Nightclub adds tattoo, piercing to its services
A North Avenue nightclub will add a tattoo and piercing parlor and an alcohol-free area for patrons over the age of 18 after Mesa County commissioners on Monday approved a modification of the business’ premises.
Infinity Nightclub also will enclose its front patio and provide another area to serve alcohol.
Nightclub owner and General Manager Dave Like said the changes are intended to inject some revenue into the club during a down economy and what is typically a slower time of year and provide entertainment for a college-age crowd that isn’t yet old enough to drink.
He also acknowledged the tattoo and piercing services would represent a novelty for observers.
He assured commissioners that staff will ensure that no alcohol is served in the area designated for those 18 and older and that customers considering a tattoo or piercing aren’t inebriated.
“I understand it is my license at risk. If you are diligent in controlling it, the risk is less,” Like said.
Commissioners Craig Meis and Steve Acquafresca expressed some skepticism about the viability of the changes but supported them nonetheless.
“I wish you the best of luck with it,” Meis said. “Please be safe with it. Please manage it responsibly.”
