Remington's could be next Toronto strip club to close

The days of the strip club in Toronto appear to be coming to a close. Just as the neon signage has slowly been erased from the once sleazy strip of downtown Yonge St., that sex that used to define the place is also on the way out. The latest casualty looks to be Remington's, the mostly male strip club just south of Gerrard.

There's massive development in the cards for the area, and the strip club is not part of the plans. Remington's opened in the early '90s as a gay strip club before opening its doors to women a few years ago. It's unlikely that the club will continue in another location as new zoning by-laws make it nearly impossible to open in highly trafficked downtown areas.

Condos, it would seem, are the krypton for men of steel in Toronto.
