The Men’s Club of Charlotte is a world renowned entertainment complex.Founded in 1996 as the fifth link in The Men’s Club growing chain, the Charlotte facility has a rich history. The actual building was originally a music hall in the 1950’s. It was dismantled and reconstructed in its current location at 444 Tyvola Road in the early 1970’s where it opened as“Plum Crazy”. This high-energy night club was the rage of Charlotte formany years and was famous for having a motorcycle hanging from the highest point of its 40’ domed ceiling. After the disco era faded so did the popularity of Plum Crazy and it eventually closed. The location then had a short revitalization as a country western dance hall. By the early 1990’s it was a building with a past but it didn’t look like it had much of a future. However that was not to be the case. Though disco had faded, the growth and social acceptance of upscale gentleman’s clubs had gained momentum in the late 1980’s and was in full stride going into the 1990’s. Two of the driving forces behind the new popularity were Thee Doll Housechain and The Men’s Club chain. Both had reputations for lavish facilities and beautiful women. Thee Doll House was an east coast chain and The Men’s Club was Texas based. The owner of Thee Doll House in Raleigh, NC saw the Tyvola location in Charlotte as an opportunity to have premier clubs in the two largest cities in North Carolina so he acquired the property and began renovations. Fortunately for The Men’s Club the cost exceed Thee Doll House expectations and the owner soon abandoned the project.Ironically, now almost 15 years later, The Doll House in Raleigh is a The Men’s Club. A real estate agent brought the project to the owners of The Men’s Club attention in 1993, the same year they were opening their 18,000 squarefoot location in Dallas, TX. The Dallas club opened to a huge success a motivated ownership to pursue additional opportunities. Charlotte held some interest but obvious research needed to be done. At the same time plans were already underway for the opening of The Men’s Club in Mexico City. A scouting team came to Charlotte to determine the viability of the Tyvola location and the feasibility of opening two large projects in two different countries in the same year. Charlotte met all the criteria of an ideal expansion location. It was a dynamic city experiencing tremendous growth. The city had a solid financial reputation and the city fathers were making bold moves to challenge Atlanta. They brought in NFL and NBA teams and the city supported both. The Tyvola location was just a couple of miles from the NBA stadium and just 12 minutes from the international airport. The decision was made to acquire the property. The result of that decision was a one-stop entertainment complex like none other in Charlotte.
