Shakers Gentleman's Club in Waverly will receive its liquor license after a decade-long battle, the city council decided in a vote Tuesday evening.
However, the club, which has been in operation for 24 years, won't be around in 2023.
A stipulation in the council's approval of the liquor license is that Shakers will cease operation by the spring of 2023 and that no sexually oriented business will be allowed to occupy that location.
The "special-use permit" has several conditions for owner Dan Robinson. The business is required to have a closing time of 2 a.m., change the bright pink building color to a neutral color and the removal of a van with nude photos from the premises, which Robinson said was already gone.
The permit also states Shakers "shall not post defamatory, derogatory or profane statements on any signage or structures on the property," referring to statements posted on the sign outside the club criticizing regulations backed by former Sen. Theresa Thibodeau of Omaha and Sen. Patty Pansing Brooks of Lincoln.
