Drake is opening a ‘classy’ strip club in Texas

Just hold on, we’re going — to Drake’s strip club?

Following his Summer Sixteen tour performance this weekend in Houston, Drake invited guests to a mysterious event called “The Ballet.” According to MTV, what Drake called a “new dance experience” turned out to be a first look at his forthcoming strip club.

Except he’s not calling it a strip club. Yes, there are dancing women featured on stages wearing nothing but bikinis. And yes, Drake made it rain with dollar bills. But Drizzy’s new place is a “classy” dance club, which he says will have a strict business attire dress code.

Here’s what he said in a video from the event on Monday:

“There’s a culture out there of dancing and it’s not about no strip club (expletive),” he explained in a video from last night’s event. “It’s about these amazing women that we’ve got in one spot, this music that we’ve got, this Houston culture that we’ve got. I just wanna let you know that I’m going to bring it to you in the most honest and genuine way possible.”

According to Drake’s Instagram, The Ballet will open up in early 2017. The post reads, “Tonight is a different take on how it should be done in Houston. Treat yourself don’t cheat yourself. Where the women are on a pedestal and the surroundings are unforgettable.”
