Wanna Buy a Fur-Lined Speedboat?

posted by on August 13 at 14:34 PM

Although Club Lagoon is no longer with us, its ghost still haunts Capitol Hill.


The Lamborghini that sits precariously perched above what was once a tacky Crockett-and-Tubbs-themed club could soon have a new owner.

According to a post on Craigslist, the club’s space is up for lease.

Prime Capitol Hill location! Beautifully built out slab granite bar; private ADA compliant bathroom; kitchen equipment in place, elevator, parking on site. 4,000 Square Feet net rentable. Asking $32.00 p.s.f. annual rent including CAM.

The ad does not indicate whether the new buyer will inherit Club Lagoon’s rooftop Lamborghini or fur-lined speedboat.

What else does Capitol Hill need these days? Another club?

Maybe the Castle Adult Megastore will expand upwards. Bethany Jean Clement reports that the bathrooms have great peep-show potential.

Listen kid, the world-famous Lamborghiniz Crew already has dibs on that car. OK?

Back up.

I miss the days when that was a Wherehouse Records on the bottom and Testa Rosa Pizza on top. (I can't remember what was there before Subway).

I am fucking old.

A poster/frame shop. Eclipse, I think.

Fucking older than you, apparently. :(

Surprising that it didn't work out...

I remember the frame shop. Thanks

That whole building is 80s West LA. Tear it down and start over again.

It should be reopened as Mr. Poe's House of Men.

Club Lagoon had failure written on it from day one. Certainly no self-respecting Cap Hill resident would have been caught dead there. And the car perched on top was beyond tacky. Good riddance!!!

Am I the only person who loves the cheesy outside. I love how over the top it is. I can definitely imagine a great disco night there. Maybe I'm alone with these thoughts?

I see a new location for Pony!!! Or Manray!!!

Come on people, can we make it a gay club on the hill? Those seem to be closing by the hour and BTW, why aren't we reporting on the PARKING lot that now stands where Pony and Manray once stood? That is a fucking hate crime!!! Grrrrrr!!!!!
