Former Cheaters club reopens as 'Wild Zebra'

Colin Spence - PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) -- The Cheaters Gentlemen's Club will reopen Tuesday under a new name and new ownership.

Eyewitness News learned back in January that Christopher Vianello, of Biscayne Entertainment, Inc., had bought and renamed the club the Wild Zebra Gentlemen's Club.

The former Allens Avenue strip club received heat after a missing 15-year-old Boston girl was caught working as a dancer in August of 2013.

The club was given a $5,000 fine and a 45-license suspension. Soon after, the City Council approved an ordinance that would shut down any adult entertainment establishments caught employing underage workers or allowing prostitution on their premises.

There was also another incident with a dancer at the club being charged with prostitution.

The Wild Zebra Gentlemen's Club will open its doors at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday.
