"We had no idea it was coming in," Hilliard said. "It opened on Friday
night, and the neighborhood is in an outrage. We've had plenty of
problems with nightclubs here."
The most notorious problem club in the Tenderloin is Pink Diamonds, a strip club co-owned by Entertainment Commissioner Terrance Alan. Curiously, Power Exchange is opening at the address formerly occupied by Alan's now-defunct Blue Cube club. In a phone interview, Alan told SF Weekly that he no longer has any connection to the property.
Hilliard said she's "sure the neighborhood will organize" to express its displeasure at the presence of Power Exchange, but that she's not yet sure where to take complaints. A "first step," she said, may be to ask city agencies to look into whether the club has all its needed permits.
