ORGANISERS of a controversial exotic night at an Ipswich bar have unveiled male dancers introduced to give the venue a unisex appeal.

The arrival of the weekly event at Curve Bar, in Princes Street, which features women podium and pole dancing, has sparked controversy in the area with many people backing the evening but large numbers opposing it.

However the management of the event argue the evening, held every Thursday, is a classy and sophisticated affair suitable for both men and women.

They have drafted in several men to appear at the event over the coming months who will parade the venue and join in with the dancing.

Annamaya Salter, part of the management team, said: “Two of the men will appear every week and will walk around and dance with the girls.”

She added that controversy around the evening comes from a “misconstrued” perception about how the event is run.

She said: “People who have actually been really like it.

“Everyone has given us the green-light on the way it is run.”

“People who haven't been to this type of establishment before couldn't possibly comment as they haven't got a fair view.”

The launch of the exotic night earlier this month has polarised opinion in Ipswich with many people speaking out against the venture although support for the event has been strong as well.

Ipswich MP Chris Mole has previously said the he is not in favour of the night, arguing the event is not suitable for the town.
