Curves Cabaret, Tucson

Curves Cabaret, 2130 N. Oracle Road, shown on Sept. 11, 2020, has been ordered closed by the Arizona Department of Health Services. 

A Tucson strip club has been temporarily shut down by the state for violating requirements to social distance, require masks, avoid dancing and keep patrons seated.

Curves Cabaret, 2130 N. Oracle Road, was ordered to close immediately Sept. 9 by the Arizona Department of Health Services.

The department received a complaint about the establishment and a report from the Department of Liquor Licenses and Control.

The suspension order says department detectives “observed the establishment operating in violation of public health requirements, including violations of specific COVID-19 requirements.”

It remains in effect until Curves can show it is in compliance, said Jeffery Trillo, assistant director of licensing and administration for the state’s liquor department.

The club’s representatives, listed on state paperwork, did not respond to a request for an interview and the website noted that it was temporarily closed “by order of the state and to keep our guests and staff safe.”

The state requires restaurants and bar to keep six feet of distance between unrelated customers and prohibits dancing.
