The FOX Showroom Pub in British Columbia
The Fox found its residence at The Red Lion Inn during the mid 1980’s. (The hotel was erected in 1967) Prior to The Fox becoming naked as we currently know it, the pub was home to a steakhouse for many years. Booking exotic dancers exclusively through Stripper Entertainment since changing to an exotic format in 1987, the bar flourished throughout the 90’s featuring A-Circuit dancers. The Fox fast became a starting point for many up n’ coming superstars in the adult entertainment industry. A multitude of Playboy Bunnies, Penthouse Pets, Hustler Honey’s and adult film stars all got their start at The Fox.
One of the last strip clubs to feature a bath tub on the stage, wet and wild encores were always a crowd pleaser at The Fox. Chants of “Shower! Shower! Shower!” eventually played favourite to audience demands, and the bath tub saw it’s final days in the latter part of 1993. The original stand-up cylindrical shower that accompanied the bath tub was replaced by a bird bath, and shower shows remained a staple for The Fox encores.
