This Deja Vu (formerly Tuxedos) is the most dangerous/ghetto club of the 5 left in my area. I only continue to stop in because I've been going there for decades, have a VIP card (free entry), and have to see how the story (and possibly me) ends. Hopefully, this is the last straw. But there's been alot of last straws in the two years since Deja Vu took over. The 2 shootings/killings in 6 months article leaves out that every weekend there are less serious gun, drug, prostitution, and fight incidents. DG

Ghetto in Iowa?? Really. I flew into Des Moines years ago and drove to Ames… I didn’t see anything remotely dangerous. I was there when Alabama played notre dame in the national championship.

In Iowa the gang bangers will shoot you if you disrespect their corn crop.

City finally pulled the plug. No details yet, but the manager's text said closed for good. Actually, I can't believe it stayed open this long. Very sad though. Before Vu took over, Tuxedos was an amazing club. SoCo (Southern Comfort) and Daisy Dooks are now the only two clubs left in the Quad Cities/Davenport area.

All of the club's social media has been deleted. Must have been quite embarrassing for the corporate chain. The problem was on Friday and Saturday nights you'd have hordes of hood rats loitering in the parking lots drinking and smoking dope, and many didn't even pay to go inside the strip club.
