The iconic neon sign will again illuminate the street outside the notorious strip joint at 11332 Lake City Way N.E. But Rick's now belongs to the Déjà Vu chain, and is officially renamed "Dreamgirls at Rick's." The new owners say it's been remodeled, and that they "intend to operate the most beautiful club in the area, attracting the most beautiful women."The club, which unfortunately for many years has helped define our corner of Seattle, was seized by the federal government as part of racketeering charges against former owner Frank Colacurcio, his son Frank Jr., and their associates in 2010.
Lake City is also home to Pandora's Adult Cabaret and the Deja Vu chain's other club north of 145th.
A two-alarm fire on July 28th at the club delayed the remodel and reopening of the club.
