There are genius moves and then there’s the incredible genius move of taking a sports bar with a basketball court theme and adding in strippers and putting it all just down the street from Madison Square Garden. Our friends at Rick’s Cabaret announced today that they’re opening Hoops Cabaret and Sports bar next to the legendary Rick’s Cabaret on 33rd Street in Manhattan. Don’t like dark strip clubs where you can’t really concentrate on the game? Hoops has you covered. Are you bored during March Madness timeouts? You won’t be bored at Hoops.
Look at those TVs. Look at the setup. This place is going to be packed for football weekends.
From the Hoops Cabaret media relations department:
A subsidiary of RCI Hospitality Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: RICK) announced the “soft opening” of Hoops Cabaret and Sports Bar this Friday(September 30, 2016), starting 4 PM, with the Grand Opening Celebration to be held next week, Thursday-Sunday (October 6-9, 2016).
“Hoops Cabaret is the ultimate in ‘fantasy sports’ – the first venue of its kind in Manhattan to combine the fun of a sports bar with the excitement of a gentlemen’s club,” said Eric Langan, RCI President and CEO.
Key attractions include a bevy of beautiful ladies in sexy sports themed jerseys and cheerleading outfits. At 48 W 33rd Street, it is a block from Madison Square Garden and Penn Station and next to RCI subsidiary, Rick’s Cabaret New York, the No. 1 adult club in the city.

Shots flying. Fantasy football seasons transformed. I might just stop by on my next visit just to people watch.
