The City Council voted late Monday night to approve a bottle club license for[snip]
the owner of a strip club that the city shut down right after it opened last
month. The council voted 7-0 to approve the license for Dreamers Cabaret on
Warren Avenue, which opened on Sept. 17 and was closed the next day, after
Westbrook's fire inspector cited code violations. A bottle club doesn't sell or
serve alcohol, but patrons are allowed to bring their own.
City Administrator Jerre Bryant said before Monday's meeting that if the council- John C.L. Morgan
approved the bottle club license and the proposed ordinance, Ferrante would have
to decide between alcohol and nude dancing in his club.
