What is the address of the building? Looks like it's across from Cross Country apartments??
Another.."oppps" fire on the strip. No argument there. Lost my notes on where the bldg in this pic was on the Strip so will defer but wonder now about what it was.... I think I was going off of one of Brock's "now" comparison photos when making the guess. Can't recall.

Any guesses Monkspacemen?

Thanks for the info.

There's a building off Hwy.80 if you are heading East towards BPCC on the left that resembles this one. I'm thinking it's still some sort of bar or something?? Was Hwy. 80 considered the strip? I've never really known?

The one I linked to was right by E. Texas @ Hamilton.

There is another one out 80 that I can't remember the name of. I bet I haven't been there in 10 years, I remember there was no DJ, the girls played their own songs on the jukebox.

Amber Inn

It opened in 1946. P.B."Buddy"Lombardino and Carl Maniscalco were the proprietors. Carl was bought out shortly there after. It closed in 1978 and was bought and refurbished. In 1979 it became the China Inn which operated until 1990. It is now Action Central. From 1947 at its onset to the late 70's the 3 mile stretch of 80 was home to 64 cocktail lounges and numerous package stores. One day soon I'll map the Bossier Babylon with names of the lounges and addresses.

Sal - thanks for all the pix coming in (your captions keep me constantly amused. Marshmallows). Say - how are you going to map the strip? Memory? Just asking, I was thinking of finding a vinatge reverse phone directory or something for S'port....

Didn't "Action Central" pre-date this location? Like it was down on the S'port waterfront once?

Speaking of "or something" Pocahontas, this place or one like it close by on 80, had a door to the dressing room confusingly similar to the men's room so I walked right in and shut the door to see half a dozen gals looking up with grins. Hilarity ensued. Obviously not the 1st time it happened - they were good fun but beat it out of there before a less jovial bouncer appeared.

Action Central was on Commerce Street until some time in the late 90s/early 2000s. Then that location became "Legzz" (or something similar) and A.C. moved into the building in Bossier. That Bossier location had been another nudie bar before it was A.C., though. We used to go there but I can't remember the name.

I just emailed one of my dirtball friends I used to go there with, he'll remember the names.

It was Red River Cabaret. The other one was The Centerfold Lounge.

I've only been to a "men's club" one time and it was the Centerfold about 12 years ago. My "friends" kidnapped me and took me there, LOL. It was embarrassing if you ask me. I'm all for looking at beautiful naked women mind you, but not in front of a bunch of other guys doing the same thing. Just felt weird is all. I guess I could get used to it, but I'd rather hang out at the sushi bar.
