Strip Club Adopts Locally-Sourced Menu, Doubles Sales

A Vancouver gentlemen's club is starting to see record food and liquor sales after revamping its food menu earlier this year to feature all locally sourced meats and breads. According to CTV News, the new No. 5 Orange menu, which features "quality burgers, a few salads and a selection of gourmet hot dogs," has "more than doubled" food sales; the restaurant is "selling a ton of food now." The recent May menu admittedly sounds better than your average strip club's: it has a Classic Philly Cheesesteak with six ounces of "shaved AA prime rib," and Satay Kabobs of either free-range chicken, double-smoked pork belly, or wild sea prawn.

Manager Jeremy Rossier recruited local chef Stuart Irving to come up with offerings that were a "step up from that frozen cheap stuff" the club used to serve. So how did the partnership even happen? Irving tells Scout Magazine the No. 5 Orange was where he used to take the kitchen team from his now-closed Cobre for "pre/post service meetings" for "over five years." Because "it's like Cheers, but with boobs." So when he was approached by Rossier about revamping the food program, he agreed. The club is also "half a block away" from Irving's forthcoming restaurant Cuchillo, so it appears the decision was also practical. Check out the full updated menu below:
