NEW ORLEANS, Sept. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- On Friday, Aug. 31, 2018, Kirkendoll Management LLC (KM) closed on the purchase of The Penthouse Club – Tampa and immediately assumed operational control of the venue, under the direction of General Manager Jonas Hair.
The Penthouse Club – Tampa will be the fourth Penthouse Club and sixth gentlemen's club in the privately owned, boutique, hospitality-investment firm's portfolio. The new addition will serve to further expand the company's nightclub-industry reach outside of Louisiana, where its corporate headquarters and the bulk of its adult entertainment venues are located.
John Kirkendoll, founder and CEO of KM, and his corporate team are no strangers when it comes to running ultra-premium venues and crafting luxury experiences for their guests. The company's nightclub division boasts top clubs in major markets throughout the United States and The Penthouse Club – Tampa will be no exception.
"We're very excited about this purchase; we see a lot of similarities between the New Orleans market and the Tampa market and feel like much of what we do at our flagship club in the French Quarter will translate well to Tampa," said President and Chief Operating Officer Chuck Rolling. Rolling's team will initially focus on introducing new management and operations systems, in addition to an updated marketing plan. "We're bringing in one of our top managers from The Penthouse Club in New Orleans as the new GM - someone who has worked and trained with us for 19 years. He's more than qualified." The company plans an extensive remodel of the property beginning in late 2018.
