Club Rouge attempting again for ABC permit

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A Shockoe Bottom strip club is trying again to get a permit to sell alcohol.

Club Rouge, which opened after former club owner Sam Moore's Club Velvet shut down last year, applied for the permit this month.

Under state law, the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Board can deny a permit for up to a year to a building where a liquor license was already taken away, even if its under new ownership.

The ABC is still deciding whether to grant Club Rouge a permit.
