Loughborough Echo - - NEWS - By Liam Cole­man liam.cole­man@trin­i­tymir­

A NEW gen­tle­men’s club has opened in Lough­bor­ough and owner Roxy Love, who has spent 13 years in the in­dus­try, has told the Echo how she wants to change the “slouchy” stereo­type of clubs like hers.

Roxy, 32, from Kent, said that she is “ex­cited” to open her first gen­tle­men’s club in Lough­bor­ough be­cause she thinks the area is “per­fect” for it.

The club opened at 7 Devon­shire Square on Fri­day, Septem­ber 8 and Roxy said that she is hop­ing to change the opin­ion of peo­ple in the town of clubs like her own.

She said that she plans to do this by run­ning events such as a ‘ladies only night’ and of­fer­ing stu­dent dis­count.

Roxy said: “I have been in the in­dus­try for 13 years and I know what makes a good club, and what doesn’t.

“I think that it is re­ally im­por­tant that we have a good pro­file in the town, and that is ex­actly what I want to do.

“I know that in the past the club has had a bit of a slouchy rep­u­ta­tion but that isn’t what we want to be known like at all.

“I re­ally like Lough­bor­ough and I think that it is the per­fect area for me to start the club and it is re­ally ex­cit- ing.

“There are a lot of ar­eas around the town cen­tre that I think will at­tract a dif­fer­ent type of clien­tele to the club in comparison to those that have came in the past.

“I have changed quite a few things to the club, and I am hop­ing that it brings some­thing new to the ta­ble.”

Roxy said that the club is cur­rently open un­til 2am al­though she is hop­ing to get an even later li­cense so that they can at­tract more peo­ple to the club on their way home.

She said at the mo­ment the club has six dancers.

“They are great girls, and at the mo­ment it is a small group but they have a lot of in­dus­try ex­pe­ri­ence, and it has a re­ally good feel about it.”
