Aircraft Strip Bar

Friday, 23rd May 2008 by

Just outside Lisbon Airport we can see an old jet airliner. Nothing unusual about that, clearly - however you'd have to go a very long way to find another aircraft that has ever been converted into a strip bar, complete with DJ booth in the cockpit!1

The aircraft is a relatively rare Convair 880 - there were originally 65 built, but today there are just 8 left in the world. Only one of these has been fully preserved: The Lisa Marie, which used to belong to Elvis Presley.

Unfortunately, you won't be able to pay this historical location a visit, as just a few weeks ago the strip bar was closed down and the plane destroyed.

So there's only 7 now.

Thanks to Frank.

  1. Can anyone find pictures of the inside of the club? ↩︎
