SULPHUR, La. — A subsidiary of Rick's Cabaret International Inc. has opened a new Temptations gentlemen's club in Sulphur, La.

Eric Langan, president and CEO of Rick's Cabaret, said that the location — close to the L'Auberge Hotel & Casino in Lake Charles and nearby the CITGO Lake Charles Manufacturing Complex — is ideal and that the 6,000-square-foot club has a 24-hour liquor license.

"This is a terrific location for us," Langan said.

The Sulphur club's property was purchased last month for $850,000 with a downpayment of $50,000, the company said.

Rick's Cabaret operates 37 clubs nationwide with five more under construction, including one in Los Angeles County that will launch next month and a second in the Fashion District of Midtown Manhattan.

The new Los Angeles and New York clubs will be called Vivid Cabaret.
