What do old-timey theatres, hotels, and clubs have in common? They tend to have marquees out front. None of them, however, are likely as great as the ones found at the Penthouse Night Club in Vancouver.
“Welcome to the home of Vancouver’s naughtiest nights, where exotic dancing and strip teases are just the beginning”, their website says.
This isn’t just your run-of-the-mill strip club, though.
The Penthouse has a history that goes back all the way to 1947. It has entertained the likes of Nat King Cole, Sammy Davis Jr., and even Frank Sinatra.
And the history, and personality, hits you before you even walk in the door. It all starts with the well-crafted marquees.
There’s something for everyone.
Some are seasonal.
In addition, some provide helpful weather updates to passersby.
Some allude to what’s behind the doors.
Some expound on proper etiquette.
Some poke fun at itself.
Some show humourous self-awareness.
Furthermore, some even get serious and advocate for better journalism.
Regardless of how you feel about strip clubs, you must admit that these marquees are objectively amazing.
To whomever writes the marquees, from one writer to another: kudos.
The Penthouse Night Club is located on 1019 Seymour Street in Vancouver.
