Miss Kitty's Rocks For Last Time

Miss Kitty's Rocks For Last Time


After nine years as a major fixture on Hollywood's fetish scene, legendary club Miss Kitty's Parlour has thrown its last party and shut its doors. This past Friday, Miss Kitty's hosted a 9 Lives Anniversary Finale, an event attended by colorful cross dressers, energetic drag queens, muscled go-go boys, and the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.

Wearing black evening wear and eyeliner, the club's creators, Jame and Cristos Boulet took to the stage and addressed the flamboyant crowd. "We started Miss Kitty's as a sex-positive club, and it's been a crazy nine years!"

After nearly a decade in business, the club had developed an energetic and loyal following, due in part to its signature electro soundtrack and anything-goes attitude. "I think we showed people in Los Angeles that it's OK to mix together gay, straight, bi, transgender, drag, goth, rock, industrial, electro, rave, themes, leather, S&M, sexuality, porn, art, performance and whatever else you could think of, throw it together and mix it up in a room full of people, and it's safe, fun and we all fit in," said Miss Kitty's resident disc jockey, DJ Barbeau.

According to the L.A. Times, Miss Kitty's was no place to be a wallflower:

Each night, club-goers might be lured into taking part in a game of strip poker or blacklight Twister, try on a new look at the Wig Bar, or compete in scandalous onstage contests. "The bottom line was to encourage people to have fun and not take themselves too seriously," explained the Boulets.

Over the years, the club was also host to such celebrity acts as Dita Von Teese, Thrill Kill Kult, Mickey Avalon, Masuimi Max and shoe-shopping internet sensation Kelly, and Dirty Sanchez, who performed Friday night.

But while the Parlour is going away, the Boulet brothers are not. "We are definitely retiring the Miss Kitty's name," Jame says, "but we've got plans for the future."
