Adult entertainment club opens outside Meriden in Jefferson County

September 6, 2011


— An adult entertainment club that caused controversy for months has opened on the outskirts of Meriden.

The owner of the Oasis Saloon, Zach Snyder, says it opened Friday without any problems.

Jefferson County officials had rejected a permit for the business, noting it is less than 1,000 feet from Jefferson West High School.

In response, Highway Four Properties filed a federal lawsuit in March against the county seeking a jury trial.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the company and county reached a settlement in August. It dismissed the lawsuit and awarded no fees to either party.

The settlement agreement allows the club to obtain a liquor license; increases the capacity of the club from 60 to 186; and does not require the club to pave more parking area.

Adult clubs are, unfortunately, like dinosaurs, especially in Kansas. It would be great if one can last for a while.

While this club may attract people over 21 (and some under), "adults" are the crowd they will likely not attract.

Jeff County must have really screwed up in this thing. Sounds like the club owners got everything they wanted, and Jeff County got nothin.
