Posted Updated

RALEIGH — A proposed adult nightclub in Raleigh isdrawing the attention of City Council.

Two Florida men want to build a club, which will be called Rachel's,just outside Raleigh's northwest boundary, near the intersection ofHighway 70 and Westgate Road. The site is currently undeveloped, althoughthere are two adult book stores in the area.

Despite the location, some say a club that featurespartial and total nudity is a bad idea.

Raleigh City Councilman Marc Scruggs, Jr. says he's concerned.

According to David Permar, attorney representing Charles and JamesVeigle,the brothers who want to build the club, no misrepresentation wasintended.

The Veigle brothers own similar clubs in the Orlando, Florida area.They have reportedly made several financial contributions to thatcommunity, but have had some adverse public reaction to their businesses.
