The ten-month-old Sin City sister club to NYC venue the Box is reportedly facing eviction following unspecified “violations of obscenity laws.” Norm Clarke writes that landlord Las Vegas Sands notified management at Simon Hammerstein’s the Act back in April that the club had violated lease terms with its envelope-pushing programming, and staff were told about the closure yesterday. At least they’ll always have the Lower East Side. [Las Vegas Review Journal, Related]
