You bring the hidden flask, I’ll bring the bills in Ziplocs, and we’ll meet at the underwater strip club.
The images come courtesy of Gil Koplovitz, a a marine biologist who found himself working underwater in the vicinity of the empty, subaquatic strip joint in Eilat, Israel. He explained the mystery behind the curious establishment in an email to the Huffington Post, revealing that it used to be an underwater restaurant before it re-opened as one of the most bizarre strip clubs we’ve ever heard of.
“The entrance [to the strip joint] is above water,” Koplovitz said. “People just crossed a 230-foot bridge and went down a flight of stairs. No need to get wet.”
The defunct club, Nymphas Show Bar, still has an active website, and Koplovitz isn’t sure exactly when the destination closed its doors. His photos — taken through the windows — show a glossy, pristine interior, and though the tables and chairs have been removed, the stripper’s pole remains. (Via)
I visited Eilat with a Birthright tour a couple of years ago, but we never visited Nymphas Show Bar. I don’t care if the trip was free: I want my money back. Anyway, Mr. Ufford and friends already took the best #UnderwaterStripClubs, though I’d like to throw Crotchstaceans into the running. “You’ll get crabs or your money back.”
