The city of Dallas says a man who claims his after-hours dance club is a church also operates a swingers club on a property licensed for a place of worship.
Dallas filed a lawsuit late Monday against Glenn Hudson, the owner of The Playground. The city said it is an unlicensed sexually oriented business that operates on a property in the 11300 block of Harry Hines Boulevard that has a certificate of occupancy as a church, mosque or synagogue.
In a court hearing Tuesday, Hudson said The Playground is a religious “outreach mission,” the Dallas attorney’s office said a statement.
Hudson similarly defended a business that was the subject of a separate lawsuit last week.
The city filed suit over after-hours dance parties held at a “drug-infested” club that does not have a permit to operate as a dance club. Hudson told the city Darkside is a youth outreach ministry, according to court documents.
According to court papers, a three-month Dallas police investigation of The Playground indicates it is a swingers club that “caters to adults, often couples, who wish to engage in random consensual sexual activities on-site with adults other than their spouses.”
Hudson allegedly shows pornographic videos on big-screen televisions and has topless dancers. Court documents also said a VIP area offered beds, condoms and more pornographic videos.
