2019 UpdateCBD Melbourne: Showgirls hits a silly season snag By Samantha Hutchinson and Kylar Loussikian December 12, 2019 - 11.59pm It's less than six months since Showgirls Bar 20 co-owner Michael Trimble announced Melbourne's late-night icon would return to its "spiritual home" on Melbourne's King Street after a three-year hiatus. But the strip club has been forced to postpone its grand re-launch, as it wrangles with the state's liquor regulator to get a liquor licence. The original Showgirls Bar 20 was the country's only strip club to be listed on the Australian Stock Exchange, until its owner Planet Platinum collapsed and was put in liquidation in 2015. The club survived the collapse, and multiple outbreaks of serious violence, to become a mainstay among King Street's gentlemen's clubs. But in 2016, the Rialto Tower co-owners, including Grollo Group, punted it from its King Street home as part of a long-term plan to gentrify the area. In June this year, a triumphant Trimble told The Age the club would be back up and running by October, in new premises at 195 King Street. The opening date was then pushed back to December, with a lavish opening night party planned for December 7. Last week, Trimble postponed the event, saying his team had been "completely blindsided" by an "unforeseen event". "We are cooperating fully with those that, for some reason, don't want to see us back," he said. "We are confident this will only be a minor setback and we will be back on track before we know it." On Thursday, Trimble said he had employed 70 dancers, more than a dozen bar staff and three managers who were waiting to get started at the club and wanted to get in before Christmas. "We're in limbo at the moment," he said.
