Laundromat Dance Club

A club where people can come to do their laundry and dance.

I would like to open a club that features a laundramat as it's 'hook'.

Waiting in line to get into the club with a load of laundry slung over your shoulder. There is a cover fee and an additional per load charge, but it's just enough to cover the costs of doing laundry (water, soap, elect, maintanice) as none of the machines take money. When you enter, on one side is a bank of washing machines, on the other, a bank of dryers (prefferably the ones with the big round windows). In between however is what sets this place apart... A dance floor , blacklights, and the some heavy techno beats being spun by the inhouse DJ. Beers and wines are served at the bar. There are also large lockers availbie for when you have finished the laundry but aren't quite ready to leave the party.

I imagine that "foam night" would also do very well in this sort of setting.

       well obviously i'm not going to mention every amenity that the place will have, that would take to long...

       Well if you give everything a humorous double meaning, like the previous example, it would take half as long.

       ....anticipating new dances, with names like "Spin Dry" and "Gentle Cycle"......

       I assumed this is what happens to my street clothes when I check into the Lotus. Some friends are going there Sat. night, I should be making them some LED clothes so they'll have something to wear but i can't be everywhere.

       Yeah, drop them pants, you like it like that.

       I like this idea. I suggest that women and men bold enough to take all their clothes off and wash them would get their drinks for free.

       [Pericles], This is all well explained in E.M. Forster's short story, "The Hedge", written 100 years ago, so we're not stretching anything here.

       Sounds strikingly like the Laundry Bar in Miami
