"Naked Harem Club" El Paso, Texas
So yeah, this sign actually really exists! When I pulled up to shoot the sign the joint was completely shuttered, and the doors and windows were boarded up. So naturally it piqued my curiosity. What the hell was this place anyway? So I pulled over and did some Googling and the story behind this joint is wilder than the fabulously wild neon sign above it!
A sign in the front above the door still reads, "Not over 'til the party ends" but after reading about its contentious closure, it seems like the party finally ended for the owner after she received a 16-year prison sentence for engaging in organized criminal activity and promotion of prostitution.
But the neon work looks fantastic!
