Platinum Pleasures strip club reopens as juice bar

A strip club in the Bronx has recently reopened and reinvented itself.



Platinum Pleasures, a strip club that was known for gun battles, stabbings and serving liquor without a license, has opened once again, this time as a topless juice bar.



The previous owner says the new owner bought out the remaining five-year lease along with its showers and stripper polls.



A Hunts Point church was hoping to move in to the facility, but because of a lack of money, it never happened.



Community Board 2, which represents the area, says it hopes crime does not spike again with the club back open.
