Current as of 12/19/18: Foxy Lady closed by licensing board PROVIDENCE -- The Providence Board of Licenses voted Wednesday to permanently revoke licenses for the Foxy Lady strip club, closing the legendary gentleman’s club for good. The club can appeal the decision, which led to audible gasps and protests from Foxy Lady supporters who crowded the fifth-floor room where the board met. The Foxy Lady, on Chalkstone Avenue, had been ordered temporarily closed since shortly after the arrests of three employees on misdemeanor prostitution charges on Dec. 11. That gave the board a chance to consider city officials’ recommendation that it close. On Wednesday, they acted, shuttering the strip club in part because it hadn’t come to the table for a plan to fix its problems. The decision was three votes to one. City and police officials said the management was well aware of what was happening at the strip club, which has been in business for nearly four decades, with one major calling it a “prostitution parlor.” A lawyer and a manager for the Foxy Lady denied they had anything to do with prostitution and asked for the club to be reopened.
