The million erotic dance club Scores Atlantic City, which will bring a major adult-themed entertainment venue to the resort, has been granted regulatory approval for a liquor license.
The club had been waiting for the approval in hopes of opening this summer. It was scheduled to open in September.
Scores Atlantic City will be the first strip club in an Atlantic City casino.
There have been other adult-themed shows in Atlantic City casinos, and the resort offers several strip clubs not located in casinos.
It has taken two years for Scores to get this close to opening since first getting regulatory approval from the state Division of Gaming Enforcement bin 2011. The approval allows Scores to feature dancers in G-strings and pasties.
Full nudity is not allowed at venues that serve alcohol in New Jersey, though some venues get around the restriction by serving sodas and allowing alcohol to be carried in.
