CROUCH End residents have launched a campaign against an application for a lap dancing club on their door steps, threatening to demonstrate outside every single night.
More than 100 local residents gathered at the Music Palace in Tottenham Lane on Thursday (March 5) to discuss their concerns about an application to turn the music venue into a gentleman's club, with opening hours from 11am to 2am from Friday to Saturday and 11am to 12pm Monday to Thursday - closing at 10.30pm on Sundays.
The meeting was also attended by owners, Serdal Ziya and Denktas Hassan, officers from the council's licensing team and safer neighbourhood police officers.

Alison Lilystone, of Fairfield Road resident, said: "This is a residential area. How can I let my daughter out when there are people coming out the club extremely aroused looking for a woman?"
Father of four, Matthew Amos, added: "There will be a move by local residents to do something. We will demonstrate outside every single day and turn people away."

Owner, Serdal Ziya, said: "We don't want to cause trouble and we will take people's considerations into view.
"But we're just trying to earn a living. As a community, they have never wanted this place to go well and will disapprove whatever we do."
The application will be brought in front of the licensing committee this month (date to be confirmed).
