Aircraft Strip Bar
Friday, 23rd May 2008 by James Turnbull
Just outside Lisbon Airport we can see an old jet airliner. Nothing unusual about that, clearly – however you’d have to go a very long way to find another aircraft that has ever been converted into a strip bar, complete with DJ booth in the cockpit!1
The aircraft is a relatively rare Convair 880 – there were originally 65 built, but today there are just 8 left in the world. Only one of these has been fully preserved: The Lisa Marie, which used to belong to Elvis Presley.
Unfortunately, you won’t be able to pay this historical location a visit, as just a few weeks ago the strip bar was closed down and the plane destroyed.
So there’s only 7 now.
Thanks to Frank.
Can anyone find pictures of the inside of the club? ↩
