  On a drive yesterday afternoon along Washington Street in the South End of Waterbury it appears that Pandora’s Cabaret, a new upscale strip club is nearing completion. The parking lot is freshly paved, and gargoyle adornments have been afixed on two sides of the building and on top of twin turrets rising into the sky.

   The club, which was scheduled to open in June, is co-owned by Tammy Gomes, who told the media back in May that Pandora’s planned to hire “between 100 and 150 dancers”, and would have 45 full-time employees.

   Gomes told the Republican-American in May, “The club will have two bars, four VIP rooms, three private rooms, three stages and a shower show stall. The glass-encased showering vestibule will allow patrons to watch dancers bathe.”

   Ironically, the controversial strip club is located directly across the street from another controversial project in the South End, the First Light Generator. 

   A call to Pandora’s Cabaret to find out when they were opening for business rang for several minutes this afternoon with no answer.

The first new strip club to open in Waterbury in several decades appears near completition.

The club is expected to hire more than 100 dancers and has stated it will be an “upscale” strip club. This image is not from inside Pandora’s Cabaret. It is from Google images.

Two new gargoyles now rise into the sky above Waterbury, joining the ones looming over the city  from the Republican-American tower.
