The Bar's Original Name Was: Chix on Dix
Power Strip Address: 403 S Dix St Detroit, Michigan 48217
Chix on Dix is a Detroit “Gentleman’s club” that was featured on Season 4 of Bar Rescue. The bar’s original name was a play on the fact that the bar is located on Dix St. in Detroit Michigan.
Jon Taffer isn’t known for rescuing strip clubs, so this one is actually a fairly unique Bar Rescue Episode. In the episode, we learn that the dancers at Chix on Dix are from from sociable and that fact is making the bar lose a substantial $5,000 per month.
Darren, the general manager, is clearly struggling to make ends meet. Dancers drink and sleep on the job and there just generally aren’t many enforced rules at the club.
As part of the makeover, Jon Taffer fired much of the existing crew and renovated the place with new drink systems and poles. He also renamed it to Power Strip.
Power Strip Update - What Happened Next?
After the episode aired, it appears that the Chix on Dix team accepted Jon’s name change. On all of their social profiles, they referred to the club by its new name of Power Strip.
It’s hard to tell whether Jon’s changes actually made patrons happier as not many people review strip clubs on Yelp.
But what I can say is that Power Strip is no longer open. In June, 2016, Power Strip closed its doors for good. The bar was listed for sale with an asking price of $600,000 (eventually dropped to $500,000), which include the liquor license, topless license, land, and all equipment.
It’s unclear whether new ownership has moved in, but what is clear is that Power Strip and Chix on Dix are gone for good.
