Dante's Inferno

Nightclub based on the book

Dante's Inferno is an upscale, super-trendy nightclub with decor strongly based on the book.

The club is seen as a one story, ordinary bar, when you enter. There are regulars, and pooltables, and fuzzy TV programming. But, conspicuously located near the back, are two black doors adorned with a quaint enscription: "Enter the Inferno"... Dah da DAHHHH!!!

the stairs lead down, and immediatly the scene changes. You enter a circular room with no center. The circle of floor in front of you is as much as 200 feet wide, the circle has a diameter of 600 feet, as you look over the ledge you see smaller concentric rooms stacked into the ground in the shape of a gigantic cone pointing into the ground. Each room is theme'd according the the layers of hell in the Divine Comedy:

Limbo: Average sports bar feel. But really freaking awesome!

Lustful: Stripbar... With taste, right?

Gluttonous: Reasturaunt... big dishes. really big dishes...

Prodigal: Fine wines, CRYSTAL!

Wrathful (river of styx): Waterpark, more stripping?

Heretics: A experimental room, for live discussions, open debate. More drinking, more promiscuity if the notions abide.

Violent: Mud wrestling (of course!)

Fraudulent: Poker/Casino room

Treacherous: Coat room. Starting here encourages meandering to rooms you might not usually go to...

The place is huge, too huge to build and profit off of in 15 years, but put in the right city, it might become a architectural legend.

Feel free to voice your own opinion of how the rooms should span out... Inevitably, the concentric cirlce design should stay, but I am already predicting resistance to said themes...

       You might get funding if you name it the Trump/AOL/Time Warner inferno.

       Shameless marketing!?!? Banish-ed to the Fourth cirlcle! Do not stop at the strippers on your way, either, FEIND!   

       But, seriously, then we can air a reality show based on the whole ordeal. Surely something entertaining is gonna happen...   

       Oh yeah, 'bakers are in for free!!! Go to the VIB room if you dare...

       VIB, nice+

       How many pentacostals will we have to wade through at the entrance?   

       Hell reality show... sounds redundant to me.

       like vegas, only deeper. (+)

       A trivia side note: one scene in the Tim Burton film "Beetlejuice" features a strip club called "Dante's Inferno Room".

       Just to prove you can't change peoples' perceptions by advertising.
You may, though, by lying.

       Debauchery ultimately self destructs
tasman, Jul 22 2004
  

       I'll re-phrase that then   

       Debauchery leads to self destruction
tasman, Jul 22 2004
  

       If you go far enough down, do you get to the meat locker?
5th Earth, Jul 22 2004
  

       Yeah, [jutta], found some of those myself... But, none of them swayed me away from the idea...   

       Life without works is dead, [tasman]... of course, I'm implying here that debauchery works...   

       Meat locker, ehh? well, I was trying to keep the family market alive, but if we must use rotting flesh as a symbol of our dedication to decadence...   

       So be it!

       That would only entice the midget population...   

       Wait... midgets? Mudwrestling??? TOTALLY FREAKING AWESOME?!?!?

       "Where the hell is the door out of this place? I'm gonna be stuck in here forever..." (+)
luecke, Jul 23 2004
  

       Oh right... yeah, dancers, I'm on that page too...   

       I'd say you could leave a trail of rice to find your way out... but that just gets funny when the floor is covered in rice...   

       "No, no, I got it covered. Ours is blue!"   

       Colored rice market, anyone?
daseva, Jul 23 2004
  

       Love the idea(+), but you have to fix the quote on the door, it was my favorite line from the book.
