Swingers club can keep swinging in the “City of Churches”

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) – It seems the champagne inside the Champagne Club can keep flowing.

The club on Nuttman Avenue bills itself as a “lifestyle club” with a dance floor, poles, buffet and rooms with beds and “soft seating.” But some wanted it gone – arguing the sexual oriented business poses a health risk and has no place in the so called “City of Churches.”

But after a tie vote Tuesday night by City Council (three to three with one abstention), the club will remain open and the move by some to ban such business seemingly grinding to a halt.
