Strip Club Meeting in Cordova




When the compound-esque building at 7955 Fischer Steel Road in Cordova was erected in early 2009, neighborhood leaders warned Cordovans that building owner Steve Cooper was possibly planning to open a strip club in the space.

But concerned residents backed off when Cooper, who also owns the Gold Club, opened Stella Marris as a steak and seafood joint rather than a strip joint. Stella Marris operated as such until earlier this year when Cooper closed the restaurant. In February, Cooper applied for a compensated dance permit from the city, but his efforts were halted when the Memphis City Council imposed a 60-day moratorium on issuing such permits.

Tonight (March 15th), the Cordova Leadership Council — the same group who held anti-strip club meetings in 2009 — is hosting a community forum to inform residents about what a compensated dance permit would allow Cooper to do at Stella Marris. The meeting begins at 6 p.m. at Advent Presbyterian Church at 1875 North Germantown Parkway.
