Julie's / Chicago Smokehouse / Chateau Gentlemens Club / Chateau De L'amour, 1321 Garner Lane: Summer 2011   5 comments

Posted at 12:56 am in entertainment,nightclub

Chateau Gentlemens Club was the follow-on operation for the building which formerly housed Touch of India, and you can still see the Indian motifs in the arches along the rooftop (though I suppose in this context you could see them as something else as well).

Garner Lane is the I-20 frontage road which you can only reach by taking the I-20 Eastbound on-ramp at Broad River Road. It's a somewhat difficult place to get in and out of, and somewhat difficult to figure out how to do that as well. I don't know if that had anything to do with this club lasting for a rather short period: It's only listed in this year's phonebook (Feb 2011), so I'm guessing less than a year.

It's listed in the phonebook as Chateau De Lamour, a name I'm pretty sure was on the I-20 visible sign at one point as well. I'm guessing that was too ambiguous to draw traffic.

The name of this little plaza has changed as well. Last year, it was Volaty Plaza, now it is S&B Plaza.

UPDATE 11 November 2011: Located the two pictures I took while the club was in operation, and added them as the first two above.

UPDATE 30 July 2012: Commenter badger suggests this was Julie's and then Chicago Smokehouse. I think he's right so I'll add those to the post title. I ate at this Julie's once long ago, but don't remember anything about it other than it did not give me food posioning like the one on Garner's Ferry.

  1. I saw a construction dumpster in front of this place the other day -- maybe something else is going in.

  2. One of my neighbors was trying to remember a steakhouse that was here back in the 1980s before I came along and thought I'd see if anyone here remembers it

  3. Wasn't this the Julie's location, or was it in a nother building? After Julie's left, I think it was called "Chicago Smokehouse," but that didn't last very long.

  4. I think you are right. I'll add those to the post title, and put a link in the main Julie's closing.

  5. I think that Steak and Ale was located in this building, as well...there was also one off of bush river on berry hill rd.
