Club Fantasy Island, 3134 Two Notch Road: 2012   7 comments

Posted at 12:01 am in closing









"Boss! The Plane! The Plane!" — Sorry, but that had to be said

I'm not quite sure what is going on with Club Fantasy Island, a tiny strip club on Two Notch Road which basically shares a parking lot with the old Shrimper restaurant and the old Atlantic Twin Theater. (As I recall, the club got a bit of notoriety some years ago when there was a shooting in the parking lot, but I'm not sure if the incident was actually related to the club itself, a neighboring club, or was random.)

Anyway, I took these pictures back in early March 2012 because I had noticed that when driving down Two Notch at times the club should normally be open, it wasn't. I almost went ahead and did a closing on it then, but one night somewhat later when I drove by, it was open once more, and I saw it open normally after that. Then, in June, I think, it was closed again, so I don't know exactly what the status is, but if they re-open again, I'll just update the post title.

UPDATE 28 January 2022 -- This building has now been razed. Hope somebody got the neon sign:








Also updating tags and adding a map icon.

  2. I think this place was called "The Fortress" in the mid to late 1980s. Somebody told me it was sorta a private club that "allowed" only female customers.

  3. @Dennis: "It was so small inside that if a really built girl came onstage, they had to kick a customer out to make room."

    Thank you, thank you -- I'll be here all week! Try the veal!

  4. I remember when this placed got robbed back in the 90's. Some thugs came in and made EVERYBOODY including the patrons, get butt naked! Then they took the money and left.

  6. Columbia SC is known for its "Gentlemen Entertainment" mainly because we have Ft Jackson here. Fantasy Island had to be one of the worst. Inside small, non-friendly staff and was just tooo compact. One way in and one way out.

    Sigh, once again another blow to Columbia SC's image. Two Notch RD is so run-down in that area anyway. :(

  7. It was The Fortress for a while, but was not female only. Private owned. I think it may have been a Lesbian bar before it was The Fortress. I remember some of the writings on the bathroom wall and my Dad did some lock work there and said it was a Lesbian bar with very pretty women.
