, and other stage acts four nights a week until the early hours,
The opening show featured circus performers, dancing girls, and David Dale from The Showbears – a group of singing sailors who appeared on television’s Britain’s got Talent.
Full-time compere will be drag queen Carla Jackson.
Club operator H H Leisure says it has invested £65,000 in a quickfire refit of the former Loft nightclub.
Manager Craig Rowe called the new venue ‘fun’.
“There’s nothing sleazy or dirty going on,” he said. “It’s nothing too serious or explicit, it’s entertainment and fun,
“We are conscious this is new for Durham, which has not had anything like this before.
“We feel Durham is ready for a few sequins and something uniquely Eazy Street.”
The first Eazy Street club opened in Newcastle two years ago.
